  • af100 successor with super35mm sensor. 13 stops Vlog L specs similar to GH5, but with better slow motion and improved codec h264 flavor.

    .M4/3 mount for shure just looking at the image. include high bitrates even a dual card raid like for improved 600mbits recording dream.

    Possible h265 on slower frames low bitrates on 4k 10bit 4:2:2. Maybe some Avcintra flavors if possible if special add on is buyed maybe. Same LSI as Gh5 but no image stabilization. So more power for processing image, and also better heat disipation with improved ergonomics.

    NO FGPA HEAVEN very light weight.

    REAL WORLD SPECS. same as gh5. Only all buttons are available. Pro panasonic menu system (veru tricky) Nd filter inluded no image stabilisation m4/3 sensor same flavors of codec better body. Af100 succsor. Shitty plastic high margin and profits.

    Price between 6000 to 7000 bucks.


  • Seagate/DJI Fly Drive


    • The 2 TB of space stores over 60 hours of DJI drone footage at 4K (approx. 250 flights). Rather than keeping a stack of individual microSD cards, Seagate says their drive will help keep drone pilots more organized.
    • The built-in microSD slot makes it easier to quickly backup storage, since computer makers (especially Apple) have been dropping the number of ports included with new models. When plugged into a computer, the microSD card will read as a second external drive that you can then choose to either drag onto your computer or the Fly Drive.
    • The drive is rated UHS-II and works with the latest generation of computers with either USB 3.1 or Thunderbolt 3.
    • The cable tucks into the back of the case, keeping it stored nicely and paired with the Fly Drive.
    • The Fly Drive is protected by a bumper, which makes it drop resistant in the field.
    • The Fly Drive will ship with a 2-month membership to Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

  • Here is the brochure for the AG-UMR20 recorder and AG-UCK20 camera:

    The camera is a bit larger than a typical action camera, but has a 20x optical zoom lens. You need the recorder to be able control the camera or get any video out of it. Records H.264 but maxes out at 50 Mbps for 2160p30.

    Little bit of an unusual setup, I guess it's intended for live events, concerts and such.

  • @ endotoxic

    Do you have any inside information or is this just speculation on your part?

    All images of the new Panasonic camera show it with full-frame Canon EOS-mount lenses, so I would be surprised if it has a m/43 sensor given that it features an EF mount. Hopefully it will have the same S35 sensor as the Varicam cameras, most likely with fewer in-camera recording options.

    We shall see.

  • @roly

    One thing we know for sure - it won't be cheap.

    For now it is mockup, most probably made to check feedback.

  • AG-UMR20 recorder and AG-UCK20 camera : $4400

  • @Vitaliy_Kiselev

    Absolutely cheap, no. Relatively cheap… maybe? If it keeps the Varicam sensor and is appreciably under 10K, it'd be a bargain. Relatively speaking.

  • @roly

    You mean Sony sensor under Varicam brand?

  • @ Vitaliy_Kiselev

    If you say so… I have to say I like what I have seen from it, no matter who the manufacturer

  • @roly

    Panasonic does not make sensors now. This guys destroyed almost all related to making original LSIs and sensors.

  • Wooden Camera UFF-1 Universal Follow Focus

  • Davinci Resolve 14

    Price dropped $999 to a $299, no dongles.

    DJI Introduces New High-Performance Accessories To Help Professional Customers Get The Most From DJI Products

    DJI, the world’s leader in creative camera technology, has introduced new high-performance hardware and a premium customer support program to help professional customers get the most out of their aerial and handheld imaging equipment. The new Cendence remote controller, DJI Tracktenna high-gain antenna and CrystalSky monitor provide personalised controls and better performance for the most demanding uses, while DJI Circle delivers a new premium tier of support for DJI products and the people who rely on them to do their jobs.

    “From rescue crews to software developers, from filmmakers to contractors, DJI’s professional customers demand the highest performance from our aerial platforms and handheld stabilisers,” said Paul Pan, DJI Senior Product Manager. “We are committed to giving them the tools they need to do their jobs right, so they can accomplish their goals with more power, precision and control than ever before.”

    Customisable Remote Control

    The new Cendence remote controller is DJI’s first multi-platform controller for professionals who need versatility, efficiency and personalisation at their fingertips. Its intuitive ergonomic design fits perfectly in your hands, allowing easy access to programmable function buttons and dials.

    Users can program and store customized button configurations for different flight and shooting options, and can use two dials to adjust the pitch and yaw of the gimbal at the same time. With Cendence, pilots have instant access to functions like ISO, sharpness, shutter speed, focus and more, without navigating the touch menu settings on their mobile device. Cendence features built-in SDI and HDMI video transmission ports for live HD broadcast and streaming applications, and can be easily adapted to use DJI’s Lightbridge or WiFi video transmission technology.

    The controller mounts smartphones, tablets and DJI’s high-brightness CrystalSky monitors, and also features a smaller secondary screen to display critical telemetry data. Long battery life of up to 4 hours and the ability to easily exchange batteries make power management easier and longer flights possible. Cendence is compatible with DJI’s Matrice 200 and Inspire 2 drones. Cendence will be available later this year, priced at £949 (€1,149).

    Improved Flight and Data Communication

    DJI Tracktenna is a high-gain antenna that ushers in a new era of remote wireless communication by improving signal reliability over long distances and resisting interference. Its built-in sensors and two-axis gimbal automatically point the antenna to the aircraft at all times, bolstering the connection even while the operator is in motion or on a vehicle.

    When installed on the new Cendence controller in optimal conditions, DJI Tracktenna can boost signal transmission to over 6.2 miles (10 km), giving professionals increased responsiveness and confidence when performing complex flights like search and rescue missions, power line inspections, pipeline inspections, live HD broadcasting, filmmaking and more. Pilots should always understand and follow any applicable laws and regulations regarding flight distance.

    DJI Tracktenna supports transmission speeds of up to 10 Mbps within 1.24 miles (2 km) for data-intensive applications. It supports both 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequency bands, giving it greater signal stability. Pricing and availability for DJI Tracktenna will be announced at a later date.

    Brighter Dedicated Monitors

    The CrystalSky family of dedicated monitors offers a brighter and more reliable display screen for pilots, photographers and filmmakers who need more robust visual information than is available on smartphones and tablets. The CrystalSky series features displays up to 2000 cd/m2, which is four times brighter than a typical smartphone or tablet, allowing clear screen visibility even in full daylight.

    CrystalSky monitors are available in 5.5-inch and 7.85-inch sizes. They attach directly to the new Cendence controller, and use a new dedicated mounting bracket to attach to other DJI controllers. They are designed to operate in temperature ranges from -20 to 40 degrees celsius, and can operate for up to 6 hours in ideal conditions using a secondary external battery.

    CrystalSky runs optimized versions of the DJI GO, DJI GO 4 and DJI Pilot apps, and includes two microSD card slots for rapid storage and playback of encoded 4K video. CrystalSky will be available soon in three configurations: a 5.5-inch, 1000 cd/m2 version for £449 (€549); a 7.85-inch, 1000 cd/m2 version for £669 (€799); and a 7.85-inch, 2000 cd/m2 version for £949 (€1,149).

    DJI at NAB 2017

    Cendence, DJI Tracktenna and CrystalSky are on display at the DJI booth at the NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nevada from April 24-27, alongside the new Ronin 2 professional stabilizer and the entire DJI product line of creative camera technology. Conference attendees should visit DJI booth #C2807 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
