ah yes damn I was going to ask that.. re the down sampling.. they don't mention it.. . although I agree that would silly not to .. and the f5/55 down sample from 4K to HD in camera so its not a new concept for them.. presumably it does ..or hopefully !..
I had a play with the "vista vision mode" and 16-9..the camera body is really a lovely shape .. and very small.. its not much bigger than the f55.. actually shorter I think but a bit wider.. I think you could even put it on a heavy duty gimbal setup..
Sorry didn't ask about the monitoring thing.. it only has Slog3.. so if it says it has false color then it must for slog3.. it had all the usual stuff and a separate EVF menu button .. don't know about the LUT/ LOG level thing.. but your right on the f5/55 there is no choice .. I always work off the LUTed image so for me its fine.. but not sure if there is an option ..maybe as even the fs7 has the choice I believe .. at least for the WFM..
But the image in that EVF is really something else.. Ive used the new Pana one.. and had a look at the new Canon one.. the Arri,s are of course great.. but this thing is amazing.. it looks like glass.. estimated price I was told..¥650,000.. about $5,800 US.. not bad really as prices go for those high end OLED EVF,s..and light years better than the older OLED.. which was about the same price..
Not a camera I,ll be buying.. but really its a work of art.. great design.. and a EVF to die for.. I imagine it will be very popular on rental f55,s for any high end work..
