  1. I haven't tried AFC too much with touch auto focus. AFC is so bad I've just been pulling focus manually thought the Ronin-S focus wheel.
  2. Yes, but it's different than how the GH5 line works. You have to have the camera in AFS mode for touch focus to work, as it doesn't work in MF mode. Took me awhile to figure this out ?!

    DJI Ronin S

    I think the light weight of the camera is causing your issues. You still have to learn how to walk appropriately with the duck walk, and you have to calibrate it before each use. I have both the Ronin-M and the Ronin-, and I've used the S&M (excuse the pun) with the GH5S and I've only used the S1H on my Ronin-S. I've got excellent footage with them both, but the extra weight of the M really helped keep the footage smoother. Now that the S1H is significantly heavier and has built in IBIS, the footage coming off of the cam looks like it's on rails!
  4. My Panasonic S1H is in the corner crying uncontrollably.
  5. I have never shot a thing with the 1080p, even though I have a custom setting set to the 1080p 120hz HFR mode with audio and autofocus! ?
  6. When I hear comments like this, makes me think this camera will have legs for a very long time!
  7. Here is a video shot to really push the hell out of the grade and stress the 200Mbps H265 codec. Shot in 5.9K encoded at 50Mbps with 150Mbps Mbps maximum.
  8. If you are using a Ronin-S gimbal, you can pull voltage from the accessory port, and that provides 12V with 2A capacity.
  9. I have a Godox SL-150 light. Great light output (f/5.6-8 on my S1H at ISO-400 for a two up shot with a 3x3 thick film diffusion at 100%), Bowens mount and is excellent for music videos, but It's louder than the fan on my Ninja V and S1H combined and then tripled! Listen, you cannot use this for most indie film or ANY interview style production because the light is just too fucking loud!!! I ran this for an interview in a double baffled softbox around 4 feet from the subject. The subject had a wireless lav on, and it sounds like a hair drier is running the whole interview!
  10. That's one of the best features on the S1H, and I use it all the time. When shooting in V-LOG, it even shows you the reading in stops over middle gray, so you can just tag a highlight and a subject's face and your going to go!
  11. Yeah, I got it; and they broke some stuff too. Now you can't enable tally lights if you have the camera in Silent mode. I wonder what else was busted with this update as they tried to merge in the changes from the S1 codeline. Goes to show just how separate the code branches are between the S1 and the S1H for regressions like this to happen and not get caught. Of course I'm sensitive to this because I do this for a living at the day job, and it gets under my skin to see someone fumble product update with so much on the line.
  12. S1H IBIS Performance. Shot in very windy conditions, all hand-held.
  13. I just experienced this myself. On a static face at 105mm f/4, face detection will rack all the way from infinity to macro. Damn lucky I was able to cut to the GH5S shot in the edit while I switched over to manual! I tried this once on a pro job, and it damn sure was my last! I need to do some more testing, like changing f/4 to f/8 (to mimic the DOF of my GH5S at f/4) and see how it fares. But really, it just is quite unusable! I bitched on the Facebook forums, and Nick Driftwood said I needed to use +2 Speed and +2 Sensitivity. Well guess what, that was what I was using! ?
