World First 8K M4/3 Mirrorless Camera Developed by SHARP

World First 8K M4/3 Mirrorless Camera Developed by SHARP, the prototype was displayed at CES event and according to SHARP representatives the camera will officially arrive at the end of 2019. It’s really interesting to see how this camera performs when we record 8K videos. And one of the most amazing thing is the Camera also carries built-in IS mechanism. I still remember Panasonic representatives told us they have removed IBIS from Panasonic GH5s camera due to heat dissipation issues. So, let’s hope for the best and Sharp new M4/3 8K solution will open new gateways for existing camera makers. BTW, they can do reverse engineering also to create their own iterations  😉

Dual base ISO Coming to Sony A7S III

TNC Exlusive: Dual base ISO coming to Sony A7S III. According to latest rumors surfaced over the web, Sony may implement Dual base ISO at Sony A7S III camera.

From Initial reports, its look like the prototypes of the camera have the Dual Base ISO feature, we do hope that the feature will continue in the production version of the camera.

It’s really a great news for professional filmmakers and serious youtubers if true. Dual native ISO means exactly there are two optimal settings of the camera. So, at native ISO is where Camera Performs best in-terms of SNR (signal to Noise ratio) and Dynamic Range.

Native ISO is actually a saturation point of any camera at which the analogue signal does not need to be modified before it converted into Digital Signal and you get optimal image quality.

So, in Dual base ISO we have two Values first is High Base ISO (ex 2500) and other is low base ISO (ex 500). Increasing the ISO above the lower base number amplifies the output but also increases noise in the image. But when the ISO reaches the higher base ISO, the circuit is switched so the photosites output higher levels without applying the additional gain.

Sony A7S III Specs / hints from Sony

In an recent interview with Sony Kenji Tanaka said

” (A7S II users)They want 4K/60p, 4:2:2 10-bit, and of course more battery power, increased AF accuracy – many things!”

But later in an interview he also added that

dpreview says, Sony’s Kenji Tanaka told us the a7S II successor would be “more than [a7S II users] expect.”

What actually coming inside Sony A7S III ?

Sony very clearly hinting us that upcoming camera have either 6K or 8K video recording options. And as we have published that Sony upcoming A7S III, Sony A7R IV and Sony A9 II camera will have 8K video recording capability. 8K video recording capability doesn’t mean you will get a 8k output, as we know the current line-up of Sony alpha fullframe and mirrorless camera uses 6K videos (Full sensor readout) to create 4K videos.

 Olympus 8K Mirrorless camera in Future RoadMap

It all started with Olympus, when the reveled their future strategy in their Annual Report of 2017. In an Annual report published by Olympus mentioned about the development of 8K video and PRO Lenses for their MFT lineup

Take a look at the important announcements made by Olympus back in 2017

1) Focus on the development of high-value-added mirrorless cameras (primarily OM-D series) and interchangeable lenses

(PRO series) boasting competitive prices

2)  Develop systems that allow for improved efficiency in new product manufacturing start-ups and mass production by

transferring production to Vietnam

3) Establish comprehensive range of technologies for 4K and 8K video, development of devices necessary for recording at

these resolutions, and optimization of interface with outputs (monitors)

So, competition is always very healthy and consumers will get advantage of it. But at the same time are we ready for 8K on our camera. Since we need high speed processing computers and 8K display units.

Take a look at the Key Points of interview

“we can assure you that there is no problem in developing sensors at 33 million pixels for filming in 8K. We started the 4/3″ saga with a sensor at 5 Mpx In 2003. Now the same sensor is at 20 Mpx with a much higher image quality especially for the management of electronic noise.”

1. 33MP 4/3 Sensor with 8K Video

We think 5K camera with an 33MP sensor is possible from Olympus since 2003 they are developing 43rd cameras and started with 5 megapixel sensors and now they have developed Olympus EM1 Mark II. world most advanced M4/3rd camera .

Panasonic GH6 to feature 8K Video

Panasonic GH6 8K

Panasonic GH6 is model will going to feature 6k OR 8k video inside it is a very big question standing in our front just after the announcement of Panasonic GH5 camera.

Past mention

In an article 1 year ago we have published that Panasonic is keeping eye on 8K Video, While announcing Panasonic G7 camera the issued a statement that

Panasonic announced plans for future 4K and 8K video and photo features, including 4K at 60fps and 120fps, as well as the ability to take 33 megapixel still images from 8K video footage. They say they are planning to have this technology ready for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games. No further information was given at the time.

If the camera records 8K video that also means you can capture 33 megapixel still images from 8K video footage. So a sensor has to at least 33+ MP.

Panasonic GH6K – Past footprints and future talk

Panasonic announced GH5 development announcement on Photokina 2016. But, the camera officially announced on January 2017, and Panasonic also promised future firmware updates that will expected to be announced on April 2017, to enhance the overall capability of the camera. Having said that, isn’t it too early to expect a GH series camera next year ? However, if Panasonic runs on schedule then we will sure see Panasonic GH6 camera on Photokina 2018

KineMax and Red Dragon to soon get serious competitor ?, let’s take a look at the trend of camera announcement

Possibility #1

  • GH1 – 2009
  • GH2 – 2010
  • GH3 – 2012
  • GH4 – 2014
  • GH5 – 2016 – 4K
  • GH6 – 2018 – 6K
  • GH7 – 2020 – 8K

Another Possibility… Panasonic GH6 with 8K

Recent Statement from Panasonic via DCWATCH

In an interview to DC WATCH Panasonic confirmed (translated text from Japanes)

In the speech when GH 5 development was announced with Photokina 2016, I presented the world of 8 K after 4 K as a future image. I think that this will be received in a certain way in normal evolution. However, 8K is 16 times the number of pixels of full HD, and the frame rate also evolves from 60p to 120p so far. Clearly, you can describe a world that human eyes can not pursue.

Panasonic talking confidently to put a 8K mirrorless camera on Market before or after 2020 Olympics, fact of the matter is if we look at the Olympics schedule the we will find the 2020 Olympics opening ceremony is on 24th July 2020 and Closing ceremony is on 9th August 2020.

photokina 2018

Possibility #2

  • GH1 – 2009
  • GH2 – 2010
  • GH3 – 2012
  • GH4 – 2014
  • GH5 – 2016 – 4K
  • GH6 – 2018 – 8K (development announcement on Photokina)
  • GH6 – 2019 – 8K (official announcement)

That clearly means Panasonic should announce a camera at the beginning / Q1 of 2020. So, there is a big possibility that Panasonic may skip 6K mirrorless GH series camera and directly announce a 8K capable camera sometime in 2019. Of course, we will see 8K camera development announcement on 2018 Photkina event.

Panasonic Resumes Sensor Development - Working on 8K Camera

Panasonic-2018-img

According to a news article published over Nikkei Panasonic sensor development was halted from 2011, finally they are resuming the R&D development and the company putting a effort of $80m to reinvigorate the image sensor business and finally gain more control over the camera market.

One of the most improvement goal of Panasonic is to bring the 8K sensor to consumer level cameras.

Panasonic-GM2-image

From where Panasonic was getting its sensors ?

We have seen so many mirrorless cameras including GH series in the past few years,  but the big question is if Panasonic halted its sensor development from 2011 than who is behind the sensor development of so many cameras announced after 2011…
