  1. I'm generally pretty hard on YouTubers but Gerald is harmless and doesn't claim to be anything more than someone that enjoys gear, enjoys talking about gear, and enjoys making videos about gear. He's pretty transparent in my view. It's definitely not for everyone but I also don't think people go to him to learn about the actually art of filmmaking.
  2. Yeah, from what I've seen / heard there's no real difference optically between the FF and S35 lenses. You're better off saving money and getting it in M43 or EF mount (if you're looking to adapt.)
  3. It's just very strange though that they are using a Sony sensor. One has to wonder why?
  4. I get why they made it the second native ISO, since it is meant for ultra low light situations, but I agree 12,800 is too high for most people. I think most folks that bought the A7siii would've been just as better off waiting for an A7IV. It never made a ton of sense to me for these people, many who never shoot outside their "studio" or in anything other than sunlight, to get a camera meant for low light conditions but that's YouTube these days.
  5. I am judging this on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ fwiw.
  6. They're very, very similar but if I had to choose I'd go with B. The shadows aren't as crushed and the blues pop a little more.
  7. No overheating issues either? ---- There aren't a ton of great budget camcorders out there these days unfortunately. Most are terribly outdated. The ZV1 or something like the Lumix DMC-FZ2500, which has internal ND, is probably your best bet.
  8. Either way, in addition to processing power, I imagine you'd need a huge buffer to handle outputting slow motion via HDMI unless it was limited to a couple seconds.
  9. That was my initial thinking but I think they are talking about outputting slow motion to an external recorder and are using "monitor" in a different context.
  10. Oh! Do you mean outputting slow motion via the HDMI? Doh!
  11. I don't think that's possible but I'm not a physicist.
  12. I believe the Hero4 Black was the first with 4K. I don't recall it being very great 4K though. Anything short of being in bright sunlight didn't look very good, if I recall correctly. The GoPro Hero5 Black had better 4K but it sells for about $150US used it seems... At that point you're better off just spending the extra on the DJI Osmo Action imo.
  13. Anything can be used for a consumer user ha ha, I just wouldn't expect it to be any good. Your best bet is to just spend the extra money to get something that is decent. Not sure what else to say!
  14. I love them so much and still keep an eye out to finish my set. What really impressed me was how good they are wide open and overall how sharp they are without being too sharp like a lot of modern lenses are. I think I paid $90 shipped for the Rokkor-X 50mm f1.4 and it saddens me that the days of finding deals like that are long gone!
