  1. Hi, I have a brand new unopened Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k that I bought from B&H. Still in it's wrapped plastic seal from B&H so obviously it includes everything that comes with it. I am thinking/considering going a different route with my camera gear and looking to gauge interest if anyone is looking for one. Let me know if you're interested.
  2. 3k anamorphic mode on the mini!! why not on the pocket cinema 4K? Any ideas, anyone ever asked black magic?
  3. I experienced a lot worse with my Z 6 than he did and yes it does hunt but mine is just piss poor. And I did my test in 1080 24p not even 4k! The AF-F with mine didn't work most of the time. I had to use the back button AF to get it to focus. I will not use mine either with AF and Nlog, but comparing mine to his AF performance with Nlog and 10bit, it looks like his is almost usable. I guess I could have added that it does hunt a little. I have had the A7III for 2 months and used the Canon 5D IV for a week so I have some reference in term of AF performance from other competitors to compare the Z 6 with.
  4. This guys is not having the same problems we are having, how come? It looks like he has Nlog on.
  5. Like you that's what I'm asking myself too. They are talking about video AF and he talks about eye-AF coming, does that mean also available in video? Do it Nikon!
  6. Interview with Nikon guy. At 5.48, they start talking about video AF and the nikon guy mentions about eye AF coming. I think someone mentioned that it works fine with the Z 7.
  7. Yes with the filmaker's kit they should see that it doesn't work and better fix it because it makes no sense especially if someone (content creator) buys it only to find out that video AF sucks when connect to the monitor and shooting 10bit Nlog. Frankly, I much rather prefer the good video AF and Nlog over the ProRes Raw, it's just a nice to have if you ask me. Otherwise I will be looking at Sony's A7S III when it comes out. I am not holding my breath on the Panasonic's S1 video AF. So Nikon, get video AF on 10bit Nlog working and I will be a happy camper!
  8. The eye AF is a feature from my days with Sony A7III that I didn't think I will miss that much on my Z 6. I am very exited for this one and I hope it works as good or even better! Dear Nikon, fix the video AF on the Z 6 when recording externally with Nlog turned on or conversely, make sure that video AF works well while recording ProRes Raw. Add exposure meter when shooting video and lastly improve low light AF. Do all those and you sure guarantee that will I keep my Z 6 till hopefully when the second generation of the Z bodies come out.
  9. Good thing I saw this post cuz I was just about to place an order for their 50mm F1.8. I can confirm this too. Z 6 video AF don't focus for shit when recording via external recorder and 10bit or 8bit and Nlog is on. This would have being a deal breaker for me if I knew it before I buying the camera. Nikon better fix this soon! All my future purchase of any Nikon product is put on hold until they resolve this problem. How can we bring this issue up to Nikon? I am starting to feel like I should have gone with Sony. Let's wait and see what the A7S III will bring to the table. I still don't understand how it will work on the Z 7 but not on the Z 6. I tested it with the 24-70 lens.
  10. $600 for G2X with Nucleus Nano!! Black Friday deal? Please who's selling this, that's a great deal!
  11. I received my Z6 the other day and this is my quick first impression and usage after 2 days. Before I pre-ordered the Z6 I rented the Sony A7III and used for a month and was considering buying it. The Z6 feels very solid in the hands. You immediately get the confidence you can use it in any weather condition without worrying too much. It fits well in the hands. The EVF and screen in nice, big, and sharp. The buttons have a nice feel to it. The menu; a lot simpler than the Sony. I have to say I am fairly familiar with Nikon menu system from past usage but if you were to give both cameras to someone who has never used a Sony or Nikon before, their learning curve on the Nikon menu system will be fast. Within 30 mins, I will say I was very comfortable with where everything was on the menu. I only have the 24-70 f4s lens and I am quite impressed with that lens and the IQ I am getting with the Z6 and that lens. Even more impressive is the low light with that F4 lens. This camera may turn out to be the king of low light with other cameras at that price point. Video AF; sorry Panasonic I am so happy for you for your latest firmware update on the GH5/s but Nikon completely beat you at video AF on their very first attempt on a mirrorless camera! It’s quite impressive, I dare to say on par with Sony. Moreover, you get face detect AF when shooting 4k! On the video side of things, this camera is very capable! Of course, it doesn’t have the advanced video tools the GH5/s has but for most of the hybrid shootings I do, I will be ok. I wish this camera had is eye AF like Sony and better tracking when shooting stills. Eye AF is quite handy and useful when it works. There is quite a latency with this camera with what you see on the LCD and EVF, worse than any camera I ever used. I am still testing to see how long the battery will last compared with my time with the A7III, but I don't think it will measure up to the A7III. Overall so far, I think Nikon did an ok job with their first attempt in the mirrorless world. Are there things that need improvement, most definitely! For my kind of hybrid shooting, I think the Z6 will keep me going for a while. One last thing, I like their mobile phone and camera app (Snapbridge). The only camera that compares is Panasonic. (I have tried Fuji, Sony, Panasonic, and Nikon) It still amazes me how camera companies still haven’t yet made communication between the camera and mobile device effortless. Off to more shooting and testing.
  12. Anyone familiar with or have used Feiyu Tech gimbals to comment about their quality? Another gimbal option for the BMP4K I just stumbled across is the Feiyu Tech AK4000 and I am actually considering or the Moza Air 2.
  13. I recently found and bought a kowa B&H 2x from a local camera store. I am not very knowledgeable with anamorphic shooting but all I know is I love it a lot! What's the difference between 16mm/35mm and 8mm anamophic scopes? Does that mean if I were to get the ProtoDNA, it will not work on my Kowa? I really like how the breathing is well controlled on the ProtoDNA compared to the core DNA.
  14. That too or also the Zhiyun crane 2 but I have used a gimbal with the slanted design a couple of times and I prefer those. I am leaning heavily towards the Moza air 2 because it's a little lighter and cheaper for more payload and features than the Ronin S. I don't see zhiyun doing anything anytime soon to address the P4k balancing issues on the Weebill Lab plus even if they do, I don't see it being in the market anytime soon. I am sure they will say get their Crane 3 which for me looks too big.
  15. This actually look really good! I like the music too. Did you do work in post to minimize breathing compared to the previous core DNA or is breathing improved in the ProtoDNA? Is this going to replace the coreDNA? The link of your write up doesn't work.
  16. Are you powering the camera via the 12V DC input? I can't really see from the picture but what battery is that?
  17. I like the Zhiyun weebill lab for it's small size, shape and weight. It would have been my perfect gimbal for the P4K if it balanced without counter weights and if the video transmission function worked with the P4K (This camera will benefit quite a lot from that functionality without it's tilted screen). But clearly at it's currently state it's not a match for the P4K. Zhiyun have to redesign or make a version for that camera. At this point it's either the more bigger Zhiyun crane 3 lab, Ronin S or Moza air 2. Moza air 2 is the cheapest of all 3 and so far works with the P4K. I hope Zhiyun can make a version of the weebill lab for P4k soon!
  18. Video of the BMPCC 4K on the Moza Air 2 and the Moza iFocus. My only issue with it is, the gimbal by it self weighs 1.5kg!! Who's selling this with the free Moza iFocus?
  19. Yah referring to the electronic vari ND. I was wondering same thing too, and maybe it's some exclusive Sony tech. I still hold some hopes that Sony is gonna surprise us and include it in the up coming A7S III.
  20. My understanding is the Creator package has just a controller but the Master Package has the CMF-04 servo follow focus with the controller.
  21. I don't know why they will say that too as I am eying this gimbal for the P4K especially with their follow focus. I guess I will keep waiting and see if that's possible when the gimbal get's released.
  22. You are right, fast glass on APS-C can produce the FF look. But I have used MFT, APS-C, and full frame cameras to shoot on many different projects. My favorite photos were those taken on full frame, I found myself liking that look a lot.
  23. Very true, that will be a great product especially for the BMPCC4K! I will pay them even the $1300 for that. But my guess is the high price they will have to charge for it might not generate enough sales.
  24. Got it! I was talking about the vari ND thinking that's what you were referring in your original post. I have been researching their current vari ND and I hope they also have a new version coming or in the works to address some of it issues. Even though I don't have one, I know I will appreciate it's ease of use especially as I always shoot on location in really sunny environments. How I wish a camera manufacture will include vari ND in the body of a mirrorless body.
