    Are you talking about maybe this video? If you would, please point me to the video and time counter. I'm sorry, I tried to watch it through to make sure it had the comparison you mention, but I'm allergic to Youtubers and am begging for mercy so I don't have to watch for all 12 minutes.

    Despite not sitting in front of a 4K monitor at a point blank range and only looking at thumbnails via YouTube.
    I'm not sure what this means. After you point out where the video segment is, can you tell me a little bit more about how you watched it? What was the resolution of your monitor, and how far away from it were you?

    If you aren't watching 8K video at 8K, then you may well like what you see, but I don't see how it could be the resolution that you like.

    Oversampling for more accurately resolved lower resolution output?

    I read if they choose to employ a 16:9 ratio sensor, the resolution can be in the mid 30's MPX for 8k video. But, I am to the point that I think they need to do something soon as the whole thing is becoming irrelevant to some extent. If Panasonic waits too long Sony will have the A7IV out for the same or less money and the GH6 will be an even tougher sell imho. I was expecting this camera to be announced in the summer with a fall delivery. Here we are in Feb. and not even a teaser. Makes me think they are in the weeds or waiting for the super sensor the Sony is supposedly making. But 40+ MPX on a M4/3rds just to have the resolution seems like a move too far in one direction. I guess it all depends upon the speed of the entire system. If the high MPX is at the cost of other functions like HFR or noise then it is a poor choice imho. The M4/3rds format has a processing edge against the FF sensors. To me, these camera should be able to do gymnastics like 4k240. It should at least have killer 1080p240 or they are wasting the smaller format. The main reason I want to upgrade from my GH5 is the noise performance. I love IBIS so the GH5s is out. I am still waiting but not patiently

    It begins at ~ 3.10 in.

    Potato Jet, Peter McWhatsit, the Finnish Canadian and all the other guys are entertainers but not working for clients. So who cares what they think about 8K?

    I moved from Panasonic (EVA1, S1, GH5, GH5s) to Canon. I sold every thing except both GH5 cameras. I thought I would keep at least one as they are very handy for rigging in tight spaces with a suction cup or a clamp. The XLR adapter is sth I miss on the R5. I didn't use them since I have the C300iii / R5 so they might go with a tear in my eye too. They are really tiny beasts still after that may years but it makes no sense to keep gear I don't use.

    Yeah my GH5 isn't going anywhere. If you don't push the limits of its sensitivity or DR, and if you don't need autofocus, it's still a champ. Good for macro as well due to the crop. Very handy for an extra camera angle, and the resale value hardly merits selling it. But I suppose that a sony a6xxx could replace it for me, or an APS-C canon body for you, and for <$1500

    the horrible wobbly a6300 with the awful rolling shutter made me test the GH5 and that was the 1st step into the Panasonic world. I can't imagine going back to these.

    Haha I expect that the latest are much improved. If they make a 10-bit internal a6xxx with 4k60p I will give it a hard look, if only because I already have an A7SIII and e-mount lenses. I mean - sony is class-leading in rolling shutter on several cameras at this point. They could screw up the APS-C body, but I bet it will be passable

    Completely agree. My GH5 is still my A-cam for certain shoots like outdoor run and gun stuff. But even if it weren't, it still is the very best extra camera to have in my bag.
