    tweak reacted to Laurier in Roadmaps for Meike S35 and FF cine lenses   
    Most cine camera are still EF or PL, beside there are no affordable and relatively compact cine primes made for super 35 on the market in those mounts.
    Yes there is Rokinon for EF but the built quality is terrible. ( the barrels get loose and you cant tighten them up because they are plastic.)
    Still lenses have terrible throw in the 24mm and wider focals, and are usually 2.8 
    I quite interested by a set that finally have a relatively fast and affordable 18mm .

    Wow! That's a game changer for ultra low priced PL lenses, and about time. 

    Now it might finally make sense to buy one of those crazy cheaply priced URSA Mini PL bodies, or a C500/C300 PL mount body.

    I still see focus issues regularly on youtube channels that feature vlogging type content.  Sure, we have DPAF and PDAF, but if the camera decides to do a beautifully-smooth speed-controlled phase-detect focus-pull to the wrong f*cking thing, then it's still a wasted shot.  Watch some of the reviews of the new Sony vlogging camera to see people talking about how it has a new focus mode that is far better for things like product shots, and remember that when someone says that a new product is better then it means that the old one had issues that they wanted to be fixed.
    Luckily, if you're holding the camera while filming yourself, manual focus combined with an aperture setting that isn't too ridiculous can fix those focus issues!
    Besides, at this point if you're a vlogger who only cares about content and want the filming process to essentially leave you alone, then there are many smaller sensor cameras to just crank out content.  The vloggers that want to have larger sensors and larger apertures are also somewhat likely to be interested in the MF aesthetic.

    Same here. Would be cool if they offer nice PL to EF adapters to go with them, super versatile then.

    My EF and F lenses follow me from camera to camera, so it will be a long time before I buy anything other than EF. I'd love to see Rokinon get some competition for affordable EF cine style lenses. It's great that they also have mirrorless mounts as well.
    Gotta love the #vlogger on Meike's tweet about manual focus cinema lenses though.

    That sounds like the M50's future to me. I hope the M50 will be up and running sometime this year or next...who knows, but I'm hanging on :). 
    Greg has done something really nice for the M50 so far, check it out:

    1/4000 would be typical in mid-day sun.  I'll shoot some video tomorrow and apply the trial plug-in.  See what happens.
    Usually have a bunch of ravens flying around....filming that should provide a decent stress test.

    You could skip the cage, and just use your own phone as a screen. (or a cheap sub $200 monitor. Many people use an external monitor with their BMPCC4K anyway)
      
    They are going hard in making sure there are lots of accessories too!

    Cheaper than an X-T3 at launch.

    Much more capable specs than the Pocket 6K.
    Don't forget the cost of the screen and cage though.

    tweak reacted to Andrew Reid in I really like the look of 360 degree shutter. Anyone else?   
    Could be useful for 4K/60p as well, for a more natural motion blur in slow-mo shots. 180 deg shutter is 1/120 for 60p, which eliminates most of the nice 24p look.

    I can see why it works well for the tommy guns
    I find it useful in low light - 1/25 means you can use a lower ISO
    All depends on the shot how it's going to turn out. Quick handheld camera movement looks a bit too blurry.
    180 shutter is also too slow for some things... it all depends. Usually it's perfect.
    I am going to try shooting everything without NDs and using my own shutter speed in post, with the motion blur in Resolve Studio 16 working so well just now... It gives you ability to choose the look in post rather than have motion blur baked into the source material!

    16-H, 8z, Elmoii, B&H are all the same, there is no one in this world that could pick them apart in a blind test. IQ differences are more sample variation and age than anything else (also all can come with different colour coatings).

    On the contrary, ML is thriving.  You can't go by that nightly build page, as that is not where the action is. Most of the nightly builds that everyone uses are not official.
     
    To see the current activity, go to the main forum page, and scroll down to the bottom section titled, "Recently Updated Topics."  After a brief scanning of just a few of the top messages, I see the following active developers:  Danne, masc, cmh, Levas, ilia3101, reddeercity, 2blackbar, critix.

    tweak reacted to tupp in FAKE ANAMORPHIC - CANON EOS M2   
    Aren't MLV raw files are "raw?"  If so, such files have the same initial linear contrast as Canon h264 does, before the in-camera processing.  Thus, with the proper post processing, one should be able to duplicate the contrast of the h264 files (combined with a given picture style).
     
    I have dabbled a little with MLV files and MLV-App.   It seems one can output images with an exceedingly flat contrast by merely using one of the log profiles, if one wants to grade in a program other than MLV-App.
     
    On the other hand, ML instability and full res capability are understandably important concerns.

    Bokeh can be made to look anamorphic but the thing these anamorphake lenses don't reproduce is the differing look in the foreground compared to the background (or in focus vs out of focus areas). This is where true anamorphics (especially those with bigger squeeze such as 1.75-2x) get a lot of their look. Bokeh shape is part of it but it's not everything.
