  1. Keep in mind you're using a 3rd party lens and adapter. That always complicates things.
  2. I hope Sony do what I've been hoping, and what Canon have done. That is, to make their 2nd-tier camera a s35 4K beast with no holds barred. The people who really want 6K/FF can go for the top camera, and those who just want a more fully-featured 4K camera can get the lower model. And, there'll be plenty of owners of the top tier, who'll still want the 2nd tier cam too for the 4K120P and as a b-cam. If the earlier rumours are true, and the FX6 was supposed to be FF with similar features to the FS5, then you may well be right that it will be DOA (unless the price point is well below the $7k suggested).
  3. While we're talking about the a6xxx's, has anyone had any problems with playback in Windows or Premiere? I find that Windows seems to play the clips from my a6400 (HLG) back with extreme overexposure. A clip with proper exposure will playback almost completely white. Once I bring them into Premiere the colour is fine, but changing the playback speed gives stuttering playback in a very strange way. It''s almost like every individual GOP is split in half and played back to front. So for example, it'll play back frames 16-30, then frames 1-15, then frames 46-60, then frames 31-45, etc, etc. This is on two different machines both with Windows 10 and Premiere Pro 2019 & 2020.
  4. If all of that is actually true, I'd expect them to price it pretty close to the C500mkII. Instead of offering clearly tiered products, they'll essentially have two flagships - neither of which does all of what you want, and you'll be forced to choose between 6K/FF vs s35/4K120p. Kind of like the old days of the 1d/1ds before they merged them into the 1dx.
  5. I'm just waiting for one of the world leaders to deliver a word-for-word rendition of Bill Nighy's monologue from Harry Potter.
  6. Ah yes, the bustling metropolis of Wagga Wagga. As an interesting comparison to the above photo, perhaps you could share one taken during the lockdown too. 🤣
  7. I don't imagine there's ever going to be an "it's over!" moment. Some of the stuff I've read suggests that we'll be living with this virus for years, in much the same was as we live with the flu. But of course, this is still early days so all of this research could turn out to be wrong. Maybe covid-19 will sign an armistice and the whole world will celebrate together for a brief moment before socialist ideology divides governments and an international standoff spanning 40 years and known as "The Cold & Flu War" will begin. Those in democratic capitalist countries will have access to a whole lot of new camera tech, while those in socialist dictatorships will only have access to a single, state-sanctioned camera. I hope that camera has the things I listed above!
  8. I'm still waiting for the (fairly realistic) camera I've wanted for the past 2 years: 4K 10bit 422 Intra (ie prores or similar) S35 120fps (in 4K) 2x XLR and proper manual controls Internal ND's V-lock battery mount (integrated, not some aftermarket contraption requiring rails and cables going everywhere) URSA Mini Pro G2 is still the only one that meets this criteria, but with my income totally wiped out for the next 6 months at least, it is totally off the table now. ZCam is the next closest offering, but seems to be missing proper audio.
  9. I re-watch that movie every 5 years or so. It gets funnier and truer every time.
  10. It was not intended to be insulting, but tongue in cheek. I just found it a little amusing that you posted an article about being stuck in Barcelona when flights were cancelled unexpectedly, and then a few days later (with hindsight) claimed that any person with eyes could have predicted it ahead of time. The problem is people are happy to blame their governments for inaction, but they also either a) ignore "advice" unless it is legally enforced, or b) complain about overly strict containment measures which inconvenience them personally. By the time they realise the seriousness of the situation (and after having ignored the "advice" the whole time), they're unwilling to accept any personal responsibility and would prefer instead to blame someone else. Case in point, Bondi Beach, where tourists, as well as affluent locals with an exaggeratted sense of self importance, ignored all warnings. Now there's a number of cases currently emerging in the area following a night of "business as usual" clubbing there.
  11. If it was so obvious, even to the bloke who runs EOSHD, and so easy to logically deduce 1 step ahead, how did he manage to get stranded in Barcelona? Hindsight is a wonderful thing, after all. I think the problem in the western countries is not so much a lack a decisive leadership, but a lack of personal responsibility. Everyone thinks they are the exception to the rule. Everyone thinks that they'll still be ok to go to the pub, or on their holiday. Businesses think they won't possibly be a danger to anyone and refuse to take precautionary measures. And yes, that selfishness extends to the politicians and executives who make decisions based more on their stock holdings or poll ratings than on overall public benefit. It is not a leadership problem, it is a cultural problem. We've seen that here in Australia where thousands of people swarmed Bondi Beach despite government warnings. People are equally culpable at all levels of society, not just in leadership.
  12. Yeah fair point. I didn't realise the 1DXmkIII did raw at 60fps. That's not to say it is any more practical though! Yes that was kind of the point I was getting at. 8K raw would be so massively impractical, particularly for the target market, that I very much doubt it would be included.
  13. I like how you conveniently left out the part where I said it was my experience working as an AC, so that you can accuse me of making generalisations. Perhaps what we can all learn from this is that there are big differences across different styles and markets. And that some people don't like their world views being challenged. I also really like that you accuse Australians of having no sense of humour, (sorry, the precise quote was "humor") and then go off like a firecracker when I made a joke. And, as I noted, showing me lots of photos of guys not shooting with easyrigs is not exactly definitive proof of anything. The internet is littered with photos of all sorts of things. I could probably find a collection of photographs of Ukrainian teenagers dressed as pirates, but I'm sure you would not take that as proof that pirate attire is the dominant fashion trend amongst Ukranian teenagers.
  14. 8K raw would be more than double the data of 5.5K raw. That's a whole lot of headaches for media & storage costs!
  15. I was kind of hoping that the FX6 would be a maxed-out S35 4K camera. Making it FF means they have to leave out critical stuff in order to not step on the FX9's toes. I'd rather have 4K & s35 if it means other things can be left in like 4K50/60 (or even 120), 10bit, etc.
