  1. I've never got why people mark this down as such a big con. My favourite camera from the past few years was my C100 Mk2, didn't need IBIS at all. The form factor doesn't need it. The main reason for IBIS (IMO) on the hybrids are the form factors aren't designed for video use, they're stills cameras and they're not the easiest to hold steady.
  2. One thing I noticed when I looked into Resolve and tried to use it a few times is the massive lack of third party plugins for transitions, titles and effects and the ones that do exist seem to be such a horrid workaround to get working, that is if you can get them working at all. They need to add easy support for things like this.
  3. I'm surprised at the price. £4800 in the UK. Wasn't the rumour near £6K. Be interested to see what Sony do with the FX6 and the price on that, as at only £1K more than the a7s3 here, this is tempting.
  4. Yep, the one card recording is on the negative list and in bold! Can't believe it can't do it in this day and age.
  5. Same! It'll be early next year, so plenty of time to see real life material from both Canon and Sony.
  6. If they do add CLOG3 and ALL-I via firmware to the R6 it makes it something to look at. My main filming is weddings, so to know (UK wise) 4K 25 doesn't overheat will be the key and get 4K 50 for select shots. It'll be a hard choice between the R6 and Sony a7siii!
  7. Left it till today to try again. Switching it on and off to troubleshoot haha! No joy though. Must be a Mac / Resolve issue. I've ended up converting it to ProRes.
  8. On a Mac the only option I could see was for HW accelerated H264 and H265. Tried it off and no difference. This may be an issue for any new cameras footage then in Resolve! I'm guessing they'll need to fix it as presently both Premiere and Final Cut on the same system can import and work with it, even if I have to use proxies. I've sent them feedback anyway.
  9. Annoyingly it isn't those two things. I've actually made sure I've got the latest version. The program literally can't see the clips. In the Media Pool when I go to add the media, the folder they are in just shows empty. So can't even optimise them or anything.
  10. Anyone having issues with Resolve? I can't even get it to see the footage at all. Final Cut works fine.
  11. I'm going to be very interested to see if/when this camera overheats and if they're as open as Canon seem to have been. All the specs being thrown out at the moment, it'll go up in flames after 60s of recording in a normal a7 style body!
  12. NOW SOLD Hi All Selling one of my GH5 kits. Body - GH5 (purchased 18/07/2017 from LCE) plus 2 additional Hahnel batteries. Still has original box PLUS vlog key. Also included in a Metabones Speedbooster XL (purchased Feb this year). £1500. Lenses - 1x Tamron SP35mm Prime and 1x Tamron SP 85mm Prime, £500 each. Both purchased from WEX earlier this year. Whole kit for £2350. I'm in Manchester, so UK sale only and even better if buyer is local, can check kit out. Postage fees will apply otherwise. Not taking offers.
  13. So glad I invested in a GH5 setup. 2 small things that I'm really happy are in this update, aspect markers and a way to lock out the display button.
  14. The display button is a massive pain. There are some posts on the GH5 FB group about using a small washer to cover it up.
  15. I've not had it six months, just 6 weeks! But I have fallen in love with it. After using and not liking, specifically the colours off a GH4 a few years back, I was hesitant but I love the image I get and I'm only using the low bit rate MP4. When I've enough storage space I'll certainly start using the 10bit files. No issues at all so far in 'low light' at wedding receptions. Ergonomically as well it just feels right it the hand as well.
  16. I only had it a few months and used it 4-5 times and really didn't get on with it. Fell in love with GH5 from first use.
  17. I got this setup (GH5, 12-35 and 35-100 f2.8ii) a few weeks back. Been on a few test shoots and shot a couple weddings with them. Impressed so far. So small an compact especially after lugging round a C100 and Canon 70-200. I've not seen any IBIS/Dual IS issues apart from one small thing, every so often it seems to 're-centre' itself (best way I can describe it) and the the image just jumps for a moment. But I also had this on my Sony A6500 with IBIS as well.
  18. I'm a wedding shooter and just moving to GH5. Got a body by my desk and awaiting the two lenses I've ordered to arrive. I've gone for the 12-35 and 35-100 f.2.8ii models to give me the old favourite 24-70 and 70-200 equivalent. I'll be buying some Primes later in the year, probably the Leica ones. I've heard good things on the 12-60 as well. A couple of years ago I did have a GH4 with Speedbooster plus Sigma 18-35 and had issues with it. A number of times it'd cut out and just say 'lens not attached', happened during a ceremony once. Sort of lost my trust in using them, hence I've gone native glass this time. I've also used the Xume adapters before and have got some for this kit. Best things I've ever purchased, makes changing NDs or filters between lenses really easy.
  19. Hey, sorry taking a bit to reply, it hasn't sent me a notification of a reply to the topic! I've funding a GH5 (already purchased) with this sale, so unfortunately not.
  20. Sony A6500. Purchased end April from Wex (receipt available). Comes with a 1 year extended Sony service plan as well. 1 spare Hahnel battery. Boxed. £950 plus £10 UK postage or pick up in Manchester.
  21. The Sony rumour sites have got the a7iii down for November, with no real whispers of a a7r or A7s iii which they expect to be therefore next year. No one is reporting anything for this summer unless Sony have literally kept it so under wraps no one has a clue.
  22. I'm selling a pretty new (10 weeks about) Zhiyun Crane. Barely used. All boxed still and with a small Manfrotto 209 Table Top Tripod. £500 UK sale. I'm in Manchester or can deliver to a UK address.
  23. I very quickly found that shooting anything other than 4K on an A6500 is a bad idea. The 1080 image is soft. Low light is decent enough though, I've been to 6400.
  24. This is fantastic. Blacks don't look crushed on my iMac monitor. Certainly not crushed like the screengrabs posted do. May I ask which Black Pro Mist filter you used? 1/4, 1/8 etc...
