    Jittery Pans with a6500 / a6300

    I recall some issues that Dave Dugdale had with the a6xxx cameras that looked like IBIS and IS fighting each other. I don't recall if it ever got resolved, but I think that the only way to work out what is going on is to do a logical evaluation through testing. Shoot a shot with everything plain settings and verify that you can get a smooth pan like that. After you've established a baseline start adding in the settings you use one by one and see which one 'creates' the problem. Then leave that setting on and start reverting the previously adjusted settings back to your baseline and see if it comes good again, and if so then it will be a combination of multiple settings.

    the OP was after cheap solutions 100-150 euros, you can get a decent lav for that but not a wireless system that's worth using

    Wired is ultimately better, but the convenience of wireless trumps it if you are shooting and recording yourself. Mic up the talent, stick the transmitter in his/her pocket, and get on with the million and one other things you have to take care of. Just do everybody a favour and take off the headphones if they pop to the loo!!! Can see the merits of wired too though. It's a close call.

    Doesn't make any sense to me for the reasons I listed, have been burnt more than once from drop outs and interference with 'quality' wireless systems.If it's a sit down talking heads then wired is better quality and less risk and cheaper. What's not to like

    Atomos Ninja V - Problem with Input Gamma?

    I wonder why they do that? That's what it looks like to me, blacks are crushed but can be drawn out later and still, it's where I'd have taken the log footage anyway. Does this mean it doesn't really record log footage? It's pretty confusing..

    I am leaving Vimeo over their scandalous DMCA policy

    So. Things sorted out. The reason for the strikes being that the label - one of the biggest on the planet - had an internal mixup of who directed the spot. So in about 72h he will have his vimeo account online again. So no. the agent didn't do anything wrong or stole anything. But for music videos going forward he needs to have the director double check the credentials with the label and even written permissions just to be safe. It is important to remember that just because you are a big company basically with license to bully it doesn't necessarily mean that you are right. And when you do mess up your lack of carefulness has consequences that hurt people. I have no issue with bots scanning through videos to flag for potential copyright infringers as long as it is used as an internal tool and not as a mechanism that automatically puts all the work on the 'innocent until the opposite is proven's shoulder to clear her or himself. Making a takedown notice you have to be sure beyond doubt that you actually have a case. Maybe the (in this case US law) law says something different? Does anybody know how explicit the paragraph in the DMCA is regarding wrongful / headless / loose blacklisting ? - so the rights-holders need to be just as sure in their case as the accused when countering their claim ? Oh well. stopping my mini ranting. I still do like vimeo's service. just not this part of it.

    I'm yet to make the move, but I think I'll have to eventually. Slightly OT, but don't they have new OS's free for a certain period of time and after that you have to pay for the upgrade? I think I had to pay for one when the version I was running didn't support the software I wanted to run and the only free version was the one that had buggy wifi so I paid to get the second newest version.

    Eyemore S1 video camera Review

    Absolutely! Think of all the awful products out there, and take a minute to order why no reviewer has ever looked at any of them. It's simply incredible that the people who make awful products never contact reviewers, or if they do then the reviewers aren't interested, or if they are then the product gets lost in the post. That postal system must be crazy good at assessing how good products are - it's the final gatekeeper in the entire system!!

    The Aputure A.Lav sounds the best, and is the one I use myself for lots of my YT vlogs (running straight into my Panasonic G6)
  14. IronFilm

    good lavalier for gh5 interview

    It is a music video :-P There are times when wired lavs make sense (for instance I run an Aputure A.Lav straight into my G6 for my vlogs, because a) it is just for with me b) I'm lazy c) it is compact/cheap), but for most people/situations wireless makes more sense unless utterly broke.

    Every single audio person I've ever worked with has used a wired lav over wireless if possible. Higher quality recording, less chance of interference and also a lot cheaper

    What Do Y'all Think of The Kinefinity Mavo LF?

    I think many people can make the mistake of lumping all these "expensive" or "premium" cameras into one big muddled up "high end" category which they then mistakenly think is all the same tier more or less as each other. When that is not at all the case, there are many tiers located within that big muddled up lot they've mixed them up into. Keep in mind what the competition looks like where the MAVO LF is priced at. We're talking cameras like the Canon C300 mk2, Sony PMW-F5, and the RED Raven. In the professional market we're very much talking about the low/mid end segment of the market. While the Kinefinity MAVO LF is trying to promise to compete up at the levels of a Sony VENICE / Canon C700 FF / RED MONSTRO / ARRI ALEVA FF / etc, which are all placed right right at the very top top end of the market and are much much much more expensive than the MAVO LF! Thus it is understandable if there are people out there who are willing to live with some of the trade offs of a Kinefinity camera if it means they can get a "high end" camera for a "low/mid end" price. The BMPCC4K no more makes the MAVO LF (or Terra 4K) irrelevant than it makes any ARRI or RED irrelevant (or many other cameras from low to high, like a Panasonic EVA1 or Sony FS7, etc... or even the other dirt cheap cameras, like a Fujifilm X-T3 or Panasonic GH5 are still relevant cameras to consider even in a world with the BMPCC4K shipping) Why? There is tonnes of competition in the mirrorless world. The likes of Yi and others have tried. (even Samsung! And gave up) Kinefinity is smart in the niche they've targeted, nobody else is in their little small niche area of higher end but at budget prices with the exception of the URSA Mini Pro (and some past attempts from other players, like the failed AJA CION. And some possible new entrants... Z Cam might be knocking on their door in another generation or two)

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    I've heard they are just shipping replacement doors to people who have the loose ones so you don't need to ship your camera in anymore and they're easy to take off. Looking at the mechanism of mine, I'm pretty impressed with how easy they are to remove.

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    Crazy how ebay sellers make more than double profit for selling BMPCC 4K cameras and people actually buy them almost instantly. We live in an impatient world.

    I have the Sony UWP D11 and it's been working wonders for me. Upgraded from the rodelinks after a few weeks lol. @IronFilm But I'm also a big believer in audio gear. I believe I spent more on audio gear than anything else this year. A video with bad audio is a bad video, no way around it.

    Eyecome S1 does indeed have quality similar to a Panasonic, this Panasonic:

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    If you would have done that, you could have earned 33840 GBP today if you'd sold them on Ebay ! FYI if you tell me how long you have been using pro camera's, and the P4K really works for you, that is quite clear to me. Whenever I get around to buying a new cam, this will be it, unless I wait until 2021 😉 It really is a no-brainer for my situation.

    Maybe post a list of requirements that you are looking for in a camera rather than keep criticising a camera you don't own and don't intend to buy?

    I WILL be getting a Fuji X-T3!

    if you work with sliders, gimbals and other forms of stabilisation, you don't need to get the OIS lenses. If you want a zoom, I would go for the 16-55mm f/2.8, even though it has no OIS. if you are recording audio near camera, don't go for 35mm f/1.4, 18mm f/2.0, 60mm f/2.4 those are loud to focus I also wouldn't recommend 23mm f/1.4 and 56mm f/1.2 since you can hear those too. Optically even the cheaper lenses are very good, so you can't go wrong.

    What Do Y'all Think of The Kinefinity Mavo LF?

    I guess the Kinefinity Mavo LF exists at a premium cinema camera price range (especially with all necessary accessories), where users want to use a system they are familiar with, by a known corporation/ manufacturers, something that has a SUPERB sales and after sales network, and something that is built and works like a tank. At that price range, newer entrants are a disadvantage, especially if their price is not a fraction of the established lot. The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4k crashes the Cinema Camera party by offering 4k RAW and ProRes at a fraction of the cost, along with a built in (huge) LCD, and cheap memory options, and nothing extra needed to be able to use the camera (apart from a memory card and a lens). Maybe Kinefinity should have started by making a DSLR form factor 4k camera at $2k or less and taken it from there. Jim Jannard had billions to blow (along with a markwting genius brain) when he entered the Pro Cinema Camera Market), so RED cannot be compared with the smaller players. Also RED started out at a time when the Cinema Camera market was still in its infancy wrt to RAW and other standards, so it was in many ways, a level playing field.

    Anyone running Mojave?

    Right here. I've been putting it through the paces for the past 10 days with CC2019. Arrived from Mountain Lion and CC2014 with a feature doc in tow - not exactly recommended migrating big projects across in this way, but hey. Traded one set of bugs for some others, but so far it seems to be holding. I could hardly care less about new bells and whistles on Apple's side... just give me the basics, and make sure they work.
