"Beer and Roaming in Las Vegas"- Digital Photography Podcast 617

This is The Digital Story Podcast #617, Jan. 9, 2018. Today's theme is "Beer and Roaming in Las Vegas." I'm Derrick Story.

Opening Monologue

The Consumer Electronics Show is one of the few remaining technology events where press still receives the red carpet treatment. We enjoy a well-stocked media center, excellent PR events with substantial refreshments, and lots of access to the stars of the show. And this week I'm going to take you behind the scenes as we junket together at CES.

Panasonic announces Lumix DC-GH5S, an even more video-focused GH5

DP Review reports: The GH5S uses a slightly larger, but lower resolution 12.5MP sensor whose 'multi-aspect' design offers a series of ~10.2MP crops with the same angle of view. It gains the ability to shoot the wider-angle DCI 4K format at up to 60p, whereas the GH5 tops out at 24p. Both cameras can shoot UHD 4K at up to 60p.

The sensor features a "dual gain" design that Panasonic calls "Dual Native ISO." This uses two separate sensor read-out circuits - one that maximizes dynamic range at lower sensitivities, and one that prioritizes noise reduction at a dynamic range cost. Unusually, Panasonic lets you limit its camera to one of these modes.

The Panasonic Lumix DC-GH5S will be available February 2nd for $2499 body-only.
