  1. I think it is. I'm seriously thinking of adding a Shinobi, when I don't need the ProRes recording of my Ninja V and I want to get rid of the Ninja's horrendous fan noise.
  2. That's an Executive Producer.
  3. If you have the V-Log upgrade, it may be a good idea to skip it. Shoot in Cine-D and it will be less noisy. Use an f/1.7 or faster lens if you have it. There are really cheap Canon FD-Mount 50mm f/1.4 lenses ($50 USD on eBay). Also, I second using the Aputure AL-F7 ($100 USD) as it's bi-color and gives off a ton of light. I also recommend the Aputure Space Light modifier. Although it is a bowens mount modifier, you can just drop the AL-F7 in the opening an secure it with some tape for an amazing lightweight, portable and cheap soft light.
  4. Just like several users on this site posting at the same time get the correct response, you can encode the TOF transmission to the unique serial number of the camera.
  5. Do the displays support HLG, HDR10 or PQ? I get an HDR output to my Sony 4K HDR TV set on my Ninja V, but you have to enable HDR output in the settings panel.

    Race to the bottom

    I have a friend who is the greatest guy. He has these dreams and aspirations that some company is going to hire him to be the 'marketer' creating all the video content and that then he and his long distance love can get married and start their own video company. But he doesn't have a reel. He can't three point light worth a damn and he's 40 years old living in his mom's basement. All this, not to mention a failure to understand what a marketer truly does. This is the competition who will take the corporate commercial job for less than $500. He's not trying to make a living. He's trying to survive.
  7. A new EVA-1 firmware got announced that is now called EVA 3.0 https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/panasonic-drives-innovation-in-live-production-at-nab-2019-300825278.html
  8. If you think the colors from the GH5 are pretty good, rent the GH5S for a few days, and you'll see just how great the GH5S is over the GH5.
  9. You simply can't lump the highlight roll off of the GH5 and GH5S together, as the GH5S is way better! V-Log-L and HLG both are way better than anything the GH5 can muster.
  10. We all knew that there was no way in the world Canon would jeopardize their Cinema Line. Not for the love of Christ. Not ever. Just wait for all the Canon fanboys and girls to sing the praises of Touch AF like Canon invented it or something. It's about time they catch up to a 5 year old feature from Panasonic and Olympus. 😑
  11. I think you are seriously misinformed about the position of video in media creation. Give it five years and video production will outweigh stills. That is usually the stance of shooters who still long for the smell of developing fluid and dodge and burn techniques. The future is now, and it's changing everything. No matter what you do, you can't stop it. You either adapt or become irrelevant.
  12. They can be calibrated just like a computer monitor with a Spyder color calibrator.
  13. I hooked my computer (a PC) with a professional graphics card (AMD Vega Frontier Edition) that will do true 10-bit output to my HDR television for a cheap way to grade HDR footage. If you have an HDR television, you can check out a test I did here using Premiere Pro CC.
  14. If you are using a Panasonic camera, then the Ronin-S is the best way to go. Support for follow focus, start/stop record and
