  1. Import, culling: Photo Mechanic (works with video too). Editing: Digikam (Open Source lightroom) + Affinity photo until Serif brings their DAM or convert to DNG with Adobe DNG converter and keep using Lightroom 6 but doubling the space for your photos.
  2. The macbook pro from 2014 is still a great machine but Egpu will need Thunderbolt 3 support to work natively when it's released. Until then please, I recommend you test and be patient with FCPX, especially with 10.4 it's going to be even better and after a while, you'll be thinking why you didn't try it before. If you liked Resolve, you'll love FCPX and its lightness.
  3. I loved Nikon and want them to come back, but the more I shoot with m43 and smaller sensors I can't just stop loving the deeper DOF at similar light gathering. Not having paper-thin-pupils-focused-crap-the-subject-moved-f*ck! DOF is enjoyable at least. with a FF 50 at 0.9 they better get an AF-C eye tracking system better than a T-800 on a good day. The lens will be an eye catcher (heh) and sure people will love it but I'm doubting if it's not going to be a little of a marketing ploy, that's even if they release it. Edit to say that I hate reviewing photos and find tip of the nose -then- eyebrow portraits... And screaming freeze! doesn't help :D

    Unfortunately yes. The GH2 with a 14-140 was acting well, but the 5DII with the Tamron 24-70 2.8 was bending just a little bit. Don't use heavy setups with it. I still love it for light setups, hard to beat it.
  5. Clickbait when done well, ends in a chuckle and probably a subscribe. But it has to be supported by a good video. I like @jcs idea of alternative dialogues. -Damm stippling, I shouldn't listen to my wife. All that stippling in the ceiling. I will start with the contractor who did it. -The walls, dammit. No greenscreen use for them. Going postal now. Bring the short film now, man!
  6. I'm no Canon fan anymore but the option of putting the touchscreen with DPAF and raw at 4k 50p 10bit is enticing. I have the feeling Pana expected what we all expected, that Canon would produce a 25p 4k camera and call it a day and they were caught with the pants down and off guard. In fact, I'd rather mix the gh5 with the C200 than with the EVA.

    Yep. If @mercer is going to travel with the benro maybe it's better to think about the edelkrone. I consider the rat-rig more of a here-now thing with the gorillapod like Nitsan, always in a small bag ready to shoot.

    I'm with @Cinegain . Rat rig definitely. I have one, I'll post photos tomorrow. It won't make you win any awards but it's easy, very light and very portable.
  9. Get the Oly versions. I thought a lot about it and I've decided to get the 17 1.8 the 45 1.8 and the 25 1.8. For the Zooms Oly has a better range with the 12-40 and the 40-150. Being not stabilized means not paying for the 35-100 II defects with the IBIS. You have better control on manual focus with real rings. The GH5, being contrast detect, it's autofocus won't make a -real- big difference against natives with DFD, especially not in video anyway, as we already know and little in photo. Oly is developing too a 17 1.2 and looks like a 45 1.2 to complete the set and they'll probably too have the manual clutch. I don't find paying for PanaLeica lenses worth it until they add phase detect and no news on a 17 1.2 too. So, with the Olys you get native m43, manual clutch for video and a normal response in photo for a contrast autofocus. 1.8 are cheap. 2.8 zooms are manual "clutchable" too with better range, no issues with dual IS and, most importantly, you will always make cringe the OCDs anals who have to have everything Leica with the Pana. Sorry for my engrish today, too much work, heat, beer and Slovak got mixed.
  10. A drone chassis with a mylar balloon could look something like this. We reached the point were real and fake can easily be mistaken, so the visitors better rise up to the challenge. Older footage is difficult to fake but it's funny that when we reach the point with new technology, older one can have better explanations. The sudden turns could be explained by not having a living creature subjected to g-forces and be controlled remotely. And far distance communication could be done through an ansible thing with spooky quantum particles. Who knows, we're getting closer.
  11. I just reached the point where ISO at 6400 is enough no matter the camera I use (except my RX10II which 800 is the limit...). Would I love to be able to go higher? Maybe, but for the kind of jobs that pay my bread now, it's time to worry about other things like reliability, battery life, backup security, stealthiness and weight. Just saying . EDIT: I didn't know that jabroni thing, but it's so easy to say it looks it will enter very quickly my vocabulary. Looks like an adult version of the smurf word. Kind of catchy...
  12. If you want 4k 60p go with the pana. Anything else the Olympus at that price is a steal. If you're talking about V-log just shoot Oly's flat profile and be mindful is 8bit and not so gradable, but colors overall are beautiful. If you plan to get the look in camera you have a great deal in your hands. The only thing missing is video backup to the second card but that's personal preference. I would take it if I got an offer like this.
  13. Lol man, no, I wouldn't suggest that. Why use a hammer when you can use a lock pick! I have read the original post and you were commenting on getting rid of the FS5 but didn't comment that you had the a6500, man, you're already covered, I know 4k 60p is nice but it can wait at least a year I guess. Maybe get some apsc sony lenses, they're pretty cheap and at 1.8 you get a nice AF and DOF. For the price of the GH5 you could get the 10-18 f4 and the 24 1.8 the rest are cheap good priced lenses.
  14. That is so correct, sigh. Lol, each camera has its purpose. FS5 for client confidence a6500 for the rest. Maybe you are suffering GAS
  15. Yes they do. The same as Smartphones replaced Motos and Nokias. Believe what you want. Just some quotes from very interesting articles: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/9aknpv/how-solar-power-could-slay-the-fossil-fuel-empire-by-2030 https://www.mnn.com/green-tech/transportation/blogs/horses-horsepower-rocky-transition Of course you can say that DSLRs are not mobiles or horses, but hey, I would stop lying to yourself. fifteen years, that will take more or less and we're already halfway there.
