  1. Yes i get it, I don't own a S1H yet, i've just found that some footage i've seen online had this kind of artifacts. Do you see it too on the the link i provided (not my footage, i dont have out of camera files) ? Maybe wrong choices in compression settings from his NLE ?
  2. Ok !! "original" does not really mean "original" ? I was not expecting vimeo compression to make such nasty artifacts! Thanks
  3. In the source footage i downloaded on vimeo: https://vimeo.com/363023270 the one called "original" 133 mb in the download section, but maybe it's not the source footage but already compressed in vimeo
  4. No I see this with davinci resolve, but also with VLC media player, windows media player, vimeo and youtube
  5. I find a lot of blotchiness on skintones and really harsh gradients in SH1 Vlog footage like this, I have the same issue with GH5. It looks really bad: It is also present with Prores external recording. Do you see it too, or is it a problem from my players ? You can download original clips here (thanks to Cosmic dog for providing it): https://vimeo.com/363023270 and the first one: https://vimeo.com/366026486
  6. Yes lack of "thickness", and still the "blotchiness" on skin tones, like on GH5 Vlog. Here's some BMPCC footage that i find to have more "weight" Hopefully external Prores or prores RAW would improve this, but from reviews i've seen on EVA 1, 10 bit prores RAW does not improve quality that much over internal recording Maybe 12 bits vs 10 bit is the key...
  7. Yes I really hope i'm wrong! S1H ticks a lot of boxes for me. Although users feedback is important, I have to disagree on not relying on what i'm seeing. For instance i find that most short videos released by panasonic are underwhelming, especially "alive"; "the mixup" and "live your play". That 's what i was calling "thin" colors for skin tones. And those were performed in controlled lighting environment, set design, make-up, on external recorder... But maybe it's just a matter of taste. "Kepler 138" is brilliant, but i think those guys are so talented that they would have done something amazing even with an a7S first gen! ;).
  8. Thanks for the feedback! I'm still hesitating between S1H and P6K. I think i've watched all S1H and S1 avalaible footage on youtube and vimeo! My feeling is that despite all the ergonomic issues, P6K is in another league in term of image quality. Some P6k footage looks like really high end cinema cameras. On the other hand, while i've seen really nice footage from S1H, overall I still feel that videoy/digital look (too sharp, noise reduction artifacts, harsh highlight rolloff, weird colors in mixed lighting situations, "thin" color depth especially on skin tones that often look platic) in addition to noticeable rolling shutter and wobbles. My hope is that image quality is hindered by high compression h265 4.2.0 codecs , so that prores raw would improve it substancialy. However, raw will likely be limited to 10 bits (EVA 1 raw is 10 bit, and if it was 12 bits they would have been bragging to boost sales !) I've got a question for EVA-1 users: Does 10 bit prores raw improve significantly image quality in comparison with internal codecs or 10 bit 4.2.2 prores HQ from external recorder ?
  9. I see a lot of "wobble" in this footage (as well as in DPreview and DSLR Video shooter review). https://vimeo.com/362247050 Maybe electronic stabilization was turned on in addition to ibis? Except "Kepler 138", I still have not seen any convincing footage from this camera (even the other official panasonic promo ones with 50k $ + rigs and lights look worse than some hobbyist pocket 6k videos you can find on youtube!). Is raw upgrade really going to improve that ? (maybe EVA users have the answer ? )
  10. Thanks for your answers. Yes in 8 bit those "splotches" are more obvious, but i can see them in 10 bit footage too (shown in the frame from Pampuri's footage in my post, between her eyes)
  11. I'm still debating wether i should buy GH5 or GH5s. One thing that i've noticed when grading sample files (only applying official varicam LUT for instance on Emmanuel Pampuri's footage) is that some "blocks" of colors appears, especially on skin tones (even in 10 bits footage, see capture) without smooth colors transitions. This is also shown in those 2 youtube videos: - have you noticed these artifacts too ? - is it still present in 400 mbps files ? - Has GH5s improved on this ? - Is it my imagination ? Thanks
  12. It would be great if you could compare dynamic range and latitute (overexposed/underexposed skintones brought back to normal exposure) Also IBIS with no IS lens on gh5 vs OIS lens on canon Thanks!
  13. Hi, is HLG available in 1080p 60p 10 bit. (It is not available in 4k 8bit 60p without external recorder it seems)?
  14. I've got some questions regarding GH5: - Is the 1080p vfr (120 p etc...) , 10 bit or 8bit? Is it 200 mbps since v 2.0? - does 4k 60p also benefit from 400 mbps? ( if not, i dont get it, since it would have improved compression issues using vlog) Thanks!

  16. Hi, I'm still hesitating between the two, since I can buy a used 1Dx mark ii for about the same price as a GH5 + Speedbooster. Is the 1dx2 touchscreen bright enough to use it during a sunny day? Or is a z-finder mandatory ? Is the GH5 autofocus "Ok" for photography (fast moving subjects)? Could someone share some short 1DX2 MJPEG footage to test if it plays smoothly in resolve and the gradability (wetransfer sample files from philip bloom are not available anymore) Thank you
  17. - is gh5 ibis + metabones + canon glass stabilization superior to 1dxii + canon OIS lens stabilization? For instance, is the 100mm 2.8 macro L usable handheld on both cameras equally? - Which camera seems to have the highest dynamic range? Does the custom "clog" really increase DR? Thanks !
  18. It seems that the camera is limited to 8 bit recording in 60fps... (see at approx 3 min mark in this video)
  19. Yes I get it, but what I mean is that instead of using almost 1024 values, it is limited to only 600ish. In 10 bit files, it is ok i guess (even though non optimal), but in 8 bit files it becomes only 160ish values. So using Vlog in 4k 60p may lead to severe banding. In comparison here are two waveforms from a7s 4k slog2 footage. The second is the same as the first one with superwhite pulled down. Third is GH5. As you can see, sony files use roughly IRE from 10 to 109, so approximately 230ish values in 8 bit. It 10 bit it would be 950ish values which would give better tonality than GH5 Vlog files. That is why I find it quite disapointing (tell me if I'm wrong with my reasoning!)
  20. Thanks, So, to my understanding, less "shades" are recorded compared to full swing, which is quite disapointing. Is it the same fore Cinegammas (Cinelike V and D) or standard profiles ?
  21. Luke, does the GH5 in Vlog encode superwhite (i.e. 100-109 IRE) or are the highlights clipped at 100 IRE ? Thanks!
  22. Here's my try! There is color noise in the shadows, but as shown in the RGB parade of the ungraded footage there is room to overexpose without cliping highlights to get rid of it eventually. ETTR might work well
  23. The same nomads of Mongolia family as in Brandon li's video!
  24. I was really hoping for a 4k ninja star annoucement... I own an a7S and I mostly do Run and Gun shooting, you may think I'm crazy, but i'm on the edge of buying an 4k external monitor/recorder to put it in a backpack/or attached on belt, screen turned off. And occasionaly use it as a monitor too. My concern with this method is overheating, especially in a bag! It kills the purpose of being low profile with a backpack on fire! Is it possible, or is it completely stupid ? If possible, which recorder would be the best (atomos assassin or pix-e5h or this BM 4K) ? Thanks!
