  1. X-pro line has always been photo first. Any video features have been add-ons. 4k came via update.
  2. You might want to experiment with your AF settings.
  3. Video AF depends on the lens. The newer ones are great but the older f1.4 lenses aren't so good and make a little noise. The 23/f2.0 is fantastic and the 18-55 kit zoom is really good, too. I just got the Zeiss 32mm and it seems to work really well but I haven't used it enough to say for sure yet. The 35/f1.4 is good for photo but a little slow and noisy for video. These are all the ones that I have tried so far.

    This is why I sold my A7iii. I would go back to Sony if they would add a 10bit 422 option at the A7iii price point but I'm not holding my breath.
  5. That’s a good question... according to their q2 report, camera sales were down and they still sold over a million units in one quarter... how many of those were cinema cameras... I don’t know but probably more than you think. I'm sure their cinema line has the highest profit margin by a lot but, with the contracting camera market, it's mind-boggling that they seem to be going out of their way to alienate a segment of the market that they played such a primary role in creating.
  6. If you're going to make any comparisons, it should be A6600 vs X-T3, APS-C flagship vs APS-C flagship.
  7. 32bit float? So it's the Sound Devices version of the Zoom F6 that has been delayed into October?
  8. I was certain the new Sony would at least match the x-t3. Oh well. How does the Z6 image compare to the x-t3's all i and the x-t30's 200mbit? The small print in that first 90d promotional video says that 4k is from video processing. It might not be as bad but it doesn't sound like it's full 4k.
  9. How many Panasonic cameras have offered manual control in HFR? How many Canon cameras have offered 24p? One is a common feature found even on many point and shoot cameras. The other is a bit newer and more unique.
  10. Your complaint/comparison makes no sense. Not allowing manual control in HFR is reasonable market segmentation (possibly even a hardware limitation). REMOVING 24p is crippling cameras for an entire segment of the customer base. And I don't own anything by either of these brands.
  11. Small print at 1:10 in the video says 4k through "video processing."
  12. And, like Fuji's, no stabilization with the Fuji being less expensive.
  13. Could you elaborate on that a bit? I sold my a7iii a little while back and I'm considering a z6.
  14. This X-H1 deal gets really good when you add a lens https://www.fujirumors.com/one-deal-to-rule-them-all-fujifilm-x-h1-steal-and-x-gfx-summer-deals/
  15. One of the rumor sites had it at $1399
  16. Lots of companies only highlight the highest fps in their initial ads. I'm betting 24 is in there on the 90d. Not so sure about the m6m2. They also have 4k and DPAF on the screen at the same time in the 90d ad so that's a good sign.
  17. What about a local screening in conjunction with the dog rescue group? Get some word of mouth going as the people who see it live spread the link on their social media. There are also lots of film festivals that focus on docs. I'm doing the festival thing with my horror flick now. And could really use a marketing person because that is definitely not my forte.
  18. Nice shots! Perfect setting for a horror movie or a noirish thriller. Sorry, I didn't see this post back in 2018.
  19. This is the kit I would like but I don't care about the case or cpl https://www.focuscamera.com/nikon-z6-mirrorless-camera-with-50mm-f-1-8-lens-and-ftz-mount-adapter-bundle.html I added the refurbished camera and refurbished FTZ plus new 50mm, 120gb XQD and new Nikon battery to my B&H cart. Total $2334 So that's a difference of about $285. And a person could save another $50 because B&H has a used one for $1299. I think I would go with the refurbished. But my propensity for giving into temptation is at war with my curiosity about the Sigma FP and what Sony is going to announce at the end of the month. It's like when you get on Netflix and there are too many choices except, in this case, the potentially better choices are theoretical and in the future.
  20. If you need an XQD and the FTZ, the new kits work out to be about the same price. This thing is really tempting and I only know of one sure fire way to deal with temptation 😈

    An XC10 with aps-c, 1.8 to 2.8 and uncrippled AF in 4k would be my dream camera.
