  1. Ok, thanks. A search of the web seems to bring (above my head) conflicting H264/H265 decoding statements on the free version so I won’t paste here. Also Resolve evolves rapidly it seems so it’s hard to keep track. I suspect your pretty old processor and associated kit (motherboard, memory, storage?) may not be helping? I’ve a i7-9700K arriving tomorrow along with Quadro 4000 RTX, which at the time seemed a good idea for 10bit output prior to Nvidia gifting (nicely) 10bit to cheaper and argueably more powerful games orientated RTX and other cards. My view, though clearly not backed up, is you c
  2. So which is it then? Yay or nay for full power single GPU (RTX or other) support in the free version (Lite lets call it).. DaVinci Resolve heavily leverages the video card(s) in your system to improve playback and rendering performance. Because of this, your choice of GPU has a direct impact on how well your system performs. One key thing to note is that while the Free Edition of Resolve can utilize powerful cards like the RTX 2080, it is limited to just a single GPU. The Studio Edition, however, can technically utilize up to eight GPUs - although in our testing the performance typically
  3. Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately i've tried a standard 3.5mm audio (headphones) cable extension with no joy. There must be something more to this particular cable style to enable information transfer......
  4. On a C200 related note, does anyone know if there is a cheaper alternative to the (seems expensive?) Shape handgrip cable extension? Currently I'm keen to mount the handgrip to the right-side of the Ronin-S, but of course the cable won't quite reach. 20cm to 30cm would work nicely... Thanks all https://www.shapewlb.com/canon-c200-relocator-extension-cable/
  5. Ok cool, thanks for that. But just so I'm seeing things clearly in order to try and get my head around some clear stats. Can't Clog3 achieve up to (a stated) 14 stops of dynamic range? So therefore CRM (RAW files) can achieve 15 stops? Isn't 14 stops sufficient for HDR content (HDR > 13stops?)? So both properly exposed CLog3 and RAW can be used for HDR content creation if acquired in equal to or greater than 10bit (i.e. not currently possible with C200 but yes with EOS R). Please do correct me if I have this totally wrong. For all those wanting RAW on the EOS R, I totally get it, we al
  6. Thanks for that. Just thinking though, can that broader amount of DR actually be viewed on screens that most people have either now or in the realistic near future? Is one additional stop revolutionary in some way and is it worth dealing with the RAW workflow and file storage implications? Isn't Canon Log pretty soft anyhow? Not being combative, just querying the real world benefit of RAW vs. Clog2/Clog3. Cheers. Haha, I'm one of the 'lucky ones' with the option to record CRM, though perhaps I just don't know how to correctly handle it and don't realise the real real-world benefits! Wha
  7. Could it be that the desire for RAW recording ability on the EOS R may be a case of careful what you wish for? Huge files, need for external recorder and additional storage mediums, NLE plug-in hiccups/crashes, higher noise (depending on processing) perhaps etc. Does the information recovery/changes (White balance/Colour Temperature, ISO, Brightness/Sharpness) benefits of RAW really far outweigh that of quality 10bit 4:2:2 CLog2 or CLog3 footage for most peoples uses? Is it a game changing revolutionary workflow? Genuine questions. Please let me know if I'm missing something epic here? In thes
  8. From our very own! https://www.eoshd.com/2016/05/sigma-20mm-f1-4-art-review/
  9. Thanks. No issue at all with Super 35mm, just wanted as wide and as fast (F1.4 (real?) vs. F1.8 (real?)) as reasonably affordably possible with perhaps the ability (hence my thinking twice about the 18-35 which is for DX/Super 35mm) to mount on a stabilised full frame mirrorless (potentially canon, panasonic or otherwise) further down the line.
  10. I thank you! Yep, that's certainly a shame...Hmm. Can I ask, would I be making some fundamental ballsup by thinking that mounting a (full frame) Sigma 20mm F1.4 on the C200 would be a sane idea? Manual focus (most of the time though autofocus will probably work ok) and no stabilisation, but that F1.4 is enticing and there's plenty of excellent footage with the unstabilised Sigma F1.8 18-35 out there. Of course the C200 has internal ND's so that bypasses the bulbous front element filter issue. I really want wide, perhaps that is not wide enough...
  11. New Lens Query Topic: EF Full Frame Lens on Canon Crop Sensor Bodies - Possible to Maintain full frame angle of view? Hi I'm thinking to use a full frame EF lens (Sigma possibly Canon) on a C200 (Super 35mm so not full frame Sensor). We know this will work well enough without any adapter but what is a wide-angle lens on full-frame now becomes 1.5x less wide (ish). Does anyone know is there is an adapter/spacer/speed-booster etc that allows a full frame EF lens to maintain (or close to) its full-frame field of view when used on super 35mm or ASP-C bodies etc. Could be wishful thinking
  12. Couple of practical (non image quality) thoughts on the C200: - I like the fact that it's built for the job rather than needing to have several extra's bolted on. Not as much customisation/fun (perhaps) in that sense, but just works. - Price represents a solid tool for the job etc. A lot of money (Though why pay list/offer price? Always negotiate as you may be surprised), but see it as an investment for 5 years say and the pain is a little less. Be warned this purchase won't stop you browsing camera body threads, but it helps a little with that affliction. You'll most likely end up
  13. Similar experience here in that some 'lesser' (slower write) cards than those officially recommended do work at the selected in camera 200mbit/s record rate, but in my case, only for a limited time which is often brought to an abrupt unplanned stop. On an unrelated note, is it possible for rolling shutter to be reduced via firmware update do people think? Fairly poor performance in general is my finding, though I'd be interested to hear how others with authority discuss/rank the X-H1's performance.
  14. Perhaps a suitable low profile cage with handle/grip on the side could help with handheld stabilisation? Helps me at least. Bulks it up a little I suppose which may not be your cup of tea....
  15. Zoom does not tighten on my copy as far as I can tell. Autofocus if not silent is very very quiet....
