We have finalized the analysis on the Sony a7s and the Panasonic FZ1000. We have placed the Sony in 4th place and the Pana in 5th place in our HSC Camera Guide. Even though the a7s is only 720p it has less aliasing than the FZ1000 at 120fps and the resolution seems very close. The Sony full frame also has noise characteristics that are much better than the 1″ sensor on the FZ1000.
All in all the Panasonic GH4 in 3rd place is still a better quality slow motion camera with conformed slow motion in camera to 24p and while a bit soft at 1080p it delivers about 14% better resolution than the a7s.→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
New reports from early adopters of the FZ1000 claim that the super slow motion mode in the camera is limited to 120fps at 1080p and the modes that offered higher frame rates are gone from final shipping units.
After receiving quite a few questions on camera gear and rumors we have picked a few that might be of interest to the general readership.

Right on the rumor heels of the LX8 we get a new camera from Panasonic. The FZ1000 looks like a GH4 only larger and with a huge lens (Non Interchangeable). The specs on the camera surprised us and it follows our slow motion estimation for improvement.
Out of left field in the 1″ inch compact camera category the replacement of the RX100 II, the new Sony DSC RX100 III has impressive video specs for such a small pocketable camera.
For starters it shoots regular 1080p at 60p at 50 Mbps in XAVC S or MP4 and or AVHD 2.0 formats. Higher quality than many pro SLRs. Further along the spec list it allows for a 120fps 720 HD mode at also 50 Mbps in the same format selection.→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
