  1. It's been discussed a few times before. The HLG flag in ProRes file automatically triggers Premiere Pro CC to apply an HDR to SDR conversion.
  2. DJI has released a control cable for Ronin SC that allows the gimbal to trigger video record and autofocus on compatible Fujifilm cameras: https://store.dji.com/product/ronin-sc-rss-control-cable-for-fujifilm
  3. Good DR and highlight roll off, but the saturation roll off is the biggest giveaway of the video look (grass/leaves outside the window in sunlight remains intense green).
  4. New firmware announcement on 20th September during Fujifilm X Summit in Shibuya, Tokyo.

    Fujifilm X-A7

    https://www.fujifilm.com/news/n190912_01.html Notable features: New 24MP Bayer sensor, IMX271: https://www.sony-semicon.co.jp/products_en/IS/sensor2/img/products/IMX271AQR_Flyer.pdf 4K 30P supersampled from 6K. 3.5" 1280 x 720 1000nit fully articulated touch screen. Full sensor high speed phase-detection AF, faster and more precise than X-T3/X-T30! There will be firmware updates for X-T3/X-T30 to further refine their AF algorithm, among other features and fixes.
  6. There will be a major feature update to follow, be patient ?
  7. From this Irish based distributor website: https://www.ebdn-partners.eu/
  8. You are talking about encoding bitdepth, 8bit H.264, 10bit ProRes etc. Sensor ADC readout precision dictates the upper limit of the total DR the sensor can output. Do you know what ADC is? It's absolutely linear. 12bit ADC theoretically offers 12 stops maximum DR, and BMPC6K does 11.8 in lab test. 10bit ADC = max 10 stops, as demonstrated by the noisy shadows in ZCAM E2 4K 120p footage. Alexa uses dual 14bit ADCs, it's one of the reasons why it's capable of 14 stops of DR (then stored logarithmically in 10bit ProRes) Most stills cameras use 14bit ADC for stills and that's why A7 III achieves 13.9 stops DR in stills mode. Of course the raw stream can be denoised to extend the DR below neutral grey, but in its raw state, ADC precision dictates the max DR a sensor is capable of.
  9. Ha, I've explained many times, current commercial CMOS sensors behave linearly, and linear 12bit = 12EV = 12 stops of DR. Yes you can store unlimited DR in 8bit, that's called logarithmic encoding.
  10. 15 stops DR? With current Sony sensors, 12bit ADC readout maxes out at 12 stops of DR. With the Dual Gain HDR, it's a Digital Overlap Drive with double rolling shutter and half the framerates. Not very practical for cinematic work. But Fujifilm has already kind of implemented this DOL drive in X-T3/30 and GFX100, with the shutter speed slower than frame rate feature.
  11. If you visit this link: https://www.sony.com/electronics/interchangeable-lens-cameras/ilce-7sm2 and change the last bit of the URL "ilce-7sm2" to "ilce-7sm3", it redirects to a specific page. But it you change it to anything else, including "ilce-7sm4", it just displays a generic 404 page. Suggesting that "ilce-7sm3" URL is already reserved.
  12. New firmware announcement around IBC as well ?
  13. Expect a relevant announcement at IBC later this month. Readout speed is believed to be ultra fast at < 12ms.
  14. 4K pixel to pixel has a bit more noise than supersampled 4K from 6K. A bit softer as well with some moire/aliasing. S1H is even more soft but with reduced moire/aliasing due to the addition of an OLPF.
  15. 4K pixel to pixel/S35 goes up to 60P and has a bit less rolling shutter (16ms vs 21ms).
  16. On S1 and S1H, 4K pixel to pixel readout is the same as S35 mode, it's a 1.5x crop.
  17. There are quite a few large format anamorphic lenses for Alexa 65 that fit GFX. It’s a new cam because it’s a GFX with X-Trans IV CFA.
  18. Would be great to implement a 3 x 3 colour aware binning on X-T3 for 2080 x 1386 RGB, but I think it’s unlikely because colour aware ADC is introduced in 3.76um gen 2 sensors (IMX461XTK)
  19. It’s an anamorphic mode. And due to a 3x3 colour aware binning, it’s completely free of moire/aliasing, also with drastically increased sensitivity. Kinda similar to those 48mp > 12mp smartphone sensors but much much more advanced.
  20. As you may be aware, Fujifilm has registered three new cameras: FF190001 FF190002 – X-Pro3 FF190003 One of them is a 44 x 33 large format video centric camera with 4K x 3K RGB output.
