  1. I imagine they will use the 43mp Sony 8k 12 bit sensor with some form of “x-trans V” and a new processor. probably get 8k24 with a limited recording time 6k60, 4k120 and much improved autofocus. hopefully unlimited recording in 4k60 and less those are just my guesses
  2. While I tend to agree and may seriously consider going the route of just monitor, I figure having a recorder will enable me to bypass the 30min recording limit. however I haven’t had a single instance where one take was longer than 30 minutes either so I may be looking for a solution to a problem I don’t have thank you all who replied with their feedback!
  3. Greetings! I typically lurk as I’m more of a hobbyist/prosumer user than some…however I do spend a good bit of time reading through the large amounts of knowledge passed on here as well as work on shoots with my camera do gain experience I am currently shopping for an external monitor/recorder and seem to be stuck between a couple of options. i shoot with a fujifilm XT3 (typically on a gimbal but am building a handheld rig currently) in 4k30 all-i for most situations. Being that the form factor is fairly small, even rigged up I’m focusing mainly on 5” displays. I know that Atomos Ninja V is wildly popular however the BMD video assist 12g HDR looks intriguing. 2500nit vs 1000nit display. DCI P3 color space vs Rec. 709. metal housing vs plastic housing SDI inputs on the black magic without additional cost or adapter 2 internal SD slots on the BMD and external SSD via USB-C. same Sony batteries on both however BMD uses 2. it seems as the ninja allows for fairly in depth color calibration and potentially more accurate colors in general. The ninja has anamorphic de squeeze, focus peaking, and zebra which are not listed on the BMD. The BMD shows only histogram, vectorscope, waveform, and rgb parade the ninja has a mic input and the BMD does not. I’m curious on the BMD side if this will cause more time in post on timelines if there’s an audio delay due to camera latency overall it looks like the ninja V may be a bit cheaper initially if purchasing one of the bundles that includes a 1TB drive and 2 L batteries with charger I’m entirely novice on this front and am hoping some could provide some feedback if they have experience with both, or just simple insight if I’ve seemed to overlook something glaring. or even other suggestions I just want a larger monitor to view while filming and I’d like to have a workaround for the internal recording limit. my PC hasn’t had any hiccups in Resolve with H265 files so I’m hoping that if I record to a different format such as ProRes I won’t run into additional issues

    Fuji X-S10

    I understand they don’t want to undercut their premium line cameras but this is a complete Canon move it has the same sensor and processor as the XT3 and XT4 and they can’t give us 4k60....and they won’t give an update for us to have 1080p240 in the xt3 sigh
  5. I’d hold off on canon apsc as their sensors are technically smaller than Sony and Fuji apsc so the size difference between it and what you have isn’t really that huge. Especially once the canon crops in (if it does in 4K) i imagine even a speed booster on ur current body would generate better imagery
  6. I traded my a6400 and sigma trio for the xt3 16-55 and 35 1.4 2 months ago. I’m truly blown away been following this thread for over a year just never had an account I’m a noob so the wealth of info and knowledge in here is great. Mom excited for new models solely so I can afford a second body xh1 or similar hahaha
  7. Example of the licensing fees from 2011-2015 for example (h264 specifically) there is also no reference of separate fees for 24 vs 30 vs 60p and if for some reason this doesn’t directly relate to canon devices their other fee structures are similar
  8. I’ve never had an account in here. Just lurked. But I finally had to sign up. Some of us grow so tired of reading your repetitive assumptions, theories, and misguided opinions. No one in their right mind thinks canon removed 24p to save a bit of money. Furthermore the license fees fees have an annual cap. Once a company hits that cap it can’t cost them more. I imagine big companies that manufacture video equipment using these codecs hit that cap regularly please stop repeating the same terrible excuse every page
