    ntblowz got a reaction from Video Hummus in R5 vs R6   
    Yesterday I was shooting bowl jam all day using mix of 4k25/50/100p, i didn't get the overheating warning but I did get down to 5 min, so for last grand final I did the reset trick (with v1.2 firmware) and worked. Weatherwise it got some patch of clouds so not boiling hot but still hot as it is the hottest month down here.

    Sad to think I got into filmmaking basically at the very PEAK of camera sales, and now it is so so much less. 

    @ntblowz, you could just about almost see me! If only the building at 2 Emily Place etc wasn't in the way.

     

    It's baaaaad news for the used market if you like picking up bargains. If for instance a future Nikon D500S gets released, you'll never ever see so many of those popping up on eBay a few years later, like you can find a Nikon D300S for ease dirt cheap.

    It's hard to say it's gone wrong. It's so-called creative destruction. There's simply no need for a mass consumer camera market any more. Every home used to have a camera, be it a compact, a SLR, a Polaroid or whatever. No-one needs those any more because everybody (even the children) has a phone that will take better snaps with fewer skills, in a format that allows instant sharing.

    Not sure what kind of revelation is this. Also not sure why the A1 bring something new here, actually on some canon body you get RAW so you have almost zero quality loss in taking still from video, I only wish there would be an open gate mode.
    The only thing that really change is the shutter speed but there sometime you get cool panned shoot if you are 1/50 vice versa for other scenes you could optimize more for the photo. New gen care less about the shutter speed as with games and gopro/phone video is all very high shutter speed stuff.
    Advantage of taking still from video is that you have more choice, sometime you capture moments that you would not have anticipated and pressed the shutter button and of course you have the whole video. Disadvantage is the workflow and shutter speed.
    I use a lot of remote camera, I trigger them with pocketwizard with an additional button mounted on the lens barrel so for hockey net remotes is great you don't want to record 60 min and scroll through to find the righ moment. But for sport that are more predictable like horse showjumping now I start the record maybe 20 sec before it reaches the obstacle and stop 20 sec after so I don't need to worry. In some key phases I have just turn on recoding before it starts.

    Sill from video at higher shutter speed:
    Mini 2


    Canon R5

     
    Insta360 1 inch

    Insta360 dual lens

     
    At 1/50

    Yeah all you do is planning and researching, haven't see you post anything about the stuff you buying or using, it's mostly stuff from YouTube.
    This year I m definitely geared more to livestreaming so will get some gears toward it.  (I tried the atem mini and l1 switcher, might tempted for the iso) , tried mars 400s and 300 pro and might get 400 pro cause you can use usb-c to ethernet input so max 5 camera!

    ntblowz reacted to newfoundmass in Their.Tube - YouTube completely in bed with QAnon, etc. promoting bullshit for clicks   
    I'm basing this on an interaction with him, plus his Twitter feed and likes, not the fact that he's on LBRY. I only mention it here because I mentioned previously he was on LBRY, and given the stuff he believes it makes sense why. While much of it disappeared as Q-anon accounts were banned, there's still enough to see on his account that shows he embraces toxic views. He literally supported the military stepping in to keep Trump in power. 
    When you believe and help spread disinformation and the same delusional stuff that caused the capital riots to happen, you're a part of the problem. This stuff should be called out in the filmmaking community.

    Really was bummed out to find that Tom Antos is one of those delusional Q-pilled Trump supporters. It explains why he started posting stuff to LBRY, seems he probably found out about them from the far right vloggers that have moved there.

    I did sell one of my 512 GB SanDisk and brought a Delkin 2 TB for 880 usd. So far so good, I used a few times for over 1 TB each of 8k RAW and 4k 120fps 10bit with no issue at all.

    ntblowz reacted to Andrew Reid in Andrew Reid on Filmmaking: When the truth is so awful, only liars win   
    Here begins a series of blog thoughts from me on the state of the world and filmmaking in 2021, after humanity decided to go headlong into a full dystopia like you see in the movies. There will in the future be many great cinematic masterpieces about our plight as citizens in the year 2020. Anyone who has seen Black Mirror writer Charlie Brooker’s “Death to 2020” on Netflix can see for themselves the historic plot twists and sheer lunacy of what we’ve been going through the past year.

    ntblowz reacted to IronFilm in PC Builds   
    I do agree, as someone who has actually built a few systems over the years, that doesn't sound like actually building a system up. You more or less got a fairly somewhat bare bones system, then threw in a few extra choice parts to super charge it up. 

    To be fair, as I get older and value my limited time on the earth more highly, and as I grow more and more out of touch with the latest fine details of latest PC products, I too could see myself doing similar for a future PC "build". 

    Just get a barebones build, then throw in the extra RAM / GPU / HDD / SSD that I source myself. As those things are easy easy to install yourself. 

    Am actually right now using this very second a PC I completely bought from China:
