  1. Past hour
  2. I don't shoot these so I can't provide examples, but the suggestion of watching the news seems like a sound one. I think it's really a question about how to learn a particular genre or style, which I have some random thoughts on: Find good examples (which you're looking for) Pull them apart in every way to understand them: What angles do they use? How long are the shots? What are the shots? Talking-head, B-roll, etc What is the sound doing? How much time are people talking and how much is SFX (kind of the B-roll of audio) What is the story like? Does it represent a three-act structure? Some other structure? What similarities are there? How would you shoot such a thing? What does the set look like? What equipment is required? Camera? Audio? Rigging? Lighting? Watch BTS videos to see what people are doing. Find wide shots in the BTS, pause the video, study the frame and see what you can see. By analysing deeply you will uncover the details, by analysing many examples you will notice patterns and themes. Think of it as studying. Learning doesn't stop when you leave school, so studying and the techniques we used in school also shouldn't stop
  3. Hello: Here is a place, which can serve as a source of inspiration: Big Shorts Films. In their presentation they say: We make short social films out of real, inspiring stories. By doing so, we create a positive ripple in your mind when you watch it, which in turn travels in all directions and creates more ripples. Empowering change through storytelling, one film at a time – that’s what BIG SHORT FILMS is all about. Personally, I have found some very good and inspiring video pieces.
  4. I love the GH5 because I can shoot handheld and get a handheld but not shaky look, like when people shoot handheld with a cinema camera that smooths movement a bit due to its weight. I worked out early on that I can't stand the aesthetic of the micro-jitters you get when shooting without IBIS or OIS or a rig, so for me it's an aesthetic choice. Considering you're enjoying your 5D+ML setup (and don't use huge rigs) I'd suggest that you don't need the IBIS in the GH5. Of course, having to rig it out completely vs the GH5 which has a screen, nice UI, buttons galore, etc is another matter. From that perspective the P4K might be the best of both worlds - not requiring a huge rig but still having BM IQ. I'm still keen to try to make the P4K match the older BM cameras in post-production. If anyone has the ability to film some useful test footage with the P4K and an older BM camera and can upload it then I'll put in some serious work to see if we can match the old aesthetic from the new camera. My theory is that we should be able to, because going from more resolution to less is possible, and having good bit-depth should be sufficient to grade and match colours etc. Thread is here: I don't have a BM camera of any kind, but if I can work out how to make the P4K have the magic of older BM cameras then I think I will learn a bunch trying to figure it out, and I'll get all kinds of interesting techniques to use with my GH5 footage, so I'm definitely up for it. I feel your pain. I also shoot my family a lot when we travel in privately controlled venues like skating rinks, museums, art galleries, parks, water parks, etc where the normal rules about the right to film in public don't apply. This is why I'm trying to keep my setups to be as minimal as possible. I think it's having a microphone, and having it look big and complicated that are the issues. Just wait for 8K - we'll be writing essays!!
  5. Yes I understood you. I can imagine that the logic behind saying that is that the detail is on LF levels, but then my nikon d800 is a medium format camera, neither is true. Anyway, with a proper speedbooster and mamiya rz67 glass (which I personally love because of the smooth look it gives) would be my final destination camera wise, except the part where it only records 11bit and has no raw codec.
  6. Today
  7. The P4K is great and I love the footage. You didn't read my comment that old timer cine guys don't buy into new gear like the P4K. That's the reason the P4K won't be used.
  8. hi thx for help, your comment seems similar but unfortunately I didn't understand what did you wants to suggest me. I don't uderstand how something that passionate and interest me can be a start for a project. can you give me an example please?
  9. I agree completely with all of this. I haven't built my micro up to the extent of yours. (Still pressing those horrible buttons on the camera) The image with the micro and Pocket is beautiful, but when I go out to shoot, the P4k goes with me. Usability is becoming more and more important for me these days. Until I come up with that artsy project where that image of old is a must, these guys are watching over all my shelved gear. The thought of what it takes to use them and rigging them up makes me lose interest quick when deciding which cam to take.
  10. Yeah, that's not an issue in sports venues that have people in spandex throwing each other around and fans hooting and hollering🤣
  11. yeah, im sure they can get even more out of the sensor with better glass (why not?). this image is SHARP at 100%, therefore, for my needs, i could easily resample it to double the resolution, and it would be totally usable. its a TON of detail 😳
  12. Just to keep information accurate: BM didn't remove the functionality of raw or a omit a Braw panel. The raw panel is still the first pane in the Color section of Resolve. You still have full control over everything from white balance to ISO there once you select "Clip" as your option - as always. Highlight Recovery is now in the Primaries second page Like every program, as the fuctionality of the technology evolves the program evolves with it. Braw is great because it's faster and smaller than CDNG but with all of the post control.
  13. Amazing! It looks like the lens runs out of resolving power way before the sensor does. It’s still incredible, but Fuji needs better glass to match this level of sensor.
  14. my pictures are in 4k..... thats got to be worth 4 thousand words 😁
  15. We rarely find out in real time what cameras are being used on major film projects. So yeah, it takes time to hear about it. Again though, I don't think you actually care, given your overall argument is dumb when you've got Soderbergh using iPhone's to shoot multiple features in 2019. Perhaps @John Brawleycan share some info on the Pocket4K's usage, given I believe he has been using it?
  16. And no cameras are mentioned as being used in those productions. “Siberia” DP Eric Koretz used a Micro Studio Camera 4K with a Video Assist 4K, as well as DaVinci Resolve and a DaVinci Resolve Micro Panel for testing different looks on-set; You might want to read before you post. And for the 2nd time we are talking 2019 and the P4K. And nice to use the "give it time" card because we know how that works. You guys like to argue on both sides don't ya? The reason the P4K will not be used for a while is because of old timers that refuse to think out of the box. It's not the image quality of the P4K but the people in the industry that think old school and don't embrace new technology.
  17. Again, you only brought up "A-cam" in response to my original response, re: these cameras being used on professional productions. Literally no one has argued that it's being used as an A camera on projects. You're now just being willfully dishonest, adding qualifiers to your statement that weren't originally there. Given its still relatively new, and the time it takes for the information to get out, there's little info outside of what's on BMD's website, as far as the Pocket 4K is concerned. However here major productions that used the original Pocket, which was $999 (under your $1250 threshold): Don’t Breathe (2016) Jason Bourne (2016) Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) I imagine we'll see several films have been using the Pocket 4K before long. Not that any of this matters, given your arrogance and generally shitty attitude.
  18. omg theres a few stills samples on fujis page warning: LARGE jpg https://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital_cameras/gfx/fujifilm_gfx100/sample_images/img/index/ff_gfx100_001.JPG
  19. So apparently it’s officially considered large format, not medium format. But that said the image is quite lovely.
  20. Exactly. No possible to live without them, isn't it? ; ) So, why to go lower and exclude the upper? Why to ignore the most crucial clientele basis interest only to unilaterally impose some self-centered business aim or/and corporate agenda? Why to not comply the full specs, prior-advertised, launched and released as well PURCHASED CinemaDNG camera, as due? Why to not let people to keep the chance for choice and use whatever they/we want? Why to keep and extend such cut-off with the new display firmware now, practically towards a P4K Mark *Minus* II? Why such lack of respect with the customers who pay the existence of the brand, after all? Why telling us lies like we are all naive consumers with a prosumer toy in hands? Why to tell advantage in a pathetic show off presenting the whole thing as the most important invention since Steven Sasson when it's not consensual if we can all call it raw? More questions we could address here... nuff said for now though. Pictures still worth a thousand words. They speak by themselves. Useless the usual childish denial. It simply doesn't work out. E : -)
  21. There's literally an entire section of the BMD site dedicated their press releases that discuss their cameras being used on projects.
