  1. You could fix it using the built in tools in AE. Drop your footage into a comp; duplicate it so that you have two copies, one on top of the other; make a tight cut around the spots using masks, so there are holes on the top footage; apply blur on the bottom footage. You could use a plugin but I don't think you would get any better results. http://www.revisionfx.com/products/refill/
  2. I've never understood this issue people have with a sharp, clinical image. It only leaves more room in post. Here's a little something I did with Nick's footage.
  3. Upload all of your broken audio somewhere and PM me the link, I'll go through it in my spare time and let you know if it's salvageable.
  4. Looking good, especially Pocahontas. As impressive as the video might potentially be on the Leica M, I'm not sure what person would plunk down €6200 specifically to shoot video with it. I predict it'll serve more as a reason for people to request these features at lower price points. (pixel averaging, 4:2:2 subsampling, peaking)
  5. We must find this pocahontas and conduct some more thorough, extensive skintone tests.
  6. Honestly, I don't see this softness everyone keeps complaining about. If it was canon level of softness, I don't think there would be any doubt. Isn't this what we want though? People keep finding ways of degrading their footage considering how hypersharp m43 lenses are. I'm willing to trade off the multi-aspect sensor and a little sharpness for better color reproduction and no green tint.
  7. Oh man, that design. I would love to wrap my man hands around it. If what you say about the improved colours is accurate, that alone is a good reason to upgrade (for me at least).
  8. It should be noted that some scenes were shot with a Nokton 25mm f/0.95 and Hyperprime 12mm f/1.6 wide open. Some softness should be expected.
  9. If they have done away with the multi-aspect sensor, does this mean that video will have a 2x crop rather than 1.86x? Perhaps the sensor is slightly bigger to compensate?
  10. [quote name='jgharding' timestamp='1347573091' post='17934'] It is ;) You have to switch off sound recording in the normal Canon menus, then you can get to 2.8 or 2.9 with that card. [/quote] D'oh! Of course. Thanks for reminding me.
  11. I'm using a 64GB 95MB/s sandisk card, and I can't go above CBR 1.4. I don't see these noise improvements people keep mentioning. I really hope it's just me messing up.
  12. Man, am I glad I did not sell my 550D. Best of luck to these people.
  13. [quote name='thescene' timestamp='1347325966' post='17745'] Thanks for the info. One more question, about how long will the record time be using the unified hack with the 64gb 95mb/s? [/quote] I've never had my recordings stop, ever. Even when using driftwood's top settings.
  14. [quote name='EOSHD' timestamp='1346092981' post='16629'] I have a hard time believing any of this is good for the user. It limits consumer choice so much. [/quote] Not to mention UI programmers in general, it limits their creativity.
  15. It would probably be a good idea to wait for a bit; I'm sure we'll see interesting stuff at photokina. I was in the same position as you a few years ago. I made the mistake of buying a Canon 550D (t2i), which was more expensive at the time than the GH2 is now. I recall being very underwhelmed by the soft image and compression artifacts in the darker areas of the image. It's not like it was a detailed image with soft features or anything; it was just soft, period. Nothing filmic or cinematic about it. It wasn't until I bought a GH2 and had a look at the (unhacked) footage that it really hit home. I was awestruck by the amount of detail, and it was real detail, not digital sharpening. The only thing I would say that the Canon DSLRs have got going for them is the color reproduction. Canon colors look great, much greater than the GH2 when compared side by side. However, considering how much more I'm able to push footage from the GH2 when color grading versus the 550D, I'd say its a small price to pay. Another thing I'd like to mention is that even if you make use of the magic lantern hack in order to boost bitrates, it barely improves upon the footage from my experience. Even when using a Sandisk 64GB 95MB/s, there's only so far you can push it before it reaches full buffer. That has never happened with my GH2, and I use Driftwood's Mysteron setting that shoots Intra at 176 Mbps. The noise turns into fine grain, and the video mud is gone. But hey, do what feels right; perhaps you will enjoy the image coming out of the 600D.
  16. [quote name='jgharding' timestamp='1345192767' post='15871'] Holy radioactive lenses, Batman! :0 [/quote] The best kind of lenses! I like a bit of danger to go along with my work. And by "work", I mean expensive hobby.
  17. [quote name='apiece' timestamp='1345127522' post='15803'] humor....? [/quote] It got a chuckle out of me.
  18. It really pains me that they didn't decide to go with a m4/3 friendly mount. It's the only thing stopping me from throwing money at them. My wallet or income isn't big enough for me to stock up on EF glass.
  19. [quote author=Maxine link=topic=812.msg5848#msg5848 date=1338869540] Someone please tell Sony to stop making 60p video mode.Only soccer moms & dads will want this.And that is their market methinks. Where's 30/24P? It's just really annoying... [/quote] No one makes use of 60p as is. It's useful for slowing down your shots without having to interpolate in-between frames.
  20. Judging by your error message, I assume you're trying to open a firmware file that has already been patched with a setting. You require the original file from panasonic's website.
  21. [quote author=biginvegas link=topic=631.msg4647#msg4647 date=1335353927] [i]we go to the cinema to dream, not see things too clearly.[/i] Love that comment by the way. Andrew and y'all, you've all lost your minds. We are living in the cinema digital age generation, it has begun... this is  fun , I love reading about new technologies, latest camera and equipment designed to make that picture of yours just a little more cinematic but you have to jump into the deep end of filmmaking, sharks and all. Work with what you have and use the look from the specific camera and lens [i]you own[/i] to tell your story.  There is no Hollywood, broadcast bias or cabal  telling you your shit 'aint good enough because it was shot on a GH2.  They don't care, they want authenticity and courage from you. This film in Berlin last year was shot on a 7D, one lens, a monopod, crew of one, zero budget. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCBRhgic2Jw The filmmaker lives in Calcutta... My point is Andrew, can you use this unique platform of yours to mix it up just a little! [/quote] Amazing. Seeing things like this makes me wish I too was able to get a foot in the door.
