  1. The reality is, good hybrid cameras is what consumers are looking for now and for the foreseeable future. Although everyone doesn’t need proper 4K, that plus video autofocus are features that sells cameras and Canon does not have a DSLR(besides 1Dx II), EOS-M, EOS-R or P&S with proper 4K and DPAF. If Canon would’ve ridden the wave from the market that they accidentally created with the 5DII, they probably would’ve monopolized the prosumer and consumer camera market. Just image a competitively spec’d C100, 5DIII, 7DII and/or EOS-M with DPAF and 4K. The A7 series, Fuji X series and the GH series would’ve had a very hard time poaching Canon users and new to market customers. Although Nikon was late to the game, at least they’re making a valiant effort. My 1DX II has been sitting on the sidelines ever since I got the X-T3 and now I have my eye on the GFX series.
  2. For some people, once you use DPAF, you cannot go back to a camera that doesn’t have a similar feature even if you do not use that feature often. I didn’t think I needed DPAF until I got a 1Dx II. It’s a game changer for solo and doc shooters in certain situations and for specific shots. Also, most users of the small form factor cameras are solo shooters or small production companies. They dropped the ball by using a contrast based AF system, especially considering all of the tech they packed into that camera.
  3. Because Canon continues to hoard their 4K non-crop and DPAF features for their cinema line at a time in which most other brands are offering it in all of their cameras. That 1.8x crop is a killer when you factor in that you have to change lenses to go between 1080p and 4K to get the same FOV. If the 5D3, 5D4 or 6DII had proper 4K, most previous Canon owners would have never jumped ship.
  4. I had no issues watching it on my Vizio 4K TV which is calibrated using the HBO Go App on my Apple TV 4K. Most people set their TVs to a Vivid high contrast profile with HFR on and wonder why some shows and movies dont render properly.

  5. I am always looking for some new indy videos for ideas and motivation. Post 1-2 links to videos that inspire you.
  6. I meant OIS. OIS has worked amazingly on my 18-55mm and 10-24mm. The XT3 auto focus works great in photo and video mode, including eye detection. The main issue is that it bounces from face to face, but that will be fixed in the next update including improved AF. The main thing I miss when I am not using my 1DXII, is object tracking and the canon LCD. Sony ergonomics and color kills it for me. The A9 seems to be legit though. As the previous person mentioned, I sold my GH5 and the only thing I miss is the ability to record to both slots while shoooting video and the flip-out screen.
  7. Gotcha. I wasnt sure if Sennheiser screw mount was a special size.
  8. I owned both the GH5 and XT3 at the same time and sold the GH5 for a second Xt3. I also own a 1DX Mark II for reference, so I am not biased. I have used the Sony extensively and I wouldnt buy it unless it was life or death. Get the XT3: Great video autofocus with native or adapted lenses Better colors Better Sensor Hybrid Shooter - The photography features are top notch Better codecs especially with the Ninja V Great IBIS Lenses Amazong Internal Preamps Better ISO performance GH5: Flipout screen Battery life button layout IBIS - I am a motivated movement shooter, so I do not need IBIS XLR Add-on Sony: If you want to spend extra time in post color grading. I am sure I missed a few things.
  9. Is there a better and more affordable alternative to the Sennheiser CL-1 or is the locking part proprietary? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/253265-REG/Sennheiser_CL1_CL1_Mini_to_Mini.html/?ap=y&gclid=Cj0KCQjwsZ3kBRCnARIsAIuAV_Swz64ER-elkTtbrn3d9vZ0NHtNcBEetzAxvDonNRMXz49lT-gw0CwaAuIxEALw_wcB&lsft=BI%3A514&smp=Y

    z6 vs XT3

    4K 60fps done deal!
  11. I will definitely get a blimp down the line, but I have a few more production items that I have to invest in first. I will look into the Rycote. I love their undercovers. Thanks
  12. It fits either way. The deadcat is somewhat adjustable. I am using the Audio-Technica AT897.
  13. When using a Boom/Shotgun mic on a boom outdoors, do you guys use the foam windscreen and fur windscreen/DeadCat together, or do you remove the base foam windscreen that comes with most mics?
  14. Thank you for your post. I think the combination of the lower res lcd, slightly lower contrast and sharpness is what I am seeing. At the end of the day, I fully understand I can only expect so much from a $1500 camera. I normally shoot flat, but I ended up bumping up the brightness, saturation and sharpness in screen settings. By any chance, have you tried using your XT3 with an external monitor?
