    Alexa Mini vs C300 Mark II with internal reduction

    i did alexa mini, c300 raw to pro res hq 4k and c300 internal with noise reduction set to minus 1 (new firmware setting) yea but you can get an alexa classic for 20k - even though it's a useless heavy brick that is power hungry and can't do more than 1080p
  3. this is amazing Andrew, you were right there from the beginning, championing h.265 with the samsung nx1 - now Sony is going down this path in a big way. This is huge. Can you imagine where video encoding goes next and what's possible with a tiny little camera?

    Alexa Mini vs C300 Mark II with internal reduction

    the UMP, while much improved with BRAW, still has magenta color shifts in the highlights that make the dynamic range not as strong. Also UMP doesn't seem to have a OLPF in it - I haven't tried this out: http://rawlite.com/olpf-for-blackmagic-ursa-mini-pro-4-6k/ but I think that would make the camera more similar to the alexa. Still at this point (and I am redoing the test) - the c300 mark ii RAW to pro res is the best way to get the sharpness an alexa has. even with the new Noise reduction set to minus 1, the image is still too soft for me to be able to be cut without anyone noticing. I love the UMP, but I sold it for the c300 just cause it was too sharp. showed every pore, even with diffusion

    Fujifilm X-T3 focal reducer/ speedboost experience

    review on this from facebook XT-3 group : "Just shot a short with Kipon Speedbooster and Leica R set. My thoughts. Well built and excellent optics. Con. You’ll need a 15mm lens support to minimize jiggle. The XF to EF still has some micro play. You’ll need to play nice on changing focus direction or long lenses will show jiggle. Someone really needs to make the PL style EF mount to XF to be a narrative : commercial beast. That said, the full frame image is insane on the XT3. Slight vignetting on Leica 50. Useable and can be windowed. The rest of the set was fine. Great on Canon 24-105 and 70-200. AF works decently but hunts a bit compared to native.

    cool but I want to see a speedbooster so I can do full frame on it with those great skintones, dynamic range and more!
  7. Mattius left an amazing video on this: seeing if anyone has tested with the xt-3

    well said - yea Youtube basically rose to fame on copyright infringement. I remember the pre-google days. Internet getting reigned in.
  11. I tested the c300 mark ii with noise reduction and odyssey 7q raw recording vs the alexa. The results may shock you! Testing the Alexa Alexa Mini vs Canon C300 Mark II in terms of sharpness via the Odyssey RAW to Pro Res, with desharpen in post as well as in camera codec with noise reduction set to minus 1. This is a new feature in a firmware update. You have to go into other settings and turn on and to minus 1 - you can't just leave off. Graded with my chart2 lut - link to that and stills here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/u3qmjg7iysvxlsf/AABk1BLbSY1Yy9JoDSYjo1Qva?dl=0 also stills are there to see better please email me any questions or if you want the source files - I can get them to you on a sd card if you want.

    Wistia seems like a much better alternative: https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/why-we-moved-from-vimeo-pro-to-wistia-and-why-you-should-too/ I agree - but... vimeo is just using amazon for their storage. but yea, the cost of it all is probably insane this is funny https://melmagazine.com/en-us/story/the-best-pornhub-videos-that-dont-have-any-porn-in-them
