  1. Monopods work pretty well or a shoulder rig. If you are just getting quick shots, which is pretty much what IBIS is useful for, stabilized lenses pretty much accomplish the same thing.
  2. Its gonna yield similar image quality to a A73 and Nikon Z7. Full frame frame 6k downsampled
  3. I don't really think its necessary. 1.4 is very fast on full frame especially since you can crank the iso up pretty high.
  4. I like my Fuji XT3 a lot and will be sticking to it. When I spend $2500 on a camera it'll be for a used Ursa Mini or something. That said its a nice piece of gear, especially when it gets the Vlog and 10 bit update.
  5. Lots of people complain about the GH5 and GH5S colors as well though🤣 The FS5 is really tempting to me. With the atomos recorders it can do 12 bit prores RAW now up to 120fps. The FS700 is really nice too although I like the FS5 form factor.
  6. I didn't quite realize how small Prores RAW files can be. I think being able to do 12bit 4k on a full frame camera is really amazing. Just realized the Prores RAW also works with the old FS5, which are going for like $2000ish on ebay. Those can do up to 4k 120 in Prores RAW😮
  7. Is camera A the GH5? The Sony cinema cameras are really interesting for the price some can be had at. Everyone always complains about Sony color so its a hard sell for me.
  8. I didn't quite understand it but it made sense without thinking about it. If that makes any sense? Really good piece, going to share with some friends.
  9. I haven't used the Pocket 4k only the OG pocket. With Highlight recovery in resolve it gets more dynamic range.
  10. Ah ok, well nothing wrong with that. Also sorry to accuse you of that, didn't really have the info to say that.
  11. If you don't need auto focus, a speedbooster is a cheap easy fix to the crop issue. Although I am not sure why a 1.8 crop is a big issue in the first place. I'd imagine its noisy if you come from the DSLR full frame world. If you are used to shooting with cinema cameras or M43 I doubt it though. The big dynamic range advantage seems to be when shooting in RAW, especially CDNG. There seems to be a lot of highlight information that something like the GH5 doesn't have.
  12. The issue is you sold that video to a client and used music that isn't your own. Which I am sure probably breaks some law.
  13. I'll use copyrighted songs that were playing during the reception as I think its part of the documenting and capturing the feel of the event. Wouldn't use it to promote what I do though.
  14. pretty cool, though impractical for run and gun if you need to change it out.
  15. The GH5S sensor was nice tbh, I have no need of 8k. Its capable of 4k 120p at least according to what Z cam did with it. But I guess higher res is the future.
  16. There excuse was that its a stills camera, even though that doesn't even completely convince me. They should have no excuse with the GH line. I think the GH6 will have to be something really incredible. (6k 24 fps and 4k up to 120fps) with IBIS, and hopefully a new auto focus system, though I somehow doubt it. Maybe they'll put in a non handicapped Vlog as well.
  17. Definitely depends. I know a company that hires like 4-5 shooters for weddings just to look more "big scale". Decided not to work with them as I think they are full of BS lol
  18. On the flip side some couples want to see the big cameras, as they associate that with high end. I think it will be a while before that changes. Even now most people have no idea what or why cinema cameras are expensive and used professionally or how they compare to a cell phone camera.
  19. Art is a fine balance of technical skills and pure imagination. I would have taken this film as the work of a seasoned artist. In other words, very nice work! I had thought the grain was intentional. Just shared on my facebook.
  20. Scary stuff guys. I think if they stuck with a 4k sensor rather than pushing the whole 6k 8k thing, they could pull off 10 bit. Heck I'd be happy with a 4k sensor with 1080p only output like the OG A7S. I really don't care much about resolution.
  21. I saw some guy make use of the high ISO's on the A7SII for a wedding. Forget how high it was but he was shooting a beach wedding that was solely lit by torches. He got exposure right but the torches were blown out and you couldn't even tell they were torches. I do like the A7SII though, I wish they'd make a newer version that is basically 100% the same just with 10 bit capabilities and higher frame rates. Being able to shoot high ISO's clean is really useful for high speed shooting, especially 120fps.
  22. Of the jobs on set I hate being the boom OP the most. Its difficult and tiring tbh.
  23. I am pretty confident saying 25,000 iso is more than enough for any situation I shoot in. Realistically 3200 iso is as I pretty much light everything. Highlights blowing out is the issue I run into most often. That's why I value dynamic range a lot more than anything else.
