    User LUT monitor SWIT CM-55C

    I had the same idea. But something is buggy. I don't know if it's LUTCalc or the monitor (The LUTs seem to work correctly in FCPX). The LUTs with exposure compensation -2 and -3 stops work perfectly. The LUT deLOG and LUT exposure compensation -1 produce false colors in the highlights. I tried everything for hours I dropped. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LZMwjus41s9pEpzNwpJ9UfiBpl5C5h25/view?usp=sharing I don't have photoshop. There is also this solution but too complicated for me. http://opensource.mikrosimage.eu/ColorPipe-tools/LUTLab/LUT_to_LUT/ I hope the kaisen firmware add downconvert high precision LUT to 17^3.

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    A very interesting video about how to optimise exposure on the BMPCC4K from one of the best channels about filmmaking and cameras on YT (IMHO), hope you guys will find it useful! 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8hHFt3ChZ8
  4. I've also tried 1:1 4032x2268 Crop mode which is basically m43 sensor area. With 10bit it's continous, with global draw on it will give a black and white preview for accurate framing while recording. Pretty impressive, I thought 2k was amazing back in the 50d times, but this... Andrew Reid would write: MAGIC LANTERN UNLOCKS POKET4K QUALITY RAW VIDEO IN A 50$ 5 years old canon body.

    Panasonic camera hack, with 10bit 4444, The Digital Super 8 Bolex

    I'd definitely be interested in this. Probably not for work but would be cool to use for personal projects or artsy stuff.

    GH5 autofocus issue

    shouldn't affect it unless it was raining or something
  7. Show us some footage from it. Would be interesting.

    Exposing properly with Dual ISO cameras

    That’s not true. You can use iso 100 to 800 perfectly fine. Skip 1000 and go from 1250 up. You (I) only consider the noise etc. once you hit 6400 or more. 400 and 3200 are of course ideal, but it’s far from a hard limit one should never deviate from. Like he says in the video , as long as you understand the benefits and pitfalls of the settings, you can make educated and informed decisions on a scene by scene basis. Limiting yourself to 400 and 3200 can of course work, but it’s not a rule I would follow unquestionably.

    Exposing properly with Dual ISO cameras

    Speaking about ISO. https://www.redsharknews.com/technology/item/1966-understanding-iso-in-digital-cameras,-it-s-not-what-you-think-it-is Yeah from what I have seen from this camera there is not much freedom to just pick any ISO you want or need. When it works it works, but that is not a dependable solution for lots of situations. Having to use ND filters a lot of the time is not ideal. But I guess it is just the price yo have to pay for more of a Cine camera over a true Hybrid.

    Exposing properly with Dual ISO cameras

    Yes, but since your iris and shutter determine the look of your footage, by strictly using 400 and 3200, you're essentially locking your iris, shutter and ISOs, which will give you very little freedom in how to adjust your exposure - either NDs or lights. Then if you don't have a controlled environment, you're limited to NDs only. I much prefer to use the ISO to help me expose, rather then limit my shots more than they need to be.

    GH5 autofocus issue

    ok... maybe an issue from my lens because it is not weather sealed and had condensation...

    Major Sony update for A9, A7 line

    Very nice! Hopefully it motivates everyone else to follow suit. I knew this was coming this year. Canon may lose its number 1 auto focus title. Looks like the A7RIII and A7III won't see the update though.

    GH5 autofocus issue

    Looks normal to me, but I don't have much experience with GH5 Auto focus.

    Exposing properly with Dual ISO cameras

    It seems like setting ISO to 400 or 3200 and ETTR would be the easiest way to get the same results as using "high ISO for bright scenes" and "low ISO for dark scenes".

    yes, let me send you this, @thebrothersthre3 There you go: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ey2FpBkxNmY as you can see, auto-focus is jittering

    Have any video you could show us?

    What do you think about colour grading?

    Yeah the Canon 24-70 plus Canon C100 MK2 would be a damn good combo. Its a tempting setup for me. IS is a big benefit for me if I switched to Canon, most Fuji lenses don't have IS and of course vintage lenses don't either. That said for most projects I don't need IS or IBIS. Gimbals for moving shots or just a good old tripod work for 90% of things. Its that 10% that messes everything up 😂

    User LUT monitor SWIT CM-55C

    You can use LUTCalc to generate 17^3 LUT sets with exposure compensation directly. Or Photoshop CC can downconvert LUTs to various resolution.

    Very much so. Thank you for helping out man.

    Sony E mount to Nikon Z mount adapter

    Its the gateway aspect of the E mount that appeals. Leaving aside the additional similar options the E mount range offers to Nikon users, having access to the Batis range no longer means you have to get a Sony body to have Zeiss lenses with AF. The adapter itself is only a few mm deep anyway so if you put the EF lens adapter on it its a negligible difference between putting Nikon's FTZ adapter on the camera really. Being able to also use the TechArt PRO opens up a lot of possibilities for fast, affordable and very compact full frame M mount lenses from Voigtlander and 7Artisans (28mm f1.4 and 50mm f1.1 are less than £650 for the PAIR!) and of course gives them AF, again for similar overall footprint than the FTZ adapter. So whilst there is obviously a ton of wonderful Nikon glass out there it is worth bearing in mind that only 4 Nikon lenses will go directly on these cameras without an adapter and it is going to take them a long time before the majority of their most renowned ones are available in the native mount. Funnily enough, despite being so heavily invested in the Nikon system, its actually only the availability of this adapter thats slightly enthused me about buying one of the Z series !

    What do you think about colour grading?

    Along with the Nikkor 35mm 1.4, and Canon 28mm 1.8, the Minolta 35mm 1.8 is one of my favorite lenses I’ve ever used. Obviously when I switched to the 5D3, my Minolta lenses didn’t adapt any more but I luckily found a 35mm 1.8 that was modified to the EF mount. The Sigma 18-35mm is a legendary modern lens but I find it a little boring, or should I say... a little neutral. But as a zoom lens, it’s like having 3 prime lenses in one, that are sharp as a tack... so I get the appeal. I used to have the Canon 24-70mm f/4 and it was an amazing lens... SHARP wide open with amazing image stabilization... seriously as good as IBIS on the GX85. At f/4, unfortunately the speed was just too slow for my filming style. But the convenience of a zoom is a bonus. I miss it a lot when I am out shooting. Unfortunately for FF, I believe only Sigma makes a fast zoom, the 24-35mm but that is just a bit too limiting, especially since it doesn’t have IS.

    GH5 autofocus issue

    Hi guys, since I went outside during cold weather, my focus is lagging a lot, do you think actually because of my settings? I put +3 for sensitivity and +3 for speed

    What do you think about colour grading?

    I do have the 35mm 1.8, it is exceptional wide open. The 50mm 1.4 is nice too though it doesn't really catch up to the 35 until you get to 2.8. I used to use Nikon AI-s lenses, but I do like Minolta better. I have heard they can be used on medium format cameras, which is also pretty cool. I'll check out that guide on Reduser. 58mm 1.2 sounds cool, though I am sure its quite expensive lol. Waiting to get a deal on a metabones speedbooster for it, though stil debating if I'll stay with Fuji or not. Color was another reason I went with one brand as I have noticed a color shift when I formally mixed lenses a lot. Still trying to unload my Sigma 18-35, was debating going all Sigma, but I like the vintage look. The Sigma is amazingly sharp at 1.8 though. I was also thinking about switching completely to Canon lenses, easy to find speedboosters for them as well.

    What do you think about colour grading?

    I fricken adore Minolta lenses. If you want to get caught up in some good reading, there’s a Rokkor guide on the REDuser forum that is amazing. One piece of advice for vintage lenses... save the money and buy the better, faster glass. Minolta has some serious legendary glass. The 58mm 1.2 and the 35mm 1.8 and the 28mm f/2 are pieces of mechanical art. On the cheaper end, the 50mm 1.4 PG is also an amazing lens. On the really cheap side, the MD 50mm f/2 is pretty damn good as well. As far as Canon lenses... I am actually pleasantly surprised by them. The 28mm 1.8 and 85mm 1.8 are sleeper lenses in my opinion. I could film an entire movie with those two lenses and if I wasn’t obsessed with lenses, I’d be completely content with just those. The manual focus of USM lenses aren’t as bad as I thought they would be either. And once I get a couple of these projects done, I may just sell off most of my lenses and keep the Canon lenses. Right now I have about 3 sets of lenses and a couple odd balls that I really like... this time next year, I’ll whittle away at least one set and it won’t be the Canon glass.

    Looks like RF-E is being considered after all.
