    Interesting, what about for HD or 24p 4k?

    I don't know. For my short fiction work, now I don't think I'll ever go over the threshold of overheating. I'm very happy with this update.

    Give me better ibis and no recording limits/overheating over 8K please. 

    Do you know on the XT4 with the latest firmware update, you can choose the threshold of the overheating auto-off protection? It is now possible to record at least 40 minutes ; 4K 60p H265 10bit.
    Watch this video at 2'50 and 4'01mn

    Thanks for your responses.  After some testing I realized that it is only before hitting record.  After that it goes to the correct ISO.  Really weird, I checked the DR and Flog settings and both were at 100 and off respectively.  Maybe it's a "Live view" setting.  At any rate if it records correctly then I'm confident using it in Auto ISO.

    Exposure compensation  is set to 0?

  4. You can read this, on this page


    Fuji (Fujifilm)

    Fuji has currently three types of wired shutter release connectors.

    2.5mm Jack Plug

    Some of the Fujis have the standard 2.5mm jack socket to connect the microphone. This socket also serves as a shutter release socket. The wiring is compatible with Canon and Pentax (see above) and cheap remotes designed for these brands can be used. 

    So the fuji remote control works like the RS60-E3 cannon remote control.

    And you can read this on this page


    When the button on the remote control is pushed half way, contact section 1 and 2 are shorted together, causing the camera to focus. When the button on the remote control is pushed all the way, all three contact sections are shorted together, causing the camera shutter to be released. Pin 1 is actually the ground connector. Therefore, it's pin 1 and pin 3 that causes the camera to trigger.

    1 - ground

    2 - focus

    3 - shutter

    When you build your own camera interface, you can split the auto-focus and shutter release function by using two switches or use two independent circuits.


    Now I think I have everything I need. I will try to build my trigger button this weekend. I will use wire 1 and 3 on the momentary button and hide and protect wire 2. 

  5. Thanks Jay60p for the answer, but I think the diagram is more like the one I corrected. Just thinking about how the stereo audio is connected. I think I'll try to connect only 1 and 3 on the momentary button and I won't use 2. Just to trigger the rec. but I'll continue to do some internet research first.  


  6. Thank you Jay60p for your contributions. I would also like to try to tinker  a shutter release for my XT4 but I would just like to use the Vello remote cable and a momentary button like in the following video at 11mm50. But I have three cables on a side and two slots on the button on the other. And I don't know how to do ?



  7. About flare. I find that they resist very well for the lights in front of lens, which are in the frame. For the side lights, just at the edge of the frame, but out of the frame, it's no less good. You can lose contrast very quickly. I have the tilta mattebox on the lens, outside. 

  8. I have the 25, 35 and 50mm of this Meike cine lenses. The only downside is the lack of focal length wider than 25mm for X-mount. An optic around 18mm would be really the best.

    Otherwise, it's good and really good : Long focus throw / Focus ring is very smooth / No focus breathing/  10 pieces blade /Incredible optical quality / An incredible manufacturing quality (I haven't seen a single dust inside my 3 optics) / All is metal.

    The 35mm is the focal length I use the most because it's the basic focal length on an APSC sensor.

    Is there really a big difference in "gradeability" between the 4:2:0 10-bit internal footage and the 4:2:2 10-bit external footage on an X-T3?

    Because I shoot primarily real estate and deal with mixed lighting (and can't set up lights), I often have to color correct a lot.

    Would shooting in 4:2:0 (which is the chroma level in 4K 60p internally) really hamper my ability to color correct (as opposed to 4:2:2)?

    Thanks in advance.

    There is no difference in "gradeability" between 420 and 422.  The big difference about "gradeability" is 10bits vs 8 bits. F-log is better too. ProRes is better than H265 for hardware but it's another question.

    in manual focus i see the rig only on tripod. I want use the rig also in my hand for little movement or run and gun like situation. That way side and top handles are both useful, and both of them will require autofocus, what do you think?

    It's very complicated to move the camera by hand with a light rig and to make the focus easily.

    that's right, also with top handle should not be easy no? actually when i think at two sie handle i think at a autofocus shot, 

    With autofocus, two handles side should be a good solution.

    ok i have seen it

    i ask you the same, as i am telling eerybody

    Don't you miss the 2 side handles? sometimes i think it is useful to carry the camera that way

    No. Not easy to manually focus with two side handles.

    i see that is a cage for dslr, what you mean you use half?is so big?

    No, it's not so big. If I don't use the right part, I don't put it on, so I don't weigh down the whole rig. It's very flexible. With my Weebill S, I only use the top part and the left part with a weight to counterbalance the lens and the matte box. You can only buy the half cage. I prefer to have the full one and use only what I need.

    Hello i own a fuji xt3 and thinking tobuy a cage. What i don't like is the idea that if in a couple of year i 'll change camera i'll should change all the rig. For what you know there are cage/rig that support generic mirrorless cameras?


    I got this cage (I only use half)

    16mm on veydra covered the 16:9 area on apsc Sony, I saw it on my own camera. On 3:2 full sensor there was vignetting in the corners. I looked for the 2 or 3 shots I took at NAB 2017 but not finding them 😕 so I have no proof but my word.

    Meike lenses are based on Veydra but not the same. Veydra are severe focus breathing, but Meike are almost no focus breathing. Maybe, they lost coverage in this modification.

    I asked Duclos if they'd make a rear mount MFT to X-mount mod for the 16mm MFT lens and they replied:

    "Possibly, but we have many other projects in the works right now."


    I think 16mm don't cover APS-C sensor size but only MFT sensor.

  17. 9 minutes ago, EphraimP said:

    Yeah, I'd hope they go wider than 25 too. Do the three you have work as a matched set very well. They should, but I understand that they may have made some changes to the optical formula between making the 25 and the rest of the set. For the price, it's really phenomenal to be able to get 3-4 cine lenses for the price of one from another brand.

    There is absolutely no problem to match these three lenses with the 10-bit F-log.

    How are you liking the 50mm Meike cine? Do you have the original 25mm? I'm wondering how they compare, because I have the 25 and have definitely been tempted to get the 50 and maybe the 35.

    I have the, 25, 35 and 50mm. 75% of my shots are made with the 35mm. When I need wider, I put the 25; very rarely I put the 50mm. Hope Meike will release a 20mm or 19mm if I need wider than 25mm and get stuck by a wall indoors.

  19. Here is a quick XT4 IS test done at the end of the afternoon. No problem with overheating. I shot about 12mn rushes in 45mn without any problem when it was  34 °C in Paris.
    XT4 hand held  with my 50mm Meike cine lens + ND16 filter + lens hood. IS ON; IS boost ON.
