I can't believe things have been silent about the GH6 for this long. Gosh, it better be a good one after all of this time and competitor development!
    Hopefully a good one and at a good price.

    The big camera companies should notice how Apple can do things. Like making a camera that can focus. The new 13 will have some nice new features including Pro Res and it can focus. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3CZX-lnAIc

    Apple is allegedly ordering 100 million A15 chips from Taiwan Semi. That's one client from one supplier. The chip itself runs about $40. An average car has about $600 worth of chips (electric about $800), which averages 25-30 per automobile. There are about 80 million cars manufactured per year (projections for 2021). That's over 2 billion chips required by the car industry. Smartphones account for a couple billion more. Computers gobble up another chunk. The whole semiconductor industry is generating about $700 billion in sales annually.

    A popular camera sells 50,000-100,000 units per year. And uses one chip. So, I don't think it's the chip related problem.

    Side note, A7IV delayed release has likely more to do with the NAB than with the chips. Sony's streamer is on the 10th. One has to think that A7IV will be part of it. If not, it's not showing up on store shelves any time soon.
