  1. The only thing you can do is complain and whine. Is that what a "wanna be" needs to hopefully grow up one day? Disappointing. Following your blog for quite some time now, but it get's worse post by post. Could you please stick with productive things instead of bashing companies (especially Sony) for new gear, you don't understand?
  2. Thanks for the info, I already know that by visiting their website. More information is needed, though. Real world handling? Comparison with other systems? Handling of "difficult setups" like the mentioned font heavy combinations? The Moza Air X sounds like a dream for me, but that was the same with the Weebill Lab, which is a total disappointment. Let's see.... Hope you gonna do it right Gudsen!
  3. Thanks a lot, that's a start! But after a first look, that seems to be more about the color that curve that's being used to convert the raw data from the sensor to the 8bits in the final video file. Any more information?
  4. Where did you get this information from? I'd be really interested in the specs for HLG to get a better understanding of the characteristics and how to grade it properly. Any white papers?
  5. Got a mail, yesterday explaining the situation. I'm not happy with this delay, but if the final product is worth it, I can deal with it.
  6. Same here. It's a nice toy, but it's not worth the money, and I don't need another useless thing gathering dust. Mine will be sent back today. My main concerns are: - Video quality. For my taste, it's worse than my iPhone, which is my go-to camera if I can't take my heavy gear with me. - AF is unreliable and sometimes pumping crazy. Unusable footage. - Stupid "PRO" mode, which requires my phone to connect. This should be a stand-alone device, not an add-on for my phone. - Battery: Not changeable, and getting really hot when using the highest settings.
  7. Still waiting for my hardcore Aurora ND filter from Kickstarter. The 82mm model seems to be delayed.... :(
  8. Simple example, out in nature. You want to travel light and don't have your 400mm with you. How handy could be 8k to get closer in post? That's what I'm talking about. Not the guy filming everything with his 18mm and trying to fix that later.
  9. Read my post. I don't need it, but it could be handy. Of course, all the (wannabe?) "pro's" out there who shoot everything perfect, don't need to crop or reframe in post. ? What I wanted to say if you don't understand it, is that it can be useful to have a higher resolution to crop/re-frame.
  10. Disagree. I love to crop/re-frame videos in post a lot. I almost always export in 1080p, but having 4k is very handy. Although I don't *need* 8k, it would be a helpful addition.

  12. As I said, I don't own the Weebill, but following the official discussion on FB. Even Zhiyun says it's not supported. If it's working for you, be happy.
  13. The only gimbals I own are the Zhiyun Crane Plus and the Ronin S. The Weebill LAB is too light for P4K, don't know about the Crane Plus, but it's definitely stronger.
  14. An important factor for gimbals is not only the weight capacity but even more how they handle very front heavy and long setups. For example the new Weebill Lab. It's a great gimbal, great design, but it cannot stabilize a Sony A7III with the 24-70GM, neither the 24-105/F4, and most probably not even the 16-35GM. You might be able to balance such a setup, but the movements will be wobbling and unusable. According to the official specs regarding weight capacity, all the mentioned combinations should work, but in reality, they don't. Of course you can use a light prime lens to avoid this issue, but for me personally, this is a dealbreaker for the Weebill Lab, unfortunately. If the Crane 3 or the Moza Air X solves this problem and provides a better experience than the Ronin S (which handles almost every possible setup), remains to be shown. I really love my Ronin S, but hate it the same time for the weight. Not because I can't carry it, but because it's so much harder for traveling. Any gimbal that is lighter and more compact, would be highly appreciated, if(!) it can handle those "light", but very front heavy mirrorless setups.
  15. "You can't track moving objects with Sony, while you can with the Canon". Read the manual Max. Not mentioning that Sony can't Face-AF in 120fps. Don't know about the others. Pretty useless video. No real conclusion, except that all do a decent job (what you would expect, too). The test setup is so silly and useless. Wasted my time.
