DPreview had the opportunity to sit down and chat with the director of Panasonic’s Imaging Business Division, Yosuke Yamane last month during CES. They’ve just posted their interview online and it offers some interesting insights into how well Panasonic has been doing in the world of full-frame mirrorless. But it also provides some hints about the future of the Panasonic cameras and the L Mount Alliance. Specifically that there may be more members being added to it.
Although “shutter angle” is mostly a digital concept these days rather than a physical thing, it’s the term that determines how the camera calculates your shutter speed when shooting video.

DPReview has just posted the below test footage, though, shot with the Nikon Z6 and it shows that it’s a very different animal, getting much closer to the Sony A7III in terms of quality.
The Fujifilm GFX 50R was rumored for a while, and ahead of Photokina 2018, it was finally officially announced. Now that we know the specs, he price and the availability of the camera, a few hands-on looks have arrived as well to show us what the camera is like in action. Here’s the summary of the hands-on videos we’ve found so far.
