  1. Hey guys, I am doing a multicam shoot tomorrow and I would like to ask what would be the best picture profile and settings on GH2 to match my G80 with cine D with: contrast at 0 sharpness at -3 noise reduction at -5 and saturation at -3 or are there any settings on G80 that I should change to maximize dynamic range and "filmicness" Thanks a lot
  2. Hey guys, I would like to buy sigma 18-35 canon ef mount in Europe. Ideally for like 500 USD or maybe a bit more. I live in Czech republic, so I guess the shipping would be 20 usd or so. Thanks
  3. Hey, I want to buy Sigma 18-35 1.8 for my Pana G80 and wanted to ask what would be the cheapest UV filter to protect that lens without negatively impacting the image? And do you know of any other affordable camera other than GH5, that can output 4:3 through HDMI so I can shoot photos in 4:3 on my smallHD focus monitor. Can G9, XT3, Z6, A7III or others do it? Thanks a lot
  4. Hello, i wanted to ask if there is difference between setting gain on my camera to -12 db and then boosting the gain while editing in fcpx if the sound is not loud enough or just trying to set the gain in camera so the peaks are somewhere between -12 db and -6 db? and I also wanted to ask what would be the cheapest recorder with automix feature? Is the zoom f8n the “cheapest” way? thanks
  5. You mean that even the 18-35 1.8 is loud when auto focusing? Thanks
  6. I am using G80 for like half a year or more for everything including paid work: https://vimeo.com/martinmatej And I still love it! I am handheld kind of guy and the ibis works super well. I also use it with viltrox EF-M2 adapter speedbooster. I had a problem with stabilization on already stabilized lens when the switch on the lens disables even the ibis in G80 or when I left the stabilization switch on canon 70 - 300 4 - 5.6 on the camera freezes after few seconds of filming and then I have to detach the adapter and restart the camera. But when I use it with sigma 17 - 50 2.8 Ef mount version with no stabilization on the lens just stabilization in G80 is on it works perfect. I also had some problems with that adapter and vintage glass without electric contacts so be aware. But all in all the G80 was and still is a great camera that I bought second hand for like 500 USD. If you want 4K 60p you could go for second hand panasonic G9 which costs somewhere between G80 and GH5.
  7. Well the link to reflector holder at the beginning of the topic allows you to put a reflector above someone's head or high above. That's what I really like about it, to use it to mount microphones and reflectors just outside the frame. And I guess I will mainly use it to soften the harsh sunlight on human face or something else if needed.
  8. That could be a good idea. But I am not a big fan of drilling and gluing things. I realized that I could just buy the reflector holder one and put a crab clamp with magic arm or something like that at the end of it to hold a microphone if it's needed. But thank you anyway
  9. I would trust Curtis Judd, his other reviews and opinions seem very unbiased.
  10. I have the simmod 82mm and didnt notice any color shift. the leather pouch is nice. The turning mechanism helps to position the filter so you have the small stick in the right spot and I guess it could be used to control the polarisation effect. give it a try but be carefull if you position the filter to max settings it shows x pattern while on position 10 it is fine - does anyone knows if slr magic I or II works the same way? thanks
  11. I wanted to ask if there is device that combines Telescopic boom arm for lightstand with 1/4 screw at the end but at the same time can hold a reflector like on the second link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Photography-Studio-Light-Stand-Telescopic-Boom-Arm-w-Sandbag-Grip-For-75-135cm/222576573875?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3Dee7e2c5491a34131a3bf6f898e9be3ea%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26mehot%3Dag%26sd%3D162343946373%26itm%3D222576573875&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507 and https://www.ebay.com/itm/PRO-Studio-Photo-Holder-Bracket-Swivel-Head-Reflector-Disc-Arm-Support-26-69/162343946373?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649  thanks
  12. Hello, I am working on video right now where I would like to have a wide shot of a room and then I would like to make some animated furniture appear in the room. I work in final cut pro x so do you think this would work or do you know anything else that does the job fine for less money: https://www.motionvfx.com/mplugs-106.html I am also working on a drone shot where call out titles appear above different farm buildings when I fly above them and stay above the buidings so I think it need to be tracked. I can't decide between: https://www.motionvfx.com/mplugs-135.html or something like this: https://store.pixelfilmstudios.com/product/prodicatorfundamentals/ What do you think will serve me better? I also wanted to ask if there is device that combines Telescopic boom arm for lightstand with 1/4 screw at the end but at the same time can hold a reflector like on the second link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Photography-Studio-Light-Stand-Telescopic-Boom-Arm-w-Sandbag-Grip-For-75-135cm/222576573875?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160727114228%26meid%3Dee7e2c5491a34131a3bf6f898e9be3ea%26pid%3D100290%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26mehot%3Dag%26sd%3D162343946373%26itm%3D222576573875&_trksid=p2060778.c100290.m3507 and https://www.ebay.com/itm/PRO-Studio-Photo-Holder-Bracket-Swivel-Head-Reflector-Disc-Arm-Support-26-69/162343946373?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 Thanks for all the answers. I know it's not usual topics here but I think anything can be useful.
  13. Hey I got some older sigma EF lenses like 17-50 2.8, 24 2.8 and 14 2.8 Would the pocket 4K work with them on this cheap gimbal? https://store.feiyu-tech.com/products/feiyutech-a1000-for-dslr-mirrorless-camera-1-kilogram-payload-damping-sliding-arm-45-degree-elevation And could I control focus and f stop remotely with this aputure dec adapter? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Aputure-Wireless-Focusing-Adapter-Cameras/dp/B00X14F5CA Or with the more expensive Dec vari ND control even ND remotely? https://www.aputure.com/products/dec-vari-nd-1 Has anyone tried this combo? If I have regular vari ND can I touch it to adjust it while the camera is still on the running gimbal? I don't need to be adjusting all the time. Just before the take. Thanks
  14. I mean when I shoot video 16:9 is fine. But when I want to shoot photos the 16:9 stays and I cannot toggle on 4:3 or 3:2 in camera so I have to take photos in 16:9 and then reset the crop on the RAW originals in lightroom. So are you sure that with GH5 you can shoot 4:3 photos directly and view them in correct 4:3 ration on smallhd focus? Thanks guys
