  2. Often the digital look of video is because of clipped highlights and crushed shadows. A sudden step from detailed shadows to sudden black or missing details in highlights are often a sign that the full luminance range of your camera file is being clipped by the hardware you use to edit and playback footage.

    Sony A7S III is noisy

    She's pretty smart, by the 3rd or 4th month, she'd probably catch on... I wonder how long it would take for her to realize her car isn't parked out front. That could get me halfway there.

  5. Here you can clearly see the reason I got the H3D-II 39 megapixel Kodak beast. Brightened it up a bit so you can see the sensor size vs GFX 100... It is "only 39 megapixel" but that is enough for me. I have found my affair with the GFX 100 a bit financially draining and exhausting to be honest! Who the fuck buys a 10 grand camera 1 month before a global pandemic?

  8. The great thing is you can just stick it on Aperture priority and Auto ISO, and concentrate on getting the shot perfectly with pristine image quality, no noise to speak of. Try doing that on the A7S III or EOS R6!

  9. 12,800 is too high for a native ISO. You will be shooting at base 640 boosted to 3200 or 6400 most of the time in dim light or indoors. Therefore the A7S III has a problem especially in S-LOG 3. The files look a bit shit. They are noisier than the EOS R6 and Panasonic S5!

Yet it is always much healthier to act on principal, and let true feelings come out. Principled people are actually quite rare and as soon as money or business is on the line, principals go out of the window. It is why the world is in such a mess and why horrible people like Philip Bloom have Sony sponsorship even after all we know.

    Yeah, that's a weird take and a misplaced analogy here. Who is saying taht there is no point in making the image (food in your anology) look (taste) good? Did you miss the comment I made about how I'm adding a color calibrated monitor to my editing workflow right now? Hell, I literally just had to stop typing this to go get the B&H package off my doorstep with the X-RIte Display Pro in it. What I said was "Having people view them on a variety of devices in a variety of conditions is even better, in that it replicates what the average viewer might be seeing." So, a better analogy woul

  17. Clar 350 on sale for $399. Not sure about the fan noise on that one but looks like it could be a good alternative, I like the remote and the PSU looks ok. But there's 3 fans and a fan in the PSU so... good luck if you want to change anything. I'm sure next year there will be even better lights! But at these prices, fighting daylight has never been more accessible. I put 4x 300w through a full grid, getting around 11.5-12EV. Finally can light against windows!

  18. Yeah, the image quality is better than A7S III too. OK, there's no 4K/120p (or 100fps for us in PAL land) but you can do a lot of creative stuff with 60p in 4K and 180fps in HD. 60p can easily be Twixtor'd. I'd prefer if it looked a little more cinema camera and less Lumix but the ergonomics are superb. Colour is better than Sony too. For manual focus, tripod and handheld cinematic shooting there is nothing better for the price and size, I'd take it over Blackmagic's shit any day.

    Is sensor envy a thing? What struck me the most about the 100c video was the depth in the frame... for a two-dimensional image, it feels like you can walk into the frame in some of those shots. It's pretty wild. When you add the texture from the raw image, the 16bit color and the advertised "15 stops of DR" I don't know if there are many cameras that can top that look. I'm sure my 2014 MB Air would cut right through those files... haha.

  24. The oversampling doesn't mean anything. In both the 24p and 60p it is the same and looks sub-sampled with some aliasing visible. The 10bit 422 is a pain to edit. The 120fps HD isn't unique, that has been around since the Sony A99 II several years ago. The IBIS is no better performing than the competition. Actually DPAF is no longer even top dog. The newest Sony AF systems are better. I don't mind 20MP. I do like the C-LOG 10bit image quality on the whole it nails the rendering of a shot with perfect colour and white balance. It's a good sensor and that

  26. Sony A1 in 8K video has exactly the same rolling shutter as the R5 15.5ms..... don't trust marketing bla bla. Why you want to use ProRes Raw instead of Canon Raw Light? Did you test both 8k RAW in your machine?

  27. Yeah don't get me wrong I think it's fantastic and very rare to have such clean 12,800 and 25,600 results. The other way you can get around the noisy S-LOG 3 results between 3200 and 10,000 is to simply change to a Cine gamma mode instead or use a flat profile like EOSHD Pro LOG. It is just that if you want maximum dynamic range at these commonly used ISOs in S-LOG 3 then other cameras like Panasonic S1H will give you much cleaner results from a higher resolution sensor and 6K.

    Best AF lens for XT3?

    The F2 lenses are nice I just never found them to be great with continuous auto focus for video. I'd probably go with Viltrox if I was going the Fuji path again.

  29. Speaking purely from a personal perspective why I don't use an external recorder (either Ninja, or anything else): - A second complex interface to operate, on top of the one already on the camera distracts me from the shoot - The bulky ergonomics makes handheld shooting a chore at double the weight, unless you go all the way and turn it into a shoulder mounted ENG camera - No weather sealing on the recorder, and big brick of a battery on the back rather than it being internal and discrete - I absolutely can't stand HDMI as an interface. It's so flakey and unreliable. Easy t

  34. You might be thinking of the minor diversion in the GX80 Cinelike D thread where someone wanted to build a slow motion photo booth-ish type of device and monitor whilst still shooting. The solution I proposed was to use a FlashAir card in the camera as this can be recording the file but simultaneously be accessed by another device over wifi to begin playing it whilst is still recording. So a cheap SBC computer like a Pi with a network media player on it and a screen would be able to monitor it and then re-stream it if necessary online. Can't remember whether they went ahead wit

    Best AF lens for XT3?

    Just to add, when I talk about f4, for me it's more a low light thing than shallow DOF 'issue'. F4 is f4 for light gathering regardless of sensor size (though that one will be debated forever in some quarters) but equivalent to f6 in FF terms re. shallowness of DOF. I'll take a faster aperture over a higher ISO if I can and this for me has always been the issue, the smaller the sensor, but anyway... I'd be tempted to just go 18-55 and ONLY if it flags up any shortcomings, look beyond that. Depends on your needs... I have an f4 zoom for my FF camera and on anything othe

    Best AF lens for XT3?

    Viltrox seem to be great at tracking but for subjects moving in and out of frame you have abrupt focus transitions. The Fuji F2 line up is pretty good but there are a lot of random focus hunting issues. The 18-55 is actually the best lens I've used auto focus wise. Doesn't seem to hunt and tracks well. I've heard the OG Fuji 1.4 lenses are actually quite good, they just aren't as fast as newer lenses and are also a bit noisy.

    Title says best AF lens but then you ask for cheap AF glass? Best one is XF 16-55. Cheap one is the kit lens you have.

    what camcorder

    I had the Sony AX100 for that kind of thing but sold it and replaced it with it’s tiny brother, the Sony ZV1. Same sensor, unlimited recording (if you set it to do so), constant faster aperture, but doesn’t have the same zoom reach obviously. If weddings start up for me in the second half of this year, it will be on a lightweight tripod doing full length ceremony and full length speeches. Next year however, it will go to backup as my S5 will take over that roll. 30 minute limit in 10bit I know, but that’s OK as I will just stop/start at an appropriate moment. Battery life i

From Panasonic's Official Press Release: "Providing 4:2:2 10-bit DCI 4K/60p recording capability, the LUMIX GH6 achieves unlimited video recording when the camera is used under the certified operating temperature. It is reliable enough to record continuous footage for a desired duration. It also provides a 10-bit 4K 120p High Frame Rate (HFR) and Variable Frame Rate (VFR) for high resolution slow/quick motion video. Moreover, the GH6 records 10-bit 5.7K 60p video by taking full advantage of the newly developed Micro Four Thirds sensor." I shared the photos of literature of the

  44. @Sage I'm still absolutely loving this LUT, and it just keeps getting better and better! I use it for pretty much every single project I shoot, S1 for A-cam and GH5 for b-cam, but lately, combined with anamorphic and pro res raw, it has felt extra tasty. I just love what it does to greens, especially. These screenshots are some standouts from the past couple weeks. Thanks for all your hard work! I recommend your Alexa LUT to all my lumix-shooting friends

  46. I think the GH6 may not need an attention grabbing feature to stand out considering the price bump. People who were at the limits of the GH5 might find that the GH6 is worth the upgrade, considering how much money they might have in lenses and the total cost of changing systems. For example: 120p going from 1080p to 4K is a useful upgrade for those that use that mode, sports shooters for example 60p going from 4K 8-bit to 5.7K 10-bit is a meaningful change too, especially for those shooting log Even in an incremental upgrade there are likely to be other minor improvem

  47. I've been on the good ship Panasonic for 11 years now, using the GH series for my video business. Last year I got an S1 to pair with my GH5. I love the combo as an A/B setup for interviews, and for location shooting having the GH5 with the stellar Leica 8-18mm on the gimbal ready to roll. It's a small and powerful system I can put in a single backpack and the Lumix cameras have never missed a beat for me, bullet-proof in professional environments. However... after a brief flirtation with a C200 I crave built-in NDs and more video-centric ergonomics. The C200 was too heavy and large f
