  1. Hmm will try tomorrow. I downloaded Resolve to give that a try. Smooth as butter. No problems whatsoever with the native 10-bit files. Just as I expected, it is a software / codec thing. Either I 'make the change', or your trick or something else silly (not meant bad) will work in Premiere.
  2. Thanks! I tried that and indeed, the files playback smoothly! Still trying to figure out the Premiere problem though. I'm downloading Resolve now to see if that makes a difference. Just trying to rule out any hardware inefficiency.
  3. Yep. Updated today. Didn't make a difference. It is a gap but 6GB should be plenty for just previewing a single clip on a 1080p screen. And what about the other telltale? VLC player crashes when opening the files on the laptop, whereas on the desktop it plays it just fine. I don't believe that you need a better GPU than a 1060 for just viewing a clip on VLC player. Also, the laptop handles the 4k 8-bit h264 files just fine. They are also 150 mbps (same) and it playsback without any framedrops. Even 3 clips on top of each other on the timeline are no problem.
  4. Hi guys, I have a weird problem with the 10-bit mov clips from the GH5-s. I have a desktop and a laptop with very similar specs and performance. The desktop has a Ryzen 1700 with a GTX 1070 ti, the laptop a i7 8750h and a GTX 1060 6GB. Both have an SSD, the same version of Windows 10 (64-bit Home) and the exact same version of Premiere. The desktop plays the 10-bit clips without any problems in both VLC player as Premiere and cuts through it like butter. The laptop is a different story. VLC player (same version) acts very weird upon importing and crashes. Premiere can't handle the files as playback is horribly slow and choppy. The CPU and GPU don't fully work as I can see in diagnostic tools. 8-bit 4k files however are no problem and editing is as smooth as can be. I know that the 1060 is a bit less powerful than the 1070 ti but it should be more than capable for just simple browsing through the footage. Mind you, even the preview monitor can't handle the files. Mercury playback is on for both machines. Copying the mov files to the SSD makes no difference. It seems to me like a software or codec problem, especially because even the same version of VLC player can't show the clips. Anyone know how to fix this? Would be appreciated!! Thanks
  5. Thanks! I have heard about them. But I can't find if they will work with this adapter. This adapter has a front filter ring (62mm) and is very different from the old projector kind of anamorphics which require a 'clamp' to hold anything at the front end. If anyone could shed some light on this that would be great.
  6. Hi guys, I just bougth an SLR Magic Anamorphot 40 compact adapter 1.33x. The 'near / normal' focus ring on the end works quite well, but won't let me rack focus from far to to near objects in one go. So for that I would need a single focus solution. Now I know that SLR Magic itself offers the 'Rangefinder' which would solve all my problems, but from reviews and sample footage I know that this thing really deteriorates the image quality. What else could I buy that would give me the abillity to have single focus (and preferably also offers closer focus) that doesn't impact the quality as much? The Anamorphot adapter has a 62mm filter thread. Is there a 'normal ' diopter that could just sit on the adapter 24/7? Or any other device such as the Rangefinder which would work? Thanks!

    I'm looking into anamorphic shooting as well now. I'm thinking about the Helios 58mm with an Anamorphot 1.33x. That would work wouldn't it? Seems like an interesting combination. What would the horizontal FOV then become if I use it with a GH5-s on a Speedbooster XL? Is math correct: 58 mm / 1.33 = 43.61 mm 43.64 mm *0.64 = 28 mm So it would be pretty wide with the lens 'effects' of an 58 swirly bokeh master. That sounds awesome. Has anyone tried this? Or will there be vignetting or even a black tunnel visible?

    Thanks for the extensive reply Kye! Ok so my best bet is to lookt at a higher number. The 44-4 for instance, or get an adapter which takes care of the aperture pin-problem. Are you using it with or without a speed booster or focal reducer?

    Hey everyone, I'm in the market for a Helios 58mm f2. I'm using the Panasonic GH5-S with a Nikon -> MFT SpeedBooster. I would really like to use the lens on the Speedbooster so the question is, is that possible and will it degrade the image quality to use 2 adapters on stacked on each other? Because I would need an extra adapter first to change the mount into Nikon right? So which version of the lens do you recommend me to buy? And with which mount? Does anyone use this lens with a Speed Booster and is happy with the result? Thanks!
  10. Because I have the Nikon version of the Speed Booster which doesn't have any electronic connection to the camera. Therefore I cannot use autofocus
  11. Is there anyone here with the GH5 / GH4 that shoots with the Sigma 18-35 on a (Canon) Speedbooster and can tell me something about the autofocus when taking stills? Is it accurate? And is which mode is it working the best? Would I be able to trust it for shooting stills? I shoot with the Nikon version of this setup now, thinking I would never need to shoot stills, but since recently I get asked a lot to shoot stills. And I love this lens / combo. Anyone who has tested it or could test it for me? Thanks!

  13. Nice Cantsin, looks very organic! Did you use Filmconvert or so for that?
  14. Hmm I should do some tests. I have never really thought about it using it. Maybe I should. They say there is no quality loss, just more noise at high ISO's. So, how would that work in terms of what it does to the lens and how it behaves? Apparently it is a 1.4x crop. Does it just use a smaller portion of the sensor? So the 35mm would act as a 49mm? And f1.2 becomes f1.7? Or does it work differently?
