Not bad, but a simple set of furniture movers (~20) would do much better than banana peels and dryer sheets.
I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel to GHD in that fashion. Even if they ended it perfectly, it'd be interesting to see Rita repeating the 3rd of February, or maybe even July 4th a few years into their relationship.
Of course there will be. I've already read some comments here where people are "upset" that the photos will be subpar.
I however remember a time when 11.1 MP was only available for medium format.
I find it interesting too, how some reviewers do not like that features and functions carry over from video to photo, like waveform, but others appreciate it.
Well, that's the point. It wasn't built for stills, it was built for video. A still photographer doesn't need CFExpress.
Also, while I don't understand the reference to subsampling a 1080p signal from 4K, I would agree that 4k is more becoming the norm, even if streaming services haven't gone 4k only. But that also proves why not going 6-12k was a good move, and why making the 4k from the A7 top notch was necessary.
But the camera addresses all three of those points.
1.) you can record to an Atomos or other external recorder
2.) 4.6k and 5k RAW would allow, this, but most versions from competitors take the 4.6k/5k/6k and downsample to make better 4k.
3.) The 16bit out of the HDMI will handle this. It's up to Atomos or others to record it, or Apple to make a 16bit version of Apple Pro Res.
The S1H had limitations as well, just different limitations. As you said it has the weakest autofocus, but it also has pretty bad rolling shutter, ISO values don't come close to the A7SIII, and doesn't do 4k120.
The S1H sounds like a winner for you, but for others need different features.
I would agree if we got the same flavor of HD and 4k that the A7SII had, but with some gimmicky features like a rotating screen and bigger buttons.
But what they did was update the parts that users gripped about for those 5 years. The color now matches the cinema cams instead of the broadcast ones, the menu, recording format, the way it handles going from stills to video, button layout, etc.
As others have said the AF update is immensely improved.
For some it's all about resolution and that's fine, but for a vast majority of shooters there's a lot more to consider.
Oh, and Sony's new contract with the AP might have had something to do with not throwing everything and the kitchen sink into it.
