Bwahahaha!! This was good Marc! In agreement with you there Michael. It's taken me a long time to come to grips that most people are watching what little shit I've created on their damn phone anyway!!!
I love my GH5 but 12 stops of dynamic range is still only 12 stops of dynamic range. The big dogs have around 14 or 15 stops which is a huge difference in possible image quality. I always think in terms of aperture or shutter clicks(1/3 stops) and nine clicks is a LOT! Going from my 5d’III to Sony a7rIII was bindblowing! I do see your point but don’t know that raw is that turning point.
I have found it best to turn off all stabilization when working with gimbals but others may be different opinion on the matter.
I REALLY hope this comes to premiere but I have my doubts. This makes the EVA1 such an amazing camera IMO! 10bit 4:2:2 4K LONG GOP for interviews taking up next to no space and 5.7K ProRes RAW for Broll, with Panny color, taking up the same space as ProRes 422! I get to seriously up my picture without taking a storage hit or a performance hit in post!?!?!?! THis is a HUGE deal!
I completely agree with the lack of an actual and usable "review" plus they didn't even answer the title of the post (unless I missed it). Is it a 2k equivalent or not?
No metered output no cri.....seems lazy and doesn't really help someone know whether it will fit in their arsenal given the work they do.
As far as being ripped off....That seems a bit rich. Please point me to another light that puts out as much light as this in a form factor this small, this light, and capable of being powered by batteries. They come with a longer xlr power cable now so you can move the ballest further away if need be for the fan. I haven't heard it in on any of my recordings. Plus as a photographer, being able to take advantage of the bowens mount is SOOO convient.
How many of those lovely tungsten lights can you plug into a 120 outlet before you trip a breaker? Also if you do manage to get them up and running, how's your talent doing in that three-piece suit sitting 6ft away from them :) Horses for courses, and times are a changing.
I for one LOVE this light but that's just little ol' me.
You still can't beat 10bit 4:2:2 4K 60p with VLog and Panny colors. GH5(s) still best bang for the buck when it comes to video IMO. I much prefer it over even the c200 8bit 4K 60p. Autofocus will probably be top notch but I'm traiding 10bit 4k 60p for autofocus.
