  1. Where might one find good normalization (technical) LUTs for HLG-1, HLG-2, and HLG-3 that can be used in, say, Resolve or another editing platform? Not really interested in Catalyst Browse or Catalyst Prepare. Thanks
  2. Follow the settings listed in the first post of this thread. It is highly unlikely that your camera does not do this.
  3. Still looking forward to seeing this when your schedule permits
  4. Don't know if it is the Edelkrone, the tripod, or the two not being tightly scewed into each other -- but there is a whole lot of sagging going on when that camera is at the extreme ends of the slider.
  5. Thank you Andrew. Looking forward to it.
  6. I like the samples posted so far in this thread. However, it would be nice to see some more daytime skin tone shots with the A7SII, and even better, with Canon comparisons shot at the same time. Thanks in advance.
  7. Came-TV at NAB 2016: Came Optimus Pricing and pre-order information to be released soon
  8. I assume they would rather have control of the entire device (stabilizer/software/camera) -- than deal with myriad customer service problems caused by different camera/lens combinations, software settings and operator errors. At the same time, in spite of having complete control, I've read a number of posts regarding performance issues with the OSMO. At least DJI can attempt to address those problems knowing that the hardware in the field that's been sold is uniform.
  9. I've been using the DSC Labs Front Box One Shot for white balance, but on run-and-gun it can be inconvenient. Anyone have experience with the ExpoImaging ExpoDisc White Balance Filter? Seems highly-rated and it might be a bit easier to use when on the run.
  10. A considerable amount of time has passed, and this news has already been well-publicized, but I wanted to alert the OP that Sony recently announced a very fairly-priced FE 50mm lens that might suit your needs: Sony FE 50mm f/1.8 Lens
  11. Is this product possibly being redesigned or end-of-life? I see it is still for sale on Edelkrone's website, but B&H lists it as no longer available. Just curious. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1205239-REG/edelkrone_so_sliderone.html
  12. This company has a long and storied history of extremely bad behavior and customer service. Their overly-aggressive and accusatory posts on DVXuser would be laughable -- if they weren't so pathetic and repugnant. I wouldn't buy one of their products if they were the only game in town.
  13. Thank you all for the DS1 comments and samples. It seems like a good product, but the B&H reviews are a bit concerning.
  14. @stuckat1 I agree with all of your comments above, with the possible exception of the one having to do with display frequency. A video assist monitor that is being used for critical evaluation purposes must be able to lock onto the frequency of the incoming HDMI signal -- otherwise the viewer will see cadence errors -- or, more likely nothing at all. In the US, even lower-end consumer monitors will lock onto 1080p / 23.976, 24, 59.94 and 60. As closed ecosystems, Android tablets have no such demand, they are purpose-built to display only their own graphics output -- and nothing else. Even in a scenario where an external video capture solution allows for real time ingest of frequencies not fundamentally supported by a tablet's display, unless its signal processing capabilities are on the order of Teranex or Alchemist, cadence errors will significantly undermine its usefulness. The hybrid monitors I linked are interesting products -- if you have the specific need. There are also a number of small, portable, HDMI-based "second screen" products that are intended to increase screen real estate for laptop users. However, none of these products are designed to support common camera output frequencies. At the end of the day, it makes more sense to just purchase a dedicated video assist monitor. There are plenty to choose from -- some quite inexpensive. However, like everything else, you get what you pay for.
