  1. I prefer A since his face looks very slightly green on my monitor in version B.
  2. One of the reason I got the R5 over the R6 was because I knew there would be some hidden crippling of the R6. On the other hand, I never use aperture priority for video, so I wouldn't really mind this, but I can see how it's annoying that they omit something they could easily include. What happens when you click the video record button on the R6? On the R5 I can program it to jump into exactly what video options I chose which is very useful. That does of course mean that I won't be able to preview expose correctly if I'm in photo mode.
  3. Notice how they have turned the screen inwards on the GH5II to hide the only meaningful size difference.
  4. Skip the background music or turn it way down. It's competing with your voice, and while it might work in a quiet room you have to remember that half of the audience will listen to it while on a noisy subway or in the shower. I am looking forward to seeing future videos. You've got the technique down (short and fairly well paces), but finding interesting topics will be key to keep the audience attention.
  5. How bad is the picture quality of a telepromter? Doing teams-calls all day I've been looking into getting a telepromter-style monitor for presentations, but I would like to know whether they are: 1) Good enough to read text 2) Good enough to do powerpoint-presentations 3) Good enough to do write documents and do normal work without feeling handicaped(like a monitor) I am sure they are good enough for 1), but I doubt they are good enough for 3)
  6. Oh my. I've been a happy eBay buyer for hundreds of items, and I've been surprised by how good service I've been getting from 99% of the sellers. This post clearly shows that I wouldn't want to be in their shoes. Fortunately my local classified ads have been working great for selling my gear with in-person delivery, and I will continue using that so that I'll never have to deal with something like this.
  7. I got the Panasonic 25mm 1.7 for 140 USD. It's focusing motor is good (the problem is the cameras focusing). The manual focus is terrible, but so is the 20mm (not sure about the 25mm Leica). If you want better manual focus I would recommend the Olympus f1.2 lenses. I've got the 17mm one, which had great reviews. The reviews of the Olympus 25mm 1.2 were not as good though. It doesn't really make sense to get both the 20mm and 25mm. It would be better to switch one of them for a 17 or 45mm.
  8. I found 8K RAW to not be as difficult to edit as I had feared. On my Intel 8700K/RTX2070 it wasn't exactly smooth in Davinci Resolve, but absolutely doable to edit.
  9. With how fast Canon are discontinuing EF lenses, I can't see how they can release them with the EF-mount.
  10. The variable ND adapter for EF to RF works quite well. The only annoying thing is that the clear filter is just as expensive as buying a non-ND adapter. If you get the R6 you would also have an excellent photo camera. If it's only for video use I wouldn't really recommend the R6 since many people have had problems with overheating. The R6/R5 has excellent focus though, and even the manual focus is better than other cameras. It will tell how far off you are from achieving focus, which direction you have to focus and the focus guide will snap to the subjects eyes if you want it to. I am ext
  11. In that case, the only real reason to use RAW CLOG would be to match it with other CLOG clips. I would rather protect my own highlights in ISO 100, and as long as nothing is clipping, ETTR with normal RAW should provide optimal results. I still haven't looked much into the different colour spaces. With RAW, I would guess it has no impact. Even without RAW (at least for rec709 delivery), I am not sure it would make much of a difference since the bit depth stays the same, but I would be like to see if someone could show some objective advantages of choosing one colour space over the other.
  12. Technically, I guess it is possible to apply a curve even though they are not debayered. A log-curve is just changing the representation of the values (usually compressing the range from what has been read out from ADC to reduce the bit-depth requirement), which can be performed on non-RGB values. However, as long as RAW uses 12-bits, I don't think there is any reason to apply a log-curve. That's the video that confused me in the first place. The only explanation I can think of for how RAW CLOG works would be for the CLOG to simply add metadata to the RAW file (which is still recorded
  13. I believe the a7s has custom mode 1 and 2 on the mode wheel. Set one with the options for video and one for photo. Have you tried using this? I remember setting the modes on my RX1RM2 was a bit off a hassle. I had to turn the camera on and off after saving the modes for them to be recognizable. The Canon R5 has different video modes, and you can also customize which mode the camera should record in when you click the "Record video" button. This makes it possible to shoot photos in your prefered photo mode when you click the photo button (For example aperture mode) and as soon as you click
  14. I really don't understand how RAW CLOG works, especially when the press release includes this line: How is it possible to record RAW in 4:2:2? As far as I knew 4:2:2 was only used for debayered RGB. I guess it's possible to use it for bayered pixels as well? At first I thought it would revert to h265 when choosing RAW and clog at the same time, but then I saw the video linked below where they are talking extensively about RAW CLOG. So what is the difference between RAW and RAW CLOG? I assume RAW is 12 bit "4:4:4". Is RAW CLOG 10 bit 4:2:2? In that case I would think the
  15. My only issue is that I've gotten so used to the Variable-ND adapter that it will be annoying to transition to RF lenses. I am hoping for a EF-RF tilt-shift adapter, but that would make the transition even harder.
