  1. it is a desktop hard drive, powered through the mains with a dc adapter. I requested a replacement from Amazon. Not 100% sure if it is faulty, but I don't like the sound of it.
  2. My brand new G- Technology 4TB drive makes a single clicking sound every 3-4 seconds. Is that normal? It does not sound very reassuring. Should I return it to the online retailer - Amazon? First one - a 10 year G-Technology 1TB firewire desktop drive. Still running strong. You can only hear the spinning. https://streamable.com/udt3p4 Second one - the drive in question. A brand new G-Technology 4TB usb3 desktop drive. Click repeats rythmically every 3-4 seconds. https://streamable.com/r28lrx Please advise !!! I hate to pay for the postage to send to Amazon, but per
  3. Hey. Yes. that did the trick. How stupid of me. I haven't used the custom modes for a long time. It works perfect now. thanks!
  4. The R5 settings sounds fantastic. I wish I had this! Although I prefer the video mode because I get the audio levels and the 16:9 crop that helps with composition, I'll try the custom modes. Perhaps it will do the trick and it is something I desperately need.
  5. wow. that sounds very convenient. Damn, and I thought I was done thinking about the S1h.
  6. when I change the shutter speed for still purposes in M mode and go back to video mode, it doesn't change on my camera. It always carries the shutter speed that was used last.
  7. Is there any hybrid camera that lets you quickly change between photo and video settings by storing the different settings on memory? I remember when it was first introduced the gh4 was marketed this way?Perhaps I am wrong, but then again one would still have to shoot with the same shutter/setting - not different settings for each mode. I have been using an A7s for both video and photography for a client and have difficulty every time I need to change the mode because of the 1/50 shutter rule. So when I switch to photo (M), I need to adjust the shutter and then adjust the iso or the varia
  8. I think I have watched all the c70 vs a7siii comparisons. My heart wants Canon but my mind says Sony ! The ergonomics,nds,xlrs,colors of the C70 vs the Sony AF.
  9. The Fx6 seems the perfect camera for me, something to aim for in the future. For now I am most probably leaning towards the a7siii, although I dislike the form factor/ergonomics/etc.
  10. In my case, I didn't care for 4k when the first A7s was marketed as such, (which was of course a fat lie, as it required an external recorder) and for personal projects I don't see the need. Perhaps only for punching into a closer frame for talking heads. As one man everything, I do need a good AF. It doesn't have to be stellar. Just good and reliable so trying to find this fine line. In Greece the C70 will cost me 500 euros more than an A7siii + a 24-105, so I think I am torn between those two. This reviewer said good things about the c70 autofocus. Or perhaps save 2000 euros and
  11. Thanks for the suggestion. It never crossed my mind. Don't know it. Looking online but cannot find it in Europe to check used prices. If I go this way why not The C100 mark ii? Is it because of the codec?
  12. This too, but I believe the 32 bit will help people like me who have to juggle many responsibilities in one role.
  13. Ok. So I just found out that both these cameras can record proxies at the same time as the full res file. This seems to solve the problems with the computer.
  14. What about the XF-AVC ? Is it as tough? Is the Sony Xavc the lightest from all of these? This could also be a deciding factor as I cannot upgrade my computer now.
  15. As a side note, is the hevc more heavy on the computer than the XAVC? This is another consideration I have to take into account. My 2015 MacBook Pro.
