  1. This thread is fascinating. If anyone is running a recent version of the hack, what is the state of live view when recording while cropped in 3x (for C-mount lens shooting)? Is it smooth, or choppy? If it's choppy, can live view be improved by shooting without raw, but rather than high-bitrate hack (if capturing the 3x crop is even available in that mode)? I am currently weighing the pros and cons of picking up an EOS-M (shoot in 3x crop mode with ML), an M50 (cropped 4K + 1080P crop), or a Pentax Q (probably not) for playing around with some old 16mm film lenses. Just making sure that I have all the facts.
  2. Had it at one point and it was good, but ultimately replaced it with the Olympus 35-70mm f/3.6, which may be sharper and doesn't rotate when focused.
  3. I post this in another thread, but it might be interesting to those reading this one as well:
  4. My friend dropped by this afternoon with his new a7Rii, so we did a quick test against my 5Diii (Magic Lantern Raw) which seems relevant to this discussion: PW: shootout Just as when the a7S came out, I am still happy with the image (and pleasing skintones) that I can get from my 5D3. For those of you who take issue with my methodology, please feel free to post your own tests.
  5. We're sorry that you weren't satisfied with your viewing experience. Please contact the manager for a full refund.
  6. Regarding noise between the Canon C100 and the 5D Mark III (shooting raw), I did a body-cap ISO test with both of these cameras recently, and applied the exact same curves to both (to make the noise more visible. To really see them properly, you'll want to download the originals:
  7. Stellar work! This was the creepiest film that I have seen in a while, and I think that it would be for anyone with an imagination. Acting was great and sound design was superb. You should be very proud of this! How did you accomplish the slow push into the tape recorder? Motorized slider?
  8. I'm not sure about the Mark II, but I always use Data Import Utility to import files from my Mark I. If I don't, sometimes I will have a small interruption between longer clips that span multiple files. Data Import Utility combines these spanned clips into single files. This may have been corrected in later versions of Premiere but I still do it out of habit, and I try to avoid working with spanned files whenever possible.
  9. That's really funny. Great work. Don't break it to C. Suizo but he kind of looks like Aaron Rogers.
  10. ML Raw Compression Ratios (5D Mark III; 1080P) 10-second clip Original MLV: 872MBRawMagic Compressed CDNG: 466MB (47% reduction)Davinci Resolve ProRes4444XQ: 479.2MB (45% reduction)Davinci Resolve ProRes4444: 316.4MB (64% reduction)Davinci Resolve ProResHQ: 222.9MB (74% reduction)Davinci Resolve ProRes422: 92.2MB (91% reduction)
  11. It remains to be seen whether the BMD Video Assist supports pulldown removal like the Ninja Blade, which may be an important consideration for some (i.e. C100 shooters).
  12. Here's Dan Chung's take on it: http://www.newsshooter.com/2015/09/10/steadxp-kickstarter-launched-next-generation-image-stabilisation-unleashed/
  13. I still don't get how the stabilized frames aren't incredibly blurry but to my eye, they aren't. If this works as advertised it will be incredibly useful. I backed it.
