    Maybe a Phantom 3 is a very good choice, but I have to buy a GoPro too, right?


    Phantom and Mavic have inbuilt cameras in them and they are actually quite nice from the footages on Ytube. MavicPro seems way too good to be true. So small and light yet reasonably cheap for what it actually is. Watching cinemas these days and seeing dramatic areal shots, they do not look so dramatic anymore since amateurs with their drones are making these scenes left right and centre!

    The second video, the wedding one, has such strong sharpening it is distracting.

    Didn't even notice, maybe because I'm no pro so was just thinking if someone made that video for my wedding I'd be very happy! 

    Now that you pointed it out I do see some sharpening

    Very nice! 


    This last one is still private, its only due next week, but since this is a specialty forum, there should be no harm. Everything shot on the NX1+16-50s 2.8, and graded with my own Vellichor luts, available for purchase here if any of you wants to have a look - https://sellfy.com/p/HNAk/

    Hope you guys enjoy :D

    The wedding video, I couldn't stop watching, I just had to watch till the last second. Nicely done mate.

    I’m a filmmaker turned travel vlogger using the GH4.

    I’ve been shooting in Cinelike D and trying various LUTs each episode.

    For the latest episode I slapped EOSHD Pro Color on an adjustment layer across the whole episode and took the saturation down to 70%. For this fast turnaround content I look for a LUT that works across many lighting situations. EOSHD Pro Color seems to be a great fast way to add a look.

    Lumix 12-35mm
    Cinelike D (Default Settings)
    Heliopan Vari ND
    Airport shots at the end on G7X mkII

    Very nice!

    The walking and talking scenes, are you holding the camera in your hands or are you using some sort of stabilization assisting device? Thanks :)

    I was shooting a penguin in Southern New Zealand last week and followed it around with quick adjustments with the stick.

    That must've been very hard, if they were the blue penguin they are the smallest penguins in the world. 

    If they were the yellow eyed penguin then they are super rare and you better take the shot when you see one in their natural habitat (they swim in from the sea and walk towards the beach during sunset time). 

    And I'm fairly certain you didn't see the crested penguin (the ones with big yellow eyebrows) because they live deeper in the rainforest closer to west coast. 

    Anyways, point being sighting penguin and shooting them in South island isn't easy since we only have the small rare almost extinct species. You need a camera you are either very familiar with or very easy to use.

    I like the Fuji better in every way, especially the color and less rolling shutter. I have the 10-24, 16-55 and 18-55 that cover everything the 16-50s does and more, plus I have the 23/1.4, 56/1.2 and so on that cover FL's Samsung never made. The Samsung is a faster lens, but to me Fuji video is better at 6400, which is something I never shot with the NX1. I've been wanting to go Fuji for a couple years because of the lenses I always wanted Sony to make, the XT2 solved all my issues with a Fuji body including AF, 4k, 24mp sensor and so on.

    Fuji isn't going anywhere either, that's a big plus. There's a dedicated NX1 user base here though, I don't want this thread to get derailed with a NX1 vs. XT2 discussion, please open another thread if that's the goal.

    No problem sorry didn't mean to derail, thanks.

    Been shooting with the XT2 for the last two months after shooting with Sony and the NX1 recently, not sure what good ergos are if you consider the XT2 bad, and it completely outclasses anything Sony has in the same class. How are manual control dials for ISO, SS, and aperture bad, along with a better EVF and LCD than most of the competition? Plus the menus are logically organized and you can group anything that can't be included in the Q menu or placed on a custom button in the "My Menu" menu. Custom WB's are much easier than Sony too. But Sony wrote the book on poor usability, so they're easy to pick on.


    Do you miss anything on the XT2 that you had with the NX1? Is there a 16-50S equivalent or there abouts for the Fuji? My new year resolution is to stop buying gear but but Fuji as a brand looks very appealing.
