  1. Does anyone think Fuji will get into this game? I can imagine their color science in FF.

    Fast apertures on the GH5 = Full frame

    Andrew, thank you so much for the article. This is significant for me, since shooting is a real weight issue, and the M4T lenses and camera systems are the sine qua non when it comes to weight. I tried to replicate your test and it worked great....but I did it with the following: The g85, EF to MFT speed booster, and three different Rokinon T1.5 cinema lenses. I'll say the test makes me reconsider the GH5. I have no idea just how much light a Rokinon cine lens plus metabones speed booster yields, but it's plenty for sure---adding a variable ND filter for outside shooting would open up marvelous possibilities. So, here's are my questions: 1. what differences in video shooting would there be between the Voigtlander 0.95 lenses and the Rokinon cine lenses+ speed booster? 2. Do you think the combination of the metabones speed booster plus rokinon cine lenses would be a viable alternative to using the Voiglander lenses? Presently I own the 24, 35, 50, and 85. Sorry my questions are perhaps a bit muddles. Can you make enough sense of them to give a response?

    New EOSHD Pro Color 3.0 and EOSHD Pro LOG comes to Sony cameras

    Just shot and edited this using EOSHD pro color 3.0--modified using cine 4 to get a bit better dynamic range. Editing in FCPX using Color Finale.

    Canon C200 RAW and FCPX 10.4.1

    Googled a LOT of stuff, but nothing was helpful about FCPX RAW. And Google is not really my friend---or yours.

    Canon C200 RAW and FCPX 10.4.1

    I understand FCPX has been upgraded to edit RAW files. When I tried RAW from my C200 FCPX crashed. What is the work flow to edit RAW in FCPX?

    Blackmagic color

    Thank you all for your responses. They are very helpful to me. I'm very comfortable with grading and see that as no concern to me. What appeals to me is the size of the camera, the Pro Res (I edit with FCPX), and of course it's image capability. I really wish the sensor was super 35 but MFT is not, in and of itself, a deal breaker.

    Blackmagic color

    Jon, I've seen a few videos, but not any direct comparisons. Frankly, the larger Blackmagic cinema cams are not interesting to me. But a smaller cam would be great---as long as the color science is workable. I get good results with Canon--I was just never satisfied with the skin tones with Sony and Panasonic---probably my lack of editing and grading skill.

    Blackmagic color

    With all the hoopla about the new Blackmagic I want to ask opinions on EOSHD about how good their color science is. I've never use Blackmagic myself, so I'm really curious. I tried the GH5---and really didn't like a WHOLE lot of things about it. So, how would you compare Blackmagic color to Canon--Panasonic---Nikon---fer instance???

    Canon M50 mirrorless camera features 4K video

    This is very sad. A catastrophe for Canon. They continue to disappoint.

    Canon C200 browser remote---help!

    Love Canon cameras--Canon manuals make me crazy. They're the most convoluted, incoherent bunch of garbage! Does anyone know where a simple explanation of how to use the browser remote for the C200? I do a lot of one man band shooting, and controlling the C200 from my iPad would be very helpful in so many way.

    New EOSHD Pro Color 3.0 and EOSHD Pro LOG comes to Sony cameras

    This is mainly a test to see how well the A7rIII does when shooting in manual mode, using manual shutter, aperture, focus, but in auto ISO---with limits being 100 to 6400.

    Sony A7R III review - the BBC fixed Sony's colour!

    Just for fun I shot this on New Years eve---using Canon FD lenses: light, inexpensive, good---3 axis stabilization---what's not to like.

    GFILM: An easily graded Flat Profile for Sony Cameras

    Me too. But no skin was available. I need to refine my sense of how to expose this pic profile, but I think it's really, really good and easy to grade--even when you don't expose it perfectly. Someone, unlike me, who actually knows what they're doing might produce something really lovely with this.
