    At this current pandemic it's kinda dumb to invest huge money for wedding business

    And, from what I understand is that this guy wants to start in Wedding videos and move to doc and commercial work.
    Blowing it all on just a body.... doesn’t make sense.
    Equipment cost < Business Profit
    Look at high end equipment later. Start getting customers first... start charging a rate that covers your hours put into it + equipment rental rate (estimate).
    If you get enough customers then invest in equipment.

    So I don't know if this has been posted yet in this thread but here are some files from the C70 to play with : 
    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/5wrkdi1w5flb94w/AADlSb_ODzKnOO7f2gBTJ_9Ma?dl=0

    I don't know for you but I hear people complain about the difficult Canon codecs and files to edit compared to say those of the Sony A7sIII but I have no problem editing in real time those files on my computer.
    Speaking about IQ, it's quite good, the amount of noise in the shadows is minimal, it's a pleasure to grade those files.

    Well I saw on L Mount Rumors this morning that the first of the new f1.8's is due in just a couple of days, the 5th November to be precise and some of the specs have been leaked:
    Is that Polish, I don't know but weight of 355g is good. Very good.
    Filter size of 67mm is also good as it's the same as the 20-60 so crossover.
    Is that length of 82mm (without lens hood), because if so, also good!
    And if as it seems to be, the 24, 35 and 50 are all identical in size, even further good news because what this camera needs is some fast (enough IMO) compact glass!

    I use the entire Flashpoint system, and they really do work great! I use the Flashpoint XPLOR 600 and the Zoom LiOn.

    The timing! I’m in the middle of making my own similar device, with a raspberry pi zero, only mine will offer both LIDAR-based AF for my Pocket4K as well as SteadXP-type stabilization using a gyroscope and accelerometer.
    Mine is for me though, no plans to sell, so we can skip the cease and desist letters.
    I am also working on an iOS app for the iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max that will do the same things, use the phone’s LIDAR to control BMPCC’s af as well as record movement with gyro and accelerometer for stabilization. That one will be available soon.

    Finally get hands on the c70 at local Canon event.  The lighter setup is definitely welcomed over c200, AF wise I think it is just slightly better, not as sticky as the R5 I use.  The digital IS can turn on by itself so good for lens without IS.

    ntblowz reacted to BjornT in Panasonic S5 Entry Level Full Frame seems to be real...   
    Shot on the S1 with a 1/8 black pro mist (side interview shot is GH5) and some 16mm grain added in.
    Heavily graded but if you have a bit of color grading knowledge then the S5/S1/S1H is a big step up from GH5 (not to mention low light capabilities). I think the v-log on the S series has a more organic quality than any of Sony, Canon's, Fuji's current offerings (less sharpening).
    Just bought the S5 as a 2nd camera so look forward to testing that out.

    2010 and 2020 is quite a lot of difference
    The house price went from avg $440K to $950K here, but the wage didn't increase double. As result of that more people just do civil marriage or smaller weddings, and the number of people getting married is down each year as well, while more wedding videographer pop up each year as equipment is getting much easier and cheaper to aquire.  So more people grabbing a shrinking pie.
     
    We done jibs before too, album covers, poster etc, and even rent Red Helium.  Just the overall trend of wedding market is down in general. I stopped wedding as my main income around 2016, I  only do second shoots if my video friend need help, otherwise i just defer inquiry to my friends as it just not worth the hassle for me when I get better return elsewhere.

    Regarding the 180 degree rule... I honestly think it’s best used on 24, 25, 30 frames footage as it gives it the “illusion of movement/blur” that works in our collective memory (and at 30 the motion is already so fluid that it matters less). But on higher frame rates you are already messing with reality and time so if the blur is not there is a lot less objectionable. If you are not slowing down 50 or 60 frames, the motion is already hyper-real so it’s a different aesthetic in itself and the 180 rule can be thrown out the window.

    Yes, with the focus motor support it can work on any camera or lens combination.
    In that respect, the camera is just acting as a mounting point for the LIDAR sensor !
    Obviously you only get the focus control rather than the additional full control of ISO,WB etc that you get with the BM cameras.

    Already hinted at (heavily !) in another thread but the AFX focus control functionality is now a lot more universal than just the Pocket 4K/6K cinema cameras.

    For Pocket 4K/6K owners who want to use manual lenses as well as electronic ones there is a Hybrid mode to control the lens with the motor whilst still being able to control ISO,WB etc over BLE as usual.
    Supports both Nucleus N and M motors so you can use it with small lenses and large cinema ones.  
    Pre-orders start on 26th. October.
    Price €199 for existing PBC owners and €275 otherwise.
    Nucleus M motor requires a separate adapter, price TBA.

    For anyone looking to have this functionality (and a bit more) without having to buy a specific new gimbal (or any gimbal for that matter), our AFX module launches a week on Monday.
    I'm absolutely not going to give the game away before then and say that it also supports manual lenses.
    Absolutely not going to spoil that surprise.
