  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Xiaomi Mi10, 11 and 12 support RAW video with the motioncam app afaik. @kye
  5. 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.
  6. Guess I'm bound to now:) What's that fugly confused emoji for under my beautiful post? You are in trouble now. 😊
  7. Short film directed and written by Jessica Yu-Li Henwick who has starred in various big budget productions for cinema and tv, such as "Game of Thrones" or "Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery". She is also acting in the leading role. The film was shot pretty barebones on a Xiaomi 11 with a gimbal being put to use. Here is a very cool interview, talking about finding the right DP, why she shot on a phone and requirements to film without extra lenses or big accessories. Also about scheduling and preparing the shoot while being on set starring in "Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery" and where she drew inspiration from for her film. Great interview and insight about the filmmaker, her film and her process. I really enjoyed film, cinematography and image quality as well. The other film above my post looks equally appealing to me btw. So here are the article and interview with Jessica Yu-Li Henwick: https://directorsnotes.com/2023/02/11/jessica-yu-li-henwick-bus-girl/
  8. Just in terms of TC. About other differences I have been writing in this thread pretty extensively myself. 😂 F.i. did you know the S1H has a true S35 mode besides the Apsc one, whereas the S1 has only the latter? 🙂
  9. I meant regarding TC, if there was an advantage of the S1H over the S1. Are there any and which ones? I always thought it had to with giving or taking TC, being able to do both or not to. I know the other differences, I even (still) own both. 🙂 @IronFilm
  10. But the smallest braw or any kind of recorder-monitor is a 5inch biggie lumbing on that tiny cam. @kye With internal recording of braw and prores i would have been interested in it. With a top monteable 2.5 to 3 inch tilt screen designed for this camera, even moreso. Do that for a Bmmcc 4K and call it M4K, Blackmagic! Great naming btw. @mercer 🙂
  11. Isn't there any difference between the two? I thought there was an advantage of the S1H over the S1. On the one and only shoot with my S1 and TC in demand my S1 had a little tentacle box on top of it all the time, which the sound pro set up. I am so uneducated when it comes to TC. Sorry for my lack of insight but somehow I cannot push myself into learning about it so well. @IronFilm How about the GH5II?
  12. We've been pretty euphemistic in our reaction towards the quality of a lot of 60p posts. Some were insulting a master of cinematography or referring to people in underwear. This thread is a showcase of pampering gone wrong and learning and insights gone lost. @zlfan
  13. What's the difference between the S1 and S1H regarding timecode? @IronFilm Is the S1H more pro or truely pro in that regard? I seem to never really get my head around TC it seems.😊
  14. TC, full HDMI, internal NRaw and Prores, full sensor 4K60p, good battery life and no problems with overheating, with solid Ibis and AF, plus nice ergos and built, Z6/7/Z8 size, around 3000 Euro, that would make it a dream camera! Too good to be true or not? 🙂
  15. I really liked your other videos. In this one i enjoyed the backlight shots and the studio takes with the soft light. For the projector shots i would have lit foreground and background seperately for matters of control and effect. The outside shots would also benefit of from a more dedicated photographic approach. In the video they appear in a way a bit like ENG shots and would benefit from more in your face framing and composition, close, midshot, wides, front, profile, tracking, static, overhead, eye level, from down up, all more distinguishable, evoking strong visual interest, simple and to the point. Like in your other videos.😊 @Chrille
  16. Eva1 might look creamier than the S1H regarding sharpness due to a 100% video focused oplf. @IronFilmhas had some projects with an Eva I think. I imagine the color science to be nicer. But that's in my imagination. Youtube shows that people love the image they are getting out of the Eva but so say S1h users or BM lovers. One guy put it right inbetween S1H and Varicam with the latter giving a true high end image. S1H beats it handsdown in lowlight though from the comparisons I've seen.
  17. @Walter HI still own both, S1 and S1H. I bought the S1H as a replacement for the S1. I was not happy with the ergos and especially not with the gnarling mechanism of the tilt screen, though very robust but for too unpleasant to use. The S1H is a joy to hold and operate. The screen mechanism is awesome to operate and so useful. To have both, swivel and tilt is genius. Feels like a movie camera not like a system cam. It has true Super 35 in addition to Apsc mode, S1 doesn't. I didnt't compare the menues one on one but S1H feels way more forward, either by structure or by operation, not sure. It offers HD 100p and 120p in 10bit 200mbps h265. A Polish review channel on youtube tested the S1H with perfect downsampled HD resolution in S35 or Apsc mode, much better than the S1. It also offers Cine4K modes which the S1 does not. I really enjoy my S1H, whereas I didn't like to use my S1. S1 is a heck of a camera for the money and image, built quality is pro but I just didn't enjoy to use mine. S1H is in another league as a video camera though for me. I have so much fun using it. Timecode is another thing. But better ask @IronFilmabout that as he is a soundrecording pro and artist working with all cameras available for professional film productions. I love the top screen on the S1H, looks so much nicer than on the S1. I love looking at it. S1H is just a real marvel of a camera. Oh, it also has an optional tally frame when recording. I would not bother with 699 for an oplf but make myself a gift with a fantastic camera instead like I did, oplf included and all intra codecs as well. I will soon shoot 200mbps HD. I loved that mode on the GH5. @kyeDo I need to worry? Got the Rawlite Oplf and IRcut filter on my Bmmcc. Aka M2K 🙂
  18. There are plenty mirrorless cameras if not all, one can mount on a tripod. A tripod has nothing to do with image quality per se. That is not the reason why it is a valid choice just like handheld or tracking shots are. The image quality of handheld shots in Private Ryan is no different than the tripod shots in this film. Spielberg choices between the two had nothing to do with image quality. Maybe you mean something else but it is not all that appealing to me to often have to try to find out what you might actually mean. If your thesis is that a F3 betters most mirrorless cameras regarding color, I can comprehend to such a statement. Though I think a S1H can come very close and might better it in lit scenarios as I am not a great fan of its color under natural daylight, looking too sterile for my taste. I love Lumix cams in lit sets. Not talking about youtube style led colored light overload. Anything looks bad under those conditions.

    G7 in 2019

    I must add, that within limits of 709 gamma i liked the HD from the G7 better than the GH5, regarding color science for grading and textures, also within the limits of bitrate of around 25mbits.:)

    G7 in 2019

    Really nice edit on the teaser. @IronFilm Colors at display look soso imho. Andy Lee has been writing about a feature film in production which he dped with several G7 cameras. It was titled Pandora back then. I don't know if it got finished. G7 has the nicest HD image I have seen from Lumix Mft cameras, almost as high resolving as GH5 but with less edge sharpness. I imagine the GH5II providing the best HD image of all of them. If the G7 only had a 50mbit longop codec like the GH3. I had gotten some nice images out of it. Great color palette for grading. Btw I still have mine, not used as much as I would have liked too.:)
  21. I could imagine someone else behind this very recent alias. I would hope I am wrong. We had a member, well meaning and with real name, very energetic and with some difficulties staying calm about some of his quests and persisting on his suggestions, which were sometimes adventerous and sometimey beyond limits, such as mounting a 2/3 zoom on a Apsc camera. But he was never being rude or denouncing others such as greats of cinematography like Roger Deakins. To do the latter has been a low point of this forum. So my assumption should be and hopefully is wrong. Who knows by whom we have been kept busy in these akward ways.
  22. I was also intrigued by the reply mentioning the doctor and his nephew in the human body of one person.:) @sanveer But I assume someone else being our 60p afficiando. Well:)
  23. Thank you for your honest and vsluable post and glimpse into the hardships of an upcoming DOP @PPNSHopefully your hard work will pay off a big deal this year! I had a branch fall on my head when setting up a butterfly with the gaffer. Whenever i was being the gaffer i took great care of my lighting people. That accident made me decide to stop working on sets of narrative features in the low budget world in Germany for sure as most of the films made here are not dear to my heart at all. Wish you the best and good choices and instinct regarding projects.
  24. Awesome. I think the LX15 was put to fantastic use. The person is an artist imo.
  25. Some underwater macro marvel. Not bad for a little pocket cam. Upload is 1080p, so wandering if it was even filmed in 4K. So here the little Lumix LX10 for some underwater footage. I really like the framing and the cinematography as such. What do you think? @Davide DB 🙂
