  1. Hi all, My heart goes out to everyone whose livelihood depends on this technology, tough, nay, difficult and challenging times, indeed. Being "just a retired fellow who likes to play with cool toys and try and make something with them" my biggest hit during the pandemic was having to sandbag my night college FCPX class this past spring when in-class learning turned into an attempt at virtual learning...I imagine I took an incomplete on it, haven't had the heart to check. (sigh) I would very much like to retake the course when the campus reopens and I feel that the pandemic is on the wane
  2. I remain bullish on Panasonic's camera offerings moving forward despite industry delays due to the pandemic. Their investment and commitment to organic sensor technology (hoping we'll soon see its performance abilities during this year's Olympics in Japan) and their public statement that this sensor technology will find its way into the GH line and consumer lines after that event speaks to me of exciting times ahead. (I do not expect the previously mentioned Sony sensor to find its way into a GH6, but rather, find use in a new superzoom and single-FL M43 camera to replace the FZ- and TZ-lines.
  3. Based on the link below, I'm thinking that the conversion from FCP7>FCPX is not a necessary step, seems that the FCP7 XML file should import into PPro with a few caveats (mentioned in link)... FCP 7: Move Projects to Premiere Pro | Larry Jordan: https://larryjordan.com/articles/fcp-7-move-projects-to-premiere-pro/ ...read the comments if moving to PPro CC. Curious how big your FCP7 project is, and where you're located? (i.e. how do you envision providing someone with the project and all of the media files to make this happen?) Also, NSFW or SFW? (Need I mention why?!) :)
  4. Wednesday, April 8th Update: Bingo! Firmware v. 1.5 is here with... << Expanded media compatibility - Prograde Digital CFexpress Type B card can be used. * Learn more https://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/connect/cfe/ Other added functions - 50p/25p video frame rate option is available on all LUMIX S1 cameras including models for the NTSC broadcast format regions (Japan, North America, Republic of Korea, Taiwan, Republic of the Philippines).

    Fuji X-T4

    Not sure what's going on with the IBIS in this video, but I had to stop watching after a couple of minutes because the frame edge wobbling was giving me a headache (from Levi Allen using a "loaner model")... Fuji Xt-4: Am I finally Switching Camera Systems? (Q&A) - YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzKiT9fHaQw ...and based on the comments there, I'm not alone, oofah.
  6. Hi Ki Rin, I bookmarked the following 2 links some time back when shopping the Panasonic platform as a "next choice" (after trying to work on the Sony Alpha platform and being generally disappointed with settling for 8-bit image data). Caveat: Now, I haven't tried any of the following procedures as I've yet to dip my toes into HLG but, again, I bookmarked this information to reference to when that time comes for me. First up is Jeff Worley, of CRFTSHO, generously performing a hands-on tutorial for setting up for HLG in DaVinci Resolve 12.5 (a bit dated, I know, but hopefu
  7. Hi all, Still waiting to see what my college is going to do with our lab-intensive FCPX class (I could do my assignments from home but I fear that the majority of my fellow students need to do their homework on campus). In the meantime, just acquired a colorimeter and will be working on finally getting my monitors properly calibrated. Also looking to do color-correction testing on my cameras using the X-Rite Video ColorChecker that came with the kit. Continuing pre-assignment work on my student project and preparing my shotlist along with a variety of scripting ideas (choices) I've worked
  8. Looks like the ghosting artifacts (temporal noise reduction) that plagued the S1 (and were fixed in firmware) are still plaguing the S1H (posted yesterday by Gerald Undone)... Panasonic S1 vs S1H: Cheaper Is Better?! - YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDjLHiiatUA ...feeling glad I didn't upgrade from my S1's quite yet.
  9. Look to your left for more specific details. :)
  10. Thanks! I was knee-deep in my above post when you posted that, thanks for the heads up! :)
  11. Hi parthshah, and welcome to the forums! When it comes to "first gear choices" (or "any gear choices" for that matter! ha!) best (IMO) to try and identify what one is trying to accomplish that isn't being served with their current gear and then examine which solutions best solve the most problems... Case 1: I needed a lightweight camera that would fit in a shoulder sling bag along with binoculars and other day hike items that could shoot from wide to tele...so I shopped superzoom cameras and grabbed a used FZ1000 when one popped up. Case 2: Wanted to shoot birds and wildlife in
  12. Comparing Closed Cases is an even-worse examination of the data points (provided at the same link), if one scrolls down that page one will see that the Active Cases # tally has been omitted from your posted image (from the same page) tallies/computations. However, there is one instance on that list that will qualify as a closed case study when all is said and done, Diamond Princess... ...696 Total cases with 7 deaths, 325 Recovered, 364 Active, 32 Serious/Critical (as of this posted image above). Worst-case scenario that all of the 32 Serious Cases turn fatal woul
  13. Using your link's above posted data of 4749 รท 129,604 yields a mortality rate of ~3.66%, slightly updated numbers but yielding the same statistical result. Again, both results based on global under-sampling. Your link's Mortality Rate link... Coronavirus Mortality Rate (COVID-19) - Worldometer: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/coronavirus-death-rate/ ...routes to a report from March 3rd with the WHO reporting a mortality rate of 3.4%. Edit: Just to follow up on that WHO report, from Reuters' today regarding how to better understand such under-sampling and the
  14. Percentages based on under-testing (under-sampling) will lead to seemingly-higher and woefully-inaccurate death rates.

  15. Based on the numbers being provided at this link... European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control: COVID-19: https://qap.ecdc.europa.eu/public/extensions/COVID-19/COVID-19.html ...as of this post writing: 89,068 Reported Cases, 3,046 Reported Deaths, simple math reveals yields a mortality rate of 3.4%. Considering that diagnostic testing for this virus is limited globally, both the Reported Cases and, thus, knowable Reportable Deaths resulting from the virus are currently unknowable and therefore being way under-reported.
