After weeks of grumbling about the lack of interest in HDR PQ, a forum member over at DPReview took pity on me and shared a brief clip shot with his EOS R5 – and it really looks great! Too bad Sony doesn’t have such a feature on the a7s III!
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: shouldn’t 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 recovery times after shooting for twenty minutes, a… Read More

And every other manufacturer on planet earth has already signed on, including Sony, whose a7s III will undoubtedly record ProRes RAW through an Atomos. So it’s entirely possible, especially considering all the feedback Canon’s received, that they’ve got a fall… Read More
There’s been a lot of nonsense written about 8K video ever since the announcement of the Canon EOS R5. These videos are essential viewing for those wanting to understand the relationship between the number of pixels and sharpness and a whole bunch of other stuff. Not a single minute is wasted in this fascinating hour-long… Read More
