In 19 hours there will be a live stream from Blackmagic regarding a new camera and DaVinci Resolve. We’re very much looking forward to this announcement and are unsure if this will be a new 4K pocket cinema camera or an improvement on their Ursa Mini line.
Many are wondering if the Panasonic GH5 with its 10-bit color is good enough to forego a RAW camera. The jury is still out, but here is one of the first comparisons we have seen:
Two more reviews of the Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K, which after our disappointment with Sony’s new FS7 II again becomes relevant to us. It’s not a perfect camera and you might be playing a bit of a lottery in ordering one, but for the price it’s truly amazing.
We have been waiting for more comparisons between the Panasonic GX85 and the Sony A6300. They are different enough cameras that their feature set will likely draw you to one over the other, but it’s still good to see what each is capable of.
This video was shot on the Sony FS5:
You can read Philip’s review here and the review video is posted below. He speaks positively about this camera as many of the other reviewers have:
…this is easily the best camera they have made. It is very well priced and produces a wonderful image. It is far from perfect and I go into the pros and cons in the video. Most of the cons are operational rather than image…mostly!
This is an interesting comparison as these two cameras are similar in price even though they differ significantly in form factor. If you’re going to go for the Blackmagic then it makes more sense to get the 4.6K version unless budget prevents you.
