  1. I recently acquired a Eizo CS270 for a little less than 600 euro used on the bay but in a brand new condition. It's a very good monitor, good colors but QHD resolution. Before using this monitor, I have never been thinking the difference between images displayed in sRGB vs Adobe RGB would be so noticeable. A good thing of the Eizo monitors is the (totally free) Color Navigator software, quite simple to use yet very performing and comprehensive. Real 10 bit monitors are not so many, many are 8 bit + 2 frc.
  2. The major movie critics very often just make a competition of stupidity and nonsense Totally agree, the typical contradiction of liberals, they want absolute liberty in every possible way and then complain about the effects of it
  3. When I was building my pc, I found this articles interesting: https://www.cgdirector.com/best-computer-for-video-editing/ https://www.4kshooters.net/2019/01/16/how-to-choose-the-best-video-editing-computer/ https://www.provideocoalition.com/building-a-photo-and-video-editing-dream-machine-for-2019/ In the order of priority, you should invest in power unit, CPU, RAM, NVMe SSD, graphic card. I think your best bet in a "normal" price range (around 500 euro/usd/gbp/etc.) would be the Intel i9 9900k cpu, probably the best compromise of cost/power. It's also a processor that can be easily found in many pre-set configuration, so probably you can eat a small cake by choosing a mass produced processor compared to more specialized ones used only for niche uses. I insist on the power unit since it's something easily forgotten but it can have a huge impact on your final configuration. And the difference in cost between a low and high watt power unit is so small there is really no need to save some coins here. Have some margin and be safe. The 10 bit issue is that in order to work properly with a 10 bit file you need a camera that can record 10 bit, a monitor that can show 10 bit, a cable that supports 10 bit, a software that can work in 10 bit and finally a graphic card that can output 10 bit. The problem with adobe is that the software cannot use the 10 bits properly with the normal "gaming" cards. Until this latest drive update of this summer (I could not find yet many info about), you had to use one of the more professional and expensive Quadro cards to output 10 bit with adobe programs. If your pc/monitor cannot show 10 bit, you will work and see your videos in 8 bits, even if your video is in 10 bit. Depending on the situation, this can or cannot make any practical difference. It's the same thing as with color spaces. If you work on a image recorded in Adobe RGB but your monitor/software can only show sRGB, you will see your image in the lesser color space, so you don't have full control of what you are doing. https://petapixel.com/2019/07/29/nvidia-unveils-new-studio-driver-with-support-for-10-bit-color-for-creatives/
  4. I also built a pc for video/photo editing and this is the configurations I went with: - i9 9900k - 32 gb RAM - 750 watt power unit - ssd samsung evo for softwares - 2T hard drives for storage - eizo cs270 screen I still need to install a video card and possibly also an active cooler for the cpu. Advices. - go large with the power unit. Go with a minimun of 600watt, the difference in cost is not so high to justify some savings here. Have some margin for possible upgrades and for overloads. - the 10 bit issue. The XT3 can record in 10 bit. Until this summer, only NVidia Quadro card could output 10 bit with Adobe softwares. Without one of those cards, you were actually seeing on the display a 8 bit signal. Now it seems also GTX and RTX cards can with the latest drives. Personally, I am considering one among the GTX 1660, 1060, 1070 or RTX 2060 cards.
  5. The X pro line are not pure rangefinder cameras. The cameras have a hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder. There is an electronic overlay on the screen with the field of view of the lens used. Basically you can see a larger field of view than the one the lens capture. But they don't have the rangefinder focusing capabilities, no split image coming together on the focusing plane. I have used only the xpro1 but from what I know, fuji has changed the optical screen in the xpro2.
  6. Tough construction
  7. Another advantage is the FTZ adapter, which gives you full access to the huge Nikon lens arsenal, including some specialized lenses like a 300mm f2.8, 500 f4, 135 f2, the PCE lenses
  8. Glad to hear Panasonic is aware of the problem and probably will find a way to fix it in the coming months
  9. Instead you found the ghosting in both VLog and non Vlog?
  10. What kind of recording was it? Internal, external?
  11. Do these clippings occur with artificial light or also with natural light? Artficial lighting can have any kind of strange light components and can always be turned off. All the blue clipping image samples looks like they involve led lights. Do this clippings occur also with natural situations like a good saturated blue sky, a green grass field, a nice yellow sunset, etc?
  12. Leaving aside the field of view and lens vignetting differences, the pixel per pixel is simply that, you are recording the individual pixel of the video frame directly with no subsampling involved. I don't know the specs but the 4k FF recording probably comes from a 6K/5,9K readout, so you get better quality/improved color. On the other side, since the pixel/pixel recording would have less processing involved, I assume will be a faster reading, so less rolling shutter. This is my assumption.
  13. Actually if you count the 200 euro vlog update, this camera is about 1200 euro more than the S1, but if offer a lot more. By the way, I just checked cvp store and there is an offer with the XLR audio module included for free
  14. Glad I held myself from getting a S1 yet. I am really interested in this camera. A major deciding factor for me would be those apertures on the sides for the cooling system. I hope it's an additional element added on the sealed chassis with a heatsink connecting the inside with the outside. Otherwise it would not be a camera to be used confidentially under bad weather or wind. But if you look at big boy brands like RED, Alexa, most of them have vans and people use them in any kind of environments, from the deserts down to -30 or so. For the Gb/money ratio, SD are the best option. If you need huge amount of Gb space, at a certain point it's cheaper to add an Atomos recorder and SSD drives. It's listed at 4000 euro or about 3300 without vat, body only
