By now it is no secret that the Canon EOS 7D Mark II is mostly geared to photographers and video is considered a feature but not primary. It gains 60p at 1080 Full HD and retains 720p 60 but no further improvements for slow motion video.
It is still a good spec sheet especially for photographers and it improves on ISO, Sensor, AF, Timelapse, GPS Geo-tagging, SD Card Plus CF Slot and extra 10fps responsiveness.→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
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.
Out of all the tests possible with these cameras it seems slow motion is the last on the list. However we have found some examples from both the Sony a7s in 720p 120fps mode and the Panasonic FZ1000 in 100fps full HD 1080.
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.
