    ReinisK got a reaction from kaylee in Filming from a helicopter   
    I've filmed from a moving boat, not a helicopter. I would think it's similar to a helicopter, but harder, depending on the waves.
    On a boat, a gimbal is a must. If you have a good gimbal, then ibis is not so important, but definitely welcome. GH5 has a better ibis, than the a7mk3, as far as I know, haven't done a direct comparison though.
    If I would have to do this, I would definitely get a good gimbal. If there really is a risk, that the gimbal might just stop working, then GH5 for sure because of the better ibis.

    I’ve always wanted to film a racing movie, I guess you could say i’m practicing. For profiles I think the Gh5 was set to the natural profile and then I used a combination of filmconvert and a couple little exposure and color tweaks per shot

    This looks so cinematic to my eye!
    I don't know if it's because of the unique event, location, live sound, good compositions or what else, but at least half of the shots definitely look like out of some car racing movie. Very nice
    I see you've shared the lenses used, but what about picture profiles and your grading settings?

    ReinisK got a reaction from Juxx989 in NX1 Extended Dynamic Range? New Settings.   
    I've done some tests today. The camera was set to UHD, 25p, Gamma DR, -5 contrast, -7 sharpness, 16-235, sRGB. I compared different ISOs with and without RGB set to max (1.99). 
     
    So what I found out:
    All RGB channels at 1.99 increase exposure by 1 stop (or very, very close to it);
    Therefore ISO 1600 with RGB at 1.99, is the same exposure as ISO 3200 with RGB at 1;
    It positively affects the inbuilt noise reduction. Seems like the NR really is triggered by ISO value and not the actual sensor gain;
    It doesn't have any visible gains in highlights.
     
    Here's the test. The password is - rgb .

    Thank you all especially @Happy Daze  for investigation. I have concluded for myself that boosting RGB values is similar to highering ISO values but it makes sense that this way can help reduce noise reduction that is probably higher on ISO 1600 and above ( @ReinisK  video).
    But I have test it and found out that details in shadows are higher with lower RGB values but downside is the highlights are clipped because of longer shutter speed (unfortunately it does not work as digital ND filter). So maybe RGB x1.0 is still best compromise. But I still do not understand it... 
    NOTE: Images grabbed from video directly in NX1
    0-255, ISO100, RGB x1.99 on the left; RGB x0.50 on the right (just longer exposure to compensate loss of brightness).
    You can see more details on the ground and clipped highlights on the sky on the right (OK, I know it seems to be clipped on the left, but there completely no details on the right - just solid grey...)


     
    0-255, ISO100, RGB x1.00 on the left; RGB x0.50 on the right (look on the bush and grass - they are more detailed). On the otherside white wall looks worse to me on the right (RGB x0.50) image. But maybe it is not so bad... I do not know...


    So maybe lower RGB values means more details in dark and complex areas but as downside - DR is is lower.

    Thus is definitely worth looking at. I've done a few tests in even lighting. Can't say anything about the DR improvement, but it certainly increases exposure by about 1 stop. 
    Someone asked for a boosted max iso hack. So there you go :D
    Also, maybe there's a chance that it would have a positive effect on noise reduction. Like if the NR kicks in at 2000iso, you could use 1000iso instead for thr same exposure and not get the NR. That's just a thought for now.

    ReinisK got a reaction from Matthew Hartman in NX1 Extended Dynamic Range? New Settings.   
    Interesting results. I watched the video on my phone, so could be wrong, but there are a few things I want to say.
    You defined highlight clipping only by looking at the scopes, but I would say, that if you compare the first and the last test, it's visible, that the hanging leaves on the tree have less detail in the last shot, than in the first one.
    I'm saying, that maybe even if the scopes are not at 100%, the highlights are still blown. For a better test, I would suggest looking at highlights and shadows together, and look closely at the detail in them (basicaly, analyze highlights the same as you did with the shadows).

    ReinisK got a reaction from pryde in NX1 Flat image, closer to C-Log   
    Exactly what Happy Daze said. The blacks ar not crushed, Premiere Pro is just viewing the footage that way.
    To get rid of this, select the 16-235 luminance setting in camera, not 0-255.
    If I remember correctly, the easiest way to get Premiere to 'see' the blacks (and also highlights, which are shown as blown-out, but actually aren't), would be to set output values in fast color corrector to 16 for blacks and 235 for highlights. You could also use RGB curve and lift the left end (blacks) and lower the right end of the curve (whites), while keeping the curve line straight.
    As to getting flatter image - I see you're using normal gamma with -4 contrast. Gamma DR with the same settings would definitely be flatter. Black level adjustment though, also gives flatter image, but I don't use it.
    When I plan to grade the footage, I use Gamma DR, -5 contrast and -2 saturation. With -10 contrast the image can get weird, and you have to perfectly nail WB, to not get weird colors.

    Hey! Recently I did a Promo video for a XCO bicycle race, and the intro was shot using my DIY'ed anamorphic adapter from the 35nap 2-3.
    I'm pretty excited about the image I can get with it. The adapter though still needs some work to be a bit more precise in lens alignment, and of course some solution to double focus would be awesome. But for projects, where I have time, I'd try and shoot with it the next time also. Probably a bit too much color effects in the intro to fully enjoy the anamorphic image, but it still shows through.

    I was thinking about moving to Resolve, some time ago, but it didn't have some of the features I needed for editing. Premiere is unstable sometimes, but Resolve just didn't offer the features. I'm intereseted if it does now. I'd really appreciate if someone could give ma an answer about these things:
     
    1. Does Resolve have decent audio features like compressor, limiter, expander?
    2. Does Resolve have saveable presets of effects, which can be dropped on clips anytime?
    3. Customizable keyboard shortcuts?
    4. Customizable window layout?
    5. Maybe keyboard shortcuts for applying effects or effect presets? (Premiere doesn't have this afaik, would be a very welcome feature for me)

    Shot on Samsung NX1, gamma DR, sharpness -10, UHD 25fps. Canon FD 50 f1.4 @ f2. Cropped sides and most shots stabilized, also added a bit of contrast with curves.
    Probably didn't have a perfect alignment of the lenses, but I think it was close. Now need to make a better mounting. Will post some pics of the setup too.

    Hello guys!
    I'm new to anamorphic adapters, have never really looked into these things, but a week ago I saw a 35nap 2 3 projector lens on sale on a local advertisement site, and after a quick research I decided to take it home. It's huge and since I like to have my gear as small as possible, this didn't make me happy. But ok.
    First thing I did was take it apart, to have only the lenses, so I could focus closer than 9m. Then I mounted the lenses on my rail system somehow, and tried to test the quality. The mounting system was quite bad, first results were not very encouraging, and I almost gave up on it. The picture was quite soft and of course the experience with double focus is not the best too.
    Then I made a somewhat more stable mounting for the lenses so I could align them better. The front lens though is lower than taking lens and rear anamorphic element, but it seems, that it's nowhere near as important to align them vertically as to align the lenses horizontally (and also correct rotation), which immediately gives a sharper image.
    I did the aligning using a Canon FD 70-210 f4 set at 200mm f4. It really helped to use such a narrow FOV to get critical sharpness. With the current setup though at 200mm f4 it's not very usable, but stopping down or using a wider FOV increases the sharpness, and once I got the best sharpness at 200mm, the sharpness with 35mm lens was just amazing.
    All I can say is - I love the image and I'm really looking forward to making a nice mounting system for the setup. The image is supersharp and it seems like that all across the frame. I even couldn't believe it at first. I did this test with Samsung NX1 and Canon FD 35 f2. There were black sides though with this setup, but those can be cropped off.
    Will post pictures with the setup soon and definetely some video examples.
    The squeeze ratio seems to change very much depenting on the focus distance. 1m and below does squeeze the image a lot less than further distances. How do you cope with it?

    ReinisK got a reaction from lucabutera in Petition for Samsung NX1 hack   
    Actually ML had two kinds of HDR. 
    The older one called HDR video was recording whole frames at different exposures. One frame at iso 100, the other at 1600, for example.
    Then came Dual ISO mode (if I remember correctly it was only for raw video). This mode recorded every line of pixels at different iso values, like Kinoseed wrote. 
    But if talking about the first way, which is HDR video, wouldn't it be possible to write a script that would change the shutter speed or iso for every frame?
