  1. I think i am gonna use gyro stab to some degree but not 100% cos I like the handheld look, just to smooth it out. On some other particular shots I might use it more extensivly. I would also try using a gimbal with a gyro to get it as smooth as possible as I hate that robotic walking gimbal look. Or I would just use my air2s for those perfect floating camera shots. Dunno, need more experimetns. The softwae is just getting developed (I use with gyroflow for now, but I hope either Blackmagic will add support for Sony or the former will produce their promiced plugin so the workflow becomes more intuitive and simple). If I had to choose which one to get - stable footage or motion blur, I would choose stable footage, if that what I need. Some times you must have a motion blur. Just prioritize what you need.
  2. I am gonna come out and confess to everyone.. I shoot everything with a XAVC-HS (which is basicly H265) in 4k24fps at 50mbps on my A7S3. Add 10 bit 422 as well. Yeah, I sad it 🤭 I dont feel like my image is breaking apart or anything and I like that my files are small and compact and my ssds dont bloat as they used to be. Now recently as I noticed that ssd & uhs cards pprices have started coming down, I begin to wounder if I should maybe jump to at least 100 mbps? What do you guys think? I dont shoot for Netflix or any fancy productions and just publish on youtube. Do I really need to bother with at least doubling my bitrate?
  3. If they would work with other cameras with gyro like the latest Sony cameras, that would be even better. I am tired of waiting for gyroflow Resolve plugin.
  4. I frankly wish that Nikon would make a dedicated video camera a-la Sony fx3, but with Nikon ergonomics, a big bright screen, gyro stab, etc. Not going to dream about a build-in ND but if Nikon engeneers would manage to fit it in a Z7 sized body, this camera would disrupt the market for sure.
  5. With a new Megadap Nikon Z to Sony e-mount adapter I am actually looking at Nikon cameras in a new light now. If they prodcue a more compact and cheap version of their flagship Z9, or just migrate some of its features to a refreshed versions of Z6 and Z7 I might just get one. Two ecosystems in one! Only the batteries would be different.
  6. Big sensors are expensive. It would be waisting a lot of valuable transistor budget on something not many ppl need. It would drive the end product price up even more. Its much easier to do on smaller sensors like action cams, 360 cams, etc..
  7. Nope. Their camera is huge and has space for a mechanical 6 stop nd that cycles through those stops switching small filters.
  8. I am just woundering are Sony actually interested in producing some high quality apcs cameras anymore? Or they are protecting their A7 lineup? Cos it seems to me, that A6xxx lineup surves sort of as an entry/beginner/vlogging camera purpose atm. I would love to see some cutting edge redisigned completly new a7xxx cameras from Sony. Doing 8k video, 4K120, 10 bit and all that fun stuff.
  9. Our insider sensor guru has arrived 😁 Well at least its some newest sensor tech. A1 is pretty dope.
  10. Yes, a tech for small e-vnd for mirroless is not there yet. I assume it should be some sort of on-sensor tech. Or a very thin minituarized version of current e-vnd.

    Fuji XH-2/S

    So specs are pretty hot atm: XH-2: 40mp New Samsung isocell sensor / Stacked BSI sensor design Possible 8k60, 6k120 ofc 10 bit 422 etc Imrpoved IBIS and AF Price under 2500$ This all sounds just too good imo. Just add to this a nice screen and build-in nd and I'll have to switch from my beloved Sony A7s3 🤷 Camera introduction - end of May
  12. My first drone was Parrot Anafi - dont reccomend it to anyone. Now I have Air 2S and its very good. Geofencing could be avoided with some hacks and i basicly like it in all aspects, great drone pretty nice 5.3k video quality. But I am definitely gonna try a cinewhoop next.
  13. Went with A7siii I would serioslly consider GH6 if it would arrive at least a year and a half earlier. It took them too long.

    Panasonic GH6

    So aside from failed AF (as expected) its a really nice cinema camera and in my opinion the price is justified for the specs it provides - 4k120, 6k60, DR boost, best in class IBIS, internal Prores.

    Panasonic GH6

    ok, I change my mind, this review is da best 😁

    Panasonic GH6

    the best review so far the IBIS looks just on another level compared to everyone else Wanna see more tests of it, with Dual IS2 or e-stab combined, etc..

    Panasonic GH6

    So after wathcing like 4 or 5 youtube reviews I can say that this is a very good video camera for hand held video shooting where you don't need AF. No gimbal. But.. you probably don't need one cos IBIS is so good. I am actually not a fun of gimbals and if I didn't swtich to Sony A7S3 and sold all my MFT gear I would be interested in this camera for sure. This camera plus SB and Sigma 18-35 is still a very sweet package for hand-held video shooting. I wounder if they have an ability to record gyro data like Sony cameras to use it later with something like GyroFlow and if it will work in conjunction with its IBIS unlike Sony, please Andrew test it. Wanna see more IBIS tests.

    Olympus OM-1

    I kept thinking what could a great MFT product and I got an idea that I think has some potential: What if.. DJI would make a much more compact a stripped-down version of their Ronin 4D in MFT format? Like a middle-ground between their tiny Osmo and huge and expensive 4D. They already done it actually with their Zenmuse drone gimbal. Now just update it with Ronin 4D tech, make it as compact as possible and that would be a very intresting product. Now DJI is a company that could surpise everyone.

    I could imagine MFT holding its ground (for video makers), if they would implement some key innovations, like: - build-in nd - some sort of super IBIS that combines their awesome mechanical stab with digital and creates a gimbal-like stabilization - big bright 5 inch display, so you don't need to fiddle with an external monitor - DJI like focusing system But that is just my imagination 😁 nobody gonna implement that. P. S. And I personally am OK with FF-like size, if they would do something like that

    Sadly I must agree that MFT is dying. It would probably still exist in some sort of form for much longer beeing an open system I would imagine some manufactureses still produce MFT gear once in a while, but if OM and Pana fail to make any siginificant money out of those cameras they WILL shut down their MFT camera divisions. This is just a reality.

    Seems like a good incrimental upgrade but not a revolutionary one. AF is DFD again.. phfff. I am glad I've swtiched to Sony afterall. I love Panasonic cameras and hope they survive a forever shrinking market. At least with one of their systems.

    Olympus OM-1

    Thats not a valid argument anymore. Those "3rd party lenses" as you call them are all premium quiality. Even new Samyangs are and Tamrons or Sigma lenses can compete with first party lenses from Sony in a heartbeat. I am glad that used m43 gear is becoming more accesible cos frankly I always though of it as overpriced.

    Olympus OM-1

    Ok, let's do a fact check on this one. MFT vs FF. 1. Olympus 12-100 f4 - 1300$ 1. Tamron 28-200 f2.8-5.6 - 729$. Same weight.. but in terms of m43 it has f1.2-2.8 aperture! And its almost half the fricking price! Nice macro capabilities as well. 2. Olympus 7-14mm f/2.8 - 1300$ (534 gramm) 2. Tamron 17-28 f.28 - 900$ (420 gramm). Yes, the range is a bit smaller, but f1.2 in MFT terms plus its even lighter. So in no way MFT lenses are cheaper or smaller, lets forget that crap already. Add Samyang tiny 1.8 primes for Sony E and you are set. So if you pick up a Sony A7IV and those two zooms, you will end up with quite a cheaper set. Olumpus: 2200 body + 2600 for those 2 zooms = 4800$ total Sony: 2500 body + 1600 for 2 zooms = 4100$ total Now, it doesnt mean that FF is better in all occasions, all depends on your use case. Just dont see any price\size advantage over it from MFT.
  24. Now if someone could hack Sony firmware and make sort of a Magit Lantern.. that would unlock very interesting possibilities, including 48mp still on A7S3 Binning design would actually explain why A74 has better lowlight than A7S3
