    Sony A6400

    Yikes. That color too. 😕

    Perfect lighting kit in a backpack. Aputure Amaran AL-F7.

    Looks nice. I love a compact setup. Do you shoot mostly at night or in low luminance areas? It can be a struggle to compete with natural light in a bright space, having a few 5/1s can a life saver to create a nice look.

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    This has been said over and over but is not true. None of the BMP4K images come close. They're not even in the same realm in my opinion.

    Telescopic boom arm combined with reflector holder - does it exist?

    Would this work? https://www.ebay.com/i/312231238771?chn=ps&ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F711-117182-37290-0%2F2%3Fmpre%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.ebay.com%252Fi%252F312231238771%253Fchn%253Dps%26itemid%3D312231238771%26targetid%3D477926080956%26device%3Dm%26adtype%3Dpla%26googleloc%3D9032824%26poi%3D%26campaignid%3D1488062876%26adgroupid%3D57569192076%26rlsatarget%3Dpla-477926080956%26abcId%3D1139326%26merchantid%3D7994914%26gclid%3DCjwKCAiAjNjgBRAgEiwAGLlf2iWcELFEIa__CoKPc6sAnFVvdcFJTv0tmW19p_unqOxHvyIgdN1QmhoCJI4QAvD_BwE%26srcrot%3D711-117182-37290-0%26rvr_id%3D1785912243437%26rvr_ts%3Dba943caf1670ab14e963b67afffb24f7

    Alexa Mini vs C300 Mark II with internal reduction

    Realistically you don’t need RAW when the colors look that good. It does do 1080/12 bit internal. Gotta be one of the easiest cameras to get an amazing image out of with very little effort.

    Premiere Pro: My First Mistake

    I would assume something with the sequence settings. Can you switch to the camera's native? Are you able to check your settings on an old project file and mirror those.

    Canon XC10 4K camcorder

    Nah, I don’t think I really touched those files. Maybe used the three way color to ease off the black level a tiny bit or shift the WB.

    Canon XC10 4K camcorder

    I was using the C300 Log 2 or 3 LUT? Probably not the proper way to do it, but I am happy with the results. Sorry, I can't remember which profile it was. Early on people were recommending it as the best profile with the least amount of NR.

    Canon XC10 4K camcorder

    You may have seen this, but I shot this when I first bought the camera. Looking at this footage reminds of how crazy easy the camera is to shoot with and how good the stabilizer on the long end is crazy good. The shots at :09 were shot on the "standard" profile I believe, with the NR and Sharpening all the way down. They seem to have a thicker color than the other clips I shot. You could easily cut shots like that with a C300 and not notice. The indoor shots are all ETTR (expose to the right, kept the clouds jammed to the right on the histogram.) The highlights are so soft I don't think it would matter if they clipped anyway.

    Canon XC10 4K camcorder

    I forgot it went to 2.8 on the wide end. 2.8 is great. I just notice the image gets noticeably mushy if you’re all the way closed down.

    180 shutter degree rule for 60fps content

    It depends how fast your subject is moving and if you are following motion or not. I would suggest running tests. You're not going to be able to do any crazy twixtor or optical flow with 180 degree shutter.

    Canon XC10 4K camcorder

    You will, but it needs to be F3.5 - F8 and it needs to be 4K. I had my best luck with CLOG @ ISO500. Some of the built in profiles are nice if you turn the noise reduction all the way down. Talking about this camera makes me want this camera again. The colors it produces are just really so nice. Perfect camera to bring on trips, as long as you’re only shooting in the day. The range on the lens is incredible.

    Anyone looking into the Red Gemini?

    The RED cameras in general have to be one of the easiest cameras to find for.a rental. It all depends on your market, but in Seattle there are so many. Harder to find a Canon C300ii... Which I use a lot more.

    Slow Motion in Resolve - I must be missing something

    You need to conform to 24p. Don’t slow it down with slow motions tools, conform the media. I don’t use revolve but in premiere you right click on the clip in the media window. I am sure it is done similarly.

    I might get the C200

    Looks good. If you’re renting, why not the C300 mk2? I’m assuming for narrative the high but rate would be more valuable than the 60p in 4K.
