  1. Any IBIS would be an improvement over non-IBIS X-T3.
  2. Interesting, the X-T3 with 10bit All-Intra beats the A7iii. Wasn’t someone just saying it was the other way around, and laughably at that?
  3. I sold my Sigma FP last month after deciding to go back to the one I missed the most, the X-T3, found one used for $800. Fast forward a few weeks later and the first X-T4 rumors pop up, have to turn around and sell that 3. Not, mind you, because I need the latest and greatest (clearly I don’t since I went back to a year-and-a-half old camera), but an X-T3 with IBIS (let alone maybe higher resolution) is too good to pass up and what I’ve been longing for since the X-T3 first came out. Fingers crossed that Feb 4 is the day 🤞🏻
  4. Yeah, I haven’t shot raw since my days of the original BMPCC, and I will say that being able to change white balance after the fact is the best thing in the world. Just wish their was good hybrid that also did raw. Z6?
  5. Honestly, I might just go back to one of the cameras I had before this, with E-M1mii or X-T3. Even the cheap G9 with its newest firmware is sounding good. Obviously not 12bit raw quality from any of them, but usability has taken on a new importance to me I think.
  6. Take a look at rawshooter’s above posts, they encapsulate my feelings pretty well, on the stills sides. Even on the video side, I’m not liking how unforgiving and easy it is to clip the highlights, I feel like the dynamic range isn’t all that great as things end up really dark if you’re trying to save the highlights, and even though the raw is great for recovering those shadows, I feel like it’s coming out darker, straight out of camera, than it really should be. Maybe it’s user error, but I’m not seeing a great dynamic range.
  7. If anyone of thinking about buying one, mine is up for sale- https://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1627124/0?nc=1#15084662
  8. Which means there’s not really a reason to assume that the camera is coming any day now.
  9. This is mine, which works great- https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07H9FVN3B/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_4Cq9Db25WQWGD
  10. Btw, I got a slim SSD enclosure along with a Sabrent 1TB NVMe SSD and it works great, just need to figure out how to attach it to the bottom now.
  11. Sorry, yes I don’t know what I was thinking, I meant SigRAW or FPRAW, basically proprietary “raw” like Blackmagic.
  12. FPLog, or SigLog? Whatever they want to name it, but something similar to Blackmagic’s BRAW? That’s a workaround, right?
  13. Oh yeah, I didn't even know that was a possibility- I want an answer to this too, having to manually add then layout the audio separately is a pain in the ass.
  14. What resolution/crop are we talking about here? Because even now as I google it, everywhere I look I’m seeing it written that’s it’s as I remember it, either a b&w 7fps liveview, or a vertically stretched one. Is this something that was implemented recently? Are we talking 1:1 crop or a binning mode? I’m not trying to question anyone’s truth here, if what you say is correct, I’d be interested in giving ML another go. Yes, I realize the EOSM and 50D pale in comparison to the 5D, I only mention them to explain my usage of Magic Lantern, which is pretty similar across all compatible Canons, just better resolution and framerates (and apparently Liveview too) for some than for others. But they all can do dual iso, 14bit, etc, just to different effect.
  15. Looks very nice, though I have to say that I don’t think this video shows particularly good dynamic range, though that could be the grade on it. But yes I know, you’re saying the FP doesn’t seem to show much more than this, if any improvement, I agree. Canon’s sensors aren’t typically rated the best, at least DXO-wise. Well going from upscaled 4K to actual 4K is an upgrade. (And I know a lot of people say 4K doesn’t matter to them, but even if you only care about HD, 4K downscaled to HD will certainly have somewhat better dynamic range than native HD, if the sensors are close). The last time I used magic lantern was maybe a year ago with the EOSM, and many years before that with the 50D, and I’m sure it’s a much much better experience with the 5D than that little EOSM camera, but the thing that drove me crazy and made it kind of unusable for me was the fact that the real-time preview during shooting was either a significant center crop or, if you wanted actual framing, the preview dropped to a low-framerate, B&W preview; both versions made it significantly hard to both compose and stay in focus. Is the 5D able to give a good real-time preview with proper composing?
