    ntblowz reacted to Alexander Leith in Sony A7R II official user thread   
    I posted my heat testing results on DVXuser (mine was the camera that turned off without warning).
    Further testing yesterday with an external power supply and a cable battery adapter, and there's no difference in overheating. Again around 27 minutes in S35 and about 48 mins (with a 1min break at 29mins) in FF. I did notice that in S35 4K mode, that it did sometimes overheat without first getting a temperature warning icon.
    And testing with USB power wasn't enough to to keep the camera on.

    So it will overheat in 4K mode unless you use external recorder, not that great if the only mode that gives you the good result (S35 4K) also have overheating issue.
     
    Better to wait for A7S II if you want reliable 4K continuous shoot

    Late is better than never, when can we get H.264 recording option from Samsung? Right now we need even more space for H.265 because it need to be converted to H.264 first.

    ​The A7R II price is way out of league for most of people, the 4K APS-C will be priced more reasonable at least that most of us can actually afford it.

    ntblowz got a reaction from Sekhar in 3-Axis Brushless Gimbal Stabilizer: buy or alternative?   
    Yeah, if you dont need them now you can always wait, while for those who do either one of them can do the job, and by the time 32bit comes out you already master the gimbal compare to those who still wait, and you gonna beat them since your brain and body knows how to "fly" those well, and you will know which pid works and what not.
     
    This one is done on Nebula 4000 with GH4 + Olympus 12 2.0, 25 1.8, 45 1.8, Sigma 60 2.8,  7-14 4.0, Nokton 25 0.95 and GH2 Samyang 7.5 3.5 on monopod

    No surprise really, if they offer 4K on 5DIV the C100 MK II will loss a lot more potential customers.. it's PROFIT MARGIN first for Canon nowadays.

    ntblowz got a reaction from Cinegain in GH4 or NX1 please help me decide   
    I uses both, for fast turnaround project or co-op with other people GH4 is the way to go, especially if you have same day edits for wedding, no time for transcoding!  NX1 I mainly use it for gimbal  (AF is awesome!)
    GH4 can look cinematic if you know how to shoot and colour grade  (same for other DSLR type camera including NX1)
     
    Like this one is shot on GH4.. nothing docu look at all!

    Funny I ditched A7/5D2 for NX1/GH4 for wedding.. and don't miss the FF look, or "worse" low light performance, slowmo and aerial is the buzz lol.
    For most client they don't really care about the stuff at we care. they just want good edited video with the right mood/atmosphere that show off their day.
     
    For commercials they are much more picky, you can rent EPIC/FS7/C300 on the corner.

    I like NX1's colour even though I only got it for a week compare to Panasonics (used since GH1),  as I can always rent the A7s but not GH4/NX1 around my area so that's another reason why I bought NX1.

    NX500 is really a 2.5K camera at heart, if you think like that it is not too bad.  Luckily I bought NX1 instead of waiting for NX500, I will be keeping that little LX100 for a lot longer now lol.
