  1. What other mode besides manual matters when shooting video on a full frame? It's a non-issue but I understand the frustration. The cripple hammer definitely there, why go from 30 on the R to 20 Mpix on the R6?! Shit makes no sense. Got the R5. For hybrid shooting at events it's perfect. For shooting stills and as a C video cam on set its good. The one thing really pissing me off right now is the wobble on the IBIS. I feel it is too severe when shooting wide. As a hybrid shooter, this was a major selling point since I wnat to get hand held clips on the 15-35 at events. Everything else I can live with as I am using it mainly for stills with occasional video clips.
  2. Use case for Alexa = on set with a crew, use case for an SLR = 1 person, running and gunning.
  3. I agree, should have some sinks there to mitigate. It would have made a dent in the short record times however, the weather sealed form factor combined with Digic X still not conducive for intensive processing. Put your computer in a plastic bag with no active cooling, only sinks and see how far you get.
  4. Exactly! Weather sealed form factor not suitable for high quality capture. Are they weather sealed?
  5. Moore’s law has been historically true. However, what I’m seeing in the computer world for “processing” power (as a network tech), only solution has been more cores and multi-threads. Speeds remain about the same. PCs these days are running hot af and power requirements have gone up as well (applies to latest and greatest). After a gen or two I do see power draw and heat go down. Don’t know full details of digic X but if it’s anything like what I’m seeing on the computer side then this all makes sense. Still buying this camera, I’m a fan of Canon color and a hybrid shooter.
  6. Cooling a weather sealed body with a powerful processor, it’s almost an oxymoron. Although processors have gotten more powerful, energy requirements and heat have gone up with it. Until processors become more efficient and use less energy, this form factor will continue to not make any sense for power hungry codecs.
  7. Lmfao. BBC is impartial?! That’s a real knee slapper. Quit your Trump shit posting and stick to cameras. Love this site, please don’t ruin it. As for Apple, tax laws have made it favorable for them to repatriate cash and expand: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cnbc.com/amp/2018/04/30/apples-plan-to-repatriate-285-billion-could-be-a-boost-for-investors.html Free trade, trade imbalances, central banking are bad for the world. They centralize wealth, debase currencies and cheapen labor. Trump (but really the American system) getting attacked for attacking their system, the Anglo-Dutch liberal financial system. Lots of propaganda out there. Mind you Obama made it legal when he repealed the Smith act. Trump will win in the end, has the backing of the military, it’s really CIA vs NSA duking it out. Let’s focus on what we love to do cause in the end our voice is but a piss in the wind.
  8. Had many failed attempts to log in so that I can say one thing, FUCK ADOBE! My timelines constantly crash and do not play. A lot of times I have to revert to CS6 using XMLs. This issue always has to do with using nested sequences. I tried getting help from their customer support and forum but after a few days, I gave up. Also, LIGHTROOM! WTF! It takes what seems like forever to render an image to begin to edit. When I edit in Bridge, it renders pretty quickly. I have tried modifying preferences and import settings and nothing resolves lag issues.
  9. I agree that the 80D is WAAAAAY overpriced however, the softness doesn't really bother me. Actually, at least for doc or short film work, a super sharp image bothers me for some reason. At this price point, and time, at least give us LOG or 10 bit hdmi output.
  10. Would rather the focus be in dynamic range, super 35 sensor, color and 10bit or raw output than 6k.
  11. Man, had too much time on my hands last night, had to resurect this old ass thread. No doubt it's an increase in resolution. An improvement though? I guess it is, albeit an unnecessary one for consumers. For acquisition its amazing! TRUST ME though, know lots of people working at networks, NO ONE is planning on broadcasting in 4k any time this decade. Nat Geo shows will for sure look great in 4k detail, I'm sure you will be able to stream it in all its compressed glory somewhere. 4k cinema in my home though, on my TV 10 or 15 feet away is another story. Don't mind it in the theater though cause it's a big ass screen I am typically 30-50 ft away. Totally agree with you, story is KING! It's weird though, I still get people asking me for DVD's in SD!
  12. I don't know if 1080 cams will be obsolete though, its great for editing, reframing, zooms but don't think TV will be delivering 4k programming anytime soon. They just spent millions upgrading to HD and that took years and years of logistics. Nat Geo films I can see 4k working but movies and regular TV, I find that all the detail bothers me for some reason, it doesn't seem natural. I don't think I would ever buy a 4k TV...... http://www.cnet.com/news/why-ultra-hd-4k-tvs-are-still-stupid/
  13. B+H just put up a used (10 out of 10 condition) c100 MARK II. I assume it was some sort of return. It was $4000 with the Ninja. I had to do it! Looks like FS5 high frame rates will have to wait and I will be using Twixtor when needed for now. Regardless though, 60p slo-mo for a music video where vocals are present is plenty. I am kind of bumbed though, the electronic ND on the FS5 is sexy but on the other hand, it would of been $2200 more with the metabones.
  14. That's right, that is a cool feature. Especially to avoid follow focusing on non-cinema lenses. Been manually doing it on the 5diii would love to have that but not sure I "need" it. These are tuff decisions for us peasant folk who can't afford it all.
  15. I am starting to think I should just buy the C100 mark I for events and weddings and save my money for the FS5 for music videos. Does anyone notice any difference in the C100 vs C100 mark ii in terms of quality after color correction? They look very similar to me with perhaps the Mark ii edging out slightly better detail.
  16. I agree with the sharpness part. I almost want to go for the c100 mark 1 because its softer but yet looks pleasing (and not in a 5d kind of way). If it had the mark ii's color and 60p I would much rather go for the C100.1.
  17. Andrew, if I do go with an FS5, what adapter do you recommend? I keep hearing horror stories about the metabones. I have it for the GH4 but Sony users seem to have more issues. Also, have you ever tried matching color with FS5 to a GH4 or 5diii? I imagine it wouldn't be perfect but I am wondering how close.
  18. Yeah, that Sigma camera has an organic look to it.
  19. That is what I thought I asked the guy at Canon, does the C100MKII scale down from a 4k image to produce a 1080 image. His exact words were, "no, there is no 4k hardware at all inside the camera." Regardless, at $4600 with Ninja, do you think the C100mkII a good buy? I really want to like the FS5 but something inside of me keeps telling me to go with Canon color. Especially since my B cams are a GH4 and a 60d, 5diii.
