    Is amazing. I love it. Never going back to RED unless I’m forced to by a client.
    Just thought I would share. The IQ is pristine, colors are great and it’s just a breeze to use. Will post a few stills here in a day or two.

    Mr. Freeze reacted to Andrew Reid in New forum Dark Theme   
    Forum news. You can now switch between dark and light theme.
    I prefer the dark one, especially on a bright modern high contrast IPS or OLED screen.
    Much easier on the eye and photos / videos really pop now on the darker backdrop.
    Enjoy!

    Mr. Freeze reacted to Neumann Films in Youtube 4K quality is so poor you might as well shoot 1080p   
    Follow up:
    I was extremely rude to what seems to be a really nice person in Matti...and I feel bad. I have nothing against him personally but I have some (obviously) strong thoughts about the type of content he uploads.
    More often than not I side with Andrew on this stuff. If you have built an audience and a name for yourself the LEAST you could do is be authentic and try something unique. To just pander and make 10 B-Roll videos with fake surprise face thumbnails is almost non sensical.
    It shows your sense of priorities. That you care more about fame/numbers/likes than you do anything artistic or creative. And that is a massive turn off.

    Guten Tag @Neumann Films 
    great to hear that your 12K URSA is on its way. I´m looking forward to the first samples.
    What I´ve already seen from BMD and John Brawley looked awesome. I just like the BM Color-Science and BRAW aswell. Back then it was CDNG and ProRes with the BMCC and the original Pocket, ahead of Canon here. Now it is the great Codec in combination with an enormous amout of recording-modes and really high-res formats.

    Yeah, I´d say for me clickbait can be something that promises to be XY and the only delivering a small percentage of that or even nothing at all.
    If something is marketed in a grand way and then delivering on it, I wouldn´t call it clickbait.

    Mr. Freeze got a reaction from tweak in Every camera launch day on YouTube   
    I try to exclude those channels from my youtube-account the best I can. 
    The titles and clickbait is one thing, but the studid shocked-faces is something I can´t stand. Even if something would be of interest for me, I won´t watch it once some of those factors come into play. 
    Basically, as long as users/consumers continue to watch content without reflecting on it, its producer(s) and what its goal is, this stuff will continue to be made. Sure, some of the channels are pure marketing/advertisements and there is nothing wrong with it (as long as it is presented for what it really is), but pseudo-objective unboxings, sponsorings etc. is bothering me. 
    I do watch a lot on youtube, from different genres. From music to camera-equipment, movie-stuff and diy-videos. But a lot of them I will not watch because of certain rules I set for myself.

    Those Rokinons/Samyangs/Walimex Lenses are great, especially for the money and when bought second hand.
    Sure, they have their weaknesses, being softer wide open, manual focus only, not similar in size etc, but I like the images a lot. 
    I´d say the´re really usable at f2 but great at f2.8

    I have been fully in Panasonic's camp since my journey began. Never in my life have a seen a Mike Drop from a corporation  so damn brutal in all of my years.
    But I have one more question. Where do they get these black people with all the gorgeous chocolaty skin from? My skin has never looked that damn good, and I've been black all of my life! LOL If this is BMD putting their best foot forward for inclusion, they certainly did it with class.

    Mr. Freeze reacted to Andrew Reid in Andrew Reid AMA   
    @Neumann Films a Reddit style AMA is a great idea for the forum. I'll do my best to answer what you guys asked above. We should do this with you Neumann some time too, and some camera companies. I have some interviews coming up on the blog. Sigma's CEO Kazuto Yamaki and the Sigma Fp product manager got a book-length of questions from me and are very kindly working on some answers! Fujifilm also in Japan. I think the camera companies are always shrouded in mystery so the more they talk to their users, the better. We can send our suggestions their way!
    @Neumann Films
    What art form interests you the most outside of film? Also...what is your favorite CURRENT local restaurant (no chains)?
    Music. I like how you can choose to be a solo artist or be in a group. Filmmakers don't quite have the same luxury if we want to make really good stuff 🙂 We need actors, writers, at the very least an interesting model or subject to shoot. Musicians just pick up an instrument, and write music.
    Also writing, I think that's fascinating as well. Whether it be fiction or writing down ideas, I think filmmakers who can do this well have a real advantage over the pack.
    Favourite restaurant in Berlin is the Japanese BBQ "Ushido" and back home in the UK there's a great one in Manchester with a cocktail bar, called "Room".
    @Itu
    did you attend any film school? Which one?
    Not really but went to university and made artistic video pieces, music videos and some short films (in the Mini DV era)!
    @Video Hummus
    having run EOSHD solo for so many years where you have routinely written about your frustrations over and over again about the same persistence and repeated short comings of every brands cameras, would you consider yourself a masochist? If not, what kind of mental health problem would you say you have?
    Addicted to buying new cameras. It is interesting to follow the flow of technology and innovation but with the camera industry being so dominated by the Japanese, I feel it could benefit from more multi-cultural ideas and designers. It's becoming a bit like the Japanese car industry where all the different models are homogeneous.
    Well done to Sigma for trying something different with the Fp!
    @Mr. Freeze
    1. What moment/film was your motivation to pick up a Camera to create films?
    Koyaanisqatsi.
    Never seen reality in such poetic form, and the synthesis with the Philip Glass score, just amazing. But what's inspiring is it's basically one cinematographer and a camera, long, long takes. Each one hypnotic. No actors, no big crew, no writers, just the music and images.
    Hitchcock, now there is an inspiration too.
    2. Being able to travel back in time, let´s say 1920-2000, what decade/year would you like to visit and film in?
    I think late 70's, early 80's. The auteur era in the US. And 60's France.
    I've heard many of the younger pros say Jurassic Park is the "classic" that inspired them to be a filmmaker. It's great fun, but popcorn fluff... How times, and people are changing.

    It is not a bad idea to recommend going out and shooting more with the BMPCC4K, perhaps @boukmanmutt can fall in love again with the BMPCC4K? 

    If so, then would it be such a crazy idea to own *two* cameras?? Could then pick up a compact GX850 for just a hundred bucks (or at least, sub $200) to handle the stills needs. (and a little bit of casual shooting too) And the lenses can easily be shared between both the P4K and the Panasonic.

    Could be another option for you.
    Take the Pocket 4K this weekend and make a short film with it. Do ergonimics, workflow, operation etc. hinder you to achieve the shots you want, and if so, would another camera be better in these areas?
    What kind of videos are you filming most of the time? Narrative, documentary, Fashion, Musicvideos, Family-Clips?

    Mr. Freeze reacted to Andrew Reid in Sony PMW-F3 with 2500 hours on it. Should I buy it?   
    I think you're a consumerist idiot.
    Genuinely - if you don't want hyped prices... why cut and paste a YouTube hype piece about it all over Internet forums.
    And then say "NOOOOOOOO"
    What are you? a 12 years old?
    This shill likely trawls this forum for content ideas - This thread being one. Which is why you see his F3 hype piece and smirky expression.
    Where do you think he genuinely got the idea for buying an F3 from?
    Do you really think he has a single original idea of his own?
    Youtube - the gold standard for scientific research 😂
    And his stuff is that boring too, I can't get past the first 15 seconds

    Mr. Freeze got a reaction from PannySVHS in Blackmagic Pocket 4K battery grip   
    Yeah, that´s what I heard. As long as the camera was able to record DCNG when shipped, you can downgrade the firmware.
    I have one of the first models, so it was still capable of recording in CDNG but I´m fine with giving it up for BRAW and all the new modes. I really like the 2:35 4k Mode, even though I rarely use the 75fps mode, it´s a great mode to have. 
    Btw. Frank Glencain did a comparison between CDNG and BRAW: https://frankglencairn.wordpress.com/2019/03/07/no-more-cdng-on-blackmagic-cameras-and-why-it-doesnt-mater-at-all/

    Mr. Freeze got a reaction from bjohn in Low light   
    Depends, I guess.
    Do you want to film in the dark, or simply have scenes with less bright lights?
    As long as you can control the lightsources the way you want, you don´t necessarily need a A7Sii.
    I myself use Blackmagic-Cameras ever since the first pocket camera was released. The Pocket 4k/6k for examp offer great lowlight capabilities.
    But Panasonic, Fuji and Canon offer great ISO-performance too. 
    Maybe take a look at some out-of-camera-Samples and see, whether the codec, format and colorscience is what you´re looking for.

    I have this same lens (it's based on an AngĂŠnieux design) and the same camera. It's great!
    Here are a couple of examples; this is on my original Pocket Cinema Camera, not the Micro, as it's faster to set up (no external monitor required as long as it's not too bright outside). Using a Metabones speedbooster, Nikon version as I also have the Nikon version of this lens (so I could have manual aperture control).
    and
    As a contrast, here's some footage of the geese taken with a Helios 44-2; I don't use a speedbooster with that lens so it becomes a telephoto on the Pocket or Micro:
