    A7SIII came out half a year ago. It's called Panasonic S1.

    No, I really don't know enough about it yet to offer any meaningful comments.

    Is it for that (new eng) camera.. or a possible upgrade to smaller cameras (either as FW or just in furutre models)

    doubtless it would be an upgrade on the little cams.

    Another thing - why are the ENG cams still so big? They have not got smaller since the tapedeck was removed.
    Id love a small 2/3 camera with a half decent look

    I'd think, since they have a fixed long heavy zoom, they might as well have some balance for the shoulder mounting. Hypothetically, of course, they could have gone to a smaller, smartphone size, sensor and smaller zoom a la Nikon 1000. But ... this is a high end pro camera and they want low light capabilities too for their late afternoon golf, bike/auto racing coverage.

    See the answer above. Smaller is not a desirable feature for ENG cameras. Function dictates form and the Betacam/F800/F900/Z450 form factor is just about perfect for handheld shooting and even by far the best for tripod.

    It would be a step up in a mirrorless, but not as 'good' as the FS7?
    I don't trust CODEC comparisons based upon specs. I want to see comparisons based on actual footage shot because the implementation of a CODEC is everything.

    When ALL-I 400 Mbit 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 encoding was added to the Panasonic GH5 there was essentially no visual difference when compared to Long GOP IPB 150 Mbit 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 footage, but depending on what you were shooting you might see some differences in motion cadence. ( Long GOP is not a good choice for fast moving subjects ) I would expect similar differences with Sony Long GOP IPB 200 Mbit 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 footage.

    Are you talking about matching recording formats? -- or matching color?

    The problem with matching color is that you need to pick something to match to -- maybe the Venice? or F55? or my old favorite, the F3? I personally am not interested in using the color from the FS7 as a standard to match to.

    Sorry, but this is just nonsense.
    Also, there is no difference motion cadence wise.

    The only advantage an all-intra encoding has over long-GOP is that non-sequential frame seek time is much faster when you edit clips.

    I remember a thread from 5-6 years ago where people were comparing frames of fast moving water that were using IPB compression against ALL-I, and there were motion-cadence distortions appearing in the IPB footage that were not appearing in the ALL-I footage. I've also seen this done with fast pans of people walking/running, where the motion in the IPB footage did not look as natural as the ALL-I footage.

    I've never heard of any shooter choosing ALL-I recording over IPB compression because it's easier to edit. ( I know that there can be a big difference, especially with h.265 compressed footage, but I've never heard of anyone saying "I shoot ALL-I because I want easier to edit footage". )
