    Last two are at f/2.
    Maybe.  But 16:9 for video should be a little bit better.
    Two more f/2 here, shown different focus point.

    Tested this Zeiss lens with 100mm/f2 taking lens on FF camera.  Is it OK?

    dahlfors reacted to mercer in An adventure into the Panasonic GX85/80 begins - and a look at the Leica Nocticron for Micro Four Thirds   
    So, I had my first go with the GX85... awesome little camera... well worth what I paid for it.
    I have to adjust Saturation a little. On my monitor, the levels look fine, but when I watch it on one of my TVs, it is definitely over-saturated. I am going to try lowering my in camera saturation a tick or two. For this video, the in camera settings were... Contrast -5, Sharpness -5, Noise Reduction -5, Saturation -2. I'm going to try -3 and -5 next. I used FilmConvert for correction/grading. And the music is by Kevin McLeod.

    Enjoying this cam a lot now after getting used to it over the last couple of days. Bought the 15/1.7 & SLR Magic 52mm Vari ND. Nice combo. Amazing little lens.

    Super annoying!
    But it seams that I found a fix:
    You just need to open Terminal and paste the following line: defaults -currentHost write com.apple.ImageCapture disableHotPlug -bool YES

    To reverse it back to normal just paste: defaults -currentHost write com.apple.ImageCapture disableHotPlug -bool NO

    dahlfors reacted to Ed_David in #WeTrumpHate shot on Red MX - and why old cameras are good, and the defense of the ultra con   
    Shot this on the red one mx - 
     
    The Red One MX - dynamic range is not there, but it has a look, some kind of unique look - not like film, not like the alexa, but it's own look - older but its there - something nice, kind of like the what's that camera from China - the Kinefiniti
     
    shot with red zoom lensses - 18-50 + 50=150 plus ultra contrast 1 - man that flares nicely.
    ultra con gives such amazing flares - where have you been my whole life.
    So screw new cameras, get an old used camera and mess around with it.
    shot at 640 ISO, 4.5k , and that's it
    11 stops dynamic range, 10 stops?  who knows, who cares.
    it works - it doesn't overheat.  it doesn't shoot slo motion unless you crop it but the motion cadence feels right, not like a videogame like the dragon or weapon or slimer new camera they have.
    find its weaknesses, find its strengths and shoot some stuff.
    don't be afraid to go into the past and be made fun of, and who cares, just work with your camera as best as you can, and make mistakes constantly and try to get better.
    lord knows how i screwed this one up, i should have done more wideshots and had more variety of poses of people

    As a designer, I've actually been surprised quite a few times by non-techy creatives and business people making really good looking stuff - and quickly - with Keynote. It's excellent for presentations and presenting ideas.

    dahlfors got a reaction from Bioskop.Inc in Monitoring Headphones Recommendations Please   
    I have AKG K271 MKII: http://www.akg.com/pro/p/k271mkii 
    These are the best easily driven closed design headphones I've found. They work fine with my camera and laptop. They are a bit heavy to drive for my old Nexus 5 phone, but they still work with that combination. Hence I think they'll suit just about any DSLR / mirrorless.
    Been using them for 2-3 years, and I don't have anything to complain about the audio. Frequency response seems very well balanced for monitoring.
    Another plus side is that the cables are easily replaceable, and you get them delivered with one fairly long straight cable, and one coiled.
    They are not super-light, but I find them comfortable. I work in front of a computer all days, and these usually sit on my head all day long.

    Anything by AKG - lots of different price ranges, so you can go for the cheap £50 ones or up the price. Quality is outstanding, far better than anything mentioned here, even the cheap ones. Found them due to an end of year round up from a magazine called What Hi-Fi a few years ago & haven't looked back since.
    Would also suggest you test your sound with something really bad (speakers, TV, Phone/Pad or whatever), just so you know how your sound holds up with the worst option available - not everyone watching your stuff will have a top of the range ....... (fill in the blank) & sound can change dramatically depending on what device you/your audience is using. Good sound should transfer to whatever is available & not just good stuff.....

    Impossible - in what country?
    I have all my photo equipment insured (up to a value of 10k or 15k euro I think). It can get stolen, I can drop it from a roof, into the water etc - and the insurance will cover it. All I will need is to prove that it's been in my ownership with a receipt or such.

    dahlfors reacted to MattH in Sony a6300 Bad Edge Aliasing   
    It's a well known artifact with sony cameras.  Referred to mostly as 'highlight aliasing'.  Google 'highlight aliasing' and you will find many hits.  It is a lot more egregious in HD than it is in 4k but its clearly still there. Aparently It was even apparent on the f5 and f55 but was addressed and removed on those cameras.  On other cameras like the fs700 it wasn't addressed.  However, people observed with the fs700 that it could be bypassed with Raw recording.  Go and look at videos shot with sony cameras. Now that you have seen it you will notice it everywhere!  Even in cases were you can't see it obviously it still alters the overal look of the image as a whole, making it seem over sharp and less organic.  Its a big contributor to sonys reputation as giving a video look.    The good news for you is that it is smaller in 4k and in most cases people wont notice it.

    dahlfors reacted to Andrew Reid in DPReview BANS links to EOSHD!!   
    I am just a guy with an independent voice in the world of camera reviews without hundreds of cozy ties to people from the manufacturers, without ads splattered all over the screen, without sponsors on my every video, yet still I find EOSHD mired in a world of cut throat rivalry. Only very occasionally like in the beginning with DPReview have I been given a leg up in this industry and even then it only takes one person like Barney to massacre that relationship too. The other blogs like NoFilmSchool, Cinema5D and NewsShooter spend 10's maybe even 100's of thousands of dollars trying to punt my homebrew EOSHD site into oblivion and I just find the whole thing utterly distasteful. Rather than offering a new talent an opportunity they instead I am treated like just another commercial rival to be beaten.
    In the end it is up to you guys to choose. The managed platform of platitudes and advertorial, or the honest opinions and educational books of an artist/filmmaker.
    May the best guy win.

    dahlfors reacted to Django in Sony A7SII colors suck!!!   
    Forum members, I just thought I'd point out that this guy is the founder of a questionable Polish militia "boot camp" facility which trains French civilians to semi/automatic firearms & combat warfare (which is illegal here) around a clouded political agenda that seems to cover up under anti-terrorist legitimacy. He is here asking questions as no French videographers (to whom he referred to me in another thread in french as "hipster faggots") seem to want to be associated with his borderline propaganda activities . I'm all about freedom of speech, but I just thought you guys should know who you're helping out here.. not exactly your ordinary fellow videographer..
    As for the A7S2, it's color science & S-log. I often here it berated here and it isn't the easiest cam to work with and S-log does require advanced grading skills .. but in the right hands I've seen some really superb work done on the S2 and it sure packs a lot of punch in such a small package (and price compared to the FS5).. and this is coming from a Canon guy!
