Panasonic News From CES

I'm going to do this short-hand, as there's a lot coming down the pike today, and Panasonic didn't really say much new.

  • The S series will become available at the end of March 2019.
  • The sensor shift still photo mode is a series of eight images, which implies a half-pixel shift for each. Sony's version is four images.
  • HLG seems to be the latest gimcrack buzzterm this year. HLG stands for Hybrid Log Gamma, and is essentially "capture/play in Log, color grade in real time." And yes, the S series cameras has an HLG mode. The good news is HLG is free of royalties, so perhaps it really will catch on.
