  1. You definitely understand my stuggle right now! I do have the XT3, its my main photo camera and I love it. I have never updated it so I will give that a good scouts try today. After reading through, it seems like if there was a S5 that existed that had RAW output and a significantly improved AF that would be my ticket. Maybe a MK2.
  2. I know its a joke, but genuinely this is what I do alot of for local musicians and artists lol This is a great photo to depict it as well!
  3. Agree, I still have the occasional freakout. But the thing is, Im so bad at operating the gimbal and framing the shot and pulling focus at the same time that it rarely gets used. If I am outside I can stop down to 5.6 on the Zeiss and it is easier but not much. Still very large and unwieldy.
  4. So funny enough, this is actually what I am using when I fly the P4K on the Ronin. I'm very bad at juggling framing and focus and where im stepping. It was actually using this very setup, P4K+FF+Ronin that made me realize I hate this and need AF. Maybe I just need to practice even more. I unfortunately have never done a shoot with the budget for a 1st AC. So audio, all cameras, lighting is typically 100% me. This is a small-ish town in the midwest so there is not much to choose from.
  5. The S5 + 28-70 Sigma has really seemed like an awesome option especially if there is a firmware update planned for RAW.
  6. AF is hit or miss for me only if there is someone behind the subject. It was never able to tell which face was closer.
  7. Hello all! For various reasons, I put down the rigs at the end of 2019 and in the last few weeks I have picked them back up for some short films and small events here in town and I got the itch again. One of the reasons I put down my cameras was I felt I was limited in mobility. When I used an a6500 on a DJI Ronin S I felt I could go anywhere and film anything because of the size/weight and the AF. I upgraded to XT3's and a BMPCC4K to gain a PQ upgrade, but my functionality of what I was able to do really went down and I actually lost gigs over it, especially with the P4K, when
  8. I picked up a Zeiss Distagon 25f2 T* and it does not have very much focus breathing at all - added some gears and im happy.
  9. eBay link please~ Also -My examples.. they are named after the F-stop of course - so much character and vibe wide open!!! Stopped down to F4(-ish because the XL does weird math on my P4K) its sharp and gorgeous.
  10. This one is next! Got the lens today. So doing tests in a bit~
  11. Awesome! By chance you have a few sample clips/screengrabs sitting around? Can't find a whole lot of good examples on this guy
  12. EF - I shoot on a P4K w XL and an XT3 w a Fringer
  13. Hey guys! Got a stupid good deal on Zeiss Distagon 35 f2 T* i’m getting it next week. $300 Anyone used this? Comments concerns i should know about? I already have FF gears that will fit but just wanting everyone’s experience with them. Either way, I plan on sharing usage over with my photo camera too.
  14. Hey team, hope everyone’s day is going good. I am working on a project with a band right now, and i want to integrate my friend who is a much better editor than me. However he does not use Davinci, but using PrPro right now. What is the best way for an easy hand off? I have a drive full of BRAW. Do i make a database? Do i grade the whole raw files and then just give him the ProRes? I’d like to finish in Davinci, and he does have the free version. How can I send him the project and then he sends it back edited? Sorry for seemly dumb question, I am just new to collaboratio
  15. Hey guys! Diving into anamorphic this next few weeks and I think I have finally settled on what i’m gunna do. Rapido’s Full Package C.
