    • Panasonic GH5 - all is revealed!
      Maybe this has nothing to do with anything, but since you shoot bands, it got me thinking of the great stills photographers that documented the great rock groups, jazz and blues musicians, shooting in hotel rooms, buses, airplanes, backstage - all in grainy black and white - I think any artificial lighting at all would have ruined those iconic images. Anyway, there's a place for natural or existing light, as well as for strobes, LED, fluorescent and tungsten. I like your shots BTW.
    • The 4K Fuji X-T2 is here
      We look forward to seeing some clips of your trip! You must be excited. I have been using Hoya HMC NDX8 filters exclusively for the past couple of years - until proven otherwise, I think they perform as well or better than some filters costing hundreds of dollars. But yes, it's not variable.

      I am pretty sure the smaller the sensor the less mass you have to move, ergo better stabilization. Same goes for the lens associated with it and focus. Plus they have been building them a Lot of years. But every full size ENG camera that I ever operated never had stabilization, or auto focus, yet they did the job. But I guess since they weighed 20+ pounds helped a lot. One reason I am not too big on DSLR'S or Smaller Cameras, no pun.
    • Panasonic GH5 - all is revealed!
      Still no shining examples online showing improved AF-C on the GH5, but I'm not losing hope yet. 🤓 For my own purposes, I don't need a camera to follow a speeding train headed directly toward me: I just want to be able to set up the camera in my room, walk leisurely (or hurriedly!) to my chair and have the focus lock onto me without any hesitation. Maybe it can do that already, I haven't tried with the G85 yet. Maybe this evening. But yes, as someone already pointed out, a dedicated lens and servo motor (along with smaller sensor) has got to be why camcorders are better at this sort of thing? Or are they? Are camcorders faster than Sonys at AF-C? However - what I'm really looking forward to on the GH5 is the joystick. Not surprisingly, nobody has really talked much about this. I don't believe, when rumors of the GH5 began to surface, that a joystick was number one on anyone's wishlist. Yet now that the GH5 will have those focus points, it should allow a great deal more precision for plain old AF. As some extremely perspicacious person mentioned in this thread before 😄, when in manual mode with AF enabled, even pressing the touchscreen with the tip of the most delicate index finger in the world is not as accurate as hovering a joystick over the desired focus point. But here I'm only talking about AF-S, not AF-C.
    • Canon XC10 4K camcorder
      Idk, cameras aren't supposed to look good at 3200 ISO, that's why they make lights. I was getting clean results up to 1600 ISO, which was a first for me with any camera I have owned, but I still never used it... I'd light for native ISO in c-log... but everyone's different with different needs. And I don't know what kind of camera budget you have but I can't afford a camera that loses about 40% of its value less than two months after I bought it.
