  1. Thanks

    Sorry for the late reply. Been out of town! Yeah, laughed my ass off too when she hit the ground :D. Thanks, bud. These little cams have got so much to offer that it's a shame they're discarded like some kind of antique relic from the past. I personally find them more enjoyable and more satisfying to use 
    Yep, I used Magic Lantern. My personal setting is 1.3x bitrate. I've found this is to be the best balance between image quality/file sizes for my needs. I don't see the point in creating big file sizes for minimal difference in quality (especially if uploading to YT, Vimeo etc). 
    My profile isn't intended to be compared with Cinestyle or Marvel. For me it was more of a case of trying to create something like a -6 contrast option with a smoother transition between shadows and highlights. Pushing the 8bit codec in these Canons just produces muddy/noises images that I personally think is not very pleasing to look at.
    You'll def see the difference between Prolost and my profile. It's def worth checking out if you're looking for a little more wiggle room in your image.

    Thanks. I used a Carl Zeiss 25mm prime lens. Ask away, man. I have nothing to hide!

    On the lens debate - 'crappy', 'different strokes for different folks', 'opinion vs facts':
    There are a lot of optically superb native M43 lenses. For example the Olympus 12mm f2.0 (Zuiko Digital or so). Had better reviews than SLRM 12mm f1.6 (less distortion, sharper at wide open, less lens flare). 
    But was not a manual lens. And (my opinion) you should prefer a lens with a good and big focus ring. A 12mm was a 35mm equivalent on the old Pocket, the 'reporter wide'. Now a 16mm (Sigma 16mm f1.4) would be a 30mm. 420 €. Easy choice.
    I own the 18-35mm Sigma (once for Nikon, now Canon, swore to never sell it again). Had it with the Pocket MB speedbooster then, made it a 30-58 @ f1.0 (!!!). Practically never changed the lens from then on.
    Speed booster Viltrox is just 160 €, will make it effectively a 24-47 @ f1.3:
    Easy choice.
    Don't need to go wider, but obviously need a longer lens. Adapter without speedbooster? Didn't look into that, but why not? 
     
    Opinion on adapted vintage lenses: good, but you need to become an expert. Don't expect good old lenses to be bargains anymore. People became smart.
    Opinion on slow lenses: no. Anything below 2.8 should be considered 'crap' for this kind of camera. This is no Sony.

    It would be nice to have the option to exclude it, but at the price I don't really care. If the camera were 2,000 with resolve then I might be a little more upset.

    Exactly flip 21.  And you get the Studio version of Resolve free (just like they did with BMCC).  At 1300, that's a bargain!

    I fervently agree. I am as excited as hell for this camera... even though I’ll wait until they’re readily available to buy one.
    I was just trying to make a point that it’s possible that this camera’s specs, specifically high ISO, won’t live up to the expectations. These, all BM, cameras have quirks and issues like magenta casts, fixed pattern noise, black hole sun, deadlines not being met... so I hope people are prepared for this instead of jumping on board and expecting something this won’t be and then spreading hatred because their unrealistic expectations weren’t met.
    I mean, hell there are already posts questioning and hoping for great AF... I can tell you right now... it won’t be good.

    I think its mis-named a bit. I get why they went with pocket, but it should be a Mini Cinema cam or something - unless someone has messenger bag sized pockets.
    @Djangosaid RIP GH5 - but its more like RIP GH5s IMO.

    I think it looks kinda rad. Don’t know how I feel about external Raw only... but the price will dictate my feelings on that one. Anything over $1500 and I’ll pass for now. At a grand, I’m in.

    Nice shots you did mercer, especially kaylee - I really like the Ansel Adams feel to it.
    Here are my shots with b/w in it w/ BMPCC - Sigma 19mm and Cosmicar 25mm lenses.  I've always wanted to do monochrome stuff.  They're so nostalgic.

    YES!!! what a good topic
    i LOVE b&w photography, thats how i started, shooting 35mm black and white film  ive made many b&w darkrooms in closets and bathrooms lol
    frankly, dealing with color is WAY harder than shooting b&w (so many variables!) – b&w should be really freeing~! i think most ppl will find a HUGE amount of room to play in post, since you can fuck with hues and exposure like crazy to get a cool b&w image. although id love a dedicated b&w camera, having the color data to play with in post can be quite interesting
    i would love to make a b&w feature! anyway heres a few shots i took the other day that i ~chose~ to treat as b&w bc the color was so meh... much better!
    *i would recommend listening to the song low desert by r.e.m. while viewing these pics

    As anybody who reads my comments already know, I bought a 5D3 last Spring and instantly fell in love with the images I was getting. After almost two years of searching for the right camera for the stuff I was looking to shoot, I found it in the 5D3. 
    But...
    I am the first person to admit that the post process of ML Raw can be a little tedious and requires a massive amount of storage. Since I am a hobbyist with narrative dreams, I’ve been searching for a second camera to shoot fun little vignettes in between shooting days with my 5D3. Shooting is a form of meditation for me and instantly calms me.
    After a couple of cameras, I ended buying an RX10ii on the cheap. Now I had the camera last year but struggled with getting good color from it. This time around, I’ve decided to mostly shoot in sLog2 and Cine2 with monochrome and I am pleasantly surprised by how good the images turned out on my first outing with it.
    I’ve always loved B&W photos and movies, but I’ve never really shot much with it, so I look forward to learning and experimenting more with it.
    Now, I have been posting around here for a few years and color science, correction and grading are all popular discussions but there is rarely mention of B&W.
    Does anyone shoot in B&W anymore? Does anyone have any video or screengrabs that were captured in B&W or turned to B&W in post that they’d like to share? Or even strong opinions for or against it?
    I’ll start off with a few screengrabs. The first two were shot in sLog2...


    And this one was shot in Cine2...

    I've always enjoyed Matt's work and he's always come across as a genuine guy who loves what he does. I find it hard to think of another person who's shared so much usable information  about cameras, lighting and techniques with downloadable files for FREE. He doesn't need to do that. It sounds like a genuine mistake on his behalf. It's just a shame that there are so many people/creatives out there who are ready to be Judge & Executioner at a drop of a hat. Maybe they should concentrate on working on their own issues rather than projecting it onto someone like Matt. - B.

    Hey, Jay. Sankor 16c Anamorphic Adapter paired with a Carl Zeiss 25mm Prime. Shot at T2.8. The key is to shoot at ISO 800 which really is the "sweet spot" for these cams, especially in low light. The LUT is a huge help too   Best - B.

    What lens setup did you use, both anamorphic/taking?  Good shots you did.  How did you manage to get it to pop in low light (f-stop)?  Thanks for sharing.

    The specs actually do look to be pretty solid, but it's priced far too high. Unless you really need the higher photo burst speed (and can live with the loss of V-Log and, presumably, unlimited recording times), I can't see much reason to go with this over the GH5.
