    On another subject, holy crap, 6k 10 bit 4:2:2 internal all-I.

    Where is it exactly? Never heard the S5 could do that.

    Anyway am I the only very confused with the recording formats? We can choose between MP4 and MOV (why?), then inside each container some options are with h265 some are h264 (why?) with no way of knowing what to expect.

  2. Sorry if my question wasn't clear.
    Considering the price of the L-mount native lenses I was wondering if I could get away with cheaper Canon/Nikon mount lenses + adapter to keep the costs down.

    Apparently this should be possible but with many limitations. Even the Sigma adapter has a limited selection of lenses compatible.

    I have a Tokina 11-16 ATX PRO Nikon F mount, I can forget about using AF-S with the S5?

  3. I'm not sure if they make adapters that also support OIS from other lenses, in this case will 6.5 stops work?

    So even dummy adapter make ibis work? well lenses in general... I remember in the old days Canon need an electronic pin to tell the camera a lens was mounted,

  4. Hello

    I'm back again and definitely ready to buy a new camera now. Almost 2 years have passed so I'm starting with different cameras to choose from.
    First of all I'd would like to say I don't make money with cameras or plan to, this is a just a hobby.


    Based on this https://www.eoshd.com/news/a-review-of-the-year-2020-by-andrew-reid/

    I'm debating between the Panasonic S5 e Fuji X-T4. I'm a sucker for low light video which the NX1 definitely was a failure at and I always dreamed of a Sony but Jesus is the A7S III is way too expensive for me 😞

    I have a few manual Nikon F lenses so IBIS is a must have.

    + full frame so better low light performance, is it comparable with the Sonys?
    - more expensive body and more expensive lenses, overall more expensive to "maintain"?

    + cheaper body and cheaper lenses
    - APS-C with low light performance compared to the NX1, no upgrade in this sense?

    Is there anything to add?

    Anyway what happened to the "cheap" full frame Nikons?

    What about a cheap used, but near mint DJI OSMO Action for 150 euros including a set of ND filters?

    I just happen to have one for sale and for sale for no other reason than I just haven't used it as I thought I would. Used it 3 times in total!

    I would be interested, where do you sell it?

    Is this a particular reason why you linked this? I mean did you try it? Seems worse than the Brave 6 Plus.

    Great fun and ridiculously easy to use. Not sure about the current price however. And fails the mic test. 

    That is more expensive than GoPro 😄

  7. Hello
    I'm not sure if you guys have any experience with these cameras (I don't!) but I would like to record "relaxing" videos of my bicycle rides and I was wondering if there's something cheaper than GoPro/DJI for this kind of content. Something similar to this guy 

    My requirements:
    - good 1080p30/60 or 4k30p
    - awesome IS, I want to put it on the handlebar
    - possibility to add an ext stereo mic

    Size is not that important, I won't be using on my chest or to record extreme bike rides. Just relaxing slow rides on asphalt or trails.
    The only cheap camera that I found as of now is the Akaso Brave 6 Plus, IS is not like the one you find in most expensive alternatives but I guess it could be good enough for my needs.

    Fuck, this camera is a glorious failure.

    It only hurts for me and other early adopters. The rest of you are going to get a bargain!!

    Why failure?

    If you live in Switzerland or near the boundary : Interdiscount website

    The Z6 + 24-70 f4s at 1782€ (today exchange rate) in a reputable store, til the end of the week !

    The same price as the Fuji X-T3 + 18-55, woah, crazy ! In 6 months, we will be able to buy one and enter the EOSHD cheap camera challenge ?

    Thinking about it, when the ProresRaw update will be available, it will be a damn awesome deal !!

    Too bad it doesn't ship outside Switzerland...

    Can anyone summarize what's all thing with Nikon being a failure, prices falling and stuff? I'm confused.
