    Tossing some more love towards my favorite lens Voigtlander 40mm f2. Video grabs from D750
  2. The micro port on the Focus locks in place in a slot so it doesn't move and is relatively protected from the elements. I trust it more than an exposed full hdmi connection.
  3. I have the focus and it works well. 720p really does not make a difference at that size. For example the Blackmagic Recorder is 1080p but far worse of a screen. Brightness on it is good enough for most daylight usage.
  4. I have yet to see any great footage from these cameras...

    Nikon Z6 RAW

    For mirrorless AF Sony is way ahead in first, Nikon is second, Canon Third. The AF between Nikon and Canon is pretty damn close though. Canon is kicking ass in primes but Nikon is making incredible zooms. I'm trying to hold out until generation 2 of Canon/Nikon and generation 4 from Sony, hoping for 10-bit 4:2:2 internal from all of them.

    Nikon Z6 RAW

    Full frame. I'm also tempted by the Z6, my great dislike for external recorders ( unless it's SDI) has prevented me from pulling the trigger.
  7. Already have the Small HD focus which I love. I've dabbled in external recorders, they are not worth the hassle for me to own sperate media and add another layer of complications to my setup. I can never trust the HDMI and setting up rigging to lock it in place is overkill. Just never worth it for me.
  8. Thanks for doing this test. I'm seeing very nothing here that I could not achieve with the D750. Thanks guys, every so often I need to get my GAS under control. Love the image from the D750, and my deliverable will not benefit from 4K very much. Support gear and lighting it is!
  9. So I have a bit of a dilemma, starting a new job at a movie theater where a large portion of the content will need to be 2048x858 24p to confirm to DCI spec. I have three options I'm looking at: Nikon Z6: Already have Nikon glass and will be an image quality upgrade, with autofocus and IBIS support for my lenses. Fuji XT-3: Better colour, 10-bit. Better internal mics. Most importantly actual 24 fps and 2048x1080 recording. If anyone has an XT-3 and can get me sample footage in this mode I would greatly appreciate it. Nikon D750s: Already own 2 of them know how to push them, could invest heavily in glass/lighting instead of further bodies. What do you think?

    Atomos Neon

    Looks incredible and a great step forward for Atomos, who need to expand beyond the external recorder game before cameras internal recording get too good. They made a GIANT mistake in them not having SDI out of the box on them, requiring a add on box for the privilege. 99% of users that will buy this thing will want to use SDI.
  11. I tested both, raw is Far better if your doing color correction. Prores okay for basic correction, make sure you nail the white balance in camera. Really wish the pocket received the prores 4:4:4 codec from the Ursa mini. Love that codec.
  12. "Small" being for me around the size of an FS5.
  13. Just give me a small FF camera with great internal ND's... Hope it's a product that will result in competitors dropping prices.
  14. I think it's a large on set monitor with internal recording to two drives at a time. That can also be used as a grading monitor.
  15. The first company that gives me a Full Frame sensor in a camera with built in ND, XLR, and a good codec (10-bit 4:2:2) will get my money. The EVA-1 in L-mount with a full frame sensor would be awesome. The EOS mount on the EVA-1 (without the magic Canon AF) killed the camera for me. Also, never bet against Sony. The FS5 and the FS5 II both have had huge price drops recently. Would love to see a FS5 Mark III with the sensor from the A7III and their Venice colour. Hell even a FS5 with 10-bit and 4K 60p would win me over.
  16. Thanks for sharing some love for the D750. I have two and they are workhorses, great image, amazing codec for the bitrate, and killer low light ability. I wish the image was slightly sharper, but the colors are worth it.
  17. Inspiring images and great planning on his part to get the shot.
  18. If you need a quick turnaround, I really recommend Andrew's profile with internal recording.

    Davinci Resolve 16

    The studio version handles 10-bit more efficiently. So this may be the issue if you using the free version
  20. I disliked it in Arrival and Solo, and it grated me here. Not everyone has great screens, or watches the show in the dark, or on a Dolby certified HDR monitor. Contrast is your friend.
  21. Some great shots and an interesting edit. But I despise that heavy teal/orange grade.
  22. Broadcast requires 10 bit 4:2:2 The GH5s is the exact same sensor as the BMP4k, the sensor size is exactly the same.
  23. Voigtlander 40mm 1.2 with the A7III or A7s II. Plenty brightness for your needs and sharp from wide open. Anything wider or faster on full frame will up your budget considerably.
