  1. Hello all, sorry to open a topic for this. But currently looking for a 50mm prime with good AF performance for video (quick but natural). I have the Fuji 60mm Macro and that one is very bad for video. Could not find direct comparisons on google. Anyone who has had their hands on both? Or one of them? Thanks!
  2. Yes indeed. I'm going with option 1. Any specialists out here with recommendations? I'm thinking of buying older Mac mini as a NAS. At Location B (which is offsite, somewhere at a family members house) it's meant solely as a back-up. At Location A it's meant as a back-up, but I might also look through files and copy them to a work drive. If it can be a work drive, even better but I think that's not possible on a low budget.
  3. Ok, I've been reading very bad reviews on quasi all kinds of cloud storage. I thought everybody used cloud storage, maybe they don't know the risks. That means there are two options left. 1. NAS at home and NAS at family member's house that I can access from my home. 2. Continue with hooked up physical drive's, which I mirror to one another. But one (or two) of them are at family member's house and/or deposit box. Option 2 is very hard to keep track of and takes a lot of discipline. But apart from that is pretty simple...
  4. Thanks, that's the one I'm considering now. I read they had faster speeds than others. That's exactly one of my other concerns.
  5. Hi Anaconda, thank you for your input. The thing is, currently I only have one location. So if I get a NAS, it would be at the same location as my other physical drives. I think the only solution to this is a cloud service, unless I'm mistaken?
  6. Hi all, what are you all using as a cloud storage service. Anybody using it as a permanent back-up or has permanent back-up solution? Been looking into Backblaze, but I'm not sure if I'm convinced. What holds me back is that it makes a back-up of entire system, while I actually would like to choose. Also apparently the upload speed is very low. Yes, I also use physical hard drives. Currently need at least 4tb. Thoughts? What do you use? What do you recommend?
  7. Would a HDMI to SDI converter solve this issue? So 1. HDMI Camera > HDMI Converter SDI > Wireless SDI Transmitter Or 2. HDMI Camera > HDMI Monitor > HDMI Converter SDI > Wireless SDI Transmitter Or 3. HDMI Camera > HDMI Monitor & Converter SDI > Wireless SDI Transmitter
  8. Well I meant as a buying option. I know renting would be well below 500 a day 🙂
  9. Is there any HDMI transmitter below 500 that is good enough for focus pulling?
  10. Slightly off topic. But how do the Viltrox XF lenses compare to the Sigma XF lenses and Fuji XF lenses regarding the AF performance? Especially asking AF performance for video. I sometimes use AF for slow motion detail shots, following/tracking shots. So not asking for talking heads, Youtube or such. Interested in these focal lenghts 13mm f1.4 vs Fuji 16mm f1.4 23mm f1.4 (viltrox vs old Fuji) 56mm f1.4 vs Fuji 56 f1.2 old version
  11. Any interesting deals from European shops this Black Friday weekend?
  12. Also curious what others have on their list, especially for deals in Europe. Affinity Photo 2, Designer 2 and Publisher 2 is on my list as well. Although I only have use for Affinity Photo 2... Might go for one of the Aputure deals. Also looking at a new iPhone (refurbished).
  13. Oops! You clearly have more Aliexpress experience than me 😂 The Colbor also has bi-color and single color fixtures. The connecting matrix design is what makes it interesting. You can create a led brute or dino light with these. I did see a picture with each fixture having a separate cable, that's a lot of cabling. They should make a single (bigger) power supply where you can hookup your matrix to, still need cables for each fixture, but only one power cable. Also a shame that you can't use the reflector in matrix. That would increase output significantly. Thanks for chiming in Kisaha! Do you know if they use the RGB to combine and form whitepoint? How is the output of the colors? Is each color bright and saturated? Are these flicker free at high speed recording?
  14. Yes the XH2S is very interesting. Although I wouldn't buy it as a trashcam. If I buy the XH2S it would make my XT3 my carry around. But not sure if it's smart to invest into this right now. I've been looking around and found some interesting models to replace my 550D, Fuji XM1, Fuji XA10, Fuji XA7. Any user experiences? Used prices vary a lot, sometimes comes into XE2S or XE3 territory.
  15. And did you check if they are flicker free on higher frame rates? I searched a bit on Aliexpress. I might have found something crazy cheap that you want to try out. Around 100 euro for 300W https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/1005003912590090.html?spm=a2g0o.detail.1000014.3.19247ecb89I2Jn&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreOtherSeller&scm=1007.40050.281175.0&scm_id=1007.40050.281175.0&scm-url=1007.40050.281175.0&pvid=9da7394c-e478-4d61-b54d-5f1fac4e4127&_t=gps-id:pcDetailBottomMoreOtherSeller,scm-url:1007.40050.281175.0,pvid:9da7394c-e478-4d61-b54d-5f1fac4e4127,tpp_buckets:668%232846%238111%231996&pdp_ext_f={"sku_id"%3A"12000027451792889"%2C"sceneId"%3A"30050"}&pdp_npi=2%40dis!EUR!125.47!84.06!!!!!%402101f6b116679930580155327ebaba!12000027451792889!rec Also those Colbor CL60 and 100's seem cool. They can be hooked up to each other in a matrix/array. Does anybody know if these pass power to each other? Or does each single fixture need to be plugged in? That's a lot of cables...
