  1. I own a Focusrite 26 i/o (old version) and a Behringer U-Phoria 404 and the latter is a lot better as noise floor, gain of the preamps, and stability. I also own the Zoom f4, but never used it as interface yet...
  2. I've found Robert Mckee's Story a great resource, somehow irritating, but useful.
  3. I use FCPX for editing and bought Color Finale for the lack of curves, but I've also began to explore Resolve 11 and then 12, now 12.5 to try to achieve better results in grading. While there I've found that "ecosystem" with everything connected: ingesting, editing, color correction and delivery. But I've also found an hybrid of FCP7 and FCPX in the editing window. Right now I'm still on FCPX for editing (and for minor color correction), but I send the Project to Resolve for grading, without a single bug until now... Resolve is deeper than FCPX so I'm reading and watching a lot of tutori
  4. I am almost totally happy owner of the Sony a5100 and I only complain about that it can't be powered externally (like the GX80 does) and, a lot more annoying, about the overheating issues. Does the GX80 overheating issues?
  5. I'm far to be a professional on editing and/or grading, I'm a music composer, but I've done some works on FCP7 and now on FCPX, I love the latter a lot after a period of perplexity. Now I'm learning Resolve and with the last update, the 12.5 I think it begins really to be a contender for us not so confident on this field. The possibility to jump from edit to grading, the great compatibility with other softwares, the powerful color page is a must. What I find still immature is the multicam synchronization, way better on FCPX.
  6. Nothing about overheating? I like the silent shutter, but miss the touch screen of my a5100. Great camera for sure...
  7. Exactly the opposite for me: I own a 550D with ML on it and the a5100 with its XAVC S codec always selected: the latter wins hands down in every aspect...
  8. I own a Zoom h1 and an older Zoom h4 first release, both have issues. The latter has problems with internal power: while using internal batteries it has a noise at 700Hz, more or less. If it's powered from outside (I made a simple battery pack with 6 AA Alkaline) there is no problem at all. The H1 has a serious issue with the buffer, here an explanation: http://www.danmccomb.com/sound-bag/zoom-h1-battery-sound-problem-and-swift-resolution-from-samson/#comment-75724 I sent mine to Samson and they sent my another one in replace, but the wop-wop-wop-wop noise is still there... Both are really noi
  9. I purchased it right now, I already own Color Finale that includes LUT Utility, so I can incorporate your LUT in my workflow.
  10. I use the a5100 files (Xavc-s) directly into FCPX, on a MBPro 2014 Retina with a SSD. No issue at all. It's the first Sony camera I own, but a gigantic step ahead the Canon 7D or 550D on dynamic range and moiré
  11. Starting with (too much) compressed audio is like shooting with (too much) compressed video instead of using better codec. If you have to tweak something in the edit room you'll risk to have a lot of issue. Audio is good enough for most video works at 24bit/48KHz, I've sometimes used 96KHz for music, but it's overkill if you audio equipment quality is less than stellar. Audio files are a lot smaller than video, so 24bit/48KHz is not such an issue, IMHO. 16bit is problematic if you have to do almost nay tweaking in post: noise reduction, heavy EQ and so on...
  12. Are the sample rates set identical? Looks like a mismatch of the audio sample rate, maybe one at 44.1KHz and the other at 48KHz.
  13. Useful list, but you forget to include the Sony A5100. It's better than the A6000 in video mode: Xavc-s at 50Mb/s and almost 100€ less expensive.
  14. I'm still in "learning mode" with my new Sony A5100, but its Xavc s codec seems to be really rock solid also in slow motion.
  15. sunny day vs cloudy day? However looks like that the FZ1000 is moiré free, more than the Sony A6000, to name a similar target price camera...
  16. I've done a work with the H4n and a pair of Oktava Mk012 condenser mics, using both to have a safety audio track (the actress was moving a lot during the shot). Almost 40 minutes for a set of alkaline batteries. All done at 48KHz.
  17. Better DR and finer detail on GX7, but I see some artefacts on the building on the left at 00:13 in the Panasonic's video and a lot of "dancing noise" in dark areas. As someone already said these are two great cameras with some limits and issues. Thanks for your useful video, Inazuma.
  18. I hope to see soon a real video comparison on same subjects, with similar camera configuration, low light rendition, skin tone rendition, fences' moire, something like this. I'm not an expert, I'm a musician and a wannabe documentary shooter. I've used a 550d and a Hx9v, sometimes a 7d.
  19. I'm looking for a new camera and these threads were promising until all these hormones came out... I hope to see some more factual evidence about which one is really (almost...) moiré free. :-)
  20. Found a video with amazing autofocus, really useful in documentary shoot, for example.
  21. I've searched everywhere, but never found info about NTSC>PAL switch: is a US market camera usable in EU? In the (not so informative) on line manual Sony says (pag.31) PAL/NTSC Selector* By changing the TV format of the device, shooting in a different movie format is possible. * Only for 1080 50i compatible models. Seems to me that you can switch from EU to US, but not from US to EU. I ask this because here in Europe is 200€ more expensive than in US...
  22. I've found another video, shot with EOS 70D, with great autofocus and a ton of moiré and artifacts.
