  1. Past hour
  2. I didn't say the Z6 looked like Canon or the Venice. I also didn't compare the Z6 to a cine camera yet. I'm also not going by footage straight out of the camera either. Nikon colors are better then any Sony A7??? series camera or A9 camera. The Z6 has very a very clean color system and this is based on my experience next to the FS7 and test I've done.
  3. I have the Z6 and as other stated the blacks are not crushed at all on the Z6. Everything is recoverable. I will post sample footage from test I did yesterday that proves this as a fact. Nikon does give the user more dark shadow area out of the gate in photo and video. I didn't raise the exposure in my test but it also didn't matter if you did over expose the shot. I did find out that the image comes out pushed to the lighter side then what you see on thru the view finder or back panel. The issue you are seeing (like the S1) is that Nikon's secret sauce settings are not anywhere close to a flat profile and they follow there still image look. So based on my test you have to shoot with the flat profile and the -2 contrast and -2 brightness and 0 sharpness. Again the shadow / crushed blacks have every single bit of data in them and are not baked into he footage. Even when I shot closer to standard or even auto highlights and crushed blacks were recoverable meaning I lowered the highlight and raised the shadows and used mid tone to balance the shot. My conclusion is you have to treat the Z6 like the FS7 cine camera and almost under expose your look, almost, more then you think and more then the viewfinder is showing you.

    Davinci Resolve 16

    you can install both my issue is that 16 crashes right from the start on my pc 😮
  5. I know about offer - but I just supposed that noble counter offer was: post of CEO or nothing, because they didn't choose right, as through all history all Canon-ized smart asses... so to say while mr webrunner5 is still awake to quickly correct me in my indian-american try.
  6. I spotted it here but not tested it myself yet https://forums.luma-touch.com/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=7539
  7. Oh bullshit. The new Sony Venice CS is one of the best on the market now. It looks more Canon than Canon is. You are just talking out of your ass now. And the new Nikons have the worse out now. Fuji and Canon makes the new Nikon CS look like Hammered Dog Shit. And I liked Nikon until this turkey landed. I even have a Nikon DSLR. They need their ass beat. They must have hired the 3 Blind Mice for this new CS.
  8. Thanks Malik. It's a rare gem that Bolex. Hope you find one.
  9. The C200 can export a 10bit 2K Raw signal through the SDI.
  10. Today
  11. Well if you have crushed blacks, like all of it seems to be, you have really no data in there to recover. Sure you can lighten it up , but there will be little to no detail left to see the Gradients that should have been there. There is no free lunch. If you could just do that with raising the shadows up later then why even bother with any exposure, just point and shoot, fix in Post. Same goes for blowing out the highs. There is no data to recover. You end up with like 7 stops of DR If you are lucky. Not counting if you get it right in camera you have less editing to do. Sure, we hopefully have the skill to push stuff around in post but the average person is not going to grade nothing, and they shounldn't be expected on Auto to Have to. I am not sure if you raise the exposure on these new Nikons to avoid the crushed blacks is there room at the top to Not blow out the highs? Maybe not, Nikon may be trying to preserve the highs as it is worse to blow them than crush the blacks. It is a odd duck CS if you ask me. Nothing I like very much. Nikon has somewhat in the last few years been known, at least on the camera photo side, as having a lot of DR, room to recover stuff. And it is a Sony Sensor, with Nikon's "secret sauce" in it so it ought to be capable. But they seemed, Nikon, to really change direction on these new ones. The older Nikons had some pretty great looking OOC CS. Interesting, surely no one complained about the D750 OOC look?
  12. Hey everyone! We shot this a few years back in Massai Land Kenya. I thought that I would share with you all since it was filmed pretty low key with a couple of DSLRs. A7sii/GH5 and an Rx100. Let me know what you think and GO Maasai Land!
  13. still debating in between the two. had a go at some C200 raw footage and boy Canon Raw Light really isn't that light at 1Gbps! I feel like those data rates might just be too much disk storage space for me to handle and are going to cost a fortune in Cfast cards. So really I'm afraid the C200 will probably be used with the 4K (UHD) 8-bit 150mbps codec 90% of the time.. and then that just begs to question am i really making a huge upgrade worth $7500 from my C100 & EOS R that can already shoot internal 8-bit UHD 4K at even higher (400mbps) bitrate as well as 10-bit external (which the C200 can't even do)? Only thing I'll be gaining as far as IQ is less RS and maybe a stop of DR. On the other hand the C300 mk2 shoots nice chunky 10-bit 422 DCI 4K / 12-bit 444 2K internal.. is broadcast ready, Netflix approved straight out the box and has raw 4K out. It can record to 3 media cards at once internally, and 5 with the outs. Just seems like such a workhorse. But yeah, dropping $10K on a 4-year-old camera is a little nerve racking when second hand C200's are floating around at $6.5K..
  14. It's so beautiful keessie65! I love the colors! hopefully i can find my Bolex sometime soon
  15. A wedding videographer/photographer weighs in on working with the S1 for an actual client shoot (subjective, I know). Organic-looking video thoughts? How about skin tone performance? Panasonic S1 - Real Wedding Shoot - I'm Blown Away - YouTube:
  16. I would guess the the i stood for injection, Ergo, Electronic Fuel Injection. It sort of looks like an Acura Integra GS from back in the day, at least up front. And Wow that is some Really black paint on it also. Nice looking car.
  17. No, the Z6 does not capture more details than Sony A7III. The Z6 has a strong AA filter that decreases details. https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/image-comparison/fullscreen?attr29_0=sony_a7iii&attr29_1=nikon_z6&attr72_0=4k&attr72_1=4k&normalization=full&widget=341&x=0.20082815032951964&y=-0.5766719152403976 Also No, the Z6 does not have better dynamic range than Sony A7III. We will wait and see the RAW output, but for now, its still not better.
  18. The irony in that scenario would be that Magic Lantern did a lot of the work for them. How do you know they haven’t offered?
  19. I'd like to share one or two clips, but I'm reluctant as I'm still learning how to properly use resolve and grade. I'm still working on my skills and, once I will be comfortable, I'll post here flat/before and an after clips. But what I can say is that the flat footage is quite neutral, and with only minor tweaks like curves, saturation etc. I really find the image to sing. And that's come from someone who likes what he sees from Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Fuji, BMD... I've always preferred Nikon for stills (over Canon), and I find all the attributes that make me like Nikon imagery in the Z6 video files. I've also owned Fuji for years, but, for my tastes, I personally prefer more my stills output with the Z6, than with my XT1, XE2 and XT2. I'm mostly a landscape/documentary photographer for what it worth. Once again, you can read on forums, for example, that Panasonic colors are not at Canon's level, and a people complain about that. But, I often watch beautiful GH5 stuffs that literally destroy a large part of the things I watch on Canon... Coming back to the Z6, I maintain what I think concerning the ratio of filmmakers/amateur-first-time-videographer in the available videos at the moment. Yesterday, I was searching for fresh Z6 footage on youtube, and I mostly came across strange framerate videos, awful grading, copy/paste styles or luts that are not adapted etc. applied to lots of Z6 clips. It really do not praise in favor of the quality of the camera. I do hope that the next firmware will bring more experienced persons to use the camera, and give us a larger amount of great videos to watch. Just a question : prores raw is, at the moment, not editable on PC. Do you guys think that it may be possible one day ? I'm eager to try prores raw recording with the Z6, but not ready to ditch all my computer gear to switch to apple (no money for that). Thank you !
  20. Do you have a link for the workaround? Really interested in that aha!
  21. Yea, based on the FS5, I'd say they could (if they wanted to be) the first company to add in a variable ND in a mirrorless body. Would have to make the body slightly bigger. However, this would crush FS5 sales, so I'm not sure they'll do it. They'll have to differentiate some other way (my guess).
  22. The WD Wireless Pro is an interesting workaround (as is the Gnarbox but at greater cost) to get around the file stuff. I've also come across a workaround today for the ProRes issue that could be uses with one of these so I might take the plunge after I've researched it a bit more.
  23. Better buy the Sony if you can afford it! It is definitely 2tiers above and it is not Rodelink big either.
  24. red motorbikes go fast as well, they also slide pretty fast as well, don't ask me how i know this 😎
