  1. Do you suggest any videos or blogs to improve competency for the camera. The XT2 was legit I turned it on and boom amazing color. I’d love to get to that point. You think the R6 color equals XT4?
  2. Thanks! I should have said Option A is really just learning from someone how to get excellent colors from Canon without using Log or Log3. Do you have any good thoughts or references? i'd like to just shoot and print or shoot and upload like I did with my XT2 years ago.
  3. Thanks! Good insight. So I am not a professional, I am a hobbyist/enthusiast - overthinking/nerd. I want to create memorable and cinematic family videos, roadtrip/travel videos, and shoot the athletes I work with (indoor gyms/outdoor tracks) ... mostly video but some photo. The SOOC color/cinematic look is by far the most important to me. I've been making mistakes jumping from system to system over a few years because I keep thinking I'm going to have the time/desire to learn to color grade etc. But I'm conceding I do not have interest or time to do so. Option A - Figure out how to get the Canon R6 to get SOOC colors on par with Fuji Option B - Replace the Canon R6 with an all-in-one Hybrid system that can cover my needs for SOOC color/cinematic feel Option C - Replace the Canon R6 with a dedicated video camera and another dedicated photo camera I understand most are paid professionals here but that is why I come to this forum - if you were in my position or advising a close friend/family member what would you say?
  4. Been trying to find a hybrid setup that really does travel, family, and sport events 70/30 video:photo the best color I had was my Fuji XT2 but the low light and autofocus sucked. Then went to a7iii and now R6. im wondering if there’s a way to get pretty excellent SOOC color as I don’t have the time to learn color grading or time ? Maybe canon and Sony aren’t for me if I’m not willing to learn. or maybe I need to get an xt4 for video and another camera for photo? Any thoughts?
  5. Nice! I got the RF35 1.8 and Tamron 70-200 2.8
  6. Looking to add VND or ND to my newly acquired 70-200 Tamron and 35mm. Using for Photo/Video combo. I was naive in the past and didn't realize how much of a color shift many create. What do you suggest? 1. VND or single ND 2. What brands to reduce color shift?
  7. https://www.amazon.com/Canon-35mm-1-8-Macro-Lens/dp/B07H4SFG4G/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=rf+35+1.8&qid=1635473609&sr=8-1
  8. Very much! How can I determine which lenses are silent/don't make noise during video? I like the RF 35 f/1.8 but i think i saw it makes some noise during focusing in video mode that is a dealbreaker despite being so afforadable!
  9. How's this: https://www.mpb.com/en-us/used-equipment/used-photo-and-video/used-lenses/used-canon-fit-lenses/tamron-sp-70-200mm-f-2-8-di-vc-usd-g2-canon-ef-fit/sku-1219845/ New: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1317271-REG/tamron_afa025c_700_sp_70_200mm_f_2_8_di.html
  10. Excellent point - going to buy a refurbished R6 today! I'm going to check into Sigma/Tamron EF mount to see if they have refurbished lenses (i.e. 70-200 f/2.8) to save a few hundred over Canon glass.
  11. Of course ... for photography, but it seems one of us is missing a direct or implied part of this conversation: photo AND video. Are you saying I should be happy making docs, sport shoots, etc. with a D500? If not, then I fail to see what you're arguing? The thread is about 1 body for both or 2 separate. If you're saying 2 separate then yes I am all about listening and learning about what photography body can get excellent photos in many conditions (fast moving sports, portraits, low light/high ISO performance without noise, etc.) but my dilemma in that is then what body for video? Same mount for sharing lenses? Will 2 bodies cost much more than going for 1 that do both (i.e. R6/A7IV)? I apologize if I've misunderstood but maybe you can clarify?
  12. Makes sense! Canon's 1 year warranty is extended to Refurbished and their new cameras so it would seem Refurbished makes sense here, I mean $200 in my pocket or toward a lens! Do you trust resellers like MBP, KEH, Adorama, BH? Or where do you go? Favorite places to buy used?
  13. Looks like the Sigma is a good alternative and savings to Canon 70-200: https://versus.com/en/canon-ef-70-200mm-f-2-8l-is-iii-usm-vs-sigma-70-200-f-2-8-dg-os-hsm-s
  14. Thanks! They said there is a 1 year warranty and the same as their new bodies so refurbished it is, I suppose.
