  1. Does anyone else think the color science in this camera is still complete crap? I haven't seen anything to make me think otherwise.
  2. I would guess this has to do with the influx of amateur filmmakers who don't know how to use lights(thank the canon DSLR revolution) and have been chirping in the ears of these camera manufacturers for better low light capabilities. Lights can be scary, but they are a big factor in amateur vs pro shoots(amateurs seem to use window/available light exclusively and pros will prefer to light it the way they want). Plus to my eye the low light high ISO stuff looks weird and very unnatural.
  3. Exactly. I said the same thing and some idiots were ripping me and saying "plenty of docs" are still shot on a 7D. It's easy to tell which posters shoot for a living and which ones just test cameras for fun.
  4. I guess I should mention that I don't like the Sony image at all. I had a sony PD-150 and I've hated the Sony image since. The Z1-U sucked and I have owned a Panny HVX-2000 since day one, so I'm probably not the most unbiased person on here.
  5. Yes you can switch lenses if you have an assistant(PA budget is the best spent money on set) and yes there are times when you can take advantage of the RS, but mostly it's a very annoying workaround. Funny how most of the responses on here have been how to technically avoid RS, but none have offered an answer to shooting with it. I get it. Some folks really need DR(although most are just shooting crap for vimeo). DR isn't king though. To me the images out of 99% of the footage that I've seen from the a7s are pretty flat, lack color depth and don't really excite me. The one small clip
  6. I've seen enough. Unless you're shooting House of Cards the rolling shutter looks to render this camera pretty much unusable in a majority of real world shooting situations. The high base ISO on S-Log is going to cause all kinds of problems shooting ANYTHING with fast lenses too. A maxed out variable ND filter or heavy 1.8+ will be minimum for F1.2-4 in any kind of decent light. I shot in a factory last week on my GH4 and I never went above ISO 400(shooting at F1.8-8). Would have been a major pain to have swap out an ND every single time I had to change lenses and having a big ole matte box
  7. I also forgot to add that I'm not that worried about the full frame aesthetic either. It's very nice to be able to put some nice L lens on this, but I think with the upcoming EF to m 4/3 metabones will close the gap.
  8. Seems like this is case as per Matthew Allard's review on Newshooter. This is a real deal breaker for me and one of the MANY reasons why I'm going to keep my GH4. I shoot mostly doc stuff with lots of long interviews and live events. Also the dynamic range doesn't look that impressive at all. The 8 bit footage out of cam looks very DSLRish and not much better than a 5D(granted this will probably change a bit with 4k and 4:2:2). I wasn't that impressed with the Den Lennie footage either and this review just confirms it. The 10-bit image out of the GH4 looks like it's going to kick the
  9. Just curious if any has used a BlackMagic HyperDeck to get 4:2:2 out the camera? Might be a cheaper option as compared to the Blade, but not sure about the lack of ProRes. The 10bit looks likes it's going to give the GH4 a massive advantage over the AS7 and will be the saving grace of this camera.
