Panasonic G9 vs GH5 for Video Compared!

Panasonic G9 vs GH5

Panasonic seems to be doing a lot of things right lately with their fantastic GH5 with 10 bit recording and 4k 60p for the first time in a mirrorless camera and of course the 180fps Full HD slow motion to boot.  The just-announced Lumix G9 is a monster of a camera in its own right but Panasonic is right to segment it as a Stills first and video second machine.

The GH5 is the best video-centric portable camera in recent memory and the aim with the G9 is to go after the Sony a9 which is arguably the best stills camera ever conceived performance wise.  The G9 is capable of shooting 60 RAW images in a single burst per second and while the buffer is only 50 RAWs worth; it becomes easily renewed thanks to dual card slots.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Leica SL Typ 601 120fps 1080p Will Cost You!

LeicaSL34

Leica introduced the Leica SL Typ 601 mirrorless ILC “Interchangeable Lens Camera” With three lenses for the new system:  the Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-90mm F2.8-4 ASPH, Apo-Vario Elmarit-SL 90-280mm F2.8-4 and Summilux-SL 50mm F1.4 ASPH.

The Leica SL Camera itself has a 24MP Full Frame sensor based on the Leica Q camera sensor with modifications. Some speculate that the sensor is a Panasonic made part.  The camera can take 11fps continuous shooting and 4k video at 24p  and UHD at 30p. But what cought our eye was that it offers true 1080p 120fps mode and a 720p 120fps mode.  Why include the latter is anybodys guess but if it is a sensor crop at 720p it allows for slow motion Telephoto.  The 1080p 120fps mode uses the entire sensor area and down-samples to create the frame rate.  We did notice some moderate aliasing in the samples that have been released but nothing too pronounced.  The slow motion quality is actually extremely good and it is quite possibly on par with the best 120fps compact cameras out there today.[...] → Continue Reading Full Post ←
