Is the ISO test using some sort of on-camera 'denoise'? Or was this done in post?
And to make matters more complex, The GH4 does send an external signal of 10 bit, which should together with 4:2:2 result in a nice gradient roll off, but is still looking 'video-ish' because the camera has only 10 bit stops of dynamic range.
I bet a 15 stops sensor with a 4:2:0 8 bit codec would look much better.
Yeah yeah yeah we got your endorsed message by now.
- Variable Aperture lens
- No flat profile such as SLOG
- No ND filter
- No LUT preview in monitor
- 12 stops is not that exiting
- Although I'm heavily invested in 4/3, S35 or full frame is the way to go for cinema.
- Probably more once detailed specs are known
Probably very suitable for shooting documentaries.
I'll go for the URSA Mini thank you.
Unlike Wes Anderson pulling me in, the voice-over pulled me out.
If $5K is the total film budget, a GH4 or even a GH2/GH3 should suffice to save $4K on other hardware.
