  1. I’m using the 7artisans 35 1.2 for Eos-m, super small setup and pretty awesome lens for the price. Though I think I’m going to get the Viltrox adaptor and Tamron 45mm for the stabilization. I can say that the rolling shutter is a lot better in the 3x3 mode... in 3x3 mode (1736x1158) the rs shows a percentage of 57% (however that translates), whereas 1x3 mode (1504x1920) shows 84%. It seems to get better the lower the resolution, which makes sense of course.
  2. https://vimeo.com/312472183 Here is something I shot yesterday using the 1x3 mode, video comes out as 1500something by 1920 (4500something by 1920 after upscale). Tried my best to not move too much bc of the rolling shutter.
  3. He mentions in the YT comments the ML settings he used, 3x3 mv1080, which I've used before on this camera... The highest resolution comes out to something like 1736x1120... So HD one way and almost HD the other way. Unless he picked a different aspect ratio, but either way it's never full HD.
  4. I've been playing with these new ML settings the past few days, pretty cool. Not sure its really fair to call it 4k or 5k, since its really shooting 1/3 of the Horizontal lines and then desqueezing at the end, basically anamorphic without the anamorphic lens. And lots of rolling shutter. But still a very nice image, and for $160 (what I paid for my camera recently) insane deal.

    I WILL be getting a Fuji X-T3!

    I dont understand these comments about the X-T3 feeling like it could fall apart. Ive owned tons of Fuji’s as well as Panasonics, Sonys and Nikons, ove never felt the Fuji were somehow cheaply made. I think this is just becoming troll central.

    EOSHD's best and worst cameras of 2018

    I had the little Osmo camera for a week, it sucked. The gimbal part was ok, as was the active tracking when it worked correctly, but the sensor itself was awful- every shot, something was either blown out or too dark.
  7. The places would be ebay or http://fredmiranda.com/forum/board/10 If we are, in fact, talking about the M8 (which is 12 years old, so kind of an unfair comparison), I have never, ever seen one for lower than $1200, anywhere, and that one would be jacked.

    How do you have some graded HDR test clips shot from the X-T3 when the firmware enabling HLG HDR recording hasn't come out yet? Also, why not just export from Resolve as Prores 4444 and then convert to 10bit h265 in something like Handbrake? That's what I do.
  9. It needs to be sub $900 to be cheaper than Leica? A brand new M10 is $7000, a used one goes for $6000. Even an old, underwhelming m8 goes for, at best, $1500 these days. What are you talking about? I'm not saying that this is going to compete with an M10 of course, but where is your number coming from? Several camera brands already offer this automatic uploading of photos to the phone (Sony has for years, and if I remember correctly, Panasonics can do it too). I never used it bc it seems dumb, a good way to drain your phone quickly and always jpgs, no raw. I like how you refer to evf as 'traditional' when compared to an optical vf! People spend thousands on Leicas that don't have evf or, in some cases, screens. I don't think this is aimed at the average soccer mom or dad who would be happy with an A6500. This is for someone who actually loves rangefinder cameras. People don't buy an X100 so that they can use its efv.
  10. I missed it, it this a proper rangefinder in regards to focusing? That would be the selling point for me, as I'll never afford a Leica.

    Well, I don't believe I was ever able to play back, in real-time, my GH5 400Mbps H264 files either, pretty much every 4K file I've ever had from all my GAS cameras has had to be optimized/proxied/prerendered in order to edit, it not an unusual step to have to take. I can remember having to do it in FCP 1.0 with miniDV footage as well. If people's Resolves or Premieres are crashing from footage, they're probably either using cracked versions or there's something wrong with their computers or gfx cards.

    All these complaints are dealing with aging computers.

    Anyone else with the silver version notice how easily it seems to scratch? I've only had a few weeks and just noticed two scratches in different spots on the top end, have no idea how they got there. Never had anything like this on any other cameras I've had. I'm guessing this 'Silver' is different than the X-T1 and X-T2 'Graphite Silver'?

    Can I have the 1D when you're done there?
