  1. This happens with a lot if not most photography zoom lenses, no? Had it with a lot of Canon and Panasonic lenses. Even the 12-35mm 2.8 has it, flicker and all.
  2. Thanks! I'm somewhat familiar with the approach but never fully quite grasped the use and effectiveness of proxy files. Is editing the proxy also editing the original media? Wouldn't it take up more space or am I getting that wrong?
  3. Not sure if you use it or not, but would DaVinci Resolve be a good alternative? Seems like it would make for an easier transition. Ah, makes sense. I remember reading that SSDs don't work well with constantly changing data though? But yeah, a RAID setup through Thunderbolt is something I would consider too.
  4. I believe so. What advantages would an external SSD have over a fast external HDD for editing?
  5. Been working with a Macbook Pro 2012 for some time now, and while it does a decent job for smaller 4k projects, bigger files will slow the hardware down and sometimes crash. All I've done is upgrade my ram from 8 to 16gb. I have an external Touro drive running at 7200rpm but I honestly barely use it... would that help ease the macbook's strain by editing through the drive? Then there's the video card issue. It's an integrated Intel Graphics card which isn't much, but I hear a lot about external video cards. At the price though (around 800 USD at the very least), it seems like I could put those funds in getting a solid desktop or laptop, but then I couldn't work with FCPX which leaves me in a rut. Any advice? Trying to be cost effective here, so the lower the cost is, the better.
  6. Retracted. Seems the 10 bit is limited in 1080 for both
  7. You can go even cheaper. The likes of the FZ1000 and G7 CAN output 10 bit 4k.
  8. This looks like phonebloks, aka Project Ara....
  9. No other kind of lens for the m43 compares like the lx100 and it's great to boot. Other than the kit lens or a fixed focal pancake, any other lens defeats the Gx80's compactness.
  10. But it seems environmental conditions still has an effect on it if external cooling actually does help. Regardless, any chance I had of considering the a6300 as an option has pretty much dwindled. If I understand correctly, Sony's own rx100iv seems to be built more operational even with the 5 min limit. Though I do still hear some overheating issues if not as glaring as the a6300.
  11. So with Summer just around the corner, how more likely would the 6300 overheat even in milder conditions? I can't even consider this as a reliable backup if that's the case...

    Sony a6300 4k

    That's seems quite a reach, but a shot that specialized, might as well be done in post.
