  1. Try updating the firmware on the adapter and on the H1. You might also need to change the IS setting on the H1 to "continuous" as opposed to just "press only"
  2. You're not an old fossil. People have become accustomed to mediocrity. Composition, framing, and sequencing rarely exist. They've been supplemented by the "floaty" gimbal look. People are always chasing the next LUT, raw recording, but rarely "how do I improve" my work with intention. All of these tools are supposed to be chosen for a reason. Three medium-shots back to back in 120fps is not visually appealing. Great work still requires heavy rigs and heavy rigs mean: union sets, decent money, people being professionals, insurance, purpose, and making a living. The H1 is my vote for a great hybrid camera!
  3. It's a different beast these days. Sometimes, that C-camera is your main rig... Some packages are based off of iphone/snapchat/ig/cctv video that you drop on your timeline. That sometimes becomes the sole purpose for the package. When you're making deadline no one cares about your parfocal lens or steady shots. Larger markets don't even use sticks and do the pan to nowhere. Some days, I get tired of lugging the hotpod with the ENG cam, but I still do it. A c100 would be nice, but that b4 lens is amazing, with that doubler and macro. You can literally shoot anything. LOL I went with the H1 over the X-T3 because IBIS, better price, nicer grip. I picked up the package with the battery grip (which comes with two batteries) for $1,099 (open box). You won't get the two additional batteries with the X-T3 grip. I've also adapted the Sigma 18-35 with the Viltrox EF-FX1 adapter (really nice!).
  4. Lol... Master trolling!
  5. I'm still living that life (photog life)... 😮
  6. I don't think Dan gets it. Dan's current thoughts are incoherent. You need to make sense, create a plan, find your topic, and attack it. If you're gonna be so generic about your topic, no one cares. Why should anyone care about your generic ideas? The topic of activism is too general and no one needs to watch that. If you do your research and find something interesting, then you might have a shot. Find something that is occurring in your area. Are there a particular group or individuals in your community that are activists? Are there homeless veterans on the street who aren't getting enough services from the VA in your neighborhood? Is there a group of local veterans who are trying to help them out by feeding them or shelter them. Now you have a topic and a particular group to interview for a specific reason. You're shining a light into a problem that remains in the dark. You will need a thick skin because docs or journalism is a tough job. You're dealing with real folks (we're being really nice to you in comparison)
  7. I won't give out any names, but there was a recent cine lens summit in my area. All of those peeps are really nice and have lots of excellent info. That info was better than the free adult beverages they had on hand!
  8. This camera does exist and is already in the hands of some reputable camera stores in LA. I talked with one owner and they didn't reveal much except that it was a game changer and one of the best cameras that they had ever seen. I asked them "game changer? They said "yeah". They have it in their shop and are playing with it. Not to something to be taken lightly, especially with using the word game changer... Coming from Panny!!
  9. You need to find what you’re interested in and go from there.

    I was referring to buying an mp3 or ripping if off directly youtube, putting it on your editing timeline, manipulating it is a big hell nah. If you captured the audio while it was playing as use some bits and pieces, sure. You upload a 40 min non-stop take of a party. Might be fair game However, cutting a montage to Bruno Mars or any popular artist without purchasing the license is too much of a risk. It becomes a race to the bottom.

    Indeed it is terrifying at how good the camera phone can be when there is enough light. I was using my X-H1 with the mitakon .95 lens to do a portrait and also used the the iphone XS... Oh man, I was blown away at how close they could be. Hell, I was really sad and excited. Cellphone cameras have come a long way!!
