  1. Hi everyone!

    Another music Video coming along. Shot on the blackmagic 4K with Metabones and Sigma 16-35mm and Helios 55mm. On the outside shots i had ND filters with IR correction. Also there is a small DJI camera in the mix for all the shots from above ( Just put it in a stick) . On this shoot i really missed an autofocus feature.

    Also i had some problems with the grading in the first half of the song as the lighting conditions were very different in each set up. Maybe i would have needed to have a closer look on the white balance. Maybe also a grading session in Resolve would have helped, i did the grading in premiere.


  2. What i am really looking forward to are the information that will come out of the postproduction companies, as these will apply to most "prosumer" cameras.

    Also "The Creator" is going in the direction of the "Sony" look and taking advantage of it - and many shots are just the basis for extensive VFX work.

    I assume these cameras would not be used for a feelgood rom com where you want to get soft skintones from 45 year old actors...


  3. What i finde more interesting is the option to record spatial video though.  I believe once the headset will be released content will be scarce in the beginning. There might be a short gap for no-low budget filmmakers to get their films seen (and sold).

    Great stuff!

    First thing I noticed is that it didn't look like video to me.  I seem to have become very sensitive to whatever makes things look video-ish, and it is rare that YT footage shot with mirrorless cameras doesn't look video to me, but you did well!  I genuinely have no idea what elements of the process make things look video-ish to me, and I'm still investigating this myself, although I suspect it's got to do with sharpening.  You didn't over sharpen the video (despite me watching it on 4K) so that could have been a major factor, so well done on that!

    Second thing I noticed was the colour grade.  Obviously if the client is happy then that's a job well done as that overrules all other considerations.  That said, I thought the grade looked a bit inconsistent in terms of skin tones - some shots were more on the yellow end of the skin tone palette and others looked more towards the middle, but they weren't so different that I thought they were deliberately different.  Maybe they were and beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, so these are probably just my preferences, but I noticed it, and you invited feedback.  I also noticed that it was relatively low saturation  overall, which might have been the clients preference, but in music videos there's a tolerance (and sometimes a desire) to have much stronger looks, so that might have been fun to see as well.

    Third thing I noticed was a few times in the b-roll sections (the group out walking in the street etc) where the OIS jumped.  You mostly hid it with jump-cuts (which was a good strategy and suited the video) and I think you could have gone heavier on those, having more frequent cuts.  I typically edit my videos to music, so am aware of the strategies of cutting to the music, and I thought the percussion of the track would have been suitable to put in some additional cuts in places.

    Rooftop shots, including Marie standing on the wall, all of them looking great regarding framing, movement, visual appeal and being in tune with the music beautifully. It's making the rest of the video look a bit pale in comparison imo, with a less motivated shot design, despite it being filmed in docu style. All in all, the fans will enjoy it and so did I.

    Thanks both of you. I am with you 100% percent regarding the grading - actually that would be the area in which i could have improved the video a bit. Still find it tricky to grade in Premiere, def. need to try resolve. Also thanks for the feedback on the storytelling side - def. can be improved as well.

  5. Would love to see them move more in the lomo direction - would be great to see a Gopro Super8 Milimeter Camera and a 16mm digital bolex type thing.

    Good find - I hadn't scrolled down that page far enough to see the main 'Movie Specification' table (see below). It's interesting that it offers DCI2K (2048 x 1080) as well as DCI4K. Also the 4k 50/60p crop is apparently lower with DIS ON than with DIS OFF (1.1x vs. 1.18x).




    That's really interesting - i read that the HD on the XH2S was pretty bad though. Fingers crossed - looking forward to some tests!

    very cool! love the blacklight!  Any other videos you have ?

    Thanks for the feedback! You mean other videos with blacklight?

  8. Puh, this is another strange camera. Love the size and that it's a proper video camera for semi pros. Of course if you want to shoot a proper job you would prefer another camera but it has the right sizw to just put it in a pocket... Need to take a closer look at the photo features...

    I cannot bare poor Roll.Shutter on X-H2, R7.

    I'd go for Canon R8, or Panas S5-II. R6-II also super attractive, CVP likes its ergonomics.

    IX-H2s seems to have very little rolling shutter in Flog1 (Something between  5 and 6 ms) while it has 11-12 ms in Flog2. As i am also looking for a camera with little shutter, this seems quite interesting...

    Prefer the X-H2 as the X-H2S is quite a bit more and the 4K/120p comes with a heavy crop. Also AF seems better on the X-H2, although I believe the latest firmware update improved matters on the X-H2S.

    Here in Germany the price difference between X-H2 as the X-H2S is approx 200,-. Strange that the difference seems to be higher in other countries.

  11. It's incredible that blackmagic has created these workhorse cameras - i see them everywhere. And i would not have thought so when the cams were released.

    Let's see if there are any real innovation. From my side i would love to have a global shutter and a better formfactor.
