    He should practice being in front of the camera at home, and its gonna be better, its quite visible that hes not really convinced into what hes saying or its just how he is but that will change over time, if he wants to be snarky he needs to be fast and convincing not stutter or look like hes in front of the class telling dates from memory, also dont hit a box with fingers so close to the mic, or just dont do it at all.

    The GH5 is still king.. it's full size HDMI port and 422 10 bit all intra 400mbps recording capability and of course IBIS still has not been surpassed by a mirrorless camera anywhere near it's price point.. the closet to it is the black magic cameras which you have to rig up to get anywhere close to the functionality. I've decided for sure this time. I'm getting a GH5 it is still the best all around.

    S1 is selling for $1400 usd new so is it worth over the $1600 S5 ?

  • FantabMedia


    3 måneder siden

    Depends what you want (and you have to pay for V-Log with S1). S1 is a better body, better IBIS, better EVF, better LCD, no recording limits in standard 10-bit modes and full-size HDMI. S5 has 4k60 10-bit (8-bit on the S1), RAW and better AF(coming to the S1). I'd take the S1 any day although I really miss that 4k60 10-bit.

  • TheFoxwiz

    The S1 body only is $2500 at Adorama. Not sure why you put $3500

  • gameshoes
    gameshoes3 måneder siden

    The price for the S1 shown at 1:00 is incorrect. The S1 is at $2500 USD. Perhaps they got mixed up with the S1R which is at $3500 USD.

    OLD NEWS Come on, 4 weeks after everyone has unboxed and revealed the S5 you make this video. Yes, we all know that it’s has a micro HDMI and does not have phase detection focussing, etc and so on. There has been 100 NOlocal videos telling all this. How about doing or showing us something we don’t know?

    "Suitable for people who are just getting in to photography". Camera is $1999...I would say you have to be a bit more that just getting in to photography to be spending that much on a camera in my opinion.

    Try reviewing the Nikon Z5 (full-frame) or Nikon Z50 (APS-C), Brandon. Both of them are relatively cheaper than the S5 and they're great options for people moving from DSLR to mirrorless. I'm thinking of buying one of the two but I'm not sure what to get.

    Mirrorless cameras are great, but what about something like a Canon 90D? Im coming from a 60D I mainly use for wildlife photography but would like to dabble in video. As I love my 60D I've been considering an EOS R as a dedicated video rig but the 90D would offer me backwards compatibility with a lot of my existing gear. A review of either / both of these would be interesting as you have mentioned the EOS R in several videos now. (Edited for spelling)
