    Black Magic Pocket OG 2019

    I've heard of people losing the ability to use external monitoring through electrical damage too, from using questionable power solutions. (source needed) My bmpcc that I got rid of last summer (oh boy do I regret it), I bought second hand and while it did not have any obvious physical damage to the hdmi-port, I could never get hdmi signal from it.
  2. @Brian Williams I very rarely get stretched preview, and when I do it's (seemingly) when the module doesn't load properly. If I reboot the camera/ML and reload the module it usually fixes it. The off-center liveview seems more like a constant problem.
  3. @Emanuel My experience coincide with what @Alpicat has mentioned above, with an addition to me having had similar problems with the crop mode as well, albeit perhaps in an older version of ML. The problem of a stretched preview is easy to notice and all you have to do at that point is to reboot the camera and hope for it to be properly initialized. The crop and decentering can be harder to notice, but what you can do is to frame up your shots in regular video mode, before enabling ML - a method that works to combat decentering, but is a lot trickier regarding crop.
  4. Sorry, no clue. And I would like to know too.
  5. @mercer That's with the eos-m. I've been thinking about getting a 5D3 though, but have yet to find a decent enough deal over here.
  6. In my experience, I lose about 1/3rd of the top of the image which I instead gain in the bottom of the frame. Meaning; what I perceived to be the center of the image in the live view is in actuality 1/3rd lower. If that makes sense.

    Any alternatives to a G80/85?

    Congrats! I've owned this camera twice now and never got along with it, I am however about to try it out again... Across the pond here in Sweden they go for about 450-500 USD new, body only.

    Color science

    The trick-question brand bias thing was interesting to say the least, but it would be outrageous to call his "study" scientific.

    Intersting survey about bokeh

    Yeah, in terms of cinema, DoF have so many uses and not just because it "looks sweet". Similar to your example, shallow depth of field is a easy trick to make something look more "expensive". i.e no need for set design or mis-en-scène. This also, in my opinion tends to work against itself. When overused in narrative work, it can get so obvious that it looks cheap instead. It also greatly impacts realism in an image. Nothing is more impressive than when a technique is used for a specific audience reaction, and it works. But sure, it tends to look pretty too. Sorry for OT, interesting video.
  10. @Alt Shoo Luckily you can read all about it here. It's been posted in some em5ii discussions before.
  11. Does this have clean hdmi out? The e-m5 II was pretty impressive through the BM VA 🤔

    @mercer thank you sir! oh sorry, I forgot to mention that. It's the bmpcc. Yeah I was told the f/4 was the same way. I even realised that the whole barrel spins when focusing :/

    We are currently shooting a piece for my city's marketing company. It's all about inclusion and social diversity. This shot is from a boxing training session for people with Parkinson's disease. A very humbling experience. Shot with the Canon FDn 35-70 f/3.5-4.5 and a chinese focal reducer. I recently bought it for under 20$, while searching for the one with a constant f/4 aperture. The only gripe I have with it is that the front element and the filter threads retracts into the front barrel, and I do not have a 52mm ND-filter
  14. Yes. Do it, try it out. If you don't like it, you can resell it without losing any money. You might realize that Canon full frame is THE thing for you, and you might want to pick up the Mark III later on. OR perhaps you find out you don't like it at all, at least you tried it out. Im actually thinking of getting one myself.
