  1. I read this is because the T7 uses a buffer for very fast writes, but also it can get full if used for longer than it was made for. Since cameras are constantly sending a lot of data, that buffer fills up very quickly. I had this happen with a T5 and 6kPro. I think it's when the disk is a certain percentage full, it slows down or something... Or maybe it is the heat. I've used the same drive a lot since then, and haven't been able to recreate the problem, but I've also not filled it up as much as I had on that shoot. I've also never had that problem with a T5 and the FP, although I mostly shoot to Braw with the FP, so it's possible I've simply not tested it enough to find any issues. -- I've not heard of the Sandisk Pro Blade before, but it doesn't look much smaller than the Lacie Rugged disks. I think the DPL option is the most compact way to record externally, but it's also one of the more expensive routes.
  2. Oh yeah, with the actual EVF this wouldn't work at all.. Althought the same idea with a M42 ssd might. There's also this option, which is by far the neatest way to go.
  3. As it happens, I took the velcro off the vf soon after writing that post and have a new roll on the way. But here's a couple photos using an elastic tie (and 28mm fd) so at least you can see the sizing. With the velcro, you can position the cable a little nicer though, as the ssd is more stable and secure.
  4. I got one of those hotshoe phone holders, and put a T5 drive in it. But my favourite solution is velcro on the top of the LVF11, and on the T5. With a bit of cable management, you barely notice it's there. This setup with a 35mm 2.8 Canon FD lens is a lot of fun to shoot with. Add a pistol grip for even more points.
  5. Christ. WeChat sounds absoultely terrifying.
  6. Aftern hearing about this company in another topic after a few years, they've released some software to help people shooting cDNG. I've not yet tested it, but it looks pretty good. Essentially it's just playback and light raw controls for now, but their roadmap suggests they're working on exporting to ProRes, which will be great for cameras like the Sigma FP, that only record uncompressed. https://www.octopuscinema.com/wiki/index.php?title=OCTOPUS_RAW_Player#Installer
  7. https://www.instagram.com/p/Cj7LnVcvNLy/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= Braw will be supported and I would have thought from launch, in Q4...
  8. Blackmagic CEO has previously said Resolve will never be subscription software. At around 3.10ish https://youtu.be/8TPBswDve3o
  9. The biggest draw for me, is the possibilty of Braw playback on the iPad.
  10. Some kind of Sony with a G lens.
  11. Depending on the bag, I mostly leave it attached, but try to make sure it won't ever lean or take weight on the HDMI clamp. For the day I mentioned in that post, the setup was lens down in a satchel style bag, so all the weigh was on the lens. as you can see in the second picture thuogh, the cable doesn't come out past the edge of the clamp, so if it was to rest on it's side, I don't think it would cause any damage.
  12. Does anyone know of a way to have AF for stills, but MF for video - without having to tell the camera what to do each time you flick the switch? I've gone through the menu, and changed the Focus settings for video to complete MF, and even enabling tried AF + MF, but everytime I go to Stills and enable AF, it also enables AF for Cine mode. I really hope there's a way to keep them seperate.
  13. Does anyone know of a pistol grip with working start / stop for the FP? I feel like it'd be a great camera to use that way, with the LVF-11.
  14. Can you turn down the post stabilisation? Maybe that's a good way to find a middle ground between blurry shutter and shakey footage.
  15. interesting! Do you have a link to the booster? All I can find is the adapter without glass. I remember Mattias Burping adapted soms medium format lenses to a Sony a7 a few years ago. He seemed happy with the results.
  16. Price drop has also happened at local stores near me. I wonder if it's a stock clearance for the next model? I wish they also did it for the Shinobi though!
  17. Resolve 18 Beta 5 was released today, this includes the necessary updates to use the newly accessible gyro data. Looking forward to testing it out myself over the weekend.
  18. Hidden among the news of an unneeded camera update (BMPCC6k G2) was the fact that the Pocket cameras now record the gyro data for stabilisation in an upcoming REsolve update. This is very exciting! Grant mentions it around 1 minute into this video.
  19. There's also a new update for all 4 pocket cameras. https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support/readme/e92467316d644536806f8829b129178a --- What's new in Blackmagic Camera 7.9 Added Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K G2 support. The following models have new features. Pocket Cinema Camera 4K, 6K and 6K Pro Added new updated user interface. Added support for focus assist intensity adjustments via sliders. Added support for custom presets and LUTs to be retained after software updates from this release onwards. Improved lens and auto focus performance. Pocket Cinema Camera 6K, 6K G2 and 6K Pro Added support for Blackmagic Design Zoom and Focus demands.
  20. I'll take about 5 without even thinking.
  21. It's basically a Pro, also with 2 XLRs, the only difference I can see is ND filters. So I guess if you prefer variable, or Matte Box NDs the Pro is unnecessary... but that said, you can still use variable and Matte Box on the Pro. It's a very confusing release. They'd sell a lot more by putting this camera's internals in a box shape, and calling that the 6k G2... but I guess that will cost them more in redesigning the body. It seems like a very strange release, and maybe that's why they did it so quietly. No video announcement, just a social media post.
  22. Blackmagic have just updated their Video Assist to record Braw from the Leica SL2-S - anyone here able to test it? I'm very curious. Update page: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support/readme/5939d7b7a4ab432598476c0bbefc8116
  23. 'Don't use color wheel adjustments(Lift, Gamma, Gain and Offset) - so curves only? or it's ok to use the LOG wheels - seems like a weird thing to rule out.
  24. @kye I just checked, with a VA I can record Braw 1080p 119.88fps. In Resolve, a clip I shot at UHD 25p is said to be 16bit... but I don't think that's right. This file is straight out of the Video Assist, recorded in Braw Q5. In an app called SCOOP! - which tells you metadata, it says the bitrate is Variable. I'm not sure exactly what the numbers are, but in real life, I love Braw out of the Sigma. It's my go-to camera at the moment. EDIT: Interestingly, a clip from my P4k also says 16bit in Resolve...
