    There are awesome resources for colour grading and Resolve techniques out there, but they're scattered around the place, and are hard to find.  Please post anything awesome you find.
    (Note: for those that are new to Resolve or colour grading, there are lots of YT "colourists" who have very little actual knowledge.  These people provide a steady stream of bad habits, misleading and flat-out wrong information.  There are exceptions, but on the whole you should be very suspicious of people selling LUTs and pumping out video after video - most of these people are professional LUT salespeople and/or YouTubers and not professional colourists!)
    Juan Melara is excellent.  If you watch all the below you'll get a sense of how he uses Resolve, especially the Colour Space Transform plugin and which tools in Resolve are designed to work in which colour spaces.

    Magic lantern is making a lot of progress with 3K+ on the 5D mark 2!
    Seems what happened with the 5 year old mark III in 2017 is now happening with the 10 year old mark II...
    3K announcement: https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=19336.msg205638#msg205638
    Initial 4K progress (10.5 frames per second): https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=19336.msg208417#msg208417
    Initial 5K progress (6.5 frames per second): https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=19336.msg208355#msg208355
    The 5D mark II has always been limited to 30fps, but there is also some progress in getting higher framerates:  https://twitter.com/autoexec_bin/status/1048804509827452928
    The forum user reddeercity has some builds on that thread.
    I am super excited about this, even spent 100 pound on a new motherboard to fix my camera.
    Video I made using the 3K build:
    Shot in 2880x1080 resolution, Graded + converted to ProRes using MLV App (https://github.com/ilia3101/MLV-App), edited in Pitivi on linuX.
    Lenses: Jupiter 9, Helios 44, Takumar 135mm, cosina 19-35 (for one shot)
    If anyone wants an MLV or DNG or something from the video I can provide.

    Dimitris, maybe the problem is the codec you are using to export the files.
    Which codec do you use? 
    After effects has color management. Premiere doesn't. You have to create a lut for it.
    On After can go to Project Settings -> Color Settings and choose the color space you want to work.
    I have found that Rec 709 Gamma 2.4 has inconsistencies when exporting ProRes files.
    For ProRes export, working in sRGB 2.1 colour space gives me the most accurate results.

    Really nice looking piece. It should be noted that it really helps that every shot in this piece is either a sunset, silhouette, or some sort of low split light setting.
    The really great thing about the OG pocket camera is that you can get that cinematic look in the middle of the day, overcast, or even indoors. Watch this, shot with the pocket and 16mm film and you’ll see what I mean. Very vivid looking images. 
    It will be interesting to see what people will create with th new pocket. Hope I can be proved wrong.

    Watch this video and stop saying that Pocket4K is not сinematic. In the hands of the master with taste and good lenses, even the GH5 is beautiful. Otherwise, it is too early for you to have such a camera, learn to shoot first
    Shot on GH5 using Lomo anamorphic and spherical lenses (50mm roundfront and +1 +2 diopters in a few shots). Graded with FilmConvert using KD 5207 Vis3.

    Stathman reacted to DBounce in I WILL be getting a Fuji X-T3!   
    Here is some unedited footage you guys can play with. I'll be curious how you grade it. On an interesting side note discounting the wind noise, the audio in the clip is quite good and the mics are stereo. I think in a quite environment you might be able to get away with in-camera audio. I did not expect that. Honestly, I usually just mic my subject if they are speaking, but in a pinch these built in mics might work.

    Here you go, as I warned, its boring. Also was manually focusing, so I was a little slow at it.

    X-T3 in da house!
    Just a quick glimpse at the image, but I already have a feeling it's the best I've ever seen from a camera this price. Wonderful codec and detail.
    I am trying the Zhongyi SpeedMaster 35mm F0.95, which is also a positive first impressions, very clean bokeh and Noctilux-like rendering.
    I am letting that duke it out with a couple of cheap Speed Booster clones though, to see if it's worth the money over, say, a Minolta 50mm F1.4 + SB.
    Hey guess what - you can punch in to focus during 4K recording and the quality is incredibly detailed, unlike Sony.
    The EVF is better than A7 III hands down.
    I am using Film Simulation bracket-mode for stills which is right next to Movie mode on the drive lever, makes it a bit easier to switch.
    1/50 assigned to "T" on the shutter dial.
    Just waiting for my B+W vario ND to arrive.
    It will be manual focus for now as I am away from my main base with all my fuji glass back there. Will be bringing this to Photokina with me and saying to Canon "why would I buy YOUR 1.8x crop mirrorless camera"
    GH5 just got beaten I think.
    All it lacks over A7 III is a way to get the full frame look with Canon lenses at the same time as AF. There needs to be a better range of adapters!

    I'll never understand the mentality of this type of poster. If I prefer one great camera over another great camera, then it's happy days... if someone prefers a different camera, it does not detract from my own happiness.

    Why don’t you stop being an arrogant prick? You come on here sparring with the admin, trashing members’ work, behaving like you know more about sensors than god knows who. I studied photography at a top ranking school of design and worked as a photographer for a $52 billion dollar Fortune 500 company but I don’t join forums and tell the founder the camera they’re buying sucks, that Fuji is shiite and that the a7 III sensor is garbage. Why don’t you crawl back in the cave you came from?

    I am not slating the guy. K-pop videos are just not my artistic bent. I know it is the Trump-era and people are a little sensitive about criticism just like him. You can't seem to critique the work of someone these days without it coming across as you hating the living daylights of the person who made it. I certainly don't hate.
    I just like to think objectively, that something like this from me, aimed at 800,000 camera users, would have been more useful and Blackmagic would have sold more units. But what the fuck do I know?
    Maybe it needs more arses?

    Funny thing is that it's from a comparison I was doing with multiple settings. All I think look great. Also keep in mind EOSHD in this comparison is straight out of camera compared to the others using LUT's.
