    IronFilm reacted to Kisaha in JVC is back with a new cinema camera!!   
    i am just putting this here, for all of us to understand where JVC stands at the moment.
    http://pro.jvc.com/prof/attributes/features.jsp?model_id=MDL102557
    The SSD slot is another great innovation by JVC. The price is 3900$ though.

    Well unless you have dual pixel autofocus and tap to focus on the C300, most people will be stopping down their lens to give them a deeper depth of field for ease of focusing. In this case MFT has an advantage because you can have f2.8 light gathering but a 5.6 depth of field which is more forgiving.
    I love the MFT mount and hope BM, Panasonic, and Olympus continue to innovate on it. I also think JVC should do the same thing as they did with the LS300: super35 sensor with MFT mount (or some kind of adaptable mount like MAVO) and offer more features in a smaller form factor.
    I prioritize weight and carry-ability over sensor size and depth of field. I’m definitely in the minority though. Everybody wants that blurry background because is easier to do them think about composition.

    I said "amateurs". Know what I mean!
    @BTM_Pix i always use SmallHD Focus, and never an EVF, even if it comes without any of those and I save 200-300€ I will be extremely happy!
     
    @Alt Shoo
    6K yes, full frame - NO!
    I seriously doubt a full frame such camera would be useful or necessary or even competitively priced which is the key point here.
    Ursa mini pro cameras, EVA, C cameras, FS cameras AREN'T full frame and they own 99,9% of their market..
    P4K, Z, GH cameras are owning a huge portion of their market too with "only" being m43..
    When I use full frame cameras I always go to 5.6f or more, to have reasonable depth of field, and newer smaller sensors have great high ISO performance..
    The sensor with the m43 mount was/ is an amazing solution for me and speedboosted can cover all bases! This was a plus for me on the previous camera, the company that owns the LS300 I am using since then acquired 2 more GH5 and a Pocket 4K, before the LS300 they were only buying Canon/Sony..

    Even if it was exactly the same but with dual ISO and additionally a good 10bit codec, I would buy that camera for 3500€ and I believe this is the market they have to attend, a good work horse camera around 3000-4000€$£.
    Cine cameras like the Z and P4K are good enough for most, but I still haven't bought my P4K cause I do not really need it. A C100mkII with 4K and some more modern features or an even cheaper FS5 with less features is more the market for me.
    There is not such a camera at the moment, the JVC LS300 was/is the only one in the market but there are a few shortcomings that can't make it a best buy ever.
    Their "lite" codecs right now are very "lite" at times, and not Canon C100mkII good-lite! Also, the low light performance is not good for 2019 (or even '18).
    I know most people here want a cheap and incredible cine camera, but there are; Z and P4K can offer you whatever cine you want. Seriously, they are that good and that cheap, what else do you need from one for an indie short or a crash cam of a bigger production?
    What I am missing, which is the HUGE BULK of video productions around the world, is a reasonable priced workhorse camera under 5.000$€£.
    Changes happen so fast now, that big "investments" in camera bodies are not easy to make, and the lower segments of the market are growing rapidly.
    There are literally legions of low budgeted video makers from villages to huge metropolises (Mumbai, Kuala Lumpur, Mexico city, Cairo, etc etc) that want a dependable tool that will bring food to the table and now most served by various flavors of Canon (C100, 70/80D, camcorders even..).
    LS300 sold more than we thought, because of some of those people, but still was some kind of an afterthought or one of its shortcomings was a deal breaker for some (e.g terrible monitoring, and those people do not want extra bulk, or extra expenses).
    They can make it right this time, but the key here is "pricing", and they know it, and that is good.
    Edit: it is interesting that they do not allow "amateurs" to take the survey. It shows to me that are targeting specifically the gap in the market I mentioned above. My impression is that they will try to fit in as much as they could for the most economical price.

    I think I kind of agree with them.  You're right that a hobbyist could make a good suggestion, but in a way we could also make a bad one, and in that sense it's better to keep us out of the data.  
    I mean, how many times have you been talking about something and had people coming into the conversation with bone-headed ideas and you've just felt like saying "THIS ISN'T FOR YOU..  FRACK OFF!!" 😂😂😂

    In the first question I answered that: no, I do not create video content for a living, nor do I plan to.
    And - voila, I was thanked for taking the survey.

    You can rent glass, you know? I know places where you can get a set of Lomos for $500 for the weekend. For a specific project, it can be doable. Also adaptors. The new Aivascope is looking scrumptous. 
    Anamorphic and auto focus in the same sentence is decades away. It's hard to put into words how hard it is to grind bent glass, but that's the reason it's so expensive. 
    Also, auto focus and cinema do not belong in the same sentence. No serious film crew uses auto focus. It's an amateur tool that works ok for documentaries. But if you're shooting actors and needs graceful, predictable transitions, turn the damn focus ring. Makes no sense to demand manual control of every other parameter, but then leave your sharpness to a dumb computer.

    Yeah, basically XT3 image quality and recording formats inside a GY-LS300 body would be ideal. Adding ProRes in addition to HEVC would make it very flexible and scalable.

    I'd love a camera that can easily be mounted on the shoulder. The issue is it makes mounting on a gimbal a no go, at least affordable ones.

    Matthew Libatique is the director and the DOP of this short. I’m not sure is a great director but a great DOP, yes.
    Serious team for grading .
    Fuji says about this short : « A Different Beyond” was lensed with FUJIFILM/FUJINON MKX cinema zoom lenses, FUJINON Premiere PL Cabrio zooms, and Zeiss Super Speed PL-mount primes in order to show the feasibility of using varied professional optics with the new FUJIFILM X-Trans 4 sensor. Most of the movie was recorded into the Fujifilm Log (“F-Log”) Rec2020 color space, both to internal SD cards and Atomos Ninja Inferno devices, and then professionally color graded. However, several of the scenes were recorded using FUJIFILM Film Simulations directly (ETERNA, Velvia and CLASSIC CHROME) to show their suitability for projects that don’t have time or budget for color grading. « 
    You can dislike the grad but I think it is a serious work.

    IronFilm reacted to Mmmbeats in I WILL be getting a Fuji X-T3!   
    This is a pretty ludicrous response.  First off, grading is, beyond anything else, a subjective matter.  So you didn't like the way they used shadows and concealment to draw the viewer in.  I happened to love it.  In no universe is there a definitive 'too dark' in these matters.  Not to your taste?  Fine.  Simply wrong?  That I don't accept.
    That character's first scene, which is the one I imagine you have most objection too, uses concealment to draw the viewer in, and does a pretty good job of it imo.  There are highlights that flash up here and there that give glimpses of the pressure the character is under, and then they use motivated light for a great reveal (when the headlight splashes through the window and you finally get a full glimpse of his fear).   It's not the most devastatingly amazing cinematography I've even seen, but it does a very good job.
    Secondly, the image you've posted up as a comparison is so different in tone and feel it's more or less irrelevant.  It's not going for anywhere near the same kind of atmospheric sense of dread.  It's shot in a completely different set of lighting conditions, so of course the exposure looks different.  Added to that, it's not even technically that accomplished of an image (though it may work perfectly well in the context it was intended). 

    I genuinely wonder if the gamma is a bit off on whatever screen you're viewing on, cos that can make moody stuff look impenetrable.

    Hmm, that's not a dark environment, the table on the left of the frame is almost blown out. Maybe this is a better example of what you're trying to get at. Dark scene, but you can still see the expressions and intention in the performances.

    I haven't really posted in this group much for awhile, but the launch film I created for the Mavo LF just dropped today. (It was playing at the Kinefinity booths at NAB&CineGear but it finally came online today). Article I wrote on NoFilmSchool but the film's more important - took me about a year, ha. I've always wanted to create something vaguely sci-fi. Happy to answer any technical questions, too. Cheers.

    That's why every one of us should ask Fuji for an open gate video recording - maybe they will incorporate it in some future update.
