  1. "half of them fake and the other half only there to look at wedding dresses." ??? Joke aside, you're right about that kind of dishonest influencer comments, but you know what? real professionals or true enthusiasts just ignore those guys and know who to listen when looking for opinions.
  2. You just can't go wrong with any of these cameras, just need to work on the weakness of each one, the most important thing is to keep a nice balance between image and sound, you need to get your light right, your sound right, nice B-roll and nice interviews shots, preferably with two cameras. I'm pretty sure that you can get a lovely image from any of these cameras, I used an Om-Em5 like 4 years ago (lovely camera btw) for a pilot show and worked perfectly fine, now I'm using two GH5 and a Sony a7s with 4k video recorder, mostly when I need a lovely full-frame look or a low lighting situation, but coming from the GH1 and now the GH5 and after using differents cameras through all these years, I can't leave keeping recommending the GH5/GH4, not only gives an image that works for almost all 90% of our video productions but something that for me is essential in the field, and is reliability, it works all the time no matter the situation, I just can count with the Lumixes, are very versatile cameras, well built, nice size, excellent options for video and audio recording. Photo image quality of the GH5 and the OM-EM1 MKII are very similar, maybe the autofocus tracking system on the Oly could be more reliable. Enjoy your production.

  4. Maybe Sony was waiting to see competitor guns before announce this, I hope can compete against the XT-2 with improved build construction, ergonomics, heat dissipation, earphone jack and IBIS, just as Cinegain says, An OM-D E-M1 MKII with ASPC sensor.
  5. My opinion: -A Sony FS100(used), nice image and audio support this give you a great 1080p image in a relative small package. -A GH4 with a YAGH interface. But if the LX100 image is enough for you then just get a external audio recorder as the Tascam DR70D or DR60MKII the form factor is very helpfull for small cameras and sync in post always use a clamp sound between takes for easy sync.
  6. As far as I know, Macs can use Cudas too.
  7. I'm Mac/PC user, but I really don't like Imacs, if the form factor suite you take a look on this: http://www.digitalstorm.com/aura.asp 34" screen, better specs (configurable) and reasonable price. Or go for a used nMac Pro, it can be found online from $3000.
  8. The "new mac pro" is very portable, I'm using this, when i need go to work outside home http://www.casecruzer.com/apple-mac-pro/mac-pro-monitor-case.html Or you can check out this guy did: A friend of mine do something similar but with the wacom Cintiq.
  9. I used the Canon FD 35-105mm f3.5, pretty good and almost parafocal.
  10. I do really love the Olympus OM series, they very small, light and well build. I have a FD series too but I do prefer the look of the Olympus.

    Sony a6300 4k

    My big concerns with any Sony camera is the overheating and the LCD screen protector than tend to degraded on some cameras.
  12. A s35mm sensor with m4/3 mount is available in the JVC LS300 camera, so, yes, still a posibilty. But i don't think that Panasonic take that route, but yes the GH5 need to make a huge step forward to compete against Sony offerings. 2.5k RAW recording, 13 stops, clean 3200 ISO and in body stabilization is what I'm waiting for the GH5.

    Sony a6300 4k

    Sony never mention to include "Heat dispersion" in their products, I wonder why
  14. Someone knows if the Fs5 apply some on fly correction from the generated distortions of the 18-105mm f4?
  15. Choose which you feel better, both are great tools; I'm a Adobe user but FCPX has been improving over the time and i really like the interface more than the Premiere Pro but I'm already used to Premiere. In your case my recommendation it go for the FCPX because is a lot cheaper and at the end both make the task.
  16. It would be nice if Andrew could do some test of this (if has the time obviously), because he has access to both (Shogun and NX1).
  17. I'm actually very interested in external 4k recording with the NX1 but with the Video Devices Pix E-5H that is a little cheaper and smaller than the Shogun.
  18. ​This is the spirit.. LOL. ​Well, if only I could make more improvements
  19. I have a 4,1 going to 5,1 soon, 32GB RAM, added a 6GB GTX 780 powered by a external XFX XTR 650W power supply on top of the Mac Pro, 2 Crucial 1TB SSD in the DVD bay and 4 3TB Western Digital Black Scorpion in RAID, a USB 3.0 card and a 6TB external drive for backup. Next upgrade? two X5690 and I'm done
  20. I never see Samsung as innovation company, more like a some sort of Copycat. They see what other are offering and then decide to improve or add more options just because they can.
  21. This has been the only video were i can really see the dynamic range that many people is talking about on the NX1: But damn!, how's people like too much black lately
  22. By the way, someone knows if a EVF will be available for the NX500, the NX20 has one, a optional one, so i guess that this could done, right? because this camera is killing me but no EVF is a no-no to me.
