  1. It’s supposed to be announced next week, still no reliable leaks. I don’t really know what to expect. From the current EOS R, I’d like Nocrop 4k up to 60p, 10bit 422internal, 1080p120, IBIS, and dual slot. Of course, Dual pixel in every mode. Less that 2500€ and released in april. It’s not that much, and it will hurt Sony who gave us nothing interesting for two years, Come on Canon, you can do it 😁
  2. Why no one has quoted your post ? I find it interesting, and make me believe that Canon will, finally, play the true mirrorless game. So now we have to wait a few weeks to see what Sony and Canon have in their vault.
  3. Will that be necessary for the EOR5 ? 😂
  4. Exactly my thoughts. I don’t believe in these specs so soon, since nobody really asked or need for them. But on the other side, I’m sure canon will mark 2020 with their new mirrorless, in order to give faith back to the disappointed that left them to go Sony/Fuji/Panasonic. And then, they’ll start again to cripple their cameras for five or six years.
  5. So 6K is comming earlier than expected. Glad I didn't buy the Ninja V last month.
  6. The X-T3 is already a damn good camera. The best Aps-c mirrorless according to me ? Except IBIS and an articulated screen, I can’t see what they could improve. I’m not talking about evolutions that we expect at each new release, as better AF, better burst mode, or ISO performance. Maybe a new battery. Of course, 4k120 and 6k60 would be a nice bonus ?
  7. Thanks for your answer. It seems logical when you understand it. Oh Boy, I didn't see it. And Gerald is ma favorite youtuber ? Not really, actually. I've searched online, as usual, but with the bad words ; transmission instead of Tstop English is not ma native language, so sometimes, it's just about what you think to understant and the words you use.
  8. Hi Filmmaker friends, I was planning to buy some Sigma Art lenses in order to usethen on some video works. But, I've read that despite to be F1.4, most of them have a 1.8 or 1.9 transmission (T-stop). What does that mean ? Less light ? Less Bokeh ? Less whatever ? I tried to find information about that online, but so far no success. Thanks for your help ?
  9. I use the A7iii everyday for lot of different kind of videos, and as much I love the image it produces, here’s what annoys me the most with this camera : 1) When you use a simple monitor, you lose the face detection. You have to use a recorder/monitor, and record externally to get it back. 2) When you use a monitor and push record, the camera LCD becomes black. So you can not anymore use the touch screen to select a point to focus. 3) When you use the usb-c remote (if you want to control the camera from a gimbal for instance), it disable the internal steadyshot, and the HDMI output. 4) when you use the official app to control from your smartphone, you lose the AF detection, and you can not control the focus. 5) Ok Ok, AF is not what we use in cine camera, but forget about manual focus with Sony native lens. They’re all by wire, and unlike the Fuji Xt3, there is no setting to change their behavior to linear. I hope all of this will be fixed in the A7IV.
  10. Nothing really interesting according to the leaks. I guess we'll have to wait until end of february for the A7IV, and until Nab in April for the EOS R2 and the A7s3.
  11. I know what you mean. I also love how everything is on a fullframe camera, and it’s not only about the bokeh. So the camera we’d love is : - Fullframe - AF from A7R4 or 1DXII - 4k50 with no crop - 422 10bit (at least with HDMI out) - Raw recording (external of course) Actually, it could be the A7s3 ?
  12. Oh boy ? Have you tried a speedboster with EF lenses to get the fullframe bokeh ? Some video I saw on youtube were really impressive.
  13. That’s a very interesting observation, thank you. And what you say is probably true. There is no perfect camera. Even if every new one seems very close to be. That’s why we spend so much time talking and reading on this forum, instead of shooting with the gear we already have ? It’s true that I’m very satisfied with the A7iii and the GH5. They’re perfect for what I need from them. But beside that, I’m planning to do more short films this year, and I am seduced by the idea of a true Cinema camera, and to begin to work in manual focus. Of course I could already do that with a mc11+ cine lenses on the A7iii, and see how it goes. Seems safer.
  14. Yes I like the A7iii image, far more than the one from the GH5. So I use the A7iii for any creative content, and the GH5 for anything else. What I would like to achieve, is simplify my gear. 1) Replace my A7iii for stills, by a EOS R2 with Ef lenses 2) Replace my A7iii for video by a bmpcc with EF lenses 3) keep my gh5 and use it with EF lenses One lenses mount to rule them all ?
  15. As I said in the first post : But You’re right, I’m being picky for small reasons. Maybe it’s the new year GAS ?
  16. - The A7iii is my premium work horse. I use it for everything work related, and love its IQ on video and stills as well. - The Gh5 is used for no creative work, when I need reliability, and to work fast. No overheating, flip screen, amazing ibis, it’s a monster for any situation. - The X-t3 is my fun camera to use in relax mode. But I bought a x100f for this purpose, so I’ll probably sell it. You’re right about the eco system. it’s my main reason to think about the P4K : EF lenses. I could replace my A7iii by a Eos R 2, and would have only one lenses mount for my 3 cameras.
  17. I only have the 12-35 2.8 mkII, and the 25 1.7. Since I only use the GH5 for boring stuff like events, I haven’t put my money on lenses. About the Apsc EF mount, I’m sure someone will release a speedbooster to enjoy FF lenses. I’m not sure about that. what I usually read, is that for most, sony color science is not on par with Canon or Fuji. And with the 8bits limitation, it seems difficult to correct it properly. I personally disagree with that. First, the A7iii color science is far better than previous model. Second, if you shoot in HLG3/bt2020 with a perfect custom WB, and a color checker, colors will not be an issue. Even in neutral mode, you can get good results.
  18. Actually, I don’t ? Well, i find it good, sharp and balanced, but nothing special to love. Of course, with a good grade, you can improve a lot of things, that’s true. but I really prefer the A7iii shots. I thought about the S1. Too heavy, too bulky, pricey, and not really mature I think. I already have a X-T3, but only for stills. I don’t really enjoy to use it for video, since no ibis, bad h265, and battery life in video is not great. Except for 4k60, I found the A7iii better in every way for shooting videos.
  19. Hi filmmaker mate, Best wishes and happy new year for all of you ? As usual, it's the time of the year when we think about all of great things we hope to accomplish until 2021. And for some of these things, we need new gear (Not really, but yeah ?) So this year I've been exclusively shooting with a A7iii for stills, and a GH5 for short movies as well. I love the Image quality the A7iii can produce, but don't really like using it. (Can't add a monitor without losing Face detection, can't record externally without losing the a7iii live view). And I can't have fun grading with 8bits. So anyway, I'm thinking to separate photos and video, and maybe go the Blackmagic P4k road, with EF lenses, and the Metabones. But I have some questions, and maybe you can help : (I know i could probably find my answers on youtube, but I prefer true filmmaker answers) 1) I love the FF 4k from the a7iii, not only about the Bokeh thing, but how everything is modeling. Will I lose this feelling with the P4k+SB+Ef lenses ? 2) P4k, P6k, my heart want to go 6k, but it seems less reliable. And the fan more noisy. But, it already has a EF mount (only APS-C), so the price difference with the 4k is not as important. Yeah, I don't know ? 3) No ibis, small battery, and needed to be rigged. But I guess it's a trade. I'm ok with it. I'm thinking about the Ronin S with the follow focus accessory. Is any of you use it and is satisfed ? Really appreciate your help. Cheers,
  20. 1300€ the 16-55... Fuji must be happy at this time.
  21. 4k30, 8bit, one dual slot, no joystick. So disapointing. Even one year later, they can't keep up with the X-T3. At least the 16-55 seems great. But we still don't know the price, and if it IS.
  22. Haha ? You know what ? I kept it ? I love the panarama and the timelapse features. And it so easy to use, that everyone around me can hold it an get acceptable results. Which is nice for birthday party, or any family event.
  23. It was here before I cleaned the sensor. I use a very good kit, very carefully, which works great to clean my other cameras. Yep, with two different lenses, same pattern.
  24. Hi there, I recently noticed few dirty spots on my photos. So I checked and clean my sensor and lenses, and they were ok. I took another picture today on a white wall, and oh my ? Have you already seen something like that ? I guess I need to send it back to Fuji Support ?

    Sony A6400

    I agree. Therefore, vloggers already complaint about the tilt screen position, which will be a pain to use with a mic in the hotshoe. Also, same old weak battery, no ibis, no headphone jack, same sensor with same terrible rolling shutter and probably same overheating issue , for 1050€. I’ll pass ?
