  1. Suggestion for GH5 lenses?

    I have been using the sigma 18-35 with the speedbooster to shot weddings. Having a low light zoom helps a lot in a fast paced environment. I actually like the weight when filming handheld as i feel it gives me more stability. I prefer the look of the Voigtlander and SLR Magic i have
  2. Cinelike-D and profiles tips and techniques wanted

    Another update on Portrait for those who might want a straight out of camera alternative to CineD. All shot on a GH5 (1 shot on a GX85) in Portrait. I'm happy with the skin tones (even though Youtube is a bit shitty). What do you think?
  3. What about underexpose a tad bit?

    i do the same
  4. Vice uk has produced a documentary about me

    What is that supposed to mean? I also think you have misunderstood what being an artist is.
  5. Vice uk has produced a documentary about me

    It's attention seeking by a poor little rich kid under the guise of offering a smidgen of info on what the documentary was shot on. IMHO
  6. Vice uk has produced a documentary about me

    It was an interesting and well made mini documentary. I feel sorry for the guy who went through the attack on the Bataclan, he's clearly suffering. Gregory comes across as a complete twat, a spoilt brat who wants to play at being some kind of twisted French Rambo. To much money and time and a lack of morals and braincells. The rise of extreme rightwing thoughts and thuggish groups is just as worrying as any Islamic terrorist threat. You only have to the USA to see where letting these idiots get out of control gets you. The vast majority of the terrorism they have suffered there has been commited by armed rightwing groups who are defending whatever nonsense they have in their tiny brains. It's time the vast majority of society stood up to these thugs and their mouthpieces. I have Polish friends who are about to emigrate from Poland as they are so fed up of this shit and these morons. What is clear is that society does need to find some kind of purpose other than the pursuit of money (for greed or survival), nationalistic or religious nonsense. There are a lot of bored and unhappy people out there just looking for something....anything. For some the escape might be drugs, their work, tv but for others it's violence. It's a real shame
  7. Media bias and Google/YouTube

    Some people just want to be offended and in my experiences it's often those with more offensive thoughts that get offended easily! All the data mining and election manipulation is worrying in this day and age. It is too easy to hack the system if you have the means and the will.
  8. Media bias and Google/YouTube

    Whilst it's true that "Guardian Reader" has been used to describe reasonably well off people with a leftist view point, usually by right leaning Daily Mail readers (now that really is a rag that shouldn't be taken seriously), it is actually a paper that should be taken seriously. It is one of the few papers still doing serious investigative journalism not only in the UK, but all over the world. It of course has opinion pieces, some of more value than others, but in general they are well written and use reason to back up their arguments whether you agree with them or not. It's not perfect by any means but much better than the majority of media out there. The idea that all mainstream media is bad is a dangerous concept. One must learn to analyse the information and reporting provided and then decide how far you should trust them. Of course institutions can change. Here in Spain El Pais used to be one of the world's leading papers but it has lost it's way a bit recently. Anyway, I vote John Pilger.
  9. Media bias and Google/YouTube

    A nice day out on the Welsh coast...
  10. Media bias and Google/YouTube

    So you didn't spend your summer lounging around at the beach?
  11. gx85 to gh5?

    I have them both. The Gx85 is great for the money but is a bit fiddly to shoot with and has rubbish sound. The GH5 big advantages are 4k 50p, 10 bit, better ergonomics and a decent evf.
  12. Cinelike-D and profiles tips and techniques wanted

    I've heard it's good but for wedding work I've been looking for a straight out of camera look. Portrait seems to fit the bill for me. I might try Leemings on my next music video though.
  13. Cinelike-D and profiles tips and techniques wanted

    Just an update, I have tried the Portrait profile on a wedding shoot. For a straight out of camera with no need to grade look, I think it has great skin tones, which is what I'm looking for mostly. It doesn't have quite the same dynamic range as CinelikeD or the 'thickness' of image (someone described colour as such) but skin colours look spot on.
  14. It depends on where you intend to show the videos. If the output will be shown on a vertical screen then it would be fine. Otherwise I'm not sure there would be any real advantage.
  15. GH5 Issues One Month Ownership

    I'd like to permanently change the shutter angle dial to iso.
