  1. if BMPCC miss you, try LX100 !!! another crack for the price, really an artistic tool. Even if Ursa mini 4k wedding is excellent, LX100 wedding is this time, beautiful : with a quarter of former specs. LX100 - A6000 - URSA MINI 4K this is my dream team !!
  2. Sorry i was asking about Blackmagic Production camera 4K sensor filiation ?
  3. Yeah but the question is , where come from the 4K ursa mini sensor ?. BMPCC or new one ? Perhaps they worked on electronic image treatment from inside with old sensor ?
  4. don't talk about gh4 nor A7S 2 , same stuff, just enjoy this simple video recorded in Full HD prores HQ on the 4K mini Ursa (not the 4,6K 15 stops version, so let's imagine)...RED and Alexa or not so far this time...
  5. +1 the 4K sensor in ursa mini is far from the one in BMPCC4K, and it's recorded only in full HD.with canon L lenses. on the other side the video with 4.6K seems a bit washed.
  6. Blackmagic ursa mini 4K starts at only 2800€, this time we play in the big guys yard.
  7. Hello , everybody are arguing on 10 bit or not , do you see the differences etc... but that's not the point. If sony puts in the A7S II, the XVAC-S, and not the XVAC, it's clearly to tag it as a consumer product, not a professionnal one !! 10 bit or more or raw is not a question of seeing the differences, it's a question of being possible to post work shoots or not. At 8 bit, you'd better have graded during recording, no lattitude at all in front of your computer later. After that , sony marketing is entering the game, don't expect them to tell you that the product is a cripplehardware. But if the price is correct, why complaining. For myself they are surfing "sur une mode ", so price doesn't reflect reality. better watch blackmagic, kineraw products for real bargain for possibilities. A7S and now A7S 2 are overrated, seing short films from them does'nt transcend me. Still 5D mk2 produce more artistic rushes. 5 axis is cool, but we are not named gus van sant. 3500€ is a great bunch of money, imagine what A7S owners are thinking now hearing news from a A7S 2 so quickly issued, not so cool sony !!! I must admit , i've bought a6000 for 450€, which is in fact is a bargain !!
  8. 5TO for 190€ http://www.ldlc.com/fiche/PB00185401.html You have to duplicate it to call it archive. 10TO is in sight, just wait a little for the price. http://www.hgst.com/hard-drives/enterprise-hard-drives/enterprise-sata-drives/ultrastar-archive-ha10 JBOD is cheap solution for clustering disks. Duplication is necessary for backup.
  9. Xvac-s now available for a6000 without s-log, sony listened to users, great !!!
  10. Hello guys, with the xvac-s not only the video is upgraded, sound goes from ac3 256kbps to PCM 1536kbps. On the video side, xvac-s will improve the movement and blacksi think, on static shoots, nothing
  11. Hello @Andrea, what's the idea of having XVAC-S ? It's still 8 bits !!! The point is to get 10 bits over hdmi, and Slog curves ... but Sony will never give it to us...at that price !!!
  12. hello, DXO says twice sensible than the canon aps-c 550/600/7D, with extra noise removal from bionz as a bonus. Good at 3200, 6400 is way way better than on 550D, It's still under a 5D mk2, sensor size shouldn't be forgotten. Noise seems to be only in luminance, but shift to color at a point. Beware of banding on walls and dynamic range drops also, so high dynamic scene at night must be avoided. DRO raises noise, portrait raises noise and some other profiles also. Best night profile should be tested and published, who wants to cope with ? i've Recorded outdoor night concert, good footage and extra resolution really help to keep a defined picture even if noise reduction at normal setting creates artefacts. So better resolution, better dynamic range, better noise reduction inboard, better sensivity, noise in luminance only, adequate profile to find, live histogram, speed values possible till 1/4, give you great abilities in dark over other aps-c for sure.
  13. I'd prefer say better resolution, crisp. Removing AA filter from the a6000 + bionz process gives us the best defined image i see for 1080P, in fact so defined it looks sometimes more video than film. Canon aps-c is so soft at contrary.
  14. Sony I LOVE YOU !!!! http://www.intimepop.com/UPLOADSDONTDELETE/2014/midlake1-hd.mp4 sony a6000 + sony 16-50mm portrait -3 -1 +1 DRO off 1/50 Auto ISO <3200 exposure Locked , graded with mlooks in FCPX By the way if you love good music come to my blog intimepop.com Recording at this show, it was pretty hot inside mind you, the sensor after 2 songs overheated and shut down the a6000. I was shooting manual Focus, keeping my hand all the time on the 16-50 mm to focus, no harm except that the sony cam seems to use the LENS BODY as a cooler...to be confirmed but setting on AF , and avoiding touching the lens, i was able to finish the show. Don't know if it was The bionz or the sensor which overheated, but this baby is leaving on edge (size, power, processor...)
