  1. 4K on the GX85 slamdunks any HD AVCHD flavour on it, especially the brittle HD 60p. Also, the 24 to 30p HD on the GX85 is by far not as nice as on the G6 and G7, which both have a very smooth but high resolving HD. GX85 HD is brittle by comparison. What article btw?:)
  2. Quiet possibly. Gerald Undone has done the comparision for noice reduction and the FX30 had performed nice grain in that test, compared to the mushyness of the FF FX3. Battery life around 90min of video shooting, going by the tests on youtube, which puts it in GH6 territory. 120p UHD has MFT width, though not oversampled like GH6. It seems kinda like a GH6 with different colour science, no anamporphic modes, but similar video quality and possibly better lowlight, though colour integrety of the GH6 in lowlight and Dual Gain is pretty amazing. Going by the tests, that is.:) From my own experience, liking the 8bit HD FS700 image wise, the FX30 would be a fun camera indeed. If it had mechanical shutter it would be indeed an X factor. Rolling shutter of around 15ms is good enough for me for video, coming from filming with similar readouts from a rented GH5 and lately from my own BMMCC. The rolling shutter of 22ms from my S1 in FF mode would be my personal limit though. I shot some lovely handheld stuff with my G6 which has a 25ms+ RS, so all with a grain of salt. Love the body design too, more than the bulky GH6. So yes, some X factor definately. But image quality has to be shown. Codec quality also. Both fantastic on the GH6. So we will see.🙂
  3. I am very sorry to read your words. I wish you the best and your family as well, to be able to find some comfort somehow and to keep doing what you love. It is important that you know that you have friends in such times! My dearest thoughts are with you and your family.
  4. Tasty treats. Also love the audio, voice performance and writing. And the bold day for night move.😊 @mercer
  5. Same, my friend, same thing, nice to hear from you. Coffee, cam, talk no do. Would be sweet. OG Bmpcc, was lusting over it too. But with the Bmmcc finally being equipped with the 3.5 inch Ikan plus Viewfinderloupe, I might get over it.:) Did some fun filming yesterday at Kanzleramt, filming my friends taking application picturs.:) Awesome blue and all of the sudden golden hour yesterday. Got it all in glorious Fairchild colours! So, let´s groove. Next week would be groovy f.i. 🙂
  6. So, some rigging goodness from last week. The baseplate and rods were in a package with a Gh4 i just got. Also in the package were different Cmount adapters and finally some which fit my Zeiss Tevidons. After owning the Tevidons for three years and owning a Bmmcc for a year now, I can finally achieve infinity focus. Yeah! So here is my beauty with a 10mm Zeiss Tevidon, on a pistol grip, which also was in the Gh4 package. Now, @webrunner5 , Don, dear friend I now own a Gh4 after you got your Gh5:) Here the pics with and without the BMVA. I just got the tiny Ikan v35 which is cute but drains battery after being switched off.😂
  7. I recently acquired a Canon TV16 6mm fixed focus lens. i "challenged" myself filming without a monitor, cuz i liked the supertinyness of my bmmcc without a monitor. I later recognized, it vignettes up to 1.33x zooming in on davinci in that case. But footage was fun and cool.:) @hansel I'm in Berlin too. Let's film some cinema verité vignettes together with cam and coffee. Sony Pmw f3, bmmcc and nice nerdy gadgets at hand.:)

    Panasonic GH6

    I would love to hear more about image quality, also compared to the Lumix S line. Lowlight and absolute dynamic range is a stellar feat of the S line. But cameras like bmmcc, bmcc have great motion, color, awesome color response i grading. Motion with my bmmcc looks so beautiful, camera motion is top notch. Imagewise I often prefer my bmmcc over my S1, despite its much, much weaker lowlight and HD only compared to the 4k/6k S1. Would to hear more from @deezid how well gh6 fares compared to the Lumix S line. He was a great fan of the artefact free cinema worthy image of the full frame Panasonic cameras. And he didnt love the internal image from the Fuji xh2s. Also @hyalinejim would love to hear your observations. Still a great fan of your gh5 observations. @kye like you i am seeing these kinda cameras as MF beauties. Side note I like the af for photo since my gf1. I got the blazingly fast 14mm now. Fun tiny lens, which was part of a large Gh4 package, with many Cmount lenes and adpaters snd more. I couldnt resist. 🙂 And Gh6 feels growingly tempting from film iq and usuabilty poinf of view. Btw gh6 even betters gh5s in lowlight, holds onto resolution and colour much better, as you can check out on youtube. What i would like to see: S16 crop mode like the Gh5 has, Hd full sensor modes, S16 4to3 mode with full s16 width, 16 and 2/3 inch modes. Thank you! 🙂
  9. Such subtle differences. I still liked the F3 best out of the three cameras.
  10. 6K open gate in 24p and 5.9K 16:9 up to 30p. The 10bit codecs, both 422 h264 and 420 h265 are pretty impressive regarding image quality. @Nikkor
  11. Gimbal like stabilization looks very, very good. Best IBIS in town by far, almost no wobbly edges. Video wise an original Bmpcc and other mft cameras would look more appealing to me. Would be interesting to test the original file in grading for sure. So thanks for uploading on vimeo! @markr041
  12. S1 had a firmware update for cameras with the paid VLog key, giving it 4K 60p, 10bit, h265 in S35/ APS-C, in 16:9 and anamorphic modes. Reputed German test site slashcam has tested for class leading latitude in the S1. In its h264 10bit modes the latitude in the shadows coming from the S1 is very impressive, even slightly better than the R5 in Raw when pushed to the dumbest extremes. It is providing a great ratio between image quality and file size. Great tip on the button setup for full frame and APS-C! Thanks, will try that on my S1!
  13. S1 3:2 6K is over the entire sensor and restricted to 24p. It also offers Full Frame 6K 16:9 up to 30p. Besides that, both S1 and S1R offer a 6K (5K!) photo mode in 30p. S1R 5K mode is S35 format and up to 30p. All modes are 10bit h265 420 200mbps. S1 also has the super strong 10bit 422 codec up its sleeve, which offers much better quality in grading. But the 8bit variante is no slouch neither in 709 formats.
  14. To me IBIS is to emulate the movement of a heavy camera like it would be sitting on the shoulder. To work a heavy camera handheld from the shoulder means having a sufficient EVF rigged and good balance of the whole setup. That neither comes easy nor cheap. To have the cheapest way of 10bit combined with the heavy camera look would demand a Sony F3 or FS700 with an external recorder plus an EVF plus balancing all of that out, plus powering. Or shell out a some more money for a used Sony F5. So IBIS in my S1 saves me from having to do that. And it saves me from having to carry a lot of weight for small lower paid shoots. 10bit implentation in the S1 and practical absence of noise mushyness (NR) gives me a high quality image. Fs700 internal is a great 8bit cam btw. It´s Slog implementation is worthy to be used under sufficient light. A7S and the MK2 on the other hand have a gruesome Slog implementation regarding colour, coming from my experience. It should be tested before using it, that´s for sure. For a start I totally support the notion of practicing without IBIS and without Log to get immediate results without "unthougthful shotdesign made by IBIS" and without grading hell and without the mentality "fix it in post". Resulting in more thoughts ahead of shooting and sofore more thoughtful filming, less "fixing it in post", less dull shots and films.
  15. I remember that test @QuickHitRecord Cool to realise now that you did this test.:) Are you sure it is the iscomorphot 8 1.5x and not the isco anamorphot 8 1.5x? The iscomorphot 8 is the single focus solution, seen left on Andrews picture above, the isco anamorphot 8 is the fixed focus one with much worse performance. Tito has tested both of them. Hopefully I get to rig mine some time soon. I got two of them for setting them up with two focal lengths. Some time soon.:) Haha @Justin Bacle has even commented on it under Titos video.:)
  16. Well. Cheek in tongue comments above. Don is my friend. I like his comments a big deal. He was not over eagerly providing more posts than anyone else does. There are many examples of various forum friends focussing on their mantras. I call my own name with my own posting obsessions. At the same time I do recognize my specific contributions as well. We all were best meaning for this forum. Now that it takes on an exiting momentum again, we won´t worry no more but be happy to see this place grow and florish even more.
  17. I second BTM´s suggestion of an EF-L adapter for OIS Canon lenses. One specific example: the native 24 105 in manual focus is not stepless, meaning jerky mini steps while focussing by hand. The Canon EF L 24 105 has a nice though a bit short manual focus which can override its hardish stops. It is stepless and makes manual focus even possible with a wireless focus system. It is also much nicer to touch. My native 24 105 L sits in the closet. Otherwise nice lens though but that stepping phenomenon in manual focus makes it not really enjoyable to me. Thinking about getting the Canon L for my speedboosted FS700. You can get one for as low as 300EUR on the used market.
  18. A few pinned threads might still be a good idea imo, like the legendary lenses thread, 5d3 raw and such. The core ideas of the current spirit of the forum and its owner. Not more than 7 i'd say, like 7 wonders of the world.:)
  19. Dear Don, I promise now to do that in September. Might be in internal Slog, since i am too stingy to replace my ripped mini sdi to sdi cable. 30eur, these suckers!:) Anyway, back to topic, what astonishes me a big deal are the colours in the Taiwan shorts and beautiful compositions. Perfect lensing with the 85 Zeiss and the 35 FD. I always read the comments on vimeo.:)
  20. Exactely, Andrew. It's the Iscomorphot 8 which is single focus. There is an Isco anamorphot 8 which is fixed focus. That's what I'm planning on doing, to use it with my Tevidons on my Bmmcc. S16 should be the perfect format for it. Tito has tested both of them in S35 crop on an A7S II, which it covers but with super soft edges. I still have troubles adapting my Tevidons as the Tevidon to C-mount adapter does not screw deep enough into the C-mount to Mft adapter. My only Tevidon i get mounted is the 35mm to my S1. Awesome lens btw, covering S35 crop!
  21. @FHDcrew S1 and S5 are IQ monsters. This thread and the S5 thread document that very well. XT3 is nice from what i see and read. But the S series is in another league. Latitude of internal codec is same as R5 in Raw, even slightly better, as tested by slashcam. Get a used S1 with the Vlog update, if full hdmi is important to you. Or get a S5, which has the awesome form factor of a GH5 and Vlog already preinstalled. Browsing the threads with some coffee or french fries will guarantee you a great entertaining read, as many of Eoshd threads do. I have my Eoshd eating and reading rituals all the time. Scrambled eggs with grilled tomatoes, hmm:)
  22. I highly recommed to any S1 owner to shell out the 200USD for the VLog update. It also includes the great 150mbit 422 10bit 4K modes, 100mbit 10bit HD modes plus 4K 60p 10bit in S35mode, also full sensor open gate true 6K mode. The photomode has less resolution than the full sensor open gate mode, something between FF and S35. So go ahead and treat yourself with the best and obligatory update for your camera, making it a true indy cinema camera powerhouse and music video dream camera! Without the update S1 does not offer 422 nor its awesome codecs nor modes, which mentioned above, open gate included. cheers
  23. Great lensing, 50 on S35 with an anamorphot looking sweet. Good old 5D2 shines even in 720p for some S16 emulation. I plan on coupling it with a Tevidon 25mm and use it on my BMMCC. I´m just a lazy and stingy cat when it comes to rigging and buying rigging parts.:)
