  1. You know how there's Godwins Law? There should really be a similar thing for 24p in any EOSHD discussion.

    Zcam Sub Forum.

    I use BM5 and the Powerextra NPF960 with DC out on top. The Portkeys BM5 comes with a short locking cord to plug it into the battery. To put in my bag I just fold the screen down flat (take the handle off if one is attached) and shut the bag. Couldn't be much simpler. Batteries last longer than my 256GB CFast2.0 card takes to fill.

    Zcam Sub Forum.

    Hi @Andrew Reid, Just wondering if it would be possible to make an Zcam sub forum? The FB group is very popular but it's a terrible way to access information, it would be cool to have a proper place to direct people and catalogue information. Cheers. p.s. Delete this thread if you want.
  4. So was I, Zcam are a major player IMO. (I mean if your camera is better than the "major players" and costs less, then you're a "major player" in my book ).
  5. I know, I have an E2 . What I meant is that they would implement Raw that would currently infringe on REDs patent.
  6. Yep, agreed. I use the Zcam e2 now with a speed booster for similar practical results.
  7. He's kinda right though no? (as much as I don't agree with some things he says). I also like the fact he doesn't give a shit and speaks his mind, I'm sure the two of you are not so dissimilar really. p.s. All the people laughing at his english/syntax I'd love to hear/see your Russian skills...
  8. I'm someone who mostly shot MLRaw before this camera as my preferred image. Now with the Zcam E2 I'm almost questioning whether Raw will really add much more to the image, it's already so good. Obviously I will try it out, but if it's not adding much I'll probably just stick with prores for ease of use. The S6 does look great, I'm really trying to decide whether an upgrade to it is worth it from the E2, as I also use anamorphic lenses and the E2 with Prores 422 48fps 4K (open gate) is a great match.
  9. I've said it countless times, but the internet will facilitate the end of mankind in one way or another.
  10. I don't see any noise issues what so ever with my shots. I mainly shoot Proress 422 48fps. If you expose properly (as you must with most cameras, just don't overexpose) the colour, detail and DR from this camera punches way above it's price point.

    I use the biggest NPF style batteries with the DC out for my Portkeys, no issue. Some smaller no name batteries I have don't fit as easy though.

    Swapping batteries is actually super simple, it looks like it would be an issue but once you've done it you realise it's easy. With a smallrig cage Cfast is easy to get to. Mount your handle on the nato rail with a quick release and it's less of an issue (I've found myself hardly shooting with the side handle anymore though). Image is great. You're right that not much good footage is floating about, it's something that held me back as well. Crop factor is the same for all codecs/speeds as far as I can see, the only change is if you use the 2.7K super16 crop mode. You're correct that most reviews online for the cam are rubbish.
