  1. Yes. Also, if you're worried about it, just take your 70-200 2.8 out of your bag and carry it separately so that even if someone asks to weight it then it'll be a lot lighter than normal. I find it a strange situation that they can weigh your bag, but can't weigh you. I have had extra luggage weight anxiety and I purchased a sleeveless vest with a huge pocket in the front in case I wanted to reduce carry-on weight, and it has a nice hood too so can act like a scarf or hood if I was cold or wanted to sleep on the plane. My carry-on is actually underweight normally, but it's nice to know that if I have problems I can take my bags away to "re-pack" and basically just pocket heavy things then get through check-in and unload my pockets again.

    Panasonic GH6 rumours

    Yes, an eND like the FS5.. A GH5S with IBIS and eND would be pretty nice, but I don't think that's enough to keep it at the same level as the GH5 has proven to be. Dual ISO would be pretty sweet though! Just buy second-hand?
  3. So, in-line with whats winning right now, how about a challenge where we: play for fun and glory can only spend $50 for a camera body can only use the Helios 58mm F2 Russian lens (but speed boosters are allowed) there would be a general theme equipment is secret until the judging is over the schedule would be: a time period where people can order their equipment and have it shipped then we announce the theme and everyone has something like a week or two to make their film then judging like last time then we reveal equipment and shooting tips etc. I'm up for that

    If DR15 could do it then DR16 should be able to. Hopefully someone on the BMD forums will help

    Are you racing for a deadline? I'm wondering if it's a CPU bottleneck where two cores are being used at maximum and the others aren't being used much at all, but who knows and that doesn't really help you. If you're racing for a deadline then I'd say bite the bullet and render Optimised Media for the Multicam clips you need and get it done, then troubleshoot later. It's very strange why this would be happening though, v16 is fully released software so shouldn't be worse than the previous version.

    I saved the function that re-saves the custom config to the user shortcuts menu just for that purpose! But yes, I take your point

    It's complicated, absolutely, but that's why there are the custom modes. The P4K let's you change settings really easily, but to me you wouldn't need to change those settings that often, except if you were changing shooting scenarios, which is where the C modes on the GH5 come into play. I have C1 set to normal 5K shooting (5K 4:3 25p), C2 set for normal 4K shooting (4K 16:9 25p), and C3 as the slow motion modes, with C3-1 as 4K50, and C3-2 as 1080 120fps. I have the buttons and dials setup how I want them and so just shoot, only having to pay attention to focus and exposure, which are mapped to the same controls on all profiles. I literally just set the dial to which lens choice I want, turn on the camera, set the mode dial to the shooting mode I want, and then shoot. To go from shooting 24p to shooting 120fps on the P4K would require changing the resolution, frame rate and shutter, but is one click of a dial on the GH5 if you've set it up already. It's funny you say that you're always wondering if you got everything right, but I use the C modes because I know that I won't get everything right in the moment but programmed it well so I don't have to worry

    If you're a Mac user, there's a tool called Activity Monitor and in it you want to enable the CPU History and GPU History from the Windows menu. That will bring up graphs that show how much each of them is doing. Then you try and use Resolve and see what the graphs are doing. Typically you'll either see the CPU graphs (one graph per core) all at maximum while the video card isn't maxed out, or it will be the other way around. On PC I'm not sure what the tool is, but I think Windows will have something equivalent? Maybe someone else with a PC can help out here.. However, all of this is to work out what the bottleneck is, which will just tell you what hardware you have to upgrade. Back in Resolve, try reducing the timeline resolution, engaging Playback -> Proxy Mode, or disabling any colour grading you have done. To test if it's your disk drive (and assuming you're not editing off an SSD already) try copying the clips to an SSD and editing them. With multi-cam you're asking the computer to read and process multiple video clips at once, so if you have high-bitrate low-resolution clips (eg, 1080p clips) then reading the files off the HDD might be the bottleneck.

    No ideas, but have you looked at your CPU/GPU/HDD usage and seen where the bottlenecks are? I can't find it, but I swear I read somewhere that DR16 moved a lot of processing from CPU to GPU so maybe that's what's causing your issues?
  11. Just an idea, and not sure if it will work, but aren't there media players that will let you install a LUT? Like, if you put the free false-colour LUT into VLC and looked at it that way?

    Panasonic GH6 rumours

    Now the P6K is with us, I think this changes the landscape a bit for the hotly anticipated cameras like GH6, A7Siii, etc. From my own perspective, I think the following improvements over a GH5 would be 'enough' to sell a bunch of them: Built-in ND that can be controlled by auto-exposure Being able to set the camera to a set aperture, a set shutter speed, and then having auto-ISO and auto-ND control the exposure for me would be spectacular. Higher bitrates / resolutions This would be some combination of: RAW 4K, 6K 16:9, and "8K-like" 4:3 anamorphic mode. Mix-and-match codecs and bitrates and framerates Being able to choose from any combination of bitrate (eg. 100/150/200/300/400/600/800Mbps), and codec (H264/H265), and frame rate (1/2/4/7/10/23.976/24/25/30/50/60/HFR) that the hardware is capable of would be great. Low framerates are great for time lapses or special effects too. Better stabilisation Not sure if better IBIS is possible, but adding a GoPro/OsmoPocket type EIS on top of IBIS would allow great SOOC clips in difficult situations. For bonus points, having a removable mount so you can either have MFT and use adapters, or go EF or Nikon if you wanted to (and maybe a S35 sensor with the smarts to know what lens is attached and adapt appropriately). Better low-light / dual-ISOs wouldn't go astray either. The GH5 is a workhorse, so keeping the ergonomics and practicality / reliability but adding an ND, bumping up the image, and making it more customisable would be spectacular. I am a very happy GH5 user, and when I look at the P4K I think "No thanks, I don't want the huge data rates of RAW, but I do need IBIS", and when I look at the P6K I think "No thanks, I almost have 6K, but I do need IBIS". The GH5 was released in early-2017 and is still winning against late-2019 cameras. Assuming that the GH6 is released early-2020 and needs to still be winning against late-2022 cameras, it will need these things, although they're not out of reach technically, it just needs a company willing to put them all into a camera, and Panasonic has a track record of that.

    Absolutely! Couldn't agree more.. 😎😎😎

    FILMMAKING 101 by Kaylee

    I agree. I'm curious to hear how you interpret that phrase. One thing I read (that was talking about that phrase) was that at the time most lenses were sharpest at F8, and combined with the typical shooting situation (combinations of what people might shoot, which focal length they would choose to shoot it, and how far away they are likely to be) that F8 was also a practical compromise between having a deep DoF to not have focus issues but was also a combination of daylight and a large enough aperture to not have to have a really long shutter speed with ASA100, 200 (or maybe 400) film in the camera. In that sense I thought the phrase was quite practical for people who wouldn't understand the various tradeoffs that are at play. Obviously there are all kinds of nuances for the experienced photographer to explore but as soon as auto-exposure was widely available I thought the average person could turn on auto-SS, set to F8, and then they'd have pretty good results treating their SLR like a point-and-shoot camera but with MF?
  15. I guess that depends on what primes you have - it's definitely not a replacement for the f0.95 (or faster) primes available. It's the FF equivalent of a 20-50mm F3.4 lens. Will it be a flexible length? Absolutely. Will it be a workhorse? Probably. Will it be a "prime killer"? Definitely not.
