    mat33 got a reaction from Thomas Hill in Poor Olympus E M1 Mark III video specs   
    Shot on EM1x, looks very very nice.  They used 17mm 1.2 and 25mm 1.2 with segments on the 12-100f4 and 300mm f4 according to the comments.  Love the handheld tracking shot using a wheelbarrow at the end.

    mat33 got a reaction from Llaasseerr in Sigma Fp first shots - how does internal 8bit RAW compare to external 12bit RAW?   
    The Ikonoskop was way too expensive and the D16 had a polarising external appearance and the release firmware was bit flakey (especially compared to the later firmware with Bolex Log), but what a thick beautiful digital negative to work with.   It sometimes feels like we want to make Star Wars Episode V but because of all the latest technological wiz bang gadgets we end up making Star Wars Episode I where we end up spending too much time setting up and playing with everything than focusing on the creativity or art part.

    The XC10/15 were ok - but didn't like the lack of a dedicated viewfinder as mucking around with the loupe meant I basically never used it. Having better AF would be nice, and doing a smooth zoom in/out using the rockers would be nice - nothing says cinematic mojo like a good old zoom in/out ?

    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

    So I saw that Wooden Camera have released a microphone modelled after the Sony VX1000 ccd mini-DV camcorder from the 1990s, which brings back good memories of my first video camera the Panasonic GS400. Turns out its still pretty popular for skating videos despite being 20+ years old:

    Well I will say this thread is pretty awesome: a budget full frame camera, undertakers, professional sport photography, cinematic mojo, academy award winners and even astronauts. The only thing that beats a good old canon back and forth is a Leica one.

    It must be my limited English skills, but why use "sterile digital look", thus giving a pejorative tint ?! I have always enjoyed your tests, but since you circled back to canon, I feel you are quite negative toward other stuff, including stuff you have tested and liked recently. If I recall, each of those cameras you have tested the last months (quite a lot !) , received a high "score" in your posts : gh5s, xt3, z6... Of course, you compare them to your C200, but every time, when the cameras were in your hands since several days, you were nothing but positively surprise by the quality. I might be wrong, but I wouldn't be surprise if in the next months, you try a panasonic S1, a future A7siii, a Xh2, and jump from one camera to another, the newest erasing the qualities you have found in the previous. I don't want to critic, or sound like and ass, but it's my feeling, reading you on a lot of posts.
    Concerning the cinematic aspect of the imagery, and the Canon special sauce attached to it, seriously, the only camera that match this so called magic, to me, is the 1DC (5d iii ML raw excluded !). But my tastes and my eyes must be crap ; I'm open to that conclusion ! The image out of a 1Dxii is seriously good, with a "je ne sais quoi" (yeah, the only words I can write without making a mistake ? ), that you may called organic, but not close to the 1DC. In fact, we can argue that Canon got a special mojo, given by the motion cadence or whatever technical stuff, but I've seen a massive amount of shitty video shot with Canon, 5div, 1dxii etc. I have also watch beautiful cinematic footages shot on a GH5, which seems, for some persons, to be the opposite of Canon in  cinematic, organic etc. terms.
    I'm a newbie in video, but not in photo, and I can say that we ear the same from old photo snobs, that describe the Canon mojo as the pinnacle of image quality, thus throwing away everything else. Too bad, nowadays, the majority of photos and videos are ruined by presets sold buy the instagram influencers and luts by youtube stars, so, whatever magic those cameras got, it will be crushed ?

    Maybe because suddenly on every single topic about hybrid mirrorless cameras somebody (from above perspective) referencing exactly "cinematic" image as exclusively default property from manufacturer that takes minor part in cinema (and cinematic-image defining) industry?

    I think offering full frame (no crop) 12 bit raw video on a US$2000 hybrid body pretty much meets the definition of going into complete and total overdrive.

    My understanding is that most log profiles end up effectively underexposing the sensor to give more dynamic range to the highlights, hence why the AF isn't as good when shooting in Log on the Z6.  Saying that Nikon are working on improving the AF so we may see some improvements here, and that flat profile is also pretty nice for most situations.
    As far as filmic image, motion cadence and all round I really want an Alexa in a tiny hybrid body that costs $2000 mojo, I think it comes down to how much processing the image receives in camera.  IMO the most beautiful image in terms both colour and motion cadence in an indie camera comes from the digital bolex.  There is no fancy downscaling, no inter frame compression, and zero noise reduction or sharpening done in camera, just a pure image processing pipeline (and the global shutter helps).  So hopefully the raw output on the Z6 will have minimal processing/sharpening etc and if so should be very very nice. I'm looking forward to the 1080p raw output just as much as the 4K.
