    Cool. Midtone contrast is also a thing one can apply after a succesful grade to milk the cow a bit more. After a long day of grading these little things are a beautiful gratification. Thanks for posting!

    Was close to buying one, with the pocket speedbooster, halfcage and 2x128 GB SDs. I sold for little over 500bucks. Crazy, I didnt bid in the end! But still looking for a BMCC mft package or good deals on FS700s. Fancying a F3 package with rigging and loads of extras for super low money!

    PannySVHS reacted to fuzzynormal in Oscars cinematography award to be presented during toilet break, with adverts shown in its place   
    I wish they'd just embrace their cinema snobbishness and be wonky about the craft/industry, but whatever.  It's a friggin' awards show.  Even when I go to "Oscar Parties" I tune it out and just chat with friends.  It's total shit show from top to bottom regardless.  As Andrew says, it's there to drive revenue.  Anyone that hasn't caught on to that reality yet and thinks it's some sort of artistic endeavor, god bless your sweet soul you beautiful butterfly.
    Yes, it's virtue signaling.  And, yes, it's been that way forever.  Anyone even remotely know about most of the "best" Academy films from the 40's or 50's?  Nah, 'kuz they're mostly preachy Hollywood treatments of social themes.  Decent movies, some, but mostly just industry fodder.
    So, same complaint, new generation.
    In the meantime, people like my colleagues out here in the SoCal desert are doing our part by trying to make our film festival a destination for cinematographers.  Point is, there's always legitimate platforms for the nerdier side of filmmaking.  If you're really into it, just go look for it.
    Expecting a Hollywood glamour show to be something it's not is odd.  It's like complaining about watching a baseball game...or, I guess, cricket.  You should really know what you're getting into and accept it or reject it for what it is.

    It depends on more than just the codec specs so it's tricky to answer that especially as I don't yet have an S1 to compare to the EOS R.
    It depends also on what aspects of the image you are measuring. I'd expect for instance 10bit to have an advantage in dynamic range but ALL-I would give an advantage in motion cadence. Tricky to say what is "overall" the most cinematic.

    Yes, that’s true... IBIS does add to the equation. That Raw/IBIS combo could make a great home for my 35mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.4 ai-s lenses. 
    I wish Nikon had more of a timeline for when the Raw output would be released.

    Still got my OG Pocket & all I can say is forget RAW, simply because ProRes HQ has all the DR you'll ever need - RAW also produces way too much M&A & noise, whilst I've never seen in it in PRHQ. Also the highlight roll off is lovely, even if you clip it slightly & I've had to do that a few times in the past - no complaints.
    It does get hot - i've burnt my finger on the metal casing before, but it was about +30 degrees when I that happened!
    Make sure you've got the latest FW on it, as they made huge strides with the Video mode setting & the colour it produced - it was like they'd added a BM LUT to the Film setting & you still had room to grade it more.
    Be really careful of the mini-HDMI port as it is really fragile - i've heard of it breaking even with a cage clamp. Which brings me onto the screen - don't believe all the rubbish about how bad it is. I never used anything but it's screen & I was able to nail focus every time - I could pull focus using it too!
    IR/UV cut filter essential. And if i remember correctly WB of 4500 was always a safe bet, which you could easily tweak in post if need be.

    Smallrig do a half cage for it that has a locking grip for the HDMI cable.

    Alternatively, you can get this from Movcam that gives you a plug in full size HDMI and power barrel connector adapter that can also be secured into a cage.

    I’m mostly concerned about the internal noise reduction, I really hope it’s not as aggressive as the one seen in the a7III at iso 6400 and above, even when dialed all the way down. If the S1 retains more detail  but with slightly more noise in the aforementioned iso:s it’s an instabuy for me.

    @Andrew Reid Hey Andrew, great interview. I really like the introduction. Awesome that you had a such an open talk and constructive  time with the Lumix S1 team and its leading gentleman. The current codec choices are Lumix G7 territory, which would not make me consider to buy this camera. I hope for GH5 codec choices, ALL Intra included and full VLOG. Then this would be my first full frame video/cinema camera. All full frame GH5 with full VLOG and without artificial sharpening and good battery life- here is my money! For now these codecs area available, which give Lumix G7 and GX85 quality.

    For long-time GH1 to GH5 shooters like myself, loyal from the beginning, at a time everyone else was shooting Canon, the S1 is a milestone. I have a bit of an emotional attachment to it already, being the first Panasonic full frame camera. It is not my first L-mount camera though. I’ve been shooting with the Leica SL for a few years now and it is still the most clean, ergonomic, minimalist full frame mirrorless body. It cannot, however, match the sheer size of the feature-set on the £2000 Panasonic S1.

    If someone wants a CCD on the cheap (other than the D16) then you can pick up a Sony PMW-F23 for next to nothing! (I've heard of them recently going for sub $1K)

    Ergonomics/battery consumption/various video features/high iso performance and so many others, are hot topics for years, and suddenly a sensor smaller than my finger nail, on a device slimmer than my finger are enough for pro's to earn their bread?
    Even the S9+ performance is laughable against some of my older cameras, but we bought it exactly for that to have one of the best imaging performance on Android land.

    This is a warning that many of you may already heed.
    My experience: In the past I've learned to be wary of Amazon vendors.  Some will sell international versions of cameras that are not supported in the US, for example. Last summer my wife and I purchased two Samsung Gear Fit2 watches.  Mine stopped working the first weekend in November.  I sent it in. Samsung responded today that they cannot fix the watch because it is an international model and will need to be shipped to Italy for repair. This week I thought of purchasing a second X-T3 from Amazon rather than from B and H. I'm glad I didn't make that mistake.

    PannySVHS reacted to mercer in 8K is still 4 years out   
    If I had to guess, I’d say at least 75% of the people that frequent this site would be better off with good 1080p than 4K and the idea of shooting 8K for interviews and weddings sounds like total and laughable overkill to me, unless needed for VFX. I get the idea of shooting 4K for clean 1080p but I’d rather watch a good story in dirty 1080p than a bad one in clean, downscaled 4K.
    I don’t know about you guys but I can’t say I’ve ever seen any of Nyquist’s films but I imagine they’re pretty boring.

    I don´t matter, if the human mind is letting itself be dwarfed by 8k youtube videos and social media alogrithms. Waste of energy electric energy and sofore fuel is mindblowing. Quantum computing is not coming at quantum computing speed. Plastic waste has achieved that very well though. All the cpus and gpus built just for 8k phones will come in billion numbers. Doubling polution and waste.

    Even more than already, it would be a reckless abuse of resources to built all the computing power for the 8k, in phones, for its streaming content, etc, that it hopefully will not become standard. All that silicone, all that waste of energy, all that polution for the 8k cellphones, TVs, internet streaming. Terrwatts of energy and Terratons of oil wasted, water poluted. All for some shitty 8k youtube crap.
