  1. Worked seamlessly for me. My biggest gripe is why it won't work with Big Sur. Cinetone looks wonderful for simple projects. I wish they would give us an update with shutter angle and custom WB in preset 1/2/3 modes.
  2. If you browse the FM forums you can normally find a used A7iii for $1300 and under. I've even seen $1150-ish with low shutter counts. While I love my Rii the 7iii is the better buy. The battery life alone is well worth it. Unless you need the extra MP having a smaller file size sure is nice on the hard drives.
  3. Watching it in the highest resolution helped but I agree, its Youtube. I always wonder why these videos are not on Vimeo too.
  4. Few things to note. They did not blast demo units to YouTube people. This is incredible. For someone that has invested in Sony glass over the years it is great to have a versatile hybrid camera by Sony. I am looking forward to seeing more over the coming months. This is the first Sony video that I've been impressed by the look. Same color as the FX series with Cinetone. I like it!
  5. Personal work I am trying to match the look of the BM with the Sony. I really enjoy the look of the micro and the modern tech of the Siii. I love the look of the BM for interviews and would love to get the look on the Siii as well with AF being so damn good. Plus the ability to punch in if needed. I do a lot of product YT/IG ads that need the modern look that the Siii does wonderfully. I hope I can make the Siii a work horse like my 7iii and Rii have been for me. I will share a few clips in the coming weeks.
  6. I picked one up. I'll be using the Siii and BMMCC together. My first big job is in a few weeks in Belize. Time to really test the Sony in the real world. This year I'll be investing in better audio equipment and lighting.
  7. I would love to see BM make a new square style camera. I ended up selling my P4K and keeping the micro. I love the Siii but the image from that little cube is so good.
  8. I recently received my Mac mini M1 with 16gb. I love it but has its limitations. Sony A7Siii - Everything runs perfect until 120. I get a little lag with some 120 clips. I am running the M1 resolve. Grading is easy. Adding grain or NR does drop frames in 100%. BM - Runs perfect with grades. Less drop frames when adding NR or grain 100%. I am so happy with the purchase. I shoot more photos and the system burns through any file. The system is almost silent which is helpful. Another thing to note is while rendering video I can still use other programs. On my other system I h
  9. I thought the same thing until digging in. I have a late 2015 that they say is not supported. I just sold it for $800 so I feel pretty good with my investment for five years. I don't do high end video editing but really looking forward to the Mac Mini M1. I put my order in for the 16gb and 1TB storage. The last project I finished last week has three crashes with Davinci which was a headache. I am also going to pick one of these up. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087F3JFYQ/?coliid=I2TV87P6VZDY6X&colid=5RBLJJ4RCHVQ&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it This will speed up projects fo
  10. I haven't used a tripod yet. In the video above that was all handheld.
  11. Sorry for the delay. The rig. Metabones BMMCC version, Shinobi, small rig wood grip, RADIOPROK HDMI , expansion box and button, small rig top grip and sony battery. I want to covert a couple of my FD lens to EF so I can use them at a better crop. The picture between my P4K and Micro work so well together. Some slight tweaks are needed but nothing hard. I personally like the Micro for closer shooting and the 4K for landscapes and distance shots. Sorry for the out of focus but here it is. Screen grab from the Micro on a native cutthroat from CO. -Dave
  12. First outing with the camera. handheld with a 24-105. Loved the camera. I need to adjust a couple things but for the most part a near perfect camera for me. It was extremely dark with the forest canopy. I'll try the Sigma 18-35 next. -Dave
  13. Thank you for sharing and the quality of that video is incredible. I feel very confident in swapping the mount. I used to do tiny work with screws, electrical, etc. I may just start with my 24 & 35. I just tried my generic booster for the FD - M43 mount and works as it should. My 35 is the same in the video for the dream set ( go figure ) and I personally like the tiny size of the 24 2.8 over the f2. I am blown away with the IQ of this camera. I hope to use it next week on a project I am just starting. Again thanks guys! -Dave
  14. Received the camera and already blown away with it. The rig I currently have will work much better with the hard hiking, fishing scenarios I will put it through. Being able to have this small rig and my Sony for stills takes a huge amount of weight off. I am going to convert my FD lens to EF mount so I can leave the Metabones that was included on there. I have really enjoyed what I have seen with the Leica R lens and may start saving my pennies for a small set. Converting them to EF mount as well. Even better news the Metabones works MUCH better with my Sigma 17-50 and the IS when needed
  15. I am also wanting to use a couple Minolta lens on this. Does anyone have experience with the following speed booster? https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1218400-REG/mitakon_zhongyi_mtkltm2mdm43_minolta_md_lens_to.html/reviews I can use a standard adapter but would like the extra stop and view. -Dave
