  1. Yes the arm has both standard thread mount types on the bottom of the handle. If you have an arm you will be able to use it to hold the monitor.
  2. Considering that in order for that menu to support it you would need Blackmagic to implement it. Given that it's not a standard LOG profile, and is backed by no major manufacturer, and is only available on 3 cameras, there is not a chance in hell of it happening. Andrew has no pull with blackmagic design, and it is ridiculous to expect him to simply because you want it to fit in your existing workflow.
  3. On these small cameras the ease of use and interface cannot be understated. Much prefer the OSMO or DJI cameras due to being much easier to operate.
  4. Hope your correct. I think there is very little they could take away from the FX9 that I would be okay loosing when buying a FX6. At this point 4k 10bit 60p is a minimum requirement for a cinema camera purchase.
  5. Wait for the blackmagic if you value audio. Preamps in the Ninja V are reportedly terrible.
  6. Z6 viewfinder is miles ahead of the A7III. I've owned both and while the A7III is okay your constantly aware your looking at a screen. There is a slight delay in the Z6 when recording video that is very annoying however. The S1 viewfinder I would say is about the same in my brief trying of it. S1 has significantly better specs, but also expensive lenses as does the Nikon. One thing to consider for future work. The Sony, Panasonic, and Canon cameras have or will have cinema cameras that you will be able to use their lenses on. I love my Z6 despite it's quirks, but I'll never be able to use their glass on a native high end cinema body. This is a factor if you want to choose a system.
  7. You can get N-log out of anything that takes HDMI so yes it will work. I've found the 1080p to be excellent on the camera, I should test what the n-log gets me at 1080p though.
  8. The southerner attachment is because the southern band lynyrd skynyrd wrote the song, you are correct I should have just said the band instead of the regional attachment it created in my head. There are idiots in every region of the U.S. Calling someone a "Simple Man" is close to Simpleton: "a foolish or gullible person".
  9. Some frame grabs from a promo I'm working on for a local inn. Fruit was captured in portrait, outdoor greeting in FLAT.
  10. Honestly just "Goodwin" would be my preference. Simple, good message, and has the benefit of being tied to your name. "Simple Man" has negative connotations for me, I see "simple man" and I think 1) uneducated 2) Idiot 3) Southerner Flashing Light is not bad, but makes me think of a strobe light.
  11. Heavier and doesn't have a method to lock the HDMI. It does have better screen and Cinema DCI format support.
  12. In general I have found that audiences notice differences in color far more than differences of the background blur or object separation.
  13. Agreed. My SmallHD Focus has served me incredibly well and I haven't seen a better locking HDMI solution than the one it employs.
  14. Adorama seems to have dropped the price of it's used gear by a large margin. FS5's and URSA Pro cams are significantly cheaper on there than other sites.

  15. Yeah and the sensor has such a high readout speed there really is no reason this thing shouldn't have at least 4K 60p
  16. Currently I have 2 lens sets. 24-70 G and 70-200 G Lenses to go with my Z6, probably going to grab a 16-35 or 14-28 at some point to finish it out. Prime set of Voigtlanders SL 20, 28, 40, and 90. All have a matching look. Zooms for coverage, primes for art. Haven't decided where to go next for my glass, it's a toss up between 2 sets I'm looking at. VOigtlander E mount Low Light: 21mm 1.4, 40mm 1.2, 110mm 2.5 Nikon Creamy Dream Set: Nikon 28mm 1.4, 58mm 1.4, and 105mm 1.4 lenses Agreed, the UMP G2 ticks all the boxes except the mount/sensor combo. I would probably go for a nikon 17-55 2.8, but like you said older optical design. How do you like the FS5? I'm thinking of picking one up now that they are so cheap and like you said they can be used with speedboosters. Tempted to get one of them and upgrade to the FX9 down the line. E-mount is such a better mount than Canon EF. Hoping Blackmagic's next camera joins the L-mount alliance and is full frame.
  17. Honestly what I watch the most is The Great British Bake Off. Every season multiple times. Favorite dramatic series I've seen this year is Chernobyl. That is absolutely incredible.

    I've posted about them several times on this forum, but I have a full set of Voightlander SL lenses. 20mm 3.5, 28mm 2.8, 40mm f2, and 90mm 3.5. I've shot a entire short film on them. I had the 58mm 1.4 but never used it because the rendering on it was very different than the rest. This was shot entirely with them on an NX1: Shot with the 40mm on a D750 Some recent stills: 40mm 40mm 20mm 28mm
  19. Yes it is connected to the bottom of the Smallrig Cage. Only thing missing from photo is a microphone or wireless lav receiver on the shoe mount. As a side note I really wish there was a hole for the monfrotto arm on the right side of the cage so I could swap sides if I need to.
  20. Here's a quick one of my current setup. Nikon Z6, Smallrig cage, and Monfrotto arm with a SmallHD Focus monitor. Recently got the Monfrotto arm and I love it, very sturdy and easy to adjust.
  21. The FS5 can only output 8bit 4:2:2. Don't know about the FS7.
  22. Yeah I don't think 6K will ever be a delivery standard. It's ideal for better 4K delivery. 4K or 8K as delivery standards will be the norm. I'm still mostly delivering in 1080p so 4K acquisition would be plenty for me. It's interesting that I've seen some arguments against getting the new Sony FX9 is that it's not future proof because it's only 4k internally.

    Really wish Tamron would get these on the Z mount.
