  1. Still have my GH5, what a camera it is. Since, things have moved on and the GH6 must have something unique up its sleeve, as the A7S3 now exists with 4k120p 10bit for a bit more money. If it was $1700 with an ND system? Bingo.
  2. I enjoyed it, thought it was thoroughly enjoyable. The thing is, the audience doesn’t care about vintage lenses and dead pixels. Only a tiny niche of people do. Sure, the shallow aesthetic was noticeable to me, but that’s only because my eye is trained to see it. But I thought it looked quite “dead eyed”, and complimented the theme of the film well. Also, this was a film where you come to see very powerful zombies fucking shit up, and it does that very well. I personally don’t want to see deep storylines here, I want to see the chief zombie riding a zombie horse and causi
  3. Wow, this doesn't really follow the "blockbuster" upgrades the GH series is known for. Who would buy this when you can get a GH5 for very little money? There's barely a difference. Seems bizarre. Although the A7S3 is more expensive, it has amazing 4k120fps in full frame with stunning low light and great DR. They have to make a compelling offer at half the price of the A7S3, and this isn't even close.
  4. FOR SALE - Canon C70 w/accessories I don't want to have to do this, but I'm selling my C70 (team I work with are on Sony). It was bought in the UK from CVP in November 2020. Near perfect condition. Includes: C70 body and all original accessories it comes with plus Canon EF to RF adapter 2 additional batteries I'm not desperate for a sale, so not letting it go on the cheap. But it's perfect for those who want additional accessories and to save money on a brand new one. £4200 I can ship on request, and can accept bank transfer or Paypal.
  5. Honestly, I think you could ignore camera releases for this year. 2020 hit a benchmark with so many great tools at more affordable prices.
  6. You've got the wrong end of the stick. I was asking what laws people like yourself needed so much, that we couldn't get before? What did you personally have no control over being in the EU? Why can nobody just provide a simple explanation? I guess we'll just leave it as that a these questions seem to be impossible to answer.
  7. I don’t agree that the Remain argument was snobby either. We’re certainly not snobs. I just found it to be more factual, basing most of its argument on what will go wrong (Project Fear). The Leave argument is like a feeling of patriotic inspiration experienced after a speech by Farage. “We can make our own laws” blah blah. What laws? What laws do you so desperately need in your life that the evil EU have stopped? Then the response.... “we want our country back”. Back from what? Why can’t they tell us, factually, what they want back? I just want a simple, everyday explanation of gett
  8. I agree with the behaviour from the Remain camp, who in a lot of ways were just as bad as the woefully dishonest Leave campaign. It muddied the waters - which I believe is a strategic technique used by Dominic Cummings, called the Ooda Loop. But the bigger culprit in this “muddied waters” is technology, namely the truth twisting on social media. What is actually true? What is right? Honestly, I think these days a lot of people can’t speak for themselves and will just recite a series of memes they’ve seen and base their truth on that. I went the Remain route, as brushing all th
  9. The Covid contracts have had similar treatment. Same old story. Im still waiting for somebody to give me a simple explanation as to why they voted Leave or jumped onto the Tory vote. I guess it doesn’t help when the low educated gather their news from memes. The sharing of “information” is a shit shoe of the truth. Some people don’t like to admit it, but I think it’s immigration. Foreigners taking their jobs and all that. Will Brexit / Covid / Dominic Cummings’ eye test kill filmmaking? No, because artists are going to get more pissed off, grab their cameras and make films to
  10. This. It is important a country is in control of itself, certainly. But I’ve yet to hear any real, tangible day to day benefit of leaving. What will I benefit from by walking out the door, and going about my day? Can someone tell us please, without going on about the political funfair and it’s system? Where’s that £350mil a week for the NHS for instance? Every visit I’ve made to the hospital, for whichever reason, is unbelievably long. Can’t we fund it properly so we can cut down waiting times, more people get seen and have a higher chance of survival? It’s those things that mat
  11. I think of these things in the most simple terms, such as, what impact will it have on my life, and what has happened? Simple day to day things like: - Takes longer to queue at the airports. - Can’t use my UK streaming accounts abroad. - Some shipping fees from Europe are more expensive. - EU muscians I work with are now cautious about travelling to the UK due to added costs, hence less income for me! - Cancellation of funding for EU funded projects, back to the drawing board. I’ve personally felt no benefit, and so far I can’t see what benefit there will be fo
  12. @Andrew Reid - I agree on so many levels. It's at a point so monstrous and disorientating it's just.... f*cked. You're around Manchester aren't you? My space is open. You could occupy one of the (many) empty coworking desks with free coffee etc, bitch about celebrity Youtubers, play with my C70 and film the empty sad streets around the utopian Ancoats area. It's dark and raining.
  13. I feel the pain mate. As well as this virus turning life upside down, it has also exacerbated personal issues in relationships and with my mental wellbeing to the point that everything is like a sludge of clay. I strongly agree with your views on internet and truth. When people are using memes as their “news” source, there’s a big problem. Then comes the nonsensical behaviour of our Governments. Nothing can be trusted but we trust in our own stupidity. Social media and internet control is a pandemic in itself, that’s got out of control. It’s a crazy illness that affects us dee
  14. @Andrew Reid, I agree. 2020 was a behemoth of a challenge. Mentally it’s been awful but I think I’ve done well to persevere and pursue a change in direction. 2021 doesn’t change anything, it’s just a number. I’ll just continue and crack on. You’re right about Youtube. Anything that becomes oversaturated starts spitting out trash so it’s harder to see the better layers underneath. Many camera “reviewers” spend half a video giggling and skateboarding. They don’t represent the industry and make it feel glamorous. It isn’t. We don’t have to watch them. I don’t anymore. The A
  15. Thanks, they are just extremely expensive at the moment.
