  1. yes - but now thinking about the Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 lens - and that adapter.. f/1.8 would suit me better in a low light conference setup.. for reach about 135/150mm I guess and still have clear image zoom if needed in a pinch right?
  2. bad news is those without fans but using external recorders are also reporting over heating without recording incamera.. so fans it is.. bunch of guys over in max's private a6300 facebook group (1300 users already) have already started hacking their a6300's with tiny fans.. first couple of guys are getting 1.5hrs straight no over heating ( they run out of battery and memory at about 1.5hrs ) when they attach tiny maglav fans like this ( sunon maglev GM0502PFV2-8, DC5V, 0.4W as shown) . user reports " it's actually surprisingly powerful, and runs directly from 2 AA batteries making the bu
  3. yeah I'll second that ! been looking at https://vimeo.com/user803551/videos dl'd a few did my lut's in fcpx - looking NICE AS. I've spent the last five years shooting with RX100mk1, a 550 and a eos-m mk1 on my doco here in china.. finished shooting that now, this year I'll be doing a few conferences around the world so I'm thinking of getting two of these - one with a wide and one with a Sony E PZ 18-105mm f/4 G OSS for close ups of the speaker.. i wonder how this would go?
  4. from max : Yup. If it's one clip your talking about in particular or the most it was shot with 85mm 1.4 Gmaster which is equivalent to about 130mm so hand holding that focal length without optical stabilization is not good smile emoticon I shouldn't have used the clip but was in too much of a rush to chage it. Copied from video description: This is a rushed video made for a competition. Video could be no longer than 2 min and I finished it 3min before the turn in cutoff. No color grading or correction done, straight out of camera. And a lot of thing I would change if given just 15 more
  5. yeah good on ya!... now that asshat will learn some lols.. i dont believe anyone unless they have the camera in their hands then show the darn thing off as you would !

  7. take another look at how the JVC super35 chip in a m4/3 mount actually works -
  8. HI Jimmy, just wondering what your thoughts on the new Black Magic drone camera are ? https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/blackmagicmicrocinemacamera/expansion peeps are saying stuff like "I think some of the big points for us are: Global Shutter, RC control - including lens functions, Compact package, Interchangeable lenses - not a GoPro or DJI style camera Expansion interface which the controller can interact with, and they will publish the specifications. Speculation on my part is it looks like it could be balanced aerodynamically as well the weight distribution. " and talk about
  9. I've been playing with a couple of 1min h.265 clips downloaded from a friend who has a NX1. these 1min h.265 4k clips take 20mins to convert to prores LT on my 4yr old macbook pro 17" 8gb ram. upgrading to a newer macbook will happen when apple release a haswell chip version... so still waiting for that. i shoot 3x cam, multicam interviews, which normally run about 15-20mins.. so thats 20mins x 3 which means about 24hours of just converting before i can start editing.. plus at least another 30mins of footage of b-roll.. example here of what i do http://youtu.be/w9iG_FuUtZI --SO... I'd love s
  10. what a pita.. i'm working on a doco in China ( pal ) and from Australia ( pal also ) - my multicam interviews rarely go over 20-25mins however i do get the odd corporate event that i'm obliged to shoot also.. so that means running about hitting start/stop of different cams, start one five mins after the first so that gives me five mins to walk over to the other cams etc.. pita i tells ya!.. vity needs a hack out asap haha :) - and yes you can say go grab a camcorder but wheres the fun in that ?!
  11. none of the reviewers hands on has answered two very simple but important questions i feel i would want to know -1. whats the internal battery run time when shooting video - 2. whats the actual recording time limit, 29.59 minutes or non-stop until the battery or card runs out ? - thank you
  12. guess its time to update your story :) '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> sweet eh ?.. wonder how this changes peoples minds now?
  13. yeah and the other 40+ 4K imaging devices due on the market this year..
  14. http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/press/pressdetails?releaseID=58775 yup - this changes everything :)
  15. rx10 from page 3 video samples v's rooftops on the a7, same bloke i think shooting this one also - making the rx10 look bloody good in this regard.. fine detail is a different story though.. wheres the real video samples showing what this thing can really do inteh right hands ? someone / anyone ?? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oh3dKWglaXQ&feature=share&list=UUTTbWzYZZ-xxQecXddaqQ1w now how good does the RX10 look eh ?... perfect for interviews me thinks.. :P
  16. I bet you can’t zoom in, focus, and then pull out the way you can with real cine zooms... maybe on the wish list for very few of us, but we can dream on can't we?! I know Cine zooms are designed so that focus tracks during a focal length change, and still zooms don't, but if SONY was really serious about this being a video cam, couldn't they of at least teased us a little haha.. most of my work is talking head interviews, so I will be adding this RX10 to my kit, maybe two if it works well enough.. at the moment I'm using RX100 ( org) and my old canon 550d and a borrowed black gopro3 for
  17. I've been using the 550d ML for daily interviews and the 3seconds lost footage as the video spans is very annoying. however most of my interviews are going for over 45mins so 3seconds lost video every 12mins is grr. question is - after 29mins what happens here? does it span ? is there lost seconds? and how long does the battery last while recording video ? my budget is extremely very low/non-existant! - I've been in China now for three months shooting this self funded documentary on my own coins and have not earned a cent this year at all - so every coin saved helps these da

  20. [quote author=jcs link=topic=611.msg4413#msg4413 date=1334899678] [quote author=Sara link=topic=611.msg4406#msg4406 date=1334891961] Opinions will differ on skin tone I guess, but to me those are good for a Canon 5D but still waxy / videoish / and very cheap looking.  I watched them on an Eizo ColorEdge CG245W. [/quote] How do we simulate plastic in CG- we make sure there is no sub-surface scattering, don't render fine detail, and use a simple Phong model for specular highlights. Rendering realistic skin requires modeling sub-surface scattering and a sophisticated energy-accura
  21. To be fair the look we are seeing here is entirely in the hands of who ever grades it now, including sharpness as RAW is totally flat and unsharp just like our RAW red and Alexa footage... Who cannot see someone's film like this and have a comment anymore.. It's all about weather the grader was good, the lighting tech was good, etc etc... All that comes into play now :) All your doing here is commenting on this guys grading skills now lol.. And commenting on sharpness is pointless, too much sharpness and the model will hate you forever ! Sharpness is part of the grading process so
  22. Now I'm wondering who will be the first to hardware mod this baby? Hacksaw off the tube, and bolt on a 3rd party m4/3 lense mount..I can see some enterprising dude make a nice niche for himself right here until BMv2 comes out in a year or two with a m4/3 mount as standard... So who's good with a hacksaw?
  23. Does the red REC button on the front blink when recording? I hope it does :)

The main reason is that they now will prefer to focus on Super35mm."[/quote] I would have to say that your source obviously has no clue as to the reality then.  As the AF100 is selling as well as its competitor and there are no plans to take it off the market. ...
