  1. I have been messing around with mine today too and have been really enjoying it. The feel in the hand is superb, very ergonomic and access to NDs in body is bloody revelatory. The weight is really nice, it feels more solid than my 4k. The screen is really useable even in bright light, colour tint on screen seems ok too. No major colour shift noticed in the footage with ND up to the full 6 stops though no scientific testing done. All in all I am really happy with it. I put on the Canon 24mm f2.8 is lens, stuck in a Cfast and was able to fit it into a small shoulder bag and h
  2. My screen looks really nice, no obvious blue tint. Got mine from CVP yesterday.
  3. Thank you Paul, I found them and ordered 6 which should do for a good days filming.
  4. Hi Paul, can I ask where you found the 3500mah Patina batteries. Hoping to get my unit from CVP in the next week. Thanks.
  5. It looks like the price is $750 dollars per lens (from a comment on the Facebook group).
  6. On the other side of the coin I just sold my mac after seven years of hard use producing paid for video content solely in FCPX. I got back nearly half of the initial cost and it's made me good money along the way. I have replaced it with another one.
  7. I have just done the same. Have been using the same decent spec imac for the last 6 years and been happy with it but since h265 arrived I have been generating a lot of proxies! I only use FCPX and Lightroom so hoping for big performance gains. Bit weird to think of a Mac Mini as an upgrade.

    Yes, lots to the UK. Have had one problem with a lens which I sent back and got a replacement - this made me feel vulnerable as hell but they came good and all was well in the end. Definitely not the usual brick and motor experience but the savings are worth it IMO.
  9. Could be showing stills sequence shot at 20fps as per the commentary which might accentuate the warping?
  10. For me film is plain fun and I shoot all my personal photography on 35mm and medium format cameras. It helps to separate my day to day work stuff (product photography amongst other things) from my passion. There’s a lot to learn and a lot of experimentation which I enjoy. I like the results more than digital for family stuff, I spend less time in front of a computer and I love feel of the cameras. I like the delayed gratification of the development process and the anticipation of seeing the results. You can pick up a canon SLR for £10 and a roll of B&W for £5, lab development costs i
  11. Does anyone know if you can record video in all internally recorded resolutions and frame rates to SD card?
  12. Just in addition to that the unit is in very good condition and is running the latest firmware. 




  13. Hello Ty,

    Sorry for the cold contact but I have recently acquired a Marantz PMD 661 recorder and noticed you use one through reading post on here.

    I have a concern with mine and wondered if you could let me know if this behaviour is normal or not.

    When powering up for the first time in a session it can sometimes take up to 20 seconds for the display to fire up. If I turn it off and then on again soon after this time is reduced to around 5 seconds. This is the same with AC or battery power (fresh batteries).

    Does this sound in line with your experiences?

    Many thanks,





  14. Hi Andrew, I wondered if you were still using your SL for video and if you still felt the video aspect of it was worthwhile. I am using Sony’s for work (FS7 & A7iii) but fancy something different for personal projects. I have Leica lenses already so sorted on that front, I have handled one an thought it very intuitive I am just hesitating in regards to the usability of the video in everyday scenes. Many thanks, Ben
