  1. Did some pro/cons for myself after watching some video's as I'm thinking of getting the R7 for photo/video combo. Pro: - 32 MP sensor and good low light for an APS-C - Dual SD (backup recording also for video), R3 level autofocus - Multi-function Hotshoe (Tascam CA-XLR2d, etc) - Canon/Viltrox speedbooster (0,71x) & VND adapter works Cons: - No ALL-I, but only IPB / IPB-light - No battery grip possible (as body is smaller then 2 batteries) - Only 2 control wheels, not 3 like R5/R6, no top LCD - Build quality / weather sealing not like 7D-series, more like XXD-series
  2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agTLsPoIYis The low light performance looks really nice 😎
  3. Indeed, you can forget any continues autofocus for video in challenging conditions (low light, backlit, etc). The main reason I'm not investing into the GH6 or S1/S5 at the moment. Already enough MFT glass that might become worthless if Panasonic doesn't get their AF shit together in the next camera releases. With the upcoming R7 now, they may loose whatever advantage they still had.
  4. Indeed, still waiting for that G2 BMPCC4K...
  5. Nice, let's call it OBIS (Out-body image stabilization) 😎
  6. I got the Meike EF-RF ND adapter (Meike MK-EFTR-C) which costs €159 / $159. Got some cheap manual Chinese EF primes (35mm f2, 50mm f1.4, 85mm f1.8) for about €100 a piece that were super easy to declick.
  7. So if I understand correctly, you can still do 8-bit 4:2:0 using h.264 in all modes except when you enable C-Log 3 or HDR-PQ. While it is nice to have 10-bit 4:2:2 using h.265, will definitely need a new laptop/desktop with hardware support before I'll be using it.
  8. The build quality will indeed be a downgrade when you compare Canon mirrorless to DSLR. While not as bad as Sony, Panasonic has certainly a better and more quality feel. Somehow all Canon mirrorless feel like Rebel series now 😆
  9. Actually the R7 4k crop mode has an advantage, the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 would become a ff eq. 28-100mm lens 😎
  10. The only thing I'm afraid of is low noise performance in any mode except the fine 4k (that has potential overheating). Since line skipping or crop mode will effectively only use a 2,9x 'crop portion' of the sensor (line skipping doesn't have a crop, but only uses as much lines as the crop mode does). So in that regard the low noise of M43 2x crop might even be better than the R7 modes that have a 2,9x crop.
  11. And Viltrox already has a speedbooster for it to use your fullframe EF lenses (originally designed for the crop R and C70)
  12. Same here, also got a used 5D4, but will be reselling it. Just to expensive to keep for the limited work I do at the moment. And the 5D3 is indeed good enough for still with fast glass when not pushing the exposure too much.
  13. And those 5D Mark III become dirt cheap now. Just bought myself a 5D3 with 300k clicks and some battery/memory cards for just €200 😎
  14. Indeed, if you compare the 7DII build quality against the R7, it looks (and probably feels) like a toy. Wonder if it will even will survive though use like the 7DII did. I'm afraid this is the best we will see from Canon (in crop body anyway). Feel the same about the 5D series. While the R5 / R6 are specs wise a serious upgrade, these cameras will not survive the though conditions and 'misuse' people put their DSLR counterparts through.
  15. Saw the Jared Polin preview and he said the R7 didn't overheat on a hot (demo) day shooting video all day and there is no time limit on recording 😎 Also looks to have dual sd card recording for video and C.LOG3.
  16. The R7 combined with the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 and Variable ND EF to RF Adapter could potentially be a killer combo 😎 Of course the big question is, how soon will it overheat and recover.
  17. Maybe it's better to buy a second hand GH5 II now and wait till this camera is mature. Guess that will still take some years...
  18. Also still searching for one. Unfortunately no good deal to be found (or for any video camera that matter).
  19. Just got a broken Nikon ED AF-S Nikkor 28-70mm f2.8 D for €99 (The Bourne Lens) that was easy repair 😎
  20. Waiting for the upcoming Mini 3 😎
  21. Maybe stupid question, but what if you use a cheap (uncoated) UV filter on the lens instead? Will this not give flares without ruining your lens?
  22. If you already own a workhorse 5D IV and need a second one for like doing a wedding (backup or second shooter), it makes sense to rent the same as you have.
  23. I'm thinking DFD++ 😋 Somehow Panasonic won't or can't implement PDAF. But if they somehow do, I can buy a cheap S1/S5 real soon 😎
  24. I'm in no way saying DFD is bad since I'm really impressed by the G9 2.0 update. For photography I even like it better then the competition (that has PDAF) and for video with C-AF in good light it's also great. Somehow people like bashing Panasonic for it's lack of PDAF, yet accept the crappy almost non existing AF from blackmagic. And you hear lots of rumors about new AF systems for the GH6, while I just thing it will have an (even more) improved version of DFD.
  25. Personally I think it will just have DFD and everyone will be disappointed 😄
