    I think putting out a bunch of landmine signs would be the most effective strategy

    I know a rich guy that has an old canon. He lights it off up the canyon once a year using a bowling ball

    Canon EOS R - The Sum Is Larger Than Its Parts

    Well, the competition has been behind the 4k 60 in the 1DX ii for 3 years & counting 🤣

    Canon EOS R - The Sum Is Larger Than Its Parts

    Canon was caught having unacceptable DR, then they fixed it in the 5d iv. Since they have publicly stated they are aware that they have to make their 4k better, I bet they will get it within 10% of the competition this year. They usually follow Nikon & vise versa. I guarantee if their spies hadn't told them nikon was releasing a mirrorless, they wouldnt have put out the eos r, which clearly wasnt ready yet.

    No, it has too high of velocity relative to the rounds size. Unless you get fragmenting bullets, it's basically a over sized .22. Plus, the military & police use that ammo, so it becomes too hard to find and expensive. It's best to play army on call of duty & just buy a shotgun/pistol combo if you are a real American. Maybe a hunting rifle if you have freezer space to put a bunch of elk/deer/buffalo meat in. Bag one of those & you dont have to buy meat at the store for over a year, many times more.

    What LUT For 8-bit CLOG > 709?

    That screen was at the base log ISO of 400. I tried over exposing to the point where my highlights clipped, there was still a ton of bg noise. I think I mentioned it, but I did manually grade and still had the same issue. I just never remember having this issue on the c200 I used. Obviously there is a massive price difference, I just don't think I can achieve the look I wanted (little drama) with this camera. I hate using neat video, it can take forever sometimes, so that's not an option for quick turnaround. Then the color banding, which is easy to see in motion and at full resolution in PP, makes this frustrating. Everytime I just talk myself into finding a purpose for this camera, ignoring the downfalls, it finds a new way to irritate me. I posted a detailed thing in one of the eos r threads of other issues; freezing, banding, soft 60p etc. I am just going to send this one back and pray that canon does it right on their pro body. I will just plan ahead better and rent for now when I need a second or third angle.

    EOSHD Opinion - The Sony A6400 is an absolute turkey

    Interesting to see Canon got their 4k RS in the 1D bodies down to 14.7ms (24/60fps), from 25ms on the 1DC. That would be cool if they get to single digits in the next one that should release within a year. I think the 5D iv & Eos R have around 40? lol, I still think the worst one I have experienced was the a6500.

    Ah, it all makes sense now. Once again the joke of a mod "Mako2011" removed my posts, because I said: "Canon knows about this issue, I reported it in October and there have been other threads on it" on a thread showcasing the issue (until it's deleted). Now I know why these threads keep getting deleted, they are paid to by the camera companies. "Bashing: Deliberately and repeatedly bashing the same brand, product orcompany. If you have a complaint or comment to make, make it once and make sure you have facts to support it." I made one post (quoted above) in weeks, which has to be approved by sir MakoShillPants. For starters, he doesn't seem to know that there is a space in front of company in his sentence 😂. I did provide lots of evidence, there was also social evidence. Users on the new thread someone else created, said that canon has told them that this is the first time hearing about this issue. Are you kidding?! I know that I have seen at least 20 other people just on the forums say they called canon and reported it. They know about it and are lying to save face. You can't hold camera companies responsible to any degree on that joke of a forum dp. Sorry MakoShill, you will not be getting invited to Hawaii, regardless of what your little dreams consist of. Long live the land of the free, EOSHD 🍺

    What LUT For 8-bit CLOG > 709?

    Well, I still haven't read any instructions. I used the CinemaGamut_CanonLog-to-BT709_65 and that seems to be close. I set my camera to ISO 400 and tried ISO 600 with a large key light and small background light. Normal exposure and slightly over exposed; both show pink and green in horizontal bars about 1/8th the screen size. This is on the background wall, it is also quite noisey, enough that I have to use some NR which is a pain. I tried the same settings on the 1DX with Cinestyle, Marvels etc. and there is virtually no noise. I used 12 bit CLOG2 from a C200 & didn't have this bad of noise, also no banding. The only thing I can do is turn on all the lights? Exposure was already close to clipping at ISO 600. Not sure why I can see the same colored banding I see on the EOS R when pushing shadows hard in a raw photo? I saw this when originally testing an Eos R in October, that was without Clog. WTF did they do to these sensors over the 5D IV? Like I have said before, the footage from this camera in 1080p at 24 or 30fps looks decent. I really don't want to buy c200 right now, or old c100 etc. I need a second angle and sick of borrowing/renting every other month. She wasn't happy to do this test late tonight 😂.Screenshot is just 1080p ISO400 CLOG > 709 via CinemaGamut_CanonLog-to-BT709_65 (happens even with just basic s curve, no lut). No adjustments made, once I do, banding and noise obviously get a little worse. Purple/Pink, then Green above it to the left of monitor, then purple on bag below. (Hard to see how bad the noise is in the compressed jpg on a phone, but it is nasty in motion) Virtually nothing in the same spot at ISO 400 on the 1DX ii in Marvels WITH the exposure raised 1 stop (Img compression makes it look much worse than it is, can't see noise at all in premiere/original jpg)

    What LUT For 8-bit CLOG > 709?

    I have always just manually graded, I got the official LUTS from Canon, but there are a million lol. What LUT works best for 8-bit CLOG (not 2 or 3) to rec709? I didn't have time to go through all of them, but most say 10 or 12, assuming that's 10 & 12 bit. I tried a WDR one and that was better. This is for the EOS R default Log footage.

    EOSHD Opinion - The Sony A6400 is an absolute turkey

    It helps it not hunt and jump in & out of focus randomly sometimes. I found that to be preferable to manually focusing, which wasn't completely accurate with peaking anyhow.

    I set the xt3 to have an AF & AWB lock on press. That made the camera fine for me

    I saw a demo of it and when it lost the eyes, it jumped to the background
