  1. Thanks for your reply. I really don’t understand why Panasonic do not try to fix it fast?? I think the advantage of S1h is to be used without any external recorder and ghosting issues are really a problem to deliver professional results...
  2. Hi everybody, does anyone have news about ghosting issues with the S1H? Is Panasonic concerned about it?
  3. Not completely tested how long I can run the bmpcc. I would say (first impression) with the canon grip with 2 LPE6n I can run it in raw video recording for 1 hour and 15min , probably more. Two LPE6n should correspond to 5 or 6 normal bmpcc batteries. The battery indicator on the bmpcc when I use this homemade grip is not accurate, it does not work properly. With the two canon batteries fully charged it displays 45% on the bmpcc screen and with one batterie Fully charged 23%. However , like I said with 44% (which corresponds to 100% with two batteries) I can easily record in raw more than an hour and 15min. I will take the bmpcc on a trip this weekend and see how it behaves. I let you know.
  4. Ok just tried it today: -canon grip (cheap Chinese one) I bought for 10 euros, it accepts two canon lpe6 batteries (I already have) -EN-EL6 dummy battery I ordered thru AliExpress for 7 euros. A little bit of work, I am really bad at electronic, it is really easy, just connect properly the wires + and -, use some tap and foam... I do not know why I did’nt do it before?? I can know use my beloved bmpcc as a runandgun camera with enough power and put it and out of my bag without having the power 12V wire on the side always annoying me.
  5. Thanks. be carefull I think 12V is too much thru the battery compartment. I just bought a used battery grip for canon 6D for 10 dollars. It works with 2 LPE6 battery. The grip with those batteries deliver 7.4V which is perfect to power the bmpcc with a dummy battery. I am going to modify it with the dummy battery to be able to have a battery grip for the pocket without using the 12V port on the side of the bmpcc. I will post some pictures. This is what I want to do for the bmpcc (old one) http://cheesycam.com/sony-a7s-powered-by-canon-5d-mark-ii-lp-e6-diy-modded-battery-grip/
  6. Hi everybody, I have a question I try to deal with, related to my Pocket (old one not the 4k) I have a juicebox battery which is great: http://juicebox.direct/product/jbmp-01/ However the bmpcc cable system is not convenient and I would like to use a dummy battery with my juicebox magic power. I found this: https://www.aliexpress.com/snapshot/0.html?spm=a2g0s.9042647.0.0.d51436fa7hlRvs&orderId=99088514035971&productId=32825839201 But the jukebox battery output 12V and this dummy battery is made for 9V. Is it gonna work? Thanks for your help.
  7. Hi everybody, does anaybody try the pocket with the Panasonic 30mm or 42,5mm? is the OIS working? thanks I am talking about the 30mm f2.8 macro OIS and the 42,5mm f1.7 OIS.
  8. Hi everybody, I am looking for an anker battery solution in order to charge my bmpcc. I use the bmpcc in run and gun, the anker will stay in my bag and I will charge the camera when It is in the bag. Previously people used the anker astro 2, nowadays it doesn't exist and I do not know which battery to buy. I presume it should output 12V- 0.84A max. However I do not understand the difference between anker astro and anker power core https://www.anker.com/products/taxons/107/Portable%20Chargers If someone can help me with that I would really appreciate. Thanks
  9. Thank you, I am gonna learn resolve and try to get the best I can in one software.
  10. Hi everybody, a friend just gave me a bmpcc because I want to try and learn raw editing and grading. I am used to FCPX (editing and grading) however I do not know yet resolve. I watched at many tutorials on internet and I am not sure of the best workflow. Many people use resolve, edit proxies, do the cut in FCPX or Premiere, back to resolve to grade and sometimes back to première to stabilize and add 2.35 lines. However I notice that now in resolve you can do your cut and even stabilize your footage.... so you do not need to use another software? am I right? is the best raw workflow to do everything (editing, grading, stabilizing) into resolve in 2016? thanks for your help
  11. Ok thank you anyway I will try to find an explanation to the resolution pop up menu. There is always the bug with the EVF, if you start recording with EVF you can't switch to monitor while filming, you have to stop and do another recording... ( not a problem for me)
  12. Thank you very much. thank you very much!!!! One last question in the pop menu I understand how to change the bitrate... no problem with that. But not sure to understand what the resolution is, for example if I choose DC to UHD means if I choose 24p DC in the samsung menu I will record in fact UHD. Thank you for your time.
  13. Ok in fact after going thru github and dpreview forum I am completely lost???? I fell really stupid but I can not understand how to do the hack? How and where do I found the zip file? Which hack do I have to install in order to increase the bitrate and have a kind of reliability? is it version 4.13 but I do not understand how to download the file ??? I am really sorry but if someone can take a minute to figure it our I would appreciate...
  14. Some questions before hacking the NX1.. Hi, I read all this thread and I'm about to hack the NX1 with vasile 4.13 release. (did not have time to hack before) However I am not sure to fully understand the way to do it know with the patch. I downloaded a file from github : nx-patch.zipv4.13 - OK OK now activates; 30 min limit auto-removed But on my mac it does not appear as a zip file but as a simple file called: nx-patch containing some some others staff... In the readme text it says I have to unzip something but do not have anything to unzip? So in order to hack it I just have to copy the nx-patch file on my SD card on follow instructions explained in the readme with bluetooth etc... Am I right?
  15. Password: stab Little test with the RX100 IV. Shot in HD at 24p shutter 50 (first 50 sec of the clip) and 60p shutter 125 (last minute of the clip) Stabilization in active intelligent mode. Slog 2 (trying to expose +2 stop when shooting) graded with film convert and some curves in fcpx with color finale. I shot just handheld without trying to be smooth or very painstaking. I have some focus issues but I did not use properly the auto and manual focus... I was focused on my exposure and did not look too much at my focus... will be better next time... The stabilization in mode active intelligent works pretty well in particular if you soot at 60p. I noticed that at 24p (HD) I have more wobble that at 60p, even if I do not slow down the 60p footage it looks better. The last minute of the clip is at 60p (shutter 125). I am really amazed with this little toy that I can always carry with me.
  16. Does anyone tried the voigtlander 10,5 mm f0,95 on bmpcc?
  17. Ok Thanks for all your advices. Gonna work with cine2/4 and cinema color... By the way kidzrevil really fan of what you achieve with the NX1 hack....
  18. In fact I want to be able to grade a bit with some curves and ovoiding the grain that I get when I choose slog2 and do not have a proper overexposed shot. I think I did not understand yet the difference in a7rII between gamma and color mode and which one is responsible for the increase of grain when you do not expose properly.
  19. Hi, still trying to get an image easier to expose than Slog2 but that I can grade a little bit. Trying to obtain a kind of washed image, I am trying on the a7rII: cine 2 with sgamut. Is that ok or I am doing something stupid...
  20. Ok thank you, this is approximately the way I do it. Is it better to be in spot metering to set my correct exposure? I also use my zebras at 100 to see what is clipping but some people told me to use it at 70 to expose skin tone...
  21. Hi, I am using extensively the A7RII for photos in video... I went thru the Andrew guide for video that helped me a lot. Actually I am shooting video with Andrew "trick": PP6 and what he explains....then I grade with color finale in fcpx (using curves.... and lut...). It works pretty good. However I would like to give one more try with Slog 2. After surfing on youtube and watching tons of videos I am really confused. From what I have seen I need to overexpose by three stops to get good result with SLOG 2 because of grain. WHAT IS A GOOD WAY TO DO IT without external recorder with an A7RII ???? If someone has a good practical method with A7RII it would be cool to share it. A7R II doesn't have zebra 40, do i have to be in spot metering and look at the metering but when I expose manually it goes just from -2 to +2???? how can I reach +3??? I am really confused....
  22. Hi, I am trying to decide which setup is the best to shoot a fimographic documentary. I need to be relatively small, lightweight and shoot handheld. I also want to shoot in a good codec (prores) but have the possibility to shoot some raw videos. I am a photographer and I just shoot (99% of the time) with a 35 mm lens (full frame). I mainly use a Leica M9. however I now also begin to be more involved in video. My second camera is an A7RII and I use it extensively for improving my video skills.... I color grade with color finale and davinci resolve it depends. I will have to shoot a documentary in 3 months but in more filmic way (I will not color grade but a professional will do it) so I need to shoot in prores in HD no need for 4K. I will shoot with one lens a 35 mm equivalent because it is the way I am use to frame in photography. I will not be able to light properly each shot just 50% of the time... My A7RII would be perfect : internal stab is enough for me, I use It in s 35 mode with a 24mm Leica R which gives me a 35mm equivalent, it is small and lightweight. The problem is the 8bit Xavc. With an atomos it will be bigger and the camera output 8 bit so not a good idea. I was thinking using a bmpcc with a 12 mm (slr magic or Olympus) and a kind of small portable rig but I am not sure of the handheld shooting. I know there is also the new bmmicro cinema camera with the video assist I could also use with a small rig. Or a bmcinema camera with a small rig... the urea mini is gonna be too big. I also think of using an OIS lenses for stabilization (12-35 panda for example) does everybody as an experience with a small handheld kit that works for documentary shooting?
  23. Yes Simon but I also find 6400 isos really good for video but in crop mod (S35) on the a7rII not in full frame. However I do not own the A7SII (just the a7rII) but you can go go 6400 isos full frame.
