This is a good example of the colors that you can get out of the Panasonic GH5. Despite not having the dynamic range of some of its peers it’s clearly a capable camera.
Keep in mind that these tests don’t show what the Ursa Mini is really capable of. Nonetheless the results are interesting.
These videographers attached an 8-16mm sigma lens to their Ursa Mini 4.6K and got some interesting results. The aerial footage looks beautiful. It would be interesting to see a comparison against the Panasonic GH5.
It’s half way into 2017 and Canon not only doesn’t have 4K on its new camera, but it’s 1080P codec is somehow worse than the 6D Mark I (video autofocus is better of course in the Mark II).
We don’t hate Canon but they’ve been protecting their pro-video-segment at the expense of all their consumer gear. It’s been a long time that Canon’s given us anything to be excited about at a consumer affordable price.
This video shows the SLR Magic 25mm F1.4, 35mm F1.2, 50mm F1.1, 75mm F1.4 in action. Unfortunately it’s not labeled for which lens is used for which segment. Nonetheless it shows the general look you can get from these excellent budget lenses. We find the 50mm to be the weakest link. The camera is the Sony A7R II.
We are still not sure how to feel about this video camera as we are unhappy with 8-bit in 2017, but otherwise it appears to be a great camera.
