Today, Canon announced the heavily rumoured C70, their first RF mount cinema camera which shares the same excellent sensor as the Canon C300 MKIII. So yes you do still get all the benefits of DGO (Dual gain output) and the camera can shoot 4K up to 120fps in S&F mode with Canons fantastic autofocus.
We talk to Mehdia from Canon UK and Ollie from Korro Films about Canon's Vision Event and the new Cinema Camera which will be announced. This will be an informal Q&A session with Mehdia and Ollie answering viewer questions directly.
A few weeks ago, we put out a video looking at what mode on the A7s III offers the best image quality. In that video, we mentioned that we were comparing the A7s III to other cameras, and here, we're comparing the highly anticipated A7s III, with the Canon R5. In the video above, we test out the dynamic range and exposure recovery of both cameras, the High ISO performance, as well as how sharp each camera is.
Back when the Sony FX9 was announced in 2019, Sony released a roadmap of features that would be coming to the FX9 in future firmware updates. Well, the first major update in the form of Firmware 2.0 for the FX9 is finally here, and its added a bunch of new features to the camera. In the video above, we go over the key highlights of this firmware update, as there are some nice little improvements, such as eye autofocus which is great to see.
Teradek's bolt 500, Bolt 1000 and Bolt 3000 have now been replaced with the Bolt 4K LT lineup, bringing a whole host of improved features to the Bolt range, for the same price point as the originals. We go over the important highlights from the announcement in detail in our latest episode of Up to Speed.
The GH5 has been by far the most popular Lumix camera so far. It was released over 3 years ago and still has many happy users to this day. But it far from the perfect camera, and with the Lumix S5 launch, we recon Panasonic have given GH5 users a very sensible upgrade path from the GH5 to their full frame lineup.
Speaking to customers before the release of the S5, an improvement in autofocus performance over the GH5, S1 and S1H was top of the list for many people when discussing hopeful improvements. Panasonic have been putting their efforts into improving their autofocus which is based on contrast only technology for many years now through firmware updates. Over time, lumix cameras have improved greatly. But many customers are still asking for improvements, as even though their autofocus has been much better recently, it still is behind Panasonics competition who have made the move to Hybrid based autofocus systems.
The S5 is Panasonic's new entry level option in their professional full frame mirrorless lineup. It offers exceptional image quality in a compact and flexible footprint.
