  1. I would base my choice on the type of video’s you make. If its fast output and events that are run and gun, I’ll opt for the convenience of the z6ii. Battery live, autofocus and a color profile to get it right in camera (so forget 10 bit). Either flat or portrait with some adjustments will do. The hassle of external recording and diminishing results is what’s frustrating to you, so use the z6 to its strengths. If you have a bit more control and pre production of the shooting day, the bmpcc would be my choice.
  2. I had the chance to try out the om-1 yesterday with a omd rep in store. Also was able to try out all the pro lenses including the new 20mm and 45-150 f4. Super fun 🙂 I used it over an hour. I was really impressed with the camera. Great build and ergonomics. Loved the new evf and interface. And finally you can override the autofocus during recording with a press of a button and get peaking. Iso 6400 was grainy in video but colors hold up well. Also the grain is a nice pattern not color noise. To me it looks like a refined camera for m43 video and photography that’s is a pleasure to use.
  3. The 12-35mm pairs great with my em5iii. Ibis works just as good as the Olympus 12-40mm, autofocus is fast and silent to so no problems there. Its either ibis or lens IS, but I read that Olympus ibis is better / just as good as panasonic sync IS. Manuel focus fly by wire is not so great, very erratic. The panasonic/leice 15mm for example seems to be more linear and pleasing. Also keep in mind that weather sealing is not perfect. For that you unfortunately need Olympus on Olympus or panasonic on panasonic.
  4. Exactly the same for me. I also have and love the E-m5 iii. There are some quirks (limited options to change settings during recording) and some wishes (better preamps, 10 bit internal, usable 6400 iso and better dynamic range, pd powering) that this camera addresses. I will wait for the first reviews and OM promotion and then probably buy it.
  5. Personaly I found the quality of the loupe-lens a bit disapointing. And it made the ergonomics a little strange to handle (buttons ect)
  6. I am so excited for this camera. Realy like the concept of the hybrid camer re-imagened. Also a big plus that is doesnt need a external recorder, but goes directly to a ssd for its DNG recording. This way I can see a small m2 ssd enclosure (like the tilta bmpcc 4k mod) snugly against the side becoming a big hit. Had it in my hands at IBC and its not as imbalanced as I first thought. However, the loupe is not usable as an evf alternative for me.
  7. @shijan Is it possible and safe enough to use your batterydesign to simultaniasly power the camera and monitor?
  8. Hi xt3 owners. I have a small hd 502 monitor that only accepts 1080p input over hdmi. Can the xt3 output 1080p Flog and record in 4k Flog at the same time?
  9. Thanks for checking. Could be the older lenses or camera that I have that causes it. So I’ll have to check this for myself. And yes I also have a whole bunch of old manual lenses that I like to use :)
  10. Mm that doesn't sound good. The pannasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 is also notorious for this, but I found that I could get acceptable results with practice. Did you also experienced the same stepping issue with audible sounds on those lenses?
  11. I'm really tempted to make this my hybrid camera as I already own the xpro1 and the 35mm f/1.4 and 18mm f/2, and shoot video on a bmmcc and the panny 12-35mm f/2.8. As I only use both for personal projects, this is a bit of a hassle. The thing that holds me back is the manual fly-by-wire focussing of the native xf lenses. On the xpro1 using manual focussing (in photo mode) is horrible. It jitters and the focus is visible in 'steps', not to mention the noise (audible thuck-thuck-thuck). Even if the autofocus modes seems to be good, I would prefer to fall back on a manual focus option that is useable. Can somebody please inform me about the native xf lenses and their preformance in manual focussing mode on the xt3?
  12. So the Viltrox EF-M2 is getting al the positive reviews from GH5 users as a metabones speedbooster alternative with autofocus and auto Iris controls! http://www.viltrox.com/en/index.php?m=index&a=show&cid=145&id=181 Now I am curious: has somebody tested this adapter with the bmpcc / bmmcc?
  13. I did found a solution for those who have the same problem (no audio on custom 25/50/30/60P)! If you select one of these framerates and exit the menu. Then reopen the menu and select a different speed. Exit the menu again. Now you set the speed back to default and you can record sound again!
  14. 5.3 also. I guess that not everyone has this problem then.
