  1. That is sad to hear, cancer fu^king sucks, lost my dad to cancer, hope you and your family will go through this dark times
  2. Yeah, and for Panasonic EVA camera too, EF mount is just a bit more limiting.
  3. Anyway back to the topic, looks like no 3rd party lens until 2024 https://www.canonrumors.com/dont-expect-any-third-party-autofocus-lenses-in-the-near-future/
  4. I got the Canon VND but changed the filter to breakthrough X4 VND for best VND on the market. We also got the Canon speedbooster for C70 but once we migrate to all RF lens (24-70 2.8, 28-70 F2, 15-35 f2.8, 70-200 F2.8 etc) it kinda becomes irrevalent.. except just for the EF 35mm F2 IS which we still have pairs well with C70. We just dont buy third party for best compatibility issue, I have a friend who have Sigma 24-105mm Art but it locks his C70 up from time to time.. once he changed to Canon no more lockup. Next upgrade will be looking at V-Raptors and Komodo combo.. at least our RF lens still works.
  5. For few hundreds more you can get used A7S3 though for better image quality 🤔 but less MP for stills. I guess $2500 is the new price point for cropped sensor, would the rumoured R7C be at this price too.
  6. Interesting to see EF 24-70 2.8 II @ 24mm 2.8 is better than EF 24mm 1.4 II at 2.8, I have RF 24-70 2.8 and got RF 24mm 1.8 a while back, on my test RF 24mm is definitely quite sharper on the corner than RF 24-70mm, does that mean RF 24mm is actually shaper than EF 24mm 1.4 II L on corner?! There are 3 tier of RF prime, the L prime the IS prime (24/35/85) and cheap prime (16/50), I do find the 16/50 image quality is not as sharp as IS primes and L zooms.
  7. I don't think any of the cheap lens from Sony or Nikon have lens hood, I have to buy them myself. And they are cheap anyway so no biggie.. What I do find is the lack of lens bag on cheap lens except Pansonic is disheartening, I been using their lens bag to hold accessories and stuff which is quite useful.
  8. You can still adapt cheap EF lens if going on budget. That is what some of the people use on their RF system from what I see, and of course VND adapter is really useful for video. Most of existing accessories still works too so it's not like you are start from scratch again going from EF to RF except if u want to go all RF. And if you want to go Red then all ur RF will work fine on Red camera since they use RF mount as well, totally different story if you are native E mount or Z mount lens user and want to migrate Red camera.
  9. Canon RF 1.8 primes are quite light and compact too (except 85 f2 which is not as compact or light), the RF 50 can be had for $110 used which is a bargain, though I do miss 3rd party's cheap and compact 2.8 zoom but it's not end of the world as I can use 3rd party 2.8 ef lens.
  10. For the hybrid shooting R5 is defintiely better, but if just mainly for video or birding then R7 is much better value. As I said if I didnt have R5 I would go for R7 without a thought.
  11. Oops it was 4k fine mode he tested, R5 last longer than R7 on video overheating, but chew battery faster.
  12. Firmware 1.6 is much better.. shoot a whole night in 4k50p which I never did before and not a single warning, that also what prompted me to cancel my R7 pre-order. The sole purpose of R7 for me was unlimited 4k50p, but after that youtube test turns out R5 can shoot longer than R7 especially on 4k60p on outdoor daylight.
  13. But if I didn't have R5 I will most certainly go for R7 for sure. For majority of the shoot I did R7 ticks a lot of box, I don't think client will see the difference lol 😆
  14. As R5 user I m disagree on that! R5 Have better photo quality, oversampled 4k60p option (non on r7) and 4k120p which have way better quality than 1080p120. Rolling shutter is also less too. Overheating is a history with v1.6 firmware. But that time limit is a bummer for long session recording options.
  15. PD power delivery is a painful plus for me as it is like switching to EV car, but once you are set you be pretty sweet, atm my monitor can power my MacBook Air and R5, Smallrig Vmount with PD-C can power any light, camera that can use vmount, and R5 or power the macbook, and my mi pro PD-C powebank can also power Atem mini (with the right adapter) for completely mobile liveswitching without the need of portable generator.
  16. Excellent write up, but I think the 18-150 does have IS but u can only switch in the camera as there is no switch on lens (same for ef-m one which I had). I hope Canon can fix the wobble like it did with R5/R6 cause that really improves wide angle on handheld.
  17. And with 1.6 Firmware update R5 can record longer 4K Fine than R7 before overheating under the big sun.. intresting.
  18. Yeah! While I am still on my R5 that was bought 2 years ago lol 😆 But seems like he still have FX3? So some camera he just keep I think. I bought R5 mainly for the no overheating on standard 4k, I don't really that 8k or 45mp, but lately on some greenscreen shot i done the 8k is quite useful for controlling spills like woman's hair or wedding veil due to high resolution.
  19. HEVC 4k50p 422 mp4, I only get 40min for fresh lp-e6nh
  20. Interesting he sold the R5C and got R5.
  21. Non of the eos camera can do punch in focus while recording, only cinema lines can do (include r5c). You always hook up to external monitor for punch in zoom while recording That a good value of bonus you got, the place I live didn't have any pre-order bonus (cheap ass!)
  22. The camera show 20min if u put lp-e6 on it
  23. Yeah lol! Seriously if R5 performs like this at first I dont think that many people will get R5C.
  24. I did shoot yesterday all day on 4k50p and some 100p, no overheating symbol once! Soo over the moon with this update! Man if they do that in the first place 2 years ago it will be way different market now.
