    From the latest news I've heard, Best Buy maybe not be around two years from now.

    1000 stores .... they may close 40-50 .... their revenues are up significantly in 2020 and in Q1 of 2021 ...

    Side note, I knew one of their ex-presidents ... never thought of him highly, couldn't believe he even got anywhere close to that level .... but he didn't last long ...

    Getting back on topic...

    The GH6 - The only thing that could induce me to buy it would be if it had a killer feature that was not available anywhere else. For me, that would be the ability to record 8K at 60P. Nobody else can do that presently. They all top out at 30P. Is 8K 60P doable? Who knows. But there is some precedent. Panasonic was the first to introduce 4K at 60P in a mirrorless camera (GH5). So, maybe, just maybe...

    The 12K URSA can do 8K/120p, full sensor DCI. And 2:4:1 8K/160p.

    RED's Monstro can do 8K/60p too, maybe some others.

    I should have said, "anywhere else at a reasonable price".

    Depending on who you ask, $10K could be considered a once in a lifetime price for that kind of camera at this time, but I hear you...I think more will come soon.

    Companies will continue to slowly milk us as they always have, but 8K/60p should come sooner than 4K/60p did.

    Interesting. I’ve never once been “milked” by a camera company. Making a bad purchase decision, or unnecessarily chasing the product release cycle leads to a poor ROI among other things, but those are self inflicted wounds.

    As to the question at hand, I’d like a GH6 if it was an AF200. At his point Panasonic would do well to ditch the DSLR hybrid form factor. Let the G9 be a stills centric cam and the GH5 successor be motion centric. They are going to age tougher time selling this as an optimal hybrid cam with FF hybrids eclipsing M43 stills capabilities.

    An 8K 60P version of the BG-H1 with BRAW would be great.

    Interesting that you mention BRAW, because at 8K 60P the codec is going to be a major issue. H265 is a decoding nightmare at those pixel counts. But BRAW is aptly suited for this task. Would be nice.

    If BM brought out a Pocket 8K Pro that may be the next for me. I am sure they have the technology from the 12K and it will be interesting to see if they do that. An 8K MFT would also work for me to go with my GH5 and GH5S.
