    The colors of the food look fantastic, really love how easy it will be to get a balanced image straight out of the camera (basing off of the released clips, I’m just assuming he didn’t have to do much to the image to get the skin tones and colors where they are).

    Great. Now not only do I want to get my hands on the p4k (which was already the case because of all the previous clips), but I'm also hungry now! And for weird flowery stuff I won't be able to find here. GGWP

    Now, morer seriously: the colors do indeed look super natural in all clips so far, and the image is clear and clean. I'm eager to shoot RAW video on this thing.

    Here's their BTS video showing how they used the cam hand held without stabilizers in some scenes and also mounting it on a drone.
    Anyone here knows the lens? looks like a canon zoom, interested to know if it has lens stabilization.

    It says in the info on the original video: Lens : Metabones EF-MFT Speed Booster Ultra 0.71x + Sigma 17 - 70 F2.8 - 4 Zoom. + Kani Variable ND.

    B&H says that lens has Optical Stabilizer.

    It has but it doesn't work well, especially compared to Canon IS. I sent it back for that reason.

    Considering the clip, looks a lot like Nikon video to me, should be the grading though.

    The noise on the 0:50 mark (mostly on the lower part of frame) is really concerning, what I find weird about all the footage that has come out is the inconsistency of the noise... sometimes is barely noticeable even on the high ISO shots (like the one towards the end of the "candy" video) and sometime its just IN YOUR FACE... grain should be something you should be able to control in post... but random shots with noise is a big concern ... I can just hear clients going "why so noisy " with shots like the one on the 0:50 mark.

    ( The setting looks like there is plenty of light, it doesn't look underexposed, it doesn't look like they applied a heavy lut .. so whats the explanation ?... looks involuntarily noisy and that is my worry)

    My guess is that some people are using the camera outside of its two native ISO settings. So maybe they ramp it up to 1250 or something, instead of going to 3200 and then stopping down or adding ND.

    There's a major difference between the two that people will adjust to.

    This one didn't knock me out...

    I think this particular piece could have been done on a GH5.

    Meh...

    It seems like some the people who have the few advance cameras are not really putting a lot of thought or work into what they are shooting and posting. Just kind of haphazard shooting. I don't think that helps showcase the camera at all.

    Or maybe I'm getting flamed now...
