    3 things for an AF successor

    OK, so if Jan has genuinely been asking around for some thoughts on what we'd like to see in an AF successor (true Jan?) then I think we should have a thread that's simple to read and DOESN'T have any of the all too frequent gripes and moans. If you don't like the AF100 or it's future potential, then get something else please and enjoy using it. So, this a list: you're allowed to name THREE things you'd like to see altered/improved in the next iteration of the camera. Here's mine:

    1 - 10 bit 4:2:2
    2 - Improved line resolution / sharpness
    3 - Higher bitrate codec, either AVC-intra on P2 or selectable Pro-res/dnxhd on ssd


    edit: ooh, I've been made a sticky!

    1 - Higher Resolution
    2 - Significant Improvement in DR
    3 - Dial in (ex. from 100-3200+) ISO/Gain while recording

            1) 10 Bit 4:2:2 10 Bit recording internal & SDI out
            2) More image quality (NO MORE BANDING !!!!! NO MORE BANDING !!!)
            3) More dinamic

              1-Better dynamic range
              2-10 bit 4:2:2
              3- Better resolution

              And if sticking with m4/3 a line of cinema style lenses. Better native glass options would benefit current owners as well as future buyers of an m4/3 camera.

                1. More filmic/Less video-ish look
                2. More resolution
                3. 1:1 magnification. I would rather trust my eyes than the camera!

                  3: Improved highlight rolloff

                    1. Sharper
                    2. 1:1 focus assist during recording
                    3. Overcrank/burst modes for slo-mo, similar to what Sony has - 720p at 120fps for 12 seconds would be Awesome.

                      Better dynamic range
                      Focus 1:1 (+ ETC mode for certain situations - thank you very, very, much)
                      100/120 fps

                      (Better resolutions is nice but me belives higher dynamic range is more important for picture quality)

                            FWIW, Zeiss has an entire lineup of CP.2 and LWZ.2 cine glass in m43 mount

                            ...and it's not very difficult to cinemod Voigtlanders or any other manual stills lenses

                              Having now bought a 250 that is absolutely superb it would be nice to have a camera that compliments it with shallow DOF.
