  1. See for yourself, download the samples from my blog: https://blog.presstige.sk/post/187207698230/bmpcc-4k-raw-vs-panasonic-s1-v-log-i-just-did-a After three months of shooting with the BMPCC and the S1 I would pick the S1 over the pocket any day. I'm not saying that the pocket is a worse camera, but the S1 really got the edge with the slightly better dynamic range and usability. I don't own an S1H but I suppose it's almost the same when it comes to 4K 10bit. Bottom line: no bashing here, i love both cameras

  3. Damn, that SDI almost doubles it's price. I've got mine (HDMI only) for 220euros from Aliexpress. I also shot with the SDI version and it's pretty solid. The image is bright even in sunlight, you can load luts and the IQ is very nice. But do not buy the claymore wireless, for 600 euros it's a bummer. Works very badly and you have to walk next to the camera to get the image from the transmitter.
  4. Portkeys HH7 is great, trades around 250 USD on amazon or 250-300 on aliexpress. I got mine to europe with free DHL shipping.
  5. Thanks! I also shot a talent [who wore a blue dress] in direct sunlight, now I'm wondering why didn't that happened to my footage. I'm still new to S1 so probably have to do some additional tests...
  6. How and when is this blue clipping occurring in V-Log? I just shot a scene where my main keylight had CTB gels and my footage is clean.
  7. It wasn't run n gun, but we had a long shotlist and a tight schedule. The shoot was 14 hours long. The S1 was mostly rigged on the Ronin S, with dual handle, Tilta Follow Focus, SmallHD monitor and a claymore wireless transmitter. I do understand the advantages of shooting with a lighter camera, but my personal preference is different.
  8. I just had a 2 day shoot with the S1 + Sigma adapter + Samyang VDSLR lenses and actually, I prefer it's weight over the GH5.

    Panasonic GH6 rumours

    It can record non stop 4K. But the S1 lacks of the professional video options like the GH5 had, like using shutter degrees, etc. However, it's image is truly awesome.
  10. 25mm MFT on the P4K, 50mm samyang on the S1. More info in my blog » If I will get my hands on a 35mm Samyang, I will compare it (with a Speedbooster on the P4K) to a 50mm on the S1. Yep, I absolutely agree.
  11. The S1 looks good to me as well. However, please check Geralds video on exposing the BMPCC4K, where he explains how does the different ISO values impact your final image and why is shooting on the base ISO a good thing. So, my footage is far from great, but isn't that the reason why raw was invented? 😄
  12. 0 is the lowest you can go for the sharpening/NR (Panasonic slightly changed the UI, it's not like on the GH5 where you had negative values). Get the free resolve, download the footages and try to match them together It's not impossible, but there's a learning curve, like I wrote earlier, I unintentionally overexposed the Pocket screengrab, don't take it as a reference. My goal was to show you all how differently are these two cameras handling the same situation and to upload some sample clips, because I did not had the opportunity to compare the two cameras before buying them.
  13. Nope, 640 is the lowest you can go with the V-log. I will do some more detailed test (V-log vs. HLG as well) and upload everything to my blog, but I have a shoot next week and I have to prep.
  14. The left one is the S1, the right one is the Pocket (you can spot easily, because it's "cropped", aka 4K DCI). Download the sample clips and try to push your own grade to it's limits. I'm not a colorist, just quickly graded these two clips After I uploaded them, I noticed that I pushed the Pocket highlights a bit too much. The braw has the information (highlights max at 80 IRE) but the brightest parts of the screengrabs are over 100 IRE. I only had the Pocket on one shoot and got the V-log license yesterday 😄 So, I will upload more sample clips probably so everyone can get the idea what are these two toys capable of.
  15. Hey folks, I made a quick test comparing the BMPCC 4K with the S1 V-Log. Here are my thoughts with the sample clips It was a quicky, so do not take that a professional reference, but you can play with the footages in resolve to see how they hold up against each other.
  16. It's f... useless... Come on, like you have to export the serial number from your camera and upload it to their servers... It's like harassing...
  17. Finally I have received the FW upgrade code from Panasonic. I will shoot some test footages during this weekend and make it downloadable for you so you can compare how does V-log hold up against the BMPCC4K.
  18. Just checked my brand new 50mm STM and my 85mm USM and they are fine. If it's from the adapter, you might want to get in touch with Panasonic reps.
  19. The UK deal with the FW upgrade + MC-11 adapter made me switch. The image is very gorgeous, but the autofocus is is rubbish with the Canon USM lenses.
  20. I'm waiting for more than two weeks now, still nothing from Panasonic UK...
  21. Let's push panasonic, let them hear your voice as well and let's hope they will fix it with a FW update.
  22. So, this auto slowmo feature is pissing me off pretty much. No chance to set ISO, aperture or shutter speed. Sets camera automatically to 125 shutter for 125fps, dfq, shouldn't you have twice the framerate? At least they could add shutter degrees...
