Re: SONY's answer to the GH5?

Looks like it's only the A9, and no A9R or A9S.

No 10bit HDMI, and people shooting 4K 30p still have a dreaded crop factor problem.

Sony does not have an answer to the GH5's 10bit and 4K 60p offerings.

Re: SONY's answer to the GH5?

Wow.....was I seriously wrong or what? Sony is letting the GH5 play all by itself with no Sony 10bit challange.

Something is wrong at Sony. This is the second total Sony NAB bust in a row. Im starting to get worried for them.

Don't have an answer for the UX180/HC-X1 or the DVX200 either. FDR-AX1 and PXW-Z100 are still in the lineup as the only competition that are 4 years old technology. As a Sony fan-- sad. Learning my GH5 now. I have had it for 2 weeks.

What we can hope is that the next iteration of the A7S and A7R is still in development to answer back, but it looks like we'll have to wait for the announcement of that camera, and hopefully it will have 2 UHS-II slots.
