  1. Cinema5D are attempting a virtual NAB - https://***URL not allowed***/cinema5d-planning-virtual-trade-show-to-give-nab-news-a-stage-manufacturers-invited/
  2. Andrew How long did you have the camera before returning it?
  3. 2020 camera plans? If possible, move to a Canon workflow. XF400 + Canon EOS RP would be good for me.
  4. I like the screen, 10 bit and the ports. Would swap 8k for excellent 1080 and an android operating system with built in WiFi and cellular abilities. I think resolution improvements are a dead end (as a sales factor) as far as the majority of the public, content creators and film makers are concerned. Good on Sharp for trying something new though and I hope it works out for them.
  5. I find Sony’s metering (regardless of the setting used) to be similarly useless.. Especially in photo mode. I’m not buying anymore in the future. Spec’s be damned!
  6. I currently shoot most of my work with two Panasonic GX80’s with occasional use of a GoPro Hero Black 7. For sound I use a Zoom recorder. Apart from interviews, most filming is handheld with no rigs. Bradgate Park Archaeology Field School Ancient History What is Sociology Live?
  7. Whose the audience? What do they need to know? Then answer these questions: Where are we? What are you/the subject doing? Why are you/the subject doing it? And so what? (Or why should I care)
  8. I’m aware of that. I thought i was being clear that I was talking to other people interested in the European model who might assume they get 30 mins continuous recording in all main settings when they don’t.
  9. Just for others interested in this (but perhaps the European version, the gx80) let me tell you the recording specs as they aren’t all the same as you may expect.. All MP4 4k 25p = 29m59s 4k 24p = 29m59s 1080 50p = 20m20s* 1080 25p = 27m09s* * I really don’t know why 1080p gives shorter recording times. I find it quite annoying when doing interviews.
  10. I live in constant fear of that happening to me..
  11. I work alone. I’ll take whatever tech I can to make my life easier.
  12. Can you not use a separate audio recorder and sync in post?
  13. Canon have always tried for extreme segmentation, I remember this daft situation from a few years ago.. https://snapshot.canon-asia.com/article/en/eos-800d-vs-eos-77d-vs-eos-80d-which-camera-to-get Its clear they still have this mindset only now instead of having too many competing cameras, they have too few. Hence the large gap from the 90d etc to Eos R just for 24p... its a ridiculous situation. Made much worse by the fact they have removed a basic spec to create a difference rather than a genuine technical advance.
  14. Thanks for this. So there is a licensing cost to using h.264 but it doesn’t matter whether you use one flavour or multiple? To put it another way, using more than one frame rate doesn’t increase the licensing costs?
  15. Where’s your evidence for 24fps licensing costs? Please don't repeat your educated guess that’s what is happening here. I'm interested in seeing a link to evidence.
  16. I think you’ve got a over focus on technology, particularly resolution. I turn up on plenty of jobs with small cameras (including the ‘hobbyist’ LX100 and no one cares. The results matter but probably more importantly how I get the results. Quietly, unobtrusive and with the minimum of fuss. I get hired over so many obnoxious idiots with their massive cameras and attitudes to match.. But please, keep making your grand statements..
  17. Mmm GoPro’s are buggy but great.. I use mine all the time on paying jobs
  18. I’m stuck with Premiere as I’m always doing short term contracts and need to be able to slot in with existing teams/workflows with zero headaches. Everywhere I go, Adobe is the standard. Hence I’m stuck..
  19. It’s a shame Sony don’t kaizen the menus, colour science and ergonomics..
  20. Having bought and sold quite a few different Sony’s in my life, I’m no longer tempted by their specs. Menus and ergonomics need radical improvement before I’d be tempted again.
  21. I have to smile a little with this challenge. My freelance kit consists of two gx80’s (same sensor as the gx800). One with the 12-32 kit lens and the other with a borrowed Olympus 45mm f1.8. With them I’ve recently shot five films for Morrison’s (supermarket chain in the UK) and photographed a wedding (but with rented lenses). So it would be less of a ‘challenge’ and more my usual experience lol Having said that I think it’s a great idea Andrew Jonathan
  22. One of five films created for Morrison’s in the UK (supermarket chain). Filmed on two GX80’s. Discreet, stabilised and good enough for this job.
