Why can’t people understand a simple process…I have never advocated this as a great 4K camera, the fact it films 4K 50p is fantastic but at 150MB/s and a smaller chipset will not allow this camera to produce stunning 4K master quality pictures.
If you want stunning 4K 50p pictures Panasonic produce the VariCam HS.
What the HC-X1000 will do is produce stunning HD pictures if you master your footage in 4K 50p and edit the 4K footage on an constrained HD timeline (compressing 4K to HD) giving you effectively 10bit 444 quality HD pictures.
Stop telling me its a crap 4K camera if your soul intention is to produce master quality 4K 50p footage… it’s obvious from its price point that its not going to produce master quality 4K footage.
If other reviewers have marked this camera on its 4K abilities thats fine but my review only takes into account its ability to compress average 4K footage into stunning HD footage.
You are not forced to buy any camera, a review done by me is my own personal findings which I pass onto yourselves. This rant came from a Vimeo reply by someone who did not listen to my review properly.
Can we download the original 4k ? (No it was not edited in 4K)
I don’t think Vimeo is doing a very good job on this video or maybe it’s just not that good. (I am not in charge of Vimeo’s quality nor your internet speed or equipment you are watching it on)
I want 50p/60p 4k and this camera seems to fit the bill of “too good to be true” (VariCam HS)
I have seen terrible reviews of this camera and on this Vimeo footage is looks poor but your words say its great so maybe we are just not seeing what you are, hence the request to put the download option on for us to see the original 4k footage. (HD footage !!!)
I have a 4k TV so I am keen to see something which can deliver the goods. (Not 4K 50p at this price point)
I have a Sony A7s which is great for HD but I am not sure I want a third party add on to record 4k in only 30p i.e. the Shogun Thanks in advance (Stick to your A7s/Shogun…You won’t get 4K 50p master quality footage below £5000 till we move onto 8K)
Since I am a nice chap I have just uploaded some 4K footage from the Panasonic HC-X1000 for anyone who cares to view it in 4K but remember Vimeo converts all footage to 25p
