But I don't think its not going to happen, unless there is support for some sort of LANC controller to control the camera.
The camera is heavily controlled by the touch screen, with the videos I've seen, most of the adjusters being in different places depending on what you want to adjust. Making the use of hard to soft buttons (like on the atomos housings) would make a mess of the screen, as you would have to cover the number of options.
Have a look here, to see what I mean about the different screens (click the different 'Monitor' 'FPS' 'Shutter Angle' etc.. on the webpage to see the different screens)
Would be amazing thou, as it shares the GH5s sensor, but seems to extract more performance from it.
Exciting times, especially with ProResRAW on the horizon too!
Not sure if those onscreen item can be navigated using some sort of cursor button. Time will tell, there is already quite a few underwater touchscreen solution out there. If there is a wifi remote control ability, there might be some possibility of tethering solution?
This is really a promising camera. IMHO and my little experience with earlier blackmagic cinema cameras, their color science is very good. And raw changes everything since it tolerates heavy color correction in post in addition to the ability to adjust white balance. If a housing is made for it, I’ll buy it in a heart beat
Most of the needed functions have buttons:
Touchscreen menus on 5 inch screen. 1 x Power Switch, 1 x Record Button, 1 x Stills Button, 1 x Scroll Wheel with push integrated into handgrip, 1 x ISO Button, 1 x White Balance, 1 x Shutter Button, 3 x software configurable Fn buttons, 1 x High Frame Rate (HFR) Button, 1 x Zoom Button, 1 x Menu Button, 1 x Play Button, 1 x Focus Button and 1 x IRIS Button.
