  1. Overall I do prefer HLG, but in this case I was mainly testing the GHalex LUT and it works better with F-log material in terms of skintone.
  2. More datarate per group of frame to minimise F-log blocking/banding.
  3. 120P is recorded in 200Mbps bitrate, conformed to 24P it's 40Mbps, for LongGOP it's an acceptable bitrate. The perceived softness comes from the readout modes, it's a hybrid of pixel-binning and line-skipping, so definitely won't be as detailed as 4K oversampling. But still, it's the most detailed, relatively artifacts-free FHD 120P out there.
  4. Shot a water sports festival with X-T3, hugely empowered by the enhanced face detection in the latest firmware, face select also came in handy when switching subject. F-log, HEVC 400Mbps LongGOP, sharpness and NR -4, custom WB. Graded with GHalex LUT, simple contrast/saturation adjustments A couple observations: 1. Face detection does not work at all with sunglasses, would be great if it could. 2. To get the purest colours from X-T3, custom WB is the way to go! Use a proper white/neutral grey card to set a custom WB to the key light.
  5. Neither OIS nor IBIS give you stable images while walking handheld. You'd need a gimbal for that. While linear mode helps, focus-by-wire lenses can't match true mechanical focusing lenses for manual focusing.
  6. GFX100 F-log sample (original file downloadable): ISO1600, 1/50, f/4 with sharpness and NR at default "0". Other than very noise blacks, image looks quite pleasing.
  7. X-Trans RGB X-Trans Bright 0.61um 1/2" mobile sensor and more
  8. I know lots of things that haven't been announced.
  9. 4:2:2 internal will be H.264. H.265 remains 10bit 4:2:0.
  10. Strictly speaking it's full range 0-1023. But Fuji encodes nothing between 0-95.
  11. The readout drive mode they use for 4K video actually derives 3884 x 2912 from the full width and height of the sensor, so it would be very easy to implement, it would also be perfect for 65mm anamorphic lenses.
  12. To be compatible with Cineon log workflow. Yes. But we are talking about efficient use of code values of encoding in-camera.
  13. Note that 4K on GFX100 has no supersampling, it's derived from weighted binning + some line-skipping from the full width of the sensor, using a 11bit lower precision ADC. In terms of pure image quality, it won't be as good as X-T3 4K, but you get the "MF" look.
  14. Samsung will present a 100MP 1/2" sensor at IISW 2019.
  15. The HDR mode is achieved using DOL-HDR, a feature seen on numerous Sony sensors including the ones in X-T3 and GFX100. Basically using 2 ADCs to generate 2 frames of different gain settings almost concurrently. However rolling shutter will double and max frame rate will be halved.
  16. They were edited in SDR. Then the digital source was/will be remastered in HDR.
  17. This is a known issue on some Macs and happens to GoPro HEVC files too, the crushed black/clipped highlights are a result of incorrectly decoding full range YUV as limited range YUV-RGB. This seems to only affect Macs with hardware accelerated HEVC decoding - Gen 6 and 7 Intel CPU.
  18. Apart from S1, GoT was not mastered in HDR.
  19. This is normal and happens in X-T1 and X-T2 as well. It occurs only when you tilt the camera back and forth, not side to side (from portrait to landscape). It's part of the viewfinder diopter mechanism. As long as the camera functions well, no need to be concerned. I knew you'd jump on that made in China BS. Isolated QC incidents can happen anywhere, so please put your stereotype away.
  20. Yes, but at 8K FF, you gotta look at it in totality.
  21. 1/2.3′′ 12MP CMOS Image Sensor – Sony IMX377 Ambarella H2 image processor FOV: 145° f2.8 Shutter: 1/8000-120s Video specifications: 4K60p with 8x slow motion, HDR and automatic time-lapse photography Shooting mode: single, AEB continuous shooting, countdown shooting, multiple continuous shooting, interval shooting
