  1. I guess in ten years some 18 year old will shoot something great with 8K on the old used Canon R5 that he bought for cheap. 🙂
  2. I think it would be great to ask them to implement a 2,8K Mode on the GH5 or GH5S via firmware at the max. 4K Bandwith that might add to the quality of the picture i guess. Given that this is one of the learnings that came up in the last time i believe that would be something that they could do to make their customers happy...
  3. I think photography and shooting video are just different fields. I even feel it when i am on holiday and i try to go back and forth between shooting video and taking pictures - it seems to need different parts of the brain. What i really like about shooting video (big or small) is that you start with some kind of concept and you go and shoot the video. After the shoot you sit in editing with the new material and wondering wether everything will work out. If it works out it's nice. I experience the same problems that Andrew is mentioning quite often as well. A Zoom to early, ibis kicking in, a Lut working totally different in a slightly different light condition. It's something that is strange about new cameras: It's very seldom that you are really positively surprised from what you get be accident - as in analog photography or sometimes even in Mini-DV where you accidently had created that "looks like film". Nevertheless i feel that with every video you add something to your knowledge arsenal that you can build upon. In a perfect world you would always see in which direction you want to grow - be it lighting, concept, directing, working with a bigger team, etc. As to the whole "young people don't know" what they are doing thing - i believe it's easier to get to the mid level these days (as it's vast), but going to the top level still is as hard as 10, 20, 30, 40 years ago. Ridley Scott compared his first commercial work to instagram jobs in a recent interview - shooting 2-3 commercials per week (as Director and DOP), and i believe he was in his mid 20s as well at the time.
  4. Hello, check out this music video i shot on the A7iii and the 24-70 F 4.0. Picture Profile was Slog. All the real time shots were recorded to a atomos. Even using a controlled lighting situation i find it pretty hard to get nice skintones out of the camera. Luckily a friend of mine is a good grading artist. Nevertheless it was much fun trying to create this sci fi mood with some basic elements such as black trash bags and a pieces of plastic. I had a set of zeiss contax lenses but one of the contax to ef adapters left a nice scratch in my sigma adapter on the first set up. For a project like this were the time is very limited it is also very helpful to have a zoom lens to get the framing right as fast as possible. But next time i will try them further! Well, of course the band would be very happy if you would comment or like the video and i would be very happy if you could follow my youtube channel.
  5. Thank you! Somehow the Atomos picture had a little more contrast. Easy to fix in grading but in the first moment i put it in Premiere i thought: wow, the atomos stuff looks much crispier... Sony Skin tones are a thing - i am still looking for a way to give them a natural feeling.
  6. Heyho, check out this little video i shot for german based band Trebor. Shot on A7iii and Atomos. Surprisingly the material from the a7iii looks a bit different than the one from the atomos. Light was changing heavily throughout the shoot ( big windows) so it was kind of hard to keep the light consistent. I could set up a light for the close ups. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z222A3aCRqQ P.S.: Of course the band would be very happy if you could leave a like or a comment...
  7. Hi everyone, check out this little musicvideo i shot on the Sony A7iii with standard optics. I used a tiffen black promist 1/8. Also used it in the sunlight shots which did not make too much sense. Some of the shots were recorded to an atomos recorder. Graded in Premiere. Sadly i did not own a Gimbal at that time... https://www.youtube.com/embed/YQyMdkgUIjI
  8. Check out this little musicvideo i shot with the A7iii . The combination of Youtube compression and Lumetri looks force the pink skintones in some shots to TO THE MAX!
  9. As usual this makes me wonder what makes Vimeo go this route. I believe this must be massively reducing their number of clients. I guess it's quite hard (and expensive) for a smaller player to fight these legal battles regarding copy rights. But the lack of communication is an absolut downer. I am still really fond of the whole Vimeo universe. I still love that you can ask all these incredible artists direct questions regarding gear, lighting and techniques and the rate of replies is very high.
  10. Hyy everyone, i own a Sony A7iii for approximately 4 month. I recently shot a live concert and used different modes: 4K, HD 100 fps etc. After approximately 1 hour on and off shooting the camera told me that it will shut down due to heat. Since then the camera is acting strange. For example it is froze up in playback mode and would not even switch off when i flip the switch? I have not installed the latest firmware yet and i am wondering wether i should do that or return it to the reseller right away? I have searched this forum but it seems that no one else has encountered this problem? Edit: P.S. if this belongs into the Sony A7iii thread it would be great if one could let me know.
  11. Hey everyone, just finished another little Video for German Band "Neonschwarz". We had a one day shoot on RED. Check it out!

    New musicvideo

    Hey, check out this little video i shot using a Sony a73 and a Zhiyune Crane. First Production with a sony cam as well as a first for a zhiyune shot. A lot to improve on both. Nevertheless some shots came out like i wanted them to and this is one of the few videos in which i got good weather as it is usually raining in Hamburg. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujNOMOXD3ZY
  13. Shot on ProRes but both information will be very valuable for the future. Thanks!
  14. I've shot the following musicvideo and experenienced severe fixed pattern noise in some of the slomo shots. Does anyone know hao to work around that?
  15. Will it feature an EF Mount? Can't believe this ist finally happening. Sold my 550d approx. 4-5 years ago thinking something cool would come up... I would already be happy If it would feature c300 Style HD Video though...
  16. Hey, check Out my latest musicvideo for the Indie Band Fuck Art, Let's Dance! Shot on Blackmagic Ursa and GH5.
  17. I am really excited about the camera. The GH5 ist such a great camera. But i saw few examples of the GH5 that looked really cinematic. If the GH5 ist about to change that: nice! I guess the GH5 will stay the Go to camera for documentaries, Life Concerts, travel Videos, and everybody who is starting out (cheaper). But i am wondering wether there GH5s will be used in Independent Films and such, in a way ( and amount) the A7s and A7s2 have been. I guess we will find out in the next 1,5 years. Or someone very talented will juet show us what is possible with the GH5...
  18. Hey, I am still wondering wether to buy a GH5 or not. Fact is that i have seen very few really cinematic material from the camera. I have shot three music promos with it this year. For examples the following (Last shots are BM Pocket). Overall i love the handling of the GH5. It's such a pleasure to use! Or this one: Now i have shot another vid using a a7r2 ( it's not released yet) and though the pictures were much noisier somehow the results are looking more cinematic. I have tried some comparisons of both cameras and am still looking Into it. As some stills are looking very nice from GH5 material and the Slomo stuff is looking pretty cinematic as well, i am wondering wether there is something in the shutter in 24fps /25fps mode that gives the GH5 a bit of a video Look. I haven't found any information or comparisons on the web. Maybe one of you has seen something?
  19. Hey Guys, check out this musicpromo i shot with the GH5. I tried to do some cinematic scenes. Check it out. Grading in Lumetri Looks with LUTs. I wanted to try more of a "flat" look. Woud love to hear your feedback.
  20. Check out this little Video i shot on the GH5, Metabones Adapter and the old Sigma 30mm 1.4. (that kendy one :-) ) and the Panasonic 20mm pancake. Most of the Grafitti stuff was Shot at HD at 120 FPS. I should have used the 4k 60 FPS instead to keep the Quality with the digital zooms and reframes... Editing in Premiere. Just a fast Grading with Lumetri Looks.
  21. As this is a miniature shot i believe it's a motion control rig and they are shooting stills. In that case the videofunction would only be used for setup of the shot. Edit: Sorry, somehow i missed page two of the conversation where this matter was already discussed.
  22. Another little Musicvideo i shot on the GH5 with speedbooster and sigma 18-35. Due to the short turnaround ( 3 days) the footage is not graded. Noise is heavy in the slomo shots - luckily youtube smoothens it automatically. :-)
  23. Here comes another musicvideo. This time we tried to really tried some stuff that we always wanted to do but never dared to. We started with several ideas that took us back to being 12 again when you started to shoot stuff on vhs. In the end it ended up with quite a lot of work - though it looks so trashy. Shot on GH4.
