    tweak reacted to Alt Shoo in Z-CAM quietly announce 8k and 6k FULL FRAME cameras - no joke!   
    Z-Cam is a company that is going to disrupt some concepts in the cinema camera industry. After NAB, there should be some insight for many cinematographers on what gear to invest in. Z-Cam and their offerings will be on the short list for these individuals, including myself.

    They are using the same bodies and systems etc. I have faith, they are making huge leaps all the time. People said Prores would never happen, yet they have delivered and are about to release a new firmware with Raw, HLG and some other goodies. I don't know how they do it, but they do. 
    I recently purchased an E2 and I'm really impressed, for the money it's amazing, even if they changed nothing from this point I'd still be satisfied I got my monies worth.

    Give them the benefit of the doubt. Most of us love the underdog - I hope they pull it off.

    tweak reacted to Andrew Reid in Canon M50 - Magic Lantern   
    Magic Lantern have hacked the Canon M50 today, in a surprise move, since it was previously thought Canon had blocked the M50 from loading any scripts.
    Features of the first version of Magic Lantern for the M50 dubbed "Hello World" include 6K RAW video (using pixel binning) and animated wallpapers.

    In a way yes.  Although there's a great phrase that keeps coming to mind "as much as the market can bear".
    I know when I've come upon yet another example when Apple or Microsoft or someone else deliberately do something in their interests and against mine sometimes it really gets me agitated and I contemplate switching to a different brand, and the question really is "how much of this sh*t can I bear before I'll be motivated enough to switch companies".  Normally the thought that follows is that it's so much work and so I'll stick with them, and then the next thought is that they are absolute geniuses at knowing just how much we will bear.
    There's an entire type of product strategy where you develop a product that does 17 new things and you work out what the minimum number of new features would get people to upgrade, and then you cripple all the other features you could have given the customer and sell that.  Same next year.  You can get half-a-dozen models out of the same hardware just by trickling out the improvements, and sell up to 6 times the number of cameras that you would have sold if you just released the features all at once.

    Looks like they're seriously looking into MFT now and are going to do a MFT S35 camera!

    I got the E2 recently, coming from a GH5 I'm really impressed. I'm sure this new camera will be equally good (probably better but also more expensive).

    Man, life is a ride. I have no idea what I'm really doing either (in my 30s now)... I realised no one does and if they think they do they are probably lying or over complacent and something will happen to throw them off guard. Just live your life, be happy doing whatever it is you are doing. I'm not a millionaire (or even close to earning a good wage) but I'm happier than pretty much all my friends because I mostly just do the things I love. Just be you, let them be them.

    tweak reacted to kye in The 3-hour 1-minute Film Challenge   
    This is the official start (and maybe quick death!) of the......
    3 Hour 1 Minute Film Challenge!!!1
    The rules:
    You setup, shoot, edit, and upload a film in a single 3-hour period - no gaps, once you start the timer you can't stop it again The final film must be 1 minute or less If your finished film looks too good then others can challenge you about the 3-hour time limit and you must explain yourself to keep your reputation in tact There are no prizes, no timeframes, and no judging Everyone that makes a film and publishes it is a winner, people that don't try are losers, and people that try but fail should learn from their mistakes and just try again There are no more rules FAQ:
    Can I plan things in advance?
    Yes.
    What limits are there for budget, cast size, crew size, and number of otters making cameos?
    None.
    Why are you doing this?
    Why not?
    No, really..  why?
    We learn by trying new things, finishing and sharing them.  Too many people obsess over tiny things and never get anything done.  This challenge is designed to combat that.
    What advice do you have?
    You can be an extra special winner if you: 
    Publish in 720p - equipment shouldn't matter and if your film looks dull in 720 then 4K will not save you Try new things and experiment - think of this as going to the gym for film-makers where you can push yourself to learn and if it fails then who cares (it was only 3 hours right?) Encourage others by being helpful and supportive Have cameos from otters Film a timelapse as a BTS so others can see how you did it - an action camera is a good choice for this*
    (* if you wear it on your person, please remember to turn it off when you visit the bathroom) Invite friends over to help Focus on having fun and enjoying the process (having so much fun you didn't finish the film in time is also a kind of winning) Call your mother (after you've hit upload) It sounds like fun but I don't know where to start?
    Set a timer for 1-hour, plan the video, when the timer runs out, reset it and shoot, when the timer runs out, reset it for 45 minutes and edit, when the timer runs out hit export, then upload.
    Then have lunch, put in a fresh battery and SD card, then start the timer again....
    I look forward to seeing the first films posted below in about 3 hours time.

    You're right it's not, but there's also not that many unique signature styles in cinema, neither in skate. You do something and people just compare it to something else someone already did. Having a totally unique style of work in this age is almost impossible in any field.
    It's also just far easier to do something that has a certain look or style in cinema because it's totally scripted and pre-conceived, a work that's usually planned over many years down to the finest details.

    Yes, French Fred is highly regarded in skateboarding and is credited with inventing the "skate-by zoom-in shot", which he did on the VX1 coincidentally. I think there was a tour video where he was actually repairing a VX1 on his own.
    His work obviously left a mark outside of skateboarding, since Leica choose him to do a video for the release of Leica SL:
    The other such a luck guy was a former PRO skateboarder turned photographer, Arto Saari (shoots with Leica S3):

    I'm not a skater and haven't really seen many skate films, but pretty interesting to see some of the history and the impact the VX1000 had.  One talented skate filmer/photographer I have come across who takes some great stills that appeal to non-skaters as well is Fred Mortagne 'French Fred' www.frenchfred.com

    Courses for horses, I guess. I can't understand this obsession with 60p. It's a useful extra, but just that, extra. Color and bit depth over 60-whatever-p any time. And now we can finally have 10bit log in those tiny cameras. A bare minimum for real log. I find this the most exciting thing back from the Red One days.

    I still have my VX, though it’s an ornament now as like many others before, the tape deck died a sudden death.

    Does anyone remember SkatePerception? That place taught me so much back in the day.

    Ahh the old my smartphone can take the same pictures as any camera argument. That's why all pro shooter's have switched to smartphones 🙄
    Regarding DR it's probably like the 6Dmkii which has excellent DR. My take, a shooter that can't get great looking images with either camera needs to get to work. Because it's not the camera that sucks..
