    Still no punch-to-focus while recording. That sucks as people have asked for it for literally years. ūüėě

    I should receive mine real soon (it is in transit), I will test it really soon cause I will have some run and gun shooting coming in the next weeks. I bought it purposely for these kind of situations when I want/need to go light and don't want to deal with my mattebox and if I need to be on a low profile to shoot on the streets. I have some variable circular NDS but I never liked circular VNDs always some issues and the fact to have several diameters for my lenses is problematic. My mattebox is quite light (Polarpro Basecamp Mattebox) but I want to be even lighter than this sometimes ūüėȬ†

    There are now L mount adapters for pretty much all lenses, including PL amd medium format speedboosters.
    For EF, Sigma do the MC21 adapter but the new one on the block that is of particular interest is the Fotodiox one which also has an integral variable ND in the mount.
    For anyone with a lot of EF glass, thats an attractive option as it turns the L mount cameras into the mythical true hybrid with ND.
    How good the AF is with the adapter is unknown to me though.
    I'm going to get one for my fp to find out.

    Can we leave chatter about equivalence to another thread? Everyone has already made up their mind about sensor size.
    I'm interested in S5 news.

    hyalinejim reacted to Stronz in Canon Cinema EOS C70 - Ah that explains it then!   
    The R5 was primed to be near perfect - on paper it had everything people wanted for a reasonable price and then Canon went and throttled it.
    So instead they offer this, ‚Äúa proper video camera‚ÄĚ with essentially the same form factor but smaller sensor, no ibis, no viewfinder, and looks like no flip screen?
    So you‚Äôre paying $2,000 more for what? Built in NDs and the permission to use the camera without it locking down due to ‚Äúoverheating‚ÄĚ?
    I’m curious what about this C70 is better than what the R5 should have been?

    Absolutely. 
    Any time you see a log profile with a higher than base ISO (400 in the case of GH5 V Log L versus 200 in the regular profiles) the camera is "underexposing" and then lifting to give more highlight headroom.
    So aside from differences in the contrast curve (which might crush highlight detail in regular profiles), you will also get one more stop before clipping with V Log L. It has 4 stops above middle grey and many more below. And you can trade clean shadows for more highlights by intentionally underexposing further and lifting in post.
    So it's worth it IMO

    Yep, got the leaked size / weight of the S5, compared to the GH5:

    GH5 - 138.5x98.1x87.4 mm (camera body only, excluding protrusion) - weight 724 with battery and sd card), 645g body only
    S5 - 132.6 x 97.1 x 81.9mm (excluding protrusions) - weight 714g (with battery and sd card), 630g body only

    hyalinejim reacted to horshack in Canon EOS R5 so-called overheat timer defeated by a single screw in battery door   
    Just tried it for a longer video, this time 10:00, to test two splits and it still works. Two perfectly-good .MP4 files, each approx 4GB and 4:41 in length, and an RP with amnesia after powering it back on.
    The only limitation of this technique is 32GB, since Canon cameras format all cards > 32GB as exFAT, even though FAT32 supports volumes up to 2TB. But there's a workaround for that as well - format the >32GB card on computer instead. Windows 7/10 wont let you format cards > 32GB to FAT32 but there are third-party utilities that will. I just used http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm on a 64GB card and the camera accepted the card with no complaints. Recording to it right now on my RP to test splits for a very long video. And while Windows wont let you format >32GB cards to FAT32 it will mount them just fine.

    Hi Andrew thanks for your work, I spent a lot more than 4000 $ !!! I bought R5 + 4 batteries, adapter ef -r, 2 cf express san disk 512gb, total 6670 euros !!!! And I mostly work with videos !! It is absurd that I find myself having a room advertised as 8k !! and to work without problems I have to use a poor 4k !!! Canon be ashamed !!! And I hope that all the owners join in a class action to ask for these limitations to be lifted and for canon to pay !!! They are just stupid! even for their speakers !! how many people like me work with videos and photos and spend almost 7000 euros to work with videos and photos and don't want cinema eos because they don't take photos !!! Canon is up to be stupid and free all the potential of this camera !!!

    We already have 5K in the GH5.  There's only one mode that uses it, but it's there and is used for downscaling in most of the other modes of course.
    I'm much more interested in a camera that does 4K and 1080p better.  I'd take Dual-ISO or eND over any increase in resolution any day of the week.  We already have 400Mbps 4K 422 10-bit ALL-I, there aren't many people who can claim much benefit for a "better" output file than that, especially considering that the 4K killer mode is also already downsampled.
    EOSHD seems to be one of the most technically savvy and demanding community of GH5 users and have a look at how we're delivering.  Resolution is not the answer.

    Ok. I know many dps shooting tv dramas, indie and studio films in Korea using af. But I guess your experience and reality is all that matters.
    And I specifically said docus, weddings, bts and indie filmmaking so it vibes with most of you in the West but again I guess your 'pro' opinion is reality. Maybe I need to reboot my simulation.

    If you have some time and don't mind fiddling around a bit, you could buy some second hand and then sell the ones you don't like.  That way you get to test them.
    I found the primary difference between having one physically and simulating in post was that physical ones flare light-sources out of frame, and also flare more/less depending on how bright the light is, but of course you can't adjust them - it does what it does and you're stuck with it.  In post it's the opposite.
    The other path is to simulate stuff in post and do a bunch of tests and see if that gives you what you need.

    Legendary screen writer/director Paul Schrader updated his book 'Transcendal Style' a few years ago.

    Sometimes the academic discourse around this genre can be more enticing than the films themselves. (Bela Tarr comes to mind)

    Or "8 1‚ĀĄ2" as it's known in English speaking countries. It still feels fresh today, perhaps because¬†the ways in which it bends the familiar rules of narrative have already been¬†absorbed and reproduced in popular culture.
    You could make a link between Fellini's film and the original self-referential and rule breaking masterpiece, Laurence Stern's 1759 "The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman".
    People have been playing with conventions for a long time, are doing it right now and will continue to do so. Don't disregard contemporary experimental cinema as too obscure, because this is where it's all happenning. It requires a rewiring of your brain, but once rewired it's a joyride.
    The vast majority of film festivals pander to mainstream tastes. And it's difficult to sit and watch cutting edge experimental stuff at home. I like a screening environment where you sit amongst other people and watch something from start to finish. I had my mind blown at Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin.
