  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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???
  4. Sony A7R III announced with 4K HDR

  5. Canon M50 mirrorless camera features 4K video

    This is very sad. A catastrophe for Canon. They continue to disappoint.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

    Andrew, do you still sell your NX1 manual?

    Screen grabs from a7sii footage---Pro color 3.0 XR out of the camera, only slight exposure corrections

  14. External recording on the Sony a7S mark 2

    Yes. Me neither. I called the Atomos tech who helped me earlier and told him about the HDMI 4K issue. He said it must have been some impedance difference that was causing it. It matters not. What matters is knowing about this in purchasing a mini-4k HDMI to standard HDMI cable. Try before you buy if possible. Not sure you can tell by cost. The one that worked on the Canon but not on the Sony was a bit more expensive and more robust in build. So...beauty is only skin deep it seems.
  15. External recording on the Sony a7S mark 2

    Hi, everyone, and thanks for contributing to help me solve my issue. I talked to Atomos today, and after a bit of back and forth the guy asked me to check my HDMI cable--and see if it worked for 4k. Now this seemed futile to me, because I KNEW it did. But I pulled out my XC15 Canon to test the cable and BOOM, the Shogun was recording 4k like a top!! Back to the Sony--Bupkis. But I did recall I had another micro HDMI cable, so,..... just for laughs I decided to try it--and BLAM!!! The Shogun screen lit up with the Sony 4 K and I was recording on SSDs. So, here's the deal. Just because a mini or micro HDMI feeds 4k into your external recorder for one camera or brand of camera does not mean it will feed 4 k into another. Capisce?!? Try to remember this...because it will be on the test.
