    Documentary / event / general run 'n gun shooters of a certain style, it has uses for them. The Hate5Six guy, it's almost a signature thing of his imo. Though his style is still evolving and not the same for every subject. Also not that he uses Fuji...

    I think he's using the Blackmagic Micro and yeah the zoom style is his signature especially for the live show edits. I think it's to accentuate the rhythm of the songs but I love it so I'm kinda guilty on this subject 😅 nice to see another hxc fan! 

  2. Hello all,

    I'm editing C200 raw files for the first time and now I'm kinda in a pain in the ass situation.

    The total size of the files were close to 1TB, so I edited with proxies and then linked the raw files for export, all this was done on a WD Elements 4TB Desktop External Drive.

    I use a Windows 10 desktop with these specs:

    Intel Core i7 - 5820k @ 3.3Ghz

    16GB of Ram

    Nvidia GTX 960


    The project has some Boris Sapphire Plugins, plus minor Colorgrade, now the problem is that I can't just export anything at all... I was asked for a 4K export but I keep getting errors from Sapphire saying that my GPU couldn't render a certain effect and that it was going to use CPU.

    On top of that, when exporting my CPU keeps hitting 100% and GPU close to 85% on task manager.

    I tried to overclock my Nvidia but I'm afraid that it might burn.


    So the question now is, should I buy a Samsung 1TB SSD T5, migrate the project and export from that, or should I update something on my desktop?

    I'm hoping the problem is the WD hard drive that isn't capable of processing everything.


    Thanks in advance.

  3. Hello all, 

    If you had to choose 1 camera to take both photos and videos on music artists reports which one is the best choice atm?

    I have a G7 and I'm really happy with the quality of the video of course, I have a Voigtlander so low light isn't a problem for me tbh but the pictures are not that great... I can't go more than ISO 800 without getting dark areas super noisy and mushy...

    I've been considering the Sony A6500 which is APS-C (that I could speedboost with the 16-35mm or not with the 18-35mm) and bump the ISO at least to 1600 or 3200 depending but is the video quality as good as the Panasonic?

    What others options can you give me?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Yeah Im on windows, so I got no clue how to install the prores codec (Premiere/AE/resolve)on windows. Otherwise that would probably be my preferred solution.

    You can use the dnxhd codecs for windows or lagarith (uncompressed codec)

    Very nice video Ricardo, very impressive. May I ask which steady did you use?

    Also what about the jittering problem have you noticed any? Regarding the flicker I guess if I plan things right I can shoot 4k and then crop from there...

    Thanks a lot :)

    I use a Flycam Nano DSLR (which is pretty small, portable and great for the price!).

    To be honest I have never had any jittering problems and the only time my OIS is off is when I have to use a tripod. 

    What I sometimes notice (only on Steadycam) is like small "robotic" movements sorta like "gymbalish" that I know that's the OIS compensating but it's usually only when I'm sloppy on calibration.

    On handheld if you use the longest end or the ETC mode you have to have in mind that you sorta using a telephoto lens (handheld) so you might see that the OIS is stronger if you don't have steady hands.

    EDIT: Yeah if I'm doing interviews I usually go 4K for the post crops so I think you'll be fine!

  6. This is all with Lumix G7 and the 12-35mm.

    The shots that don't appear to be on steadycam are handheld (all of them) with post zoom ins and outs (plus warp stabilizer) so for me hands down on the O.I.S of this lens which is super great and probably better with Dual-OIS.

    I've almost change my mind towards the 12-35 due to all the videos I've seen as there are more examples than with the 12-40. I'm reading about this flickering problem though while zooming, is it really an issue or has been updated or there's a workaround for it? This alongside the micro jitters could be a deal breaker...

    While you zoom in with the lens there are 3 (or 4) stages throught the zoom that you see a flicker (sorta like going brighter) but only when you zooming slowly. If you plan on doing works where you have to zoom in quite slow you'll definitely see it.

  7. To be honest, I just downloaded it for free (don't want to promote piracy but I'm glad I didn't buy it) in a 2015 link and unless they re-done the LUT, it affects any color that resembles the skintones.

    Here's an example below.

    As you can see the highlights are also affected (warm +6 lut) so I still have to key the skintones if I want to change the highlights.

    This is 8 bit footage from G7 for anyone asking.

    The worst that can happen in my experience with a 5Dmkiii is nothing.

    If you ask me the old talk about reliability on the mkiii is outdated. Not once has there been any sort of issue for me that wasnt 100% my fault. 

    I sometimes get contacted by people who has had issues and it always turns out to be a cheap CF card or that they aren't using a 5Dmkiii.

    Thanks Mattias! Yeah I thought so because I see that every other problem was already addressed and resolved.

    Might take the bullet for a mkiii then, already start to selling at 1500€ here (Portugal) :)

    im afraid i cant do that Ricardo!!! I LOVE SHOOTING 5d3 RAW VIDEO. and its a KILLER STILLS CAMERA ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    this morning i loaded the latest nightly build of magic lantern (ive been busy smh) and went out for the day to shoot... with no problems whatsoever!!! magic lantern recorded continuous 1080p 24fps raw until my cf card ran out of space

    its really not hard at all once you get used to it!!! you just have to jump in the pool

    the color is stunning. what this camera does with its 12 stops is one of a kind... im thrilled with the way all of my clips look so far. i havent even figured out a workflow, but the results are ALREADY worth investing in. im SUPER STOKED 

    BUT SPEAKING OF CARDS!!!! i clearly need some!!! ?  64GB goes by really fast – what should i get???

    @kaylee Ahah yeah being a killer stills camera is also one of the reasons why I might want to return to Canon!

    1. The m4/3 mount is way better IMO to adapt many lenses
    2. Magic Lantern is not that reliable, I would not use it for sensitive work were you just "need to get the shot" But you won't shoot raw anyway in that case.

    So that's a couple of reasons, but they are not that relevant depending on what you do I guess :D

    I just ordered a KB 64Gb 1066x, I have to say, it is way more reliable than my Lexar card ! (but My lexar must be a very bad unit :s)

    @Justin BacleThanks for the reply man :D 

    1. Yeah that could be one reason but it's something I can easily live without ahah

    2. Isn't it 100% reliable right now? I really thought it was all fixed (the purple dngs and those minor fails). What's the worse it can happen while shooting?

  10. Thanks for the replies and to answer them all;

    I've got both the lens and the body at the latest firmware (it was my first thought).

    I've got the lens for about 3 or 4 years, not sure but the worst scenario I've used the lens was at the beach and I carry it all the time in my backpack. 

    To be honest I've only found out a couple months ago how the lens really worked (the focus ring transmitting information to the motor).

    I've been getting away with ETC on the 12mm end while I can't send it to Panasonic but it's a pain.

  11. Good afternoon,

    I have a Lumix 12-35mm that is right now giving me a headache and now I understand why I hate electronic lenses.

    When trying to auto-focus on other distances different from 12mm it's starts searching for focus and then stops completely all blurred out and it looks like the motor stops working because I keep pressing the shutter and it only lightens the screen (as it does to search for a focus point) but that's it. No focus changes at all.

    So I pretty much have a 12-35mm that's only good at 12mm because it's the only distance I can focus.

    Any of you had this problem with this or another lens that had to be repaired?

    Thanks in advance.

    IMO, bokeh should depend on your taking lens, all 2x Ana lens should be same.  Another consideration is the view angle has little difference from each other ana lens.

    Btw, golden lenses are more currently made, multi-coating, has good sharpness, but lack of flare.  So they are cheaper.  Black lenses may have good flare.

    I've sent you a PM Ken.

    How much is your budget?  Is flare the important factor for your consideration?

    I don't have any budget in mind. Don't want to sell a kidney of course.

    No it's not the flares (but I love them) I just love the overall image with distortion and soft corners and the out of focus area being 1000x more beautifull that with spherical lenses.
