  1. 1000nit is barely enough and can still be difficult to see when the sun is hitting the screen directly, use a high quality deep sunhood. Swit will release a 3000nit 7inch model CM-S75C that's about $450.
  2. Yes, doesn't matter for post-production. We use HLG as an alternative log profile. BT.2020 matrix coefficients tag is required for HDR playback, or on-the-fly conversion for SDR playback. This is why in Scratch, X-T3 HLG files are default blown-out (on an SDR display) because Scratch respects the tags. If we change the decoding parameter to BT.709 SDR, the images return to the flat look as seen on camera. Premiere ignores the tags and decodes everything in BT.709, so HLG files have that flat look ready for grading.
  3. These issues you are describing are hard to grasp without any visuals or actual samples.
  4. In Resolve, data/video level is arbitrary really, it's easily selectable in "Levels" clip setting. There's no need to use a LUT for that. Also it's not really a problem for external ProRes for HLG to contain all BT.709 tags. HLG/BT.2020 tags are required for instant HDR playback on end user devices, or for automatic HDR to SDR conversion. Doesn't matter for post-production. Alexa Log-C ProRes carry all BT.709 tags as well, ARRI has to put additional metadata field to say it's Log C.
  5. The Swit can be powered directly from a compatible power bank via micro USB (minimum 2A current, 5V voltage). There's no internal battery.
  6. Smallrig is making a purpose-built holder for power banks: https://www.smallrig.com/smallrig-holder-for-portable-power-banks-bub2336.html If you replace your monitor with Swit CM-55C, you can power it via micro USB.
  7. Replace the fluorescent bulb with either Halogen or high CRI LED ones that are dimmable. Even the highest quality fluorescent lights have spiky and discontinuous spectrum. And most importantly they are not dimmable. When illuminating faces, light quality in terms of smooth and continuous spectrum is the key.
  8. Nothing of concern here. Premiere does that to Alexa Log C footage as well, it automatically applies a BT.709 LUT. It's just now started doing it to HLG footage. Can be easily disabled with two clicks.
  9. It's the automatic HLG to SDR conversion triggered by metadata. Right click the clip(s), "Disable Masterclip Effect"
  10. Controlling camera parameters and most importantly, pulling focus on Fuji native lenses via USB, require some complicated "reverse engineering". Interestingly, a Timelapse tool VIEW did it a few months ago: https://www.newsshooter.com/2018/12/24/timelapse-view-intervalometer-is-now-compatible-with-fujifilm-x-series-cameras/ It allows full control over most Fuji X cameras.
  11. DJI "officially announced" in a forum post by staff account that Ronin S will support X-T3 via a future firmware update. Regarding X-T2 and X-H1, they are "not sure". https://forum.dji.com/thread-151303-2-1.html
  12. @Attila Bakos Fujifilm Tokyo has responded to the use of BT.601 tag in internally recorded files: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  13. 1. Signal format displays 59.94 instead of 60. 2. Default color temperature changed to “Native” 3. Signal format display and battery info display can be individually turned on/off. 4. User LUT supports 33x33x33 format upload 5. Add “Saturation” adjustment in calibration menu. 6. Fixed other bugs. Tool: SD card, FAT32
  14. It has many lower resolution versions - within itself, by binning (2x2, 3x3, 4x4, 6x6)
  15. Let's all marvel at this particular piece of cutting edge engineering. It's the one sensor to rule them all. There's 8K 30P, 6K 60P, 4K 90P, 3K 120P, 2K 240P. Ultra high sensitivity RGB binning mode is available for 4K up to 60P and 2K up to 180P. 16bit ADC readout is available for video framerates for the first time.
  16. @BrunoCH New firmware for CM-55C released. Copy these two files to the root directory in a FAT32 formatted SD card, turn on unit and follow instructions. JTH5501_UN108v01.bin JTH5500_UN108v01.bin
  17. No, the lithography node (300nm, 90nm) refers to ADC circuitry, it has nothing to do with the photodiode and does not affect photosensitive area no matter how big or small the number is. It's the reason why Sony has achieved 16bit ADC on recent generation sensors. The datasheet actually tells you how much DR it has. Using the formula 20/6 x Log10(FWC/RMS) We can calculate that at ISO100 it has a pixel-level EDR of 12EV.
  18. For a 36x24mm FF sensor, 300nm vs 90nm process really make very little if any difference to image quality. There are more important contributors. CMOS sensors are not CPU, there's no constant need to shrink the die.
  19. This 63MP FF sensor from Canon (35MM63MXSCD, FSI with 300nm process) is a response to Sony's 61MP IMX455 (BSI & DTI with 90nm process), which recently entered mass production and will be sold to Nikon and Pentax.
  20. DJI Mavic 2 Zoom: D-Cinelike profile -> GH5 Cine-D PRE -> GHa Daylight Linear -> Contrast adjustments
  21. Crane 2 has its own focus motor, while Crane 3 Lab/Weebill Lab have their own motors for both focus and zoom, at the same time.
  22. Zhiyun Weebill Lab/Crane 3 Lab support it, by providing two motors for zoom and focus control.
  23. Tilta is showing a cage designed for X-T3 (the one on the right).
