We haven’t mentioned the Yi action cameras for a while but we really like them as they are close enough to a GoPro for many purposes at a much cheaper price.
The video author does make a good point, we’ve never had anamorphic lenses in combination with a camera this good as this total price point. If you are after the anamorphic look then you could grab just one of these lenses along with the GH5.
There are few contexts where we find very wide angle focal lengths fitting for video, but certainly the New Jersey Festival of Ballooning should be considered one of them. The versatility of having the ability to change the lens is a true advantage that shows here, especially in such a small package.
We don’t hate the Nikon D7500 as much as everyone else (although the lack of compatibility with some older Nikon lenses, lack of battery grip, and single card slot aren’t preferable). It’s a nice, small camera with amazing autofocus. Video though is the same old Nikon story: No one buys Nikon for 4K video. The D7500 of course shares the same horrendous video crop factor of it’s big brother the Nikon D500.
Because the Sony A9 lacks some of the more video oriented features of its peer models we don’t recommended it for video. If you have this camera for photography purposes you still can pull some decent video footage out of it.
This is filed in the rumor category so take it with a grain of salt.
We do know that the Nikon D850 DSLR will shoot 8K time-lapses. Nikon has released a video on this camera.
Some of the key rumored specs are:
- 46MP sensor
- Full frame 4K video WITHOUT cropping
- NOT a hybrid EVF/OVF as some were hoping
Time will tell.
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.
