Below 50 meters Stix become like chewed marshmallow. I tried them many times. You need a much dens closed cell foam like thalagal or equivalent.
But of course it's not a op requirement

In Topic: New Panasonic S1 & S1R FF Camera for Videography?

Cameras seen at Photokina are just (ugly) 3D printed mockups. 

IMHO it was move trying to stop/pause people from jumping on the Canikon bandwagon: a way to say "I'm here too".

 

I'm under the impression that specs will change a lot before we will see a real SR1 on the block.

Again a new mount announced in few weeks?!?

Canon => RF mount

Nikon => Z mount

Panasonic => L mount

That's all? Or Olympus will come soon with something ?

 

Frankly this is a mess, we'll have to be stuck with on brand.

or just keep buying EF mount that should be compatible with the three new comers.

 

All of them are strong competitor and all of their mounts are patented hence you have to pay licenses to use it. So "owning" your mount is a savvy decision.

 

Panasonic owns Leica. full-frame Leica SL and APS-C Leica CL and TL-series cameras use L mount already so it makes sense using it.

Canon and Nikon had to introduce a minimum set of lenses along with their new mirrorless cameras. Panasonic will adopt the same strategy but it can already use the 10 Leica lens already available. Moreover, with the Sigma alliance will have affordable lens asap: Sigma needs "simply" adapt their existing lens to the new mount.
