I learned these things from the announcement:
- Full frame sensor
- 4K 60p (not new)
- better autofocus? (great, if you use it)
No info about bitrate or bitdepth or anything like that. That's what I want to know. No mention of a headphone jack, full-size HDMI, codec, dual recording capabilities, 10-bit or RAW output.
I have a weird feeling that this S1 camera is meant to be more of a Canon R competitor rather than the next step in video capabilities for Panasonic. I wouldn't be surprised if the only thing it even compared to the GH5 on was a larger sensor and better autofocus. I think we're going to see low bitrate 8-bit codec, no headphone jack, no dual-card recording, and a mini-HDMI out.
Well, NFS has been pretty boring and average lately. Are you surprised?
I've seen some great examples of images and video from this lens. I'm pretty sure the guys at NFS just took some really terrible images. If you ask me, it's obvious they didn't put any real effort into them.
I just found examples on Flickr and they look awesome.
I can't wait to see this film! Bo is a fantastic writer and stage performer. I'm interested to see how well he was able to pull off directing.
The top of your article says f/1.4, not f/1.7.
