3.0 out of 5 stars REPLACE 5D MK 3 (4K VIDEO) → If it can record >30m video, then 5 stars., August 19, 2014
I used to record video using Canon's 5D3, until the apperence of this FZ1000, which blast off 5D3, because
when downsize 4K to video to 1080p, the clips are MUCH MORE SHARPER.

It replaces 5D MK 3 for since the downscaled 1080p from FZ1000's 4K movie is BETTER than those captured using 5D MK3.

It will be better if the company can lift the 30 minute limitation, and IMPROVE MANUAL FOCUS ASSIST.

Now the only reason to use 5DMK3 for 1080p video is @ low light condition and big lenses, such as 135/1.5, 200/1.8

Thank you.

4.0 out of 5 stars 5D3's RAW has better Dynamic range!!!, February 22, 2014
Black Magic arrives Malaysia finally.

Good news. 480GB SSD now can hold 75 minutes of 4k footage.
Great image quality.

Bad news. Highlight area are washed out like old digital camera. 5D3 handles highlight area much better.
Solution, to stop down a bit to avoid wash out area at highlight.

Black Magic engineers, please update your firmware to fix the highlight area wash out problems.

Surprise!!! It is heavy. ><

1.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced. Specs Correct:Upscaled FHD. Ciak Sai punya, August 24, 2013
Even the cheap Panasonic TA1 outperform this A100 in terms of FHD Quality in MP4 at 1080p30.

Please note what the tech specs says: 1.3MP effective recording pixels. (FHD 1080p should be 2MP+)

UPSCALED 1080p FHD VIDEOS with LITTLE DETAILS.

That's why my FZ150 (8MP effective), FZ200 (8MP ef.), V700 (3MP ef.) captures 1080p movies faithfully, not this A100.

And if you have a GOPRO HERO3 BLack, you know what I mean.

The tech specs is honest. PLease read it before you buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Using NSTC model in PAL region (Malaysia Sarawak), August 20, 2013
I give it 3 stars because it does not have 1/50 manual override. Need to wait some time for it to adjust auto shutter from 1/60 to 1/50, to be usable in Malaysia's 50Hz lighting.

By default, it will flicker in 50Hz lighting,
This 3D1 responses slower than others model to adjust the default auto shutter from 1/60 to 1/50.
It should update firmware to have 1/50 manual override.

These Cameras adjusts themselves to suit 50Hz lighting fast:
Kodak ZE1 (Lighting fast to detect 50Hz lighting), (auto shutter, no manual setting)

These camera perform magic 1/60 shutter in 50Hz lighting, flicker-removal.
Panasonic V700, V720 even usable in 60p 1/60 shutter. (manual adjust)

These NTSC models has manual setting 1/50, 1/100 shutter setting to perform well in 50Hz lighting under 30p
GF3

_ _ _
For tis Panasonic 3D1,
Pic Quality = 4 star.
3D Video Quality = * * * * * (5 star)
Convergence point adjust = * * * (3 star in photo, 5 star in video mode, because has +2 to -2 convergence point adjust)

NTSC in 50Hz lighting = * * (Sturborn in detecting 1/50 lighting, head ache to get it tuned to 1/50 auto)

Price = * * * * * (Great product below $200 / MYR 600)

Can't find this 3D1 camera in any outlets in Sarawak, they only sell non-3D compacts, and sometime lelong them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fringing, Soft, July 1, 2013
Before this, I am so surprise why got 8 give 5 star for this lens, but in fact this lens delivers terrible results (for this price tags)

Putting it with 5D3, the picture's corners' softness and fringing is as like as kit lens (18-55) at Txi at 18.

For the quality it delivers, the fair value of price tag of this lens should around $150.

I have others canon prime lens, and I can give 4 or 5 stars to them:
40/F2.8 STM (5+)
135/F2L (5)
200/F2.8: (5)
35/F2 (Older version), (4)

But for this 28/F2.8 IS, it deserve a 1 star.

For 50/1.8, I give it 2 star.
For 50/1.4 I give it 4 star

in terms of sharpness and fringing (esp in the corder)

Do more reseaserach before you buy, and don't trust the 5-star reviews.

Very regretted, bought this lens. (Malaysia)

1.0 out of 5 stars Movie- Ghosting problem in FZ200. (FZ150 does not), February 3, 2013
Even you set the ISO to 100 shooting movies,
there are some kind of ghosting, especially indoor sports.
Ghosting present at 60 PSH, 120/240 high speed mode.

The FZ150 does not present these problem. (though FZ150 does not have 120p mode. and smaller iris at far zoom)

What's for 120p High speed movie, with ghosting issues? Kanasai.

5.0 out of 5 stars From Sibu, Malaysia (Confirm OK after firmware update), January 17, 2013

Will update my review after gives more test.
Malaysia price is quite high MYR 1500 (USD 500)

5.0 out of 5 stars 6D at left, 5D at right. Cheaper solution for 3D movies., October 27, 2012
Pardon me to write this review before I actually owned it. I am planning to get one.

I own a 5DM3, and seeking anohter FF to pair together to produce 3D movies.
According to the specs, the 6D has similar quantum efficiency as that of 5DM3's.

** 5DM3 vs 6D **
Basicly, when shooting photos, 5DM3 is preferred since it has 60+ AF points. (6D have 11 AF points nia)

For those who are going to take sports photo, you might caught into AF problems with 6D having fewer AF points, and lesser photo fps. (See my 5-Star review at 5DM3)

You might also consider an 1DX for more fps.

As a owner of 5DM3, investing into this 6D as a cost-efficient solution to Make 3D movies, paired 5DM3. (Extra $ goes in investing lens. Buy a third party 135/1.8 or just Canon 135/2L lens, for example)

5D3 PK 6D
AF Points >> 60 vs 11
frame rate>> 6 vs 4.5
AF speed >> fast vs slower and less accurate
Storage >> CF+SD vs SD only

5D3 better?

6D has GPS? My 5D3 doesn't have. Hmmm?

** Conclusion **

If you are satisfied with lesser AF points, slower AF speed, lesser fps, 6D can be a good solution.

If you demand more accurate AF, faster AF or higher fps, then you should buy 5D3 or 1DX.

6D, 5D3 and 1DX are indeed all well propotionated for their price/performance.

** Complaints **

For 6D, 5D3 and 1DX: Why not having 1080p60??? Cheaper Sony does offer.
Have to bring Panasonic V700M or FZ150,FZ200 in addition with 5D/6D if there a need 1080p60 movies. 1DC is too expensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Performance at MSSM Olahraga Sarawak!, October 20, 2012
Taking this sports events at Malaysia, (with 200L II 2.8 lens, using 60MB/s CF Card, JPEG Large Fine)

This 5DM3 keeps 6fps as promised bursting continously for 20 seconds. No lag, and >95% pics focus correctly. Highly satisfied.

Also bring a 650D, this one slows down to 2fps after 3-5 seconds using JPEG Large fine. (Extreme 45MB/s card). With 200/2.8L II lens, of course)

Using D3200, KANASAI!!!! after bursting for 2 seconds (6 pics), it slows down to less than 1 pics per seconds. D3200 never write up to 45MB/s. Tipu orang. 24Megapixels? KANASAI. <70% pics focus correctly with 55-300 VR lens. ( Sorry I have no pro-specs lens for Nikon)

* * * * * * * * * * * *

The reporters from press are bringing 1DX, and of course, they rock with 12/14 pics per second.
