    Henry Ciullo got a reaction from Emanuel in Western governments are criminally negligent over Coronavirus   
    here in Italy politicians acted late and are still behind... 
    we lack tests , its been 3 weeks with masks and hand lotion are to be found nowhere... trains across the country are still running and no control on who gets aboard, spreding the disease.
    Then in italy, every death,even if the person had terminal cancer, but if tested positivi for c19, has been accounted for the virus, while in other countries they "hide" their deaths better..
    this is going to hurt our economy badly, it was already crap..
    I am stunned at how "civilized" countries are being caught off guard even if they have had lots of time to prepare for action,,

    Henry Ciullo got a reaction from rainbowmerlin in COVID19 Kibosh   
    here in italy everything is stopped. I film mainly sporting events and conventions.. so for at least 2 months (if all goes well) all my appointments are cancelled. no income . You can hardly move from home. 
    Just some advice for those of you that aren't in lock down yet:
    - gather canned and long term foods so you have to go outside least possible.
    -try to get anti bacteria hand gel before they are sold out.
    - if you can manage to work from home, prepare for doing so for several weeks.
    - if you have a house in the middle of nowhere, gather your supplies and get there a.s.ap. anybody around you could be infected.

    Henry Ciullo got a reaction from Raafi Rivero in An adventure into the Panasonic GX85/80 begins - and a look at the Leica Nocticron for Micro Four Thirds   
    used the gx80 with 12-32 for first time on actual shoot and wanted to share a few thoughts:
    - ibis works well to keep camera shake and jitter at bay in run n gun situations like the ones I am used to. If you can manage to walk smoothly you can even pull off some "sort of" gimbal shots.
    - resolution, dynamic range and color has greatly improved from gh1 and gh2 (my previous panny cameras)
    - the 12-32 lens is a good all rounder for my type of situations, with ETC you get the extra reach when needed. I do really miss a manual focus gear.
    - single AF defining the area with touch screen and focusing with half shutter is my preferred way of using this lens. I do wish peaking was enabled also for AF just to be sure. I did miss a couple of out of focus shots looking at the lcd, which confirms my personal hate towards filming with lcd, I much prefer looking into an evf.
    - i missed several recordings, because sometimes you need to press twice the rec button, it seems that after 1 min of inactivity the camera goes into a half standby, removing info from screen. 
    - hdmi ouput is clean and does not impact lcd or evf output as many panny cameras do
    - battery life is rubbish. I had only 1 battery with me and only lasted around 30mins continuos use. Not being able to recharge in camera with the camera on really sucks. With the Blackmagic pocket I could use an external power pack to recharge internal batt and power the cam at the same time and could go on the whole day.
    - using standard profile with -5 and shadow +2 I am happy with shadow level and highlight rolloff. I still am not convinced about skin tones, I guess the Blackmagic has spoilt me in this area.
    - i cannot make timelapse function work. I just don't get it. I also tried reading the manual but all I can do is set starting time, interval and image count ( I presume you need to put 0 to have infinite takes). But then how do you actually start the function? with shutter it only takes 1 pic....
    Here is a pic of my handheld rig I have been using since the GH1 ages, it gives me the flexibilty I need to move quickly and adds some mass to smooth out movement. There is an old 8mm camera pistol grip, a chest pad made out of a metal L bracket with foam and vinyl, Fotga rod with baseplate and manfrotto ballhead with quick release.
    Here is a quick selection of clips from the weekend.

    quick test with gx80 comparing it to gh2 on a gimbal. Of course it cannot replace a gimbl, but i wanted to test the limits.
