  1. Hi,

    I use Gh5s on ronin sc.  It is extremely comfortable to trigger/stop recording with a button on Ronin SC.

    I would like to add Atomos recorder to this combo.  Can you start recording on Ninja via button on Ronin SC?   This is a key aspect influencing my purchase decision.

    Google confirms only that you can trigger recording on Ninja via button on camera itself.

    Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

    Gimbals then....

    I'd like to get one for the fp that isn't going to totally undermine the whole ethos of it being tiny so I'm not going to be putting this on my Ronin S and so I'm looking for something as compact as possible.

    In terms of weight (almost identical with battery) and dimensions, the fp is probably closest to the Sony a6500.

    Looking around, the Crane M2 would seem to fit the bill as it seems quite popular with the A6500 and as I'd be using small M mount lenses like the Voigtlander 21mm or even the 15mm then it will be under the payload rating.

    Does anyone have any experience of it on the fp or in general before I waste my money on it ?

    I had crane m2 and returned it.  It was extremely difficult to balance (even iPhone pro and gx85), because of its small arms. Subsequently, I purchased Ronin SC and have no problems with balancing.

    This is not me !! I'm based in the UK my production company is busy with feature films. 

    Dear Andy,

    welcome back!  Hope you are well.  If possible, please share your new experience and findings.

    I guess he's moved to the Sony A Series from Panasonic. He was baking the colours into the Panasonic G7, on the last shoot we heard about (in 2016-17). He's been doing travel videos, from what I can guess. 

    Thank you for your reply.  Andy was a great source of k-h.  Do you have any link to his new travel videos and finalised shot we heard about in 2016-17?  I could not google it up.

    The f1.2 will have a firmware update late in 2017 to make it Dual IS 2  compatible. 

    Dear Philip,

    thank you for good news.  Do you have any official roadmap were this information stems from.

    Thank you.

    And yes, I'm planning to shoot some video to try and see what we can do with this camera, hopefully in the next few weeks.  Let me know if you have any ideas ;-)



    Dear John,

    In your prospective test please distinguish when you use zeiss cinema lenses and when olympus pro lensing, maybe even compare these sets.  I look forward to seeing how much cinematic look you can get from m43.  This because i am prejudiced against investing in native m43 glass 


  7. There are virtually no information about matching Nikkor 14-24 2.8 with speedboosters/focal reducers.  Thus, I would like to share with my rough, unscientific and spontaneous test: OOC .jpg, handheld, GX80, Standard -3/-0/-0/-3.  This is a comparison between: (a) Nikkor 14-24 at 14 mm, 2.8 + Mitakon Lens Turbo v.2 vs. (b) Lumix kit lens 12-32 at 12 mm, 3.5.  IMHO there is a clear difference between these two sets, including that Nikkor is wider :) I would be more than happy to hear your thoughts.

    Scene 2


    Scene 3


    I have almost no focus peaking when lens turbo is on GX80.  Please let me know what I should change to improve this.  There is no problem with focus peaking when using the kit lens with MF mode on.

    Although there is no major play between Lens Turbo and GX80, I am considering Fotga as a cheap and small lens-support solution.  Do you have any other recommendation?


    PS. IBIS with GX80+adapted lens is really good.

  8. Do you have any experience with matching Nikkor 14-24 2.8 with Speedbooster for Sony E mount (or other APS-C)?  I could not find any user's reports/test on the Internet.  I only read that pairing UWA with Speedbooster can lead to dissapointing results.  Any feedback on this will be very much appreciated.

    BTW.  I also wonder why this lens (N 14-24) is relatively unpopular on this forum.
