  1. Exactly what I said (-still) when I saw our first test with the GH2/Lomo in the streets of Lyon with Alice, our lovely and sharp First AD: And the final trailer was representative of the film: Again, THANKS TO ANDREW and everyone in the EOSHD community who inspired us to take the leap with the GH2/Lomo... and supported us as we tried out Driftwood hacks... and finished the film!!
  2. Hey Andrew, Just saw your video, and wanted to reach out and say I hear you mate. I get it. Completely. You helped give me the courage and insight years ago, way back in 2010, right?, to bust out and make a feature with a GH2 Lumix/Lomo. Total creative explosion that was, making Mandorla. You led the revolutionary charge, Commander. And one of the best times I’ve had shooting was the day we shot our anamorphic Lumix/Lomos in good ol’ Buxton! Hang in there, mate. You’ll suss this out. And everybody here will stick with you, whatever you decide! Keep us posted. Looking forward to a pint on the otherwise of this abyss!! Onward! Roberto
  3. Well, that would be a little disappointing, and not what seems to be true S35 coverage in Anamorphic mode.
  4. Does anyone know the mm height of the sensor being used in S35 Anamorphic mode? If it's 18mm with the firmware update I'd be happy.
  5. If I make a pilot for a show, with my own gear, and that show is picked-up by a platform, be it Netflix or others, then yes, Varicam and beyond is within budget, as is the whole crew surrounding it. Until then, exploring a look, professional workflow, and most of all story, all with my own gear, matters.
  6. I didn't see Z Cam listed on Netflix approved camera list here, unless I missed something? https://partnerhelp.netflixstudios.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000579527-Cameras-and-Image-Capture For buying a camera at this level this list is a factor, at least for me. I also like how Panasonic leverages their higher end (Varicam) camera tech for models like the S1H. After having a string of Panny bodies going back to the GH2... I honestly like how Panasonic keeps their menu system and nav around the camera working consistently and evolving well (so far). I hope I will be able to get ProRes Raw out of the S1H with a Shogun...hopefully we'll know soon. In any case, I agree, Z Cam is a poised to disrupt... just not yet for me.
  7. Nice work. Good to know these kind of results are possible. Have you guys used/considered vintage cinema lenses to get a vintage cinema look, rather than softening in post or adding texture? As sensors get larger and sharper, especially those that support 4x3 anamorphic, I'm curious, if not excited what the images will look like with vintage anamorphic glass. I'm hoping 1, that vintage glass with a PL mount with cover an LF sensor, and 2, that a LF sensor will help compensate for how slow (~T4) vintage glass often is.
  8. Thanks D, inspires me to get out and try some more tests, especially at night. Ideally, I would add a GH5 and use it handheld, keeping my GH5s in it's cage on sticks. ; ) Maybe I'll sell my old GH4, which I hardly ever used (I kept picking up my GH2).
  9. That's the ISO space I prefer being in, settled around 400, stay under 1600. Interested to do more testing now. Thanks, tweak.
  10. Perhaps, I really do like the color, and will be sure to shoot the next test in 10bit! For ISO, I'm wondering if it's best to stick with 800 or 1600 and let the 'dual ISO' do its magic from there? I like the freedom to ISO roam, for the clip here I had to drop the ISO down to 160 because I had an ND3 filter on (bright mid-day, ND6 would have been better). I hope the 'dual ISO' works effectively at whatever the setting?
  11. Well, that's ok, I'm hoping the low-light performance will pay off on (typically) slow anamorphic lenses. We'll see!
  12. Thanks, tweak. I just noticed the scroll bar on the menu... now I see all the other anamorphic settings, 10bit 4K 4:3, etc. Didn't see any for 6K as yet, which might be due to the lower megapixel count than the GH5?
  13. Finally went for a springtime hike with a friend and took a moment to do a 4K 4:3 anamorphic test shot with my GH5s and an old Lomo 35mm squarefront. The vintage "scope" look that came through was enough to warrant more tests in other conditions with other lomo lenses. But first, some questions to the EOSHD anamorphic legion: - is there really only one 4K 4:3 anamorphic setting on the GH5s, 3328x2496 8bit ? - recommended algorithm for processing into a video editor like Avid Media Composer (I have 8.9.1 running on a 2013 non-4K iMac)? I'm ok with bars on a 16x9 window but also like the idea of a proper 2:39 video as well sans bars. Will look to upgrade my editing system once the workflow is better understood for 4K. - other GH5s anamorphic footage out there? Thanks, Roberto
  14. Thanks, Jon. Just got my GH5s last week and wanted to know more about the audio features. Good review. Looks like I may need the DMW-XLR1 as well.
