Photokina 2016 is coming to an end and what a show it has been for filmmakers! We asked you to chose your favourite filmmaking related products from a list of nominees. Now the voting is over and we have clear winners! Here are the results: We handed over the prizes to the representatives of the companies who we spoke to. 1st Prize: Panasonic GH5 We are happy to announce that Panasonic with their GH5 announcement won first prize. It’s true that technically it’s not a finished product but rather an announcement of some few specs – but the exciting thing about this is definitely Panasonic’s willingness to put 10-bit 4:2:2 color space in such a small interchangeable lens camera package. 2nd Prize: Syrp Slingshot People also got very excited about the Syrp Slingshot, an affordable wirecam setup that many haven’t seen yet. Other more high-end solutions have been used on sports and nature films for years now, but this makes such a system more attainable for a lot of users. 3rd Prize: GoPro Hero 5 & Karma System GoPro is back with their new Hero 5 camera and a whole system of usages for that camera (or their new Hero Session). The Osmo-like Hero-5-Grip is an additional use, as is their Karma drone, but how the GoPro products compare to the smart stuff coming out of DJI remains to be seen.Read more
