    Oh, I got some good news. The demand for A7IV is so high, Sony is issuing apologies for being unable to meet the demand. And the odd thing is that they are not even offering it in the US yet. (this is where I was right .... the camera is becoming a huge hit)

      The R6 has already been a huge hit for the last 1.5 years so doing the same was a no brainer.

      One overheats and the other has a crop; and then they're even.

        Most of the time a DSLR would be faster. Apps like Filmic Pro let you set exposure pretty fast. If you are doing weddings I would want to use a DSLR over a phone.

          So you want buttons and dials all over a phone? That might get kind of bulky. Again apps like Filmic Pro you just tap and swipe. I like the dials and buttons on my DSLR and it is easier, but sometimes the iPhone works good and a lot more mobile. Really two different things. I remember going from my DVX100b to a DSLR for video. I thought it really sucked at first.

            The idea that DSRLs are fast to adjust is a joke.. in fact I dont realy find anything fast to adjust.

            When I was a kid I did Mick Jagger getting out of a car. He arrived. He was gone. Taught me was fast is.

            Really I cant see anything but a on lens iris being yankable mid shot.

            I had the fs7 pretty good. ND wheel, on lens iris - 5500->3300 switch, S+Q button

            In fact is there anything else to change?

            Basically these cameras have too much you can change.

              I'd be happy if the camera did all the work, but I guess you have to make some adjustments. Using an app like Filmic Pro isn't a big deal to set exposure. I do like AF. My eyes are not getting any younger and I want a camera I can trust to focus. My iPhone 12 Pro Max does a nice job.
              What I want from Panasonic is good AF and stabilization.

                      Well, it's not good news for me if I want to order one. Except inasmuch as it indicates the healthy continuation of the company and industry

                        I find it funny in a Gh6 thread we mostly talk about what the competition is doing.

                            The GH5 was released in 2017 so it's 4 going on 5 years. What is the standard time between camera models? Maybe what's more at stake is the amount advancement. Meaning 5 years wait is worth it if they actual spent the time developing a significantly better camera.

                              Or one could consider that the entire industry is a one-and-a-half player system anyway, with minor competition between Canon and Sony, and you're in a Sony ecosystem already. And Panasonic will be forced by A7IV to up its game on a similarly priced camera, although it should have done a major upgrade on the GH-series long ago regardless.

                              From the economics perspective, this is how a monopoly works, whose main propose is maintaining profit margins rather than the overall profit levels. It's very typical for a cartel - although the Middle Eastern OPEC+ members are having other thoughts these days - including Japan and the 1920's-1945 Germany.

                              Meanwhile, the smartphones are swallowing not only amateur but the advanced shooters as well. And, when the smartphones sales and their profit margins begin to decline, the manufacturers there just might offer more than a digital zoom on a high res sensor.
