  1. Will be available via their Shopify site and Amazon late April
  2. Well I think this new portkeys monitor is what many people (including me) have been asking for. Nice price for all the features.
  3. I think this lens was made for you @kaylee? https://www.43rumors.com/new-redcat-250mm-f-4-9-lens-from-william-optics-also-for-mft/?fbclid=IwAR04T5Ef-0eCSvbdWTZLbbynG89wqbmwtpH5mkODWTGMGbjVVZtNrDVabQY
  4. Redshark preview https://www.redsharknews.com/production/item/6142-fran-8k-cinema-camera-here-s-a-long-awaited-hands-on-preview-of-cinemartin-s-large-format-device?fbclid=IwAR3FuJkfHMnQWmswSN3feq21R9Q2iSNOKeVyTisXRuHfjLEsjPNbZy8XW4A they conclude with In short, Fran is not finished, which, again, the company accepts. Other camera manufacturers have probably taken orders for cameras which were less finished than this one. Even so, it's rather unusual to have started talking about reviews at this very early stage. It's fine for manufacturers to send out early versions of products with known issues highlighted as a work in progress. That's done all the time, and should continue. Fran, though, is really in a very elementary condition, with some serious issues, such as the very slow user interface. There is no XLR audio, no timecode, no SDI, no EF lens control, no LUTs, no genlock, no full-rate playback of high resolution material. There's much that's right about the camera-as-a-platform model, especially running a popular OS with good development tools, but, to be charitable, Fran is a lot of work away from realising the benefits of that approach.
  5. Yeah, should do the trick. Could power both the monitor & camera that way.
  6. looks like a decent solution @Anaconda_ I wonder if the tilta npf baseplate would do the job? If only they could release the bloody thing haha!
  7. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07L8BYLT1/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A2VQ8T9VUGOKVX&psc=1 Anyone used this? Looks pretty good!
  8. I wouldn't recommend using a monitor to power your p4k, it could potentially burn out your monitor and camera. Tom Antos killed two monitors trying to power the pocket 4k via dummy battery from dc out...
  9. I should've said that the monitor could become popular with pocket 4k owners. ?
  10. If you want a proxy then sure it would be a great fit... but how many users want that? The video assist is still great but I think a lot of users would take the 1000 nits and smaller profile of the Atomos over the assist!
  11. I guess they've gone after people that would want the ninja v with the pocket 4k... (obviously don't need the recorder). Really in terms of price; I think under £350 would have been great but it still is unbeatable a this price! couldn't agree more, seriously. People would be hot on a great evf, with less than zacuto prices ?
  12. https://***URL not allowed***/atomos-shinobi-priced-ninja-recorder/ https://cvp.com/product/atomos-ao-atomshbh01-shinobi-hdmi-5in-monitor looks decent. Cheaper body but very similar features for around £400 (no recorder) 1000nits, 427 ppi 5 inch. Monitoring FeaturesLuma Waveform, RGB parade, RGB Overlay, Vectorscope, Vectorscope Zoom, Histogram, RGB Histogram, Anlaysis mode (Multiview scopes: Waveform, Histogram, Vectorscope), Focus Peaking, Zebra, False Colour, Blue Only Exposure, Zoom (1:1, 2:1, 4:1), SMPTE Safe Areas, Cinema Guides, Anamorphic Desqueeze The new multi tool 'analysis' seems like a great feature. It simultaneously shows the image, plus waveform, histogram, vectorscope and audio-level meters. In addition, there are multiple options inside each of these tools. This gives the operator a complete picture of what is going on within the image, at any time
  13. New Pocket 4k Update https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support/readme/878cd30c9aea48b1924f99c741e9af09 Added support for pixel remapping in camera. Added 2:1 monitoring frame guide.

Fixed an issue where some batteries might shut off earlier than expected. Fixed an issue where low battery indicator is not displayed appropriately.

  14. Very nice! Makes me want to rewatch Breaking Bad haha!
  15. The XT3 looks even more appealing now. Oh dear Olympus!
  16. He used the 12-35 f2.8 and SLR magic 17mm only! Impressive!
  17. This film was posted on the P4k FB group earlier. WOW. By DAVE HILL https://vimeo.com/304999893?fbclid=IwAR2eii51lO2jPHV0mQj1JmhplQRhKhp0YYaO_FHc2jEpYXe8KicJKm53PYo
  18. have a look at this mate! Also here is the document for the dvx200, which should be very similar to gh5 in terms of V-LOG! http://pro-av.panasonic.net/en/dvx4k/pdf/ag-dvx200_tech_brief_vol6_en.pdf
