  • Interesting. I haven't seen mention of it anywhere else. Can you share your source?

  • @QuickHitRecord

    If you look at rumors sites, they mention it, just without names.

    Camera will come with new LSI, similar to

  • Source?

    Source?

    Names? Safe houses? Passwords? :-)

  • Good. GH5 and GH5S are both over priced.

  • 15 stops and raw for 2k? No, not in 2018.

  • Very interesting... although, the 60fps at only 4:2:0 would be a killer for me. I'll probably still wait to see some footage before buying a GH5s though...

  • This is C200 territory...

  • 4K 24/30fps recording at 422 mode, 200Mbit and 400Mbit

    If this is done without a crop, and at the same price as a GH5S, then this will indeed be impressively unlike Canon!

    Not a deal breaker though, as no mirrorless can do that currently internally.

    They're not, nothing else packs this much value into prices as low as theirs. But of course, I would also welcome lower prices!

    New mount

    Be weird to ditch EF-M, can't it support FF? If so I'm rather surprised indeed they designed it without looking to the future.

  • So full frame C200 in photo camera body. Nice!

  • Funny thing this...

    "Possible compressed raw recording option ($199)"

    Canon cameras have LONG had the ability to generate compressed raw stills... Canon RAW Lite might just be a variant of this type of compression on an i-frame basis in a nice container file... That's how I would propose to have done it... Could be a nice magic lantern trick to re-route the frame buffer into the Canon Compressed Raw registers, then route that data to dump to memory cards... I'd gladly pay $2500 for a Canon Mirrorless with these kind of capabilities though (if you're reading this Canon)
