    Yannick Willox reacted to EphraimP in Their.Tube - YouTube completely in bed with QAnon, etc. promoting bullshit for clicks   
    I think you're misunderstanding me. I'm specifically referring to Newfoundmass's post that "their main page basically recommended alt-right and Newsmax pro-Trump videos on my first visit." That's what I have a problem with, not the underlying technology. And saying that the the alt-right (led by the Orange Dumpsterfire in the Whitehouse) is attempting to destroy democracy in America is not "hysterical hyperbole." The huge push to try to invalidate our presidential election through the alt-right media and the courts is having, and will have, long lasting effects on our election system. It's not trivial. And you can add the long-term voter suppression push from the right targeting (mostly) people of color and nakedly partisan gerrymandering of electoral districts to that. No good.

    Seeking out multiple sources of information from different viewpoints is one thing. Supporting a platform that gives voice to or promotes dangerous, falsehood filled propaganda channels like Newsmax is another. I'm sorry, but I can't get behind anything that remotely smacks of the whole Parler fake "free speech" alt-right echo chamber. These people are actively trying to destroy democracy over here and actually killing people and plotting terrorist acts. So, yeah, if LBRY is promoting their content on any part of it service, I for one am not going to use them at all.

    But you can change the order, of vst plugins anyway. You just need to know how ... the inspector panel is a hint, as are some arrow like thingies where you can accidentally click on. That is how I found out anyway...

    Yes, but even with 3 r5 cams you cannot do one shoot ...
    a 12k ursa is actually cheaper ...
    same goes for the glass if you already have it !

    Yannick Willox reacted to karoliina in My Canon EOS R5 recording 8K video 50 minutes straight   
    I paid 4900 euros for the camera and expected to be able to shoot at least 4K HQ with it as much as I can when placed preorder. I aknowledged that there could be problems with 8K video, but I was not worried because 4K HQ 10 bit 422 would be fine with me most of the time. And it turns out the cripple timer cripples also the 4K HQ. 

    I think apologist attitude "oh yeah Canon has all the right" smells deeply rotten. I don't care what Canon thinks, they have ruined the video capabilities of the expensive camera I purchased and traded my 1DX mark II (which did not overheat even in 4K 60p) to. I expected the new camera to be better than the 1DX mark II in video. And it came with Jesus-specs that would show Sony who is the king of video. Then it turns out, after already paying the camera (had to pay in advance to actually get it), that it has timer that ruins all usable video modes. The low quality pixel binned 4K mode most definitely is not what I traded my 1DX mark II for. Because 1DX mark II was able to do high quality 4K all day long, no C-log, but it had EOSHD-C-log installed which was fine. With this timer, my choices are worse image quality than the camera it replaces or live with the timer I never expected to even exist. Canon has betrayed me as a customer. I am not so rich that it would be indifferent to me as a customer if I get fooled by a manufacturer that sells intentional lemons instead of products they marketed.
    Canon has no excuses to treat its customers like this. It is despicable. I have no reason to be kind and with apologist attitude towards Canon and than them for ruining my video shooting experience in contrast to the previous camera I had from them. I did not buy this camera for its 4K low quality mode. I could have bought Sony A7RIV instead, if I wanted a camera with pixel binned low quality video, high dynamic range sensor and high megapixel count for still photography. I bought the Canon instead because I expected it to perform better as a hybrid camera than the Sony A7RIV as it had all the things I had been wishing for: 10 bit video, raw video, full sensor readout, Canon DPAF, eye-AF etc. in the same package. It looked like the perfect camera for me. However, Canon completely ruined the video shooting abilities of this camera to category "not suitable for shooting video", unlike marketed, and unlike what I paid for. 
    I will use any hack available to shoot video with my R5. And if Canon "fixes it" in the next firmware releases by removing these hack capabilities, I will never upgrade the firmware.

    Yannick Willox reacted to Hanriverprod in EOSHD testing finds Canon EOS R5 overheating to be fake   
    What really bugs me is when they say some company sent them the product but they are not sponsored and that we will get an honest review. It's like wtf. The whole reason your channel has relevancy is because these companies send you these products early for you to do your 'honest' review which consists of gushing over how awesome the product is except for one little flaw that's not a big deal.
    Let's be real, these guys cream all over themselves to exchange emails with companies like Sony and Canon and Apple and Samsung about new product launches and there is no way they can be objective at all regardless of whether they say its sponsored or not. Either they got the product early or they are building their channel up to get the product early. And you can't do that by burning bridges.
    So to mediate this conundrum they find themselves in they say they did not send the video to be checked. Doesn't matter. They are psychologically chained to make sure they keep these corporations happy so they can keep getting their emails and possibility of early product reviews.
    They keep the video 95% positive and then mention some weak point every one already knows while basically showing a 10 minute commercial of tracking shots of said product.
    They then every once in a while pick a product from a smaller company to trash or do a really honest review not concerned with a backlash from that company.
    The only exception is when the corporation releases a real stinker of a product and everyone knows which gives them cover to post an 'honest' review.
    These people are basically marketing mouthpieces and pretend like they are doing us a service when they are just basically a new cog in an overhyped consumerist economy.

    Yannick Willox reacted to Adrian Bacon in I bought a Canon EOS R5 - potential overheating solutions   
    I differ in opinion.
    If I where using it as designed, yes. The fact of the matter is that canon disclosed up front that there are recording limits. They can not anticipate every single usage scenario, so provided generic guidelines.. it’s not realistic to expect them to know how every single user is going to use their camera.
    I’ll answer with a question: do you find yourself implicitly trusting every advertisement you see? I don’t and I seriously doubt that you do.

    Of course they are still selling them with the IR issue.  Brilliant is not the word I would use for unstable color.

    The info says they will fit any camera using the lp-e6, which does not mean the p4k will actually use more than 50% of the capacity without a firmware update. But maybe that is a pessimistic view ...

    Just to give a heads up, IMO the T5 drives are EOL. Stocks are drying up (the  1TB anyway).
    I just posted the following over at the Blackmagicdesign forum, I have some interesting observations re T5 speed - I did not find any mention anywhere one should update the firmware of the T5 drives, even recent ones.
    I just got a bunch of new T5s before they run out of stock, and after using a 1TB T5 for 6 months that actually does not record as high bitrates as my cheap 256GB SD card I tried updating to the latest firmware on the T5.
    It is much quicker now, also when connected to PC and writing to it. Previously I only got 300 MB/s peak, which drops down to 130 MB/s after say 40 GB.
    At this very moment my P4K is recording BRAW at max resolution a 60 fps at 3:1 compression ratio (=270 MB/s). I'm 4 minutes far, no dropped frames, still recording ! (that's 64 GB, after which the write speed remains constant for sure)
    I would recomend downloading the Samsung T5 utility and updating the firmware. This does not seem documented at all.
    This means my 500 GB T5 is not on the supported media list for braw 3:1 60 fps, but after the firmware update, it works !
    Does anyone here have similar experiences ?
    This would mean any T5 with correct firmware would be able to do 6K full res at 24p on a bmpcc 6K !

    Yannick Willox reacted to BTM_Pix in AF Adapter Development Thread - Sneakest of Sneak Peeks   
    Remember it ?
    All the usual caveats of "absolutely not its final form" but thought I'd show a (very) rough glimpse of its (very) rough format.
    Things have been quiet on it publicly because as I said in the very original thread that what was first shown was merely a jumping off point and it pivoted into what is now a very different product.
    As you should now be able to guess from this image, it is doing something a little different and offers both AF-S and AF-C modes for, lets just say, more than one focus target  
    The purpose of this thread, aside from the update to prove its not slid into Sony A7S-III territory, is to provide little updates on what is happening as we edge towards release of the actual product particularly as the previous thread is a bit defunct in terms of what its final form will now be.
    I'll put up some video samples soon, although @Andrew Reid has had some over the past month so should be able to vouch for it actually working  
    I won't be getting too much into the detail about whats going on under the hood until later on and I will be doing a blog post with Andrew to provide more insight nearer the time of pre-orders which should be in August.
    FYI, the cables you can see are powering the PBC and not going to the camera so no camera mod is required !
    So, for now, fire away if you have any questions if you have any interest in it but if you can please just keep it to general operational stuff.

    MFT is a great format indeed. When I mean dismiss any of them, I meant to ignore either of both actually. You can surely skip one of those if you have the other one, of course : ) But this camera series is a dream come true, my fav acquisition system ever designed, produced and delivered to my book : -)
    Mainly shot on P6K, here's a trailer of a feature film co-produced by me currently @ post production:

    More than a year later, seems like braw is a much underrated codec.
    It edits quite easily on a budget pc, does not generate huge files, and is free to use for other manufacturers.
    There is nothing like the p4k for the money, i needed resolve studio, so the bmpcc4k actually cost me 950 euro. More so, because I already had some decent m43 lenses.
    The 6k is another story, plenty of competition there.
