    I'm happy to report the "crushed blacks" problem with X-T3 H265 files on 2018 Mac Mini (with T2) has been fixed in OSX Catalina. 
    I am back to editing HEVC from X-T3 natively in Final Cut Pro.  I am using a stock Mac Mini i5 with only 8GB memory and get smooth playback with the viewer set to "better performance".
    In Catalina the scopes show the lowest black levels being set at Zero IRE or above, whereas in Mojave the blacks were actually going down to about -10 IRE and but getting cut off at Zero IRE. (This was only a problem on Macs with T2 chip?)
    No need to transcode to ProRes and reset the black levels manually anymore!

    Xavier Plágaro Mussard got a reaction from Emanuel in Jinni.Tech vs. RED Part 4 (1hr long)   
    In fact, technology arrived to a point where most of us have cameras that have equivalent or better IQ that the equipment used in our all time favourite films. About the beginnings of RED I remember that a lot of normal videographers bought a RED camera + accesories, thinking they would become either Kubrick or Warner Bros. That was not the case. 
    Cameras are tools, I can't imagine carpenters talking about hammer or nails...

    I think part of the appeal of red is buying into the myth of Red.  And part of that Myth is that the CEO, Jim Jannard, is the Elon Musk of the camera world.  A genius badass disruptor.    When that myth gets lifted, with jinnimag videos, consumers, especially those who own thousands of dollars of gear, those who bought into the myth of red get upset.
    Especially in the past three years, when 4k is now the norm, and Red no longer has higher resolution as a selling point, and when cheaper cameras like the blackmagic ursa mini pro and c300 ii and fs7 can get people to an image they want for a lot cheaper.
    When Hollywood now primarily uses the Alexa over the red. It's almost a mythical choice.
    But yea, now as we find out how much of a liar and Barnum-like con man Jim is, more stuff like below will be discovered.
    When he was the CEO at Oakley, he was involved in the Lance Armstrong doping scandal. He most likely was a bully who "encouraged" his employee to lie under oath.  Maybe not what people expect in a leader.  The type of person who could point blank lie to several companies about the origin of his camera components and would have no problem manipulating his users. More of this will come out.
    And at what point will the myth of red vanish, and will cameras go back to just being cameras. Tools used to do a job or create art?
    Where camera comparison tests from CML have more effect on a buyer than the feeling one gets from holding a camera or if it feels like a status symbol?

    Xavier Plágaro Mussard reacted to DBounce in iPhone 11 Pro can record on multiple cameras simultaneously   
    It's a calculator... It's a pager... it's a word processor... What really is a smartphone? It's a computer with a bunch of sensors and transceivers attached to it. They are whatever the software dictates they are. One day the major camera manufacturers are going to catch on to this fact, and then we can start to reap the benefits of computational photography on a real camera.

    Nice thing is they kept sensors low resolution. I don't want my phone to make 25Mb JPGs.

    This is great news, whether you buy it or not. That affordable anamorphic lenses are hitting the market is a big deal and a sign of things to come.

    I literally just sold my BMPCC4K to get the Leica 10-25mm f/1.7. I figured the camera wasn't worth my hassle and I much rather have a convenient and awesome lens. 😄

    Since you obviously know exactly what's inside a typical Canon camera of this class, could you please explain what extra hardware is associated specifically with providing 24 fps frame rate video capture and encoding (that wouldn't also be used for 25p and 30p)?
    P.S. I'm a very experienced electronics design engineer, so I can probably understand the technical detail you might provide...

    Xavier Plágaro Mussard reacted to Cliff Totten in Canon removing 24p from new 4K mirrorless cameras - THE MEMES   
    Its not funny. A Canon rep told there is a legitimate reason for no 24p. He said something about the way the sensor is read out. He said that Canon wants it to operate at a perfect temperature. It runs too cold at 24p, but is at an optimum temp at 30p. It was done for the benefit of the camera.

    It doesnt make any sense for Pany to go APC-S L-Mount when they already have FF and M43 and zero APC-S lenses. It makes sense to make a S35 sensor with a M43 mount though.
