  1. Of course it would always be great to have a high end work station but just to add another view point to some of the high spec suggestions above.. It depends what files you are working with ie low compression raw files will need the fast raid drives but files from gh5/fujis/Sony's not so much. I am currently using a i7 7700k with a Amd Rx 480 (8gb) GPU and no big raid set ups. I use resolve with a variety of 4k footage from Pana/Fuji/blackmagics and can run all projects at the full frame rates with smooth editing all around. Only noise reduction slows it down. Even with a bunch of nodes and film convert it still 100% smooth. For me a bigger rig would only cut render times and improve noise reduction performance. So think about your usesage/budget together.
  2. I'm just not sure, the blackmagics are way cheaper, the c200 a bit cheaper and the reds at the opposite side with redraw and a well established system. I would love a play with one especially alongside a cheaper and more expensive option to see how it fits but I'd be more likely to get a pocket 4k to go along my fujis. If I was doing a feature film anytime soon I'd look hard at Red Gemini I think. I like that a more established model has more community and range of luts around it.
  3. Sony has a problem with the grip being close to the mount, if you have a big lens it leaves no finger room. That and skin tones that age you to 2 weeks after death
  4. I honestly don't get the small camera thing. I think the xh1 is small, I have an XT3 too which I love but the palm of my hand gets a bit crampy after a while holding it with a weird crab claw zoidberg grip it makes me use. Xh1 use all day no problem with my human hands
  5. I got a quick look (30 secs) by chance at one of these..... So not even close to having a real opinion yet and would like a closer look. All I can say is as a first impression the 3d effect is half as good as I expecting. Of course it may be my expectations at fault for that ? Initially I would say Nintendo 3ds ISH quality plus 10-20%
  6. I guess it's more complex than I realised. Still regardless of whether I know what I'm doing, I still prefer the lowest sharpening settings on all the cameras I have owned so far ?
  7. I don't want to sound to negative towards the XT3 image because I think it's pretty wonderful overall and a more pleasing image than I had from the gh5.. however I wish all these cameras would add an 'off' to the noise reduction and sharpness. Then we could add a little for straight out cam looks if we like but leave it off for doing later or just leaving it natural. I guess people would be shocked at how noisy beyond iso 400 on a gh5 would be without the processing though ?
  8. The fact that the 4k doesn't have that razer blade in your eyes sharpness (along with nice colour) is the only reason I would still like a look the the eos R despite the crop and rolling shutter. So far with the XT3 I turn down sharpness and leave a diffusion filter on by default
  9. Update for you. One green pixel per camera. (Xh1,XT3) How does that compare to what you would normally expect?
  10. Just had a look at Max's test. The only thing that caught my eye was the sharpening on the z7 (I assume that can be turned down further? Unless he already had it down) not a fan of that sort of thing. I don't think I've ever cropped more than 20% at most and 99% of my shots stay as they are. I have seen no footage from the canon that I thought did not look perfectly detailed and sharp. Still not buying one though ? XT3 is too good for the price out of this bunch.
  11. I thought it may be useful info especially if anyone is filming in a hot climate. I have not noticed any hot pixels or any image issues at all, but I have not been looking for them. If I let the cameras run for a bit and then get some raw stills what is best to shoot? A flat colour wall or something like that ?
  12. I think if they released it 6 months ago it would have been 4k 30p at 100mbs but now they have waited and the competition has changed we will see 4k 60p and higher bit rates and 10 bit on the hdmi at the very least. Probably this coming spring time Of course they finally need a full new processor for the new features.... Kind of like going straight to an a7s4
  13. Ah ok, I have seen people joke about some scammy guy but I'm not familiar with what happened. I live in Cairo but I'm from the UK
  14. I just did a little overheating test on my Xh1 and XT3. What triggered this was my Xh1 freezing after 10 minutes filming in direct sunlight in Cairo. (So not unexpected) Back at home with a room temperature of 31c... The xh1 recorded 15min 4k(max rec length) but upon hitting record again froze. Took battery out and straight back in and got another 15 minutes..... Same thing happened 3 times in a row, got the full 15 minutes but then a freeze upon hitting record again. It did not freeze while recording like it did out in the sun. The X-T3......... No problems at all. Did 3 30 minute recordings back to back. No freeze's. Was hot to touch but less than the xh1. Next time I'll try taking the X-T3 out in the sun, just the lack of ibis is why I used the xh1 in this case. All recording at 4k in 25p
