    Fuji X-H2S

    I love the look of these Fuji mirrorless cams - just waiting for them to get their video AF sh*t together. If they had I would've bought a couple of XT4s and called it a day, years ago. Any word on whether it's looking better with the XH2S?
  2. Sorry to hear! I have a 1DC and have also been eyeing a Ninja V so will be watching this thread. Hope it all works out tho!
  3. Apologies if this has been answered before, but does the image stabilization of Canon EF lenses with IS, work properly with the R5 when mounted with an EF-RF adapter and IBIS is turned off?
  4. Not at all, it's price point really... used C300 MKII's are going for $4-5K (Canadian) around my parts vs a used C70, which goes for $8-9K, and now 1DX MKII's are hitting $2-3K levels. I actually started looking at the R5, now that the no battery + Ninja V is a proven option. You can get one + a Ninja V and eos adapter w/ ND for about 5K too. So I feel like if I did that, I'd be content for a long long time.
  5. Appreciate the feedback and didn't realize noise was an issue with the C300 too, good to know, thx!
  6. It was never an either/or... but with theory in mind, what might offer better latitiude in post (for grading, punching in, VFX, etc) when shooting at 60p? The 10 bit color depth of the C300 MKII or the 4K resolution of the 1DX MKII? Or do other factors like bit rate need to be considered as well?
  7. I'm still kind of on the fence between the C300 MKII and the 1DX MKII, which is why I was inquiring on people's real world experience working with the C300 MKII's 2K 60p @ 422 10 bit vs the 1DX MKII's 4K 60p @ 422 8 bit, in post. I'll admit I'm not tech savvy in my understanding of which combo of resolution/color depth might trump the other. Aside from that, my instincts are telling me that any camera purchase I make moving forward - aside from having decent DPAF - should at least have 422 10 bit. Over here in Canada I'm seeing 1DX MKII's going for close to 2K and C300 MKIIs hitting sub $5K... and if I was going for the C300 MKII, it'd be with a friend, so I'd essentially be paying about the same price as a used 1DX MKII. Also, does the C300 MKII do 4K 60p RAW externally?
  8. Yeah looks like 2K 60p is 422 10 bit...
  9. Didn't realize 60p was 12bit 444, is that internal as well?
  10. C300 MKII does 2K 422 10bit and 1DX MKII does 4K 422 8bit... so wondering which one might be better... does the 10bit of the C300 MKII give it the edge or does the 4K of the 1DX MKII give it the edge?
  11. Anyone have experience with the 2K 60p on the C300 MKII? Wondering how it compares to the 4K 60p on the 1DX MKII? And is there a clear winner between the two?
  12. Thanks for this, had never heard of cinematch, seems like a gamechanger if they keep updating it...
  13. I agree. In a perfect world I'd pick up the C70 or 1DX MKIII but they are well beyond my budget as a hobbyist. If I recall you were a fan of the 1DC as well, would you sell yours now if u were in my shoes?
  14. Yes, which is why the plan was to sell the 1DC and get another 5D MKIII (I already have one) along with an XT3/4. That way if I can't match the XT3/4 to the 5D MKIII (ML) I can still use it for b-roll but the XT3/4 would also become my walk around family/travel camera.
  15. Bcuz I actually like the look, don't mind the workflow, I wouldn't have to worry about color matching and the bang for buck is pretty undeniable. I see them going for as little as $700 CAN right now... but also, at that price I could totally pick up another XT3 later... I guess my main question is should I even sell the 1DC? It has always felt to me like a collectors item...
  16. Very helpful and very much appreciated, and yes matching the cameras color wise was def a concern, but in my mind I figured absolute worst case scenario I can always just use the two 5D's as A and B's (I'm totally fine with what ML gives me) and the XT3/4 as my b-roll cam. At least until I get good at color matching. Would you say that the Metabones speedbooster is the best one to get IQ-wise compared to other brands?
  17. Some context, I'm a 9-5 producer (radio/tv) but in my spare time I do passion projects for my family, and to document the history of my local Black indie music scene. I've used a 1DC/5D MKIII (ML hack) as my A and B cams respectively for years with no issues (the bigger files and ML conversion workflow is fine for me as well). But lately I've been thinking that maybe the most prudent think to do would be to keep the 5D MKIII, sell the 1DC (prob get $2-3K CAN), buy another 5D MKIII ($800 CAN) and pick up a XT3/4 ($1-2K CAN) to become my new A cam along with a Metabones speedbooster (so I can continue to use my Canon glass). This way I upgrade my A cam to something newer, but that can also fit in my pocket for family photos and when I want to be a bit more incognito (say overseas). Seem like a fair move or nah?
  18. Was literally sitting here at this moment contemplating my upgrade options with respect to the 5D MKIII. I have had a 1DC and 5D MKIII combo (plus easy access to a few other 5D MKIIIs owned by colleagues) for a while now with no complaints, but I've been wondering about what the prudent upgrade move would be... I want something smaller (like an XT3/4 which could become my new A cam + walk around shoot whatever camera. So do I ditch the 5D MKIII or ditch the 1DC? I think both images hold up really well in 2021 for the hobbyist/grassroots/ indie stuff I do... But to keep it on the OP's question I'd agree that for the current used price the 5D MKIII is still a great option, although not necessarily for the person looking for convenience as well... for that I'd say an XT3 is the way to go for sure.

    PC Builds

    If you don't mind me asking, how much did this setup cost u total?
  20. @Kisaha sorry to bug but you have spoken fairly highly about the Audix SCX1-HC. I have the opportunity to pick up the micro version of that model, the M1250BHC for a pretty good price used, about $175US. I would be using it primarily for indoor talking head interviews along with a Rode NTG3. I'm assuming the biggest issue will be getting it mounted properly on a stand or with a boom pole that's close enough to the talent for it to actually be effective. But wondering if there are any other issues I'm not considering (like does handling noise increase the smaller the mic is? etc) and basically whether this unit is even a worthwhile investment when weighing the price with what I'll be using it for? Thx...
  21. Anybody with experience/opinions on the Audix M1250BHC ? Also a hyper but unlike the SCX1-HC I have yet to see any serious discussions about the pros/cons of this particular model.
  22. I know the Sekonic c800, c700 (etc) are the pro standard, with few performance complaints. I've also seen tons of threads with people automatically dismissing app based options like the Lumu light and illuminati im150. I'm wondering if anyone has actual real world repeatable experience with the Lumu or illuminati, and can speak to the efficacy of either of these two color measuring options, especially considering that they're a fraction of the price of the Sekonic stuff. Thx.
  23. Just to clarify, there is no bottleneck right now... I'm just looking for ways to better the computer's performance on DRS15/16 with a max budget of $800US. What I was wondering is whether spending $400 on another 1080TI MINI would be a fair investment or would my cpu undermine any performance gains I might get from the purchase... either way, I think phrasing my question as what you and others might spend $800US if they were looking to better the performance of this Hackintosh, is a better way of looking at it, apologies for the confusion, lol...
  24. I guess the more pointed question would be... if people had the Hackintosh build I have and $400-$800US they were willing to spend to make their DRS15 or 16 editing/coloring, etc experience better... what would they spend it on?
