    It's time for me to get a new camera! And I am torn between the XT3 and the Sony A7 III both with the kit lens. I have a set of russian m42 lenses and a set of Olympus OM Zuikos, plus several Canon EF-S (18-135mm, 10-18mm, Sigma 30mm, 50mm macro). I love to shot hand-held, so I feel Sony's IBIS and full frame would exploit better my lenses. But at the same time I love everything about the Fuji!!! Can I get a cheap adaptor which would permit me to use the Canon lenses with at least aperture control and IS on the Fuji?? 

    i have the same "problema". Was waiting for sony 7as3 to help me decide but it looks like nothing in the near future. Thaugh decission indeed.

  2. Have a question here : is it, or is it NOT possible to have 10bits and 4k60p on a full frame body as tiny as A7s2?

    I am looking forward, like many on this forum, for the next gen a7s but it seams like tech is not there yet to have this on board and i think it would be a bummer not having this.

    Nikon doesn't have it internally and as much as i like nikon colors and bodies, i can't get over it. Now my hope relies on Sony. Just don't want to be disappointed. I am waiting for 2 years now to upgrade mu NX1 body and i couldn't find anything to worth it. I just love NX1 but i need better low light, and 60p. With the firmware and the native support for h.265 the codec on nx1 still holds up good enough. Can't say the same for the a7s2 codec.

    Anyways, Photokina is only a month ago and i hope a7s3 will be presented there. 

  3. IS it just me or the new new Nikon z cameras are oddly close enough in features to Samsung NX1?

    there was a rumour back in the day regarding Nikon had bought Samsung tech when they decided to exit the camera market, remember that?

    Now look at the similarities between cameras feature ( of course apart of the sensor size):

    - codec bitrate, almost the same as nx1 after hack

    - rezolution and fps both in 4k and 1080p - just keep in mind z cameras launching 5 years later than nx1 :)))))

    - even the lenses are having the same design and front size 72mm. Even the neame is the same "S" line 

    and there are more feature to look into but i don't wanna sound paranoic.

    maybe is just me though! what do you think?

    At $1999 i find the Z6 extremely compelling.. however at $3400 i find they could have added at the very least an extra card slot to the Z7. Something tells me an Z8/9 will probably be the 'pro' models in a year or two time.

    As annoying as it is, they've clearly left some parts out like mode dial, AF switch, lock image, dual card slots etc to segment their DSLRs from MILCs. 

    Nikon may not have a cine cam line to protect but they do have a DSLR one..

    As to comparison with Sony A7 line.. well the weather sealing, LCD/EVF resolution, top OLED display, 2 front function buttons, dedicated iso button, grip, touchscreen menus, right-hand menu button etc.. do set it apart ergonomically and build wise. Add to that 10-bit 4:2:2 out, Nikon color science & potentially superior IBIS and it's a slam-dunk to me.

    Canon are going to have to go all out if they plan on taking lead now..

    it's a shame that the 10bits are just external and there is no 60p in 4k. That would have been the perfect combo. I am still struggling to upgrade my 5 years old Nx1, apart of the sensor size.

  4. hi guys, i am sort of directing a mini web series and i have to deal with actors coming from theater backgrounds. They all over acting and it's horrible.

    I don't have experience in blocking actors and dealing with the way they deliver the lines and i need any good advice i can get. I am reaching to you for any good to know advice you can give, any sort of golden rule when you are blocking them, how to make them comfortable and natural and how to direct them to be more natural and not to over act.

    I know this is something you can not learn overnight and am planing on reading books and train myself for the future, but know any sort of advice would help me a lot. So many thanks in advance. cheers.

    Actually, yes! 😄

    i am dreaming of this :



    But i would never complain about this amazing camera. For what you get, at this price point, you have to be really mean to complain. It is really a dream come true, almost came true till September. My fingers crossed for a nice rolling shutter. If the motion cadence is as bad as NX1 in full 4k, than we might have a problem no matter how great the image looks like.


  6. o have only one question about the new pocket : why do you think they ditched the articulated screen in favor of the fix one? I mane it was only about the money? how expensive was to at least make it rotate up and down like on the samsung nx1 to be able to shoot from lower or upper angles which happens all the time when you go handheld? probably they assumed that you will rig it all the time but than you would loose the run and gun style of a pocket camera. 

    i don't even wanna go into details of the ceo interview when he's talking about shooting yourself - such a silly way to make it appeal to the new wave of vloggers and travelers or whatever is that niche. This camera dosen't need that and it is certainly not designed for that. How the hell would you shoot yourself without seeing what you shoot?

    Who needs to see footage. It's the best camera. Pre-order it! 

    Am not preordering anything. I am just happy to have plenty of options to choose from. I am waiting for sony to release the a7s3 and everything will be laid on the table to be picked.

    We are so lucky to live these days. I eman to be able to choose between gh5s - BMPCC4k - and soon to be out a7s3  - nice!!

    Was five years ago, I'm sure it has changed. 

    i have read the interview and he's certainly talking about the stills series, not the footage. So 7D and 50mm 1.2 is for the photography series.

    given the clarity and look i would guess that fb clip isnt from a dslr – maybe one of the mirrorless cams, but id say CX00 if i had to guess

    but COULD you use a dslr for a piece like this? OF COURSE!

    if ive learned anything about filmmaking, its that NO ONE CARES about stuff like that but us

    theres never been anything shot on a dslr that was unsuccessful BECAUSE it was shot on an dslr

    so im just sayin... dont let the gear be a barrier between you and making great content. only nerds like us notice that stuff lol

    while some people are sitting on the couch wishing for a camera that costs as much as a new car, others are making films with what they have, and getting their work seen by the whole world online

    i want UTA to represent me as a commercial filmmaker and fine artist. do you think those folks have ever passed around something really great, and then it gets to the big boss, and hes like "Its good but the highlights clip like shit" looool me neither thats a funny idea tho

    I know what you're saying and i couldn't agree more. That's one of the reasons i am refuse to upgrade my NX1 for a couple of years now. It's just that i like the look so much, it feels organic and it's the kind of look that i wish a mirrorless would give yet, but i am afraid it's not happening. Looking at the slow motion quality and the full frame aspect of the image i can't think of a mirrorless that has that quality in slow motion - just one of the features i have noticed.

  9. Silly question here but am going to ask anyway. Sorry for wasting your time guys. I am wondering what gear are the guys using to shoot humans of New York mini documentaries for Facebook?

    Could they use a dslr or is it a proper video camera like baby alexa or something similar?
