  1. I use this: https://www.amazon.com/Ansso-Battery-Supply-Aviation-Connector/dp/B07MZLRKRN/ You can mount it directly to a cage or put it on a rail block. I prefer to use V Mount at this point though. If I'm going to rig the camera up, I prefer to have tons of juice.
  2. I'm with you, Shirozina. I've yet to see a single clear example of this in either my own footage or anyone else's. For a problem that is apparently so obvious, no one has been able to demonstrate it dead to rights at anything less than like 600% zoom.
  3. Has anyone actually proven this to be useful in practice? I remember when the GH4 (or maybe NX1) first came out a bunch of people were talking about how amazing it will be to oversample the 4K into wonderful HD with a greater bit depth and color space. I expected to see all sorts of amazing footage coming from the added image quality. But, I never actually saw anyone doing it. Is this all theoretical?

    Davinci Resolve 16

    Yeah that was a bit of a shock to me. I had cash in hand if it was available now at $395... $995 is pretty steep IMO
  5. No, I will not wait. MUST WATCH NOW. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
  6. Biggest news of the day: they added a headphone jack AND it's in an even better spot than on the GH5. Lower down the body means more rotation for the screen when headphones are in.
  7. I noticed a bug today with the new firmware update for the Metabones Ultra SB EF. The touch AF is absolutely horrible on the Sigma 18-35mm in BRAW. But, switch it over to any flavor of ProRes and it’s pretty decent. Along those same lines, the same lens setup works horribly with the Bluetooth+ app’s manual focus slider in BRAW, but is perfect in ProRes.
  8. Even more than 2 years after release the best GH5 replacement is... another GH5 There's no other camera that ticks all the boxes of the GH5. Some cameras like the XT-3 come close, but they're all missing something: IBIS or 10 bit or flip screen or EVF or good battery life or XLR adapter, etc. It has it all. Just my take.
  9. What @Anaconda_ was saying, and what my experience has been as well, is that the camera does NOT corrupt the file when the battery dies. Rather, it successfully closes out the file before shutting down.
  10. How about the Canon XF400? Much smaller than the XF305 and has the latest specs.
  11. This has happened to me way too many times and it stressed me out beyond words. We've got TSA Pre-check here in the States that avoids this situation. Well worth the investment.
  12. I was very fortunate to be one of the first in the U.S. to get one so I can't really say if it was worth the wait. I can say that it is an absolutely wonderful camera to work with. The image is spectacular at basically any setting, even ProRes LT. The interface is very intuitive and the combination of touchscreen and physical controls feels just right. I keep mine pretty built up actually. This was always going to be my "cinema" camera. I use several GH bodies for my photo/video work; they typically stay stripped down. I feel this camera needs a little help to reach the level of usability I need. At the most stripped down, I keep it in the SmallRig full cage with the Metabones XL bolted on and a tripod plate attached.
  13. Yes 128GB 95MB/s ones. UHD ProRes HQ no problem. You can even do raw 4:1.
