  1. Would be interesting to see something like that in a Panasonic firmware update.
  2. Thank you so much! 😀 Yes, it was shot in VLog and graded in Davinci Resolve.
  3. First attempt at B&W grading with the S5, Canon FD 50mm f/1.4 and Helios 44M-4 58mm f/2. These are shots from a street fait in Athens. Shot on two different occasions. Music is done by me, I was feeling a bit melancholic at the time hence the title "Low". Hope you enjoy it!

  5. Never used an S1r but everything you ask is in the manual. For example it states that 4K modes have a 15 minute limit.
  6. I am the AI bot. Resistance is futile. We do the reviews now. Fudgee XHtooEs comes next. Beware.
  7. I vaguely remember that the FHD on the S5 in crop mode was even worse than in FF but I can be mistaken. I’ll test that one more time. That video is very comprehensive though!
  8. Please stop! My eyes are killing me! 😵
  9. If we’re talking about video, it certainly doesn’t help that most new cameras have awful 1080p quality. Only solution is to just shoot in 4K. Though my S5’s live crop mode has fantastic 1080p quality albeit only in 30fps. It puzzles me why the normal FHD modes are so bad on most cameras manufactured in the last few years.
  10. I don't get what ego has to do with this and how "wild" is the personality of someone with a potentially different opinion or needs than yours?
  11. Amen! Simply unbearable. Those are channels that I wouldn’t watch even if you paid me to watch them.
  12. Just checked on theBay: prices are crazy! 1200-1300€ for the 990 and 300-400€ for the vintage synth expansion. That’s nuts. I paid 500€ shipped plus 100€ for the expansion but I guess that was a long time ago…my D-550 cost me 250€ at the time. Crazy! VEAI is very good, I’m using it to upscale FHD 120 and 150fps footage from the S5 to 4K. My favorite model is Proteus 2, it can make close and mid shots look almost indistinguishable from real 4K.
  13. You’ll be surprised how many idiots there are in this world. Surprised?
  14. The VHS filter is a nice touch @Alpicat! Fellow musician here, I also use the JD-990 with the vintage synth expansion. Thanks @PannySVHS for shining a bit of light on this!
  15. The pleasure of shooting videos for me is to use a dedicated tool that inspires me (the camera of my choice) and my collection of vintage manual lenses to capture moments with a specific character and nuance. And then to re-live those moments at a later time through the whole processing and color grading on the computer. I never use auto focus and I only use smartphones to make calls, send emails or surf the internet when I’m on the road. I don’t want to use a smartphone to take pictures the same way my iPad doesn’t inspire me to make music although I bought many serious music apps at some point thinking I’d use them. No, I want to make music with my analog synths and my vintage digitals, those inspire me, not a tablet. So no, no smartphone video for me! 😁
