You are worth following. Thank you for taking the time to do this video. Especially the Anamorphic Part of the S1H. I wanted to shoot my first feature film “Loving Till It Hurts” on a anamorphic lens on my GH4, unfortunately I didn't have the budget but I still got a good project out of 16×9. So far I've gotten 3 awards for this project. The film was shot on a GH4, Panasonic 50mm, 14mm and my favorite heavy lens Voigtlander 35mm. Feel free to ask me any questions about the making of it. Can’t wait to shoot my next project with an Anamorphic Lens on Ether GH5s or SH1, I'm still undecided between those two cameras. Please show me some love and support and check out my film “Loving Till It Hurts” on Amazon prime or watch it for FREE here on TubiTV:

Thanks for this video!
I didn't know that both the F6 & S1H have the same sensor. I was expecting superior dynamic range from the F6; the way it was advertised, greater than the Ursa Mini Pro G2, but I'm not sure now, and the dynamic ranges seems quite similar to the S1H (the same sensor). I wish the S1H recorded in Raw or ProRes, but SD cards :[]
Both cameras had great images.

Bill Young says:

17:02 In my opinion there is to much bilateral smoothing going on. I'm very attuned to this as I built a post denoise filter set based on Bilateral smoothing and can tell you it's very easy to spot when to much gets applied to an image. While shapes remain identifiable the colors look more like simple gradients with luminescence variations on top. If over applied it's very unnatural looking, and those tree leaves are prime examples of over done on the E2. I'm sure Z-raw will fix the issue. In many ways it's more noticeable in the tree trunk on screen left.

Bill Young says:

12:42 I think it might be time to consider investing into a new X-Rite Passport, because those color swatches look like they are about to fall off.

Bill Young says:

The E2 at 8:17 is applying a significant amount of over smoothing to the image. Freckles and pores are being reduced to an almost continuous tone on the right side of her forehead and right cheek (screen left). There is also a very hard shadow transition line on her right cheek next to her nose that looks like the result of a transition between two bilaterally smoothed zones. This smoothing gives an unnatural roll off to her face making it look overly filtered. The S1H on the other hand shows all the missing detail, and there is a narrow gradient instead of a hard transition line. If the S1H had the same issue I would have chalked the filtered look to Youtube compression, but clearly it's a pre-YouTube artifact.
