    C100 mkiii

    I'd imagine many would want 4k internal as well. The beauty of the C100 is the ability to shoot high quality material in camera that doesn't bog down your computer for a quick turn around as well as the ability to up the output quality by using an external recorder.
  2. I was really interested in this camera but it just seemed to fail in a few areas (for my needs). It could have done with a wider and faster lens (f1.8-4) and hence better lowlight. The limited ND filter seemed a bizarre choice. If you are going to include an ND filter it makes sense to have a usable one! PDAF would have been a great choice or a lens with a better MF feel. Here's hoping that an XC20 comes along with those features.

    Looking forward to see what they offer. The C100 mk1 has been great for me (apart from the LCD and evf). Could do with losing a few hundred grams as well.
  4. VladsaysF, the only drawback with GX85 is the bad sound. Otherwise it's great value.
  5. Thanks Ken. I ask as I have fully manual lenses (Voigtlander and SLR Magic) so AF lock won't work for me. I need to be able to focus manually and adjust on the go.
  6. I'm more interested in how easy it is to use MF. How do you find the lcd and evf for critical focus in run and gun situations?
  7. I have shot at upto 10,000 iso with the C100 and Sigma 18-35 1.8 at a wedding. Just a few shots but there was no other way of getting material. Having the option of high iso is clearly very useful as many of us don't get to shoot in ideal lighting. I've used the GX85 at 3200 with a Voitlander 25 and slr magic 12mm and whilst not as good as the Canon at same iso it was useable with a bit of Neat video. 6400 on the GX85 is not nice at all! If the GH5 can really pull off a useable 6400 for then I'll really consider buying it. Lightness and ibis make wedding days a whole lot more enjoyable.
  8. Another example with the GX85. The shoot was a bit of a disaster! Record company said they needed the video for the next week. We had a Sunday to shoot. Only one venue available. Picked up lights on Saturday. Group arrived late on Sunday. Get to the location and plug in the lights...fuse switches off! We could only use overhead fluorescent lights! Arrrrgh! Anyway, the GX85 held up quite well all things considered. Lenses: SLR Magic 12mm T1.6 and Voigtlander 25mm F0.95. A mixture of 4K and 1080 50p
  9. Neumann Films, how were the VF and LCD for manual focus in 4K? Were the clear enough for critical focus?
  10. Exactly. He has decided to sell his bmpcc for a gh2. I'm not sure of the logic in that. I'm suggesting that he looks at other ways of getting the money together to fund his film. Anyway, good luck with your choices and project!
  11. Sorry Jon, I think you missed the point of my post! He has a good camera, he might not need to sell it to buy a cheaper one to fund his film. What else has he got lying around that he can sell? Sell your iPod, get a cheaper phone...whatever, fund your film that way. It's true that story, light etc all count more than the camera. It's seems his problem is not the camera, as he has a good one, but funding.
  12. I'm not sure it's a good idea to be selling and buying new equipment all the time. You'll probably lose money that way. You have a great camera in the bmpcc, why don't you stick with that? Do you have anything else you have lying around that you don't need that you can sell? It's amazing how selling stuff we don't use can add up to a bigger sum quite quickly.
  13. I'll up that. The greatest camera ever that can do everything for 1000€ to be delivered after the next blue moon.
  14. Anyone tested how easy it is to manual focus on the GH5, both in the lcd and vf?
  15. Doesn't Facebook 'own' the videos if you upload them directly to Facebook?
  16. Here's a low budget music video I made with the GX85 and a cheap toy 25mm 1.7 cctv lens. The look is meant to be dirty but what was great was that the GX85, with it's great IBIS, enabled me to get the movement I was wanting. We tried with a Canon C100 and it just wasn't the same. It's an incredibly versatile little camera.
  17. Is it me or did the whisky video seem a bit wobbly in places? Another question about the dual card slots, can both be used to record at maximum quality at the same time (instant back up)?
  18. I'm a little bit further ahead than you in the transition from Canon to Panasonic. My main reasons are size, weight and IBIS. I have a C100 and it's an amazing camera but it gets really heavy on long run and gun shoots. I have tried a couple of Lumix lenses, 25 1.7 and 42.5 1.7 and whilst the image is nice enough I really don't like the mf feel. It's just plain rubbish. AF is ok if you just don't want it to change focus mid shot. They can't do continuous AF reliably. I bought a SLR Magic 12 1.6 and a Voightlander 25 0.95 secondhand and they really are enjoyable to use. They are all manual but the focus rings are just right in my opinion. They are much heavier than the Lumix lenses but lighter and smaller than the Canons and are designed for the m4/3 cameras. If you don't mind mf they are great and worth testing. I haven't tried speed booster and Canon lens set up as I don't want the weight which, as I said, is one of the reasons for getting into m4/3.
  19. Mini emergency. I have reset the GX85s settings but when I record in 4k the screen shows loads of aliasing in wide shots when I press record. Is there a setting to have the screen in best quality?
  20. Niii! Exactly. I thought the old Sony slogan of "Wolf nipple chips, get them while they're hot! They're lovely!" was a bit close to the bone (don't try to put an a6300 in you shirt pocket after shooting 4k for 15mins...er.. seconds).
  21. Same old Panasonic, they never listen to their customers. I asked for newt and curly kale smell. Or at least charred meat like Sony. Hamsters and elderberries are never going to cut it in lowlight. I need something more pungent to be able to find my camera in the dark.
