  1. Did you try in Natural instead of Standard? I find that Natural has lower contrast to start with so my guess was that it would be better for color grading. Especially since I read that many people shoot in Natural picture profile on the GH4 instead of the Cine-D. I shot with both cameras in neutral with C-3, S-5, NR-2 and got the same footage look that was easy to mix together. I did not do any tests though. Since the NR is awful in the LX100, I guess setting it to -5 is the right decision.
  2. Here are some tests shots I did to see how stable I can be with the help of the internal stabilization in the LX100.
  3. Well, by having an aperture ring on the lens and always having live view with Zebra and a histogram, it can't be really faster to adjust the exposure on the spot.
  4. My first week with the LX100: http://www.mirrorlessjourney.com/blog/2014/11/my-first-week-with-the-panasonic-dmc-lx100-1 :D
  5. lol, thanks, I did not even see the whole... I'll go take another coffee.
  6. I'm pretty sure there is a way because you can use a DC Coupler (http://shop.panasonic.com/shop/model/DMW-DCC11) and an AC Adapter (http://shop.panasonic.com/shop/model/DMW-AC10) with the LX100. Those parts are listed in the accessories in the manual.
  7. Thanks to Tosvus and Someguy for posting my videos here. I got the LX100 last Wednesday and I'm in the honeymoon phase. I did the Coffee video as a first test and I like the results. For the Baby Workshop video, I mixed the GH4 and LX100 video and honestly, I think the quality is very close if not the same. I shot both cameras with the Natural Color profile (which I keep reading gives better results than Cine-D) with Contrast -3, Sharpness -5 and NR -2. The only thing I did in post was adding a bit of sharpness and I crushed the black a little. someone asked about the stabilization in video: It does a good job. the problem is the camera is so light and small, it's tough to get a good handle on it. What I did was used my camera strap as a stabilizer and for shots without movement, the result is perfect. Trying to walk around like that though is tough. I did not have time to try to balance my Steadycam with the LX100. I think I might actually have to put some weight above because I fear the LX100 will be too light. So far, I love the camera. It is not perfect but it has a character of its own. If you want to see some pictures I took with it, I'll be happy to share. If you have any questions, I'll try to answer them.
