Panasonic, Canon and Nikon. Three New Cameras, Oh My.
Three new notable cameras were anounced last week. A killer little number GH3 from Panasonic. The new Canon 6D full frame prosumer model and Nikon’s D600 full frame job. The Panasonic GH3 looks like the most improved of the bunch. The higher 72 Mbps rate is great. However the M4/3″ sensor has it’s limitations on the wide side. I am also not a big fan of the smaller sensor. Maybe it’s a guy thing. Canon announced the lame duck 6D with similar features to the 5DMKIII with the added bonus of WiFi. Nikon announced the fairly inexpensive full frame D600 with moire issues and a yet to catch up to video system. They might get there one day. For now I’m sticking with our Sony FS700 system. I still think it’s the best bang for the dough with possible 4K upgrades in the near future.
Here are the specifications of the cameras.
