  1. Hey fellas -

    It's been a little while since I picked up my NX1 and I don't think I've ever used the EVF.  So..about a week ago, I noticed that I couldn't focus far away objects while looking through the EVF.  Close objects looked to be no problem. 

    However, the LCD is just fine.  Maybe it's my eyes but has anyone else seen this?

    I just took the V2  since there was a nice discount: how do you prefer to focus the subject when using shallow depth of field? Leaving as it is, with an electronic follow focus, hyper-focal, just by eye...?? :)

    You only have 2 choices:

    1. Use a camera with great autofocus like the Canons. The NX1 also has great autofocus.

    2. Manually set the focus and stay the same distance from your subject.

  3. Hey fellas -

    Anyone given further thought about these platforms now that the whole YouTube demonetization thing has taken hold?  I know several folks that are only making pennies now compared to what they did last year.  

    It sucks that FB still only tops out at 720P but since most folks are watching videos on their phones anyway, I don't think it matters that much.

    As an experiment, I checked view counts and comments on Oak Studios FB page and their YT page and they were about even.  

    Further thoughts?

    The 180fps with 5 axis stabilization has been such a breath of fresh air. 

    It's replaced our RED just from ease of use alone (trying to sell it now).

    Good to hear from you again, Luke. 

    Are you guys still using those Nikkors with the GH5? I'm guessing the stabilization works well enough with those non-native lenses to make a difference.

    Any other lessons you've learned since you did the first GH5 video?

    4k 60p is great.  Color is improved.  Ibis.  Keeping mine until Sony relases their equivalent because I really want that af-c.

    If you can't make money with this I'm certain it's not the camera...


    Hi, when you mention the color, are you talking about SOOC color or ability to grade the footage?

  6. Adding new features is good. Even adding new features that don't work is tolerable as long as you fix it.

    Breaking something that was working is very bad.

    Computer programmers should take cue from the hippocratic oath - first do no harm...

  7. Adobe's Creative Cloud revenue grew 40% last year. They are making a ton of money despite what others said when they decided to go whole hog from perpetual to subscription-based licensing. 

    And I agree with Luke. Their support is quite bad. The forums are largely there so users can help other users with minimal Adobe help.

  8. I'd also echo what others have said about the 16-50 S and the 30mm.  The 16-50 S autofocus performs excellently while the 30mm does hunt a bit and is a little loud. It does work but just not as fast.

    Having said that, I still use my 30mm when flying a pistol grib gimbal as the 16-50 S is a little too heavy for it.

    My god.. so I just found out that the only fast semi-wide/standard prime Samsung has (the 30mm) is loud and slow at AF.  

    Canon/Nikon/pentax = great bodies and lens selection, crap video

    Panasonic/olympus = great bodies, large lens selection, no phase detection, questionable colour and small sensor

    Sony = feature rich but quirky and has expensive lenses

    Samsung = great body, poor lens selection

    Fuji = great lens selection, great SOOC images, jumpy AF, lack of stabilsation in body or lenses

    Fuck meee. 

    Maybe ill get the NX1 for my fast 16-50 needs and also get a GX80 for my fast semi wide prime needs :confused:

    Have you considered the 1dx mk II?

    Without 4k 60p, DPAF and a robust codec, the A9 doesn't touch the 1Dxii when it comes to video capabilities, I'm sorry to say. The A7siii, however....remains to be seen. 

    The 1DX Mk II is an amazing camera. I do wish it was smaller and had a flip out screen though.

    Firmware 1.1 just announced, releases April 24th. Includes:

    -10-bit 4:2:2 in 1080p

    -4:3 anamorphic mode (3398x2496), also in 10-bit 4:2:2

    -exposure adjustment problem in VFR mode (I'm guessing this is the darker screen when using shutter angle)

    -V-Log high-ISO ghosting problems (doesn't this happen in normal profiles too? Hope this addresses that too)

    That's great that they are pumping out firmware so soon after the release.  

    I'm guessing they'll fix the autofocus problems later in the summer, though?  Can they afford to wait that long as that might affect sales.
