  1. I think Panasonic is a much more stable video system than Sony and Canon and for many that counts a lot. It is probably more reliable when recording long form, has less faffing about than Sony to set up exposure and colour, it has 180 degrees. There are many reasons to like Panasonic over others and that's why we want reliable Panny AF.
  2. Totally. I’ll add 2 things. The S1 LVF and being able to disable the angle/shutter wheel.
  3. When is all Panasonic needs to tell us. I hope for their sake as well as those of us who are invested in their system that it’s the next generation of the S line.
  4. New Mac to replace my fully specced iMac late 2013 (has been a great work horse but I'm tired of work in proxies with 4K 10 bit). I'm torn between a 16" MacBook Pro with 1TB and 16gb ram, the base Mac Studio or a Mac Mini with 16gb 512GB ( cheap option for a year or so).

    I bought my Lumix S5 with a 500€ cash back deal in Spain. It works as you say. I think it took a month or 2 to get the cash back. Great deals.
  6. So....any idea how 4k 50p at 6400 or above looks?
  7. What is it like at 6400 iso? I'm not sure what everyone else thinks but for me 6400 iso y a lowlight iso, especially at corporate events and weddings.
  8. I bought my S1 with Vlog for 1100€ a year ago. A fantastic but slightly heavy camera. Best value I think.
  9. With the S5 you can record with no limit with 4K 25 8bit and 1080 10 bit. I do long form streaming with one. 2-3 hours non stop. I have the XLR unit with pro audio. It's the same price as the FX30 XLR unit. Anyway, great to have so many choices. just make sure you don't take Youtube influencers as gospel.
  10. In Spain the S5 is 1835€ with 200€ cash back, so 1635€. The FX30 without the XLR adaptor is 2300€ which is quite a lot. Enough to buy a quality lens.
  11. There is a kind of flap filter that you can stick your vnd on. Just flip it up and down. No idea if it’s any good.
  12. I agree that’s a great system. There is an adapter for EF to L mount that has a vnd but I’m not sure how it affects af. I use Xume magnetic filter rings for my vnds. They are very useful. I don’t know why they stopped making them.
  13. I've come to the same conclusion for now. I can't find better value than L Mount. What I would say is that if you haven't tried the Panasonic 1.8 lenses then you should. I really like them and they work well for both photo and video.
  14. I think Deity has a small directional mic (like the Rode Go) but with a minijack input. This means you could plug in a wireless receiver into that output and in theory have stereo with one track being directional mic and the other the wireless giving you 2 tracks incase anything goes wonky with one. I don't know whether that will work with a phone though, I've only seen people do it with cameras.
  15. I had the Tascam and whilst it worked it was good. But… it stopped recording sound one day and since then I’ve never trusted it. I found other people online who have had the same problem. For critical sound you should get something you can monitor.
