  1. @BTM_Pix Any plans to support iOS? I haven't looked through every post so not sure if you already talked about this but, I'm not so much an apple Fanboy but I really can't stand Android. I'm going to be picking up an iPad Mini in the near future and would love to be able to use it with my p4k.
  2. Good to see that you're getting closer to the finished project. I'm super happy for you and can't wait to see it. I know you'll have a ton of exposure from this site at least. A suggestion, I would spend more time on the graphic design elements. The composition of the shot is lovely btw. However, you'd be surprised at how important good design is, for posters, flyers, thumbnails, intro credits, epk's, whatever. Graphic design is actually the first frames of your film. People are already creating an opinion of your movie based on the design, believe it or not, having not seen even a secon
  3. This looks great. The only problem for me is I don't like the top mount. Perhaps with a cage I could mount it on the left, but would it block the HDMI port? ?
  4. So my client decided to go over and above and buy the 256GB sandisk sd's instead of the 128 ones that I recommended. Thoughts or experience with the 256 cards? Think there will be stability issues? Should we return them and just go with the 128 ones? @Jim Giberti @Emanuel @xzobinx
  5. 1) Take twice as many as half of the batteries @fuzzynormal recommends. 2) Have a sense of humor. Taking yourself seriously is for amateurs. C) Real artists ship.
  6. Are you using the 95MB/s ones? And you're shooting HQ? 422 or LT would be just fine then right?
  7. Looks like Apple is breaking their pattern. Roku in talks with Apple about AirPlay 2 support.
  8. If you haven't been paying attention, Apple, for the last year or two, has been stealing entertainment execs and producers. It is widely known that they are producing original content for a soon to be released TV streaming service. Here's an article about the known content under production. With names like Spielberg and Oprah, they are definitely all in. To know why this is such a big deal for us, the smaller filmmaker, you must be aware of 3 things. The Netflix model is unsustainable for producers of original content, maybe even Netflix. Subscription conglomerates are the end of
  9. I can speak for only the US, but they are delivering in less than a month for sure. I've purchased 3, multiple vendors. There are thousands in circulation for certain. The post above from Finland is a real bummer. But here in the US you can get one if you just order and wait a couple weeks.
  10. .braw will be invaluable because it gives RAW flexibility at prores file sizes. It also seems to create more organic detail than RAW, perhaps close to prores? I "want" it. Same guy shot this one. I'd seen this and really enjoyed it. I think the newer one has a more Kodak grade which I love. They're both great. I'm also a massive fan of the Southwest and desert. I'd shoot every single frame there if I had my way.
  11. In the past the law if pareto stated that 80% of results come from 20% of causes. I've seen this ring true so many times and with tech its more like 90:10. Now with the Alexa vs P4K we have a cost difference that's more like 98:2. So is the P4K 98% the camera at 2% the cost? Seems like it could be. Also considering that the P4K beats the Alex's in other specs like size, low light, media and peripheral costs, and of course price, the argument could be made the P4K is the better camera. Pair it with the right lens and then definitely. The 18-35 continues to impress. I'm out of town but my
  12. Statistics are like bikinis, they don't show everything.
  13. Is there a solution for attaching it to the P4K other than velcro or zip ties? Also, has anyone tried powering the camera from a monitor yet like the SmallHD focus (or any one of the cheaper knock offs)? I wonder how much time you'd get out of a Sony NP powering the monitor and camera. Is a couple hours conceivable?
  14. Keep in mind that the "Hybrid" aspect is entirely irrelevant. It is a little to not used feature for narrative cinema/shows. I guess I could imagine some rare uses for stills, but you get the point. Now as a freelancer/traveler/hobbyist that's a different story.
  15. @Sage, I have very little free time of lately and therefore little time to post, but your V3 is so nice I am astonished. In fact, I am so impressed that I was, for a short time, considering not trading the GH5 for P4K since the look you created there is amazing. But... ...this means you will be creating your conversion for the P4K? Because, YES!!! If so, your conversion plus .braw will be so potent that I can't see needing much in an upgraded camera for some time. I am still so busy that I can wait for both .braw and your conversion. Please please please keep us posted on the P4K
  16. So I know no one has them in stock, but is there a dealer in the states that we know/guess will get the P4K sooner than later?
  17. Not sure if you guys have seen this one yet. It's long. Skip here and there through it if you like. I've personally shot a LOT in the desert. This is what it's supposed to look like. I shot with multiple different cameras including the BMPCC and it looked very similar. Personally I think this camera is all it's cracked up to be, the physical quirks aside which will eventually get remedied.
  18. Good lord. Are we talking about cameras or camera companies? Or members of this forum? Regardless none resemble a dictatorship in any way shape or form. Do the definition of words even matter any more?
  19. Would love to hear your thoughts about my power solution. As you'll see my solution is dependent on being able to power from an external source while also having an internal battery in the camera that charges while connected to an external source. I don't know if this is supported yet, if we need that coming soon cable solution first, but regardless I believe it'll be supported at some point. Also, I have become accustomed to leaving my camera on all day during production. I love this. For some reason it is a constant source of purpose and inspiration. Whether I'm holding the camera or it
  20. With the addition of USB C, does that mean we can finally connect to a camera? There were at least two images during the presentation of the iPad Pro connected to a DSLR. The P4K has USB-C. Can they talk to each other? Even if the Pro can't be a live monitor, it'd be awesome to be able to view .braw file dailies from the P4K on an iPad in the field, especially if you are somewhat remote. Thoughts?
  21. Did you touch either, or is that straight ooc? The bottom looks like the darks have been pulled up.
