  2. I can see a/the use case. When filming in F-Log, the minimum ISO is 640 - that's a lot of light going in. So my X-T3 was even overexposing at f2.8 when I was shooting an interview indoors using a pretty basic soft box with a giant single compact fluorescent bulb. In that setting the X-T3 was the B camera to my 5D3 shooting at ISO 200. I couldn't turn down that particular light even if I wanted to, and I didn't want to stop down the X-T3 and lose the blur of my background. I could see getting an internal ND filter that makes the two cameras "match" in terms of light-gathering ability at f2.8 ISO 640 vs ISO 200 on the Canon, especially if it's optically superior to using on-the-front filters. What would you do in a case like the picture below? 1) Use less light? 2) Switch the X-T3 out of F-Log and use another profile? 3) Use an internal (or external) ND filter? 4) Stop down from f2.8? Such trade-offs! Wow.
  3. The Sony FS700 is becoming dirt cheap, very tempting, it is the biggest factor stopping me buying another Sony PMW-F3! Because a FS700 is only a little more. But the biggest factor stopping me buying a FS700? (aside from my realization that I don't *need* one, I just "want" it) That the FS5 has been becoming so cheap lately! If it just drops a little bit lower.... As ergonomically the FS5 is a big big leap forward over the FS700, and its internal codec is much better as well.

  5. Fujifilm X-T20 24.3MP Mirrorless Digital Camera - On Ebay Silver Price: $399.99 Megapixels: 24.3 MP Model:x-t20 Type: Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Brand: Fujifilm Color: Silver Series: x-t20 Features: Body only
  6. Just to note or remind: in case of additional (and crucial) highlithts recovery possibility (that thebrothersthre3 mentioned in post) there's no need for examples: with RAW you can do it on rec.709 timeline, with ProRes you can't. As simple scenario, shot same scene with both, intentionally making clipped highlights. With ProRes you can't bring them back. With CDNG do such settings in Resolve CameraRaw menu Decode Using: Clip WB: As Shot Color Space: Rec.709 Gamma: Gamma 2.4 ... and picks of highlights are coming back from void (and such view has metaphysical impact on me), so you can further mold distribution of DR as you wish.
  7. anyone knows this guy ? https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCty7zz6T5Ge5drWlktYPSlw/videos is he any good for grading tuts ?
  8. Can you post some side by side examples as this has not been my experience unless the Resolve has misinterpreted ProRes as Video range and clipped the highlights. Can you post some side by side examples of this as I've not seen it in my tests.
  9. Huh? What "panning stutter"? Probably operator error. And what is with everyone's need to shoot at a billion ISO? Try shooting with a RED or ARRI.... then you'll realize MFT can perform just fine in lowlight relatively speaking!
  10. The Z6 I've got on order at work should be here this week. I'll be happy to report back what I notice between it and the GH5 I use for videos. The Z6 will be my new primary hybrid shooter, I expect the GH5 to be my preferred video shooter. I'm really curious to see how the Z6 grades against the GH5, I've had few issues taking care of mixed lighting issues with the GH5's 8 bit. Anything that is too much of an issue usually results in the dust being wiped off the 5D and bringing in some ML RAW.

    Rumor is that the PL 10-25mm f1.7 is going to be released at $2500. Which is....kinda unfortunate. $1800-2000 and I would consider it. The P4K shots were tasty.
  12. Nice work, Kaylee! I recognize my neighborhood in there. You live here too? I like the compositions and also appreciate the color.

    Here are some of my photos taken on my T2i with the Edmika EF mount FD 35-105mm (best photos so far). https://edmika.com/product/fdn-35-105-3-5/

    You made an excellent short film and I liked it.

    Your framing/composition, that is, your directing work is WELL above the average, you're an artist, girl, I believe we are all proud of you : ) My hat! Your movie deserves much more than YT, go to arthouse film festival circuit, you're giving new pictures and sounds (with such finest sound design) to the world. Credits apply BTW, the crew is not irrelevant at all when we watch something of this caliber : -) I imagine you have now a lot of people either trying to date you : D or be somehow doing anything to be connected with you. You are far to be just another anonymous camper here or anywhere else (E ; -)

    Great stuff. When I was young people would have said it was "Groovy". Now I call it pretty Awesome. 😀
  18. This is more popular than you'd imagine, although different people see this to varying degrees too. I recently noticed a shot with a low shutter angle in Peaky Blinders which is a very high production-value show, so although I have no idea what caused them to do that, it was even present there. I'm not sure how much this will help you though, as changing light conditions will still necessitate either AWB, or worse, WB corrections in post.
  19. It is, but you have to be careful - once you get used to it then it's hard to go back!!

    Now are those photos or frame grabs? They are certainly sharp enough for the price of the lens. Really nice.
  21. We gonna hear Andrew chime in on this sometime soon? I know he did a blog write-up about it with a pre-release model
  22. Okay, this is my guess on how a camera works: We all see light and color as it reflects and refracts. The light our camera sees is from the glass that it is refracted from through the several glass elements measured in the various sizes. Light then strikes a sensor that captures the light elements then it scans the light elements. Electricity passing through the camera from the battery gives the camera the ability to encode this striked light. The striked light then goes through several variations of software code and several variations of color depending on the technology and software of the camera. The light produces an image that is then stored in many variations of codes written on the material of the circuit board inside an SD card if there is too much stuff written on the material you can not take any more images. After the storage, the image is shown on the camera's screen which is there because of many signals of the leds of that screen. How you determine how much light or how much less light is through the ISO, shutter speed, and Aperture in this process.

  24. I didn't quite realize how small Prores RAW files can be. I think being able to do 12bit 4k on a full frame camera is really amazing. Just realized the Prores RAW also works with the old FS5, which are going for like $2000ish on ebay. Those can do up to 4k 120 in Prores RAW😮
  25. Here's an updated Z6 - 8 bit footage. Created a LUT'' in Resolve and tweaked again in FCP.
  26. Im thinking a couple of these for power at the moment, they are tiny and can charge via Usb-C so no need to bring an additional charger https://www.prolightdirect.co.uk/product/50wh-nano-one-v-mount-battery/
