  1. Impressive! IS OFF: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XgzQcwaHEg IS ON: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7JNUZEvd_A I love that this year's flagships are really pushing the envelope on DIS for videos. The Z5 series looks especially promising. Though it isn't perfect by any means, there doesn't seem to be too much warping or bending for such an aggressive motion. I'm also curious to see if the phones are compatible with the Cinema 4k app and what 200mbps looks like.
  2. Were these with the stock camera app, or with the C4k app?
  3. What does your current build look like spec-wise?
  4. Oh okay, I get it! Thanks guys! Seems pretty solid. Curious to see what the footage will look like and if anyone would do any DR tests (xyla chart or even informal ones). Btw, if you put a speed booster on this, would it cover the full size of the super35 image sensor? It would be cool if a speed booster could expand the circle closer to aps-h or full frame. I tried searching for details on this but can't seem to find anything. The Metabones XL page says it isn't compatible with LS-300, so I presume that means all of the MB mft speedboosters are incompatible. Still thought I'd ask!
  5. Whoa. What could 800% dynamic range mean. Isn't that a huge increase o.O.
  6. Wow. Just when I thought Samsung had finally slowed down on the feature-adding updates, they come out of nowhere with DIS. Unexpected to say the least. Results look fairly promising
  7. ​Huh, does that mean that with the SB the G7 becomes wider than 1.5x at UHD?
  8. This is insanity. I thought that the next big thing would be the A7smkii. But yeah, like others have said, I have relatively low expectations for the 5-axis stabilization because of the A7ii (although I'd love to be surprised). I'm curious if the dynamic range will still be as good as the A7s. Part of the reason the A7s has such great range is due to the fact that it has a 12mp sensor. Will it be as easy to achieve that with a 42mp sensor? Very exciting.
  9. TIGHT! This is a game changer for GH4 users!
  10. "Knock knock? Who's there? Knock...les..." HAHA, so ridiculous. I love it. I've been waiting for this movie for forever. It didn't disappoint. =)
  11. For depth of field, I think it may be easier to tell if there was a greater space between the subject and the background. As it stands now, the keyboard and the desk are basically adjacent with not so much space in between. For exposure, there should have been a more significant difference, so I'm not sure what happened.
  12. What format will you distribute in? Online, television, theatre screens? If online, 1080p is definitely a safe bet with the advantages stated above. If you'd like to though, Mattias Burling showed that uploading 1080p upscaled to 4k actually shows a far cleaner image on youtube than uploading the 1080p native because youtube gives it a better bit rate. I'm sure 2.7k to 4k would be even better in this scenario.
  13. To be fair (and you're probably well aware of this), dynamic range tests are in a lot of ways subjective. It depends on how many stops is considered usable to that particular tester (noise levels, exposure clarity, etc). Add to that, people conduct the test in different ways (using different charts, profiles, differences in transcoder, firmware version and knowledge like you said), and it becomes even more confusing. I personally don't own the NX1, so I can't give you a definitive answer, but from all of the footage I've seen, it feels like the NX1 stops a little sooner in the highlights compared to other cameras, but that the highlight roll off is a fair bit more attractive. It seems like the NX1 benefits from underexposing a little bit instead of the other way around (though again, I may totally be wrong about that). According to Andrew's findings against the C300, "If the C300 can do 12 stops the NX1 can do 11.5." Cinema 5d pegs it much more harshly at 10.1 stops. To my unscientific eye though, I've seen footage that squeezed a lot of detail from contrasty situations in a great way, and some that fail dramatically. It really depends on the context and how much you really need for that shot imo.
  14. Hmm, does the BMPCC speedbooster expand the crop more than the regular MFT speedbooster? If so, I'd be interested to see some footage Otherwise, it does seem a little risky with the shutter contact and all. But hey! If it works for you, that's great!
  15. Are you already invested in a lens system? Pros: Native compatability: Autofocus access (in camera-body or wireless tether), CA correction, stabilizationRelatively sharp lensGood zoom reachFast, especially at the wide endCons: Fly-by-wire focusingA little on the heavy sidePrice (debatable though. this point depends on what you need)Primes are generally sharper than zoomsPersonally, I think it's a great all-around option if you don't mind the fly-by-wire focusing. What's your budget like? AF isn't really a big necessity for video mode (it's more of a luxury if anything). In that case, depending on your budget, you have a whole world of lenses to choose from! On the low end, you can go for rokinon cine primes or a slew of ,older cheaper lenses. Sigma's Art series is pretty nice (the 18-35mm f/1.8 is really popular, and the 50mm is on par with the Zeiss Otus 55mm). On the high end, take a look at the Zeiss Otus 55 and 85. Take note that the Sigma and Zeiss lenses are best used for photographic purposes (as the focus throw isn't specialized for film, or might be too thin).
