  1. Hey guys! Any idea what is causing these glitches? They were once extremely rare but now they happened a few times in the same video:
  2. Looks very nice. Love the rendering
  3. Wow! So much depth. I can feel the spaces in between the objects
  4. We live in an age where a little Fuji gives cinematic results when you pair with the right lens Anyway I am uploading both images. The warmer and brighter one is the Sigma. Same WB. I THOUGHT I had the same F-stop on both lenses but they look so different that I probably had the Sigma at least a stop higher and didn't realise. I will have to do a test carefully to be sure!
  5. Yes it is contrasty. It also rendered the colours very differently from the Sigma ART 18-35... so much so that I was shocked. I can post the images if you're interested. I don't think I had a filter on the lens for the interior shots-b ut if I did it would just be a Hoya CPL. As for the camera, it's the trusty Fuji X-T3 on a Ronin S
  6. Yeah, totally agreed! But there is something about this lens, it renders so nicely. It really looks 3D in certain shots (I know that the lens is only part of the equation, but it's still a big part!)
  7. Ok nobody guessed and maybe I was being a d*ck by playing a guessing game- so the lens is a Zeiss Distagon ZE 35mm F2.0 ❤️
  8. I've found my favourite lens ever guys. Totally has surpassed the PEN-F 38mm f1.8. Can anybody guess which one it is? Hint: it's a Carl Zeiss made in Japan
  9. For me, the real problem of RS is not the skewed lines during pans but rather the jello effect during handheld or moving car footage
  10. https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/press-text-sony-develops-back-illuminated-cmos-image-sensor-global-shutter/ That's good news
  11. Interested to see what is the final solution here
  12. Wauw that is such a huge screw-up haha. How the hell was that approved? So going by that scale a full frame sensor will be the size of an iPad
  13. I think the first shot with the A6500 was a bit out of focus- because the second shot at higher ISO seemed much sharper to me.
  14. The heavily moderated boards are always the most boring ones anyway
  15. Does anybody here have both an A7SII and an A6500? I know that the latter is a little sharper, but how do they compare when it comes to S-log, quality of the image, etc? Is the A6500 rolling shutter so bad that you can't use it on a gimbal with fast moving shots?
  16. I learned a couple of things from this thread. Sandbox explanation works. I also like the explanation that S-log sacrifices colour information for detail and highlight retention. I feel like smoother highlights and shadows is more important than colour for the majority of scenes. Thanks guys!
  17. You don't need to change the levels manually while recording. If you are recording in 24bit then you have a lot of headroom. Just make sure the loudest level that you are recording isn't clipping the converters. Clipping can be heard as harsh digital distortion and seen as the red light on an audio meter. What you need is compression during or after recording. I'm not sure but I would guess your Tascam would have a built-in compressor, but you can probably get better results by using software compression in post. What a compressor does is takes the quiet sections and raises them up, and the loud sections and squashes them down. However this can sound bad if the quiet parts are so low that the compressor drives up the noisefloor to distracting levels, so you need to make sure the voices are all recorded at a moderate distance from the mic. If you want I can edit your podcast for free, send it to amroth@gmail.com. Tell me what software you use to edit your podcast and I can advise on a free/ cheap solution for compression in post.
  18. Yes but even so, you'll get better results with the latest software (even in realtime) over whatever they put in that yamaha!
  19. I hate apple keyboards, even the older one is a POS. I use a 2015 iMac at work and have to suffer every day because I use Pro Tools and the function keys are very important. With a regular keyboard the function keys are nice and big and are separated in groups of 4. So tired of hitting the wrong key over and over again. I will probably have to buy a keyboard just to restore my sanity while working on intense sessions. You'd think that they only make their MBP keyboard shit because they are chasing thinner and thinner bodies. So now they decided to cheap out even more and make the desktop users suffer too! Haha, [deleted]
  20. Oh indeed, I should mention that when I got mine it was $650 and my ex-fiancee got it as a birthday present (since then I was married for 4 days before divorce, and had to pay her over $20k BUT I DIGRESS). I don't know why they put the price up but I definitely wouldn't recommend getting it now at $850. The MixPre3 is indeed cheaper, much newer etc. Also I record music and the output latency on the USBPre2 does leave a little to be desired... By the way, if you want cheap but great quality, then check out the Audient iD14. I have that and it punches waaay above its weight in terms of pre-amps and conversion!
  21. USB Pre2 is awesome, but mine got busted. Need to get it fixed because it was great. I liked it so much I even put it in my music video haha: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzMQMRVvdtk&t=2m18s
  22. Music (and poor vocals) will certainly not be to everybody's taste. And to be honest I did rush the mix and edit to make the deadline for a youtube competition... But other than that I hope you guys find it amusing nevertheless!
  23. http://www.ebay.com/itm/291931537146?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT I use the Meikon underwater case since 2012 for my NEX-5n and it's still going strong! Never a single drop inside the camera.
  24. Looks nice! I like the smooth automation. Wish it was a little longer though, like 50% longer
