  1. So this is my take on it based on observation.
    Red Monstro have a tint in the shadows
    Sigma FP horrible flicker
    Sony FX9 insane black crush (or user error?)
    Sony Venice slight crush when pushed but gets away with it
    Red Helium slight crush when pushed but gets away with it

  2. Linus did a high clock speed test for their encoder server compared to core count recently and things changed sine the "don't use more than 8 cores" thing was relevant. I would not trust that based on years old info at this point.

    I have not really done any value lookup on the new ryzen line so I don't know if 16 core is price competitive to 8 core etc or compared it to Epyc while more expensive could maybe still be justified if you have paid work chugging along on it. Or just want a tonne of nvme storage strapped to it.


  3. CPU or encoder chip is really not the problem, you can cool that with a relatively small heat sink and you will be fine, it really does not take much to actually process an image. What heats up is readout of the sensor and blanking it, and the lower rolling shutter you want the harder it gets. Tiny sensors mean less distance and less resistance so less heat. That is why Sony needed BSI to stand a chance while gh4 shot 4k just fine.

  4. Do you have a way to spin something at a fixed speed and see if shutter speed or fps change a tiny bit while changing ISO?

    Maybe a macro lens and a record player under natural light. It would look like a speed calibration test but used in reverse to check the camera instead.

    Might have to do some math and print a test chart if you are testing other frame rate than 50/60 depending on where you live.

  5. Sure you could stick a giant heatsink to the back of the sensor and have a larger box, it's all the same except where you mount the radiator/heatsink.

    I would still want to see a solid block with sensor, mount and stuff with fittings on it, as long as you have thermal shut down it shuold be ok.

    Or maybe a block with a flat back, then you can stick any heat sink or aio of your choice to it.

  6. Can you connect gopro to a wifi network? If so you can add some mesh AP to extend the range. Probably exist some USB powered versions to use with power bank.

    If the gopro can only present itself as a network you could connect to it with an AP and have that extend the signal.

    If you want some cheap point to point link I like the UBNT NanoStation LocoM2 or M5 (there is a now AC version too). They can be set to work as AP, station (connect to network) or router if you need that too. Think most if not all of 24V passive poe so should not be hard to power it.

  7. I doubt it's fully ad funded if that is what you mean, money per view isn't that amazing.

    Views and subscribers isn't that great compared to a blacksmith for example.


    Or urban exploration


    I do recommend watching both since they do a really well in the quality department.

    uh where where I, sorry got distracted watching videos.

  8. Well at least they can now use their very high rolling shutter design to great effect, the need to stop as to not over heat and constantly charge is a feature since it allows the user to meet new people and get connected, just not with a phone unless you pay extra for the app.

  9. That is waaaay overexposed and is clipping. To get any more saturation from it you need to decrease exposure. Since the brighter the object the less saturation it can have and stay inside the color space. Think of it as a three sided pyramid with a base and with sides kinda bowing in.

    So by decreasing exposure you can just up the saturation and it will be redder.

  10. Linus illustrates exactly why 8k is stupid right now. And points out that resolution is beyond what is needed and we just need better pixels.

    But you have to remember that 4k was exactly that experience a while ago, it was that broken to to get running not to mention games was even more broken.

  11. So a real question, are these sites (since they are all connected) just a way to spam Luminar ads?

    I didn't want to make a new thread about it but it's in every other or 3rd post and seem to be the only regular ad not run by ad network across all sites.
    Some of them erks me enough to manually block the ads and make me not want to touch the software with a stick.

    MUST have AES

    We have a Dlive s7000 with the XLR AES being unused, would I need any adapter or can I just hook it up to spdif?

    Define "affordable"?

    Something I can justify spending even tho I don't *need* it,

    I saw the thread title, instantly thought "this is going to be an interesting thread...." 


    Immediate disappointment as I realized we're not going to be talking about sound recorders.

    I mean if you have a suggestion for a recorder that is easy to use, cheap(ish) and can take XLR and AES(from XLR) then that would be a useful thing to buy as well. Rack mount or portable could both work.

    But since the video recording would handle audio as well coming through HDMI from the video mixer it would be used at the sound mixer for those times we don't do video.

  14. Pi 4 is only about half price to a Nano and the Nano seem to have nv encoder/decoder in HW and it has an M.2 slot from what I read.(although can't seem to find it in pics) I think someone is poking around with getting OBS running on one too.

    Maybe I can use one for another project, need something to replace Qlab since the only mac mini we have left won't live forever.
