  1. An Redlettermedia inspired post?
  2. Hey, Just got the Movcam cage for the a7sii and would like to get a hand grip strap that will work with the camera cage. The cage has loops built in so no special mounting requirements. I found this one on amazon - http://a.co/cjZPnU7 But it comes with the tripod plate and I don't need that. Like to just have it use the cages loops Also like the idea of a leather strap but open to whatever suggestions you all may have in mind. Thanks Guys!

    5 reasons why I will be getting a Panasonic GH5

    Andrew, I think the other thing to add is ISO/Gain low light performance. Panasonic have a real chance to show that you don't need a full frames sensor for good low light. The Nikon D500 is a great example. Between the processors and signal to noise processing we are seeing the gap narrow between large photo sites from full frame and APC. We will see if Panasonic can deliver.
  4. The low light high ISO performance could be improved with better S/N firmware even with M/43. Why do you think the Nikon D810 iso improved so much over the D800 or even the 12mp D700. Now the D810 does not have the exact pixel density as the GH4, but this still applies. But with all that sound I agree I would rather have a super 35mm or full frame image. I would really like to see a color space improvement. Nikon has a beautiful color space. Improving color should not only be on Panasonic's to do list, but Sony's as well. If not then just gives us RAW and go home.
  5. I'm a nikon shooter (D4, D7000) and I just got a A7sII , and I would love to have a picture setting that is close to the Nikon Color space/flat preset with some dynamic range increase. Right now Im playing around with Cine4 with raised black levels.
  6. Now if done right, I would think a full sensor readout could resolve more detail then a 1.1 resolution image?

    Suggestion on New Camera Purchase

    Hi Guys I want to chime off and see if you have any suggestion. I am a professional wedding and commercial photographer looking to make big camera switch. I plan on doing some commercial video assignments for clients in the next few months. I currently own the Nikon D4 and the video as everyone knows is not very good. I see myself as aspiring filmmaker/cinematographer. I want to put together a camera package that would allow me to still do my still photographer client work, and have a video camera for client and film work. I'm think of sell the D4 and getting a used d3 and use the rest of the money on the video end. I figure I could get $4,500 - $5K for the D4. The only thing is I have invested a lot in nikon lenses. Open to the idea of sell them as well, but would need some glass with AF. Current Gear Package Nikon D4, D7000, D90 Nikon 24-70, 70-200 VR2, Tokina 11-16(F-mount), 50 1.8d, 85mm 1.4d, Vitiator series 1 70-200 (macro), Leica Summron 35mm (M-F mount). Nikon SB-900 and 910 flash Manfrotto 501HDV - Manfrotto video monopod, CFL 3 point lights, LPMicro LED video light, Zoom H4N, Filters; Variable ND (Lightcraft Mk2), Polarize, Vid atlantic cinemorph. Cameras I like BMCC 4K GH4 (I know not out yet)
