  1. A6500's only strength compared to X-T3 is IBIS. With F-Log, due to its placement of middle grey at much higher 46IRE, you don't need to and should not overexpose at all.
  2. V2.10 is literally just the removal of 4GB file size limit and fix of slight defects. V3 is planned for Q2 2019.
  3. 10bit 4:2:2 will likely still be H.264, because ARM processors that support HEVC Version 2 Main 422 10 profile were only introduced recently. That should be why the EVA1 V3 firmware update limits HEVC codec to 10bit 4:2:0, same for X-T3.
  4. 4GB file size limit firmware for X-T3 will be released on Feb 7. http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/software/firmware/x/xt3/index.html
  5. Primer LUT for Sony works quite well, I'd say very close to Alexa. http://omeneo.com/primers/sony/#
  6. I'm beginning to think this issue could be linked to the magenta banding issue as well. X-T3 F-log and film sim files (both H.264/H.265) still have BT.709/601/601 tags. HLG mode however has full BT.2020/HLG/BT.2020 tags. This could affect how the files are decoded.
  7. What was your solution in the end?
  8. @Attila Bakos This video seems to highlight the colour shift issue you mentioned on liftgammagain forum.
  9. Global shutter sensors for digital stills cameras are not planned before 2020, it'll be Gen 6/7 architecture. FYI currently it's mostly Gen 3/4 (IMX310, IMX410 etc).
  10. The real use of handheld hi-res mode is for ultra clean images. With its 16-frame averaging, you gain around 4 stops of SNR. So for that palm tree shot, the noise level would be equivalent of shooting at ISO13. And I'm sure the averaging algorithm can be improved for better detail retention.
  11. A6400 has a base ISO of 500 in Slog2/3, this points to a refresh in conversion gain design. A CMOS sensor can be considered as having two layers - analog (photosites) and digital (ADC and readout circuitry). In this case A6400 kept the analog layer unchanged, but refreshed it with 20nm lithography and redesigned the digital layer.
  12. It's the best non-high brightness monitor out there. Period.
  13. So explain to me how 6K full pixels are readout? It's literally one ADC scanning line by line. IMX293 info has not been made public yet, Google can't tell you anything.
  14. E2's other party tricks: internal ProRes, anamorphic mode, Zlog2 with 14bit readout for even lower noise floor.
  15. Sony never use multiple column parallel ADCs for video, only for stills. It's always single ADC for video mode readout, hence the rolling shutter. A9 is a prime example.
  16. They upgraded the sensor to IMX293 with 20nm lithography and new readout circuitry, only the analog photosites remain unchanged.
  17. You can use LUTCalc to generate 17^3 LUT sets with exposure compensation directly. Or Photoshop CC can downconvert LUTs to various resolution.
  18. Looks like RF-E is being considered after all.
  19. 17^3 precision is more than enough for monitoring. The ones that support higher precision all downconvert to 17^3 internally.
  20. RF 28-70 f/2 and Z6 with ProRes RAW would be a divine combo.
  21. Techart Active with electronic contacts, so AF works. Z mount flange is 16mm, E mount is 18mm, X mount is 17.7mm. Maybe they can shave off 0.3mm.
