  1. #1 Pocket 4k open gate 
    Hi All,

    IS any chance that the pocket will have an open gate sensor reading? Even a max 30FPS?

    Thank you all,

    best

    M

    I believe, open gate is 4K DCS 17:9 format, if this is a similar sensor to the GH5S, but again, it could be something different, BM has not confirmed this anyway. But the AOV will be similar to the GH5S in 17:9 or 16:9 aspect ratios. In 4K DCS (which is open gate at 17:9) specifications show it will shoot up to 60fps.
    Cheers

    I believe John Brawley said no.

    Yup. This. The sensor is a 17:9 sensor. The lens mount is m43, but it's not a classical 4:3 sensor as in the GH5 for instance.

    Might have something to do with the licensing for the sensor?

    Nope, it's literally a 17:9 sensor. There's no active photosites outside of that area.

    But if the sensor is the IMX294 and width is 4096 but 4:3 is 3704 × 2778, why not a 4096x2778?
    It's almost 4:3
    Unless that's not the sensor used in this camera.
    Am I missing something?

    Seems the biggest window implemented on this sensor is 17:9, 18.96x10mm window. It is all about how the sensor is worked in the circuit, no?
    Cheers

    So, the lack of open gate is done on purpose?
    Because the other cameras with same sensor have the open gate option.
    I'm just trying to understand why that is not implemented.
