  1. 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!
  2. How about the slow motion limitations, has anyone manage to find how to have shutter and ISO control when recording at high frame rates? 🤔
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Also, according to S1 owners, they should add shutter speed control when shooting in slow motion...
  6. 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
  7. Can you please explain why? I usually go for handheld using vintage glass so I am clearly missing out. Thanks!
  8. Looks great, too bad is not really 50mm 1.2 due to crop factor...
  9. Its a shame the xt3 does not have IBIS. For handheld shotting with adapted vintage lenses, it won't cut it...
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. In my opinion, I'm glad they haven't released the A7sIII. Otherwise, this post would be about how the camera falls short in comparison to other cameras. For me, the delay means they know that they need to keep improving to maintain market growth and they don't want to release an outdated camera. If they were Canon I am sure the camera would be out already and would not address the technological expectations costumers have for it (10bit 4k 60p) They have been delivering great products at a very fast rate these last years. The a7III is still a very new and good option for anyone looking into buying a FF camera. Better late than sorry, no?
  13. I shoot events on Sony a6500 with adapted glass most of the times. IBIS on the a6500 is bad in comparison to the GH5 but its fundamental to get any handheld out of it. I also use AFC with a 35mm sony lens for gimbal shots. If I was to buy a new camera in 2018, IBIS and AF are a must have for the kind of shooting I do. However, I can easily understand that other kinds of projects don't need IBIS or AF
  14. Ken posts almost every day. Many of his content is about lenses, cameras, and magnetism ... anyway there are also plenty of videos where he trashes other youtube channels such as Tony and Chelsea, Jason photography (who filed a lawsuit against him 😄@) , Jared Polin, DPreview, Petapixel and also camera fanboys in general. @ Yurolov -50mm
  15. Ken, the "Angry Photographer" is great! Bought a few vintage lenses he recommended. In my eyes, Ken mentioning EOSHD is the best praise there is. Not sure he knows this is a more video oriented site because is not into video much... For those who don't know the channel here is a couple of my favorite videos: After some other channel made a (bad) tutorial on how to clean your camera: And on the new Nikon Z cameras
  16. I understand Dan. Thanks. I guess I was wrong.
  17. Sorry, which video? I get the point... just shocked at the evidence presented, and quite possible in denial
  18. Can't do the test because I don't own a FF camera. (have a panasonic 25mm, sony E mount 35, and bunch of vintage lenses, vivitar 24mm f2.8(not sure), super takumar 50mm f1.4, jupiter 85 f2, super takumar 135mm f3.5, mamiya 200 f3.5. As for the or the lego test, I am not sure I understood the results... 1/4 sensor and 2mm lens- what is this? anyway sorry the distances from the camera are not the same, and the results are not clear either because there is no background. But damm I really would like to be proven wrong, and I appreciate your replys and the topic. nope there is wall behind us... we can't go back further.
  19. I do own a gh2 and a a6500 with turbo booster (0.7 crop)... so not a FF yet
  20. I don't agree at all. Its not about DOF. Its about distortion and compression. FF is not just about DOF and all m4/3 users should understand how optics affect the image .You can't get a 50mm look in a m4/3 with a 25mm. You can however buy a speed booster, use FF lenses to get an approximated look...
  21. What about lens distortion and lens compression?? -> shooting portraits with 50mm in a FF is not the same as a 25mm in a m4/3...
  22. Have you checked the new SmallHD Focus? Looks promising! I
  23. i've installed an free light app that allows to change kelvin values. I am not using EOSHD color so I am not sure this will help at all for nailing those WB settings. Pocket Softbox (using android)
  24. I am using Resolve 12.5 for editing for 5 or 6 months now. (I was using it just for (learning) color grading at first) Looking back, sure the stabiliser isn't as good as Premiere's but that is about what I miss the most in edit side of things... From the color grading point of view, Resolve is by far a more powerful tool. I've installed the free V14 in a old machine (macbook pro 2011) and I can see performance benefits. V12.5 would just crash or just freeze with UHD clips H264 on this machine. Now, well it still can't manage 4k but it does not crash and does make a better job in playing or trying to play UHD clips. I have Yosemite in my main machine along with V12.5. I will be making the move once beta is over. Looking forward to! Edit: I've also installed the free version of Fusion. I do not know after effects but I might as well try to learn Fusion instead. https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/fusion
  25. Thanks Axel. I will give this feelword a try since its already on its way, and share my thoughts after a while.
