    I only sort of like the nikkor 50 1.2 at night. I wish I had the money to buy the noct 58 1.2

    Thanks, the lens was wide-open, you can notice this looking at the booked balls not showing aperture blades and spherical aberration making everything soft. The other shots are medium format pentax 105 2.4mm

    EOSHD's best and worst cameras of 2018

    Canon continues to play the hot girl that won't give you any, unless you are loaded. Instead she gave you her less attractive, crippled sister (eos r), while she chases your rich cousin.

    Here's my top 5 cameras of 2018. Of course we all know "there's no such thing as a 'bad' camera" any more but there is such a thing as a dull, boring rip off. Then there's the stuff that has a shelf life of a few months, that you just know is a stepping stone before the real deal arrives. In many ways 2018 was a good year to keep hold of what you have and wait for the dust to settle. An eventful one for technology, especially in the second half where we saw some glimpses of the future. In 2018 we had six truly great cameras for filmmakers and a few that didn't make my top list like the RX100 VI but which are nevertheless still useful in one way or another. Read the full article

    So? Could have done both APS-C EVA1 sensor and MFT mount (hello JVC LS300!)

    I would say so haha. I worked as 2nd AC on a short film this past summer. Here's a photo I took of the DP with the Rep Dragon and Angeniuex Optimo 12x zoom lens. We had to carry that shit up and down hill every day and it fucking sucked.

    Once hybrid tools are the logic behind this community I don't see anything bad on this list so cameras like Z cam E2 have trouble to overcome their own market segment, even though no camera beats the honorable mention added there, reason why that honor dock also has its place. I even much appreciate Andrew's eye and doesn't seem to me rather important that or other order less or more randomly to speak frankly. Nice to know I am not alone to the arrival over similar findings. I just feel to note IMHO, P4K is the best camera not only to be part of a year's top list, but ever designed and produced so far. I'd also drop my bell to attribute a 2nd honor medal for the Osmo Pocket. No other tool had offered such thing in the camera history. Two game changers. The hybrids are far away to be. Let's not forget GH5 did it a year earlier. That said, hope no one may end as unlucky to receive Fujis from same batch of @DBounce's units. Just my 0.2 cents, Emanuel : -)

    A few of my 2018 winners would be : "Signpost Award" : Insta 360 One X, not for its actual 360 necessarily but for pointing the way to how much that omni-capture can bring to the table in terms of stabilisation and re-framing for regular flat content. I picked one up just before Christmas and whilst its not my first rodeo when it comes to 360 cameras, its the first one that has really delivered on the shoot now frame later concept. Don't get me wrong, it is full of flaws but it is very close to being there for being the first choice leisure/travel/vlogging camera for a lot of people. It doesn't take much imagination to consider the possibilities for other type of film making as well if manufacturers like Pansonic, Fuji, Sony etc were so inclined. "Hannibal Lecter Award" : Fuji for cannibalising sales of its video centric X-H1 by having better video specs on the X-T3. "Bob Marley Award" : Jointly won by Sony for making everyone Wait In Vain for the A7Siii and Blackmagic for the Pocket 4K batteries Jamming. "Horticultural Award" : The Blackmagic Pocket 4K for sprouting more plants than the Chelsea Flower Show in this forum in September.

    3 years ago ML was the bee's knees. Now, you can get a raw capable camera for 1300$, speedboost it to reach 1.3X crop factor for less than 2000$, and a camera made for that purpose, not an after thought while you still can officially service it after recording raw. Times, they are a - changin'...

    I do not see red or arri implementing good autofocus. So not sure why blackmagic should. Its a cinema camera, and ibis or autofocus are not on my havetoo shortlist. The pocket 4k is on place 1 for sure on my list.

    So I finally put my first Ursa Mini short film up on Youtube. It's a horror short called "Last Line of Defense" and was shot in spring 2017 to serve as a stress-test for the then-new Ursa Mini 4,6K. It's not a test video though, it's a full - if short- short horror film with serious effort put in the filmmaking essentials - from wardrobe to the effects. The main mission here was to put the UM into as extreme lighting situations as possible, so I drew up a story about a border station in some unknown future, where a group of men guard the station against an unknown threat, in the darkness, with only emergency flares to serve as lights. So we were able to experiment extreme contrast scenarios and low light. We shot the short film over a weekend, spending one night in the "border" set in the woods, and another one in the "bunker" set we built in the basement of our studio. The biggest cost in the whole short film were the emergency flares, of which I bought 10, mainly to get enough coverage for the finale - one flare gave us less than a minute of shooting time. This was my first touch with the Ursa Mini, and it's what sold me on the camera. The grade is quite simple by my current standards, but the images we were able to capture in those quite extreme lighting conditions turned out shockingly well. Most of shooting was done handheld with unstabilized lenses (Sigma 18-35 1.8, Samyang 24 1.4 and Pentax Super-Takumar 50 1.4) The forest set was lit with a set of Aputure Amaran led panels and a 4000K 1600 lumen light bulb that were all cast through a large diffuser, and the interior set used mostly a mix of small tungsten practicals and available sunlight. Once again, the worst bottleneck for the image quality ends up being the Youtube compression. Hope you enjoy the short, and feedback is very much appreciated

    That was my issue a few pages back, the Fuji LUTS almost think that the Log is flatter than it is. Those new Arri Luts are king currently tho. Been making 3 nodes with it. 1. Flog to LogC - 2. (corrections) 3. LogC to 709. Amazing results.

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    4.6K has worse low light (usable range maxes out at 800ISO) and is heavier (translates to requiring heavier rigs and tripods) but OTOH it also has hugely better ergonomics (you can actually shoot handheld/shouldered like an ENG camera), better sensor in many ways (bigger, higher res for oversampling, more DR, better color) more codec choices, better connections for broadcast shooting etc. You can actually use the onboard sound recording as well - if you have quality mics. Been working with one for two years now and while I love the Pocket 4K, Ursa is still the big brother, and Pocket the B-cam.

    IBIS is great until you get lens flares dancing around a seemingly stable shot. I'm happy to own several cameras with it and a few without it.

    It does squeezes 2x as well, but GH5's HDMI will output 4:3 image in 16:9, so it will appear as a picture in picture. Keep that in mind. I use Feelworld F7 which has custom zoom and custom anamorphic stretch options, works like a charm with GH5.

    I hope your coffee machine can do actions photos like that. Care to give me the brand please so I can dish all my cameras. I prefer to take advise from actual professional than youtubers and website who never ever have any practical shooting experience and will spend one day with a completely new camera.

    Cool you found it. I have lots of those moments! Also, if you don't want to edit the clips but just want to convert all of them to Prores, then the Media Management tool under the File menu (when the Media page is selected) is a great tool. It can also export the things only on the timeline too, either the whole clips that appear on the timeline, or the same but also trimming the clips on the timeline and optionally adding extra frames to the start/end of each clip for flexibility in editing later on.

    Let's hope the GRiii isn't going to be one of the biggest disappointments of 2019 like the GRii was when it was announced. The new lens in the GRiii with fewer elements makes me a bit worried.

    so i've been shotting a few things lately while i am traveling. about the focus peaking i can say that the color you want to use is bright yellow. i barely could see the red, sometimes didn't see anything with the red selected, with yellow it is much much better.

    It is not just the Greeks! Is kinda almost universal across many different countries, there is a frequent common requirement for 10bit.

    My quick EVA1 mini review

    I don't understand why it has had to be repeated so often, re: 10 bit. 🤣 TV networks and stations literally require it, even smaller local stations. If I was @Oliver DanielI'd be annoyed about the price cut happening right after buying it! I'm looking forward to seeing what he's able to do with it!

    ^^^^^^ lets do this guys!!! im too dumb, and poor – i admit it! so step it up yall!!! 😂 the camera i liked most this year was definitely the xt3... might pick up a used one in the future to play around with 😎 canon apparently *cant* make a camera anything like that. theyre a frickin hot mess. the eos-r is a frankencamera piece of garbage. sorry not sorry, looking at that thing makes me think their engineers are on hallucinogens update: guys im not sure but i think hitler might have killed himself over the eos-r

    Well now we know magic lantern does not brick the camera. So now def the time users can step up and test. - [extremely easy] find out whether photo capture works (this didn't work from FIR; just try the intervalometer sample code) - [extremely easy] play around with FPS and resolution overriding registers; document what works and what not - [easy, important] update the codebase to 1.1.2 (easy coding tutorial following task, still open, can be debugged in QEMU) - [easy] log various things in Canon firmware (such as photo capture, entering LiveView); the digic6-dumper branch has logging enabled by default. - [moderate, important] figure out how to print things on the screen (look up 5DS experiments, posts from Ant123 and read the CHDK threads on this topic) - [moderate?] fix the emulator to run these things properly - [moderate?] port io_trace to ARMv7 (can be debugged in QEMU) - [moderate] try to understand the communication between the two cores (main and AE) - [hard] understand the Omar secondary core (it appears to handle the image capture pipeline)

    I know Nikkors turn the “wrong way” but it seems more natural to me. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve owned so many lenses that turn that way, so I’m just used to it or if my brain wants infinity to turn toward the right. I have more trouble with my Canon lenses. Luckily I can adjust my muscle memory fairly quickly that it’s never an issue. I’ve also learned to yell “action” well after I hit record. I actually like 50mm lenses. I’m kinda obsessed with them and definitely have tested more 50mm lenses in my life than other focal lengths. But with my love affair with the Nikkor 35mm 1.4, I’m unsure if a 50mm would add much more that I couldn’t get with a quick camera replacement than a lens change. As I shoot more and more, I am really enjoying this one prime lens concept. As @kye suggested, I am really getting a feel for composing for specific projects based on subject/thematic material. Plus it lets me find and use a few gems from different manufacturers. Of course, lens tests can become just as much of a hobby as filmmaking can be. In fact, one of my goals for 2019 is to produce more films and one of the ways I want to go about doing that is to make micro short films. So when I do get a new lens that I like, I will instead make a short film with that single lens, instead of just going out and doing a test. By doing this, I’m hoping my eye will become more trained while I also get more accomplished. With all this Nikkor talk, I figured I’ll flip the script with another framegrab from the Canon 35mm f/2 shot from my film...

    I am quoting just for everyone to re-read this great post. Insta was in my shopping list for Christmas also, but finally I went full DJI (Ronin S/Mavic 2 Pro). People praising the little Osmo camera but Insta is closer to the future than that.

    I might get the C200

    That would be the perfect cam for a lot of people out there (incl me), pack Gh5s sensor with ibis, PDAF and pair with that 10-25mm F1.7 lens is definitely the winning combo!

    I might get the C200

    I sort of agree. However they certainly could make their offerings more attractive. An M43 camera with 4K up to 120fps and better high speed HD would still be very attractive. Especially if it had IBIS and the GH5's low light capabilities and PDAF.

    My quick EVA1 mini review

    Serendipitously, Panasonic announced a price drop for the EVA1 today. $6495 MSRP, down from $7345. I'm doing my best not to pull the trigger on a second one. but also wondering if this drop is in anticipation of an EVA2 (or EVA1 Mark II) announcement in the coming months.
