  1. Maybe its the mountain roads I tend to find myself on, but I haven t used a Gumball yet that could keep my camera level around those corners. After the first part of an S turn, all turns after that it gets out of wack and struggles to get back to level. Now, Im talking smaller gimbals. Like RX100 and small gimbals capacities. I haven t tried my Ronin S with a full frame yet, so maybe that would resolve the problem im seeing with gimbals. But the G5, G6, Crane M, Cosmo Mobile, etc. They all secummed to corners. It wasn't until I tried the Cosmo Action that I got footage like you
  2. In my experiences with driving footage both video and time lapse based using gimbals or using digital and/or gyro based stabilization. Is that gimbals are fine until you get some curves and if curvy enough can really mess them up. Ive even used motorized panning while capturing audio. My guess is this is using a horizon based in body stabilization like a gopro or Cosmo action with a good suction cup attachment system. Of the suction cup arms I tried i found the Joby one to never let go and was seven strong enough to hold either a Genie or Edelkrone headone with a Sony RX0, Osmo action
  3. Right now, I have only had luck recording ProRes RAW HQ to my Ninja V. But when I bring it into Premiere it os severely over exposed, even though it looks perfect on the Ninja V. To do this i installed the Apple ProRes RAW windows driver and then imported into Premiere , both at the latest versions. Someone else mentioned that I need to transcode it first and then import into Premiere. But what really sucks right now is that using my Sony XLR-K3M to do 4 channels of audio first, does not let me output 4 channels to the Ninja V whether ProRes RAW or regular ProRes HQ. And even us
  4. I have Resolve 16 and the ProRes RAW HQ or ProRes RAW doesn't seem to work at all there. What you are saying makes a lot of sense though. If I can just find a place to convert it to S-Log3 or something first. Was really preferring to do the color grades in Resolve, and then edit in Premiere (until I wean myself off of Premiere, lol). I will look at Nuke and Scratch, maybe they can handle this new RAW or maybe eventually Resolve will handle it and I can separately grade and export my files to edit with. Obviously for a cleaner workflow, it would be nice to grade and edit in the same p
  5. One thing that is going to be a downside on this camera is that we can't disable the noise reduction which usually do for my astro photos and time lapses (I don't shoot nearly as much video when it comes to astro) I tend to lean on quality fast optics versus ISO when shooting astro (stills). I used my 16-35GM until the 24GM came out. At f/1.4 and hands down the best anti-sagital flaring I've ever seen in a lens, it one of the best IMHO. Only downside is I typical shoot between 16 and 18mm on astro. But what I've been having a lot of luck with is doing 2 or 3 shot pano's in portrait or
  6. Thanks for that. Im new to RAW and 10bit 4:2:2 All Intra. But not new to Sony mirrorless and low light. I had success with a7R2 and a7R3 with low light, and even with my trusty ole a6500 paired with an f/1.4. Many times it seems like I need to do shooting around campfires, and late night astro photos. My experiences doing paid video have only started this year and it is nerve racking to say the least. So far with the a7S3 I have shot up to 100k ISO, but what im struggling with is how to turn off internal noise handling. I prefer to handle all sharpening and dealing with noise in post
  7. I hope so, but if not I understand. Im feeling like such a schmuck. Seemed harmless at the time, but now I see that eoshd is a real community with people who watch out for and protect that community. And THAT is a real rarity online and one that I want to be a part of and make things right with. I will do what ever is asked to repair and make amends for what I did. I really appreciate the offer of forgiveness, that means a lot.
  8. You are absolutely correct. My apologies I was trying to address the rules that I broke and focusing on that. I should have lead with a sincere apology first. Im ashamed and truly sorry. Im used to dealing with people in person much more so than online. Not an excuse. I really want to work through this shame and prove over time I am a good person and eventually will have things of value to share. The integrity comment really hit me hard, and am reflecting on what I have done. I got wrapped up in the "unanimosity" and lost my sense of person and how my actions affect the group of
  9. No products or services to sell. I only mentioned Leeming LUTs because I thought they were considered neutral corrective LUTs. I don't care what LUTs people use, but do want to communicate what I have chosen to start with. I shared a Vimeo link because its better quality than YouTube and no commercials. I just want to share what I could on a camera I've been waiting a long time for and learn and work through the new options. Its hard starting out on these bigger forums and getting any feedback. If you look back over my posts, I think you will see how much I've shared what ever
  10. Hey John, here is the updated video with the 5 different video settings in camera (as it should have been the first time, lol) https://vimeo.com/464041748
  11. I gotta stop using my cell phone and use my studio setup more, when publishing stuff... smh. I just had Premiere publish it straight after the export, since I was rushing out the door. Then I checked it quick on the road with my phone, and it looked fine. It wasn't until someone mentioned the blacks and the AUTO option, and I checked it as soon as I was back in studio and was about horrified, lol. I've never used AUTO before and didn't know what damage it could do, but I also didn't want to do my own interpretive grade. I think if you naturally focus on the brighter area's there was q
  12. Ironically, I am shooting at a brewery today, lol. Doing an OktoberFest, plus some B Roll for an upcoming commercial and interview series. I'm scrambling, I think my capture is good, just have a lot of work to do with the 10bit footage in post (I have not worked with much 10bit 4:2:2 before now). The A7SIII is performing great, I just need to step up my game now I think your image looks great btw, checked it out on my big screen and on my studio monitors (pair of BenQ SW320 which I calibrate weekly for my large scale printing). Now if only I drank beer, I could have all the free
  13. funny you ask, was already working on it and put that 1 minute clip on vimeo. Again, I am JUST trying to arrive at a neutral starting point that is ready to grade in any direction (camera match, creative grade, etc), so this is not what I would consider graded. Let's just call it a "corrected, straight out of camera" https://vimeo.com/user122394328/review/464521609/7b8f73ae37
  14. OK, I reset everything and now just looking to apply the corrective LUT and some level of a neutral starting grade. Here is just 24 second clip of one of the first clip. Just goes to show, I was so focused on the highlights, I completely ignored my blacks and shadows. I think from here, a decent creative grade could be done, with plenty of room to push it. https://vimeo.com/user122394328/review/464516430/65a7a1eb4d Below is my workspace AFTER removing the damage from AUTO, and doing what I was trying to avoid (basic grade that might have my interpretations in it, but oh well)
  15. I figured out what happened. I use Adjustment layers in Premiere, and normally work on it. I applied the corrective LUT first to the layer, and then went and did more edits. At some point the "AUTO" was done on the video itself, and I went on and did other things. Then when I checked the first time, I went to the Adjustment layer and it looked like AUTO didn't do anything, so it was just the Leeming corrective LUT. When back on each video clip was the mess that AUTO had done.. SMH What I was hoping to achieve was a neutral display of the various codecs and options with movement and c
