    Interesting about the A5100, never realised it could do a phase-detect AF focus pull off the touch screen. I thought the A6000 was the first Sony sensor to get onboard phase-detect AF, and even then it didn't work very well in video mode.

    It uses the same 24mpgx sensor. even the predecessor Nex 5r (i have one) and  5t hasdphase detect focus pull of the touch screen.

    I think it would be great to turn a little bit more attention to lenses, new or old it doesn't matter, and rest a little from new cameras. In the past I always enjoyed topics about lenses, because there was much less arguing, and much more shared advices and gem discoveries.

    Andrew, I still wait for your take on that Angenieux that you said you bought.

    I agree 100% so many awesome lenses ! the cameras are good enough that we can focus on the lens and its rendering only :)

    practicals, a photolamp bounced, boosted 28mm FD and way too high iso 1600:) Shoot, now I spoiled the camera for my planned guess the camera challenge:)

    i would have never guessed. Have you tried 24mm 2.8 FD ? my personal favorite,leave it on 2.8 come close about one meter and let the magic happen ! 

  3. Awesome Andrew ! looking forward to footage. looks promising. I need to try out the new m43 cameras to see for myself.

    however there still one thing I remember from using the old Olympus E 420 (4/3 DSLR, smallest DSLR at that time) and that was over blown highlights when strong light source was pointed into the camera over when exposed on something in the shadow the highlights would blown out bigger portion of the pic. see the picture for reference and don't get me wrong pls I understand exposing etc. :blush:

    Hey Andrew, I agree with you that long form reviews are getting few and far between, but I think there's great value in shooting a 30 second - 90 second demo with a new camera. People are constantly searching for well shot videos with new camera releases. Purely my opinion, but I think you could create good buzz with this approach.

    I'm just not interested in doing that... I think it's a pathetic attention seeking ploy :)

    why ? I disagree. A nice and well made footage sometimes speaks more than a 500 page book, and the videos that you made with the articles were great, always had a bit of a soul.

    inally, I think a few adverts wouldn;t do much hard to the site

    I agree, but have the feeling Andrew wants to keep it advertisement free so that no one can connect it with biased opinion? what about advertisement for non related stuff ? or just an option to buy stuff via links to retailers as you suggest ?

    ice sentiment but I am little bit confused why you think the problem revolves around money and monetizing the blog.

    I don't, I only imagined that one needs to do something for a living and since we can only guess how much time it consumes I figured you might got busy with other stuff.

    Great ! Looking forward to it.

    The reason I haven't been writing as many blog posts recently is because I'm demotivated to do so

    That is bad. What got me motivated last time was when I saw sony fs 700R (with 4k enabled) for 2500 euros (excluding the external recorder for raw) on ebay. that is crazy.

    Facebook and Instagram content is where it's at, sadly.

    A finger swipe, 2 seconds, next.

    Yes sadly it is, nevertheless it is the reason why (at least me personally, but I believe many others) come here and been going here for past years. Moreover that was what separated this blog from many others. that and the consequent growth with the forum and eoshd guides.

    To say that Eoshd has no place is shortsighted, the community and you as the author have significant voice in the industry where , at least panasonic and sony have been listening. However it is true that it might be harder to monetize and exploit it, but then again if previously mentioned Mr. Northrup can do it so can Eoshd. Maybe rich adds for a growth of a certain manly part could do the job :D . Or sing dire straits "money for nothing and chicks for free" ?

    You must know by the traffic how many readers each article attracts. I personally would be happy for comments on the published videos you create, just something, hell even a movie review. exciting times.

    The disingenuous ones hyping products and doing sponsored content I have no time for, unfortunately it seems a lot of people do though!

    No please no. We never came here for that, not bunch of gorillas that need to have manuals read. Some people do enjoy those reviews but once they learn a bit more they realize they dont need anymore sponsored reviews, lets educate them into something bigger something more, just like apple educates their customers.

    It's because joe public just clicks on the first video he sees after typing "GH4" into YouTube or Facebook, that any old shit has been allowed to float to the top of the pile.

    True for the joe public, not for us. I always came here first (then vimeo intense search) to see relevant footage, and even these days one struggle to find actual good footage of cameras now older than my first smartphone. I remember having chills down my spine watching the A7s vs 5d mark iii wishing for the sony to be better. 

    In the end , IT IS STILL quality over quantity. Maybe we should begin thinking of paying in some way for the quality. Much of what i said might be subjective just from my point of view but i am confident i am not alone.

    Wish you good luck. 

  9. Hi Eoshd forum community and Mr. Reid

    I remember days when there were new articles at least two times a week. What happened ? I miss those days. Mr. Reid please continue, I am confident  there are many who are eagerly waiting for anything you publish. Don't get demotivated by trolls and jerks, they just need to do something with their free time and jealousy. Don't leave us hanging. Thanks ;)

    I am watching civil war as we speak they could have use every camera on earth and could not have saved this crap it suck big doneky cook

    why was it so bad for you ? It's a comic book movie, i expected humor, action and a bit entertaining plot (not very complicated). What I got for nice story, pleasant natural jokes, great action scenes that were done realistically. I was happy it was fun :)

  11. Hi guys, wanted to share the news (from the CA,Civil War movie) about the high demand for ARRI alexa 65 (the one used in Revenant). Happy to be alive for the new upcoming movies recorded with this beast : Rodrigo Prieto, for Passengers; Greig Fraser, for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story; and Tom Stern, for Sully. 

    "To meet demand, ARRI is additionally building 40 more Alexa 65 cameras for its rental facilities worldwide, which will more than double its current inventory of 30, ARRI exec Dana Ross told The Hollywood Reporter."

    Funny, when I had the 7D I always had to tweak the colors. Same happened with 5D files. I find Canon's colors so unnatural, in fact I find them too saturated and too contrasty.

    I enjoy Sony's color much better.

    it has been proven many times that colors are matter to a subjective view, (http://web.mit.edu/abyrne/www/ColorRealism.html) there are many other articles and scientific studies. thus it's just a perspective. you can make it pleasant to some but others will find it disgusting. i share your opinion about canon color, to much saturation, too much contrast

    Sony pumps out new cameras every month now.

    that is really an insightful comment you made here. wow. thank you 

  13. . Yes and in my opinion that's horrible. the a7rii have more options for recording, less rolling shutter in FF mode, who cares if the ful lreadout is crop? you can use more lenses and use the speedbooster, are they even aware of the speedboosters ? it is dissapointing that a7s is not better in video. At this point, after seeing all the test shots, I am disappointed and have to absolutely agree that a7s ii was rushed, and not needed. It is simply a rip of for the guys who bought atomos. Moreover this camera doesn't offer anything more from the a7rii but a bit better lowlight (really in all the tests i ve seen, unless you want to shoot in moonlight, which you still can with the a7s mark i) and the 120fps in 1080p which is still not that stellar. i am dissapointed, rebranded sensor for 2899USD with a major sunspot issue ? WTF SONY ?! they should have waited, bring out a mature product , and separate it from a7rii with video completely like 10bit, (i dont care if the current processors do not support it, change them) so that we dont need to hesitate between those two. oh god sony why ?! 

  14. The color is not a physical property of any object, it is only subjective to our mind. What we are used to. There is zero science to your claims that Canon has "better" colors, there is no "better" color. A certain color you might find pleasing, is disgusting to others. Just as stated here:

    Funny, when I had the 7D I always had to tweak the colors. Same happened with 5D files. I find Canon's colors so unnatural, in fact I find them too saturated and too contrasty.

    I enjoy Sony's color much better.

    On the other there are also articles saying the opposite, like this one : http://web.mit.edu/abyrne/www/ColorRealism.html, but as they say it works only to a certain degree. 

    However it is important to note the difficulty of creating a nice look with the sony's S Log compared to baked colors of Canon straight out of camera. 

    Personally, I don't care if canon has almighty color, if those grandpas cannot give me simple stuff like focus peeking or articulated screen (what is the almighty color shot to me if it is not in focus and my back is crying in pain) to more sophisticated stuff such as slow mo, better DR, better sensor etc. etc. etc. If only we could combine best of both worlds
