    Indeed, there are quite a few troubling signs when it comes to AI and the way it will be used in the future. To me, there is a lot of promise in AI as long as it's used as merely a TOOL or aid to the person. It's disappointing, but not at all surprising, that it is being viewed as a replacement for the person completely.

    Never abandon cash for that reason. If they try to forbid cash money, we have to vote for a different goverment. Apple pay, yikes. Only if you give the all of us beautiful escape luxury island and later a starship to a better unpoluted planet. Not happening. Free speech becomes very dangerous, to be exposed to these data hungry AIs btw.

  2. I love this point of yours, Andrew. AI killing the most enjoyable jobs now, making joyful acitivities to earn money impossible. To be able to proceed, means making the AI more and more powerful, self empowerment is empowering the AI even more that way, as AI will be fed with data from more and more human acitivity.

    Alternative is to forbid it in certain fields, like a ban on nuclear weapons.

  3. We will see, if CLog 3 on the R8 looks anything like Clog3 on the now old C300MKII, which in Cine 4K has an impressive image, UHD, 2K, HD not so much due to mushy codec in lowlight.

    Colours and gradeablility of the C300MKII still beats an S1H imho in natural light. Lit sets is something the lowlight monsters of the S series really shine though. They don´t need much of it, but without it the mostly look dull.

    Anyway, so far, Canon users on this forum have seemed not to be in love with the late 10bit Canon hybrids, except the R5 for its RAW image.

  4. Feeding the devil so it can unfold, means, it´s still the devil. A bully thief and murderer. No admiration for that. Elton Murks is the ultimate murks man, hyper privilged narcist. Him and the other narcists already buying islands, bunkers and shit to survive the ai shit they started. ai is stupid. no matter what it will be able to process and spit out. The term white privileged cis man really makes sense in this regard. No one seems to care. Shame.

  5. Micro HDMI, no IBIS. No external RAW as Emanuel just stated. The latter via micro HDMI would not have been so great to deal with anyway.

    4K60p FF vs Lumix S5 II S35 4K60 is great to have, though might be too little for Canon due to lack of IBIS, micro HDMI and potential overheating at 4K60p.

    Canon stating, 4K60 can be limited by hot operating temperatures, as german test site slashcam is citing.

    Best value for my uses would be a S5 II. But not interested in new purchases. If I keep my S1, that will still be plenty in regards of a hybrid cam.

  6. Maybe our friend meant, a piece with running time of 2min max.:)

    But see this, one of the coolest F3 posters from the last three years, leaves the F3 behind. So grab a coffee or hot chocolate or tea and some tasty treat like omelette, with eggs from organic farming, grilled tomatoes and onions, and get ready the rollercoaster of emotions. 😥



  7. Awesome write up, thanks! This is what has been great about this forum. Thank you for your generous contribution. @Maxbrand Interesting enough to me that I assumed you filmed this with the FX6. Don´t know exactely why. But usually it´s the modern look I am associating with the Sony powerhouse. These Asteras are really something. But we all know that.:) Still love the trailer:)

  8. Neither do I agree against great autofocus:) I would love a 1inch 10bit, 2x T2.2 lens, with great ergos, great "manual AF", that for under 1100EUR. PDAF with great battery life and image. Pixel perfect HD up to 100p would be enough, 4K up to 30p. Great image means, GH5 quality is perfect, with own luts and with GH5 MKII's absence of sharpening.

  9. I agree

    My opinion: colors great; stabilization really good, over sharpened. Low-light surprisingly good.

    Thank you for your test videos. I agree, judging from your videos. Sharpening, noise reduction and low bitrate are the same flaws, as ever before unfortunately. Colours are spiffy.🙂 Still, I think a non flag ship would be good for saving some money:)

    Btw, here is a go pro and some spiffy content done with it. Watched the first part and wholeheartedly enjoyed, image as well, despite being mushy by closer inspection. Like the ooc colour.



    What´s the best video smartphone for under 300 or under 250 in your opinion used or new?

    best and cheers @markr041

  10. I second that @John Matthews
    But much more than that I would love a GX cam with GH5 goodies but without the pink blotchyness in Vlog under certain conditions and skin. LX100 seems cool as a concept but in reality a fly by wire lens does not need to be spoiled by 10bit prowess giving us only 80% of the sensor estate in a though compact but hardly pocketable body. Too many compromises so far. For the 1 inch line like the LX15 it would perfect to have 10bit in that kinda truly pocketable body. Though the lens is hardly covering the whole sensor, at least at the wide end it is vignetting with hard cut edges plus bending and blurring in photo Raw. FZ line, heck yeah, S16 sensor size, 28- 200 T2.8 lens, lens with hard stops for manual focus with PDAF, 12+ MP Dual Gain sensor, 10bit, NDs, timecode, SDI. But nobody would buy that thing, because it would be too expensive and too video centered plus "only" S16. Without the other goodies i wouldn't need 10bit. FZ2000 is still more than 600 EU on the second market. So GX line and LX15 successor, yes please!:)

  11. Hey Rinad! @Rinad Amir
    35mm, i see:) You dropped two super hot infos on two obscure and legendary zoom lenses. The Konica 35 to 100 2.8 and the Zeiss 40-120 2.8. Just sayin thanks again and hello.:) I got three of the Konicas because of you, one beat up but splendid image though with zoom creep, one perfect in all regards. 

    Anyway. I loved 28 on boosted mft with crop 1.4 of FF. So I take the 28. I grab the tiny Canon nFD 2.8. Love that lens. Maybe I got a superiour sample. Mine is just splendid.

  12. I built a set lut for an arri amira project. it has a nice look to it under uv, ir and various other outdoor lighting situations. Now I have been using my own flashy lut for other projects with Mavo LF and Lumix S Vlog material and it is neither accurate nor keeps colours intact. But interesting enough desaturating before and after the grading pipeline gives it back its integrety. Color correction within the node workflow gives it back its plausibility, keeping character and beauty, which this lut was built for as well. That in 70% of the cases. For 8bit Slog2 on the FS700 it did not work well at all.:) Oversaturated reds and blues was the problem.

    I did a handcurve once for SLog2 material, which beat everything I was able to achieve with the official lut or CST. So I am always open for different ways.

    What do you mean by curve before Gamut? Do you mean a separate gamma transform and a separate gamut tranform? How do you do that? @hyalinejim Awesome post btw. Thank you!
