Panasonic's much-leaked new camera, the GH5S, is now in the public domain. It sacrifices pixel count for sensitivity - for very good reasons. We've seen it and the pictures are impressive.
Still cameras that could also shoot video started the "cinematic video" revolution ten years ago. Things have moved on since then and now it's easily possible to buy a very good 4K dedicated video camera for the same sort of money that a DSLR with extensive rigging and a sound system would have cost.
So you would have thought that the DSLR/Mirrorless type of camera would have little interest for video makers these days.
While this is mostly true, there are some impressive exceptions. Sony's A7S series of cameras shoot 4K full frame video in lighting conditions that would baffle far more expensive, "more professional" cameras. And Panasonic's "GHx" range is hard to beat for picture quality at the price.
This time last year, the GH5 was revealed. It was the first mirrorless camera to offer 4K 50p/60p recording: an astonishingly capable video camera in the shape of a mirrorless still camera. And it will continue to be sold, at a lower cost than the GH5S.
