It's a Super-35-sized sensor.
What raw are you talking about? I don't see internal raw promised anywhere, and external raw shouldn't be compressed.
That must meet a reasonably stringent performance standard.
Wow, that's just juvenile.
First of all, the C200 has internal raw recording, which the Panasonic doesn't. And if it's judiciously compressed to make it practical, then there's every reason to use it. If you don't care about it, fine. But 400 Mbps is nothing to crow about when shooting 4K. And recording raw data saves you worries about white balance during acquisition.
Downsampling from 5.7K sounds great... until you decimate the color information with a 4:2:2 codec. The higher resolution overcomes much of the color-resolution deficit that's inherent in a single Bayer chip... but then half that color resolution is thrown away. OOPS.
It remains to be seen what Canon's better codec will offer. It's pretty pathetic to release any camera without at least ProRes 4:4:4 at this point, but Canon has long shown a peculiar ignorance of the need for high-quality codecs.
Then again, so has Panasonic. You're talking about the company that never did release a DV50 or DV100 codec for Windows, meaning 95 percent of computer users couldn't access footage from their best cameras... for years.
Been online since 1995, but never heard of this. So... a bit overhyped.
It's about time that the Tagged Image File Format got its own festival.
You're never too old!
