    Stathman reacted to Andrew Reid in Canon M50 - Magic Lantern   
    Magic Lantern have hacked the Canon M50 today, in a surprise move, since it was previously thought Canon had blocked the M50 from loading any scripts.
    Features of the first version of Magic Lantern for the M50 dubbed "Hello World" include 6K RAW video (using pixel binning) and animated wallpapers.

    I had the 90mm f2. Great lens but this bad boy is just so darn affordable.
    The new firmware cleared up all bugs and as a bonus increased the focus speed.

    You need to sent a request to Fuji. You get K on your XT3.

    I did! I would like them to add white balance and focal length info if possible.
    On this clip WB was set to auto but if it is set to Kelvin it shows just "K" and not the actual value.
    I sent them a request.

    I finally figured out why I experienced problems with the LUT. An incorrect YCbCr->RGB conversion will result in values outside the 0-1 range. The LUT sees these values as 0 and 1 in Resolve, that's the reason for the inaccuracy. Premiere handles the LUT differently, there is no clamping there, and the results will be perfect, identical to using the DCTL version in Resolve. However it's possible the build a perfect LUT for Resolve as well, which will come in handy for non-Studio users. I actually built one, I plan to publish it alongside a video describing the problem in detail.

    Yes, of course you can use rcm.
    I was just following the previews posts and my point was about the correct way to apply the lut.
    You can use REC.2100 HLG as an input in rcm.

    Following @androidlad's findings i did some tests trying to decide which to choose, Flog or HLG.
    Camera Settings:
    FLOG: ISO 640 - SHUTTER 2000 - WB 5300K - F8
    HLG: ISO 1000 - SHUTTER 3200 - WB 5300K - F8
    Both shots exposed with Multi Metering aiming at 0 on the display meter.
    Here are the results:
     
    FLOG CLEAN


     
     HLG CLEAN


     
    FLOG + FUJIFILM FLOG to WDR BT.709 LUT


     
    HLG + LUTCalc HLG to ALEXA X2 LUT


     
    HLG + LUTCalc HLG Rec709 LUT


     
    FLOG + FUJIFILM FLOG to WDR BT.709 LUT + MINOR EXPOSURE ADJUSTMENTS

    Picked up the Fuji X-T3. Bribed my daughter with Maccas to model for a few minutes. No face or eye detect because i was rushing and just didn't think about it. You will see a few spots where it loses focus for a split second but if i had face tracking on at least i'm sure it would have been fine.
    Hopefully i uploaded the clip correctly.

    Stathman reacted to kye in Simulating a Tiffen Black Pro Mist filter in post   
    I quite like the look of the Tiffen Black Pro Mist filter, and thought that I could simulate the effect in Resolve.  (This conversation started in another thread but I think it deserves its own)
    My theory was that if you can simulate it in post then it's more flexible, so you can mix it in to taste, and its also cheaper, applies to all your lenses, can be applied to historic footage, etc..
    Here's the video showing what these filters do thanks to @heart0less 
     
    I've had an attempt and I'm now convinced that a completely accurate simulation is not possible.  
    To explain why, here's an unmodified screen grab:

    and here's the waveform of that shot:

    Here are the reasons you can't do a completely accurate emulation:
    The Tiffen doesn't "clip".
    The flare from the light globe is much brighter than the flare from the hair light on the blond lady, but in the "no filter" waveform you will note that these have very similar values because the globe is clipped.  Also, the flare from the globe is coloured, which presumably is from the tint of the globe, however because the waveform is clipped that colour information is lost.
    The Tiffen has a very wide flare pattern and will include lights outside the field of view.
    There don't appear to be any flares from off-camera lights in the above shot, however we can tell that the Tiffen has a very wide pattern because the level of the dark background is raised for almost the entire width of the frame but the exposure seems to be the same (by comparing the levels of the grey cards at the left of the shot).
    If you are using this filter and it is being hit with sunlight from any angle I think you'll get the influence of that everywhere in the shot, because although it might be very off-angle the sun is practically an infinitely bright light.
    However, I think we can probably make a passable attempt that might work in some situations.
    Here's the original of lady #1:

    and my simulation:

    Lady #2:

    Same simulation as above applied to lady #2:

    The logic of this preset is this:

    The Tiffen has a non-linear rolloff, so I have simulated it using blurs of two different sizes, one smaller size applied to the Highlights and a larger one applied to the Mids and Shadows.  If I really wanted to get serious about it I might try converting to a Log colour space and doing the blur in there before converting back to REC709, but that's something for another day.
    I think that preset looks pretty good for both of these shots, but unfortunately, if we apply that preset to the main shot then we see that it definitely isn't suitable for all shots:

    If I play with the levels and add a third blur that is highlights only and is even smaller radius then we get a better result, but it highlights the issues I mentioned earlier:

    If you're going to try and use this effect in post then I would suggest a number of things:
    Shoot in Log and don't clip any highlights from any colour channel If you move the camera don't have any lighting going in and out of the frame (because the effect will start and stop when it does which will look very un-natural) Experiment with applying the effect before you convert from log to any other colour space (after all, a Tiffen filter gets applied before the conversion) Experiment with different blur types - I used Gaussian Blur in the above, but maybe other types will look nicer? The Mids and Shadows processing chain is the kind of "beauty" element, and the Highlights processing chain is the "flares" element, so you can mix these to your taste I hope that is useful, and that Tiffen don't object to me using clips from their video!!

    Nice. No mention if he was filming in 4K or 1080p. 4K is much worse.
    Have a vlogger use it (it’s got a flip screen right perfectly made for it) have them film in 4K.  Whoops it’s got a 1.7x crop that even at 16-35mm will feel close. Have them walk around filming in 4K and you will feel like you are on acid in some whackey fun house mirror room every time they swing the camera to show you something.
    Take a nice ride on a train, a car, or a bus if you prefer. Film out the window in 4K. Doesn’t matter?
    Filming some birds in 4K. You track them as you pan with their flight. Enjoy the jello telephone polls, lamp posts, and trees.
    It matters.

    Stathman reacted to DBounce in Shooting with the Panasonic S1 in Barcelona   
    There are a couple sort of obvious innovations that have somehow escaped the feature list on most of the current crop of cameras. Things like IBIS that can be locked down when disabled is a big deal, and really adds to the flexibility of the camera.  If you think about it, what good is it to be able to disable the camera intelligently moving the sensor, when the other option is just having it flop about inside the camera willie nilly? It just seems a bit silly to have the disable feature without this locking capability.
    Another obvious, but absent feature is the sensor cover that is present on the new Canon EOS R. It's so nice to not have to worry about dust getting on the sensor when switching lenses. Both these features are things ALL mirrorless cameras should have as standard features.

    The sensor is still free to move around on the IBS floating mechanism even if you turn it off. If you have a GH5 test it yourself - shake the camera and you can hear the sensor moving (and watch it with the lens off).

    Huh? The RS is considerably worst than A7S (16-24ms) & A7S2 (25ms). It's known to be the absolute worst of the worst at a whopping 36ms. Possibly some kind of record.
    For the money what else are you going to buy? There are tons of second-hand options.. XT2 to start with. If you want new, save up a little more & buy yourself a decent camera.
