    7D2 60p is better than the GH4 in my opinion. Artifact free and clean.

    JazzBox got a reaction from Souto in EOSHD C-LOG for all Canon DSLRs inc. 5D Mk IV   
    I just bought it and what I can say... I tried for some minutes it on my father's Canon 6D and it is just AWESOME!

    I went far to ISO 3200 without problems! I tried only C-Log, Cinema 4 and Scarlet, in the next days I will try all the other profiles.
    For the moment: 
    - C-Log is awesome, great DR no problem with shadows as I have with V-Log L recorded internally on the GH4.
    It's really a GIFT for any Canon user! You have to buy if you need a log profile! 
    I'm going to try close to BlackMagic Micro Camera as soon as possible just to see differences and similarities.

    - Cinema 4 is a "neutral" with better colors and a slightly better DR. Great! I really like it for a 90% ready look.

    - Scarlet is a Fuji Velvia-like profile, with raised blacks, hyper saturated look (red blinks to my eyes) and less DR in order to have a great contrast.

    I think that just C-Log could cost at least more then V-Log L (it works wonders at 8 bit, instead with GH4 you have to record externally 10 bit to appreciate it), you have a lot of other great profiles, so don't wait that Andrew changes mind and buy it now!  

    Thank you Andrew! And Canon has to thank you, because I'm really thinking to buy again a Canon just to use your profiles!

    Intersting about the 5Ds. How's moire and aliasing on that body?
     
    7D2 is pretty good up to 3200 ISO. No moire or aliasing - very similar to the 5D3 in look. I had a couple of GH4's and sold them, couldn't stand the colors.

    I just shot videos and I normally use Panasonic cameras (GH4 and G7).
    I also own a BlackMagic Micro Cinema, probably the best one I have, but it is slower for 99% of my works.

    So a Canon with EOSHD C-Log could be the one that gives me the flat look of BlackMagic with the easiness of a DSLR (no monitor to rig, no cables etc...).

    Of course I'm happy with GH4 and G7 and I'll buy the GH5 as soon as possible, but a Canon with EOSHD C-Log could be a good substitute for the Micro Cinema Camera...
     
    What about high ISO?  (1600-3200)
    I would use it with Contax Zeiss lenses, so I don't need AF functions.
    Thank you!

    I have a couple of 7D2 bodies and they're great with Andrew's Clog. Plus the 7D2 has clean HDMI out where as the 80D does not. I also use my cameras with Atomos Ninja 2 recorders to get ProRes files - very helpful for smooth editing and easier on the grading process. Just my thoughts.

    If you're buying it mainly for video, I'd think a rebel or eos-m could be all you'd need. Maybe by the 80d you start to see actual improvements in video for detail and artefacts, maybe dynamic range. But that might be all imagined, and all you gain is digital sharpening. Haven't seen enough comparisons to know. The 5diii is probably best for moire, low light, and if you want full frame (though even then, you can speedboost an eos-m). A d5500 or d750 might be smarter all around though. Eoshd's clog has helped sustain my first camera purchase, on the cheap cheap side, but I don't know about investing into canon for it, unless you're also getting dual pixel auto focus or sexy 1dxii image quality at 4k60p

    No contest, get the G7 over the GH3.

    JazzBox reacted to Michael Coffee in Rode microphones   
    Hi everyone, please share any experiences you have had with Rode's customer support. 
    They have just resolved an issue for me that that exceeded the highest expectations of customer service for me.
    Now I live in Australia, and have heard some incredible stories about Rode's customer support from their original beginnings in studio condensor mic's. After buying my first ever Rode product, a videomic pro, Rode sorted out a shockmount issue in a 5 minute phone call and 1 email. Consider me an instant convert for life
    The mic itself, while not perhaps being the very ultimate in shotguns straight out of mic, gives an extremely workable sound for me, so very happy there too. 
    After hearing some almost unbelievable stories in the past, about Rode's customer support from their studio mics, who else has had experiences with Rode customer support? This is so crucial to me with a gear company, and Rode now have a total advocate for life in me with their support! Thank you Rode, I am a proud Aussie today
    I can't say enough good things about them, and will be amazed if anyone has not had the best customer support from Rode. Wow.
    Thanks again Rode, cannot recommend enough.

    JazzBox reacted to eekamouse in Smallrig Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera Cage pre-order   
    It looks like it since the price went up.    I think someone over at bmcuser mentioned it isn't compatible with Wooden Camera's speedbooster foot, although Smallrig has their own support for Speedboosters.    Not an issue for me yet since I'm using native lenses.    
    I e-mailed WoodenCamera after seeing they revised their Micro cage and was offered a brief explanation for the change and a 15% for the new cage but declined.    I intimated having seen their gear in person and was impressed with the build quality, to which their prices certainly reflect that; I get they're competing in a niche market and aren't selling them on the shelves at Walmart, however, based on the poor fit with their initial cage, I explained I don't think I'll be purchasing anymore WC gear in the foreseeable future.    The quiet revision coupled with no means for the initial buyers of the first cage to purchase maybe an upgraded sideplate(Based on the pictures it looks like they removed one row of mounting holes to free up more space on the control side), left a poor impression in my mind.     
    Thanks again to Zak and others who submitted ideas during the design phase.

    JazzBox got a reaction from sanveer in An adventure into the Panasonic GX85/80 begins - and a look at the Leica Nocticron for Micro Four Thirds   
    Yes, but it's a hack: Canon is still selling 2009's video codec in their DSLR, just to be sure you buy the C line for filmmaking. 

    My father has both 5D MKII and 5D MKIII for photos. I hacked them to try ML, but I would not use them for other then personal/repeatable gigs, since they are not reliable with ML loaded. Also: the menus and all the GUI of ML s not that great.
    Nothing to say about the quality, but until Canon will not decide to produce their cameras with that features it will be not really usable for paid gigs where time is a factor.
    I prefer to use my Lumix (GH4 and G7, GH4 never in V-Log, I made some tests also in ProRes 10 bit with video assist and I prefer to use them with Andy's "Natural" profile) and the little awesome BM Micro Cinema when I have more time between the shots. 

    The Micro or the Pocket are way more reliable if you need RAW or Log.
    Of course, my opinion

    1. What are you saying? All they need to do is write a better algorithm and release new firmware but they're withholding from doing so because you've 'only' paid 99 USD for V-Log Lite, and not for the full Varicam know-how?
    Everything is more efficient if you do it in advance. Like, building a car with a bigger engine in the first place, rather than tuning it with little bits and pieces afterwards to squeeze out more. Allocating the right things in advance, makes sure the infrastructure is laid out for optimized results after. The GH4 is relatively old, it struggles with V-Log, I'm having to go 10-bit 1080p externally (BMD Video Assist). A GH5 could have internal 10-bit and upped bitrate with perhaps even a newly chosen data storage format to cope with it. That makes all the difference and is not a software thing at all.
    2. Don't take that too literally, please. I'm talking about the videocentric features, that's the closest thing in the line-up, for shooting cinema-style stuff. Things like V-Log L, CineLike profiles, uncompressed HMDI output, anamorphic mode, Timecode, dedicated brick interface (YAGH), etc. That only applies to the GH-range. People wanted to use the LX100 for aerial stuff, but there's no live-output over HDMI. Some might be missing mic-input and a headphone jack. Things like this and not including certain other features force you to go for the GH-range (Japanese heads of the brand's strategy, as I mentioned I think is happening here earlier). Which is the cinematic equivalent range I was hinting at (EOS has EOS Cinema, Lumix G has the GH).

    all the footage I shot for the movie is owned by the film production company , they have released some low res saved for web images to me so I can share them on EOSHD . Film companies dont relase any hi res stuff until after the film is released  ,
    So look at the lighting grade composition low light levels etc etc but remember these are lo res saved for web pictures you are seeing not UHD 4K uncompressed frame grabs. there is no micoblocking on the actual footage I shot .
     I shot most of the movie at 800 iso f2.5 I lit the sets for that stop and ISO , I did shoot some scenes at 640 and 400 maybe 20% of the movie but most was at 800 iso
    the G7 is very clean and usable at 800iso       PS the entire film is shot at night there are no daylight scenes in the movie
