One of the frustrations of shooting 4K on many of the recent DSLRs (particularly Canon) has been that the image is severely cropped. If new rumors are to be believed, however, the Canon 90D may feature 4K capture using the full APS-C sensor.
Canon Rumors posits that “we may be getting the new generation of Canon sensors with line skipping or pixel binning for video work.”
Previous rumors suggested the 4K video capture from a 32.5mp APS-C DPAF sensor. Full-width 4K capture on the APS-C sensor would be a very welcomed improvement for what may be the last of this prosumer breed of DSLRs. If this turns out to be true, I think the Canon 90D will sell like hotcakes at the rumored $1400 pricepoint.

Panasonic unveiled its new Lumix GH5S this week at CES 2018. It’s built for a low-light and video shooting with a 10.3MP Micro Four Thirds image sensor. It looks a lot like Panasonic’s version of Sony’s A7S product line.
Panasonic Lumix GH5S Key Features
- 10.28MP Multi Aspect Ratio MOS Sensor
- DCI 4K60p and Full HD 1080/240p Video
- Internal 4:2:2 10-Bit Long GOP
- V-Log L Gamma and HDR Hybrid Log Gamma
- 0.76x 3.68m-Dot OLED Viewfinder

- Dual Native ISO 400 and ISO 2500
- Dual UHS-II SD Slots; Wi-Fi & Bluetooth
- Advanced DFD AF System
- 12 fps Cont. Shooting and 4K PHOTO Modes
Note the key features mostly highlight the video features and reinforces its position as a camera made for the video enthusiasts and pros. Nonetheless, it is still a full featured photography tool that captures 10.3MP RAW image files and up to 12fps. However, it’s worth noting that Panasonic did not include the sensor-shift stabilization inside the GH5S in order to avoid problems with sensor movement during video capture.
The Panasonic GH5S retails for $2499 and should be available in February. You can pre-order it and get the full spec list here at B&H Photo.
