      Borrowing a friend's! Haven't done a ton with it yet, just testing for an upcoming narrative. Loving what I'm seeing so far!

      Mostly using Natural, as that's what worked best on my GH3, but I may give Standard a whirl. I'm finding I can pull a lot back from the highlights and shadows in Resolve; holds up like a champ in the grade. Highlights roll off nicely, and dropping the mids a bit gives you a beautiful tone curve with very little effort.

      However, even at ISO 1600, there's a fair bit of fine grain (not ugly, but present), and any details below 30 IRE or so get fairly muddy. Definitely more of a S16 look. I dig it, but not an aesthetic that works for everything. I'd peg DR in good light at around 11 stops, but I'd need to test in more controlled circumstances to say for sure.

      Using the right glass matters a lot. My Lumix glass feels VERY sterile and the colors aren't to my liking, but my SLR Magics, Leica Rs, and Minoltas bring out the best in that sensor. Haven't tried my Canon FDs yet; might throw them on there with the Speed Booster tomorrow. Ditto my Olympuses, though they render too clinically on Panasonic bodies in my experience. (Yes, I have waaaaaaay too much glass.)

      Usability is great. The screen is sharp, battery life impressive, menus intuitive, grip comfortable, and overall just a pleasure to handle. I only wish the card slot were on the side, but something has to give at this price point.

      Hoping to get out and shoot more tomorrow afternoon!
    • A story about 4K XAVC-S, Premiere and transcoding
      Prior to editing of 4K XAVC-S files, always use Sony Prepare and save the file to ProRes...It is the easiest way to correctly interpret the file stream.
    • Computer Help!
      I've never worked with proxies but also need to try this! I'm not really tied to anything but when I took up this a few years ago fcpX wasn't popular and my school had premiere so that's what I learned and am comfortable with using. If the tides change though, I know how to edit video in final cut as well or any other software but premiere is where it's at for me right now.
