  1. I have a R6 as a 'b-cam' with autofocus, but it has a lot of weird quirks. 4k25 has horrible unusable rolling shutter. However 4k50 doesn't but overheats like crazy. 1080p (which would be fine for me) on full frame has aliasing. I haven't really inspected the crop modes yet but it probably has something weird going on as well, haha.
  2. I can't believe Nikon entered the digital cinema camera line in the 1960s and has been steadily improving and expanding upon it ever since. Incredible.
  3. A clicking drive is always awful as far as I know.
  4. Thanks for the advice guys! Regarding the R, I thought about that, but I need at least a 10-bit camera if I am going to match it with my Pocket, I had an 8-bit camera (a7r II) and there's just no proper matching to be done on a cam like that in my opinion; skin tones especially go super waxy.
  5. Alright folks I really need some buying advice ... I’m a videographer that does 90% commercial video, 10% photography. I’m filming on a Pocket 4K which I’m EXTREMELY happy with and am looking for a second camera. I’ve just sold my A7rii and now am doubting heavily between a Pocket 6K pro and a Canon r6. I own all Canon ef lenses by the way. These two cameras are roughly the same price in my country. The choice in my head is: Pocket for image quality, internal nds, way better screen, just an all around much better video camera. I’d rent or borrow a photo camera on the rare occasi
  6. So I’m bumping this thread because I’ve been offered a very good deal on a Nanlite 300. My other lights are 120ds (1 and 2) and I am just wondering if the lights mix tint wise. I’m a bit worried about, let’s say, purple fill lights because of different tints.
  7. Dude, that's amazing! Almost made me tear up! Such a great camera still

    A7rii in 2021

    I have one, planning on selling it only because I have so many EF lenses and only are getting further into that ecosystem (being primarily an ef-mount videographer), and the AF with an adapter is getting a bit long in the tooth. I think I'll go for an R6 to get a good camera with video-capable autofocus, but that's really only because of my lens situation. The image quality of the A7R II is still amazing, almost best in class, which really says something!
  9. To be clear Blackmagic vehemently denies the above statement and says that any noise/detail differences are due to the different debayering.
  10. The a6300 is a good example of exactly the point he’s trying to make, the distinction between resolution and fidelity. I had a shoot with a Sony a7sii and an Ursa back to back. The Ursa was shot in 1920x1080 prores 444, the a7sii shot UHD in mega compressed h264. The difference in PERCEIVED resolution between these two cameras is night and day, with the Ursa kicking the A7s it’s butt, because the image of the former is so much more robust in terms of compression noise, color accuracy, banding, edge detail, and so on. One is more resolute but the other camera has a lot more perceived resolution
  11. @Beritar the OP stated they're using a Pocket 4k, which does have a native DCI 4k sensor, so your remark is not really relevant to them (just to avoid any confusion ahead of time).
  12. Yeah, Sigma Art lenses 100%. Which I really like. The few modern Zeiss lenses I've used definitely qualify as well.
  13. That's right UncleBob. As to your premise, Kye, I think it is simply not true. The Ursa 4.6k G2 uses a Fairchild sensor, yet it matches almost perfectly with the Pocket 4k, which uses a Sony one. Like previously stated, Sony produces the sensors in an insane amount of photography-oriented cameras yet these cameras produce different images, sometimes wildly so.
  14. Jesus Christ can people stop invoking Orwell whenever someone on the internet disagrees with them. My God, how serious do you have to take yourself to even consider doing that. Not everything is part of some epic clash of civilizations (looking at Andrews piece as well). If you'd actually look around you as opposed to just screaming about whatever you have predetermined reality to be, you'd see that the overwhelming majority of people all across the political spectrum do not think Wonder Woman 1984 is a good movie. In that sense you guys should be thrilled, because it actually should relieve s
