  1. It's real! Now, I can't wait for the EOS R6 or maybe the EOS R II haha
  2. My computer nerd loves this (and loves Linus) but it's so dumb hahaha
  3. I can't complain about the stills performance. It's not perfect like native glass, but still pretty good. I shoot HLG on the Sony (HLG2 + BT709). I decided to shoot everything with HLG because it's my sweet spot for good looking image, easy to grade and good enough straight from camera. It also works very good with highlights. And to be honest, I don't like SLOG 2 or 3 at all. For me its a hell for grading and has a poor performance with blacks and shadows. About DR, I find that the BMPCC4K in real world (not controlled test or charts or stuff like that) its way better than the A7III. It has a way better handling of highlights and shadows, light rolloff its pretty nice and "noticeable" against the A7III in the same conditions, and overall it has a more pleasant image, specially with natural light. For me the A7III it's an amazing camera for events,, sports, food and stuff like that where you need more "fresh" footage, with vibrant colors, a lot of movement and detail. The BMPCC4K for me its more for narrative stuff, interviews or content with slower pacing. That's why I use the A7III for AF stuff and the BMPCC for more dedicated stuff with more optical variety.
  4. Yeah, I got the Sigma MC-11 adapter. It's cheap, good build quality but ZERO autofocus on video for the A7III. It focuses amazing on stills (single shot, eye autofocus, animal eye autofocus, tracking, everything works great) but I miss the video AF. I don't have any problems with manual focus, but my A7III it's mostly my gimbal camera, so AF it's a must.
  5. This makes me even more anxious for the EOS R II.
  6. I'm in a weird position right now. I have a BMPCC4K (love it) but I really hate the battery system (currently using it with a bunch of LPE6 and CFast cards) in order to keep everything small. I also have a Sony A7III for stills and video (mostly for the AF with the Ronin) and it works amazing with the Tamron 28-75. The problem? I have a set of Canon L Series (24, 50, 85, 135) They works amazing with the BMPCC, but I really miss the AF when using them on the A7III. So, here are my plans. - Wait and buy the next EOS R for amazing IQ and AF for my lenses (and sell the A7III with everything) I'm pretty sure that I'm going for it. - Buy a Komodo (and sell the BMPCC and the A7III with everything except the cards to make some money). Can't wait for that camera, it also has RF mount so its a perfect match for my lenses. That's it. I'm just waiting for the announcements to start selling.
  7. To be honest this is the first time I'm reading about this brand and their cameras. They look insanely good for the price, specially the Super35 at $3000. Can anyone please share some insight about the reliability of this cameras?
  8. Yeah. I'll need to check that. Also, anyone has used any Blackmagic monitor? Are they reliable? Any thoughts about the OS and how fluid it works with LUTS?
  9. Looks perfect in almost every way. HDMI + SDI and recording to SD Cards and external ssd drives its amazing.
  10. If a client asks and demands for 6K or you REALLY NEED 6K you probably have the budget to rent a better camera. If you don't have the budget you're doing something wrong.

    New Monitor 32" 4K

    This is an excellent choice at 27` https://www.amazon.com/ViewSonic-VP2771-Professional-Calibration-Photography/dp/B01LW8JU15/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=2HZ7ZLX424NOM&keywords=viewsonic+vp2771&qid=1562467043&s=gateway&sprefix=viewsonic+vp27%2Caps%2C281&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1 I have the previous one and I love it.
  12. No, original batteries will always be better in every aspect. You're buying a USD$2000+ camera, investing a 10% of that budget in batteries it's a wise choice (like the Sony A7III at usd$2000 plus 3 batteries for around usd$200 for a total of 4 batteries = 1 day of full work). It's like SD cards, you need reliable hardware for a good work.
  13. I've been following the announcement of this camera and after all the fancy specs that sounds really good on paper, I've realized that, at least for me, this "resolution race, give me more K's stuff" have come to an end. Why? Because if some client ask me specifically for a 6K job I have a lot of better tools than this camera. If you truly need 6K/4K you probably have the budget to rent a RED Dragon/VV/Alexa with far more image quality, lenses, codecs. This camera sits in a really weird spot, because $2000/$2500 cameras are really good. But if I'm going to spend $4000 (add 3000-4000 for cages, batteries, monitors and some lens), maybe save some more money and I will instantly start looking on a more capable tool with a real jump on image quality and ergonomics like a C200 or a used C300MKII, or maybe a used RED. All of them with a good "name" for commercial and indie work. Or if I'm going to shoot an indie movie I can rent an Epic Dragon pack for $1500 a week and got far better quality and workflow.
  14. Thank you so much. So, for obtain any full frame equivalent I need to multiply the lens focal by 0.64 and then by 1.88? For example for a 24mm 24*0.64=15.36 15.36*1.88=28.8 Si it's safe to say that the 24mm will act similar to a 30mm lens? Thats awesome! This will be my first time using the Metabones Speedboster ?
