  1. APS-C is still alive? Hopeful for some "pro" RF-S lenses in the future to pair with the C70. For now.. we a 7k oversampled 4k image on the R7 with uncrossed 4k at 60fps. Clog3 and no time limit. Wonder if the IBIS is less "wobbly" with the smaller sensor...

    Olympus OM-1

    Based on what I'm seeing with GH6, it seems OM-1 will still have better autofocus for video. All of this complaining would be over if Panasonic just ate dirt and put phase detect on their cameras. So annoying they won't be humble and just admit that DFD is not good enough for video hybrid shooters. That being said, I still love my Olympus bodies and there is something about it that I can't escape. I love the feel of the camera, I enjoy their color science, and the micro 4/3 lens ecosystem is just a wonderful thing. It's not necessarily smaller than full-frame now with the compact lenses for E-mount...but the overall balance of the whole package on micro 4/3 is something I truly enjoy. Planning on selling my EM1 mkii and mkiii and buying the OM-1 when it goes on sale in 6 months.
  3. I'd go with the new ZV-E10! Compact size. Fair price. Amazing autofocus and a clean image.
  4. That's awesome man! They are great cameras but they aren't for everyone. You have to work with its limitations for sure. I really love using it for casual shooting and pictures of the kids... but when I was at Indy Mogul, we used it as the A cam for many of the shoots I was a part of!
  5. couldn't agree more about the EM1X. I still use my EM1 mkii and mkiii every week. Don't see myself switching to anything anytime soon either. I really hope Olympus will have something great again soon to upgrade this.
  6. I freaking love that lens and it's a gorgeous pair with the EM1 as well! Used it as my primary lens for a while on the Olympus bodies. Just a bit big for everyday carry (which is all i need these days). Been using my 15mm f1.7 pancake on the EM1 mkiii for all my photography of the kids these days.
  7. Your article made me miss shooting on my 1DC! LOL. I do have the C70 now and find it to be pretty solid. Need to dust off my 1DC and send it in to canon to fix it. Battery fried something in it a while ago.
  8. Bringing life back to this thread. I use my mkiii daily. It’s my primary camera. Love it for hybrid shooting with those f1.2 primes. Still haven’t tried the new prores raw feature. Really incredible they added that. im just a bit scared for the future of the company. I really hope to see a new camera with updated specs like better EVF and newer sensor this year. We’ll see if the new owners handle it well.
  9. Anyone have experience with the metabones speed booster for c70? Work good enough?
  10. Incredible interview @Andrew Reid!! Thank you for coming on!
  11. Hey guys! I’m about to interview our very own @Andrew Reidon my podcast Golden Hour! Reply with any questions you have for him and I’ll try to get them in the show!
  12. let me know your thoughts! i found after making the vid that the magenta issues are more or less solved if you shoot slog2 instead
  13. go ahead... tell me how stupid i look in this thumbnail.
  14. I still have an em1mkiii and the three Pro prime lenses. It’s a buggy camera and I’ve had issues with it locking up on me. I’ve stopped using it for that reason. Hopefully firmware will solve those issues. I think Panasonic made a bad move going to full frame. They should have just embraced m43 and dominated the space and that in turn would help boost Olympus. With cameras like the XT3 being only $999 now I don’t see a point in the Oly anymore. The ibis and colors are great but low light is bad and video features are lackluster. Maybe we will see some firmware updates that will add more video features... but for the price... I don’t see why anyone would go for the EM1 anymore. Not to mention the EM1X. That camera is way too expensive. I don’t know... just my thoughts. Loved Olympus for a while. Still love them... but it’s starting to seem a little outdated at this point.
  15. All the Oly Pro primes are amazing. I recommend the 17,25, and 45
  16. I have had about a week with the camera and seriously LOVE it! Totally sold on it. The footage out of this thing is incredible.
  17. lol no offense taken. I understand. I’ve texted this myself and statistically I get higher click through rate when my face is on the thumbnail as well as when there is a more intense expression. It doesnt translate well here because the image is so large... but on a youtube home feed it can help make your video stand out. Correct it works. I’m sorry you hate it. YouTube is filled with a bunch of adhd tweens who just click on the first shiny thing they see. Ya it really is. It gives you a lot of extra flexibility for a marginal difference in price.
  18. I actually helped develop this mic over a year ago when I had a meeting with Andrew from Deity. I was sharing how I really hated how muffled audio sounded when talking behind camera for vlogs. I wanted a solution and they delivered. Not only does the mic have two mics on it... but you get an input that allows for a lav or other audio source to feed into your camera or recorder. The Rode Wireless GO is perfect for it and can clip right onto the Rycote mount. Just wanted to share these vids with you guys. Jeven and I are the only people who have posted hands on reviews so far... IDK if we are the only ones who got them or what... but this $89 mic is well worth the $$ in my opinion.

    RED Komodo

    I'm so stoked to see these hit the wild! I wanna get one asap! Gotta come up with $7k tho
  20. well dangit @Andrew Reid ... guess we won't be able to drink sake all night this year then.
  21. ya exactly. watch time. yup. my agent goes to square space and says: “i got 10 guys who all will work with you for $X” and then he splits that money up to all of us depending on our size
  22. I still don’t have clarity... does the EM1 mkiii output 10bit 4:2:2 out of the HDMI? I would imagine that if they are saying it in the official “brochure” from Olympus it is true no?
  23. I literally haven't heard the 10bit 4:2:2 spec anywhere! That is a big deal!!
  24. i'm gonna upgrade to it from my em1 mkii for that joy stick lol. i love the camera. its just a good tool that i enjoy...especially for family photos and videos. HOWEVER... i am SOOO dissapointed here. Was hoping to at least see 4k 60fps!!! idk whats going on. so stupid. nobody will buy this except olympus enthusiasts. it should really be called the EM1 mk2.5
  25. ya if i didn’t have an agent by now i’d be looking for one. almost everyone has one at higher levels. i share an agent with kai w, jarad poland, gerald undone, and jeven dovey for example.
