  1. Smallrig just announced the RC450D, which has rougly the same output as the aputure 600D, but for 400$ less. So I guess the ball is in aputure's park now, to release an amaran 600D.
  2. If interested I am selling my kowa bell & howell (based in Belgium)
  3. oh that's great, did not know that feature. I was going for either a canon r6 II or the sony A7IV. So I will prolly end up with the sony A7IV allthough I have a bunch of EF lenses, which is prolly better supported with the EF-RF adapter.
  4. Hello guys, Never been into autofocus for video, but lately I see def a use for it. Which are your favorite Full frame autofocus lenses? On canon or sony (panasonic is still behind). As I am thinking about buying a canon or sony camera just for autofocus. I will keep using panasonic S5 or blackmagic camera's for manual focus stuff. - With the least lens breathing. - Slowest aputure I would use is 2.8, 35mm 1.4/1.2 is prolly all I need. But a runandgun 24-70mm might be handy as well. Thanks!
  5. Sounds they fixed most of the bugs of the R5 and the R6, I hope they fixed the IBIS as well. The ibis on the panasonic camera's was way ahead. If its the same now, I might get one of these.
  6. So when do you think we will see cheaper 600W/1200W led lights? I mean like a amaran version of the aputure 600w/1200W. Some of you might say the 600W version is already cheap, but for my wallet it's still a lot. Allthough its much cheaper then lights were before, I guess at some point amaran or godox or whatever will bring a cheaper version around. Do you think it's still years away?
  7. Hmm the video image does not seem to be an upgrade. I wished they would focus on colors a bit more, as they seem quite boring. Offcourse they are just test video's, but still. Can we expect an A7S IV anytime soon? camera news has been quite dead the last 2 years. Still hoping on a full frame blackmagic camera, in a smaller body (The width of the pockets is a bummer for gymbal work).
  8. Ok found it Set alpha mode to Premultiplied and change Dominance to "Upper field" and make sure data levels are on "full data".
  9. Hello guys, I am trying to use a video overlay in my video's. When I import and drag it over in Premiere it is instantly fine. But whenever I do the same thing in Davinci Resolve. The default clip Alpha Mode setting is "Straight", So I see these weird black edges. ==> https://postimg.cc/vDPZwMhG But whenever I change the Alpha Mode setting to "Premultiplied". The background color of the video overlay changes (even when it hasnt been scaled down). ==> https://postimg.cc/Wqtj1F8T So this is doing my head in, does anybody know a fix? Thanks!
  10. Yeah I got one recently as well. Prettt good. 2 lightning ports does kinda suck. Did not know until I tried to connect external disks and mouse 😄
  11. Its gonna be good and bad news when they do. I would love such a tool, as I have it on me 24/7. Problem is that everyone else also does. Which will saturate the markets even more, it will get harder to make a living. Sure you could move up a level, but guess what, every creator will try to do so.
  12. Been so for years, super annoying. Not sure why those accounts dont get removed.
  13. A bit early I guess, but would love to see a side by side with the panasonic s5. Def shooting underexposed and bringing it back up in post. (Also DR wise) I love my s5, but would love to get my hands on that canon DPAF for vlogging purposes, would save me so much time.
  14. What camera is the best in bringing up the shadows? I am using a panasonic S5 right now. But for vlogging purposes I def am looking into something with better AF. so A7S III, A7IV, R6, R5, C70 etc come to mind, allthough have not shot anything with these camera's. But I rather underexpose stuff and bring it up in post then the other way around. The s5 does that pretty good, but the continious AF is horrible. Any suggestions?
  15. is the chip shortage also the reason the prices from the A7S iii and R5 are kept so high? As they are almost a year and half old, and almost seem to be the same price as the launch. I am used to camera prices dropping like crazy, especially when I buy one.
  16. Hello, Has anybody tried the new magic lantern hack where you can shoot 14 stops of dr with the 5D III? Would love to see some video's shot with it. I always loved the 5D iii, so I might pick one back up again if it holds up. Cheers
  17. As far as I know it has been a slow year for camera releases right? 2020 was a great year R5, A7S III, fx3,... but this year nothing seems worth mentioning? Also not looking to renew my camera's right now. Allthough continious autofocus would be great on te panny S5 with adapted EF lenses.
  18. Thats a steal, def get it. I still use it all the time.
  19. I have a feeling we will see a new sensor from blackmagic soon as the ursa mini 4.6k and 6K sensors are quite old (in bm terms). So I might hold on till the end of summer.
  20. Yeah this is something I already tried. Take a while to set up though. So was thinking about getting a remote control.
  21. So I am trying the self timer for creating some selfies, but whenever I hit the photo button it focuses on my face while I am right in front of the camera, then I run back to the background where I want to be standing, but then the camera doesnt refocus. (I am using an S5 with EF adapter and tamron 24-70mm g2.) Does anybody know how to fix this? Thanks,
  22. Yeah the DOF was distracting. And I usually love shallow dof. I hate lens flares (all of them), so that was annoying as well. Not a masterpiece, but for netflix def a watchable movie. Allthough there is lack of character growth, and all characters remain flat.
  23. Aputure shared that they were working on one as well. Well at these 3K prices I wont be getting one soon. But I guess in 2-3 years we will see them in the 1K range. I really love the amaran series, for my needs I dont need anything I can throw around. Im very carefull and Idont rent my lights out.
  24. I hope aputure releases a 1200W amaran version below 1K soon 😄
