  1. IBIS really saved my butt on a corporate shoot today. Really love that I can get away with handholding it. Here is one with a Voigtlander 21mm f1.4 M-Mount that I'm trying out. without issue.
  2. What focal length are you looking for? Namely at the wide end? Plenty of good telephoto zooms, it's the wide angle ones that are hard.
  3. Sony has an excellent 16-55 2.8 for E-mount. It will look completely the same, but you WILL get a stop better lowlight performance. Sensor crop DOES NOT effect the light level hitting the sensor. Don't think these really show how highlights behave, it's clearly a overcast day.
  4. Honestly once you get to that price point I think the FS7 is a better buy.
  5. Honestly I'm not going to buy the gimbal for this, just excited to see it because it means at some point the system will be available off of the gimbal setup. DJI should have realized how popular this feature would be and sold it as a separate device for $500. I would buy it in a heartbeat.
  6. Um, no? It's a M43 mount camera with No ND, No XLR, and no monitor. Slightly different category than a EVA-1 follow up.
  7. A S1H with Full Frame 60p, SDI, ND, and XLR. That's really it.
  8. If it works well you have a customer. Keep us posted.
  9. Just bought a S1 and a 24-105mm lens for very VERY cheap, goodbye nikon.
  10. It would be if Blackmagic recorders were not complete and utter garbage. I owned the 12G and it had horrific input and output lag.
  11. Um yeah. I'm now going to sell all my Nikon gear. Colossally disappointing, especially have the RAW remain a paid upgrade and no 10-bit. Hell they couldn't even remove the goddamn 30 minute time limit. The fact this camera has NO VIDEO IMPROVMENT AT LAUNCH is tone deaf idiocy. Hell the 4K 60p being added later as a firmware upgrade and not being able to record it externally just feels like a final kick in the teeth.
  12. That really did not look good to me. Pretty scenery sure, but the image itself didn't blow me away. Overly sharpened with a high shutter speed, surprised he didn't use an ND on it.
  13. Possible answer, Dolby paid them. I'm someone who thinks the Dolby Vision workflow is incredible, doing HDR and SDR in single grading pass is witchcraft but their system pulls it off, only problem with it is it is proprietary and expensive.
  14. Even with RAW stills you need to update Lightroom/Capture One/Etc. every time a new camera comes out.
  15. While that is a beautiful video, with a fantastic grade, I really dislike that these things are labelled "Dolby Vision." Youtube DOES NOT support Dolby Vision, only HLG, which is worse than HDR10 format in terms of image quality. It may have been graded in Dolby Vision but it is not Dolby Vision display on youtube.
  16. No, none of these compressed RAW formats are actually RAW, they are compressed raw formats that toss out data. They all need to be designed on a camera by camera basis.
  17. BRAW does not work that way, it has to be calibrated to each camera.
  18. When grading files in HDR, I can instantly tell when a file is of lower quality. Grading on a 8-bit timeline doesn't really show the difference, but on a 10 or 12-bit HDR timeline on a HDR panel it is night and day. So for me for a "Thick" image. is 10-bit 4:2:2 or better with at least 14+ Stops of DR.
  19. The 1080p 120 is so good I'd be happy with that if they gave me it in 10-bit log.
  20. But those images were not captured in 5-bit, that is an indicator for final compression, it is NOT an indicator of quality of it as the capture format.
  21. Definitely does not cover Full Frame video. the 11-20 is a much better lens and covers on the long end. Edit: My mistake, thought this was referring to the 12 - 24 F4. I don't have experience with the 14 - 20 F2. The 11-20 covers Full Frame video from 14-20mm
  22. Which camera are you trying to convert? I think if your using the A7s III you can bring and convert the files in Catalyst Browse, unfortunately I can't find online examples of that.
  23. I would bet that Resolve get support for it at some point. It's quickly becoming an industry standard.
