    good lavalier for gh5 interview

    The Aputure A.Lav sounds the best, and is the one I use myself for lots of my YT vlogs (running straight into my Panasonic G6)

    It is a music video :-P There are times when wired lavs make sense (for instance I run an Aputure A.Lav straight into my G6 for my vlogs, because a) it is just for with me b) I'm lazy c) it is compact/cheap), but for most people/situations wireless makes more sense unless utterly broke.

    What Do Y'all Think of The Kinefinity Mavo LF?

    I think many people can make the mistake of lumping all these "expensive" or "premium" cameras into one big muddled up "high end" category which they then mistakenly think is all the same tier more or less as each other. When that is not at all the case, there are many tiers located within that big muddled up lot they've mixed them up into. Keep in mind what the competition looks like where the MAVO LF is priced at. We're talking cameras like the Canon C300 mk2, Sony PMW-F5, and the RED Raven. In the professional market we're very much talking about the low/mid end segment of the market. While the Kinefinity MAVO LF is trying to promise to compete up at the levels of a Sony VENICE / Canon C700 FF / RED MONSTRO / ARRI ALEVA FF / etc, which are all placed right right at the very top top end of the market and are much much much more expensive than the MAVO LF! Thus it is understandable if there are people out there who are willing to live with some of the trade offs of a Kinefinity camera if it means they can get a "high end" camera for a "low/mid end" price. The BMPCC4K no more makes the MAVO LF (or Terra 4K) irrelevant than it makes any ARRI or RED irrelevant (or many other cameras from low to high, like a Panasonic EVA1 or Sony FS7, etc... or even the other dirt cheap cameras, like a Fujifilm X-T3 or Panasonic GH5 are still relevant cameras to consider even in a world with the BMPCC4K shipping) Why? There is tonnes of competition in the mirrorless world. The likes of Yi and others have tried. (even Samsung! And gave up) Kinefinity is smart in the niche they've targeted, nobody else is in their little small niche area of higher end but at budget prices with the exception of the URSA Mini Pro (and some past attempts from other players, like the failed AJA CION. And some possible new entrants... Z Cam might be knocking on their door in another generation or two)

    Eyemore S1 video camera Review

    Eyecome S1 does indeed have quality similar to a Panasonic, this Panasonic:

    Am I'm certain Kinefinity is working on their next camera too. So is Panasonic. So is Canon. So is Sony themselves. This is just normal business that everyone does. People are always working on their next product.

    Maybe. Depends. If you're not hiding the lav? Then yes I'd agree with you. But with the most mild amount of training ever (i.e. get the boom closer!! Have it only just barely barely above the frame line, and pointed at the subject), then a NTG2 on a C stand / boom pole / boombuddy will in most typical scenarios give better sound than a hidden RodeLink lav for an average skilled OPC camera person. Of course ideally you'll use both, and choose in post, that then reduces the risk as well of the camera person having screwed up all the audio. That is waaaaaaaay waaaaaaaaay waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay underrating the craft of lav placement. Unless you're just using an alligator clip on the shirt and don't give a sh*t about hiding it at all. To say he puts "time" and "effort" into it would be very generous. Probably just hits up the Amazon search, selects a few at random to slap into a web page to then get those sweet sweet affiliate marketing dollars from suckers who share his "work".

    Anyone looking into the Red Gemini?

    Well if you work as a Compositing and VFX Supervisor then I highly doubt you'll get the Gemni being rented often enough to justify it.

  9. LOL! The long time relationship Sony has with overheating mirrorless cameras carries on.....

    A little secret: this happens a lot more often than you think....... just this one time Fstoppers let the curtain slip and you got a peek inside. Often execution is more important than ideas.
