    Emanuel reacted to Al Dolega in Canon R6 Mark II Announced   
    It's my understanding that the S1H/R5C/FX3 fans aren't blowing into the interior of the camera bodies, directly onto the PCB: basically they blow across the outside of the rear wall of the camera body, which is mostly a heatsink, with its interior face connected to the PCB. So I don't see how they could introduce dust problems to those cameras, as the interior is still sealed (outside of the lens mount of course).

    Emanuel reacted to herein2020 in Canon R6 Mark II Announced   
    After watching this video I am still thoroughly unconvinced that Canon has solved their overheating problem with the R6II. Yes it did better than the R6 but that's not saying much. The R6II overheated at 4K60FPS in 40min with ambient temps at only 70F. 
    For the brief time I owned the R6 (3 days), it was shutting off around the 9min mark while just shooting a few video clips, scrolling through the menus, and taking a few pictures; and that wasn't even in direct sunlight or one of the hotter days here.
    I live in one of the hottest most humid states in the USA, no way would it last 40min at 98F and 100% humidity. I have managed to get an overheat warning with a C200 and the fan set on high while filming, so heat management is probably more important to me than to people who live in a colder climate.
    The R7 on the other hand has never gone past 3bars for me even when shooting in 105F degree temps with a mixture of 4K Fine, 4K 60FPS, and some photos/menu settings thrown in.  The C70 also has never given me an overheating warning.  So at the end of the day the R6II does have better specs in every area than the R7, but for where I live and the type of work I do, I will take a crop and line skipping any day vs a camera that overheats. I think the smaller sensor of the C70 and R7 really pay off when it comes to heat management.
    Interestingly enough, I have a diehard Sony shooter friend who lives nearby and she just got the A7IV and she said it overheated in the middle of a wedding within a month of her owning it; so its definitely not just Canon with this problem. BTW, that wasn't even the hottest month here, no idea what she is going to do for next summer.

    Just coming from here:
    Where looks like pretty obvious why a R5C makes sense to the world, at least to me or this complex film world : )
    Let alone the whole most frustrating saga signed by Canon with the R5 introduction and their overheating plot, since those 5D Mark II days...

    Emanuel got a reaction from filmmakereu in IBIS, OIS, DIS, motion-sensing gyro...   
    They're far to be the same method to arrive to the same outcome under much variable circumstances. What's your favorite method?
    Some food for thought here:
    OIS | DIS
    2nd sample
    OIS on vs off
    vs IBIS
    2nd sample
    ..."however neither will fall people into thinking that they're a gimble move"  I believe this quote on minute 04:57 resumes the whole thing anyway...
    BTW, here's an interesting article to testify why for some reason R5C has no IBIS at all:

    So it seems a lot of YouTubers are in Japan right now at a Panasonic event. 
    43Rumors speculates it's related to a partnership between Panasonic and DJI, re: Lidar AF. 
    It would seem to be a significant announcement though, given I think this is the first time they've flown people to Japan for an event in years (certainly pre-pandemic.) They didn't do that for the GH6 did they?

    This is the only test I can see that they did 8K25p and 8K50P rolling shutter, seems like same rolling shutter performance on 25p and 50p

    Yeah, 8K50/60P internally in RAW format only.  If you have PD-powerbank connect to R5C it will power the lens and AF as well.

    around 15ms same as 24-30p, 8ms 120p
    the above chart is misleading as it seems for photo not video, r3 is 9.9 in ff 24-60

    Emanuel reacted to markr041 in Sony FX30 (S35 FX3)   
    Ok, here you go - 4K 120P @1/250th shutter and ISO 2500 in very dim light (HDR😞
    Now, in these settings where there are bright lights as well as big areas that are dark, one has to expose to avoid hotspots, so darker areas will be noisier. In a more uniformly lit area, one can expose for the shadows and get less noise.

    Emanuel got a reaction from SMGJohn in WTH cinematic means or doesn't mean for such customary crap?   
    Something that really pisses me off is this mania of repeating the same "solution" (?) ad nauseam when something is coming into their empty hands...
    Before it was the shallow DoF from 35mm adapters and HDSLR introduction...
    Slowmotion came later and so on.
    And on and on.
    Now it is the 10-bit banding-free skies from people who look like to have found for first time the acronym DR, the word latitude or whatever they call it cinematic. Oh well.
    Please do not repeat it or no new resource will produce anything. First definition of cinematic.
    Zoom out. Forget the story, sound design and talent of the shooter's sample. The camera. Also. Because to be cinematic is much beyond that. More than resources, the way they're managed.

    Dunno, dunno... Is this actually bad?! Really?
    Well, no idea about y'all fellows, but I've had a few cases where the manufacturers don't even admit any faulty unit, just to not mention any QC issues... go figure! : P
    In a line, glad they did it : ) So I guess they've actually done it in the other way round to my book instead.
    Comes to my mind... sorta when a teen ignores the beautiful curves of the new chick on the block just to avoid how to afford the high expenses for courting her... LOL ;- )

    As far as I could understand, we strictly need external battery to reach 8K RAW LT 50p going with AF + IS but both work with RF lens (I guess with EF lens adapter too?), correct?

    To those who still complain on lack of IBIS...
    Here is a test made without it on the inexpensive RF 24mm f/1.8.
    It's not the R5C but just for the sake of it shows how it does the job done though, eventually more suitable than any wobble/jerky artifacts for poor handheld work anyway.

    Emanuel reacted to SMGJohn in 2022 AF & the Panasonic case but what about Fujifilm?   
    Panasonic should make a LiDAR adapter that just plugs into the hotshoe and firmware update to their 2018+ cameras and allow it to communicate with the DFD system, Panny boy would make a boatload of money doing that.
    As for Fujifilm, in my experience its marginally better than Panasonic, the GH6 is kind of on par with the XH-2 series cameras so long you have contrast and good lighting, problem with Fuji seems like they do not care, they did not fix their IBIS during video mode at all, still horrible, worse than Sony (hows that even possible???) and their AF performance is massively dependant on their lenses, absolutely terrible design if you ask me, a lens should never impact AF performance other than speed of transition thats mostly down to the motor in the lens. 
    Fuji cameras all seem made for photography specifically with video being afterthought, but then they release stuff like XH-2s which is a video beast if you ask me, its got the lowest rolling shutter of a semi-professional camera, shoots crazy good video apart from its 4k120 which is very noisy. 
    But then you get stuff like poor video AF and poorer IBIS.
    Whereas Panasonic nails the IBIS and are absolute feature beasts even their 1 inch pocket cameras are specced to the limit.
    Its soon 2023 and manufacturers are bent on making sure no one makes a camera that is jack of all trades, why buy new products when camera that does it all exist?

    The transmitter can record 40hr of audio (not the battery life) so if not using the wireless function the wireless go II is nice little audio recorders to put anywhere.

    (plus for focus pulling you'll usually want to use SDI wireless/monitors, otherwise the delay becomes too much via HDMI)

    Suitable for casual youtubers or cameraman on simple nondemanding / noncritical shoots. 
    There are many deal breakers with it:
    1) 2.4GHz
    2) low power RF
    3) no locking connector 
    4) no swappable batteries
