    my first short

    Fabulous. I thought some of the angles and composition were superb. I’m not sure I am clever enough to follow the story but thoroughly enjoyable. Indeed, inspirational!
  3. I had a Z7 for 10 days and returned it. AF-C auto focus in stills mode was too bad. Color in video was good but did not find it special (tendency towards Yellow). EVF and back screen quality are great. The camera has some usability limitations in Video mode, missing some practical tools for video work. I am a hybrid shooter so hated the fact that you cannot switch to M video mode directly from P/A/S modes in stills, you always have to dial first to M stills then switch to video. In other cameras, no matter in what stills mode you are, you can switch directly to M video.
  4. I was recently a part of making a short movie, and the camera combination used, i thought might interest someone here. Also there might be someone thinking if the FS700 still works today, as i myself did. The film can be seen here (there are no subtitles, but the story is about a woman that gets stopped in the street by the police, because of the hoodie she is wearing. It's at satire on laws currently being implemented i Denmark) https://www.ekkofilm.dk/shortlist/film/trojen/ For the dialogue parts, we were cutting between a Gh5 and a sony FS700. It worked out great I think, all though it was difficult to get the colors to match. We were also filming outside, so that did not help, with the ever changing sun clouds. For lenses, we used a Canon 24-70 2.8 (with focal reducer) on the GH5, and a Tamron 17-50 2.8 on the FS700. Can you tell which is which? camera A camera B I would not use this camera combo for anything that should be matched quickly, but if you have the time, the FS700 files in 10 bit prores slog and the GH5 10 bit vlog files, were super great to work with. The result is not perfect, but we like it. I love both cameras, and I am amazed how great the FS700 and the odyssey 7q are! We were afraid we would have to change batteries all the time, but big NP-F batteries lastede around 2 hours each (1 in the cam that lasted longer and 1 in the odyssey 7q). Mounted on a shoulder rig, the FS700 is also pretty comfortable, in comparison with for instance, an URSA Mini and weighs about the same, with the odyssey. The buttons are a pain to reach though. For those interested, the dialogue was recorded with at Røde NTG1 shotgun mic to a Tascam 60d. Here are some other shots from the film. (if there is banding in the footage where you see it, it is jpeg/web compression, it is not in the final video file.)
  5. The Art of Photography uses the copilot... Looks like the best option atm for iPad/Luma fusion
  6. The photo you linked to has BAD Sony color foundation going on. Un-natural yellow base tone with magenta over the top. Sony has missed the base foundation that is needed and what we see naturally. And it's not just skin tones but all Sony color tends to be off. How many people have to remind you of the Atomos Ninja and the controls you gain back by using it with the Z6? That's why they spent the time to get it right with Atomos. I guess I already used the Z6 over the GH5 on a 3 day video production along side the C300. You keep claiming the GH5 is better then the Z6 or real professional would pick the GH5 over the Z6 but I bet you don't even own a GH5 either. Professional videographers aren't using the GH5 as their main camera on production and never have. Ever. The GH5 failed to capture that market. Maybe shooting the local donut shop with the GH5 but not serious work. If people were using the GH5 you would be posting video non stop. And did you say the Z6 has bad CS? We all know how off color on the GH5 can be so much so that the S1 is showing GH5 owners real color. I mentioned the S1 because you're already biased towards the Z6 and the S1 is in the Lumix family. The S1 also shares the Z6 CS from footage I've seen. And if we are are in the videographers world how come you seem to forget images quality is still king. I know you keep talking about features but image quality is what people see and respond too.
  7. Yeah, I've looked longingly at the Gnarbox and the newer version is still not out so I don't know whether that will be the solution. I'm rather thinking now that I might just roll my own as there are a few SBCs now with multi USB 3 ports, gig ethernet that can run as portable file servers that would suit for what I need. With regard to the Lacie, not sure whether they've updated the firmware but it does work with the iPad. I'm also not entirely sure whether the link with DJI is just a branding thing as the app does just seem to present it as it would any other file system rather than something specific to DJI format files for viewing and copying.
  8. I am not trolling shit. If you are going to try and make a living with any of the newer Mirrorless cameras the Nikon Z6 would be on the bottom of the pile. It is the worse on all of them for features you need to get the job done. And I would argue it also has the worse CS. Sure the 4K crop on the EOS-R is the pits, but it has great AF, CS, and everything in camera you need tool wise. Someone always has to be last and the Nikon is it simple as that. There isn't a person on here but, you know who, is going to use the Z6 over the GH5 if you have an important, only one chance in hell to do it, video shoot. Will it get better, sure it will, but as of now it is not repeatable reliable. Is it a crappy camera, heck no, but it is still last.
  9. Today
  10. Are you serious? The GH5 is a specs camera and has color issues and sensor readout issues when panning. You can keep all the specs and feature that you bought with that micro 4/3 compressed footage all day long. I know what the Z6 can do with 8-bit full frame readout at 144Mbps right now. Do you own the Z6? No. Then why are you so opinionated about a camera you don't own or tried? If the GH5 is all that great then why are you even on here defending it? Show your GH5 footage then and shut everyone up. Even Panasonic jump to full frame and the S1 like the Z6 blows the GH5 out of the water for image quality. Good luck taking decent stills with he GH5 hybrid camera because we al know how those images will look. The promised eye AF firmware update is not delayed or behind so not sure what your point is. The Z6 is full frame brother so stay in FX and not DX mode. I'm not talking about rolling shutter but sensor readout and how the GH5 process that data or how poorly it does that. What's the deal with panning stutter on the GH5? Low light is also terrible on the GH5 so much so that Panasonic had to introduce the Gh5s. That says it all about the GH5.
  11. The Wensleydale heated on toast as a special winter luncheon treat. Goes rather well with fruit cake too. The others with pears and celery after dinner - best with a fine brandy.. But I also still remember trying to get the foil off the cheese triangles so don’t think I’m pretentious!!! We’ve given up cow’s milk. Not for any diagnosed intolerance or allergy but, golly, we feel so much better! Using oat milk as a substitute. Cow’s is convenient and sort of does everything adequately well - the 8 bit equivalent. Going into oat (or similar) substitutes is like dining in 12 bit raw.
  12. Ha now you know how we feel! And this is mild compared to any Canon thread.. CaNikon are the historical big dogs so they always have it tougher but people have to realise they are also newcomers to FF mirrorless. Both have done pretty well IMO for first effort cameras. Nikon put in more effort than Canon on the hardware side but kinda dropped the ball on a few critical features. Good news is that can be dealt with in firmware upgrades if users are vocal enough about it. Nikon doesn't really have a video department and videographers are a tiny percentage of their customers but hopefully, word will get back to them. I have a soft spot for Nikon myself, shot with them way longer than Canon. But lack of an upgrade path and slow adaptation to video kinda forced me out. I still think there is strong potential for Z series but Nikon has to be very careful not to screw up, they made some poor decisions in the past that cost them a lot. Alongside Fuji they are in a unique position to innovate with no cine line to protect, but its also a double-edged sword as far as R&D and experience.
  13. ok thats what i thought 😂 seriously tho, i looked up food allergies in trying to combat all this and.... thats not what this is (thank god lol, lactose intolerance might push me over the edge)
  14. Yeah, I understood you. IIRC more than half the people on earth are lactose intolerant, and even for those that are, cows milk isn't the most widely consumed animal milk It's a big world out there... 😆😆😆
  15. I am not optimistic for the DJI CoPilot. I am rather bias as I have wasted quite a lot of dosh trying to get an ipad pro workflow to work - Gnarbox anyone? - without success. The LaCie website says that the usb-c iipad pro is not supported. And when it is supported.... 1. I rather bet it will only let you 'see' your footage on the ipad rather than transfer and edit and 2. will it support raw photos as well as say Sony raws as well as video from non DJI cameras??.....
  16. kye

    my first short

    Actually, yes - I really liked this too - I forgot to comment on it. The strange ringing you get from loud sounds was done perfectly - "sound as headspace" was nailed completely!
  17. Worse..... Perhaps read what I wrote more literally
  18. does it make her sniffly and sneezy??? 😫

    Bravo. And a good reminder to everyone about how much sound design brings to the party. And well done on casting @webrunner5 in it too
  21. Bess and Jess. My GF can't even handle too much milk in her cup of coffee. Otherwise her whole day turns to shit. Meanwhile here I am drinking more than a half gallon of milk in a single morning.
  22. If a production only needs 1080 (and the camera isn't damaged) then a C300mk1 could be a perfectly reasonable and smart choice for the shoot.

    my first short

    man... thank you so much for saying that my whole idea was ~dark and low contrast, really saturated~ and my 7GB prores render looks GREAT...! but it gets m u r d e r e d on youtube. this is not the best quality upload due to this file in particular, but i did tests and......... its rough on mobile its exponentially worse. 1080p on the youtube app is not equal to 1080p desktop, and its PARTICULARLY destructive to all the ~pretty dark shots~ that i actually succeeded in making, *not that you can tell* from this upload~! tbh that was sooo frustrating to me, thats a big part of why i was like "i haveta take a lil break from this" 😂 anyway, thats amazin that you totally saw what i was goin for thru it all... makes my day! tysm edit: see, lookit this low res png screen grab on tumblr... STILL SOOOoooooo much better smh. i mean the ridiculous banding isnt there u kno

    my first short

    I also really like the "dark" shots (like 1.44). We're always talking about dynamic range, and IQ etc etc, but sometimes it's all in the shadows. In the murky bits. Makes you look harder. Good stuff.
  25. Webrunner5 is basically trolling the thread right now. He doesn’t own the Z 6 neither does he have any genuine interest in owning one. It’s just a matter of making the thread turn according to his pipe and instead of having a constructive and positive dialogue it becomes a meaningless back and forth with someone who doesn’t even own the camera. Its jonpais all over again. I don’t like Sony but I don’t continuously bait the Sony threads. Poor Canon users have had a lot of it lately and I feel for them. Can’t write anything positive without ten people showing up screaming “crop”.
  26. They were all recorded in Film mode and then converted to Rec. 709.
