The LUMIX G90 is a true hybrid camera, with equal importance given to its extensive video capability.

It can record unlimited 4K video (3840x2140) at 30p/25p (50Hz Area)/30p (60Hz) or 24p in addition to Full HD (1920x1080) at 60p/50p (50Hz Area), 60p (60Hz Area) with full-time AF. High Speed Video can also be utilised to record slow-motion video in Full HD at 120fps (1/4x), 90fps (1/3x) and 60fps (1/2x).

Real-time image output to an external monitor in 4:2:2 / 8-bit*1 via an optional micro HDMI cable is available, while V-Log L is pre-installed for wider dynamic range for colour rendering in post-production. Additionally, a 3.5mm microphone jack for high-quality audio recording is included, as well as a headphone socket.

The G90 features LUMIX’s well-known 4K Photo modes. Giving users the ability to extract fleeting moments at 30fps from a 4K video, it’s now even easier thanks to a new Auto Marking function which automatically detects frames with changes to the image. Sequence Composition has also been added for creating “stromotion” images by combining multiple images into one shot for a fun effect.

Panasonic GH6, First rumors http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/19798/panasonic-gh6-first-rumors Mon, 28 May 2018 15:14:16 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19798@/talks/discussions Rumors I heard so far from various sources:

  • Panasonic wants to add 8K support, most probably at 24p only
  • m43 sensor can be first present only at GH6 presentation time and will be exclusive for 1-2 years
  • 8K support can be interpolated (from around 6.5-7K), but can be true 8K, depends on sensor version Sony chooses
  • Next focus will be improving high frame rates
  • AF will be kept at same level, slightly faster, just with more options
  • Will use this EVF - https://www.personal-view.com/talks/discussion/19797/meet-first-gh6-part-1600x1200-resolution-oled-evf#Item_1
  • GH6 can be first camera with AI and cloud based features with monthly cost
  • Other features can be possible to be enabled permanently, but paid, similar to V-LOG license
  • Panasonic also wants to account for big currency fluctuations
  • So, price will rise compared to GH5, but it can be GH6V (value edition) with 8K and other features disabled that you can buy later
  • GH lineup, after one year of introduction, will be 3 cameras - GH6V, GH6 and GH6X (top one, similar to mix of G9 and GH5S)
  • First announcement round will be Photokina 2018 and spring Photokina 2019 or CP++ will be release time

Zeiss ZX1 - Another FF camera, this time with Android inside http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/20542/zeiss-zx1-another-ff-camera-this-time-with-android-inside Thu, 27 Sep 2018 12:48:00 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 20542@/talks/discussions

First full-frame camera from ZEISS with first-class image quality and the familiar, intuitive image editing and connectivity of a smartphone.

image

OBERKOCHEN/Germany, 2018-09-27.

ZEISS ZX1 -- That is the name of the newly developed mirrorless full-frame camera from ZEISS that was presented today in Cologne, Germany. Thanks to the ZEISS lens and a sensor developed in-house at ZEISS, the camera delivers first-class image quality combined with an operational concept and user experience that make the photographer's jobs-to-be-done as intuitive as on a smartphone.

The ZEISS camera concept is just the first step to opening up a new world of possibilities for ambitious photographers -- from taking the shot to editing the image and sharing it on the web.

SHOOT. EDIT. SHARE. -- Harmonized hardware, software and optics for a seamless creative process

SHOOT: the ZEISS ZX1 features a newly designed, integrated ZEISS Distagon 35 mm f/2 T* lens with autofocus that has been perfectly matched to the 37.4 megapixel full-frame sensor developed in-house at ZEISS. The interplay between the lens and sensor ensures first-class picture quality with that typical ZEISS look.

EDIT: The ZEISS ZX1 enables photographers to professionally process RAW images directly on the camera thanks to fully integrated Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC. Moreover, the ZEISS ZX1's unique user interface supports the user's particular workflow without any interruption -- providing direct access to the most frequently used functions via a 4.3" multi-touch display.

SHARE: when the networked full-frame camera is connected, the user can upload selected images directly to the internet -- without the intermediate transfer to memory cards or other external devices.

512 GB of internal memory provide sufficient space for approximately 6,800 RAW files (DNG) or over 50,000 JPGs -- more than enough to handle photos, even during a longer trip, and giving the photographer the chance to let their creativity flow. Versatile connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB-C ensure that various peripherals can be connected. Over-the-air software updates keep the camera up to date without requiring a computer connection.

Designed with a passion for detail and a focus on the essentials

The design of the ZEISS ZX1 is characterized by its iconic shape with carefully crafted details. The overall form and reduction to just those elements that are absolutely necessary lay the foundation for an ergonomic camera and ensure easy handling. The symbiosis of hardware and software is exemplified by the newly defined user interface that utilizes the 4.3" multi-touch display. The slightly bent screen separates the live view from the control elements, making camera operation comfortable and straightforward.

"We know that we exploring new ways and initially addressing a special target group with the ZEISS ZX1. With our concept we are focusing on ambitious, professional creatives who want to produce their photographic experiences quickly and efficiently, and inspire as many people on the Internet as possible. This requires a streamlined workflow in addition to high-end features. This is exactly what the concept of the ZEISS ZX1 offers," explains Jörg Schmitz, Head of the Consumer Products business group at ZEISS.

ZEISS ZX1 available from early 2019

The ZEISS ZX1 will be available at selected dealers in early 2019. ZEISS will announce the recommended retail price at the start of the official market launch. Starting now, anyone interested in receiving information on exact availability can register at www.zeiss.com/zx1.

I would kinda of assume that the fhd ETC mode on the 20mp sensor ( gx9, g9, gh5 & gh5s ) would be physically smaller than on the 16mp sensor. And the gh5(s) has a uhd etc mode.

Panasonic moved all force to Full Frame bodies, 8K HDR will be announced in March http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/20355/panasonic-moved-all-force-to-full-frame-bodies-8k-hdr-will-be-announced-in-march Fri, 31 Aug 2018 08:06:16 -0600 zsound 20355@/talks/discussions

10 years later Panasonic will announce a new Full Frame system camera on September 25!

Word on the street is that Panasonic will show a prototype and the final product will be on market during the first half of 2019.

One of the sources testing the camera said this is “as exciting as the Nikon Z7 announcement“. One went even further and said it’s “more exciting“. But of course, they might got carried away with their emotions so let’s keep our feet on ground. A third source said “video performance is superb“.

  • 20 24-105mm f/4.0 lenses

Monthly production of EOS R is 20 thousand, Nikon Z6 and Z7 is also 20 thousand each.

May be just the very start of production, this is why.

GH2 bit rate problems http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/21555/gh2-bit-rate-problems Sat, 16 Feb 2019 03:38:45 -0700 LunaNa 21555@/talks/discussions Good day. Help is needed. Before the firmware, the camera wrote a video with a bitrate of about 22,000. Is always. After flashing the camera all the time to issue a different bit rate. If I rent in the studio sometimes gives 9 thousand. If the light is low about 15-20 thousand. Sometimes, right after the firmware, it gives out 39 or so. But it happens on a pair of frames. Then the bitrate falls again. I tried to flash again on the official firmware,but the bitrate still jumps.

Interview

Samples and videos


4K crop calculations:

Stills horizontal resolution - 4608
Cinema 4K horizontal resolution - 4096
4K horizontal resolution - 3840

This makes crop:

  • Cinema 4K - 1,125x
  • 4K - 1,2x

of course, it is additional crop (to 2x typical for m43), so you must multiple two if you need to know relative FF crop.

No cries of 'help me', no emoticons, but please, help me with 720/60fps problems on GH2! http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/21430/no-cries-of-help-me-no-emoticons-but-please-help-me-with-72060fps-problems-on-gh2 Tue, 29 Jan 2019 14:45:38 -0700 Jess 21430@/talks/discussions Heya guys, I would massively appreciate your help. I'm pretty new in the world of videography, and thus my grasp of the deeply technical is pretty shaky, so please go easy on me.

In essence, the nature of the problem is that I always get the dreaded 'motion recording was cancelled due to the write speed' message whenever I try to record in manual/720. There seems to be no such problems in cinema24, manual/motion jpeg or manual/1080. I'm trying to use 720/60fps to reap the benefits of slow-mo in the edit. The error message is a particular PITA because it requires a battery out reboot every time it occurs, which is less-than-ideal when the whole kit and kaboodle is mounted on a gimbal.

Here's the kicker though: I'm working with a Sandisk Xtreme Pro 32g, with a 10 write speed and 3UHS - which should be more than man enough for the job. I've also changed the firmware to the Sanity hack (because I heard it was pretty reliable) in case it was a firmware issue. But the issue has occurred both on original GH2 firmware and the hack.

The depth of my ignorance on camera related tech makes the kola borehole look pretty shallow, so go on, let this damsel in distress know, where am I going wrong!?
