  1. @Geoff CB so 10bit is still very expensive? What is the cheapest-decent- that option? I will try to upgrade everything the next 15 months, if I have, I will wait for some things, editing machine is one of that I guess..
  2. What horror film is shot in 25,600 ISO?! There are specialized security cameras with infrared and other technologies, you are not going to put a A7s as a security camera, first of all, it would be the first to be stolen!
  3. @Phil A +1 for the Ari bag! Interesting character too.
  4. This LG ultra wide is interesting, what about 2 of those, does it make any sens or is it a waste of money (and space)? Are there any better ultra wide monitors? What other monitors are must buy for editing right now, and not more than a thousand $?
  5. @Emanuel the most money I earned the last couple of years are coming from C100 cameras, and those haven't the best codecs in business, or maybe, they do have! I believe my greatest achievement so far was a media installation I did in film school (art department) were I had only a tiny light for orientation purposes, and all the performance was a wall of sound (achieved by a tap of water, a telephone analog signal, a Budha box and a few guitar effects and an amp). The key was that the lack of sight enhanced imagination. It is how you use your tools I guess.
  6. @Emanuel it is ironic that you try to convince anyone that a6300/a6500 are belonging "..in the professional camp." As a professional, that I earn my family's bread with my cameras, I would take the shitty GH5 iso quality anytime, to the "Sony-only-on-the-spec-sheet champ". Actually I choose to stay with NX, a dead system, instead of the latest APS-C Sonys, because it is more reliable, have exactly the lenses I need in my line of work in APS-C, better ergonomics, lower battery consumption, no overheating etc etc, and I have worked a few times with the a6300 at 2016, and never had to g
  7. Actually I am surprised of how bad the a6500 looks at your example. Is the Olympus the best of the three? Sharper than the GH5, better NR algorithm than the a6500??
  8. Sorry, not familiar with any of those lenses (unfortunately I own lenses from 5-7 different systems, but no Nikon at all). I am not sure if Nikon are fully closed (the aperture) when adapted, Canon are fully open (so you can do most things, as the 2.8f I use adapted are pretty fine wide open), there is also a trick with EF if you have a EF body, you can make them accept a specific f stop. Anyways, do your lenses have an aperture ring (can you choose the aperture from the lens, not the camera?)? If they do not, then someone has to tell you what is the case with the Nikon adapter lenses, s
  9. @Rodolfo Fernandes you can add whatever mount with a simple adapter (usually go from 5-25$ on ebay, the cheap ones works well so far with my legacy lenses), NX-L is EF adapter, so then you go from EF to whatever you want. I would advise for K&F concept adapters, a bit to the expensive side (while the cheap ones go to 5$, these can found around 15$) but the quality is extremely good. What Nikon do you use? You know that the adapter is not active (can't change aperture if you do not have the physical ring on the lens). @lucabutera You said that NX-L with active control will b
  10. Nikon has(had) a whole 1" mirrorless system for crying out loud! Once, before fully committed on Samsung NX (yes, I fully committed on an abandoned system when I realized that it was abandoned, go figure!) I was considering a Nikon 1 camera (probably the water resistant one) and a few lenses for ultra portable/hiking/vacationing camera (I got a small NX and I am fine finally, why to go to 1" when you have almost the same size/weight ration on ASP-C). That system had some serious advantages and some pretty cool little lenses. I do not understand why it took them so long for the DL series.
  11. To be honest guys, @lucabutera has done (hardware wise) the most any other have since the beggining of the system, even Metabones LIED, telling us that it is not possible, and then had to re-phrase talking about business models and the such. @Marco Tecno, your list is quite big! Even though I agree with most of your list, I am not anxious to see something same size as the Metabones (why? it can be bigger, if it does the job). Have you seen the piezo electric thingy for Canon lenses? Even Canon had to build a whole box under the lens, to accommodate their pz adaptor, why not Luca, just one
  12. @iGamer4tv "I just want to understand why, is it my camera, the lens, just the format itself? So, the only way to get the most of 4k is to just get a wider lens to get more of the picture?" The crop factor doesn't change, you will always will have the crop factors mentioned above, whatever lens you will choose. Well, better read here https://www.bhphotovideo.com/explora/video/tips-and-solutions/how-emulate-super-35mm-4k-video-panasonic-gh4 I believe the only camera with no crop factor at all in every mode (including slow motion) is Samsung NX1. It is something to do with
  13. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/937192-REG/rode_videomic_booming_kit_windbuster.html get something like this, and a lavalier (I never use one outside, only inside) I do not know the cheap ones. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/820760-REG/Rode_NTG_2_Microphone_with_Windshield.html or a Sennheiser MKE600/ME66 This is my kit for outside, costed a bit shy of 2000 euros a few years ago https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1038391-REG/sennheiser_usmkh416propack_mkh_416_shotgun_pro_pack.html I am always confident that I am doing my best with this kit.
  14. If there are no capitalists, then who is going to produce mass marketed cheap phones? And who is going to evolve the tech? And are professionals going to work with their mobile phones? And in less than a decade? I should go and sell all my NASDAQ portfolio soon..
  15. What exactly are your needs? Are you going to earn any money? Shooting indoors/outdoors? Are you going to have help? Ask yourself the questions, and you will find the right answers (Kung Fu Panda style!)!! Cheapest kit is the cheap Rode (200$+80$ for the micro boom+50$ for a cheap set of headphones) and records on camera. Second choice is the Tascam a ntg3 Rode (or a similar Sennheisser, Audio Technica has some interesting options too), a softie and a Rycote mount (or the new Rode mount with Rycote technologie, is 10$ cheaper, softie strongly advised to be Rycote), maybe a better set
  16. Because Tascam specializes in audio for video productions and they have good cheap recorders, while Zoom F4 and F8 seem excellent and specialized for video, I do not see them being close to your budget, or need. The one you mention I believe is a very good performer for its money. The lens comparison works with money as well, in sound you can't cheat on cheap things, the best stuff are absolutely the most expensive, ofcourse at some point you have to consider if getting 1% better performance worths 1000$ more, or somwthing. In sound also, good "investments" last a long time. Sennheisser 4
  17. As I said "the rest are subjective", and in his subjective kind of choice is the a6300, but when numbers talk it is maths, physics, facts, objective truth, and on a table: http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?303559-Measuring-rolling-shutter-put-a-number-on-this-issue! It is like all science is pointless because most of humanity believe in religions anyway.. (I am watching the Arrival right now by the way!) P.S Today I was talking with my business partner about his ISO experience with his a6300 -and because of this thread- and he was even more strict than me at th
  18. Not "syncing" per se, but synch shootings, are the ones that sight and sound are synchronized and tight. If it is not a synch shooting then you do not care too much about these stuff. Just having a mic on your camera isn't doing anything really for your sound, the trick is to take your mic off camera (like most people trying to do with lights or flash units). The advantages are that you have a better quality mic from your 5$(or 10) internal one, and gather less camera and hand sounds, but usually, it is too far away from your sound source, and has no right angle and position to do its job
  19. I heard about it, didn't know was so remote! I live in the exact opossite of Europe, Greece. On the NX1 sub forum there is @ricardo_sousa11, I believe he is from Portugal, maybe he can help with local shops and prices, here the a6500 is very expensive, and I have used a6300 as a B or C cam a few times and I ain't a big fun, but for your limited use it can be alright. NX1+S lens = 650 + 650 = 1300€, if the combo is in a great condition, and if you can lower the price a bit more (or offers more than one battery, extrnal charger, any extras, etc), then I believe it is a super opportunit
  20. Where in Europe aren't any camera stores?! I just noticed that in my little European country the a6500 is actually 1800€, for that money I would go GH5, and for a super bargain I would try to find the cheapest NX1 possible (probably with the 16-50S 2-2.8f lens). There is a speedbooster for that now, look at the NX1 hack sub forum for info. Middling Panasonics are great too, whatever you buy is good enough for nost things.
  21. Just buy a tascam, and a couple of mics. I am affraid you need to read more, and ask for someone to help you (someone with some sound knowledge). Just sticking a mic at the top of your camera is just a bit better than your cameras in-built mics, and that is the worst possiblr solution for synch sound.
  22. Nikon is very tough because of their legacy and dSLR sales, which -even though a lot of us consider them relics of the past- still sell more than mirrorless cameras, and I take a D750 everyday for pro photo work instead of any mirrorless Sony, and most of my pro photo friends did actually. If they don't make a bold mirrorless move soon though, then they will be left behind and Sony will eat up their sales quite soon and quite a bit,especially with the A7 mark III series of camera that supposed to be imminent. If Sony screw up once more (pro ergonomics, power capacity, heat management) the
  23. @Micah Mahaffey Rolling shutter: NX1 1080p 7.9ms a6300. 15.2ms NX1 4K 30.9ms a6300 39ms Especially the 1080p modes of all the Samsungs (and 2.5K for NX500) are best in class (and in general), while 4K performance is not equally stellar, a6300 has absolutely the worst rolling shutter performance tested. I have worked with a6300 but through 6400iso, 8000, why? The rest are subjective, not even close to ergonomics and the such, where NX1 is a Canonikon child (dSLR with pro mirrorless body) of the feature, while a6300 a Sony bastard (of a compac
  24. @Andrew Reid as of the NX1 situation, the speedbooster has been sold to quite a few people already, actually right now Luca is preparing a better version and he is preparing a modification of the Apeture wireless focus device to work actively with EF lenses to the NX. This camera just can't die.
