  1. Hello guys we're having some lovely hot weather here in the UK at the moment. But because of this I recently got my camera out a small bag the bag size was roughly the same size as the camera not much breathing room. Sadly however it was left on and the body is very warm to the touch not warm like the camera was overheating but very warm. The screen also has blue and red pixels on it however after taking a picture they didn't show up on the picture. I put it in the fridge for a small while about 30 seconds to help cool it down. I did a pixel refresh and all the pixels see
  2. Hey guys thanks for the responses really appreciate them!
  3. Hey Guys! This could be a quick and short answer to mainly cover one simple lighting question. A noob 101 question most likely. I just watched Pain & Gain and I thought the colors were was just amazing. Intense orange & reddish skin. Really vibrant colors. Often using color contrast between blueish tones and greenish tones in the gym sequences to contrast against the skin. So I checked some b-roll out to see if they used gels to light some scenes to aid the grade etc etc, To see no surprise.. little to no color in the scene other than I guess just daylight 5600K kino/floresc
  4. Hello guys. So iv'e noticed this for a while now but finally decided to actually bring it up. I'm getting this dark streak effect only noticeable in dark areas with one hot light source. Seen on multiple different lenses and adapters and even noticeable when no adapters are in use. Mostly noticeable only in SLOG2 and video mode but can be soon with no picture profile and even in photo i think. And i can also recreate. When graded it's never really noticeable but damn, worried that it might be a defected sensor, or just a well documented artifact known with this series of camer
  5. Hey guys sorry for late reply. Really cool to hear your setups, rigs, gear you use. Makes my setup not always seem so overkill. Thanks for the replies guys +1
  6. Hello the EOSHD. A big portion of what i do is run and gun filmmaking (Behind the scenes/making of/FilmmakingMusicVideos) etc etc. And this often means (for me) I set my camera up on the floor out of way and trying to just be ready to film in a matter of 1-2 mins. Jumping from location to location, in and out of cars quickly, Ideally not having to sit there for 15-25 mins dismantling rigs and rebuilding rigs. ME + my A7RII + a Samyang VDSLR lens gives me tons of confidence that i get visually appealing shots, add a small rig on that with a top handle and shoulder mount i can ge
  7. Hello there forum. I was on a shoot recently and i noticed that as soon as a external monitor was plugged into my camera i lost the built in LCD and EVF view. I heard that if you record 1080p that wont happen, not tried though. But that sucked massively for me as like the LCD and EVF. -Is it possible i could run two monitors from a V mount Plate with dual HDMI outputs on an sony A7RII/A7SII Small HD 501 for me and a DP7 for the focus puller then daisy chain monitor to monitor >(DP7 to another DP7)? 3 monitors overall? DP7 have HDMI in & outs Thx Sam
  8. It's just testing in different environments such as interior and exterior trying to replicate similar skin tones and working with Slog footage to figure out how i'm going to be able to push it in post before i actually get into post. But really appreciate the reply's guys thanks!
  9. Hello guys, i'm trying to achieve hot warm skin tones like in Interstellar, transformers, the dark knight... all Hollywood movies really. similar to the orange and teal look. How does one get warm orange results on skin consistently in exterior shots and interior shots. Is it a mix between lighting,makeup,post? Iv'e done tests and gotten really neat results indoors. But over here in the UK it's cold, dark, and gloomy so getting any color in skin is really hard at the moment. It just looks... white. The attached file is also of a shot of a wardrobe test on interstellar. How is his skin tones
  10. Wow thanks guys really appreciate this helped me out a bunch (:
  11. Hello Guys, don't know much about different tripods iv'e had my good old CULLMANN photography tripod for over 6+ years now (no idea what make or model it is.. it's just a well built tripod to me :P) it's head is also ample for me most of the times as it's pretty smooth just never designed for film-making in mind if you know what i mean. But i'm looking for a good to great film-making tripod for around £100 however if there is a special fluid head tripod or tripod in general that people simply swear by then i'd like to hear about it even if it's £150+ A tripod that doesn't need tightening like
  12. 7D Mark II always looked very impressive. It's all a bit weird, i see no reason to stay with Sony for photography i simply dislike the way lightroom renders the colors and works with highlights with .ARW files i have to use a trial of capture one pro to get good color and ISO results and much better highlight control i kinda dislike the colors from sony in general but really i think i'm just bullshitting my self when i say that. Lenses too pricey and lack of adaptable lenses and again color and highlights especially ISO grain never looks as pleasing is me old Canon 60D. But that video though
  13. Thanks you for the time to read and reply. I got a commlite adapter instead to save all that money and i had big intentions to use canon glass 100% of the time, and iv'e tried a canon 70-200 f4 (bad af) 18-55 kit (bad af) 55-250 (bad af) 50mm f1.8 (No worky of course) Sigma 70-300mm (no worky) it got to a point were it just started feeling to unreliable. Iv'e heard great and also bad things also about the Metabones adapter as well. I ended up kinda just leaving EF glass out of the picture as i would love accuracy throughout the entire focal length especially at 200mm. Again just feels off to
  14. Hello there EOS forums. The following read will not be for the faint of heart or for the light readers. This will be aiming at people who wouldn't mind taken some time to help with a professional opinion. Trying to keep this short which as you can i failed miserably, iv'e been holding of on this post for quite a few weeks. I wanna say that i'm in love with my filmmaking/videography just a tad more than my photography but i still love to get into photography professionally before video in some sense, but anyway. About a month ago i upgraded from my 6 year old trusty canon 60D to a Sony A7RII p
  15. Hey guys i was a walking the streets 3 Days ago just with my Nifty Fifty (super lightweight setup) getting street shots on my new A7RII cheap lens i know but always gives fun results. I always noticed on a APS-C crop if the subject is 2-3 meters away the lens tends to give this noticeable less bokeh skew effects on the edges of the frame (usually pretty nice) Check the edges very slight skew effect on my canon 60D APS-C crop. https://drscdn.500px.org/photo/120318977/m%3D900/9811ed9b048440f01678b9b88c0b1a27 https://drscdn.500px.org/photo/120319029/m%3D900/bfd701b161a767280b91104a5a228e8a But wh
  16. Oh awesome, Might look into Nikon mounts Seems strange to rate a lens because of it's body's megapixels, thought a lens comparison site would have had more equal tests but i guess things change as the years go by. Thanks i kinda thought that the lower score on the charts meant that something was wrong with the lens on certain mounts you see. Much appreciated.
  17. Hello There guys i have a simple but important question to ask. Let's say i wanna buy a samyang 85mm t1.5, is it worth buying a E Mount base straight for my A7RII or an EF mount base than adapt that with the adapter. Iv'e seen that some lenses have a lower scores because of there mount (nikon,sony,canon) is this because when a lens is adapted from EF to E or the other way around, it get's reduced sharpness because it simply works better on EF fit. Curious if it's just best to keep the EF fit then adapt it to sony to guarantee the best optical performance? Or just buy an E mount glass to fit wi
  18. Hey guys so i noticed some pretty narley looking light leaks/flares in my footage using canon glass with a cheaper £58 meta bones adapter. thought hay they looks cool and guess it's a defect for buying a cheaper adapter but after looking it up it turns out people are having problems with even Official sony glass and it's a problem with mount it's self on the camera. http://www.amazon.co.uk/TOUGH-E-Mount-Fotodiox-Pro-Replacement/dp/B00STSBYXC/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1446501566&sr=1-1&keywords=The+TOUGH+E-Mount+LT+from+Fotodiox+Pro Curious if one of these really w
  19. Hello there. i can only imagine that this has been posted before, but do you reckon a firmware update could add Slog3 to the sony A7RII like it's video brother the A7SII? Or is it a game of it could happen... but it would hurt the A7SII and it's unique one of a kind special "Slog3" feature too much. Technically that's not impossible right?
