    ya but even there you deliver lower resolution, which is why many shooters prefer anamorphic out of 16:9 or 4:3. With the GX8 sensor, GH5 should have the sufficient oversampling for a much more detailed 2.4.

    Newer chip technology - going down to 14-16 nM from 20-22 - should have fewer heat issues. New batteries - and Panasonic is a major global battery manufacturer - should have more juice for a small fan.

    and that! ;) - why can't anyone engineer a built in locking port for HDMI? HDMI and the extra time money and hassle it takes to find solutions to it's fundamental weakness are a PITA! Same goes for recorders such as the Shogun and standalone monitors (ok some of those like certain ruige models have built-in locks, but as everyone knows, this practice is far from the norm).

    all they really need to do is recess the hdmi port maybe a 1/4", thus the connector sheath takes the strain and not the connector

    That's interesting! - I'd be keen to see how that could be implemented into the existing form factor without issues. Remember, On-board, 10 bit 4.2.2. Pro-Res HQ processing @ 4K is also likely to be factor as to weather or not this is possible in such a compact system.

    I'm not saying it's impossible because I don't know, but it would sure be good to find out. I wonder if Atomos has the tech to successfully make a '4K Shogun Star' along the same lines as the 'Ninja Star' without overheating? Of course the sensor is taken out of this equation, but I can imagine that the heat issue is still not a trivial thing to solve.

    Exactly Darren, It ain't rocket science! - unless there is some kind of pact going on with third party accessory manufacturers (I'll break out my Tin-foil hat)

    Other companies are making full size locking connectors, here's an example:

    Like I said earlier, I know that they do exist, but they are far from mainstream. It's fair to assume that there is a reason behind this, but maybe not necessarily. Hard to know unless we were privvy to the decisions of the group behind the HDMI standard.

    Intel said (and, yes, I just Googled for this) back in 2013, when the 14 nM chips were still in the final stages of development, that they'd have a 30% better power management than their 22 nM based processors. How exactly that translates to the photo/video cameras - I have no idea. Mind you, these 14 nM chips only began to ship in numbers in the second quarter of 2015. Samsung and LG also have those (or similar) 14-16 nM processors. Qualcomm is not shipping their 14 nM Snapdragon 820 yet but they're going to be made at the Samsung fab anyway. In any case, by the spring 2016, 14-16 nM processors should be in every new smartphone ... and maybe camera too.

    As to the batteries, that GigaFactory that Panasonic and Tesla are building in Nevada should begin a partial run by the end of 2016/early 2017. Musk said that it should drop the pricing to $150-$170/kWH from the current $300'ish (or 40%-50%) but there are a lot of big boys muscling onto that territory as well.

    Do Panasonic have their own sensor technology they are working on or does everything trickle down from Sony?
