  1. Of course and if this is your bread and butter work there are cameras cheaper and better suited, I'm sure I can reel off loads of other scenarios where 4k or even hd is more important. But that's missing the point... That's not who this camera is aimed at is all I'm saying. If you want to shoot 12k or even 8k raw without it overheating there aren't many alternatives, and for overall image quality from what I see, this camera is hard to beat for the price
  2. You could film in 12k or even 8k and downscale to 4k - that would get you pristine 4k. Using 4k means zooming in on the sensor and with the smaller pixels is always going to be a bit noisier. I guess my point was it was a test not using the Ursa 12k at anywhere near its best settings
  3. Yes you don't buy the Ursa 12k to then shoot in 4k at high compression rates
  4. But it has no IS and Sony IBIS is not great. Anecdotal but I've read that the AF on the C70 is no better than that of the C200 which from my short test wasn't that great. Canon doesn't seem to be able to put the top AF from their stills cameras into their cinema cameras
  5. https://petapixel.com/2020/10/15/next-fuji-x-t3-firmware-update-will-more-than-double-autofocus-speed/ A little bit of love still for the XT3, AF improvements
  6. Sorry forgot to put the price - £250
  7. Lens in excellent condition, comes with hood and both end caps Bank transfer preferred, UK postage included
  8. Lens is in good condition, includes both lens caps and hood Bank transfer preferred, UK postage included
  9. What are peoples options for a decent run around zoom with IS? The 17-55mm 2.8 had a big vignette on the c200 and I think will do the same here - it could really do with a version 2. The 18-80mm T4.4 Canon lens is wonderful and has servo but is also expensive. That leaves the good old 24-105mm f4 plus speedbooster (still quite a chunk of money) but then your AF is compromised (only covers 60% I think I read with speedbooster). The 18-135 stm lens is good for outside run n gun but slow and not a very exciting image The RF lenses are all full frame so not wide enough Any decently
  10. except an evf... That z-cam looks good but is still a big lump - suddenly you've got hdmi lead, power to think of (and another lead). This little camera is going to become very unwieldly quickly.
  11. What do you do in bright sunlight? My ageing eyes struggle to hold the camera far enough away to be able to focus on a small screen these days but even in my youth I have always much preferred looking through a viewfinder. The way you suggest using the camera is way too low an angle for my liking most of the time And i disagree about it being steadier but anyway don't want to digress too much. Still an exciting camera but I won't be getting one mainly for that reason. The same reason I didn't get an EVA1
  12. This will be horrible for handheld without an evf, waving the camera in front of you like the good old days of dslr. No thanks. So annoying this seems to be the way camera companies are going with their small cameras. Would rather use a mirrorless hybrid and put up with screw on nd filters and audio than that
  13. Canon cinema cams are definitely going for it this year, they're after Sony's share of the market. The c300 mk3 sensor is fantastic, but I don't see any evf (crucial for me) and is the screen on the back flippable or fixed, haven't seen any images of the back? Nevertheless sounds like a great little camera, the FX6 is going to have to match it for specs - if it has the FX9 colour, an evf, and possibly IBIS, and with the variable nd and full frame it would bring something different and be able to compete
  14. Yes I prefer the Panasonic cameras and colours to the Sony and Canon too but thought this was an interesting comparison of the 2 current flavours of the month
  15. Really interesting comparison with the R5. 8k RAW on the R5 is very impressive, in the bread and butter 4k modes the A7s3 seems to have the edge particularly with DR and lowlight (although there is a lot of smeary NR going on with the Sony) The R5 needs those other Clog modes and of course to sort out the overheating
