  1. Is your iMac solid state? If not, I would make it one. OWC sells kits to do this. It's not hard at all. The SSD drive that you use does not need to be purchased from OWC, so you can just get one as large and fast as you want, and then just buy the kit from OWC. I did this to my iMac, probably about the same age as yours, and it flies like the wind. It's going to cost you a couple hundo depending on the size of the SSD you get, but it is so worth it.
  2. Don, I am very interested in using CineForm. I agree about not using proprietary stuff (this is why I won't really ever go with FCPX). I followed the links you shared and read them, but I am not tech savvy enough to do whatever that second link was describing. I have Adobe Cloud. Is there a simple way for me to get and use CineForm on a Mac? EDIT: Never mind Don, I figured it out. For those also interested, look for "GoPro CineForm" in the drop down menu and not just CineForm. Here's a link from Adobe on the matter.
  3. X-Files is actually exactly one of the shows I'm looking to buy. And great point. Even though I've heard 35mm equates to 4K res, I wonder how noticeable the difference would be. You're missing the point Jon. We're slaves to Netflix. Since becoming a subscriber it almost seems like if it isn't on Netflix... it doesn't exist. And every few months I can always pay for a month or 2 of Netflix and binge watch whatever I've missed.
  4. First let me say that it is my goal to soon wean myself from Netflix and build up my own library of digital content. The hit to my data consumption is growing and since much of what I watch is reruns, I might as well just own it. My question though is, should I begin buying readily available HD content now, or should I wait until it starts to become available in 4K? (Or how about 4K HDR?) I own neither a 4K TV, nor anything HDR, but I expect that'll change at some point soonish. So I couldn't even tell you how big a difference it is viewing 4K content on a 4K TV vs. HD content on a 4
  5. I keep checking in on this thread for more real world examples of your conversion tool. Instead the thread has turned into an anamorphic discussion. Just a thought, maybe your website could have a "Gallery" page for such examples. Folks could send you screen grabs or links to videos. I'd check it often.
  6. This question is for anyone, but I am tagging @mercer and @Oliver Daniel since they have both brought it up numerous times recently. What is dual ISO? Or what are you or others referring to when you say dual ISO? Because it could mean a couple things as far as I know. The first meaning, that I've heard is when the camera shoots simultaneously at two different ISO's and later they are combined to create an image with higher DR. I heard somewhere that @Neumann Films actually used this sometime ago with Magic Lantern or whatever. Which would make him a good candidate to use the new GH5B
  7. Boy that would be horrible. Let's hope not. Hollywood is nearly incapable of producing watchable content these days.
  8. Luke has never once, not even one time, shown a pattern for trying to throw us off. In fact he has always done the opposite. In this case I really think he wants to tell us, but can't. I even asked him a couple pages ago and he responded in the same. Luke is not trying to throw us off. Everything he posts is on point. But like you said, we will see in a bit. By the way, we don't even know if January 8 is the date for the announcement. Panasonic has still yet to officially say one word about this new camera.
  9. Even though I have no inside information or have no idea what Panasonic is going to announce, I am going to boldly stick with the numbers. Luke is posting images with resolution IDENTICAL to the current GH5. So the camera he is shooting with either has the same sensor or new version of same sensor. I think the difference is going to be an enhanced Venus Engine processor, similar or better to the one the G9 got. Which enhanced codec compression, DR, highlights, noise, low light, etc. Luke's camera is NOT a low light beast, or at least he has shown no evidence of it yet. I just think t
  10. This is not going to happen. The new camera has the same sensor as current GH5.
  11. Did you take that screenshot? That is much clearer than what I was able to render. Well, I bought the auto focus thing too. Good catch on both accounts. Is it possible the screen is larger? I don't think so, but was hoping. It looks identical other than that red ring.
  12. No. I'm almost certain it was shot in ALL-I 3328 x 2496, which with 2x anamorphic is 6648 x 2496. Download this image and see. 3840x1440 is just Luke experimenting with UHD.
  13. This is obviously not a 35mm anamorphic lens, but is a 35mm lens, shot in the same ALL-I anamorphic mode as Luke's stuff. The horizontal fov will obviously be different, but the vertical should be the same. Shot 30 inches from the subject on GH5. His head is probably bigger. But if Luke's camera had an s35 sensor in it, wouldn't his vertical fov be noticeably greater than mine?
  14. i Could not sAy aNything specific about Your pOsts, Until you sTop bEing so eLLusive. Until thiS, was LIterally sure I KnEw. now, noT so mucH. It iS getting annoying. @Neumann Films
  15. So here, Luke says he knows nothing about RAW coming to the GH5. Just a couple pages ago Luke plainly says he does not like DNG and prefers Prores or codecs like whats in the GH5 currently. What processing or cards would be necessary to even add RAW? If you watch Luke's bts vlog on youtube you'll never see an external recorder, so that's not it. If this new cam has RAW, Luke is being a horrible ambassador. Guys, is it reasonable to assume the new cam does NOT have RAW capabilities? Can we stop that talk? We know that there is a new camera, and we can probably assume it is going to cost $2
  16. Does dual ISO have something to do with color temp/WB? I thought it was an exposure thing. Ok Luke. Here's the thing. If I were trying to upload an image and it wouldn't let me, I would either... Think to myself, "Oh well. It wasn't really that important." Then I'd go on about my day.... OR Think to myself, "Oh wait. It doesn't accept tif files." Then I'd convert it to jpeg. And post it. What I would never do is realize that it didn't accept tif files, and then post that it doesn't accept tif files -- knowing full well that I could simply convert to jpeg. The fac
  17. Wait. How did you get that from Luke's image? It was a well lit scene. Most of the images he's shared were from well exposed settings. Even the night shots weren't shots that require an ultra lowlight camera.
  18. Yes. This is what I have been saying. There is, I think, something else to this footage other than an Arri lens. To me the skin and detail look stunning. The DOF is also razor thin.
  19. I dunno. I'm just wondering why you'd post something like that.
  20. Obviously Luke knows how to post photos here. @Neumann Films does this mean the new cam shoots in tif sequences?
  21. Good eye man. I'm even the one who posted that screenshot and I didn't catch it. When we posted it, Luke even said something about us looking at the wrong things. I thought he meant something else. He said it was quite comical. Now we know what he meant. So no question. New camera.
  22. Great image. I think you're right with this HLG and Leeming lut combo. I have yet to see another setup that gets skin as correct. Will probably be buying soon. Quick question, are your 16mm images shot with or without ETC enabled?
  23. @Cliff Totten @jonpais @Andrew Reid Not sure if you guys saw or read my incredibly long and boring post in the middle path thread, but I am pretty certain this new camera will either have the same sensor or a new iteration of the sensor that is in the current GH5. My logic is as follows: Luke has shared several images from his production with the new "camera" (or whatever it is). The resolution of the larger image is 6656 x 2496. Currently the GH5 has the ALL-I anamorphic mode that shoots 3328 x 2496. So, with a 2x anamorphic lens, which Luke is shooting with, the images will be exa
  24. How's the focus throw? Is it at least longer than all these af lenses?
  25. I know and this is sad right? I started that post committed to finishing it. But half way through I was like, this is just really sad. But I was committed to finishing. Hopefully in the coming months I change this around and actually do filmmaking. No. Earlier is this thread Luke clearly states that he is using a Wooden Camera Pl to M43 adapter. I guess Griffin Hammond is in on this too? Why is he shooting the screen? Is there no mic adapter in this shot? Why is the camera so inconspicuous in all of Luke's bts shots? Ok. This is a sickness. I'm out.
