  1. GH5S low light is better than C100 mkii Honestly, I disagree with you guys. The GH5/5S are video cameras trapped in a stills form factor. Only thing missing is the built in ND. You get XLR and TIMECODE which the C100 doesnt even have. If 1080p is all you need, there is a 10bit option (which the C100 doesnt have) ONLY reason I still shoot on 1DC is because there isn't any full frame stills camera that also gives me AT LEAST 8bit 4:2:2 4k internally.
  2. Finally got our Ronin-S review finished! Really loving this gimbal. Although....at the end of the day, if you have an extra operator, the MoVI with all the FIZ control is going to be better. The Ronin-S is a Z Crane killer.
  3. I’d say no to the c100 mkii today. It’s too big. Under performer. Much better options. Gh5s comes to mind.
  4. I own a 1DC and have used the HDMI out before in 4k mode and it really does look great. Better than a C100 for sure and its APS-H instead of S35 so you get a little more room with your lenses. I will say however, if you either convert all your footage to ProRes, or you edit on an iPad Pro......the 4K MJPG can be dealt with. By the way, an iPad Pro can play 4k MJPG files like its nothing in LumaFusion

    I just went to THE VOID in downtown Disney in California two days ago and MAN IT WAS LIFE CHANGING!! The VR + interactive nature of it was truly magical. I cant believe it. Cant recommend it enough to anyone who has an opportunity to go https://www.thevoid.com/dimensions/starwars/secretsoftheempire/
  6. Exactly. the implementation here is incredible. When shot properly, the M50 4k is REALLY nice. This entire video was shot on the M50 in 4k (with the exception of the ending which was 1DC)
  7. Like new 11-22 for ef-m! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F113072642162
  8. This is the adapter I used in the review! $300 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F113073129875 Here’s the review: CANON FULL FRAME 4K MIRRORLESS?! - EF-M Speed Booster Review https://youtu.be/cIcbU6aznNk

  10. I’m selling my speed booster that we used in the speed booster video. So if you want it... hit me up. $300 + shipping. Email me: dave@davealtizer.com
  11. Canon rumors released some specs on the new G7X III and M5 II. I'm most excited to see what they do with the M5. The M5 is supposed to be a higher end camera from the M50...but the M50 is so so good IMO. If they have 4k with DPAF and no crop...now we're talking. That new sensor paired with the Digic 8 might allow that to happen. My thoughts are maybe at VidCon Canon will release the G7X Mark III. It's the perfect "vlogger" camera and would be a nice splash in the market coming off the trails of the Sony RX100 6. We are going to VidCon next week so I will let you know if anything happens there. Here are the specs from Canon Rumors: EC804 – Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark III 4.2x Zoom 1″ sensor DPAF 4k Video (no DPAF) GPS This camera features a new Canon 1″ sensor EC811 Canon EOS M5 Mark II 28.3MP APS-C mirorless camera 4K@30fps video and DPAF. This camera features a new Canon APS-C sensor http://www.canonrumors.com/are-these-the-next-canon-cameras-to-be-announced-cr1/
  12. I don't know why nobody makes a wide angle zoom point and shoot. I'd love a G7X or RX100 with a 16-35mm equiv and I think a ton of vloggers would as well.
  13. Here’s my video review on the speed booster I got from a previous thread. Just posting here so we don’t have multiple M50 threads. Speed booster really solves the issues with the 4K crop. I wish Metabones would make an “XL” version for EF-M so it takes the 4K crop to proper super35. But still, the .71x isn’t too bad.
  14. I did some tests comparing my 1DC to the M50 in 4K. In the video, you can see that the 1DC in 4K actually has better rolling shutter performance. Also, to my eye...the 1DC has an advantage in overall image quality. More richness and color information in the files. It also seems a bit sharper as well. HOWEVER, with a speed booster, the M50's 4K is usable, and if anything, will serve as an excellent B camera for interviews. The rolling shutter in 4K is probably so bad that I wouldn't recommend it for gimbal shots. But as you can see in the test, using the FCPX rolling shutter fix plugin, it stabilizes it fairly well. I'm hoping a true full frame 4k mirrorless camera comes from Canon soon!
  15. No. I hate using touch screens for interfacing.
  16. I can vouch for that. The manual focus by wire is linear so it’s much much easier to do
  17. How much would you pay for Digital Bolex...ProRes raw!!!?!?!
  18. One thing that I wish the canon cinema series had that stills cameras have is Auto ISO. I know it’s not a “pro” feature but it’s so usable for run and fun shooting. Wish the C100/200/300 had that.
  19. 100%. I have had these conversations with YouTube consultants. This is true. VR, 4k at 60fps, EVERYTHING YouTube is offering you need to prioritize that for analytics advantage.

    Was planning on going but couldn’t make it! Enjoy!
  21. I guess that Rokinon 12mm f2 and the upcoming Laowa 9mm f2.8 EF-M would be a better option. Both will work at APSC and 4K.
  22. 1080p is good for sure but it’s not any better than all the other canon dslrs and the 5dmk4 1080p and super35 1080p on 1DC are in a different class than that really. 4k is where it’s at. Perfect happy medium. It’s not mind blowingly sharp like GH5 but it’s really usable and runs so smooth on my base model MBP. It’s a shame the rolling shutter is so so bad. I’m putting the camera in a cage to add some weight and make me use it more like a real camera. I think once you add the weight and stuff it’s usable. I want to try the c-mount veydras on it. I feel like those would be amazing on the m50 crop. Also, what wide lenses actually work on it? @mercer can you give me a list of those 1” c-mounts you keep talking about?
