  1. If you want stable footage, the DJI Phantom is the easiest route! And Egypt is a great place for drone flying, don't think I am trying to avoid you to learn!!! ;-) The best way would be to get the cheapest drone you can, to train with it. Better to crash a cheap drone. Then when you are confident, you get a better drone! Good luck!!!
  2. Linux is only free if you value your time 0$ per hour. You will need a lot of hours to make it work as you want!
  3. linux for creative people already exists, it's called Mac Os X!
  4. From a drone pilot pov your post reads like this: Guys I've been offered money to give a violin concert. Which is the cheapest violin I can buy that I can give a concert with? If you want drone shots, get a drone pilot or someone with RC model experience, at least! A Phantom costs 1300$, it will cost you 3000$. for that money you can fly someone with experience!
  5. ​ You must tell us more info of what you were trying to achieve!
  6. If you get the Tokina you are getting a nice APS-C lens collection!
  7. Looks really promising. For those in doubt between this and the RX100, I bought one RX100 mk1 and it wasn't really well built, it took a little bump and it has suffered from them. It's prosumer at its lightest. So if you need your cameras to be even a bit tough, you seem better fit with the RX10...
  8. Fredrik, your video looks great and it's clear. If your video is just a recipe, only thing it lacks is the text for what ingredients/measures are. I love simple things and in a recipe, the simpler the better. Some movements can add some fun, but are not necessary, not in a 50 seconds video recipe. Then you can think you want to go a step further, so you need some environments, some props, maybe a sexy voice over, some sound effects, etc. the sky is the limit! ;-D
  9. Drones are not toys. To disturb firefighter planes with your drone you must be an asshole.
  10. they are point lights, 99% of your talent will complain about the one in front of them!
  11. I have an LX100 and I am happy with it. As long as you don't need a long zoom, it's cheap, tactile and light, while offering great IQ.
  12. ​Nobody could describe it better!!! LOL!!! I can't understand how someone could spend so many hours programming something that is so complicated to use... Advanced CC is not easy anyway, but the learning curve in Resolve has no easy-in!!! ;-DD
  13. If you are proficient with FCP X, I can't understand why change NLE system..... Motion tracking or CC can be done with plug-ins!
  14. Heat comes mostly from the sensor and the processing, both things are done either recording internal or external. I never had an SD card warm because it had recorded many hours!!! ;-D
  15. Did you try to record 29 minutes?? If it worked did you try to record another 29 minutes?? Very few cameras with a big sensor can do it! Most of all will give you a temperature advice and stop recording. If you need to record a whole day, think about a little sensor camera!
  16. Get a Panasonic LX100 and think about your video skills, instead of your lens collection!
  17. I can't understand why this new lens doesn't have optical stabilisation!!!!!!!! :-( It would go in half of the gimbals of the world!!!!
  18. Kit lenses are "near worthless", but it is always good as a backup, if you need IS in some situation. I would avoid the 14-140mm and get the other cheaper kit lens. It will cost you near zero and it's a lens you may use more than what you think!
  19. Samyang doing anamorphic 2x versions of their FF prime lenses!
  20. The camera/firmware race is great! The real problem, and I really have little hope for a solution, is that normal people can't jump from/to a Sony, Samsung, Panasonic, Canon without having to rebuild a lens set. Adapters are OK sometimes or too expensive. For the price of a Metabones adapter I can get a LX100!!!
  21. ​Because to be able to record continually, they would need to be more like a RED than like a mirrorless!!! Heat builds up!!!
  22. ​In full frame you get the full "problems" of your lens. Since most of us loves lenses more for their defects than their "clean" quality, a full frame camera gives you more "optical defects" and less DOF. In a cropped sensor, only the center of your lens is used, which is the more correct optically! Sorry for my english!
  23. It's incredible that someone on Samsung financed and approved that shortfilm!!!
