  1. ...but it is a first impression. And it is quite comprehensive... Anyway, I'm excited by this camera.
  2. Great news. Can anyone comment, for a non-user of the pocket 4K, how BRAW stacks up against ML raw in the grade? Apologies if google would give me the answer.
  3. I really don't understand why apple dropped Aperture. It's still faster than the latest Lightroom and hasn't been updated for years. They have music, film but no pro photo software. @pbetancourt Agree about FCPX. I decided to go back to Premiere for a project (for the dynamic link with AE) and it's like using a relic. They have the features but they're wrapped in a horrible user experience.
  4. Lately I've been missing Aperture- not for the image processing results but for the workflow and interface. For me its more intuitive and faster than Lightroom. I started looking for Lightroom alternatives and so far I haven't found anything better, but more importantly anything close to what I liked about Aperture. I haven't test-driven everything, though. Hope there's an alternative or someone makes one leaning towards Aperture design- Lightroom is clunky and slow.
  5. Thats what people listen to the most and what happens when they don't listen to the ones who know.
  6. Awesome tech. Just curious if a version might/could possibly someday make its way to cameras like the Canon 5D III?
  7. Kind of correct but in practice not in my experience. I thought that until I had to work with 1000's of raw images that all needed white balance adjustment but different for different lighting and some not needing adjusting at all- so no select all and change in one go. If it can be engineered to be correct 100% of the time, it saves on your post time.
  8. Hoping they update firmware for the S with all they can from this. Glad I have the S due to payload capacity. I relatively recently bought the S, can anyone tell me if its in DJI's DNA to add features in firmware? Or are they more of a Canon-type company?
  9. I get the impression Sony's success was due to fully jumping on mirrorless and the engineering advantages followed- like a smaller, nostalgic body and EVF. I'm not so sure they innovated per-se and thus didn't know their own products well enough to improve them in the areas that were lacking. Ha, you did a lot of the hard work for me then! I used ProColour on a 10 minute short to mix the A7s better, well worth the cost. TBH the other clincher was the complete lack of latitude in the grade. If you pushed it a little hard the image fell apart. I think that's what makes using it so sweet. You get this very tangible sense that you're using this amazing technology to the fullest and not some artificially limited feature list. The only limits of ML are the limits of the camera. I think most have a lot wrong and it is simply down to the drive for money. Nothing wrong with earning money at all- but put it above everything else and it corrupts.
  10. I follow the Sony A7 line news out of curiosity but, after owning an A7s II cannot consider them again. The argument of colour improving over time is crazy- why not take longer and get the colour science right- why should I wait multiple years, buying 4 generations of cameras to maybe get accurate colours? I sold my A7s II for the horrid colour alone. The tipping-point was after doing extensive research to grade its video when the best solution I could find was to take a damn canon camera on set for reference photos- and match the Sony to the canon. I mean at that point what's the point? I was, like others, bamboozled by the immense specs of their A7s II. But you can throw the ingredients of a delicious meal into a pot- it's how you prepare them that matters. I am really not a fan of using paying users feedback to improve products- just use the things yourselves and release a well-rounded, considered product. The mark 3 versions of the A7 look much better than my s II, but I will not give them my money to be a member of a focus group for a future version of the product. Also- no thanks to those menus- do they even use them themselves? Wish I tried Magic Lantern before buying the A7s II, would have saved a lot of time.
  11. @hyalinejim - Can't thank you enough for your Cinelog recommendation and the script.
  12. Wow. What I also don't like is the idea that it's ok for advertisers to bombard us everywhere we go, but we're not allowed to photograph it. So, they can fill our mind-space with their products to make money- but we would not be legally allowed to record it ourselves. That's like a one way street.
  13. Great news. I thought canon were finally blocking them from new cameras(?)
  14. After some research on a film, data does indeed have a weight. All the data of the internet weighs about the same as a strawberry On topic- After Magic Lantern on the 5dIII, raw/prores on this camera coupled with Black Magic's focus for a professional tool makes my next camera purchase easier to decide.
