  1. I was on a construction site shoot this weekend where a perfect shot materialized suddenly after we had just packed up the camera for the day. I pulled out my iPhone 6s and recorded it in 4k 100mpbs with Filmic Pro. Add a little simulated motion blur in after effects and you are golden. I've cut in filmic pro iphone footage to videos before and no one has ever noticed. Great iPhone gimbals are $130 now. These kinds of situations are where I see a phone being useful for filmmaking.
  2. IIRC Blackmagic never fixed it for the original BMCC though. I remember having to after-effects out sunspots :-D

    RED's new toy?!

    It'll be great if you look at your current cell phone and say to yourself "this needs more screws and vents."
  4. Are you guys seeing the moire on the couch on this A99 II footage also? It's at 10 seconds in.
  5. I'm a huge fan of the X70 for street candids, in large part to your review of it Mattias, so I thank you for that. Here's some of the stuff I've been doing around LA. https://www.instagram.com/quite_hearnian/
  6. I love my X-T2. I've only had it for about a month and used it mainly for stills so far. Planning on doing more video soon. I carefully chose my lenses around their IS zooms for video use and their weather-sealed primes for photo. Here's a couple shots I got in Hollywood.
  7. Aren't they deactivating the Hubble space telescope soon? Maybe you can get a good deal on it. If you want to breathe major new life into your 7D, look for a used Mosaic aliasing filter on eBay. It will also sweeten 7D raw in a big way.
  8. I'd love if this had an even slower mode for more cinematic zooms.
  9. Test many cameras by all means. Don't let the site be a grand rationalization for Gear Acquisition Syndrome though. It's unprofessional.
  10. Maybe you should just be happy with one camera Andrew
  11. I need a 10-bit 8k 120fps ProRes HQ $2500 camera to film my litterbox cleaning technique vlogs
  12. I think anyone who buys this camera definitely won't be disappointed. I say this as a former C100 MII owner. Just be aware of the size and weight. If you are doing casual weekend travel projects you should stick with the DSLR form factor.
  13. The NX looks oversharpened to me. Cell phone-esque.
  14. If the paying job is a wedding, I think the Mavic will be more than fine. If the paying job is a Netflix show, well maybe not. Although I see plenty of last-gen 2/3" sensor drone footage on reality TV. It looks fine. The Blue House guy's mavic footage looks a million times better.
  15. Here's a shot I got a couple of weeks ago with the Phantom 4 Pro+. Really impressed so far.
  16. Look back at his previous videos, he talks about his camera settings and post workflow. (he also does the +1 sharpening and spoiler, does not shoot in 4k)
  17. Check out this guy's settings / workflow:
  18. I don't think it's worse than the a6300, and I may have just noticed it way more because I was filming fast-moving cars with a 100-400. edit: Ouch I guess it is as bad as the Sony: https://www.dpreview.com/news/7057004492/don-t-get-ahead-of-yourself-canon-eos-5d-mark-iv-rolling-shutter-test
  19. I've been using 5DIVs where I work and just shot a rallycross race last week with them. The touchscreen and DPAF is great, and so is the 1080p 60. The rolling shutter in 4k is baaaaad though, especially for something with fast action like a car race. The 4k crop does come in handy when you need reach.
  20. Have you considered https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1313888-REG/wooden_camera_241600_zip_box_double_4x5_65.html
  21. My strategy was going to be to grab the 18-55 and 55-200 for IS and general video use and their new f2 weather sealed primes for photography. Even with IBIS I'd still want to use a gimbal for shots with movement. 4k gives you incredible leeway for warp stabilizing in post too.
  22. Can I ask about focus lock on/off in video mode? Does the X-T2 let you push the AF-Lock button to toggle this? So you can kind of do an electronic focus pull.
  23. It grades really well. First one is an M31 LUT and the second one is a a straight curve in colorista.
  24. Don't you find the huge 7 inch monitor a bit unwieldy to mount with a mirrorless camera like the X-T2? I was looking at the 5" SoundDevices recorder because of this.
