    hyalinejim got a reaction from Rivhop in Magic Lantern 3.3k 16:9 RAW now with real time preview   
    https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=23041.msg216899#msg216899
    Background: user TheBilalFakhouri has unlocked correctly framed real time preview for EOS M and Danne has ported it to 5D3. Previously, Magic Lantern high res modes had a preview image that had either correct framing but in unusably slow frame rate black and white or real time colour preview with wrong framing. 
    Now, however there is high res, real time preview with correct framing.
    Kind of fun to try if you already own one of the supported cams 😁

    For video I personnally super 35/APS-C is the sweet spot. I really like micro 4/3 too for video. But I can't really appreciate taking stills on a crop sensor. For now I only use mirrorless bodies for my stills business and for my filmmaking business (except when I need to rent a certain camera for a project). But if I would buy a proper video camera, I'm pretty sure I'd go for a super 35 camera like the C300 MkIII  for video and keep a full frame camera for my photography.

    So I took the plunge. One Panasonic ambassador told me about an interesting offer with a shop in France. Besides the Panasonic offer with the Sigma 45mm offered for free, this shop will give you 3 years more warranty + a free battery. I thought it was a good deal so I pre-ordered it. I am pretty sure I would do it as I need another body to complement my S1H but this offer made me purchase it right away.
    So it should arrive by the end of september/beginning of october. I will put it through its paces as I have some interesting jobs coming along, especially one shooting a documentary for the french national television service (France Television) if it is delivered in time.
    So I'll give you all my first feedback really quick I think.
    Pretty excited by this camera as it is the one I was waiting for in the L-mount system : a smaller camera than my S1H that could still shoot awesome video to match with the bigger brother, being quite smaller to be my B-cam/gimbal cam, also my main stills camera, and one that I could bring everyday to shoot some street and mundane photography (without the hassle to release the S1H from the rig/cage between pro gigs) and one camera that I could take on vacation without sacrificing any quality in stills picture and video.

    For the world's smallest full frame stills camera it has very good video capabilities.
    And for a full frame RAW shooting video camera it has very good stills capabilities.
    Its not the very best stills camera that I've got and its not the very best video camera that I've got but if you told me it was the only camera that I could have then I wouldn't cry myself to sleep about that by any means.
    If you accept the obvious like no EVF, no IBIS, less than stellar AF and look on it as being an interchangeable lens version of the original Sony RX1 but with a 4K full frame version of the original BMPCC available at a flick of the mode switch then a good time can be had by all.
    I've been using it with cheap compact M primes like this 7Artisans 35mm f2 in these shots to keep it small and it is another thing to bear in mind that it can get a bit unbalanced with the larger L mount lenses, though not the 45mm f2.8.

    Ok, my trick works apparently. Tested by yourboylloyd on Magic Lantern Forum

    Record as you wish.
    When overheat occur. stop recording. Change the date.
    Drop the power (using the screw story or dumb battery)
    Put it back.
    Timer is gone!
    All camera parameters are saved. No need to open the camera, no need to lose your clip.
    BOOOMMMMM

    hyalinejim got a reaction from John Matthews in Youtube 4K quality is so poor you might as well shoot 1080p   
    Love me some 1080p!
    A fortnight ago, I shot 5 hrs of interviews for a 5 minute corporate video. 1080p 100mbps all the way. I do lots of jobs like this and like to keep everything I shoot in case a client wants to use it again. I hate when hard drives fill up and I have to deal with offloading projects to external backup. Give me clean 1080p every day of the week!
    I shudder when I see specs like "8k, 960mbps". Where is all this footage gonna go?

    They're all relatively wide shots, so not too taxing for IBIS. As long as you're using it to steady handheld shots, like here, I'm sure it'll be fine. But Wong's videos show that it's just not a substitute for a gimbal in the same way that a GH5 or S1 might be - if you really need to do a walking shot but don't have a gimbal.
    I'm impressed by the highlight retention in the market scene - mixed light, low light and garish light sources that tend to blow out are all handled nicely and it looks very natural.

    Me too, I really like the dynamic range of these Panasonic FF cameras. About the IBIS, Gerald Undone used a 50mm without walking on his video and the footage looked jerky.

    Dunno if PetaPixel is banner here also, but they have an article for a infrared conversion company in New Jersey that tore down a R6 and found a real time chip controller that is attached to the internal battery (they credited EOSHD there). Not much new info, but an interesting investigation path.

    I think I'd probably prefer to buy a €2000 GH6 and continue to use my compatible glass than spend €2000 on an S5 and have to faff about with lens options from scratch.
    I'm almost perfectly happy with EF glass and a Speedbooster XL which makes the 2x crop of M43 a 1.28x instead. That is a very sweet spot if you need to go wide or if you need narrow DOF. Then if I need reach or more DOF I can swap that out for a non-speedboosted adapter. This makes for a very versatile system.

    It does but it's 4:2:0 not 4:2:2 in 4k 60.
    Shouldn't be an issue for the contrasty profiles but there might be banding in V-Log if you push it hard.

    I agree about the financial pain of moving to L mount. If I were to do it I think I'd stick to my EF lenses and just manual focus them like I've always been doing. The image is nicer than the GH5. But would any of my clients notice? Probably not!

    I care! You made a brilliant point about the smoothness of the Panasonic S series V-Log compared to what other manufacturers are doing with their profiles at the same price point. That's worth more to me than AF.

    Neither does it seem to be available in Ireland (who are thankfully still in the EU 🤣), so it must be a continental Europe thing. But I guess you could try ordering from a continental seller if you're in Ireland or UK?
