  1. Well then HPX250 for me then. Small for the form factor and as pretty as a DVX100. 😊 Or a AG170 for the CCD magic. But I think I will resist. Will still try a TM700 some time, though not this year, I think. Appealing form factor and possibly a codec up to par with a Lumix G6. Too bad these palmcorders don't see modern 10bit successors. But I guess you're right, at the moment there doesn't seem to be a market for it. @philipd
  2. I still like my GX85 and even more than ever for what it is. I love to use it and pretty much everything about it. All i wish for is an alteration with 10 bit HLG and beefed up codec for HD. Will not occur though I assume. So GX85/9 are the last of their kind I think, unfortunately. Sony A6700 looks ugly in my eyes, OM1 the same. Omd Em10III has oversampled 4K afaik. GH5S is interesting, a somewhat puritanistic, practical, straight forward camera. Good alternative to the much bigger P4K.
  3. Browsing vintage cameras and some not so vintage cameras like the S1H I searched the comments section to reassure myself of my S1H purchase. πŸ™‚ I recognised a member of our forum and browsed his content finding a variety of awesome lumix material and beautifully filmed skating action. I came around this 8bit masterpiece, filmed with a GH4 and a G85. Awesome stuff! @Al Dolega So how do you like your S5II so far?:) Congrats on your awesome content, and the image you got out of the GH4 and G85! What profile did you use, lenes?:) Silly me asking, despite owning great other cameras with modern codecs. But these little cameras are so much fun to play around with and talk about. Still loving my GX85. I like the resolution but lack of oversharpness in this video, also the natural and beautiful color palette. Anyway, some 8bit Mft greatness:
  4. That is an exiting prospect to be shown off to us! @ac6000cw I know it is often a bit of a hassle to do. But if you come around and share some OM1 goodness with us that would be super nice. πŸ™‚ I will hopefully get around to treat us with some HD 100fps goodness from my S1H some time soon. I've seen some 100fps from the A73 and it looked pretty nice despite the puny codec. So I figure the S1H with its 10bit 200mbit codec will do pretty well.
  5. LX10 in TM700 body with 10bit 422 4K up to 60p would be perfect. @John Matthews I think small sized camcorders were used to be called palmcorders. So, yes, 10bit palmcorders with 2/3 or 1" sensors, HLG, NDs and with solid manual operating such as focus ring and physical buttons for the essential parameters like iso, aperture, shutter and color temperature. I still like the size of a HPX171, which is still much smaller than an EX1 and kind of a pretty camera like the legendary DVX100. So will try that one some time. Mike Krumlauf is always fun to listen to. Such an old school guy with a love for cameras and an impressive mullet. πŸ™‚ @Matt Kieley
  6. I've seen Gh1 videos which impressed me a big deal color wise. I had posted one a few years ago. But textures were never that appealing to me because of the codec. G6 was so much better in that regard. From cameras i used myself I was the least happy with motion when footage was too sharp as it was with my S1 or when codec was not up to par like on a G6 in lowlight. I love my Bmpcc and Bmmcc for colour and motion. My Sony PMW F3 looked great, judging from my own test footage and the clips which were still on the card when I bought it. Ikonoskop is a camera i always wanted to try. The Coney Island video on vimeo impressed very much back then. Colors, motion, plasticity, setting and summer grooves did their thing but colors were really magical. It is not a S16 but a 16mm camera iirc.
  7. I think I gonna try out some 3 x 1/3" CCD magic some time with a Panasonic HPX 171 or 151, both writing to cards, p2 cards and 8bit 422 100mbit DvcproHD the former, sd and 8bit 420 25mbit Avchd the latter. They would function as a Dvx100 Andromeda substitute:) @Matt Kieley Both are sporting less than perfect 1080p resolution and higher framerates at 50/60p in 720p or 1080i. For best image quality of the bunch it would be a HPX250 with perfect 1080p even at 50/60p, also sporting a 3 x 1/3" sensor design plus 10bit 100mbit 422. No CCD magic though. 3 x CCD and perfect HD with high bit rates comes in big shoulder cameras only. But then some 2/3" calibers. And a Varicam among them. Would like to find out which one is the smallest of these biggies. This thread has the potential for a perfect nerd cave. Great place to be. πŸ™‚
  8. TM700 should be dirt cheap and tons of fun. I would love a compact 3 sensor 2/3" or one sensor 1 inch camera with a good 422 codec. Both won't materialize I assume, the former not by any margin at all. Anyway, 3 1/4" fun and HD beauty with the TM700. A bit green but still a well done video:
  9. Indeed, with the cable sticking to the side the FP is looking pretty cumbersome. 45min is kinda like Bmpcc territory. I tested mine with some batteries for the Nikon J and V cameras btw. Since the pocket has the problem of emptying the battery in standby heavily I was imagining the FP to be a valid alternative for HD 12 bit internal. But I haven't read all that great things about it in HD regarding textures iirc. I've got my 5D3 for 8 or so months now and have used only for some street photography. It was fun with a nifty fifty plastic fantastic. Loud and clunky.:) Would love to use it for filming some cinema veritΓ© but for now only my Bmpcc and Bmmcc have been tested as my only Raw capable cameras. I shared one of the videos here last summer.
  10. FP 4K Raw looking clean is if course no slouch but I trust you on liking the 5D3 Raw better.:) How do you like handling the Sigma, battery life, screen etc compared to the 5D3? @mercer
  11. Oh maaaan, I thought my post would put an interested smile on your face. But no:(πŸ˜ͺ The comments of Cion owners were very enthusiastic about about this new attempt by David Bross. Juan is well known of course. Juan himself has done a post about his p4k to log c lut on Eoshd.
  12. I just reread this thread. The Aja Cion has been mentioned before by @IronFilm 😊 The new approach regarding color treatment in post shows much better highlight rolloff. In his second video David Bross shows sample footage and the math behind his approach. The download link for the plugin is in the description of the third video.
  13. Haven't thought about that. @mercer πŸ™‚ How do you like the output and experience compared to the 5DIII? Eos M50 would also be a fun little raw cam. Looking forward to that one. It has a Digic8 processor just like the Eos R. @Andrew Reid
  14. One of the people from magic lantern figured that the bandwidth on the 7D MKII might also allow for DCI 4K Raw 12bit. That would be pretty sweet. So far they tested it for 1984x1068, 14bits 24p. Looking forward to the upcoming news. One testclip of the og EOS R recording 1080p 30p raw is online. Just check the slashcam website yourself with autotranslate.:) The Digi 8 processor of the EOS R is also powering the EOS M50. https://www.slashcam.de/news/single/Erstmals-Magic-Lantern-RAW-auf-EOS-R-mit-Digic-8-a-18410.html
  15. @ghostwind page 60p then. Someone with an appetite for "better" entertainment will then demand 120p. So page 120.😊
  16. G9 has a super nice S16 mode like the GH5 and it's a classic I would love to try. Maybe sell all my stuff except my BMs and F3 and get a G9 for a good price. Though the EM1II is a pretty camera!
  17. Aja Cion, just sayin. Not many Aja Cion owners here I think.:) Protect your highlights is a rule. But the image can be very lovely. Global shutter btw!:) This DP is offering some very nice color science and rolloff, looking promising. What do you think @kye and all of you?:) The video consists of three parts with a plugin for download. So there are still super cool youtubers around.:) cheers
  18. It has a S16 size sensor, right? @fuzzynormal I think the telelens might work in mcpro24fps, at least it does on the M10/11Pro afaik. The 12 Ultra is still pretty expensive.
  19. You can head over to german cult testing site and check the news via some auto translate. Magic Lantern also got into the 7D MK2!
  20. Back then I used a Hlg to Vlog conversion lut from Sage who created the emotive luts for arri color and rolloff for Vlog and went on from there. I really liked how Hlg responded in Grading, both on the GH5 and the S1.
  21. I really enjoyed your material and quality you achieved as a dp. The editing imo does not show that to the fullest potential. Editing reels is a pretty thing and art by itself, of course. Your cinematography still shines through. @PPNS
  22. Anyone really loving the colour they are getting from their S line cameras? I liked the results filming in HLG better than in VLog, which I got after grading.
  23. Xiaomi Mi10, 11 and 12 support RAW video with the motioncam app afaik. @kye
  24. I assume they shot in 8bit with the internal video app, since the film was sponsored by xiaomi. It does 10bit Log / hlg in high bitrate, with the Mcpro24fps app afaik.
  25. Guess I'm bound to now:) What's that fugly confused emoji for under my beautiful post? You are in trouble now. 😊
