  1. Face detection works really badly on GH4 also, other modes might be improved?
  2. theres plenty of european shops with the crane for sale (amazon uk, de for example)
  3. well, if youre lucky they are nice and pay you i guess but insurance is big business, they have teams of people whose job it is to find ways of not paying out any money, and tonnes of small print to help them do their job efficiently
  4. most insurance that covers theft wont pay you anything in case the bag is unsupervised or in a place where it can be taken without you noticing
  5. on the other hand, statistically you are more likely to spend more on insurance than the value of stolen stuff in your lifetime, otherwise the insurance industry would cease to exist
  6. Ive had this show up in Premiere exports, dont remember how I solved it sorry!
  7. Basically you're losing the quality and advantages of the balanced cable (the main reason to use XLR) when you connect the adapter. (You can search balanced vs unbalanced cable for plenty of info) Other than that you should have the same results as using any other mic or cable with a minijack on the end depending on how well made/shielded the adapter is. The weak points in the signal would probably be the camera or zoom preamps more than the type of cable/adapter
  8. You could still try as an experiment using your SSD for preview files and putting media on a big USB drive.. WHat kind of files are you editing? Transcoding to an easier format is always a possible solution to speed things up.. Are you having trouble before or after adding effects?
  9. Maybe obvious but are you using just one external drive for editing? At least 2 is recommended with one drive for media one for preview files etc.. (2 slower drives usually faster than one fast one)

    One Lens?

    5-10 sounds about right! 50 not so much..
  11. Seems like they removed that video showing how to swap the motor side, kind of silly if it doesnt work as its in all their marketing materials, why do these companies insist on putting the motor on the wrong side! DS1 is still looking good..
  12. Check if the lens is updated with latest firmware, it helps with the issue
  13. I found switching to 70% brought a huge improvement in general quality for me, focussing on people instead of some small patch of sky in a window in the corner of the frame (for example) I think gives much better results.. 70% zebras plus simple histogram is also a great combination
  14. No need to have a payed account to password protect on vimeo..
  15. Maybe stop the lens down a bit, its looking really soft
