  1. There is definitely something strange going on with Canons R5/R6 10-bit 4:2:2 Clog files. None of my Macs can even play them. At all. Including my iMac Pro. I have to transcode it all to ProRes with EditReady. It's definitely a giant PITA. Why is this so? is it because 10-bit 4:2:2 h265?? Do the new M1 Macs handle these files better? Might have to go to Apple store with a thumb drive and see for myself.
  2. As an R6 user that upgraded from an EOS R, yes there are some strange missing things that make the upgrade kinda feel like a downgrade in some areas. But in the end, for my needs, its a very clear upgrade: oversampled 4K with no crop, IBIS, internal 10-bit 4:2:2, 120 fps FHD. If you add DPAF to the mix, well there really isn't much competition for those particular features at that price point. Of course if you can stretch your budget to an A7S3 you get a more reliable camera and 4K120p but on the stills side you're down to 12MP. Not that the R6 is a MP beast but 20MP is a decent bala
  3. I've been doing some commercial shoots with the BM 6K's lately and the 6K PRO will probably be my next camera purchase. For the money it is kind of a no-brainer: 6K BRAW / ProRes, Dual ISO Super35 sensor, 5" bright LCD, best GUI, SD/CFAST/SSD storage options & internal NDs. That said, I do agree the biggest drawback is EF mount. While there are a large amount of EF cine lenses, they're on the bigger side and a lot of the more recent compact cine lenses including anamorphic lenses such as the SIRUI series are mirrorless mount exclusives. One of the big attractions of the 6K/6K Pro is 6

    Yeah no 4K option. Only FHD doesn't overheat. Indoors. Average room temperature. I mean it's nothing new, overheating is well documented and I believe R6 actually has longer 4K recording time than R5's 4KHQ. Still obviously a concern for long applications. Can't find the video, you got a link? Only dedicated fan I remember and would consider was the Tilta cooling kit: But it looks like they abandoned the project..

    Well I had my first overheat yesterday during an interview. I thought it was going to be a 15-30mn max job but it ended up dragging on over an hour. Overheat came on just at the end so I was saved but cool down time was about 30mn. I don't think I can recommend this camera for that type of application.
  6. Yup, kind of disappointing they didn't think of making the 10-bit codec easier to edit. Would have been a safe way to make the R5/R6 more competitive with A7S3. Also let down with no Clog3 for R6/1DX3 owners even though it is rumoured to come later (i.e. another 6 months).
  7. Is the new lower bitrate option in Clog h264 or 4:2:0 h265?

    Probably price. The C70 will still be worthy for its DGO sensor which gives higher DR than R5. also internal NDs, XLRs, battery life, WFM etc..

    Some exciting news for both R5 & R6 users! New 4K codec could hopefully mean no more transcoding for 10-bit footage. R5C rumor is also interesting, looks like Canon's answer to FX3. And a worthy successor to 1DC (minus the price tag I hope!).

    No ALL-I on the R6 though

    Good question, I also usually just follow 180 degree rule blindly and shoot 50p at 1/100 with slow-mo in mind. Maybe 50p at 1/50 makes more sense for non slomo on a 25p timeline..? Yes 4K50p is the same 5.5K oversampled quality 4K. 4K crop mode is a slightly upsampled sub-4K region (3414 x 1920 pixels). You'd have to pixel peep to notice the difference. I guess its worth noting 4K60p crop mode on the R6 gets you the lowest RS: 10.2ms. Manual WB with Clog in Neutral seems pretty good, I haven't done extensive tungsten tests though.

    AWB-White works in Clog. I'm just saying if you have to use kelvin or custom you may wanna help skin tones by going Neutral in Clog.

    The yellow cast thing only becomes a problem in mixed lighting, if you're using AWB you simply need to hit info inside the settings and select white priority as warm is the default. In custom or kelvin, switch to Clog and select Neutral color matrix. You can also further adjust WB tint in the RGB matrix. Concerning 4K rolling shutter on R6 you can half the RS from 30ms to 15ms just by shooting in 4K60p (and convert to 24/25p in post) and down to 20ms in 4K crop mode.

    @ntblowz Nice! Interesting to see the photographer was on a R6. Looks like although its a Canon sponsored event, you were using your own gear? Was the R5/C70 footage shot in standard, log or RAW?
  15. I feel Sony & Nikon are both playing catch up towards Canon who leapfrogged the whole industry bringing 8K RAW/10-bit to the FF hybrid market with DPAF. The real question IMO is going to be who manages to bring a body that doesn't overheat? We already know the A1 overheats in 4K/8K XAVC-SI (I read reports ranging from 16mn to 30mn depending on frame rate, resolution & temperature). Will Nikons larger body allow better heat dissipation? 1DX3 seems to do so versus the smaller R5/R6 bodies. Nikon also need to up their video AF performance, allow internal log etc. Their lac
