Nearly impossible to tell the difference between 8K and oversampled 4K HQ. Save some hard drive space and shoot 4K HQ 170Mbps rather than 8K 680Mbps. Fun facts: A double blind study by Warner Brothers showed most consumers can’t distinguish between 4K and 8K and most Hollywood movies are finished in 2K.
Looks like Armando Ferriera is collaborating with director Lukas Colombo and Kondor Blue on another epic real world production test, this time with the a7s III!
Now that it’s certain that I’ll be sticking with Sony, time to pick up the glass I’ve been holding off purchasing. The next one will be either the Samyang 85mm f/1.4 or the new Sigma FE 85mm f/1.4 to replace my FE 85mm f/1.8. I hope to share some clips shot with the 20mm sometime… Read More
Some alarmists are saying Sony must immediately respond to Canon’s salvo by launching their own 8K mirrorless, but shouldn’t the real question be: should Canon develop an a7s III-like camera with insane ISO 16000 see-in-the-dark ability, 4K 120p no line-skipping, 13 stops of dynamic range, no two-hour cool-off times after shooting for twenty minutes, a… Read More

I was considering another S1H for obvious reasons, but I was intrigued by the superior autofocus in video mode from Canon and Sony.… Read More
In an earlier post, we copy and pasted a statement by DPR technical editor Richard Butler in which he denies that Canon had designed the R5 and R6 to be professional video tools and explicitly denying that Canon was marketing them as such. But looking at the article again today, we were startled to discover… Read More
There’s a widespread belief that Canon’s suddenly leapfrogged Sony by a couple of generations just because they offer what they’re calling 8K video in their R5; that squeezing more and smaller pixels onto the surface of the sensor magically makes it better: and some think Sony has to respond with their own 8K mirrorless camera.… Read More
DPReview just published a mind-blowing article in which technical editor Richard Butler defends Canon’s demonstrably deceptive marketing tactics, asserting that both the R5 and R6 perform as intended and that Canon never claimed the R5 was for professional use: It should be noted that Canon did not design either the EOS R5 or R6 to… Read More
