      Damn, you've got some serious skillz.
    • 5DIV full spec and full image leak
      A lot of people believe this, sadly it isn't true. 90% of the compression is done BEFORE the codec stage. You have the 12bit or 14bit raw sensor data, full RGB It gets hacked down to some shitty facsimile of it - 8bit YUV And 444 turns into 4:2:0 Then they label it 'uncompressed 422' when it comes to HDMI, which the advertising standards authority really should look into... In fact it is a signal in a highly compressed form, it just hasn't had the H.264 encoding 8bit is compression 4:2:0 is compression Most cameras that claim to do 422 over HDMI show no sign of it in the actual images. Nikon have a 20MP APS-C sensor that can only do an 8MP window at 30fps Samsung since 2 years ago (Photokina 2014) have had a 28MP APS-C sensor that can do a 24MP 16:9 full sensor readout (6.5K) and produce DCI 4K from it on-chip, along with encoding H.265, the most computationally advanced codec and the most advanced chipset in any camera to date. This just shows to me that behind the glossy exterior and marketing Nikon are using cheap Chinese made parts in their cameras, that pretty much anyone (Sony, Toshiba, etc.) can build for them en-masse. They really should have built a cutting edge semiconductors factory of their own and blazed a trail, as it is they will always reliant on others and quite possibly picking up yesterday's chips in the process, rather than the best.
    • DJI X5R - First Impressions
      I've used the DJI X5R with the Osmo on 5 shoots now.  As I got this to replace my Ronin-M so i could take gimbal shots with me anywhere without hassle, it's definitely working out very well. On previous shoots where I'd be limited to filming static angles (due to time and location), I find myself whipping out the Osmo RAW very often - grabbing much more dynamic movement.  The workflow is overstated by others on the net. Maybe they find it to much, however I don't have an issue taking the files from Cinelight to Resolve to export to ProRes. One thing I need to work on is maximising the dynamic range from the raw files, I feel I'm not quite there yet.  I've attached two stills, first one is the regular 60mbps 1080p file (not done much 4k yet as it's hungry) and the Raw to ProRes file. These were only very quick, rough grades, so they are in no way perfect (notice the smaller file has better skies, my bad). However see how much more detail the raw file holds against the regular file (look at the grass).  In motion, the 60mbps file holds itself up quite well and looks fine for a lot of stuff, besides some minor dancing aliasing on grass. The raw file in comparison feels much nicer, organic and chunkier. To me, it feels like what the GH4 would be like in raw. DJI's colours are a bit more "cartoony" than Panasonics, so that does need a bit of work in post.  Should have some proper videos out soon! (when the client decides to release them that is!!).
