  1. Obviously not grab and go like the c300 or FS7 but maybe with some kinda Zacuto or Shape rig. In my experience the extra IQ you get with Cine cameras isn't worth the tradeoff over quality of life features like built in xlr, smaller DV style batteries that weigh less, peripherals that don't need an extra power source etc.
  2. They might be saving a 10 bit only camera for the C100mk3. 4K 24 - 4K 60 10 bit 422 1080 24 - 1080 120fps 10 bit 422 No SDI No raw internal 13 - 14 stop sensor Not modular like the c500mkii/c300mkiii Built on the same chassis as the C100mkii $4500
  3. I knew you'd be the 1st guy to respond, being the resident sound guy and all lol
  4. And to think I was about to pull the trigger on Sennheiser AVX's! "Deity BP-TRX units sold inside the USA will disable audio transmission when you hit record. Only internationally sold units will feature the ability to transmit and record simultaneously." Looks like i'll have to buy these from a retailer in Canada or the UK because Zaxcom's BS patent on record/transmission in the US is responsible for this. FEATURES ⬇️ Transmit and record simultaneously Multiple Boot Modes (TX + Recorder, RX mode, IEM mode, Camera Hop mode, Master TX mode, TC Box mode, and Audio Recorder only mode) Multiple RF Outputs (10mW, 25mW, 50mW, 100mW, AUTO) Guard Rail™️ Analog Limiter Variable Low Cut Filter – up to 200Hz Boost Audio Frequencies 7KHz – 20Khz Assign User ID’s to each transmitter 1.3″ OLED display USB Digital Audio Output Record 24bit/48kHz BWF WAV files to MicroSD card Stereo 3.5mm Input Timecode accuracy of ±0.2ppm Output Timecode and audio at the same time** via the locking 3.5mm output jack ~12Hrs of battery life at 50mW*** Headphone jack for setup monitoring and listening to playback**** Screen and button auto-lock Firmware updatable Rugged metal build quality. ALL FOR $250.00 I liked the Deity Connect BP-TX/DUO RX system but that duo RX is just way to big for a 1 man band shooter that rarely records to person interviews and doesn't need the extra transmitter. The goal for me will be to match this new BP TRX (used a receiver/recorder) with the BP TX (Transmitter). I already have a Countryman B3 lav mic with a Sennheiser connector so it feels like this is a match made in heaven.
  5. I used Premiere Pro for 5 years, recently had the chance to try Final Cut Pro X this year at school. Even though I hate Apple I gave it a fair chance. Safe to say i'll be sticking with Resolve Studio.
  6. get a good quality external monitor like a Focus Oled.
  7. Yeah Dale from Vistek said it was very good also. I personally can't stand the robotic gimbal look, this kinda reminds me of the shoulder rig feel which is my favorite look. It's clearly better than the C500mkii's ebis, I hope all future gen Sony's can get access to this.
  8. I pulled the trigger on the BM5 and decided i'll do a little review on it. PROS Very bright with a solid build quality. Colors are accurate and I love being able to load and store luts in the monitor. SDI + HDMI are also a bonus. Monitor comes with a few cables like a dtap and camera control. You will need to supply your own mounting hardware and batteries. The False color is solid, no crazy latency issues either. The monitor is VERY sharp, so sharp you might need to dial it down. Depending on what your shooting you might not even need peaking as the perceived detail is enough to pull focus from. I really enjoy the fact that you can do monochrome viewing + color peaking. Makes manual focus very easy. Use NPF/Sony L batteries = cheap and very abundant. CONS There are some things that irk me about the monitor. For instance you have toggle through every view mode when using the waveform. (I only want to use the view mode when it takes up a smaller portion in the corner of the screen.) With the focus peaking it will put the color edges around your camera screen icons which is annoying. I don't remember either of my SmallHDs doing that. The Zebra setting has numerical values that make no sense, its not the typical 0 - 109 IRE. The fan when set to high is pretty loud but that's to be expected with a 5 inch monitor that's 2200 nits! I leave mine set to medium speed usually. The UI as a whole sucks compared to SmallHD's, its slower and not as intuitive. This is by far the biggest pitfall of the monitor and what keeps it from be a 5 star product. I use it with my FS5 and A7iii. Its a fantastic monitor for outdoor viewing with the 2200 Nits. I shoot sports outdoors and a lot times under the mid day sun and I haven't had any viewing issues with it. With the FS5 I use batteries with a dtap port so I don't have to use extra NPF batteries on the back of the unit. CONCLUSION Overall a very good value for $500, a good alternative if you want something more rugged than an Atomos Shinobi/Smallhd FOCUS but think the SmallHD 502B/503 ultrabright are to expensive.
  9. Id rather have built in NDs than IBIS and a Mechanical shutter.
  10. 1. FS5 w/100 - 400 G master. Sometimes I'll run a 70 210 f4 FD or a 70-300 FD. 2. I eat, sleep, and breath, the sport of lacrosse. I hate video but I love color grading. College Sophomore. 3. I like rap/hip hop mostly but I listen to some 80s style synth occasionally. The breakfast Club and Top Gun are my favorite movies. 4. Please cover more lenses both vintage and modern, id like to see some stuff about the SLR magic primes and Zeiss CP.3s. Since ima Sony Fan boy A7siii or FX6. 5. Sweet Tea (if your from the South East US, you know what I'm talking about.) 6. I believe 2018.
  11. Thats my thought process, if the audio is important I going to the xlr on my fs5 or use my external recorder.
  12. My a7iii has some noise but not as bad as that video. So clearly the a7iii didn't get the a7s preamps. I think theirs might be defective. My old A6300 had a better sounding preamp.
  13. I totally forgot that Slog 3 exists due to the fact I'm used to running 8 bit cameras. But I've been testing it the last few days and am super impressed with how easily it grades. I made an Slog 3 LC 709 conversion lut for grading. I expose my Slog 3 on the Sony FS5 at 1.5 stops over. With Bright at 77 IRE - You can use a conjunction of AE shift and the variable ND filter set to auto to make exposing really easy. Only thing bad about Slog 3 is that its a bitch when trying to monitor. Its like comparing Slog 2 vs Cine 4. It's VERY flat which makes it hard to check focus. Conversion Lut - https://www.dropbox.com/s/6yrozb1z5olhez9/Slog3 LC 709 Correction.cube?dl=0 Just use a creative lut after you apply this one and with some minor exposure tweaking you should be good. (You will probably need to lower the Luts intensity)
  14. I help run the largest photography/videography server on Discord. Political discussions almost always end in some kind of clusterfuck or cesspool of BS so we banned politics outright.
  15. Thanks! And yeah I really the FS5 size its not so light that you run into issues with micro jitters like how I did when I had the A6300, and its not as big and bulky like a FS7 or C200/C300 with the top handle and LCD array. I wish both XLR inputs were on the body like the EVA 1 or FS7 instead of 1 on the top handle. I have the smallrig fs5 top/cheese plate because I prefer to use a quick release nato rail handle.
  16. "Shane Hurlbut, ASC Makes Illumination Experience Workshop Free" I plan to start watching tomorrow afternoon. https://www.provideocoalition.com/shane-hurlbut-asc-makes-illumination-experience-workshop-free/
  17. It was really due to the fact that Wlax is a non contact sport, but they are starting to implement helmets for the women's game. I believe there are only 2 states rn that mandate the use of a helmet for Wlax, funny thing is the girls refuse to wear them because they look ugly. The women's helmet is actually soft and pliable so if you hit a girl in the head that doesn't have one they wont get concussed. Once helmets are mandated/required for all levels of play they will probably switch to hardshell helmets like the men's game.
  18. Thanks, I always shoot on a tripod. I deliver B-roll style highlight mixes after the game. I plan to make some videos about how I shoot, although the Covid19 outbreak has put a halt on sports stuff I can shoot.
  19. Currently in the honeymoon phase with my FS5. I bought mine mid summer last year and it took a couple of months to get the images I wanted from it. Here's a mix of games I shot a few weeks ago. 10 bit 422 240fps in 1080p with no crop has been amazing. Variable ND filter is a game changer as well. FS7 dropping in price is tempting ngl, but the FS5 is so much smaller and easier to travel with. FX9 inside of an FS5 body (which is definitly possible) is my dream camera. Great DR, class leading cine cam autofocus, class leading cine cam lowlight performance with dual native iso, variable ND, great mic preamps, and a rugged body. 😵
  20. Yeah I do sports videography, shit has me fucked up RN.
