  1. Yeah. I like the switching on and of log idea. But yeah I get it. Thanks for replies everybody. Appreciate it.
  2. I was basing the exposure on previous test at that same exposure but less lighting actually, and I was also eyeballin it. . I know , I know. I know. Which never failed me. Till now. ...The thing that upsets me the most is I can keep the setting on camera the same as far as Iso. Shutter. And keep the same f-stop. And the exactly the same lighting. But just turn off slog2 and it won't be grainy at all. But I guess if it does what you say it does to the shadows, then it makes sense. Also Nah didn't have an external recorder. I wish, but not $$. Yeah I'm sure someone will say the slog-2 thin
  3. You might be correct. but I wasn't looking at the monitor as fail-safe to see if its exposed or not, we knew we had a chance to get grain because we did previous tests before, but in those previous tests it was way darker outdoors type of shots, and as dark or maybe even misleadingly dark these jpegs looks, but the room was lit, or so it seemed i guess. Here are some more Jpegs to so some other shots, not every shot turned out grainy, and these on this post are the worst of it. I just wanted to see if anybody else had this experience with Slog-2 and the A7s specifically.. I appreciate all
  4. I was just saying it was Film Nior, I know it doesn't mean that. I will for sure need to do that, but as far as A7s go, more iso in Slog-2 means a shit tons more grain, in our tests. Day and Night.
  5. Wait so you would recommend increasing the ISO to get rid of the grain? because when we did that in tests it just made it way worse, we also did have a monitor, but no lut input option on it. Also, in case it wasn't obvious we were shooting a Film Noir short.
  6. yeah, i feel you, I was/am kinda in the same situation, but luckily knowing a good group of people helps, we all work together and a couple of them have more cinematic looking (if you prefer calling it that) Cameras. So i stopped (for now at least) trying to invest in a new one and just started investing in lighting and grip gear. If you buy a c100, since it's already kinda outdated in a way, I would recommend again, from eBay, from a reputable seller, because you would save several hundreds of dollars than going to Adorama or BnH. I seen them go for an average price of 1600 bucks, for the ma
  7. C100 is a great camera, used it a tons of times and I would say its prolly my favorite cameras when it comes to design, just not the image, although I am not knocking, it turns out great video, just my opinion as in Image vs. Price Point. I used to own a GH3, again great little low price camera, you can get one on ebay USED, but in great condition w/box right now for about $450 bucks give or take, add a a couple hundred for GH4. there are plenty of good camcorders out there that are really good and have a fair price like the Sony PXW-X70, I have used it a few times and found it to be good for
  8. thanks for reply, but wouldn't it also be grainy in regular mode then if the reason is their dual stage iso, I had good experiences in low light situations without SLOG2, but with it only bad ones on yet, which is why we didn't use it on our previous short, that had less light, but turned out great anyways. this had more light coming in, but in SLOG and looks like turds, but yeah I see your point about overexposing, maybe its just me, I dunno might have had my expectations to high with this cameras capabilities.
  9. Sorry if this was posted before. I been using the A7s a lot lately and I saw all the AMAZING low light tests, but yet I am did not have the same results...ever. We just shot a short Film on the Sony A7s, using Rokinon Lenses.Using their SLOG-2. We were at native ISO of 3200 ( the lowest you can go in Slog) f4 on a Rokinon 35mm. The problem is a lot of the shots have a really good amount of grain to them. We shot a previous movie on this camera were we had Night Scenes in a Park and we were getting crazy amount of grain at night with SLOG-2, that we just decided to shoot without it, and it turn
  10. what i ment when i said they are good for some stuff is that for interviews or documentary style filming they are good if you avoid the rustling of the clothes so like Fuzzy Nomal said. One bad thing I have noticed is that they sometimes pick up alot of noise that from what i have been told is that their wireless capabilities are also sometimes their downfall. There have been plenty of times where we had to swtich to a shotgun because no matter what we did or where we moved we could not get rid of the noise. Also the battaries as with any sound equipment but especially those die super fast. F
  11. We got the Sennheiser G3 at school and i used them alot and would agree they are pretty good for some stuff
  12. I got the Pny 32gig for 9 bucks at my Local MicroCenter on sale, 90Mb's. I have used it on my GH3 alot, and also the C100, 5D and 6D .they worked great for those or just as good as the scandisk 45mb's i also use but just from the experience with the card standpoint , But I don't know about the GH4 and or really the technical side of it that much, sry just my 2 cents

    GH3 lenses!

    good topic, going to use this for myself once i gets more moneys
  14. dude i had the same dilemma , I had a vx2000 ccd camera the old school sweet pro-ish camera forever and i wasn't sure if a dslr or dslm is the way to go agianst a camcorder, I did alot of research including coming to this site and other sites and let me tell you man unless your thinking of spending several thousand dollars on a camcorder witch now don't come with lenses anyways in most cases, you better off witha dslr/m I got gh3 and i so far just been filming skating were I have it on a handle and film runs or gaps and i have not have much problem with rolling shutter.  the quality is j
  15. thats pretty pro looking man , i think your using this camera to its full potential .
