  1. Past hour
  2. I don't have a storage of Nikon glass but Nikon was the first to the table with 10bit 4K with no crop and the IBIS was great so it worked for me. Nikon said the Z6 or Z series would not have cine features or go towards that market. But we know the Atomos take on the additional features to some degree. The Lumix Cine looks promising to bridge the gap and change old school cine ways. Why would they need a press conference if they were just moving the EVA to L mount?
  3. Trump has behaved in a racist way for a very long time. Remember the Central Park 5? As for his general opinions, those are no surprise either. He was sprouting the same kind of nonsense in the 80s.

    It could be the music, I'm very musically oriented so that's definitely a factor. I guess the other aspect is that your video had contrast between fast action and slow-motion, whereas the NFL one was all slow-motion. I'm not surprised about the degree discrimination - that's a class thing - they want someone who is "one of them" and screw talent or ability. Hiring incompetent people you went to school with is practically the theme song for the worlds elite. On the GH5 I only have HLG on the 25p mode (and the 1080p50 10-bit mode IIRC), so the 4k50 and 1080p120 are Cine-D. I'll have to play around with those profiles to see what latitude they give, and if doing things like reducing contrast will help. More homework!
  5. UK based, Japanese owned chip-designer ARM this week announced it is severing business ties with Huawei and others are following suite. Panasonic too, have announced a complete cut in the supply of unspecified components to the Chinese company. According to Nikkei Asian Review, even German chipmaker Infineon confirmed on Monday it needed to "halt American-origin shipments to Huawei to comply with U.S. law". What hope for Huawei supplier Leica? Huawei said in a statement to reporters that it valued the close relationships with partners, but recognised the intense pressure they are under as a result of 'politically motivated decisions'.

  6. There isn't a lot of love for the GH5 when compared to the older BM cameras as the 4K modes have that new/modern/digital look about them, which people often counter with vintage lenses, but the 6K modes are a different beast. I wonder how much the 6K 10-bit h265 mode improves it in the eyes of the classic BM camera fans? I'm not suggesting that it makes it Alexa territory, but my impression was that it takes it a good step in that direction?

    @kye Definitely appreciate it! I'm just a hungry 22 year old kid. Its possibly the hyped of music. Sorta the new age going forward with sports videography vs the traditional NFL films chill slow motion edit. Most people that want to work in sports have a degree so I have to work harder to stand out. A lot of pro teams and colleges teams would rather hire someone with a college degree and an average reel than someone with an excellent reel and no degree. I've found shooting HLG is fantastic for harsh mid day game lighting. (I try to avoid LOG as much as possible).

    Finally got around to watching the NFL highlights video and while I appreciate the level of skill of the camera operators, for some reason I enjoyed your reel better. I have no idea why, but just thought I'd share my impressions. You inspired me with the slow-motion shots and I shot my last couple of games in 4K50 8-bit as well as a bunch of random shots in 1080p50 10-bit and 1080p100. The Australian sun has been out in full force the last few weeks (despite it being only weeks from winter here) and those games were around midday so the light was harsh, so I'm curious about if the 10-bit will give me extra latitude in post to really push and pull the grade around. If the new Speed Warp slow-motion feature works sufficiently well I might be able to get away with 1080p50 10-bit and slowing it down to 25% so that it's simulated 100p where every second frame is AI generated. I modified my new monopod and my cheap and cheerful Sun 70-210/3.8 zoom arrived, so in combination with my new hat-compatible microphone setup I'll have an almost entirely new shooting setup this weekend. I've also been editing the footage from the Bull Ride event and discovering that I don't know what I'm doing when editing epic-action-with-slow-motion stuff, but I'm learning. Fun stuff!
  9. Since Alicia is a EVA1 user, I'm guessing they are just moving that line to l-mount instead. Seems like the most logical thing they would do. So much interesting cameras in the pipeline right now with the z-cam ff series, a7s iii and now this. This one I think will be way out of my ballpark sadly, but one can hope!
  10. Is there a new full-frame sensor available yet that will do FF 4k60/8k/anything else new?
  11. of course! *facepalm* What an amusing series of events it would be if Panasonic were the ones to release the ILC XC-15 style camera that so many were interested in! However it goes, I expect that it will be a solid product that will be put to work immediately by many working pros.

    I'm re-evaluating what my priorities are. The 6K 10-bit h265 200Mbps mode is basically unusable without proxies, but the 4K 10-bit h264 150Mbps mode is quite useable, so I'm wondering if the extra IQ benefits are worth it for what I'm trying to do. Yes, there is sharpening, but I normally output in 1080, and even if I uploaded in 4K I could just put a DLPF across it. I'm tempted to do an A/B between modes, then put them both through their paces with how I edit and see how hard it is to match the h264 image to the h265 and how much I care about the differences.
  14. If they would simply bring it like a mere add-on as predicted, no one would complain now. Wrong move. That's the whole point.
  15. From all the tests I've seen online (and I've seen a fair bit as I'm in the market and looking at both), the quality is comparable (of course the S1 has HLG etc. but ignoring that). The S1 does however really pulls ahead at high ISOs. It looks almost 2 stops better at the top end in the comparisons I've seen. I'd love to know why this is since they're using similar sensors. Perhaps it's just better/different noise reduction on the S1 but I feel there's more to it than that. Still don't know what I'm buying!
  16. Yes, his post-processing is pretty powerful. He also seemed to know a lot about lighting and what conditions he wants, which is a good start. Lots of those images would be so much less without the dramatic weather to go along with them. I would imagine that a big component of the popularity of his images is the interaction between animal and environment and especially powering on through adversity, as that's something that most people can identify with on a personal level I think! 😆😆😆

    Yeah, so I plan to get eGPU this summer. 🙃
  18. Lot of comparisons (cDNG / BRAW) here: https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=91802
  19. Its the CIESTA DSLR SLR Camera Leather Hand Grip Strap (Brown) w/ Dovetail Plate has an Arca swiss mounting plate I can recommend it I think you can find it on ebay CIESTA D-SLR RF Mirrorless Camera Genuine Leather Hand Grip Strap (GIANO BROWN) with Dovetail Plate https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00SFHKAQE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_GPC5CbWF491NR
  20. Yeah, ignore reality and pure facts because some dude had to dope out a way to tell the world the (hi)story he invented the wheel; when it was already discovered in fact much time earlier. BTW, and without artifacts, but introduced in the meantime along the new (re)discovery process. The emperor has no clothes now because of the belly button. E : -)
  21. Hi Andrew, etal, There's an interesting entry in the DC-S1 User Manual on Page 136 which lists the following information regarding 6K and 4K Photo Modes... [Rec Quality] [6K/200M/30p] [Luminance Level] [0-1023] (when 6K photo recording) [Rec Quality] [4K/150M/60p] [4K/100M/30p] [Luminance Level] [0-255] (when 4K photo recording) ...which by my reading indicates that the data rates for 6K Photo are coming in at 200Mb/[email protected] and 4K Photo at 150Mb/[email protected] and 100Mb/[email protected] Curious if this was accurate I pulled up one of my 6K Photo Pre-Burst clips in VLC and the Media Information window indicates an Input bitrate of 196452 kb/s (i.e. 196.452Mb/s) and a Stream bitrate of 192570 kb/s (192.570 Mb/s) using a "MPEG-H Part2/HEVC (H.265) (hevc)" codec employing a "Planar 4:2:0 YUV 10-bit LE" format. :) Jimmy G
  22. How does this compare to the Z6 ?
  23. You might be able to get a good deal on the 'bay if you're a little patient. I just won an auction on the Micro WITH an Olympus 17mm 1.8 bundled for $555, and I immediately resold the lens for $250 and used that to put together a solid rig (Smallrig cage/monitor mount, wooden rosette handle, NP-F bridge with NP-F batteries) that makes it very functional and usable. It's like a little baby Red camera now.
  24. Hi everybody! last thing I publish with GH5 Alexa. https://youtu.be/mFdDYp4pgrU
  25. GH5s with IBIS and raw output, PLUS the full version of V-Log. That's all I ask!
  26. can you tell me what hand strap this is? thanks!
  27. The first company that gives me a Full Frame sensor in a camera with built in ND, XLR, and a good codec (10-bit 4:2:2) will get my money. The EVA-1 in L-mount with a full frame sensor would be awesome. The EOS mount on the EVA-1 (without the magic Canon AF) killed the camera for me. Also, never bet against Sony. The FS5 and the FS5 II both have had huge price drops recently. Would love to see a FS5 Mark III with the sensor from the A7III and their Venice colour. Hell even a FS5 with 10-bit and 4K 60p would win me over.
