Well, this is one way to play catch up: put all the videos I've done on the Panasonic GH5 and related lenses over the last couple of months in one post. Enjoy -- and if you like what you've seen here, please remember to give a thumbs up, subscribe to our YouTube channel and consider using our affiliate links or even directly supporting us with a contribution via PayPal in the "MORE" section below each video on YouTube. Thanks!
Just a quick note to apologize for leaving so much off the blog. This is all a very part-time thing I'd like to make almost-full time (we start shooting a documentary short tomorrow), Still sorting it out. Will try to get a pile of YouTube videos reposted here over the next couple of day, but you can always go straight to our YouTube channel. Thanks for your patience!
Yes, the a9 is sick-fast, arguably sickest-fastest general purpose camera out there. But I actually lost sleep after shooting with it for a full day, wondering “why this camera, why now, and for whom?”
We are in NYC at the Sony press event announcing the $4,500 a9, and one thing is staggeringly clear. Sony may demur in public, but everything about this camera --along with the simultaneously announced $2,500 FE 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 G-Master OSS lens screams "DSLR technology is so last-century, especially for sports photography." Here's why.
The a99II [B&H|Amazon] is sick-fast with a unique pellicle mirror arrangement enabling hybrid phase detect autofocus. Along with a pile of other specifications including the 42 megapixel sensor from the a7r II, this a-mount camera is aimed at giving existing a-mount users a reason to keep investing -- and maybe even toppling the Canon 5D franchise. But it's never that simple, is it?
I've been hands-on with a press sample of the GH5 (thanks Panasonic!); I've pre-ordered it; but there's SO MUCH more I still don't know. If you want to learn more, too, check out the live stream B&H is putting out on Wednesday!
