  1. XT4 Punches above its weight with noise control in low light (x-trans noise is always nicer) Not full frame but focal reducers are there (and excellent Fringer non-reducer adapters) Only thing is that the IBIS behaves slightly differently on different fuji lenses. Some it's slightly jerky, some it's great. Manual lenses you can kind of tune it yourself by inputting a different focal lenght setting Much more useable AF (okay, depends...) Having full bit depth h.265 and good bitrates in all resolutions and framerates and all capture modes felt amazing after GH5 which had a lot of gotchas in certain modes like VFR only being 8 bit Size and looks beat the gh5 too though I can't say 'ergos' are superior necessarily for practical use
  2. if they had only put that fantastic (& tilting) EVF from the GX8 into the GX9, or even just put better IBIS in the GX8, it would have been beating out other Pana rangefinders as an allrounder for years
  3. DJI Pocket 2 has a slightly generous sensor size for the category comapred to Pcket 1 and other action cams etc too.
  4. Disappointed overall at how the trailer came off. But maybe there will indeed be some clever, impactful plot to enjoy. ALSO please tell me someone else noticed that the ENTIRE first 20 seconds (and not just the brief shot of exterior of some house) are in CG not filmed for real? That whole section with Neil Patrick Harris - look at the (lack of) realism of certain parts of his skin, his clothes, the extra saturation in the colours too. Lacking the subtlely of color in real shots or something. Keanu's hair (closest to forehead), the macro-like shot where his fingers anxiously twitch against some fabric, plus the very clearly post-production 'candid' camera shake effect on that part doesn't help either. Why make a scene like that purely in CG? plot significance.
  5. I know the exact vibe you mean. It's rampant in highly sentimental low to medium budget pieces with docu- type (but still an artistic piece) video portraits of human subjects. I can already see the examples I recall in my head, a person standing there (not speaking) in their house or other environment of theirs, with their "sleeves rolled up", the camera gently swaying. All very "candid" and ~authentic~. There's a strange sense of 'canned vulnerability' about it at this point, but I suppose there's a reason for everything, its only guilty of being a bit overused really. Often shot at 60fps and conformed to 24/25p for a subtle slowmo look but not full blown overcooked slowmo. Wouldn't discount certain (other) types of contrived camera sway being added in post, btw. Seen plenty of examples where it was obvious
  6. My only complaint about this was that you actually dropped the bit at the end. Please do more like this! The music & sound was perfect as well, jesus christ I swear I've heard that exact stuff in 50 videos
  7. Are the DOF and the compression not tied together quite a bit though? I'm suddenly not understanding, what you've said here
  8. sorry, old quote here - you mean the GX85 color profiles hack or some other one? That hack was what first brought me to this forum haha. I have to thank you. Did I see right you guys are also based in Ireland?? This device looks fantastic btw. Excited for the Oct 26th thing you mentioned also...
  9. Okay, I do see they've maybe highlighted a use case for hands-free focus (aka autofocus) with that bit in the promo video where it's like mounted to the outside of a car or whatever and tracking another car passing by. Pretty professional high-production-value looking use case to me though where you'd maybe just be able to run with a wireless focus puller solution instead
  10. Have only skimmed the thread and the details on this gimbal so far but, my main question: If you're already all rigged up holding a gimbal in your hand and with a gear motor attached to your lens: Why would you not just use a wheel on the gimbal to manually pull focus? Remember the whole point is you're almost certainly already holding it all in your hand. Follow focus add-on motors on the last gen (Ronin S/SC, Weebill S, Moza Aircross 2) all offer totally usable follow focus already. Why even invite the uncertainty of an autofocus system... These gimbals look awesome though and I'm definitely feeling a hint of remorse at having recently bought a Ronin SC that I never even got to take out of the box yet 😅
  11. I think an even closer analogy than SRT subs is just how different cameras RAW photos, slightly different though each manufacturer's type of file may be, can all be opened in an editor app and uniform corrective edits (the usual stuff baked into a JPEG like where to reduce Chromatic Aberration etc) applied based on profiles known from each camera model
  12. Yeah when I started to understand how the SteadXP achieved it, I started wishing the actual cameras would make it possible without the middleman by recording the data. But they won't see much of a viable demographic in people who are willing to go off doing that "extra" step. (Not really extra at all in my view of course since I know I'm forever at the mercy of whether my footage needs NLE-based stabilisation in post) Each brand's more professional cameras will be aimed at people for whom this is redundant because they simply shoot with professional level solutions i.e. fixed shooting on tripods, shooting on steady-rigs, all the way down to even just people using gimbals maybe. Each brand's more amateur/casual demographic will be seen as people who never want the inconvenience of going off to NLE tinkering with this data and just want a no-fuss decent IBIS/digital stab baked in

    Fuji X-S10

    yeah I'm just here looking at the fact that is has the XT4 sensor and wondering "ok, how long til they could give h.265 in a later firmware? otherwise nah" 4k60 I don't need, if I have a strong 1080p60/96/120 etc Lack of any time limit in 4k24/25p (8-bit I suppose...) I would love. Almost a great b-cam to the XT4 if it had it. Really cool little 1080p240 + IBIS rangefinder though that I'd be all over if it was slightly cheaper and I didn't already have an XT4
  14. Off topic from the thread but since you mentioned it, how do you find the S5 IBIS? Compared to say gold-standard-y current gen Olympus bodies or GH5 performance?
  15. Hmm. Fair enough. I have my gripes with the Fuji XT menu system (and to this day still don't know if I can truly even set up a Custom C1 C2 etc) but the physical ergos and form factor I really love. That's coming from using GH5 too, but if I was literally *only* doing professional work (i.e never day-to-day carry or travel/personal use + stills) then maybe I'd prefer the bigger GH5 grip etc. But other than that I really love the rangefinder form. GH5 -> GX9 -> XH1 -> XT4 was basically my route here. I haven't felt like I'm missing out on anything at all in terms of video codecs (I don't go near anamorphic) and image quality since going XT4 after my GH5+GX9
