  1. Apple is likely interested in acquiring RED for their hydrogen and raw patents as well as help for their new Apple TV+ service. Attacking the legitimacy of the patents is probably just part of their negotiating. I believe this will all be revealed around the nearing Mac Pro launch... including talks of how easy it is to playback 8K on it in real time,
  2. I have a strong feeling the S1 will have ProRes RAW available over HDMI out via a paid firmware update AND I'm hoping we see "Atomos RAW" at NAB as well so we're not restricted to editing in FCPX. Seems like compressed RAW, internal and external, is going to be one of the key focuses at NAB this year.
  3. Yeah V-log L with GH4 4K 8 bit footage was a no-no, Panasonic didn't even publicly deny that. That issue of not being able to push the image is even more so the case with higher fps where you get a really low bitrate per frame. How'd you come up with 25mbps? I'm guessing you mean 25MBps even though I know you know your stuff and that that's not the normal way to communicate it... so I'm a little confused here. VFR was 100mbps on the GH4 and I imagined it'd be around 150mbps on the GH5. I'm interested to see how the REC 709 profile looks, natural with a lowered contrast was a good baked in look on the GH4. Also, there's LUT preview monitoring, right? Does that include luts you can import? I know you can save your camera settings to an SD card - so I imagine adding in different input or creative luts wouldn't be difficult. Also, thank you for the GH5 content!
  4. Were the issues with connecting Canon's IS lenses, such as the 70-200 2.8 IS II, through a metabones speedbones speedbooster (more specifically XL) ever addressed? I own a GH4, GX85, and the 70-200 and it's unfortunate that it's been unusable on my GX85 due to IBIS and IS having serious conflict issues
  5. Incredible work, thank you for committing to making this! I loved the skyline shots especially when they changed from day to night. I'm a Miami local who spends a lot of time in these areas shooting video... great to see it this way. I'm really amazed how much time must have gone into this, definitely something to be proud of on its own. The final drone shot with the plane flying in was a nice touch too. I do a lot of drone flying around downtown and Miami Beach, but would eventually like to do some aerial out of a helicopter... Any advice on that? Either technique or who to go with for the service. I have a ronin M for stabilization and a GH4 with a speedbooster that works out to a 1.5x crop... Not sure which focal lengths I would bring especially considering I wouldn't be able to rebalance midflight. Would you need a special permit or training to film with this setup for non commercial purposes? Any help would be great, thanks... And once again, incredible job on this video.
  6. Haven't shot any footage yet, these are just my first impressions. Surprised that there is no standalone charger or body lens cap, not a big deal though since they can be bought separately if needed. Really wish I could charge the camera off USB while it's on, that way batteries can be an after thought with a large portable USB in the hotshoe. I'm not seeing a 23.976 mode, only 24 - could this be problematic for syncing with Canon DSLR footage? I used 24 on the GH4 for a long time and I think I noticed some drifting with long clips so I switched out of the 24hz Film Mode, though I think the most recent plural eyes is suppose to correct for this. The EVF is pretty bad! Makes me think I'd likely suffer from eye problems if I actually depended on it, suppose I've been spoiled by the GH4 and A7 series. The body has a nice weight to it that I didn't expect and I like the look of the silver trim that I went with. Coming from a GH4 the shutter, aperture and ISO buttonlayout feels a bit awkward to me... Especially the ISO, but I guess that's mostly do to the nature of the camera. Glad they used plastic instead of rubber for the back dial as my GH4 one seems to be whithering away. The IBIS is amazing... I love being able to take my Sigma 50 Art and get shots that look like they are on a slider while using my hands. Assuming I wish they had 1080p 50mbps instead of just 20... Also no variable frame that automatically slows the footage down in camera, but these are expected based on the G7. Glad they left the adjust feature in the white balance menu, that's a selling point for me. Going to have to test my 70-200 2.8 IS II and other lenses next. Anyone have any requests?
  7. Let me know if you're looking for a second crew member! I have a lot of experience with one or two man band style shooting and am interested in making docs and traveling... especially interested in South East Asia, even spent 10 days in central Asia shooting on and off this past December. Plus I'm a pretty good sound guy with my own kit though admittedly a much better camera guy. I'm from the wedding video industry too (shot around 50 this past year), but I'm transitioning out to focus more on commercial work and documentary stuff now. If you just cover travel and living expenses over there for me with 2 days of break to enjoy it then I'd gladly go out there for a week or two without worrying about taking into consideration daily rates and what not. I went to Nicaragua, China, and Cuba last year to shoot with at least Colombia (2x), El Salvador, Jamaica, and the Bahamas on the list for this year.
  8. @Andrew Reid any idea on when the next post will be? Very curious to see what you think. I have my GX85 on the way, won't have my hands on it till Friday. Also, do you know if the BMCC Nikon speedbooster works fine with it besides not communicating focal lengths and other electronic things? Just want to not scratch my sensor or speedbooster. I have an EF XL and a Nikon to BMCC along with a GH4 and would like to run them simultaneously while not having to shell out for another speedbooster until I find it reasonable to.
  9. Don't waste your time on the Zoom H5 shotgun capsule, it's terrible - I own one. An NTG4+ or NTG3 would be good for outdoor use. I bought the NTG4+ and while it's good enough with my Zoom H6, I wish I would have just gone with the NTG3.
  10. Thank you Andrew! I was hoping we would get a post on the GX85 from you soon and am glad that this isn't the last we'll see of it from you. I'm most likely going to order one in the next few days with your link, makes me wish I had a Canon Mount Sigma 18-35 (use Nikon) so I could easily take advantage of IBIS with it... will have to do something about that soon. What interests me most about this camera is of course the IBIS, but I'd like to see the benefits of it when paired with a gimbal like a Ronin M as the Ronin M doesn't correct for up and down bobbing motion while walking. Do you plan on looking into this? I don't see anyone else testing this. I understand you can turn off the correction for the pan axis too which would be useful for pairing with a gimbal. Also, the XL .64 works fine (mainly in terms of attachment) besides the usual soft edges w 18-35 and other aps-c lenses while in the 1080 mode? I still have my Nikon to BMCC adapter lying around which might find it's place on the gx85 until I decide it's worth it to buy another EF speedbooster as I'd like to use this alongside my GH4.
  11. Well, as a XL version owner I'm considering switching to the ultra. My XL version was delivered defective and needs to be returned... I was just going to exchange it, but am thinking otherwise. Besides that reason, it's very common for me to use the 2x crop 1080p mode which with the ultra you'll get some fairly heavy vignetting on the wide end of the Sigma 18-35 or a Tokina 11-16. If you're only using full frame lenses then I don't see a reason to go with the Ultra over the XL. I use the 1080p mode and 18-35 most of the time, especially with the BM Video Assist that should be coming soon that'll allow me to get 1080p 10 bit prores
  12. What a shame, upsetting NAB from Panasonic. No interchangeable lens camera and GH4 didn't get V-log or 2.35 guidelines! Most of us don't use actual anamorphic lenses, we would just like to have the guidelines as a reference even if we've been able to compose for it. URSA Minor 4.6K is the star of the show
  13. What are you hearing? What a tease. Is what you're hearing more exciting then a v-log picture profile?
