    Anytime someone is questioning why there's shots in slo-mo, it's cheating.

    tweak reacted to IronFilm in Rode Wireless Go - A Warning   
    I think for $199 to get any kind of quality audio out of a wireless kit is going to be your base level of expectations. 

    And Rode is not a stamp of approval for quality, as they've made some solid low budget projects but they can certainly be a bit hit or miss with sometimes cost savings really showing. 
     Just do it! Be polite and professional about it, and explain how it is for her benefit to fully capture all the emotion of her special day.

    tweak reacted to Kisaha in Rode Wireless Go - A Warning   
    I am a pro sound man of 20 years and I didn't call anyone stupid. 200‚ā¨ in sound is the lowest of the low and the expectations are low too.
    I own 5 Samyang lenses for my lesser projects, but when we shoot better ones we rent. I do not expect my Samyangs to be Cooke quality and I do not complain that they aren't.
    I just bought a Sachtler Flowtech with an FSB for my small cameras, I also own Manfrotto and Benro tripods, guess which one is better and why I had to spend 4 and 5 and 6 times more money.

    tweak reacted to meudig in What's your take on jumping between different aspect ratios in one video?   
    Generally I dislike changes in aspect ratio. It makes me think of youtubers who go from vlog-style to some "cinematic montage", even if the Kraig Addams example posted by @kye is pretty cool.
    Talking about narrative function - I watched the latest season of 13 Reasons Why (season 3) last week, and they frequently swap between two aspect ratios along with color changes (some scenes are even black and white). It is seemingly used to distinguish between timelines. Present day is represented by cool color and 2.22:1 aspect ratio while flashbacks are 1.77:1 and warm tones. 
    The aspect ratio change bothered me to no end in the first couple of episodes, but I barely noticed it at the end of the series.

    tweak reacted to androidlad in Fujifilm hint at 44x33 large format "GFX-H100" filmmaker's camera / open gate 4K3K   
    Ha, I've explained many times, current commercial CMOS sensors behave linearly, and linear 12bit = 12EV = 12 stops of DR.
    Yes you can store unlimited DR in 8bit, that's called logarithmic encoding.

    tweak got a reaction from kaylee in What's your take on jumping between different aspect ratios in one video?   
    I don't mind it, but sometimes I think it looks a bit choppy, obviously it's a personal choice. 

    I decided to do it in this video where I cut true anamorphic with Fisheye angles and the reception was mixed, some people didn't like it, but it got people talking. I'm un-decided really, but I think if you can make it flow it's cool. I like to see 8mm 4:3 chopped with crispy 16:9 35mm, but I think chopping from 2.35 to 4:3 is hard to make look fluid.

    I'd be miffed if I purchased something without knowing I'd have to pay for a firmware update, as opposed to an increase in price for a camera I hadn't purchased yet.

    tweak reacted to Andrew Reid in NOPE! Canon did NOT remove 24p from the 90D and EOS M6 II to save H.264 licensing fees   
    A particularly strange virus has spread across the internet, which seems to infect people defending Canon's latest cameras, shorn of the cinema frame rate 24p.

    tweak reacted to UncleBobsPhotography in Sony RX0 II gains Micro Four Thirds interchangeable lens mount with special mod   
    For me, the value of a GoPro is that it's small, robust, waterproof and "fire-and-forget". Modding it with a new mount removes all of those advantages. I guess it would still be the smallest camera with 4k60p at a high bitrate, but for most practical cases, a GH5 would make more sense. Then there is of course the entertainment aspect of doing camera mods.

    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.

    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.

    Yes you can do 4K with ML. Yes the framing is impractical for any professional application. Yes they haven’t fixed this on the mark iii and probably never will. That camera doesn’t seem to get much development nowadays

    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.
