  1. Spent a month traveling in Peru & Chile capturing aerial footage of the Atacama desert and its surroundings. Created by Cosmo Calisse & Tom Ryaboi Music: Tom Day - Enter Pyongyang Shot on a DJI Phantom 3 Drone
  2. I'm praying for a GH4 with just better color rendition and better high ISO performance. Please let it be a mirrorless so we can still shoot stills! Nobody wants a camera that can't do both photography and video
  3. Forget about 4k, they could at least offer a nice sharp 1080p codec this time, which would only involve working the software! Aside from that, I smell a $4000+ price tag on this 5Ds
  4. Sell your C100 and you can buy 2 GH4s and an A7S :D
  5. Looks like the GH4 still owns it in every category including bitrates, slowmo, flip touchscreen, 4k, 12fps photo rate, zebras/peaking etc.
  6. I think it'll come as a surprise to most people that this wasn't already out 2 years ago.
  7. Is there no secret trick to update the Mark III adapter's firmware from home instead of sending it across the planet? A bit of a nightmare.
  8. Can anyone explain to me why S-LOG2 affects RAW photos at iso 3200? I get files that are slightly noisier, but with way more dynamic range, especially in the highlights.
  9. Shot half of this ad on 5D mark 3 RAW (Magic Lantern Firmware), and half on Panasonic GH4. Can you tell the footage from the two cameras apart? Hint: 4 shots are GH4 and 3 are 5D mark3 RAW
  10. I thought the fight scenes were legendarily weak, and unnecessarily confusing.
  11. Wouldn't the 16-35 give you heavy vignetting? Or does the focal reducer simulate APS-C rather than full-frame?
  12. Not sure if anyone is using this process at all, but now Photoshop allows you to use the amazing Camera Raw to color correct footage!! Awesome features include: white balance tuning extreme shadow & highlight recovery hue, saturation & lightness control for any color Powerful sharpening & noise reduction color aberration removal & lens fringing removal lens distortion correction
  13. Hopefully they will actually release an EF to MFT version, unlike Metabones.
  14. I did notice the first frames were blocky so I picked a middle one on purpouse. I did not expect IPB to have THIS much more color information on still shots! So ALL-I should be better with motion because it saves individual (albeit more compressed) frames instead of interpolating?
  15. I just did some 1080p tests in both 200mbs ALL-I and 100mbs, and the 100mbs shots actually grade a lot better! Not sure why it's operating this way - is 200/ALL-I just a complete gimmick based on bitrate theory, but actually degrades image quality? I decided to do a test where I bumped shadows/highlights, saturation and sharpness to strain the codec. Here are a couple of stills! GH4 200mb/s GH4 100mb/s
  16. I was very impressed with the cinema 100mb/s 4kc mode compared to the 200mb/s 1080p mode. I brought both into after effects for some color grading, and the 4k footage grades and keys a LOT better than high bitrate 1080p. Macroblocking is way less visible in 4k, but for some reason, the recording time available on my card shows a lot more time remaining when in 4K cine mode than in 1080 200mb/s; nearly double the amount of recording time! There's something about how 4k compression that just works much more efficiently than 1080p, giving much more color depth and resolution even at lower bitrates.
  17. Just grabbed a GH4 today and gave it a quick low light test next to the 5D Mark 3! I tried to make this the fairest possible test: There are a lot of curve, contrast cine & dynamic range options in the GH4 that influence the noise levels in the image (and give you INSANE dynamic range), so I stuck to the following settings to really compare the sensor performance: GH4: Picture Profile standard, contrast -5, sharpness -5 Hilights & Shadows default(0,0) I.Dynamic OFF 5D3: Picture Profile standard, Sharpness minimum, contrast minimum Both cameras are at ISO 6400, f/4 and same shutter speed.
