  1. This has tripped me up MANY times - make sure that all the audio tracks in premiere are "on" (you have 3 active channels - A1-A3. Click so all are blue, then drag them over and see).
  2. Thanks!! Thats what I've done - I swapped the .64 for the .71 because I did pay enough attention when ordering, but also went ahead and ordered a dumb adapter to see what I think of that instead. I know I'll get less light, but will I lose quality by only getting part of what the lens is seeing?
  3. Hey there, I’m getting a bmpcc 4k, and debating between the .64 speed booster to go with my canon lenses (sigma 18-35, etc) vs a good native MFT lens. Picture quality is my main concern, but curious to hear other’s thoughts and experiences!
  4. Thats funny, the reviews I read said the same, but a slight warm cast (on the MkII 77mm)
  5. Thats basically why I decided not to wait for it or get an R5. Either they (Canon) have incompetence happening at a major level, or they're being shady at a major level. For half the price, I was able to put together a heck of a 4k BMPCC rig and shoot RAW, and its been out long enough to have great 3rd party/user base support. If I find the BM lacking or annoying, I'll sell it and pick up a used C70 or whatever in a few years (assuming its not pointlessly crippled or has some other glaring flaw that gets found in a few months)
  6. Yall. Chill out. Its just a dude looking for something multipurpose, not professional critical listening. I'm reasonably sure he's not on set as a main audio guy, just needs decent headphones he can hear basic levels/quality with and still game with too. zerocool - you'll be fine for general use, but I am quite certain those headphones will not be at the same quality as the Sony if that's of any concern. I also use the same model Sony as my main headphones, But the $30 Bluetooth model I showed you still works great for me in a pinch, even though I know the sound is not as accurate a
  7. I ended up getting this one. Had great reviews, especially on keeping images sharp https://www.adorama.com/slr52vndm2.html
  8. I was looking at some power options for a BMP4k and Shinobi monitor, and like the idea of powering both from one system, but noticed in the demo video the guy said his HDMI port went out. In the comments, someone mentioned that it a bad idea to power both from the same power source if you are connecting the two via another cable (HDMI/SDI) as you could have some sort of unintended voltage/ground issue that can fry the video port. I can see that as being completely possible, but wanted to know if you guys had any thoughts/experience? Not something I'm really willing to just go out and test!
  9. Looks like it doesn't come in 72 MM though unfortunately
  10. I'm moving from a camera with internal ND to one without, and need a variable ND for my sigma 18-35mm (or other variable ND solutions). Anyone have any recommendations?
  11. I don't really do any headset gaming (just use the headphones so I don't bother others), but this headset does have a built in mic. I haven't really tested it, but have taken phone calls on it/used siri without issues.
  12. These are my favorite budget headphones. They're bluebooth and also have a 1/8" jack if you lose power or want/need to be wired. They a little bass heavy and not amazing in accuracy, but great for reference. They're closed back, and have surprisingly decent sound isolation for the cost. They aren't silent, but there's a considerable dB drop. Get a long (6-10') 1/8" stereo cable with them so you have room to move around. I use them for: Music/Computer Filming/Broadcast Mowing/Weedeating (blocks out external noise well enough for me to comfortably listen to musi
  13. Thats my line of thinking also? Why are you saying it would suck to use EF vs MFT? I just bought my sigma 18-35, lol (along with my other canon lenses). If I went 4k, I'd probably get the speedboster with EF mount anyways. I don't have any MFT lenses, and don't want to get crazy with a wide assortment of diff mounts
  14. Yeah, I've been having that same thought. Had a big project some through, so def don't HAVE to get rid of it, more was thinking I don't want to keep it and not use it while its value drops.
  15. The thing to keep in mind is my run and gun is silent B-roll - I'm not shooting docs. 90% of the time, I'm either locked down shooting interviews with a full rig, or need my minimal rig to shoot run and gun silent B-roll on a gimbal. C100 is already too big to get full articulation on my Ronin S, even after removing the EVF, so 200/300 are no go. I'm very interested in the hopefully/maybe soon to be announced RF cinema line, but I'm sure to get the features I'm looking for, I'd be looking at the $6k+ model. BMPCC is $2k. It's a balance of quality, value, adaptability. I also don't
  16. Premiere also has a color match clip option, but of course it all depends on the source footage you're working with (how far you can manipulate it). PS - The Chosen has been pretty solid compared to your general Christian Film industry. Interested to see how the new season turns out.
  17. Thanks!! I didn't clarify, a lot of my run and gun is no audio, just throw the cam on the ronin S and get B-roll, so not too worried there. Definitely not doing any documentary type work. Its interviews with wireless lavs, and b-roll overtop VO's almost exclusively. I also already have a shinobo external monitor w/hood, so not worried there either :). image quality and better futureproofing is my biggest reason to switch.
  18. Thanks!! I also meant to ask if anyone was doing this and noticed any appreciable differences in audio quality between the two input sources.
  19. Hi all, Thinking of selling my c100 and moving to the BM 4k or 6k. I don't especially dislike anything about the C100 other than limitations in bitrate, framerate and resolution. As much as anything else, its a desire to more to something a little smaller/more flexible for different types of shoots, as well as getting something a little more future proof and selling the c100 before its value drops too far. I mostly do corporate/industry shoots - lots of sitdown interviews (indoor & outdoor) and lots of out in the field run and gun B-roll. Before the C100, I was using a 7d and t
  20. I'm contemplating getting a 4k or 6k (still weighing pros and cons), but one thing I'm trying to sort out is audio. I mostly do corporate shoots where I Lav someone up, when its a single mic, no problem (Sennheiser avx-mke2). However, its not uncommon that I'll have 2 people mic'd on screen for a tandem presentation, and its often out in the field and I'm running solo, so I lav mic em both vs trying to run a shotgun. It looks like I could run one of the Mics into the mini XLR (XLR -> Mini XLR adapter) and the other into the 1/8" mic in (XLR -> 1/8" adapter) and select separat
  21. I've ordered the Sigma 18-35 F/1.8 to start off, I've just read so many good things and have had it recommended more than the Canon 17-55. I'm still keeping my eye open for the right zoom/telephoto for my longer shoot, but will keep with the 28-135 for the time being. There's been plenty of times I've needed all 135mm because I couldn't get physically closer, so I'm wary of anything too much shorter than that. I was watching Planet Earth II, and saw them with the 30-300 Cine. Now THERE'S my ideal lens! Lol. Just $45k, no biggie.
  22. I'm actually in the US, but appreciate the offer! Thanks for the insight!
  23. Out of curiosity, what do you not like about the 5dii? I know its old, but I rarely use it - I still do some photography with it, which I like, and its nice if the C100 is locked down for an interview and I want to go grab some B-roll. I saw you mentioned the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens - I happen to have the 28-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS already. Its ok, not amazing. Any thoughts on how the two compare?
