  1. Hi, will it work with ursa mini pro? It has bt functionality as well...hopefully it is the same... Joypad is great idea, would it be possible to control focus with the analog stick?
  2. Hi, recently i shot this, UM46K, raw 4:1, lenses - sigma 8-16, canon 16-35, canon 70-200. Graded and edited in resolve 14.
  3. Or maybe sigma 8-16? I have just bought it for ursa mini 4.6k, @8mm it covers full sensor (1.4x crop) with only very slight darker left and right edges (due to lens hood). I am really impressed, it is quite dark 4.5-5.6 and cannot take filters (that was my two main concerns) but i took the shot and it seems to be an exceptional lens! I have bought it used for the price of used tokina 11-16. @16mm it covers full frame.
  4. And how about ursa mini 4.6k as a POV camera? I tried it with sigma 8-16 and made this short test
  5. I have seen something like this - great little presets for premiere, i used them couple of times and looked cool. http://premierepro.net/editing/deadpool-handheld-camera-presets/
  6. I was able to get the answer from blackmagic forum. 8mm shows only very slight vignetting on UM4.6K full sensor readout, totally usable IMO. https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=60592&sid=94dfac12855cd4840fd19a1ead5504e8 I will have this lens in the next couple of days so I will make some tests (and maybe comparison with canon 10-18 STM).
  7. Thanks, holographic car was made with 3d model of 911R in after effects. We use one led panel, my friend was just waving it above the car. Thanks, yeah, maybe I could make it a little bit shorter and more dynamic, the car owner wasnt very happy when i told him, that over 12 hour shoot became 1:20 seconds clip though It was just a short, passion project without any serious planning. With this clip i just wanted to motivate other exotic car owners in my area so i could film their cars
  8. I have ordered the lens, I shoud have it next week so i will post the results. I couldnt find anything about sigma 8-16 with ursa mini 4.6k so it shoud be interesting Now I wish i had ursa pro with internal NDs, i will not be able to screw my firecrests on 8-16...
  9. @BTM_Pix, thank you very much, when i change the size of fullframe sitll you posted to 140 percent it shows some dark corners, probably it would work at around 8,2-8,5mm and 2,35:1 aspect ratio without any problem. Thanks again.
  10. Hi, i am interested in buying used sigma 8-16 for my ursa mini 4.6k for certain "dramatic" UWA shots, does anybody knows if it will cover UM sensor at 8mm? Will it vignette? Maybe somebody tried 8-16 on 1dx II (4k cropped about 1.4x)? UM sensor is slightly larger than APS-c (1.38 vs 1.6x crop) so i dont know...If it doesnt work at 8mm there is no point of having this lens, it is better to buy canon 10-18 STM which works great @10mm even with filter. What do you think? In this test i was using 10-18 on 11mm because i had huge firecrest 100mm filter holder attached (polarizer+grad) and it vignetted on 10mm, 10mm was good with just a polarizer screwed on though.
  11. I use ursa mini 4.6k for a couple of months now and 99 percent i shot raw 3:1 and 4:1. I use Cfast to sata breakout cable and record straight to couple of 500GB samsung 850evo SSDs without ANY problem. I dont understand crying about 15min on 128GB card - it is the same like on UM46K - 60min on 500GB. I have 4 SSDs, when i record in 2,4:1 aspect it gives 80min (25fps) /500GB so 320 minutes on four. SSDs are cheap. I also work straight from SSDs in resolve which is very convinient, no data copying. Adding 4 SSDs more and you have 10 hours worth of cards, should be plenty for a day shoot. For storing i can render very nice ProRes HQ BMDfilm version out of raw easily and fast. I only wonder if there will be possibility to open CFast door (to put Cfast breakout cable) in the C200 and still have camera working (5d swithces off when card doors are opened - which of course would be very bad). Everybody are waiting for GH5 400mbit codec - wait a minute, couple months ago people cried about 500mbit mjpeg codec from canon. It was sooooo ineficient, so hard to store etc. And now 400mbit is holy grail...
  12. Hi, i have just finished this clip, UM46K, all raw 4:1, mostly 50fps. Graded with resolve 14 beta 3, edited in adobe CC.
  13. Nice test but I wonder why people dont want to put both cameras into their best modes when making comparisons? There are some of them on YT and there is always GH5 very best mode (4k 10bit) vs very mediocre Ursa prores. I think the biggest selling point of UM is to have compressed raw. People compares dynamic range of both cameras but always vs Ursas prores. Why? Where is raw shadow/highlight recovery ability? That makes a lot of difference. It is like comparing volkswagen golf 1.4 vs golf R but R is allowed to only use 1st and 2nd gear and ECO shit setting. The same about low light - yeah, i know that UM46k is no very great in this area but you have no NR in camera at all. Does GH5 can disable internal NR completely? I doubt it. Thats why UM comes with free full version of resolve and its great NR built into the app. So to be fair low light tests shoud be make with some of NR applied when it is test vs GH4, Gh5 etc...
  14. ok, he now answered, that it was prores HQ UHD422 on UM46K. So we can see, that GH5 is holding up nicely with dynamic range until you unleash RAW in UM46K and play with shadow/highlight sliders in resolve. Than you can gain additional DR steps where GH5 codec is struggling and cannot really keep up. Raw settings in resolve with highlight/shadow, midtones etc. are much better than just using curves on compressed codec, gives much more clarity according to my tests. It is nice to see that 10bit GH5 codec looks the same like UM 10bit prores HQ422. I wonder what about UM 444 12bit proress though...
  15. Unfortunatelly he didnt said which codec he used with UM46K. One of the strongest features of UM46K is compressed 4.6K raw, not prores so i would like to see how the cameras best codecs compares: 4:1 4.6K raw 60fps vs 10 bit vlogL h.264 30fps (and vs 8bit 60fps) - i would like to see shadow/highlight recovery abilities with the best codecs of both cameras (there is really lots of recoverable information in UM46K highlights).
