  1. ... for me interesting because of attempt/goal to touch everyday/transient metaphysics through aesthetic of the most austere hyper realistic images - that then I'd call "pure phenomenological poetry" Brief and full of interesting remarks dialogue between Cuaron (as own dop) and Lubezki https://www.indiewire.com/2018/12/roma-emmanuel-lubezki-alfonso-cuaron-cinematography-1202028167/ E.L. - "It does produce a feeling — hard to describe — the camera becomes almost like a consciousness revisiting the story. The camera knows something the actors do not. It’s very powerful... It feels like the camera and the cinematography are not there to illustrate; they are the film itself." A.C. - "It’s a ghost of the present visiting the past, objectively without getting involved, just observing, not trying to make a judgment or a commentary, that everything there would be just the commentary itself."

    Lenses

    Then go ahead - but from my experience any list of GAS lenses madness could not be perceived as complete without Helios (Гелиос) 40-2 85mm 1.5 ... That will swirl you at incomparable way (I call it "The best of Rachmaninov")
  3. For information about price, I sold mine for 850e (German version) last month to buyer in Italy. I kept it as last from dozen of Zaiss Contax line I had, checking if I'll be tempted to jump into FF route. (I have to admit that 35mm f2.8 was closer to my heart.)
  4. What to say with compassion, try to be patient and I hope you have possibility at least to change your sample of camera for another one. Maybe other users of Z6 here could test issue and in form of petition, using eoshd as voice of truly independent platform, make some sort of more pressure on Nikon support?

    Lenses

    Good man, I'm starting to pray for you
  6. I understand, in any case, being as parts of panoramic or alchemical seeing, all roads must lead to Canon
  7. But I really take and respect your word for it, as also Andrew's... But maybe problem is that I dare to take word for it ("cinematic" image) also from somebody else? (Or, that somebody feel something fishy or uncomfortably to perpetually read corrective cautions type of "viewing something in normal way" as part of argumentation.) What if, to put it just logically, some other manufacturer's aim is not at all to mimic "cinematic" look of minor player in high end cinema industry, but, say, legendary Alexa? Or we all have to think about Alexa's image also just as little bit more Canon-ish?
  8. Maybe because suddenly on every single topic about hybrid mirrorless cameras somebody (from above perspective) referencing exactly "cinematic" image as exclusively default property from manufacturer that takes minor part in cinema (and cinematic-image defining) industry?

    Reflections about "Roma" cinematography ...

    I think you are totally right... such abundance of details has to be perceived at level of involving spectator as traveling-process of identification. What seems interesting to me, is that it is not appeal to identification through story, or perceptive suspense, even not through moving emotions in strict sense - but through, I'd say, reactivation similarity of constructed images from our own memory, manipulating (and making topic of question) core base of phenomenology of perception, time and sense of "really" being real (through power of using similar sensible perception). I agree also, Ida is very nice... If you maybe haven't seen yet, I'd dare to suggest also Cold war from the same author, it seems to me even better. But, distinction is, IMO, that in both of that movies visual/paint aspect is in the function of accentuating narrative. It seems to me that Roma tries something more ponderous - with success or not. (BW movies about - it's such pity that Bela Tarr doesn't make movies any more... As also that Western public is not so acquainted with works - at least last two - of Aleksey German Sr. Comparing to indeed high level of Cuaron's or Pavlikovsky's movies, just after watching cameraworks ideas of Hrustalev or Hard to be God, I remembered that indeed existed very few whole-art genius also in cinema...)
  10. It depends if they I are shot with Canon - it's first that has to be checked before any answer. Actually, there's no need for answers (as also for samples), just to check if it is/was Canon or not.
  11. IMO because it is above understandable for mortal, uninitiated mind. Obviously you have yet to learn most profound true - cinematic image is just that coming from Canon, and although it may have some subsidiary following attributes as "fat" or "natural", all of that is actually misguiding attempt to express something inexpressible that belongs only to especially gifted perception. Personally, after struggling to understand and carefully reading perpetual states - in almost every thread - frome most passionate gurus of that question, I have found logical peace in such formulation: where the specs stops begin cinematic image, exclusive companion of uber-specs Canon.

    Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    I'm not sure if this test between two Prores HQ results was posted before. If yes, sorry for repeating, if no, to someone may be useful, it seems simple and balanced, there's also link to the written notes from the tester. www.tide.film/blackmagic-pocket-cinema-camera-4k-first-impressions-and-comparison-against-the-panasonic-gh5s/
  13. My advice for few minutes watching is to completely turn down sound and just look at Tony's hand and dancing fingers. He sometimes does very interesting pantomime movements, sometimes even like an conductor. Combine it with innocent sugar-like mouth mimic, and you get pretty quality, live lesson "how to be suggestive speaker".
  14. I think that it is wrong direction of thinking to compare Tony N's one person's youtube exhibition and eoshd concept of existence. Two totally different approaches that at any means can't be comparable in term of quality - that means reality - of influence. Here we have hundreds of personalities becoming from the whole spectre of competency, background and usage, endless devoted testing and retesting, thousands contributions from different angles and points of view - and in the other side is just one man and one woman with all of their simply human prejudices, assumptions and often contradictory daily opinions, obviously urged to pump new reviews every week as important material resource. Here we have very live pattern of society, and there just classical self promoting show. Tony is better half of its presentation just showman who - as all showmen - actually lives on giving people opportunity to kill boring time. So, any dispute with Tony N. about camera is wrong as premise. That's because his ultimative goal is not at all objective review, but publicity. Nothing especially wrong with it in world founded on fakery - he just tries to swim in it as notorious and less or more skillful conformist. Saying that - it maybe good idea to see again Bertolucci's The Conformist

    Black Magic Pocket OG 2019

    As with most of my great (to the raw roots) and unhappy interrupted loves - it is best for me to pretend that we never met, but I know very well that big parts of me are still there...

    Black Magic Pocket OG 2019

    I can't say anything new and original that isn't already at massive quantity all around net Maybe just an idea - if I got again Pocket, I'll try to match it with Laowa 7.5mm lens... each time when I had Pocket that lens didn't exist yet, and seems to me very interesting combo. Pretty capable, greatly keep whole package small and, most important, keep absence of IBIS under control for discrete shooting, being somewhere around FF 21mm, my beloved focal distance.

    GH5 vs XT-3 vs A7III low light

    Simply, I didn't yet see any camera that can make shots of equally/enough high level above (or even including) iso 3200. It's just matter of choice - what sort of compromise/degradation will be applied and estimated as acceptable for given personal task and goal. (Keeping always in mind that the most important factor is size of the screen for projected image.)

    GH5 vs XT-3 vs A7III low light

    And one more for thinking about lowlight solutions

    GH5 vs XT-3 vs A7III low light

    Yeah, I think that most of us have more than enough equipment for encounter with beauty! Maybe just not enough time, contacts, opportunities, will, imagination or something of your famous countryman message: "Stay foolish, stay hungry" (But I bet I'm not the only one here that patiently and eagerly expect born of your Ghost story from majestic camera obscura of your already legendary Canon 5DIII... Actually, meeting so often gladly with your passionate comments here, I'll surely feel and cheer your success partly as my own... Just go on till the end!) (BTW I shoot both with GH5 and GH5s so - keep eye on GHa lut In a meanwhile one more example of unpretentiously balanced, well done work for imo studying and enjoying - GH5s + SLR Magic Anamorph. lens and bit more graininess

    GH5 vs XT-3 vs A7III low light

    More serious samples in natural light (or nice level of its absence) - GH5s and Terra 4k

    GH5 vs XT-3 vs A7III low light

    Actually, I'm used to exclusively shoot with Voigts, so even in the middle of suburban night I am rarely, if ever, above iso 800 (That's the reason for question about rethinking matter of lenses.)

    Maybe to include as variable relevant to question: exploring choice of appropriate lenses?

    Panasonic GH6 rumours

    Thanks, it's so nice to hear voice of modesty, out of endless verbal judging what is future or what is dead. Actually, it seems that inner peace and modesty are the most important talents to make a gems such these - with NX1. (And it is great to see that Black Pencil still use NX1... last post is just one month old one).
