    Django got a reaction from Igor in Full frame rival sales figures = grim reading for everyone vs Sony   
    Oh cmon, Panasonic removed a lot of video stuff to not take away from GH5 sales. They don't give you V-Log either, it's a paid option. 
    People love to demonize Canon but none of these companies are church organizations..

    Django got a reaction from TurboRat in Can the Sony FS7 pair with the Ninja V (non-RAW)?   
    FS7 can output 10-bit 4:2:2 via HDMI up to 4K30fps. I've tested it successfully with a Ninja V even though it isn't really necessary since FS7 records 10-bit 4:2:2 internally up to 4K60p.
    The Ninja V with the SDI module should allow 10-bit recording from the FS5.

    Django got a reaction from kaylee in 6K is the new 1440p, Convince me otherwise   
    Netflix is probably the biggest 4K advocate with their infamous camera/file requirements.
    Now that they basically make TVs in partnership with consumer giants it’s only a matter of time before 6K/8K becomes minimum production requirement for their content.
    I must admit watching 4K Dolby Vision HDR content on my 65” calibrated OLED 4K TV is pretty damn glorious!
    I can see cinema production adopting this quickly (already the case for those shooting RED). 35mm film being roughly 6K equivalent in resolution, even analog purists may have to reconsider digital.

    Think you've missed my point as well, that what is "the best" (such as DXOmark scores) is not as important as he is making it out to be. 
    Especially if you're just subjectively splitting hairs over which image or another is "best".

    Remember the OP had "not even thought about video" until a month ago. 
    So a "soft 1080 image" or "cropped 4K" is the least of his worries! 
    He should instead be focused on just making as much content as possible, to fail and learn from, to improve on his big weaknesses first rather than relatively minor technical details. And if is to buy anything, have it be anything *but* a new camera body in the next couple of years. Let it be some quality wireless, or a few lights, or a slider, or a fluid head, or....  well, as we all know, the possibilities are endless!
     
     

    I'd encourage you to slow down and think about what you're doing, but if for whatever reason you're doing madcap fast paced shooting and you really really want to ditch the DSLR, then perhaps get any one of a C100/XC10/XC15?

    Django got a reaction from ghostwind in Canon gear advice for pro photographer getting into videography   
    The guy has done his homework.. he is heavily invested in Canon glass, that’s why he chose 5D4 & 1DX2. 
    Sony/Nikon DXO scores are therefore irrelevant.
    He wants the best FHD in Canon ecosystem. 5D4 & 1DX2 are soft in 1080p & shoot 4K in MJPEG making downscaling cumbersome to say the least.
    Cinema line models pros/cons have already been covered and he’s not interested in switching systems as you lose Canon DPAF/CS.
    EOS R is I think the only option that hasn’t been mentioned. In FHD crop mode it shoots a very detailed 1080p downscaled from 4K. Unfortunately it retains the severe RS and heavy crop.

    Haven’t followed this discussion closely but C100/C100mk2 with even a Ninja Star recorder will give you super sharp 4K downsampled 1080p with minimum compression.
    Definitely the cheapest way to get the best FHD quality out of Canon ecosystem imo (ML RAW aside).

    Nice upgrade but some strange omissions indeed. No touchscreen for that A9 AF also seems like a gross oversight (when the $6,500 C200 does it). 
    Guess we’ll now have to wait & see what the FX6 will bring to the table..

    Updated specs from CanonRumors. THIS is much more like it for their high-end cinema camera. Still leaves some room for the C300 III to play in. Still really needs 120fps in 4K though. 
    Canon Cinema EOS C500 Mark II rumored specifications:
    Full-frame sensor
    Records up to 5.9k at 60p RAW full frame
    Records 4K60p in Super35 crop internally in Cinema RAW light
    Records 2k120p in Super16 crop in Cinema RAW light
    Can record in XF-AVC in 4k and 2k oversampled from the 5.9k sensor with 4:2:2 10- bit sampling
    CFExpress is needed because of the bitrate, the 5.9K RAW is 2.5Gbps, 4k is the same bitrate as the Cinema EOS C200 at 1Gbps
    RAW internal recording (both 4K and 2K). 4K is up to 60p, 2K up to 120p.
    Optional XF-AVC recording in 4:2:2 10 bit (4K up to 60p, 2k up to 120p)
    User interchangeable lens mount
    Optional modules with EVF, genlock, timecode, 12G-SDI, etc
    EF and PL mount available at launch

    The EF 35mm sucks absolute balls compared to the RF 35mm which is one of the best affordable entry level lenses I've seen on any system. I so wish Sony, Fuji and the others try to make something similar, because right now they are getting their ass handed to them in that department.

    Push Focus on EOS R with the 50mm F1.2 wide open is blazing fast (like maybe 0.4ms).
    AF continuous takes about a second to transition a focus pull from +2m to near distance (with the AF settings I have). It's even faster on my 6yo C100 mk1 DAF.

    Ask me any questions you have. Disclaimer: I wasn’t able to get 6k raw to work and need to spend some time getting it in Resolve. For now... here is a first look and impression video with some footage. Some 6k raw was able to be transcoded to 1080p... but that’s it. Seriously been a pain in the neck but it is what it is....

    Django got a reaction from webrunner5 in Which colour science do you like the most?   
    I just bought an FS7 and as I mentioned in the thread I started about it, the skin tones SOOC are vastly inferior to what I effortlessly get out of my Canons.
    Thankfully though the beefy 600mbps 10-bit 422 XAVC-I codec makes up for it and grading has never been easier.
    Slight temperature/tint adjustment. Throw down the Venice LUT and I'm in the zone. Still that's an extra node or two (times as many clips as you have).
    The FS5 mk II sole and unique "upgrade" (more like a fix) was the Venice CS. That kinda says a lot about Sony CS!
    To be fair though, a lot has been improved since A7S2. We're still nowhere near CaNikon/Fuji CS but things are more neutral now.
    Canon does have some kind of magic sauce when it comes to skin tones & red signal. It just really pops. Seem to remember it has to do with how the RGB is processed..
    The original 5D for stills and 1DC / C100 / 5D3ML for video are still my favourite Canons when it comes to CS.
    Leica CS (pre-M10) is yet in another league imho.

    Product segmentation is unavoidable. Sony really isn't that bad. Unlocked FS5 with a recorder can do up to 240fps RAW 4K which is pretty wild. 
    A7III is what imo sent A7S3 back to the drawing boards. 
    Codec wise yeah I wouldn't dream. XDCam managers won't let an A7 line get 10-bit XAVC-I. 
    A7S3 will have a crazy sensor that'll choke everyone, 6K/8K support and a killer new body design with a flip out screen. 
    That is my prediction.
    Getting back to the FS7, thanks to those for suggesting that Venice LUT. It's an excellent starting point for SLog3:

    I record music with mainly 70's equipment.. analog gear has this timeless appeal vs digital.
    That said I'm also an advocate of "old" devalued high-end digital tech such as the Leica M9 I also purchased this year. 2009 Kodak CCD sensor. Shit on sensor charts. Mad mojo IRL.
    My C100 mk1 also long in the tooth, with a low bitrate 8-bit codec.. but also has this je ne sais quoi IQ appeal. Canon 5D mk1, my favorite out of the whole series..etc
    FS7 is just the latest in my gear purchasing pattern cycle. So yeah, I'm not worried one bit.. like I said I'm actually pretty thrilled 😁
