  1. Past hour
  2. Not sure what gave you that idea. You can't see the camera at all behind the massive matte box. Also the use of HDMI and the fact it's launching under Lumix branding would suggest an S1 form factor. If it were a EVA1 form factor there would be an SDI cable going into that nice Zaucto EVF they are using from an SDI port on the camera.
  3. Yes sure. Tell that to the people of Michigan and those living close to the Mississippi River. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/ng-interactive/2019/may/06/cancertown-louisana-reserve-special-report
  4. Neither OIS nor IBIS give you stable images while walking handheld. You'd need a gimbal for that. While linear mode helps, focus-by-wire lenses can't match true mechanical focusing lenses for manual focusing.
  5. Hey everyone, I was hoping to get some advice - I'm toying between picking up either an x-t3 or an x-h1. I currently have an x-t2. It's by far my favourite camera to use out of everything I've ever owned, having toyed with most of the major manufacturer's systems. I thought the Fuji top-dials thing was nonsense / an unnecessary fuss until I tried it. I love that tactility. I've found pretty decent deals on both cameras that include the battery grip, at more or less the same price. I understand that in terms recording options and specs the x-t3 is much better than the x-h1, but IBIS is the one thing I wish my x-t2 had. Whilst I'd love to say I'm a film making auteur, the truth is most of it's use will be casual, walkaround stuff. I very occasionally use my camera for work (mostly studio stuff), and I plan to use it for some low-budget film making hopefully later this year. I own the fujifilm 10-24mm / 18-55mm / 55-200mm which are all stabilised. I I'm keen to get some fujifilm primes, and I love the idea of using them stabilised, hence my decision to make. I know the x-h1 can use Fuji's lenses (focus by wire) in a 'linear' mode. Does this make manual focussing comparative to focusing on conventional lenses? And is this feature in both x-h1 and x-t3? Would appreciate any opinions / steering in the right direction! Thanks!

    At first glance I thought that was some sort of Lake Placid Blue coloured fin tailed 50s car with its brake light on !
  8. GFX100 F-log sample (original file downloadable): ISO1600, 1/50, f/4 with sharpness and NR at default "0". Other than very noise blacks, image looks quite pleasing.

    Looks pretty good to me! Considering the grain from ML raw is so nice, and considering that any compressed delivery format normally kills most texture anyway, I'd say you've got a huge amount of latitude. Try pushing it in steps as far as ML will let you take it, then grade it like you would for getting levels and saturation etc right, then upload to YT as a private video and see how it turns out. In other news, here are a few test shots from my new Sun Zoom MC 70-210mm f3.8 lens. I could tell the moment that it arrived that it was a winner, and I'm sure that after I tell @BTM_Pix how much it cost then the result will be unanimous! 😆😆😆 Images from GH5 raw converted to JPG in post but otherwise untouched... Apologies for the fading light, so best to ignore slight colour changes. 70mm f3.8: 70mm F8: ~130mm f3.8 ~130mm f8 200mm f3.8 200mm f8: and a bit more graduation in DOF, with highlights off-camera.. 70mm f3.8: 70mm f8: 200mm f3.8: 200mm f8: and a few random screen grabs from this mornings game: Overall it seems like a nice lens to use, but because it's not parfocal and I'm not practiced with it, if I'm tracking action and I zoom then I lose focus and don't know which way to go to get it back. If only my eyes had phase detect and weren't limited to contrast detect!
  10. Hi. Why not upscale it to 8kp60 from 4kp60 then? 8kp15, is equivalent to 4kp60 in data rate, why not do that, the chip supports it in HDR? It's a shame it's not half the size, genuine 8k and a camera phone. 8kp15 is a negative as far as a feature goes. They better off do it for real, or make a $300 camera phone with it for real (and dual hot swappable storage cards, and extra definable buttons). Now, unfortunately it appears that the 855 video section is too weak for this (but why limit the resolution)? But the chipset can ingress 48mp at 30 fps from a sensor, and maybe a 14 bit interface (though the consumer high res sensor usually tops out at 8-12 bit depth at those resolutions in highest video rate). Now flip that around, that's 48fps at 30mp, so doing an Arri, and close enough upscaled to 8kp50. As it can ingress that pixel rate, it likely also debayers it. Cineform is now open source, but Bayer version requires a user license. By splitting the processing up between the hardware encoder, GPU, CPU and DSP you could encode 8kp50 4:2:2 Cineform, preserve the Bayer values in it like blackmagic raw does, and output to a USBC or wifi ssd. However, there maybe a simpler way. You could use JPEG, JPEG xr or JPEG xl (if functions supported or if programming can be used to make up for missing functionality) and heif. Prores is doable. The old iOS app vizzygig used to use the still camera hardware to take video at 4k and higher, as a series of photos, this started when the iPhone was limited to fullhd video, in 4k days it was a lot higher than 4k. But, you could try this with any 855 camera phone with a suitable sensor. The interesting thing is that even the 835/845 were meant to connect to 32mp sensors. Could the cheaper 48mp sensor phones actually do 8k? Samsung has an 8k capable processor. Ironically their sensor isn't. But they have a 64mp sensor coming, with around 16 stops HDR. The funny thing is, when asking a sales person if they were getting the phone, they brought up a page with might have listed a Samsung processor. I sure hope there are two versions, and the international one is actual 8k. But, it well likely be a mistake.
  11. While Tony may be one of the biggest click bait artists in the business, probably uses more makeup and grooming products than his wife and all the ladies in that part of the world (for the longest I thought that was his sister and they were competing on beauty products), is highly confused about which of his conspiracy theories to believe himself etc, one has to give it to him, the guy is truly entertaining. He couldn't crack a joke, even if the Cohen brothers wrote and shot episodes for him, but his theories are entertaining. He does raise some valid points every once in a while, but he is probably more in love with himself talking in the mirror, than doing anything truly well researched. Regardless, he does entertain.
  12. Because it is a STUDIO camera. They clue is literally in its name...
  13. the camera is for pro market so the mount is not really an issue. it's like saying in the old days the pentax 6x7 will never sell because of it's specific mount. same for most mf. he probably said in an episode that ff is the way to go and M43 is dead, that is why the bmcc4k isn't selling 😀 these guys just don't know what to do and say to get an audience and a new youtube episode anyway, some brands don't share the same opinion https://www.fujirumors.com/alpa-announces-a-new-range-of-products-for-fujifilm-gfx-100/

  15. Unfortunately, it appears not. I just changed it from 1->2 to 2->1 and saved it to C2, turned camera off then on again, and now C1, C2, and C3 are set to 2->1. I did the opposite and they all changed back to 1->2, so it looks like that setting is global, not part of the custom profiles.

    Sports videography

    New setup went well today. I'm not sure I would change anything, at least based on todays shoot. The worst part about the shoot today was that I forgot to take my hat! The setup consists of: GH5 Rode VMP+ Sun 70-210 f3.8 lens (sample images to come) cheap ebay monopod (modified with the head removed) The mic is mounted on the side and forward which pushes the camera back from the monopod allowing easy access to the viewfinder. It's a cheap ebay flash adapter like below, with the camera QR plate on one end, a cold shoe adapter on the other for the mic, and the monopod in the centre mount: The tripod is modified with the head completely removed and a screw installed in the 'cap' that used to support the head. It's not quite straight but, oh well, whatever! The screw is actually the screw part from one of these, which I used epoxy glue to hold in place, and the flat part meant for the cold shoe provides a strong connection for the whole thing. I still have a niggling want for a lens longer than 200mm, maybe a 100-400 zoom, but there don't seem to be any cheap fully manual ones around. The players at the other end of the field are pretty small in the frame even at 210mm (420mm equivalent).
  17. What's the unemployment rate in the U.S.A right now? It's 3.6% show us the chart for this going back to 2010.
  18. Thanks, Mercer, the Eos m raw can really shine if the RAW is manipulated properly, i'm still learning anyway. I'm really impressed with the bmpcc original as well. The proress HQ looks very close to RAW, and the RAW, when upscaled to 4K resolution in Davinci Resolve, looks quite close to the BMPCC 4K. Cheers!
  19. There are lots of tiny cameras that can deliver professional or semi-professional images, but they still stop short of being an all-in-one solution that offers acceptable image quality, stabilisation, and audio quality. For this we still need a rig of some kind. This thread is about creating hand-held rigs that deliver: Good to very good image quality Sufficient stabilisation for hand-holding (movement is fine, but it can't be too jittery) Good to very good sound quality that is directional (or at least separates the subject from the background) Fits in a pocket Minimal time to start recording (have little to no setup time) I'm building a rig around my new Sony X3000, but this thread could easily apply to anyone using a GoPro, DJI Osmo Action, or RX0, would also extend to point-and-shoot cameras, and even the smallest mirrorless cameras if the lens they choose is small enough (lots of pancake lenses would be borderline pocketable). These might be an A-cam rig for vloggers, travel film-makers, backpackers, minimalists, or (like me) a B-cam setup for use in conjunction with a larger more complicated rig. We've touched on these topics before, @Don Kotlos shared this great (borderline pocketable) example: I mucked around with my GF3 (which lacks the required audio quality, or image quality): and people are out there taking tiny cameras and making rigs that are 10x the size of the camera: I'm still waiting for items to arrive, but I'm starting with the X3000, Rode Videomicro, an ebay microphone windsock which will help with wind noise but will also be a shock-mount, but have more bits on order, so updates to follow. Who else here is pushing the limits of quality vs size?
  20. It seems to be more front to back than side to side. Anyone else think that, or do I need a better crystal ball?
  21. Love what you’re doing with the EOS-M, zeek! The Milvus/Samyang comparison was great. I look forward to your BMPCC videos!!
  22. Whatever it is, sure doesn't look very large. Plus it's on a tripod... so no IBIS? It must be the sensor that is game changing... and I can only imagine if they are making this much fuss, it's not a Sony sensor.
  23. Well, I'd add then, no much different than Trumpists' propaganda to say the least... more prone to call it 'fake news' instead LOL when the numbers show a different reality as matter of fact:
  24. So says you... with zero proof to back your claim... so it's true, because you said it is? We like clean air and water as much a you do. We have cleaner modern techniques to produce goods here. And until goods are "obsolete", the factories and jobs that produce them will remain neccessary. Things are booming here. The water is clean and the air is fresh. I'm afraid you have been greatly misinformed.
