    amsh89es335 got a reaction from RawZion in Digital cameras shipments at 1990s levels in 2020   
    I wonder what the used market is looking like. Because someone who was a new photo enthusiast and did little research can get a used DSLR and lenses for fraction of the cost on a camera 5-8 years old and the images really hold up. Not mention people selling off gear they don't use to pay their bills while unemployed.

    amsh89es335 got a reaction from andrgl in Canon EOS R5 has serious overheating issues – in both 4K and 8K   
    I knew there was something wrong with this. I thought Canon was going to leap forward but who were we kidding. Think about it. Canon always wants to protect their cinema cameras. This makes working filmmakers go ugggg I can't work with that and come up with more to buy the new cinema cameras.  And the main target is hobbyist/prosumer who want the best specs on paper or a photographer who want to grab a shots that the quality will hold up to the quality of the stills.
    It not meant for film or video production. They do not want it to be. But they want those specs to get the people to buy the R5 but are also the people who would never go all out and buy the C500 MK II because they have no real need for it. 
    It keeps a strong divide from Professional and Prosumer customers. Prosumer want the best specs to show off there toy but don't have a reason to spend the pro level. Pro level needs stuff to work and are willing to spend for it. Two separate groups to sell two separate products too.  
    After reading about this I have no interest in ever using this camera on a set, its not a video or cinema camera. My inexpensiveness GH5S do amazing work for docs and B-Camera with my Red Gemini in a pinch or crash cam. Ill stick with Panasonic because they do have the best balance of both world or Pro and Prosumer.  Maybe I will look into the DC-S1H or the next generation as a replacement.

    amsh89es335 got a reaction from buggz in Perfect lighting kit in a backpack. Aputure Amaran AL-F7.   
    I put together a Interview Lighting kit that fits all into a backpack including 3 light stands, batteries, chargers and umbrellas. Got to test it out Saturday night and its perfect for interviews when traveling and I believe everything should be safe to carry on a plane. The new Aputure Amaran AL-F7 on camera LED light' have a very good energy efficiency when set at 55k color temperature and along with the GH5S and A7S Mk ii low light capabilities got me thinking about making a very useful scaled down lighting kit for travel. 
    I am using 4x Aputure Amaran AL-F7 LEDs with batteries. Each NP970 battery is getting little over 2.5hrs on a full charge. I have 10 in the kit giving me at least 5hrs of battery life plus 2 extra when running all 4 lights at 100%.
    In the images below I have some screen grabs from the interview I did last Saturday. I got with my GH5S with the Metabones Speed Booster F2 at ISO 400 with V-Log. The close up shot was with the A7S MK II at ISO 2000 with F2.8 while being 1 stop over exposed for SLog.
    I did a lot of looking around and for diffusing the key and fill and the best thing for being fast and compact enough to fit with in the backpack were Westcott Collapsible umbrella.
    So even though I own a lot of lighting and grip gear I can find myself using this very often. Air Travel would be a big one. Cramped spaces like offices or small living rooms for interviews. But also when I do documentaries sometimes the subject being interviewed can be intimated by lots of lighting and grip gear. This would give me the freedom to make the subject feel comfortable. 
    The kit with everything in the list below was $1050.

    amsh89es335 got a reaction from Mmmbeats in Perfect lighting kit in a backpack. Aputure Amaran AL-F7.   
    I put together a Interview Lighting kit that fits all into a backpack including 3 light stands, batteries, chargers and umbrellas. Got to test it out Saturday night and its perfect for interviews when traveling and I believe everything should be safe to carry on a plane. The new Aputure Amaran AL-F7 on camera LED light' have a very good energy efficiency when set at 55k color temperature and along with the GH5S and A7S Mk ii low light capabilities got me thinking about making a very useful scaled down lighting kit for travel. 
    I am using 4x Aputure Amaran AL-F7 LEDs with batteries. Each NP970 battery is getting little over 2.5hrs on a full charge. I have 10 in the kit giving me at least 5hrs of battery life plus 2 extra when running all 4 lights at 100%.
    In the images below I have some screen grabs from the interview I did last Saturday. I got with my GH5S with the Metabones Speed Booster F2 at ISO 400 with V-Log. The close up shot was with the A7S MK II at ISO 2000 with F2.8 while being 1 stop over exposed for SLog.
    I did a lot of looking around and for diffusing the key and fill and the best thing for being fast and compact enough to fit with in the backpack were Westcott Collapsible umbrella.
    So even though I own a lot of lighting and grip gear I can find myself using this very often. Air Travel would be a big one. Cramped spaces like offices or small living rooms for interviews. But also when I do documentaries sometimes the subject being interviewed can be intimated by lots of lighting and grip gear. This would give me the freedom to make the subject feel comfortable. 
    The kit with everything in the list below was $1050.

    I am using 4x Aputure Amaran AL-F7 LEDs with batteries. Each NP970 battery is getting little over 2.5hrs on a full charge. I have 10 in the kit giving me at least 5hrs of battery life plus 2 extra when running all 4 lights at 100%.
    In the images below I have some screen grabs from the interview I did last Saturday. I got with my GH5S with the Metabones Speed Booster F2 at ISO 400 with V-Log. The close up shot was with the A7S MK II at ISO 2000 with F2.8 while being 1 stop over exposed for SLog.
    I did a lot of looking around and for diffusing the key and fill and the best thing for being fast and compact enough to fit with in the backpack were Westcott Collapsible umbrella.
    So even though I own a lot of lighting and grip gear I can find myself using this very often. Air Travel would be a big one. Cramped spaces like offices or small living rooms for interviews. But also when I do documentaries sometimes the subject being interviewed can be intimated by lots of lighting and grip gear. This would give me the freedom to make the subject feel comfortable. 
    The kit with everything in the list below was $1050.
    Let me know what you think, if you have any questions or suggestions for improvements.

    I sold My Nikon D750 for the Sony A7r II and hated every moment of it (along with the FS7 and A7s I use at work). Then I sold the Sony A7r II to buy again a D750 for its reliability, low rolling shutter, good flat profile, and really good color science to shoot this earlier this year. 
    The Shots at comic con at the beginning and end were a mix of GH4 and Nikon D750.

    amsh89es335 got a reaction from mercer in Nikon Flat Profile Question...   
    On the D750 I always shoot on flat setting with the sharpness set to 2. In Resolve it's surprisingly easy to grade for a 8bit file and even more when recorded in 8bit 4:2:2 with an external recorder. I shot this whole short except for the scenes at comic con with the D750 in Flat with a external recorder and film convert with resolve.

    amsh89es335 got a reaction from August McCue in BMCC 2.5K holds up in 2016   
    I love it. Much sharper than a 5D Mk iii, good color, I have measured 12 stops of dynamic range in flat mode, Full Frame, low rolling shutter, Nice Motion Cadence, Very clean and smooth 1080 60p, no moire or aliasing. It just easy to use. But 1080p 4:2:2 8bit can only get so far especially for grading. I mean it grads very very well for being 8bit, best I have worked with. I love it for run and gun or where I do not have the time, budget, or post capabilities to color grade after wards or work with 4k. I sold it and jumped on the sony band wagon and bought Sony A7r ii with an external recorder had it for 6 months and hated It. I then bought the nikon a second time.  
    But I still want for my cinema projects something with RAW where ill be taking care of color grading and spending the time to work the image.  
    Thanks. So you feel it to be on par color wise and sharper than the 5D Raw. I had a year with the 5D raw on 6 small projects and still my favorite image. Just had to many issues with the hack to keep using it. Is the Dynamic range better since the 5D Mk III is less than 11.5 stops? And what about noise?

    I to had bunch of problems with the Sony A7r II. Menus freezing, White Balance Errors message randomly (super unreliable), corrupt files, it started to chip and screen scratched the first month, weird motion cadence issues, ISO exposure way off all the time, and over heating. I got rid of it after 6 months and went back to my trusty D750 with an external recorder until something in that price range with 4k full frame comes out. I was never more pissed about a camera than this $3200 piece of junk. On paper its super advance and seems like a great deal. But in reality in the field its unreliable.

    Also I am not saying the D750 is the best camera ever. But I am talking about in the low end under a few thousands for small productions or run n gun being super reliable with the least amount of headaches and clean slow motion (for low budget music videos on a 3 axis gimbal). And whish we would demand more of this instead of asking for higher resolution before giving a better overall image and camera first. 
    Im aware you can't rent high end cinema lenses for it, but why would you rent $100,000k worth of lenses on a shoot that can't afford more than a $2000-3000 camera that has rolling shutter worst than a 5D mk ii and a long list of other issues. I also collect Nikon ais manual lenses and use them on all my low budget projects and adapt them to alot of cameras so I guess the level of work my Nikon D750 is for this isn't an issue for me. Beyond high-end cinema lenses, Zies cp2, Samyang, all third party DSLR lenses all sell Nikon versions. So besides Canon lenses and other old slr lenses what can a 5D have that a Nikon can't? Can't add a PL lens on either anyways. Granted rental house will only carry EF mount so there is that issue because of supply and demand. By like I said why bother with lenes 10 times the price of the camera. When that budget is already so small it should be put into lighting and production value. 
    My experience as a DP and camera operator has been with all the REDs, Alexa, FS7 at my work (don't get me started on its quirks), C300, 7D, 5D Mk ii, 5D Mk iii ML RAW( which I miss having that image quailty but software kept crashing on shoots it's a shame Canon won't venture into that). 
    Sorry I'm rambelling on because I am just getting fed up of wasting time and money with the hype on these new spec and ignore solving the problems with the last generation of cameras and we are not pushing back on camera manufactures enough and  just say oh well let's just deal with our footage is super janky. When photographers only need to get a 5D every 6 years and do lots of professional work while our world you buy any price camera and 2 months later it's so outdated and people in Los Angeles for example are asking for you to bring a cinema camera that isnt even out yet but herd the hype. Then when you use it and your producer ask why does it look like that? Why are there iusses with it? Why is there so much rolling shutter. Why is there so much judder. Why is the colors look so bad it's not the camera the DP sucks I here this some many time from various producers and directors about many DPs. And because of the hype they hear these cameras are 4k and awsome and will look like a red or Alexa for cheap and won't listen to the details of why these cameras have issues and keep blaming the DP. 
    Are you talking slightly green. I'm talking the camera will give met a error message and go as far green as possible and refuse to white balance on anything. To fix it I just have to keep trying and hope it won't act up or just dial in the tempature as close as I can guess. 
    They don't work that well on it. It's a weird sharp hard ghost and strobing effect. Looks very unnatural especially at 180 shutter angle.

    Yes. But with the D750 Nikon completely step up on maturing 1080p full frame. Before Andrew's review on it I would of never consider it back in early 2015.

    I just sold my A7rii today. After having it for a few months I had nothing but huge headaches. I did many test with a 4k video devices recorder. Besides the worst rolling shutter I've ever seen no one seems to be talking about the horrible judder when panning. At first I thought it was just I'm shooting in 24p and viewing on a computer monitor at 60hrz. But further test in every setting, shutter speed and frame rate seem to have far more than every other camera I've shot with. Another problem is in 60p and 24p 1080 the noise level is bad. I also kept getting bad moire and aliasing in full frame 4k and 1080p especially in the highlights.
    Granted as a small compact photo camera it's frickin pretty awesome. But for video the image only looks good in crop mode 4k and as soon as it moves or things in it moves it falls apart. I barely took it on a shoot because of how much testing I had to figure out before I felt comfortable with all its down sides. And is not worth it.
    I went back to my Nikon D750 with a external recorder for now until I decided what to get next, but even though the 1080p image is softer everything else is far better. Rolling shutter very little. Noise level very clean upto 6400. Slow motion just as good as the 24p and very smooth. Color science far better. Dynamic range little less. Post with it is super easy. It's a shame this camera has gotten no attention, but it such a reliable camera its what we wanted out of the 5D Mk iii but quickly forgot about with all the 4k cameras that just keep adding more new problems, headaches, time and money all for the sake to say its 4k.
