  1. Beautifully shot, you have a lot of talent. Keep up the great work. :)
  2. Congratulations on completing. Looks interesting. :)
  3. Just out (Nov 20, 2014). Fixes various issues including some compatibility issues with the Sony A7S. For the update and details see (Windows version): http://www.metabones.com/article/of/MARK_IV_Firmware_Win For the mac version, see: http://www.metabones.com/article/of/MARK_IV_Firmware_Mac
  4. For those criticising, try to shoot a movie on a shoestring budget. Film making the indie way is a huge amount of work and stress typically done by a very small crew of highly dedicated folks. Most good 10-second commercial videos these days have much higher budgets and crew than the average micro budget indie feature. Great job OP.
  5. So my A7S and Metabones Canon EF Lens to Sony NEX Smart Adapter (Mark IV)†works great with: Canon 50mm f/1.8 II EF Sigma 24-105mm F/4 DG OS HSM Lens for Canon DSLR But not with: Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 IF EX DG HSM f/CANON ... works for 5-25 minutes then stops working, frequently crashes, works again for 2-10 mins then crashes again Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM Autofocus Lens for Canon SLR ... works for 5-25 minutes then stops working, frequently crashes, works again for 2-10 mins then crashes again I wrote to Metabones support about this issue but got this response: What is this advance mode? When I swap out a lens on the A7S, I simply switch off the camera. Install the new lens. Then switch on the camera. I always keep the Metabones on the camera, never take it off. I also never use the button on the side of the Metabones adapter. Maybe I pressed it once a few weeks ago. I use my A7S exclusively for film making, Manual focus only - never auto-focus. Any advice would be hugely appreciated.
  6. Thanks hmcindie, super link. Much appreciated. :)
  7. So I am loving my A7S for film making apart from one crucial aspect, skin tone. My Canon 6D videos have great skin tone. I have not been able to match those on my A7S yet. My A7S skin tones are frequently verging on looking like sun burn, where my 6D captures true realistic skin tones under exactly the same light, scene and ISO/shutter/aperture settings. Could some of you pros give me some picture profile setting advice. I have tried the standard picture profiles, and various custom profile settings - wow, the options are extensive. I did a lot of googling and found a dozen or so custom settings - many were SLog2 though and I don't want to use SLog2 due to the color grading workflows involved. If any of you good folks could provide the custom profiles you use to get good video and skin tones on the A7S I would HUGELY appreciate it.
  8. Thanks for the settings smon222, will try that out.
  9. Thanks for the guidance Gonzalo. :)
  10. Great video. Would love to know the custom settings you used...
  11. Excellent post, thanks for sharing. For those on a budget: Manfrotto 492LCD Micro Ball Head I have used 6+ different field-monitor-holding-ball-heads, feared for my monitor with all except the Manfrotto - rock solid.

    Lots of nice visuals there, nicely done. :)
  13. Looks very interesting. Congrads on completing the features. :) Shorts are tough to complete, features x 100 that.
  14. SLog2 is the only profile with the ISO restriction. At times I even really like the No Profile setting. At other times, I prefer other settings. How to pick the best one? It's a tad subjective but... Do a lot of googling, seach on: A7S picture profiles Some useful links: A7S picture profiles (with settings) http://vimeo.com/101527086 Article on A7S picture profiles (with settings) http://philipbloom.net/2012/03/07/picture-profiles-on-the-sony-nex-fs100/ Sleep, eat, taste wine and relax! – A Sony A7s camera video review with profile settings http://***URL not allowed***/sleep-eat-taste-wine-and-relax-a-sony-a7s-camera-video-review/ Test all the standard settings, and the above. Learn how to fully adjust the settings. After testing, pick the ones you like.
  15. Excellent cinematography. Trailer definitely caught by interest and attention.
