    a6500 - Gh2
  1. And deliver in Full Frame... I totally relate with your struggle with using manual lenses. Be aware that plenty of s1h owners might be using an external monitor so even though focus peaking is working they might not be using it in as much as you intend to. Thanks for sharing your experience with the S1, it confirms that it would be a awful purchase for me as well
  2. No punch in to check focus while recording... is this acceptable for a 4000$ video (hybrid) camera? Are we suppose to trust that pulsing, outdated AF technology, with native glass and be done with it? What's the point of having such a great EVF, and a fully articulated screen if you have to have an external monitor to make sure your focus is spot on?
  3. I wasn't aware that this wasn't possible on the GH5 or S1. This is a huge drawback for anyone using MF. I use it every time on the sony a6500 and its not something I can do without. The more I learn about this camera the less I care about it... ?
  4. All due respect Andrew, its hard to wrap my head around such limitation for a hight end camera coming from Panasonic. Its not the 180 rule that bothers me, it's why oh why is there such a limitation in the first place, and secondly, on the technical side, the dread of having clips auto exposing mid shot. ? Does the G9 or any other newer model have this control limitation (newer that my gh2)? Am I being too harsh on thinking panasonic is playing "the canon hand" here, and protecting the S1H sales... (which they are not, because most can't afford 4000 euros body only, and they will just go get the a7III and forget about 10bit). I am a wedding videographer, that is pretty much it, but I would love to do other kind of work... thats why 10bit 4.2.2 and 14 stops makes me want this camera (by the way It's not a full time job, so I am not a pro ? ) Anyway like any mortal, I have a weak spot for shallow depth of field and this is where the FF is the next step for me and that is why m4/3 isn't. I hate the ergonomics of my a6500, the color sucks, the rolling shutter on a tele lens makes people faces wobble when they jump or dance to fast... But hey, when there is no time to mount the ND I rather expose using high shutter speeds and keeping my aperture where i want it to be, and if the shot its overexposed for a second or so, well, I rather have that than the camera moving my exposure in a middle of a take ( the camera "auto settings look" - which is painful to deal with in post / color correction as well) . I had such high hopes on this system, and I really like panasonic as a brand, the ergonomics are right, the size is right the IBIS is a dream for my m42 collection, the colour not so good but Vlog seems promising... but If I am finally moving up and spending so much money on a body that wont be able easily replicate a shot that I do so often in my a6500 its not acceptable. Cheers!
  5. How about the slow motion limitations, has anyone manage to find how to have shutter and ISO control when recording at high frame rates? ?
  6. After using Resolve steadily now for more than 2 years I still find it a bit slower than premiere to do edit work, but the advantages are there and Resolve it is my go to NLE. The fact is I am so used to using the power windows and the color wheals on Resolve that doing color correction or color grading on premiere doesn't work for me no more. I haven't venture much into the fusion tab, and I got to go to AE for any kind of animation work, and for serious sound design or audio post I still go over cubase.
  7. They clearly wanted to be first at 6k... Just a marketing manoeuvre. 6k 3:2 ?? No prores, no phase detection, no ibis.. it almost makes the S1 look inexpensive.
  8. Also, according to S1 owners, they should add shutter speed control when shooting in slow motion...
  9. you guys saw this? https://techcrunch.com/2019/04/29/why-did-last-nights-game-of-thrones-look-so-bad-here-comes-the-science/?tpcc=ECFB2019&fbclid=IwAR3rmX7lCyC3OqZIx1ezvxDNyAxU26dY1QkP6ofpmT_K5vKNapes-F8U6aQ&guccounter=1&guce_referrer_us=aHR0cHM6Ly9sLmZhY2Vib29rLmNvbS8&guce_referrer_cs=AbJe0hqmHAY-446tUkrXyw The DP's choice to shoot it this dark would always have issues duo to HBO compression. The codec can't handle well grays so lots of detail got lost
  10. Can you please explain why? I usually go for handheld using vintage glass so I am clearly missing out. Thanks!
  11. Looks great, too bad is not really 50mm 1.2 due to crop factor...
  12. Its a shame the xt3 does not have IBIS. For handheld shotting with adapted vintage lenses, it won't cut it...
  13. I agree. I wouldn't be surprised or mad if I got some strikes in my account... Fair enough I tried creating a free account. Got to the part where I had to enter an SMS code, but I can't receive the SMS code. Tried twice. Will give it another chance later. Thanks
  14. For me vimeo is just a portfolio for wedding videos. I do use music that I do not own the rights for, and that was the main reason to use Vimeo as it could bypass facebook copyright algorithmic scan. Not anymore though... and for that reason, I'm no longer a premium account user. Is it expensive? having trouble creating an account
