  1. The "gyro magic" is nice but it requires added steps, crops in quite a bit and makes my face fatter. I might use it occasionally.
  2. Can Catalyst Browse be used as a transcoder for ProRes Raw? This might be a solution for those using Davinci Resolve. Can someone try that has the Ninja? Thanks!
  3. I think it might now be the other way around.
  4. This has been a complaint with Resolve for two years now. I've given up hope. I will say however that Atomos is kicking butt with so many new cameras using their product that maybe it will force them to finally include it.
  5. I have the Sony 20mm 1.8 and I LOVE this lens. It's about the right focal length for vlogging and light weight and SHARP! I can't think of one negative with this lens.
  6. Yes, A7SIII. I'll do some checking on that as well. Thank you.
  7. I understand about the competition between the two companies. I'm not holding my breath for Resolve to accept the format. What I'm looking for is some kind of workflow and tool to convert ProRes Raw to something else that is lossless or close to it that Resolve can work with. I need a method and some kind of conversion software.
  8. Since more and more cameras are now using the Atomos Ninja V to record ProRes Raw I am curious as to what is the best way to bring the footage into Davinci Resolve since it does not natively edit Pro Res Raw. How painful or painless of a process is it? I really don't want to switch NLE's. I've put way too many man hours into learning Resolve and like what I've got. Thanks for any input.
  9. Here's an example of what's happening at higher ISO's. The ISO threshold for the star-eating NR happens at different levels based on the picture profile. For S-Log2 it's between 80,000 and 102,400.
  10. I think you should be okay with stills. It's the video side that eats stars. There could also be some NR going on with raw stills but it's looks really good with time exposures and time lapses should look outstanding as well. Attached is a shot I took the other night with the Sony 20mm 1.8. It's a 10 sec exposure at ISO 3,200. You should be able to test the "star eating feature" even with skies that aren't the best. As long as the stars look sharp, the dimmer ones disappear. That would really be helpful if you could determine if recording externally will resolve this. Thanks!
  11. That would be great if you could give it a try. The stars have to be in focus for them to disappear @ ISO 102,400 in Slog 2. Hopefully the weather will cooperate. Yet another hurricane in the Gulf! Crazy. Thanks!
  12. Anyone with the A7SIII and a Ninja want to do a test for me? I have the A7SIII and I'm having difficulties with the camera shooting the night sky. It appears that at certain ISO levels, it eats stars. They will disappear from view. For example using pp7 (Slog2) between ISO 80,000 and 102,400 it appears that some NR kicks in and wipes out a bunch of stars from the night sky. I'd be curious to know if recording raw externally will prevent this from occurring. I might invest in a Ninja if this works. I just hate to order it and then find out it still looks like crap. It's a real shame s
  13. I also took ownership of the A7SIII last week. A few minor inconveniences but for the most part a solid camera. Here's a few things I have found on the negative side of things: No Clear Image Zoom in 120p, all other frame rates it works. No animal eye detect in video mode, only in stills. Human eye detect does work in video and stills mode. In video mode, tracking only works by using touch on the display to activate. No way to assign a button to start tracking when using the viewfinder. Strange and frustrating if you plan to use the EVF instead of the display. Another
  14. No EVF? I guess I could rig it with an external EVF but then it's even bigger and clunkier. Doing primarily wildlife work, I use EVF's most of the time. I think I'll pass.
  15. Not at present. 4k 60p is the max. There's been rumors that maybe Atomos may build an adapter/interface/modual for the V that allow this but at present the max you can record is 60p.
  16. I am just as sad. Did the same thing and I'm also a PRO Support member. Let's hope they get more than one or I'll have to fight you for it!
  17. I wonder if All-I is really better for most video recording? Will you be able to tell video quality wise? I can see using it if you are grabbing frame grabs and converting them into images, but otherwise I have never seen a real difference between All-I and long-gop. I guess easier editing too?
  18. Heat dissipation. Heat-sinked sensor probably. Same as all other cinema cameras that won't overheat.
  19. When I mean viable, I mean in a real-world professional use setting. I just couldn't phantom a wedding videographer, preformatting their chips in FAT32 using Linux or some 3rd party software, then record x-amount of footage, then making sure they record enough extra footage so that what they want to keep makes it to a recorded block of data before pulling the battery. That's not viable IMHO. And for myself personally, I do mostly wildlife shooting and use 4k120P quite often. I also leave cameras running to catch a particular moment when the subject does something of interest. But, that is
  20. So getting back to the camera...I don't think there is any viable workaround and Canon's not going to give you much. I stated earlier today, I've given up hope to make this into a decent video camera. Here's why: Pulling the battery, segmenting clips using FAT32 is useful for confirming that the camera really can work for extended periods w/o overheating but it's not a viable workaround. Doesn't seem to work with CFast either. Magic Lantern - Canon has changed things up making it more difficult to boot the added firmware, let alone decode. Probably not impossible, but a lot of wo
  21. Ummm... Although I do like Chris and Jordan, their very first review DID NOT mention overheating at all. I reached out to Jordan about this and he stated that they hadn't encountered the overheating during their initial testing and stated they would do a more thorough test of the camera once they had a production unit. This was on July 10th that I wrote to him. (The video from Chris and Jordon on July 9th about the camera did not mention overheating.)
  22. You don't even need to do a tear down to know Canon's intentions. Imagine if they would have designed this camera like the Panasonic S1H? They certainly could of but they didn't. I wonder why?
  23. Base the shutdown completely on temperature and no timer. This would allow external devices to help cool the camera and if you are working in indoor temperatures or cool outdoor temperatures you aren't punished for it. If they did this, I'll bet most of the complaints would go away.
  24. Found this on the ML forum regarding new firmware: "I could record external in 4K HQ up to 3 1/2h untill the SSD was full, with cards in. So all external recording modes are absolutely usable. The CFexpress card seems to produce most of the heat, when recording to SD card I got longer 8K IPB and 4K HQ times. Looking at some exif data, the camera shuts down consistently at 60°C +/- 1 External cooling improves the recording significantly!" and this from A1ex: "Quick look at the R5 firmware update - apparently the same file format as on EOS R, but different encryptio
