    Hey guys

    Just curious if anyone has used this camera? The quality seems very decent and 10-bit 4K 120fps is super tempting as a b-roll cam for my c300mkii as a-cam. No clue about their zlog yet, havenít heard a ton but it looks nice.

    Thoughts?

    Long set-up for that one. But kind of a softball, too...

    I have one. So far, I really like it. I’m taking some time to get to know it well before I post much about it. Out-of-the-box reviews, in my opinion, are relatively useless. It takes time to learn a camera’s system thoroughly, and to sort out any quirks (and every camera has them, no matter how much you spend) that it may have in getting it set up and rolling for a real shoot and not a backyard “test” video.
    Nobody notices audio... until it's not there.

    Let me know your thoughts! I've got a GH5 already as my b-cam so it seemed like it would fit in terms of similar sensor and mount as a third camera. I wouldn't rely on it regularly but there's nothing even remotely close to this price point that does 120fps 4k with full sensor readout and a respectable codec, that's quite impressive.

    But that's because you had one, then traded it with the new Aputure COB for Kinefinity Terra and the CineForm Raw license.
