    Well, I think my previous comment was that the fault was relatively minor (compared to some of the comments that were made) - but WAS there, needed to be addressed, and probably would be able to be...

    I'd be a little bit careful, because whilst I largely agree with you then yes - there are lots of other things, see above post. Basic colour matrixing, edge enhancement and a host of others. Which is...

    But surely most of what may be considered the colour science of the camera - it's "mojo" - comes after deBayering? Things such as colour matrixing, flare correction, gamma adjustment, DR handling...

    "Stunning" as the Varicam 35 RAW may well be, it's uncompressed. And if we are thinking about 4K/60p, that means massive files. Massive, massive files, and a huge datarate which consequently means...

    Well, not only is it subjective anyway, but nowadays the "look" of any camera in a class is far more down to setup, grading etc etc anyway. Gone are the days when there really was a manufacturer...

    No, I'm not missing the point, and certain features are (or are not) a matter of fact - not "a preference thing".

    Such as (just for example):
    Global shutter. With all else equal, would anybody...

    Looking back at earlier posts, it's pretty well exactly what I was expecting. And frankly, exactly what Panasonic should have come out with at least 4 years ago. Or given they read the whole large...

    I'm left a little confused by that report. The main stated advantage behind developing OPF as I understood it was to end up with a stacked design capable of R,G,B on each photosite (so three OPF...

    I think it's a different point. Starting here from what is known - which is not a lot! - it's a question of trying to work out a "best guess" of what might be coming soon. OK, may be simpler just to...

    That wouldn't work. For QFHD we are talking about 3840x2160 photosites in an s35 area with the Varicam sensor. Use a centre crop to correspond to the area of 16:9 4/3 and it must mean roughly half...

    Maybe the question is whether anybody IS going for it, at that price? :) Which may explain what is to be announced. A way of cutting the cost without being seen to actually cut the cost, if you see...
  13. FS5: Point I was making was that slog ISO ratings...

    Point I was making was that slog ISO ratings cannot be directly equated to ISO ratings in other modes. So yes, it's 0dB, and s-log ISO 3200 equates to ISO 1000 if you expose-to-the-right by a stop or...

    But you have to ask WHY the image quality fell short of what had been hoped for. Fundamentally, it wasn't because of 4/3 chip size as such - but it WAS because to make the project viable Panasonic...

    Main issue for many is that RAW is only available as an uncompressed option, which makes it a non-starter for many cases. The datarate/file size of something like the F55 in RAW mode is bad enough,...

    Use s-log and ISO rating takes on a different nuance - it's wrong to directly compare ISO at s-log with other modes.

    As illustration, then for many scenes and s-log use, it's recommended to...

    Since we're into guessing, my money would be on a "one piece" Varicam 35. (Rather than the current dockable recorder, and choice of s35 or 2/3" front ends.) For the high end market it's in, I get the...

    Are there "bitter" complaints about the FS5? That's far from the impression I get. All I've heard are a few low level things (only two outputs at a time, no waveform display - just zebra and...

    I totally agree. There's little point in trying to set up LCD/vf as an exposure guide - a setting that's correct in one lighting condition will give totally the wrong result in another.
