    DJI ronin S best settings?

    I found reading the manual to be very helpful - all sorts of useful information in there.......

    Best gimbal for Pocket 4K?

    Looks a bit unsteady to me.

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    I've not noticed any issues wide open on the EF-M2 + 18-35 sigma on either my GH5 or P4k. I reckon the OP of that link had a bad sample or had not set it up correctly.

    Panasonic GH5 - all is revealed!

    Especially if you have to rescue very underexposed footage

    Panasonic GH5 - all is revealed!

    Both Neat image and Resolve Studio NR is very good for cleaning up high iso and slightly under exposed footage but it can't fix seriously underexposed footage which is what the OP will get with the GH5 + 12-60 in a very low light environment.

    Nikon Z6 + Ninja V vs Blackmagic Pocket 4k

    Game over BM....... Apart from the fact the P4k comes in at less than 1/2 the price of the Nikon / atomos.

    DJI Ronin S

    The 18-35 may be a bit heavy. I do have that combo but haven't tried mounting it yet. It's not so much the total weight but the amount of mass away from the center that the motors may not be able to control as quickly as a lighter lens.

    I got my Ronin-S direct from DJI for £500 when they were on offer a few weeks back. I assume these are Grey imports with no import duty or VAT to pay on the listed price?

    Just a few tips - the P4k fits best on the Ronin -S without a cage and no way will the tilta's side mounted battery work unless you reverse the rig . On any gimbal the more weight and bulk you can take off the camera or keep at the center of the mass the better. Sony NP-F battery sled + dummy battery can be mounted on the Ronin grip. The P4k and Ronin-S is a great combo as the 5" screen means you don't need an ext monitor. Like I said earlier a P4k + Ronin-S still comes in cheaper than a GH5s......

    I'd have to disagree Construction is fine for a camera at this price level. Absolutely love the control layout which is simply the best and most intuitive I have ever used. Form factor is great and fits on my Ronin-s without a problem and quite how you would fit a 5" screen into an XC10 style body is beyond me - really? As others have said it's form factor is decided by one of it's greatest features which is 5" screen I can see the voltage fine in my batteries both internal and external. Yes it needs batteries and a lot of batteries if you are going to drive a bright 5" screen. What do you suggest as an alternative - bigger batteries so you get an even bigger camera or a smaller screen? A hinged screen would I agree be nice but at what cost in size and price? Until someone does a teardown and we can see the cooling system which may well be for the screen this may be an impossibility without a significant cost and size increase.

    Why so angry about camera you don't own and don't intend to own ?

    There's not much stuff you need to buy. You don't need C-FAST as an ext 1tb drive is less than £200 and give you nearly 3 hours of 4k 24p - how much is 3 hrs of V90 cards ??? An external battery sled for a Sony NP-F is £30 and many already have these batteries. Anything else is not essential and is an optional add on for any camera. Did I not mention that you also get a free copy of Resolve studio with the P4k? :). You could add a gimbal or external recorder/monitor to a P4k and still come in cheaper than a GH5s. Now I'm not saying the Gh5s isn't a good camera and in some ways may be better for some users but it's not at all in the same price range.

    I'm glad the P4k doesn't look like the BMPCC as I didn't want a 'pseudo film look' to have to wrangle back into something that is mixable with other cameras. I didn't buy the GH5s as it was not as good as the P4k for what I wanted for an addition to my GH5 i.e - RAW, internal 60p 4k and ProRes and it's also a hell of a lot more expensive esp when you fit it out with a set of V90 cards.

    Atomos Ninja V - Problem with Input Gamma?

    A few months ago (after raising this twice with Atomos) they said they would refer it to their development team...... I also think it's the responsibility of the camera manufacturers to allow users to select data or video range as the HDMI output. Having said that I don't believe it's simply a data vs Video range issue as I observed that the scopes were accurate but the issue was with the zebras. Someone from BM in an old thread said the zebras in the P4k are driven from the Luma (Y) channel which is fair enough in a YCbCr codec like ProRes but the scopes are in RGB and NLE grade controls work in RGB so there is obviously some problem with the YCbCr - RGB translation. Other external device manufacturers seem to be able to do it right though so I advise people to keep on telling Atomos they need to fix this.

    From 6d to GH3, is it worth it?

    I agree I must have been doing something wrong looking at some of the samples here and from my archive.
