    I love how that Vazen 28mm looks on the GH5 - it almost feels like it was made for it. Shame it's not a bit cheaper

    Some time ago I looked at the skin tones from a range of demo videos from the camera manufacturers, including ARRI LF, Canon, etc and I found that the skin tones on those videos were almost always contained between the indicator line and the line of pure red.  Canon was the most red, and ARRI had a few tones slightly to the left of the indicator line, but it wasn't that far, and their tones were very yellow.
    The profile above is very interesting to me because I can see that:
    skin tones are pretty good it's compressed in the G/M axis both through saturation as well as by rotating the colours towards those hues, which is common amongst film emulations that try and put more things on the orange/teal dimension it's shifted warm, which you can see by comparing how saturated the red and yellow points are compared to the cyan and blue points are Fun stuff, and great result  
    I wonder if the client was happy with the results, I'd imagine so.

    Fun test made by Ted Harder on the Panasonic GH5 and GH5s Group on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/groups/pansonicgh5/permalink/2299318990367796/
    It seems that Natural with +4 HUE has the most accurate skin tones..

    This is such a grey topic. On one hand it is art, on the other art isn't a justification to being a bit of a prick and invading peoples privacy. I don't mind him doing this but I understand why Fujifilm pulled the ad back.

    I can see both sides of this argument, but personally I'd feel very uncomfortable doing this, and when I see anyone taking a photo in my general direction, I always turn my back to them.
    In public spaces, you don't 'own' your face in this regard, there's no legal reason for someone to ask your permission for a photo, and they don't owe you anything from the profits they may make from it. That doesn't mean it isn't rude. 
    I straight up disagree with your privacy statement Andrew, these days privacy is rare and if we don't hang onto every last shred of it, there won't be any left at all. 
    Paparazi sitting in a bush taking photos through someones windows could be their art, but I whole heartedly think that is very wrong. In the UK, that's legally fine, so long as the photographer is standing on public property. Morally it's disgusting.

    Adam Kuźniar reacted to Cinegain in The GH5 isn’t a Cinema Camera   
    Gotta be controversial here and say some of the scenes don't blend very well. One looks like a million bucks big screen type of stuff, the other more of a small YouTube webseries video vibe. Though more than anything, I think post-production has made it stand out and make it still stick together. Fine grading. Let's not forget about sound design, that was bloody brilliant. Everyone can go out and get a GH5. It's those who master the things beyond the camera where the difference is really being made and where there's so much potential to still grow for me personally.

    To be honest with you I only use HLG because it's the highest DR profile besides V-Log which I don't have 😄 I think I'd use V-Log if I had it. HLG has some problems with a weird green cast that.. crap, now that I'm thinking about it I think I did have -1 on hue on that particular shoot because of that, but I went back to 0 because FilmConvert seems to correct it very well.

    Don't get me wrong but it definitely looks like it was shot in 2014  It just shows that if you have a good story you can make it happen on anything.

    All I really do on this project is mess around with the RAW settings, slap the FilmConvert on and call it a day and I don't really want to buy another version just for Resolve. 
    Plus I'm so much faster editing multicam shoots in Premiere than I am in Resolve and if I can keep the entire project to one program I will

    Although I'm not the person you asked, I often edit in Premiere and on those projects, I find it much easier to grade in Lumetri rather than round tripping. This way, you can do a rough edit, rough grade, fine tune the edit, adjust the grade, tweak the audio, tweak the grade, add titles, tweak the grade leave it over night, tweak the grade with fresh eyes and then export. 
    I'm sure it's different for everyone, and workflows differ, but rarely am I totally happy with my first grade, and even if I think I am happy with it, watching the project again will prove myself wrong. If I had to roundtrip for every pass I'd waste even more time for not very much gain.
    For this reason, when I can I also edit in Resolve, but due to client criteria, that's not always possible. I'm also much quicker with Premiere than I am with Resolve and when your workflow wastes as much time as mine, claiming back as many seconds as you can really helps.

    You're completely right and I've decided I need to borrow one from a friend, shoot some stuff and see if it works for me. Not gonna switch because of a feeling ?

    Best approach is to work out what you’re missing and then either fix that or give yourself a reality check..
    For example, if you’re chasing good autofocus then you should consider why you need AF in the first place, and if using a deeper DoF would fix it, for example.  The reality check is to assume you just bought an A7iii, so just donate $4K to charity to simulate the financial hit of being locked into the Sony lens rort, then take all your 10-bit footage and batch convert it to 8-bit and apply a sickly green WB to simulate the experience in post.
    There’s currently no FF camera that can do everything the GH5 does without giving up something.  Even the S1H (which won’t fix your AF envy) will still hit the CC pretty hard and IIRC is bigger and heavier than the GH5.
    The grass always looks greener, but often it tastes just as bad, but in a different way.....

    Then there are no BRAW settings since I'm targeting the timeline clip, not the master one. 
     
    I've found it fixes itself after restarting Premiere and reimporting the clip but then for some reason breaks again after a couple of minutes.

    Here is a 90 sec profile doc I just finished. Shot primarily in HLG but with some slow motion shots in Cine-D. Graded in Resolve with FilmConvert. Primarily shot on the leica 12-60 and some shots on sigma 18-35 with speedbooster.

    I was told that 10bit H.265/HEVC codec will be available at official launch.
    But looking at some raw footage, it just looks oversharpened and mushy with aggressive NR. There are some of the most brilliant engineers on the dev team but adding an imaging expert would definitely be able to take them to the next level.
