    Im not sure many here actually shoot many weddings. In my market its laughable to think robots and fixed security cams can match what I can do with other humans. Today or anytime soon in the wedding video market.

  4. Cinematography Database YT channel spots them in BTS pics every so often, and Filmmaker IQ owns one and they're much closer to the high budget film world than most of the YT camera channels, so that's what I am basing my judgements on. Plus, you know, that most people who criticise it haven't ever seen one. I think you're right that it does have a place, my point is that that place isn't very visible from the part of the filmmaking landscape most of us occupy, and just it's hard to know how much commercial content is shot with a GH5, it's hard to know how much commercial content is shot with an XC10 because it's good enough to blend in to stuff shot on other Canon cameras. Anyway, those DPreview people... am I right? 😆😆😆

    Did a bit of redesign this week, got two pieces cut on the waterjet for testing purposes. I changed the design of the ssd holder it now sits beneath the smallrig 15mm rails surprisingly my measurements were rather accurate and all i had to do was a little sanding to made things slide together. if i had to do it again i'd made things 0 .1 mm bigger for some wiggle room. The alloy clamp required the most time, broke out the dremel for that. The alloy holder clamp is a bit tall at the moment, i made it that way as i was guessing abit at the time. The last two pics are a bit of a mock up at the moment. i actually have the original clamp holder on the back at the moment. Not sure if i will get that machined to hold a step down ring or do something different. I am however happy that more progress has been made.
  6. Sigma is very much still a family business that marches to their own beat so the continuance with the cameras is not really based on the camera's turning a profit in isolation. They are committed to Foveom because they believe it to be the best way to go not only technically but also because as they own the technology they aren't reliant on another sensor manufacturer. They also claim that making cameras helps their lens development by giving them better insight into the whole end to end process. Just as significantly though, Kazuto Yamaki, their CEO, also does it in large part as a continuing respectful tribute to his late father who started the company and who always dreamed of Sigma making its own cameras. https://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/latest/photo-news/exclusive-interview-80154

    Spent less than two minutes on google and it looks like they've got cameras built in (that security camera looking thingy on the top right): https://kimchiicecream.wordpress.com/2010/05/24/korean-wedding-hallcastle-culture-jason-when-are-you-and-julianne-getting-married-you-should-get-married/ Certainly a low budget wedding! (although I don't spot any robot cameras in that video)
  8. Hahaha. You jokes remind me of David Thorpe. What I found surprisingly was the curious reason given by Sigma. It seemed to make absolutely no sense. I will read that thread. Sigma is Panasonic's secret lens designer and manufacturer. And I am guessing, that, therefore all Leica branded Panasonic lenses have Sigma collaborating with Leica, by default. The Quattro cameras weren't really doing too well. They probably lose money on that lineup, whereas their lenses seem to sell pretty well. So they may concentrate on the lens lineup, since thay would bring in the money. Hahaha. Sigma may just increase the price of the EF/SA to-L mount converter and share a % with Leica. Hahaha. Or disable or weaken the autpgovus performance substantially. IF it releases with a converter at all, this year. Ah, all well that ends well. Hopefully. And a few agreements, whether oral or written. And more than anything else, users are dying to get the unrestricted VLog which pushes this camera head and shoulder above the competition for video.

    https://www.theverge.com/tldr/2018/2/28/17062338/ai-agent-atari-q-bert-cracked-bug-cheat That is very cool! The biggest event for me of 2017 was when AlphaGo beat the best human, very impressive.
  11. If I'm not wrong, this is literally the first real world raw video (and graded) that we see. Maybe give a little time until experienced filmmakers try it when it will be widely available. I share the Castorp's view : Nikon is not widely represented in the video world, so you do not come across the same amount of great footages provided by videographers and filmmakers, as with Sony, Canon etc. Most videos I see are graded in a way that departs a lot from what you got straight out of the camera with the flat profile. Maybe people like Matti do apply their Canon or Sony sauce to the Nikon footage... None of the attributes you both see in the videos you came across are represented in the flat profile footages I've shot since November... And no need to argue "You must be the only one than can grade I guess.", cause I grade like sh*t and am still learning 😂 Seriously, when I think of all the videos I watch from gh5, bmpcc4k, a7iii... I can see a lot of identic awful stuff that all try to mimic the same style, or use the same lut. I can not conclude that the characteristics of those cameras are responsible for these styles, because I have a lot of other great stuffs to compare with... It unfortunately is not the case with the z6. But I have personaly found some really good looking stuff that give me hope !
  12. I am facing an issue with the Yandex mail, yandex mail not working whenever I tried to send mail. Let me know if anyone has any idea regarding this issue.
  13. Yeah you see so so many massive crop ins to 320P in a 4K upload by YouTubers that I bet an 8K source would be loved by them for this. But you'd have to be super sure about your focus!
  14. Many of those productions won't be shooting with C300/C700 cameras, and thus then the likes of a P4K would be just fine. Or they'll use a mirrorless/DSLR camera. Even C300mk2/C200 shoots will probably more often use a 5Dmk(something) or an EOS R or a C100 than the XC10 as an additional camera. I've only once ever seen a XC10 on a shoot, and that was for an adverting campaign shot exclusively with a C300mk2. The XC10 was just come kind of extreme emergency camera (if the C300 completely sh*t its pants on them, which to be fair at one point it almost did.... but a reset solved that) that was owned by the agency (which they used for teeny little social media shots done by a one person crew in house, honestly any of FZ100/X70/RX10/GH5/C100/etc could probably have done the same job for them just as well/badly for them and their limited needs) and stayed in the bag the whole time. Am not denying that the XC10 has a place, it just seems to be an odd place.... which is tricky to really nail down / market to, and thus we're simply not seeing it out in use a lot.
  15. Dpreview forums are the forum version of North Korea
  16. I'm probably more trust worthy than your average bear on that topic, my degree from University is a Bachelor of Science which was packed full of physics papers. Sometimes it seems like I took almost everything they had, although I wouldn't say specifically nuclear physics was my strongest suit (although I did a few papers related to that, annoyingly NZ's only particle accelerator was at my university and it got destroyed only the year after I started there! Sigh, missed out on doing any of their experiments there with it), optoelectronics was more my focus in physics. However all of that was a long long time ago, I've forgotten now more than I remember!
  17. dpreview has zero jasper pictures so... also, many of those folks are complete idiots
  18. haha, thank you! But I'm afraid all the advice I can give is "pick good parents with hairy genes, then do nothing"
  19. DXO published their S1 score and they suggest it has the same sensor as A7III and Z6.
  20. I was wondering how good a premium optics single focus rangefinder would work on a Sankor 16C, taking lens Nikon 50mm prime. I will be using this on a Bolex H16 cine camera. I have tried the Sankor on the Bolex already and the results have be fair, but it seemed to be very hard to focus close and far...better results when the subject was further away. Would I see much of a difference if I was using a rangefinder? or do the rangefinders work better on say a DSLR camera? And also would this be correct... keep the taking lens at infinity and using the scope lens for all the focusing. If I was to use a Isco Ultra Star Cinemascope would I see a big difference between that and the Sankor 16C? and would I have a better range of focus? Any info on this would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Did they ever add support for the galaxy s10 yet? It was not working properly still last month

  23. The kind where the talent is a solo-operator who films themselves on a set and might benefit from a wide-angle lens with 8K and cropping in to make virtual camera angles. You said that the wide angle is the enemy of the sound person and boom mics, and I said that these types of videos might use a lav and the boom could be off-screen and only for ambient sounds of them doing things. It's a very specific use-case for 8K, but one that I think might be quite popular on YT as it simulates a much more complex setup.
