  1. I’ll start. The first thing to say is that I am extremely fortunate insofar as the pandemic has (with the exception of not being able to head north for the winter) been extremely positive. Working for a University the move to deliver lectures and other meetings online has been so much fun. An opportunity to build a green screen “studio” (around an Atem mini) and “play” with different techniques for online delivery. Everyone else in the institution has been screen sharing in Teams/Zoom - but it’s so easy with a little investment of time and money to dramatically improve on that. Last
  2. Given the choice I’d have preferred eND I’ve ibis in the A7Siii... Why don’t camera manufacturers offer such options? A sort of “build-a-bear” for camera-kiddies.
  3. The combination of these processors working in tandem with (presumably an updated) FCP is going to be an extremely attractive package. Yes, the numbers tell one story but Apple Prores raw, Apple FCP and Apple silicon pulling together in the same direction at the same time... Irrestistible.
  4. Useful to know. One question I have is how does the camera know whether to apply NR to the signal leaving the camera? The decision to record Prores raw or another Prores flavour is surely independent of whatever internal processing is applied to the output signal? But I could just be missing something and confusing myself!
  5. As a result of internal noise reduction? Can’t this be totally eliminated by external recording? To either a Ninja for Prores raw or BM Video Assist et al for Prores 422. (I’m not suggesting that you would want to use an external recorder, just asking whether internal NR can be bypassed).
  6. I thought @Andrew Reid’s piece was excellent. Useful insights. The rest of the thread proves one thing - we are all looking for different things from our cameras/tools. “Brilliant” that we have so many to choose from. I’m enjoying my Siii.
  7. The RED Hydrogen tried... unfortunately the camera module never appeared and it all rather fizzled out.

    Apple TV?

    BritBox & BBC app. Those are the “advantages” for me...
  9. I’d noticed these and also asked the same question. I suspect that not many people have direct experience. Given the cost the new DJI seem to be a more “sensible” purchase. But I’d welcome the opportunity to support the project - we should get Giantommaso (assuming he is indeed the chap behind this) on here (with Andrew’s blessing) to tell us more about the product and point out any benefits over the main rivals. And in an open transparent way - I don’t want a Hawaiian trip all expenses paid to test it...
  10. Composition is easy. With all the lenses and associated tools we now have it is trivial to get the look we want. What’s harder is getting the look other people appreciate...

    Canon EOS C90

    I was safe - I knew you’d pick it up! (With apologies to @ntblowz for rather getting side tracked by obscure reminiscing).

    Now I will spend the rest of the day with Annabella Lwin‘s vocals echoing around my head...
  13. And, indeed, whether any external recording (eg BM Video Assist prores) also prevents it... Don’t mind the Sony eating Canon, Nikon et al for breakfast but stars?
