  1. Thanks, I am still waiting for official reply about luggage - some airlines already replied that's it's ok, some say that I have to check with specific airport - no always yes or no answer. The goal is to check and find the tripod to make many 3 days trips without the paid luggage. ( head + camera + tripod + level.. ~<7kg ). Funny that I am looking for exactly the same set. 502 seems a better deal for me. 1. What rig are you using? 2. What could you say more about twisting? Is it really a big problem when head is hardened? What if we could: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fj6fMcJ18aA :-)
  2. Hi, Thanks for response. It's funny I was looking to buy in the same store... ;-) Here is a complete list of what I've found on the internet ( >160cm, <55cm ) : Max height | Folded | Weight | Price http://foto-tip.pl/pl/statyw-triopo-ge-3232x8c.html 190 / 47,5 / 1390 / 170$ http://foto-tip.pl/pl/statyw-triopo-me-3232x8c.html 188 / 48,5 / 1730 / 110$ http://foto-tip.pl/pl/statyw-triopo-mt-3232x8c.html 185,5 / 48,5 / 1730 / 109$ ...

  3. Anyone? 1. 500 vs 502? 2. eye level perspective and as light and small ( max 52 cm ) as it could be in a normal price range? or similar?
  4. What do you think about: Panasonic LUMIX G Vario 45-150mm f/4.0-5.6 ASPH Lens, Black or Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6 G Vario Mega OIS Lens when compared to 14-140mm in terms of lens image overall quality?
  5. Thanks, I've tried to find tests with specifc lens and camera, but they haven't tested it yet - so I've tried similar sensors like GH4 > GX7. We're talking about 4K UHD and thats ~8MPx. Marco, are you talking about the Samsung NX500 kit 16-50? Looking for Samsung 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 ED OIS Lens test with NX500.
  6. Looking to buy fluid head and tripod for GH4, for mostly video vehicle tracking shots: fast cars, airplane landings etc. Thats both fast and slow tracking, panning and tilting. There was a similar topic with 701hdv, but it was 2 years ago and there is new stuff available. 1. I've thought about Manfr 500 or similar like 502 - what do you think, buy 500 or 502 or other? I am also looking for tripod allowing me to make shots from eye level perspective, and as light and small ( max 52 cm ) as it could be in a normal price range. 2. Any suggestions? Price for whole set: tripod + head = < 350E
  7. ‚Äč1. Achieve the highest possible sharpness and image quality, using the camera body <> lens kit 2. Find out if the lens sharpness matters - ie. what criteria to consider when choosing a good lens
  8. NX500: + codec ( but how does it really compare to G7? anyone? ) - hdmi output, lenses G7: + lenses, hdmi - codec LX7: + lens - hdmi output, no lens change All cost about the same. Question: What is the true lens resolution possibility ~ 1000 USD ? 1. Is it true that in m4/3 we can't really use practically more than the lens resolution of LX7 and 12Mpx, because there isn't a enough sharp lens ( > 10Mpx ) to use with G7 ( m4/3 or with adapter ) which costs less then 1000USD? 14-140 is only 6P-MPix ( dxomark ) and 14-42 is 7P-MPix. 2. Maybe the NX500 has a 28MPx sensor, but is there an
  9. I've had a G6, superb camera, but only 1080p. Sold to buy 4K. Is it possible to make a follow focus shot on either lx100 or fz1000?
  10. Andrew, thank you for your reply, now it's a clear comparision :-)
  11. Thank you for your responses. So, the true main differences that matters are: 1. wider zoom range in FZ1000 2. microphone input in FZ1000 3. better stabilisation on FZ1000 ( 5 axis works in the video mode or only photo? ) 4. CineLike profiles on FZ1000 5. quite faster lens on LX100 6. flipscreen on FZ1000 I've read all the posts and very good reviews on eoshd.com, before making a new post. Andrew, the problem is that I haven't find anywhere straight true and real, tested and verified answear to this questions: LX100 vs FZ1000 1. Which camera is better in low light? 2. Which cam
  12. Hi, I 'am trying to decide between FZ1000 and LX100. It will be a main A camera. It must shoot 4K and cost ~900 USD. I've already bought GP4 Black as B camera and I use old Dslr for stills, but it's not enough. Of course I can use a GoPro as a pocket camera, but it's ... I would like to use camera for: - stills and panoramas - timelapse and night timelapses - interviews* ( i want to mount a led lamp on camera ) ( I would like to record clear sound of voice outdoors and for example - car sounds. It would be good to connect a microphone, but I can also use external recorded if nec
  13. Yeah, I've finished comparing it all and it seems that E-PM2 with sensor stabilisationis the best idea. So, going for E-PM2 :-) 1. Would you recommend any polarizer filter for 14-42? 2. Do you have any info about "good settings", some software or some tricks that you think are important to know for PM2? 3. Do you recommend some special lens for this camera as a second lens to 14-42? I've thought about getting Canon 50 and M4/3 adapter.
  14. Wifi in G6 is great, but wifi will interfere ( same frequency ) with electronics and the copter will crash. We can't enable wifi when flying either in any camera: G6, GoPro, GH4 etc. Example of crash - http://static.youreporter.it/video_Drone_incidente_a_Treviso_durante_il_decollo Same thing is about using "remote sharpening..." in RED.
  15. Thanks Julian & Andrew. Araucaria - yes, this is the main problem. Microvibrations. I am dividing aerial filmaking into: 1: GH4 with good lens - best for the most of videos. That's all. 2: GoPro 3+ and H3-3D gimbal - best for pocket copter travel filmaking. Fits in 1 hard case. 3: Red Epic and others - it's like 1DX and C300 on the ground. For specific situations, not every day. So, it's great to capture videos via GH4 from a gimbal. GM1 is great as a pocket camera. The problem is that it's just nearly 3 times ( ~ 850 USD ) more expensive than other cameras in shops ( ~280USD ).
  16. Looking for a camera that shoot good photo in raw ( 90% photo, 10% video ) from aerial multicopter. Weight doesn't matter so much, but of course ( lower=better). It's only about keeping the price of camera+lens low - below 400Euro here due to possible crash. It would be great to have a built in stabilisation in lens. Shooting in auto or just set ISO, shutter speed and aperture and fly. Pictures every few seconds via timer for few minutes and than landing. Shooting photos in RAW would be good idea. 1080p is additional to shoot from ground. This is the list of what I've find: 1. EosM +
  17. Thanks, G6 was great "but too big" to fit in the pocket - it's sized more like GH4. I've also heard about GX7 and GM1 coming with new sensor, so I've sold the G6. Then there was a GM1 and GX7 official premiere. jonpais GH4 is on the list because it's the only camera that record 4K that I know. 4k recording beats bigger weight and bigger size but it will cost 3 times more. I am looking for something other than GH4 for know, but it's still on my list ( it just cost a lot ) It's more like I would like to record 4K for 800 euro - currently quite impossible, so I am now looking to buy
  18. Thank you all for your replies :-) There are three options - I would like to know a set with lens to compare few things. What would you recommend as a first good lens for travel if you had only camera body? 1) for A6000 2) for GM1 3) for GH4
  19. I want to take photos of interesting places, especially landscape = hdr, photos at night, panoramas and aerial photos etc. Blog about interesting places to visit in my area. Video from a tripod or gorilla mount and slider. So, what would you recommend as a good RAW-based image camera? GM1 with kit lens?
  20. Thank you, maxotics. I am also considering "effective resolution". Using very simple words = the picture which I make today won't be in a good resolution after a few years. I am trying to have as big resolution as I can. What could you say about effective resolution of camera today and in the future few years - for example A6000 vs GM1? I was thinking about Olympus, Fujifilm, Panasonic, Sony or Nikon mirrorless camera. Is there a good Olympus or Fuji camera comparable to GM1? I've read that the RX100 III and other compact cameras aren't as good as mirorless - is it correct? Maxotics, i w
  21. Hi I am looking for a camera that I could use when I travel to take pictures and videos for travel blog. I am waiting for GoPro 4 to record 4K video in various of environment. I want to have a small camera for stills. This camera will also capture stills from plane travels. I was thinking about a GM1, because it takes a good video too, but GM1 was released more than half a year ago - maybe we will see GM2 soon. I've though about Nikon AW1 and A6000. The video quality is important, because 1080p is still good for now and it would be a backup camera. I 've had a G6 and 14-42, sold
  22. Back to topic. Up to 150m ( 300-500 feet ) I don't think that I will find any camera that will record 4k for up to 1000USD with lens in the nearest future... ( only gopro IV :P ) What do you think? Will they be any camera in this price? Lets go back to reality. Before NAB, staying at 1080p - I've listed camera that I am interested in. Looking for very portable camera with "very good" image ( photos ) and video quality. What's important for me: - Price - up to 1000 USD ( 750-800 EURO ) with lens - Small size - my favorite is GM1, because I can travel with it without any bags. 1 lens
  23. Brushless gimbal - perfect stabilisation in 3 axis. No remote shooting control - everything is set on the ground before each shot. Just start recording, record, land, watch and copy. And repeat this process. During recording i will have live preview - live streaming of video. Currently i see that there isn't any black magic pocket 4k. So everything right now in price up to ~3000 USD with lens is: GH4 FDR-AX100 Do you know anything else?
  24. So, what do you recommend for this moment? Buy the cheapest option like a3000, 3n or g6?
  25. Hi. I want to buy a camera for aerial video and photo. I've thought about G6 or Nex 5r. G6 is the best but it record 1080p. I also consider Nex becouse I want to take photo. ( 50%/50% photo/video ) More important - I am planning to go into 4k. I've got about 3000USD for camera. There is a Sony FDR-AX100 which record 4K for 2000USD. Problem? 4K bitrate in FRD-AX100 iss 60Mb... Quite Low. 1. Is it better to buy FDR-AX100 despite of low bitrate / GH4 or it's better to buy now G6 or Nex and create 1080p video for next 6 months? | Go into to 4k now or wait? 2. What do you thi
