  1. Manual is out: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/3/0300038273/01/eos1dx-mk3-ug_en.pdf Fingers crossed the R6 will have the same video spec, but knowing Canon: probably not.
  2. In a bag it should never be an issue. A USB-A powerbank does the intentional trick good enough. I carry a spare usb cable and spare AAs just to be on the safe side. What I don't like about the Sony NP-F battery sled option is it won't fit in a bag, unless you get the hirose sled and hook that up to an external Sony sled, which would cost quite a bit more than a usb powerbank. I paid about $60 for mine, and it came with free jump start leads for the car.
  3. I'm using a USB powerbank with my MixPre 6. It's in an old (perfect fit) portabrace bag with a right angle usb-c cable attached. I can't see how it could get disconnected, but if it did the Mixpre6 automatically switches back to the AAs. I could gaff the right angle usb-c cable in place, but haven't felt the need to. It's a smaller USB-A powerbank, so only operates in low power mode: 1-2 48v phantom powered mics.
  4. Love the super taks, my second favorite lenses after the Leica-r. Were you using pro-mist filters too?
  5. It's 1080p lineskipped up to 60fps, just like regular liveview. If you wanna shoot higher res than 1080p, then it's lower frame rate and not always centred, and can be greyscale. I don't usually shoot higher res than 1080p because the rolling shutter is worse at higher resolutions, and I'm content with the IQ of the 4K upscaling and a touch of sharpening.
  6. Yeah the 5D MK3 is way better than the EOSM and 50D in every respect, IQ, DR, high ISO, and yes preview is real-time with proper framing, just like regular liveview only with a lot more display options. Magic Lantern has the same dynamic range as 14bit raw photo mode: 11.7 stops @ 100 ISO. It's a filmic grade, so the blacks are somewhat crushed. I'm not a big fan of low contrast or HDR type looks unless it's a creative decision driven by a particular narrative. I have a Pocket 4K too, but I still like the look of the 5D MK3, the color science, cadence, and highlight rolloff are very good. About the only things I don't like about the 5D are its high ISO performance, fixed pattern noise, and limited dynamic range. It looks great upscaled to 4K. I always use a promist filter on the Pocket 4K, it looks too digital without out. My gut feeling is: I should wait for a 3rd party OLPF before I take the plunge with the FP. I do really like the color science and the form factor. Nice shot.
  7. I was hoping the FP would be a 4K replacement for my 5D MK3 with Magic Lantern, but so far I haven't really seen anything that suggests it's much of an upgrade. Here's some sunrise beach shots taken with Magic Lantern 14bit lossless raw upscaled to 4K for comparison. The FP is definitely an improvement shooting high ISO, but it doesn't look like there's any dynamic range improvement, which is disappointing. The thing that concerns me the most is the aliasing and moire, which hasn't been a problem with the 5D.
  8. There's definitely something screwy going on with the 6K to 4K downsampling.

  9. Very impressive at -3 stops, doesn't lose saturation like the Pocket 4K and X-T3 do. This guy is not a fan. I suspect he's never graded linear raw before.
  10. TRIGGER WARNING "I was pushed onto the bed and Brett got on top of me. He began running his hands over my body and grinding his hips into me. I yelled, hoping someone downstairs might hear me, and tried to get away from him, but his weight was heavy. Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes. He had a hard time because he was so drunk, and because I was wearing a one-piece bathing suit under my clothes. I believed he was going to rape me. I tried to yell for help. When I did, Brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from screaming." You may think that's just foreplay, but as far as the law is concerned, that's sexual assault. And BTW: Running defence for a sexual predator: really gross.
