        I have seen for nit less than 2400. I have made a think tÚ the Mark 1 because can be found at good price, but i found not good review, also seems a big object tÚ carry around, isnt'it?

And no overheating and no silly 30 minute record limit with S5ii.
          The R6 is a better camera for taking stills but that's it. As I say just adapt Canon ef lenses and you don't have to fully commit to Panasonic, can always pick up a Canon camera with XLR and nd when needed
          Well this is interesting. So my silly post want entirely a waste of pixels.

          I think I structured a good argument for putting bucks into canon/sony glass, probably canon as it will work with many 'proper' video cameras.

          And you come back suggesting the Panicsonic is a good choice for hanging on the back of your Canon glass.

          And it may well be so I will be checking that out.. because per se im not a fan of the R6 .. its just a thing not a thing I love or admire.

          large HDMI and no screen switch off are certainly a step beyond the r6 and even the r5 (which I just consider to be an overpirced r6!)

          thanks.

            No worries I have to say I do prefer the image also from the S5ii, that extra DR is quite obvious, there's something strange going on in the shadows on the R6, R5 - there is no lattitude there.
            Another plus is the audio takes line in and through my Sound Devides mix pre-d the audio is the best by far from a stills camera. Panasonic take the video side seriously and there are some great deals on the S5ii at the moment.
            The one thing I do miss form the R6 is the cheap but great Meike vari nd adapter, heard they are making one for the Panasonic L mount but not happened yet

              Morgan you shouldn’t get emotionally invested. All these cameras companies play games. Canon is so well known for it they’ve earned the “Canon Cripple hammer” but I have no doubt if the roles were reversed and Panasonic was the market share leader and a cinema line to protect, they be doing the same thing. Panasonic is currently giving us more for less to play catch up. I don’t care what brand I seek out the best value with the features I need.

                I have no emotional investment. But do you ever do jobs that need a ND xlr long run video camera ? - maybe a 400 2.8 or 100-400 ? did you ever drop your 24-105 and need to phone a friend and grab a spare for tonights job? Did you ever want a 70-200 for $400?

                If the answer is yes to any or all of those questions. Panasonic is not the answer to your needs.

                  We all have different needs so it's understandable one camera might be good enough for one person and not to the next. But I would say plugging an external monitor is a fundamental need, if you're recording to it you can't afford the connection to come lose or wear out. Having a full HDMI isn't a big ask especially for an expensive camera. Canon never says it but you can read between the lines. If you want a more professional connection or if you don't want the screen to black out you should buy our cinema line. Its always some gotcha they have in there. Before you couldn't get clean hdmi out or 30 limit. Both were not hardware limitations they were design in intentionally to segment their models out.

                    Indeed. Agreed. That was my post. Seeing value in the suggestion that hanging a full hdmi panny on the back of some canon lenses might be better than hanging a pico hdmi canon mirrorles on the back of some canon lenses

                    Because of the value of a monitor when working for a director I do wonder if full hdmi 'out the side' is enough. Thats why I suggest being able to buy/rent and hang an sdi camera off your lenses is important.

                    Having shot B on a feature with a full hdmi 'out the side' sony - I can vouch for thier full HDMI being non robust.

                    For solo shooting I feel monitors have become less essential (see the atomos thread?).. in DSLRs of 2020 or before with a 480 screen and no evf when shooting video a monitor was needed. A modern mirrorles, especially with AF can be used well solo with no monitor especially the green box MF on the canon. The evf is the only thing that actually makes me feel warm about my r6.

                      so, again, you suggest r6?mark 1 over mark 2?
                      mark2 seems intreresting, at least on specs. Mark 1 not that much..am i wrong? It is expensive though (the 2)

                        Im sure the mk2 is better - i just bought the mk1 a few years ago.

                        its just a camera with af and an evf to hang on the back of my canon lenses

                        i also have a c200 and work with alexas on “big” shoots

                          It Is a while that someone Is selling fs5mk2 for 1800. May be It can accept less since seems It Is not easy tÚ sell that quite old tool for that price.And that Is the point... even if It was a very good machine Is still worthy?newer camera have improved a lot in every aspect, so Is It reasonable tÚ buy It for the same price of lets say an FX30?

                                I'll throw a spanner in the works here. I've chosen one of the two cameras in the following video and very happy with the results. For me, image quality and dynamic range won out because in both cases the IQ and dynamic range differences were very noticeable in extreme conditions. Especially the dynamic range!
