  1. I'm looking for a new personal camera system that can deliver excellent stills and video in one, so the GH5 isn't for me. If nothing new and notable is introduced at NAB, I think it's the X-T2 for me.
  2. Thanks. I just wanted to verify that manual smooth focus pulls are possible. I want to be able to use a follow focus down the road if need be. I have a Fuji X70 for stills which I love, but the predictive manual focus is an absolute mess.
  3. I've had this happen before with B&H. You'll probably have to give it another week, but if you keep calling their customer service they will send you out a new one.

    I'm Sorry

    Jesus loves you
  5. I'm not talking about the focus ring feel or smoothness - I meant the fact that a fast focus pull will catapult the focus to infinity while a slow, steady turn barely moves it. All the focus-by-wire X lenses do this, right?
  6. Someone remind me not to click on this thread again
  7. I think Jesus would have shot on the Digital Bolex
  8. Do still photographers actually like that? I don't get why they do this. Sounds like a follow focus would be completely unusable.
  9. The one thing holding me back from pulling the trigger on an X-T2 is the predictive focus-by-wire of most of Fuji's lenses where the response isn't linear. Is manual focusing usable at all?
  10. What do I have to do to call myself a storyteller Contaxes look good, what is your set? Did you build it on eBay?
  11. Why do that when you can argue on the internet
  12. The only GH5 video I've seen so far that I've really liked is James Miller's. All that it took was a Zeiss Otus and a 4k external recorder to accomplish a pristine baked-in-LUT downscale of 4k to 1080p. Every other test video simply doesn't have colors I like. The film look isn't there. If you told me all of it was shot with a GH4 I'd believe you.
  13. I'm hoping DJI will put the 1" sensor from the Phantom 4 Pro or the MFT from the Inspire 2 on their osmo gimbal soon.
  14. I've used a GH4 with the speed booster and EF lenses and it's really awkward. You have a tiny camera hanging off a huge front-heavy lens. Hopefully the size increase on the GH5 makes this less cumbersome.
  15. Andrew is in the throes of New Camera Mania (™) and it won't wear off for the GH5 until a new "pretty good" prosumer camera is released that has a lot of shortcomings but produces a decent image.
  16. Thanks man! No I moved to LA and got a full-time job doing the video work for a software company. I don't need a crazy amount of freelance gear anymore - I am looking at a more compact solution that can handle photo and video work in one. Maybe a Fuji X-T2 or something new announced at NAB.
  17. I'm considering liquidating all of my Canon gear just to downsize and do things a bit more casually, but the one camera I won't sell is the XC10. It's too useful.
  18. All fuji lenses are focus-by-wire, yes? How is the responsiveness when twisting the focus ring in manual mode?
  19. They're still using off-the-shelf scientific sensors right? I think that's where these problems came from.
  20. Up for sale is a like-new DJI Ronin gimbal. (full-size, not the Ronin-M) Comes with two OEM batteries, original hard case, monitor mount, and an AerialPixels Thumbstick Controller. This gives you an actual tactile joystick and not a virtual button like the DJI thumbstick. https://aerialpixels.com/shop/gimbals/dji-ronin-series/dji-ronin-proportional-thumb-joystick/ Asking $1400 OBO for local pickup in Los Angeles.
  21. If you buy one, be very careful with the installation. It can shear the gold electrical contacts of your camera body right off if you're not careful.
  22. Hi Olik, did you get your section 107 certificate? Any study tips?
  23. How is the focus-by-wire on the Fuji lenses? Is it responsive for manual focusing in video?
  24. Here's kind of a cheesy campaign vid I just shot on the XC10.
  25. If you can't pull back the highlights check your LUT. I've noticed some LUTs will blow them out and there's nothing you can do with the curve to bring it back. When I re-grade the shot from scratch in colorista the highlights look great.
