  1. There are so many things that can go wrong with these flying machines! I am wondering if the newer ones -Mavic/P4 - are easier and safer to fly.
  2. They will go IBIS eventually, everybody does. Fuji is the only camera not offering any kind of stabilization, even NX1 and M5 offer some kind of e-stabilizer(DIS). ..and touch screen, it offers so much in terms of usability, speedy changes, menu and play back easyness, advanced AF selection, and why not, 1 touch photos. I was never a fun of fully articulating screens either!
  3. @Alt Shoo are you involved with the production? Do you have any production comments and/or settings to share with us? Great work, skin colors a bit off (because of the stylitization I guess), excellent job overall.
  4. @tokhee it can't be 4 years, but I know what you are talking about. NX1 above 3200 falls apart and I believe it is some stupid threshold on the coded because shooting raw the image is much more capable of coping with extremities. On the other hand, and the 16-50S where I can go to 2f from 16-24mm (24-35equiv) and 2.8f to the rest of the range, I do not need to go above 2000ISO which I am very comfortable using the camera. I am using NX1 with Ronin all the time, and the AF has never failed me (we do use some lighting for indoor shooting of course). I see Fuji doing big leaps forward,
  5. @Mattias Burling my mistake, I thought that C100/fs5 etc were off limits. Of course I wasn't expecting a Red or Arri on that, and I wouldn't care about the cost either! The big one is too noisy for synch videos, and the small one doesn't do the parallax thing (which is very important for product placement and story telling), and the whole set is almost 1000 euros with 5 weeks waiting time. So it is not the no brainer that it seems like. Does anyone knows Edelkrone chinese simple sliders that work well? We have the original one and works great, but we have to split the
  6. @Dean sorry, I thought that you moved on! I just see the Fuji as a downgrade on a lot Of things (touch screen, DIS, I prefer a few lenses of NX, 73minutes continous video with no overheating and no extra battery grip, H265, I do not have to spend any money, as I own everything I need on the NX system) and the 16-50 2-2.8f lens is keeping me tighter to the NX system, plus the brilliant 10mm 3.5f fish eye, that I use with NX3000/NX500 instead of a gopro camera for various shoots. If anyone can answer my previous questions would be really helpful. Maybe the X-T3 will finally
  7. Brilliant, but too small, for a very light camera and very expensive. I am no ashamed to say that I am waiting for a Chinese version of it.
  8. NX1 still best value for money, now with a speedbooster too! They don't make them as they used too..
  9. @Dean sorry if you have answered that before, but can you say a few cons and pros of the Fuji vs the NX1? What about the 16-50S vs a similar Fuji? For a lot of NX users, Fuji is closer to our needs than other mirrorless offerings, so I would like to hear a few words for someone that have done the "Pass-over"! Also, my impression is that there isn't any native Fuji fish eye lens, am I right? What other fish eye offerings exist? Are there any active adapters (Canon/Nikon)? Cheers.
  10. It took them half a dozen of years for this, I hope in another half, they will have a working prototype camera. I believe Fuji helped a bit in the design too, if I remember right. Instead of spending resources in todays technology, those two skipped a generation and go for touch down. Where is Sony with their groundbraking technologies? I am sure there will be a huge tech war, because sensors are the future, and everyone -except Sony and Samsung - were left quite a bit behind. Exciting times!
  11. Me too! Actually that is the only reason I haven't one yet, as I started a similar thread a few months ago, and noone has ever used this one! There are some youtube videos of the Ikan version, you can take a look there for starters. It is also touch screen!
  12. http://www.personal-view.com/deals/monitors/neway-monitors Neway ct500ho it is the same as Ikan new 5" with touch screen, but I have never seen one on the field. http://ikancorp.com/mobile/productdetail.php?id=1710 The price from personal view is right too, as the Ikan price goes Blackagic video assist territory.
  13. Does anyone knows if it is the same as cinemartin? Places to buy?
  14. @BenEricson Fact is, for all the awesomeness C300markII has, it is a bit overpriced for small markets like mine, I have to double my camera budget , while still have a lot of stuff to complete my sound kit, some basic lights, a better 4K editing machine etc etc C100mkII is my favorite camera to use right now, but my next buys are going to be 4K ready, I seriously can't think of a reason of buying a NOT 4K camera in the 2nd quarter of 2017, and there is no Canon C options for less than 13.640€ that the C300markII costs here. Plus, bigger (and more expensive) tripod, accessories, bags etc

  16. @Ronnie Amighetti http://www.cinemartin.com/monitors/7inch/loyal/lt/ Is this the similar to the feelworld? I am really tempted by the Neway/Ikan monitor but noone owns it around here, I had some communication with Neway China, but the price to come to Europe was almost 300€, which it reaches the Lilliput territory, which is a full HD 5.5" monitor with great standards, new design, panel and all (yellow color a la Atomos included!). From what I hear the Ikan/Neway is a very refined 5" monitor, that honestly fits better my mirrorless style and do 4K as well.
  17. Yes, my first concern is that I am going to crash it the second battery. Second concern, is how much flight time I need for some worthy shots (just the basics), Third, I really do not like the image quality of the previous ones (and action cameras), actually I detest them, so for a crash cam, I am using a small ASP-C mirrorless with a fish eye on it, much much better image quality, so the new P4p camera seems like a must for everyone (old footage wasn't cut greatly with our advanced mirrorless and intercheangable video cameras). With all these said, I ideally would like a Mavic
  18. @benymypony for 550$ I am doing it for free on my 3m boom pole (which I do for years and years now anyway with gopros) and buy a used Phantom! Seriously, it is a great accessory, but rather on the expensive side, still a great buy for some. Small cranes are very cheap these days too (from 80-200$) and can achieve great motion.
  19. @gt3rs thanks for the encouraging comments! I do realize that the P4p specs are the only "useful" ones for less than 2000 euros, I am not consider using it as a highly pro drone pilot, so I am not sure the amount of money I have to spend are justified, maybe what the wise @OliKMIA said is the best option, find a cheap used one, try it for a couple of months, and then if I see I can do "great" things with it, to go for the P4p one. Your video was only a test? I was expecting a few static (tripod) shots of the place and the villa, it could have been brilliant! That place, I can die th
  20. @Elvis Peckeliunas great video dude! I have noticed that if you expose right (protect both highlights and shadows) then the results are pretty normal (I mean, very good, and you can do things in post). What Sigma is this? with what adapter? I have used the NX 30mm, and in a specific project I had 16-50pz NX, 12-140(? something big!)mm GH4 and a6300 18-105mm and the 30mm was looking like a the sum of all these lenses in price!
  21. I would like to test with the JVC LS300, if I found some time next week I will make it happen, why not for Adobe Premiere though? I don't use Resolve at all these days.
  22. @fuzzynormal I agree completely, I haven't even started because of this attitude, but I just lost a big documentary series because of that, spring time there is another big project that I may loose, or do some secondary work for it (and because the family grows, and needs feeding!), I am reconsidering my options, as for Greek TV just OK aerial shots are good enough for 75% of the productions. I have even seen some terrible stuff on air! @OliKMIA excellent summary (as @ade towell said!) and great work. Congrats! I would like to go for a NEW product, a fly a bit some SYMA drones (if yo
  23. Natively using H265 with Premiere and an old Xeon 3.4 and GTX660 PC, for bigger projects proxies work like a charm in the latest Adobe versions.
