  1. I'm really glad that I don't need a speedboster to get to s35 with this. I shot the bmpcc4k with the viltrox nikon g speedbooster which worked well, but I felt that it adds CA in harsh light while at the same time making my nikkors almost too sharp when stopping down a bit. Which didn't play well with the moiree of the 4k sensor. Moiree would pop up in fabrics or wide shots in grass or leaves. Very annoying. Plus I just feel better if there's nothing else between my lens and the sensor. Anyway, this is the camera I have been waiting for. Affordable S35 raw with good DR and decent lowlight! Have expected z-cam to deliver it first, but for me this is the better package. Usable without rig or external monitor.
  2. Sony just drag the moment they deliver a milc with better image than their FS line out as long as possible. A mini Venice for 4000 would be bad business for them.
  3. Maybe they should look at leica for innovative design. In fairness to Sony it has to be said that canon has been slinging the same old tech every 4 years, while Sony at least updates their models to the latest and greatest. But of course this frantic pace is silly and I would feel unappreciated as a Sony customer if my cameras worth drops 50% each year. But seriously, with the acquisition of Minolta Sony actually owned a great design dna. The alpha mount cameras slrs are great to use. Remember handling one and thinking, damn, that handles better than my nikon. But then Marketing decided that the only mirrorless advantage they could sell is smaller size. That's where they are still stuck. And they can't let it go, because its the only differentiator they have. And I think something similar to apple and imovie Pro happened. Wrong department in charge of a redesign. The a6xxx series feels like an apsc point and shoot. And the a7x series feels like a point and shoot with an evf bolted on.
  4. Try a real film camera, that will make you question any digital pro or consumer. Seriously, I recently used my hasselblad with Kodak portra and had real color prints made about a4 and the results were so beautiful it made me laugh with joy like I have never with any digital photo or print. It makes me really sad what a downgrade in color reproduction and contrast handeling all the digital toys brought. And here we fight about wich canikony is better. They all still pale next to the real thing.
  5. I do. He slaps a film convert preset on them that makes all colors orange and thinks it looks cinematic in slow motion. Well, it doesn't and it looks awful.
  6. I can't tell if this makes the a7s3 more or less likely. It is pure marketing not to include 10 bit and higher bitrates. But does it mean the r series will never get serious video specs, or the whole alpha series will never get it. And that the a7s was a mistake like the original 5dmkII and the video will never get beyond that. Not unlikely scenario. So if an a7s3 comes all it'll bring will be 4k60p 6k30p 10bit and 400Mmbit h264? Sounds likely for Sony now that we were told to expect an explosion today and all we got was a 20mpix upgrade. Not that I am interested in any of these cameras. I just hope that raw on nikon z will be good so I don't have to get the sigma.
  7. My hackintoshes were always a pain to set up, but once they run they run. Just NEVER update the OS! :-) my first one was going for 5 years straight without any issues, upgraded cpu and OS last Fall, no problems since. Extremely reliable. Running an 8core xeon and a gtx780. can play 4k dngs in 24p in resolve. Basically the performance of the 2013 mac pro for very cheap. That's all that I need. Am still editing prores and grade in raw later.
  8. The A73 is the first and only mature MILC. That is reflected in the sales. And it is mostly bought for photography by enthusiasts. Using tamron lenses my guess. Would be interesting to see sales numbers for lenses, that could be more telling. I think those are the numbers that canikon are looking at. They are lens makers after all. Unlike Sony who are makers of electronics. Nikons problem is that nobody who bought a nikon in the last 5 years for photography will get massive upgrade from going MILC. their dslrs are still sufficient for the casual shooter. Simply no need to upgrade yet. Another 4 years maybe.
  9. So where is that raw announcement?
  10. i dont think canon cares what nikon does. nikon did it because they have nothing to loose. canon care more about their eos line. also raw is not that of a big deal for most. a good compressed codec, fast turnaround, thats what most want. and thats what canon is good at. but i was wrong on panasonic going fullframe, so maybe i just lack imagination...
  11. i dont think canon will give anybody fullframe raw with dual pixel af for 2400€ even if its only 1080. tweet was a typo, now they fixed it.
  12. hi andrew! thanks so much for the material and your efforts. to me it seems like the creamy look you describe has more to do with the lens used. but i have to say i really like the colors of these FF panasonics. neutral but not clinical. all the daylight shots i have seen so far had a very realistic feel to them without beeing just technically right. there´s something about the contrast and the colors the camera produces that put me in close contact with the images, they involve me emotionally. hard to put in words, but somehow theres a nostalgia in them like they were aiming their color response on a film emulsion where the shadows lean slightly towards blue. good to hear your´back, can´t wait for your upcoming comparisons. i´m in the market for a raw camera and am very curious about what nikon can achieve with prores raw. it will be more expensive than blackmagic, but if its a nice image i´ll go that route i think. do you by any chance have a BMCC or BMPC4k lying around? i´d love to see a comparison between those and the pocket 4k. i really like the texture and grittyness of the older blackmagics but i hate how they handle and how the image can fall apart if you are not careful.
  13. Andrew, I'm impatiently waiting for your pocket4k review! Can't wait to see what look you get out of it! 8k should give us nice HD, so why not!
  14. respect andrew! it takes a lot to admit to a mistake, even more so publicly! i know you get a lot of abuse for putting your honest opinion out there. amzing work over the years, please keep it up! i come here regularily for your opinion which is usually against the grain which i enjoy!
