Short break from MFT rumors to show you one video sample taken with the new Panasonic’s 4K VariCam 35. It’s not a FT camera but it shows you the quality of the 4K footage. It may be that one day we can have that 14-stops quality on a GH5…or not? :)

Thanks Irfin and David (via Newsshooter).

P.S.: New Panasonic’s 4K VariCam 35 specs:
4096 x 2160 Super 35mm CMOS sensor
14+ Stops
Internal 4K – 120fps
UHD in AVC-ULTRA 4K-RAW
Two XLR inputs.

Two technical notes: Site loading issue and facebook photo sharing.

Short technical note:

1) The site sometimes doesn’t load well or not at all. It’s Photokina time and therefore server has some issues :(  Please just reload the site again to see 43rumors again. Thanks!

2) Facebook mysteriously removed the possibility to share pictures on 43rumors account. I still don’t know why they did this but I will try to fix this or find another way to let readers share their pictures.

Thanks!
