  1. I think R7 does pretty good fight on HQ 4K vs R5C, they both look equally sharp?
  2. I still think a R6C (or with R3 sensor) is actually the most sense for most people than R5C or even R7C. It will be like the A7S of Canon but with oversampled 4k and better lowlight than most Canon offering on video, battery life should better since the chip doesn't have to work very hard on 8K data, and RAW is not ridiculous large since it is only 5K for people like shooting RAW. I recently finished a multicam project that shoot on 4k25/50p with 2 Panna and 2 Canon (500gb data), edit it on the cheapest mba m1 7gpu with 8gb and 256gb ssd and 2tb external ssd. I really pushed very hard on this little Mac lol. I didn't use proxy at all.
  3. I think the R5 is also line skipping 4k60p? For music videos and general content it is totally fine, only when shooting real estate with some textured furniture you can see the pixel edges. That's the only time I can see the inferior 4k60p. And we only shoot RAW on one project, most of the time it's ipb or ipb light since editing ALL-I on Nas drive is totally no go.. it just make us all laggy (that is with 10gb ethernet and ssd priority drive) with 3 editors using at same time.
  4. Your 18-135 have the better motor indeed with nano USM so paired with ND adapter will be very useful for video, I probably gonna use 18-35 1.8 for video work and the 18-150 for travel. I got m6 ii with 18-150 which i plan to sell once I got the r7 with 18-150. R5 with 24-240 is just a tad big/heavy for casual outting/trips for me. R7 with IPB lite you can get away with v30 cards on 4k60p, just photos will be slower if shooting burst on uhs-1 cards. On normal IPB you do need v60 or more or camera will stop recording due to slow speed. I have the breakthrough X4 VND drop in filter which is a lot better than Canon one with no blue colour shift between min to max ND level, that is really nice with 1.4 lens in bright daylight. ( I have to stop down with canon VND or unless you shoot day for night scene lol) Both the 35mm and 85mm's focus speed is not as good as their EF counterpart due to their "macro" feature, but image quality is not bad. I used to have them but only have the RF 16 and 50mm left for much lighter setup. RF 16 will be nice on R7 as it becomes 25mm. I m waiting for the RF 24mm 1.8 which is more useful for me focal length wise (becomes 38mm on R7), you can also go for the 24mm ef-s pancake for a more casual setup.
  5. Back to topic my pre-order R7 with kit got pushed back, might be another month for next shipment ugh.
  6. Is R5's 4K60P line skipped or pixel binned? If 4K60P quality is similar to R5 then that is quite acceptable. For normal 4K25/30p I think R7 is better than R5 with unlimited recording/no overheating supersampled 7K vs overheating HQ 4K or (pixelbinned) regular 4K. When you want to punch in post you can really see the difference in sharpness.
  7. Now that the company I work want most videos in 16:9 (youtube). 9:16 (tiktok), 4:5 (IG) format, I m begining the think M43 ratio size is actually the best aspect ratio for this kind of requirement, or is 3:2 from ASP-C/FF a better ratio?
  8. Leaked photo of the 22mm f2 rf-s
  9. The price of those new Canon APS-C is quite bit higher than I anticipated, makes me feel that M6 II combo I got a while ago is very good bargain, with 18-150, 11-22, 15-45 kit, 28mm macro and EVF and still cheaper than a single R10 body lol.
  10. My friend's new GH6 just arrived!
  11. Having experienced some VR events (some are paid too) the 4k feels like really low res, the 5.7k is the absolute minimum for those type of stuff and 8k+ is definitely what VR need. Na haven't shoot 8k, but did try 5.9k50p raw lt and even m1 max with 32gpu/64gb ram is slideshow on latest premiere, the cpu is running 100% too. On fcx and da vinci it is smooth though, but fcx don't have wb/iso adjustment.
  12. It goes dead when i select 8k50p, but in other modes the lens functions, so you can preset the lens before switching to 8k50p.
  13. Lol Anyway there might be update coming to fix r5c battery life, apparently it still does the super sampling while not recording.
  14. I might need to try on light lens (the 50/16 rf), atm only have L RF lens Btw this is how I usually shoot with r5c, use powerbank connect directly to camera
  15. If using internal battery, if powered external there is IS from the lens.
  16. Oops u r right, it can record internally but will show this message. I use mi powerbank pro 3 20000mah 45w, I see they have new model with 50w power, u just plug usb-c/usb-c port to both the powerbank and on the camera, no need decoupler
  17. 8k50p won't work with internal battery, only external, yeah you are right it is a 45w powerbank, got mixed up with my other 18w pd.
  18. Should be? But I would rather use powerbank which last ages, today I did an 8 hour shoot of talking to cam on 2K, the 20000mah 18W PD powerbank still have 1/4 power left. Btw those Lumix lens bag is sooo useful, I still use them to put small stuff like powerbank or accesories lol.
  19. I think NZ and Australia got the first shipment? 🤔 I m from NZ
  20. C70's raw file size is much more manageable than c200/c300's 1gbps monster and that's only 10bit in 4k50/60p vs 12bit on c70. The 2k raw is even usable in wedding too lol (for ceremony, not sure about reception cause of lowlight on s16 crop). This raw update really makes c70 attractive! No need bulky external monitor + battery if you want compact raw cinema camera.
  21. Got the R5c today, checked the video AF and it locked on fine. 512GB only last 30min of 8k50p, on 5.9k 50p it last nearly an hour which is more doable. Might have to use the speedbooster again for 5.9k raw 🤔 And battery life is much worse than R5, 4k50p last 40 something min so I guess I will be pairing with my 18w pd powerbank for long tripod shoot.. Btw absolutely no video on photo mode. You have to switch mode to do video and vice versa. Body and operating wise it feels like mini c70 when shooting video, better balance with lens than R5 I reckon.
  22. I went to the R5 after a few Sony/Panasonic cameras later after GH5 Now waiting for R5C
  23. magenta skintone is fixed too (canon slog3 also have magenta skintone problem grr)
  24. Just saw potato jet's review, really impressed with DR Boost on GH6, the Canon mirrorless camera's DR is soo lacking
