    I find it inconceivable that Canon would make their own sensor with 8Kís worth of pixels and a faster readout than any previous Canon sensor but not follow up with the software support for 8K video....

    Youíre better informed than I am about rumours and such. However, I see no reason it wouldnít have 8K video if it had the pixel count to do it (about 40 megapixels with a 3:2 aspect ratio sensor)....

    How similar remains to be seen. I suspect not very. This would be Canonís first stacked CMOS sensor, presumably manufactured on the antique fabs Canon canít afford to get rid of. What scope does that...

    There are Micro Four Thirds lenses that do that. However, they donít need to in order for 8K to show more detail than 4K. They only need to transfer non-zero contrast at spatial frequencies above 4K...

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the C200. It remains an interesting camera in a load of ways.

    But if you now own a C200, an FS7, and a Z6, probably with a slew of lenses, would not a...

    Third-party E-mount lenses are native, though. Theyíre not reverse-engineered hacks like the third-party lenses for EF-mount and F-mount. They work well and can be expected to work with future...

    About the S5 autofocus, ahalpert seems confident, but my experience with DFD autofocus in the GH5S (great camera for the money in many ways) has not been encouraging.

    Which three primes would those be? Seems like thereís a lack of lightweight reasonably priced glass for L-mount.

    How about this:

    Less expensive than the rigs often discussed here and not quite cutting-edge, but, I posit, highly capable all the same.

    Mechanically, it offers good scope for adaptors: it has a particularly short register distance and particularly wide throat. (This also allows great freedom of lens design.)

    But that’s only half...

    Nikon is practically there, technically, with the Z6 II and Z7 II. The interface for controlling the autofocus is slightly more complex (not by much, really). But the bigger problem is perception....

    But the GH5S has the same low rolling shutter as the BGH1 (~11 ms readout time). A lot better than most full-frame sensors except the α7S III (~8.5 ms). Even the new α1 that I...

    Good stuff! Held my interest throughout, and I’ve never heard of you, Sharon, or the actors so have no vested interest in being interested, if you catch my drift. Having a story that resonates with...

    Maybe Panasonic will enable Raw output on the GH5S around the launch of the GH6? The purpose being to keep recent buyers of the still-expensive GH5S happy, should the GH6 be a compelling update...

    Pretty much all of the new Nikkors are optically best in class. Even the Ä500Ė600 f/1.8 primes are...
