CameraProject:We took the GH5 out to test not only it’s video capability, which everyone else is talking about but also look at it’s stills performance. Unfortunately, along the way, we ran into some SD card troubles, which we talk more about in the video. Check out our tests of the GH5, it’s autofocus, low-light and other key features in the iconic Brooklyn Bridge Park overlooking the Manhattan skyline. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtJ2dHR3NoM

New info about the AXIOM Beta Open Source MFT mount camera

Cinema5D interviewed the project leader of AXIOM Sebastian Pichelhofer. As you may recall this is an Open Source camera which comes in different mount including passive MFT mount.

Some key info:

  • Over 500 people backed their successful Indiegogo campaign
  • Magic Lantern was assigned to develop the “color science” behind the camera
  • The camera will actually have a few “color science options” to choose from, making it possible to change “film stock” at the click of a button
  • The philosophy of building a “Lego-type camera” hasn’t changed. One will be able to mix and match between different components like lens bayonets, sensor types and such
  • Two kinds of camera enclosures are in the making: a “Lite” 3D-printed version for users who need it now, and a robust version made of aluminium that will serve the majority of future users
  • The guys at Apertus are looking at an SD RAID recording solution for their camera, where users can swap the cards according to their needs themselves
  • EVERYTHING is open to the community to inspect and check, from cost of materials to the actual development status. See full details at the Apertus site here
