    • VisionLOG for Sony A7RII
      can it be loaded to camera? 
    • Zoom recommendation for video?
      Hey everyone, I'm looking for a mid range zoom that's suitable for video for $1000 or under. I'm looking for something like a 28-70/35-105, even a 35-75 might do. I would prefer it to have manual aperture and of course the manual focusing has to feel good and be usable.  I know vintage zooms aren't usual that well regarded but it seems that new zooms never have manual apertures so that's concerning. I've been looking at Contax zeiss 28-85 f3.5-4 : big and not a constant aperture. Otherwise appears to be pretty nice. Contax Zeiss 35-75 f3.5 : good size, smaller filters than the 28-85. But obviously a limited range. Pentax 35-105 f3.5:  interesting range. Cheeeeap. Seems pretty decent optically. Vivitar  Series 1 28-90 f2.8-3.5: can't find a lot of info but seems interesting. Not constant aperture. Tokina 28-70 f2.6-2.8: pretty well regarded, no? An AF 28-70 f2.8: any of these suitable for video work? Let me know!    I'd appreciate any and all suggestions. Some weird , overlooked Soviet lens? Sure! Cine zooms are a bit out of my price range. $1000 tops. Prefer 500 or less. Thanks everyone!  
    • How Do You Record Audio To Your Arri Alexa Mini?
      I was just curious what do you guys usually do when recording audio to or with the Alexa Mini. Do you record it separately from the camera? How then do you sync it? If you are recording it directly to the camera, how do you do it? The way I do it is through an external timecode generator and I record audio separately, but one one-man shoots that is usually a huge pain in the butt. The Alexa Mini has a 5-pin lemo connector, which is so new I think I've only seen on this camera. There might already be some adaptor solutions out there but the fact that the camera only accepts line level audio means I can't use those portable preamps because they usually output to a 1/8" stereo mini jack. Have you guys found a preamp that outputs to one or two XLRs? 
    • Where can I get a New NX1?
      How is the battery life any worse in the NX500? Don't both cameras use the same battery? I've used my friend's NX500, and I thought the build was pretty good. Lack of weather sealing is indeed an important consideration though. I don't really use flash, so I don't really care about that omission but the lack of mic jack is definitely a major issue.  I thought at first that the lack of Gamma DR would be an issue but having seen @kinoseed's beautiful flower footage and night footage, I really don't think it is an issue at all.  Anything else?
    • An adventure into the Panasonic GX85/80 begins - and a look at the Leica Nocticron for Micro Four Thirds
      My mistake, Sanveer is correct. The video was tagged with GX80/GX85 tags but was not shot using the camera. It was tagged because their next project will be shot completely using the GX80/GX85.
