  1. Beg to differ, my experience is just the reverse one. With P4K (Braw) one can do what ones wants, go in both directions ("organic" vs "digital"); not with GH5. Yellow-red shift could depend on lenses, settings, lights etc. "Run & Gun" section also depends on what one is shooting.
  2. Dji Osmo Pocket is great little tool for events and video-notes around. A week ago I took it to the retrospective exhibition of Marina Abramovich, a leading conceptual performing artist, here in Belgrade's Museum of Contemporary Art (the exhibition was going around in many countries in Europe in the past 2 years). I made the video only in one shot (long 25 minutes); the lights, mixture of daily light through big museum windows and different lights inside, exhibition screens, reflectors, leds, etc., the light was impossible for shooting. Also big crowd going in all directions, on the opening day, my camera was actually in the pocket of my jacket.. This is a shot not graded, just out of the Osmo Pocket as it was taken (only speeded from time to time when the scene was unimportant), with sound also from the Osmo Pocket:
  3. MOZA AirCross 2 (1Kg weight, 3.2Kg payload, the battery up to 12 hours, follow focus, two versions: Standard version with $429, and Professional kit with $499 which has three more items than standard version: Arca-Swiss Quick release Plate, Phone Holder, and iFocus-M, etc), and at 50" it seems BMPCC 4K is supported:
  4. A very interesting test of Rick Lang on BM forum (here) : a comparison between Q0 and Q5. One his conclusions: "Q0 versus Q5? Of course Q0 must be better because it’s a lot higher data rate. The design goal of the ‘Q' is a quality image and how could Q5 match Q0 with so much less data? In a word: it’s Blackmagic. Sometimes some elements in either Q5 or Q0 are ‘better’ than the other; it’s not a race in which one runner is in the lead throughout the race. Q5 makes some sacrifices that you can see, but it seems to have some less understood running style and I have to admit in this video, it emerges victorious, not only in fidelity but also edge sharpness."
  5. We are on the similar line of thinking, it seems to me (subtle, almost "unnoticable", more unconscious-driven repetitions of little patterns). And, after you finish, let it remain for a day or two (or more, better), and than come back and give to it the "final cut". Your task is to find a shape to a mass of clips, to arrange a chaos, and also you could use, perhaps, the school so-called "3 minutes" rule (i.e. after every 3 minutes sequence put something diffrent, or begin a new sequence). - All I say is "theoretical", of course, and just suggestions, but sometimes it helps. ? Good luck! (I also use, very often, XC10 for docos, now combined with DJI Osmo Pocket which is better than my 6+ iPhone because of stabilisation and 4K. P4K is when I want to go special. ? )
  6. @kye Just a suggestion: find the clips that could be organized in repetition (like leit-motifs), it could help to the structure of the whole. Another suggestion: since in every artwork the meaningful end comes usually before the actual last element, find the end beforehand (I tend to have 2-3 endings, as a kind of a coda).
  7. It reminds me of The Borgias (Showtime TV series, 2011-13, with Jeremy Irons), which was good for the first 2 seasons, but in the 3rd went down into BS, and was cancelled abruptly. ?

    Yeah, so I plan to get eGPU this summer. ?
  9. Lot of comparisons (cDNG / BRAW) here: https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=91802

    Have you first (right-click) Change Clip Speed... ad change it, and then in Inspector do Retime and Scaling > Optical Flow, and Speed Warp (all in Edit page)? My MacMini 2018 has Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB, and it is also lousy GPU, not much better than yours on MBP, but it works (slowly, very slowly).

    It's no longer there (since DR 15.2.2). But you can find Duplicata Current Timeline in the Edit page > click on timeline > Edit (in the menu). See link.
  12. Another blow to GoT: link. A coffee cup left on the table.
  13. Probably true. But anyway, the video (even so called documentary) could be a mixture of the real and the ilusion (in technical terms). An example: I work with 3 teams of my students - within the course on "Citizen Journalism and Video Reporting" - on some videos: topics are volunteers action (cleaning the neibourghood, helping hendicaped or older people, and similar). Students are supposed to shoot with their mobile phones, both the theme itself and to shoot them shooting the theme. Another team of students (and myself) also shoot in parallel with "pro" cameras (P4K, Canon 200C, Canon XC10). And in post, 80% of materials are from these "pro" cameras. They give us - technically and educationally - better shots. The general public on TV will see only the mobiles shooting. ?
  14. It is some cheap (Hama) shoulder support. I bought it 2-3 years ago for some 10-15 euros. Now I can find only on this site (and it is 40 euros ?; it seems no longer produced so the price is way up). Retractable and easy to put into the bag, mounts in 5 seconds. Another example for shoulder support: And another one, when I want to go wild. ?
