  1. Gordon Laing has done a really fantastic video-specific look at the S1/S1R. Worth a watch:
  2. The S1/S1R 6K Photo is actually 3:2 instead of 4:3 like the GH5/G9. Choose your anamorphic glass accordingly.
  3. Just looked into this. 60P 4K Photo mode still does a Super 35 crop. 6K and 4K at 30P is full readout. No free lunch, sadly.
  4. You can shoot Super 35 in all framerates (4K/60P and 1080/180P can only be recorded in Super 35). In 1080P, your frame rate does jump from 60P to 150P. I'd love to see 120P added. Pixel-Pixel is only available in 1080P modes, which makes sense as the Super 35 modes are 4K at the pixel-pixel level.
  5. I shot most of the episode, (aside from the part art the canyon) on a video monopod, so I can't really say. It wasn't an issue for the couple hours we were there. I wouldn't want to hand hold it for an entire event shoot or something. The body with the 24-105mm feels similar to the GH5 with a Metabones and Sigma 18-35mm I usually use, so I don't think it would be an issue for most types of filming.
  6. I'm cutting an entire DPRTV episode shot on the S1 with 10 Bit 4:2:0 HLG. Not doing anything overly demanding, but I'm finding it has a really nice, organic look. You can all let me know what you think when it goes up this weekend.
  7. Pretty noticeable, but not bad for super-sampled 4K. In-line with the a7 III.
  8. Yeah, I'm really unhappy with how I delivered that conclusion. The point I was trying to make is that if you only want to carry the camera, the GH5 and X-T3 are much more full featured. If you add an external recorder, however the Z6 and to a lesser extent the Z7 become extremely compelling. The audio issues can certainly be worked around as well, but I remember shooting with Canon DSLRs and occasionally being forced to use an underpowered mic. I do think the main purchasers for video will almost exclusively be people with a large selection of Nikkor AF glass.
  9. I have to finish up one project today before upgrading, but it's a pretty serious update. I'm really looking forward to seeing how Apple's video noise reduction performs. Hopefully the tighter implementation of third party plugins will also give them a nice performance boost.
  10. Max repeatedly stated that this was the first of several tests. I'd rather see his findings as he shoots them, then wait a month for a 40 minute video with all the results in every category.
  11. For single point LED lighting, Aputure's COB lights have been outstanding. Excellent colour, and very reliable. I love the Fotodiox Flapjack lights as well, if you primarily need soft lighting. Not quite as consistent colour wise (my 200RS has a bit of a cyan cast), but the light's shape is beautiful right off the fixture, and the round panels give an amazing catchlight.
  12. As mentioned in the episode, when we switched to shooting 1080P I also switched to the RF 24-105mm F4 L IS. The EF-S 17-55mm was only used for the 4K sequences.
