Why is his lens so noisy? Why is he recording the sound of the lens? Do all lenses sound like machine guns with that adapter?

All the older Canon lenses sounds like that. Silent they weren't. Recorded it so it would be louder so old turds can hear it. I guess you are REALLY young.

He recorded it so you can hear the different pitch when it was in focus and not. The Machine gun sound was mostly when it worked like it was suppose to. No hunting.

Or if one's  too lazy for that, you can just live with the look in the A6500 that makes the guy look like he has Jaundice...

"Pulsing" in AF mode is an old Pana problem, facing FZ1000 and new models too (as the FZ2000). The only way to sail around this AF flaw (continuous AF) is to lock and use the area mode (I told this @j

Max knows a lot more about Panasonic cameras than the so-called luminary, who spent most of his time justifying himself with defensive body language and filling the airwaves with repetitive waffle.

Sucks that he had to add a request in all caps not to plagiarize his work in both the title and the description.

I'm looking at you, Peter Gregg.

 

EDIT - What's worse about Peter Gregg's plagiarized video is that he has gone through and deleted every comment from anybody pointing out the fact that he's presenting someone else's work as his own. What a prick.

I mean, he said that he had taken notice of 'a certain hack circulating the interw3bs' sorta say. He just replicated said circulating hack to check its validity and shared his results with his audience. I certainly didn't get the impression he came up with the hack and proofing methods himself. Surely you can blame him for not properly giving credit or naming sources in particular, then again, with hacks like these, it's not too easy to point out the originating source for the hack, that usually requires some digging through numerous videos and posts... so instead you just say that the info was 'out there' and that you heard about it, rather than pointing to a specific source. Although, the thing with the lav mic is pretty much 1:1. Anyways, more YouTube drama over... what exactly? Surely we've got better stuff to do...

If you watch it past the 2 minute mark, he's explicitly explaining what "he" did as if this was an unsubstantiated rumour that he had then figured out.

What actually happened was two comprehensive videos were made, one doing exactly what he has copied, and another explaining the math. These were done by one guy and found nowhere else on the internet.

He's seen the video and he copied it essentially verbatim. There would be no problem if he had at least credited YodaYeo for the discovery. But instead, he used the phrase "what I did" about a hundred times.

If there was nothing wrong with what he did, why would he be deleting comments from anyone that references YodaYeo in the comments?

Peter Gregg also messes up by trying to explain shutter angle and introduces shutter speeds. Big mess.

No one can practice medicine becoming retired of any field else, correct? ; ) Worse, to be entitled as an authority, lecturer, whoever at a certain level and degree. Why should the things be different with cameras from one day to another? ;-)

No Christmas fantasy can save random internet when shit happens...

OK, I RTFM and it looks like C-AF doesn't work with VFR, so I guess the best I can do is 60fps and bringing down to 25p in post.  Looks like the 179 angle trick works to "fix" 24/25/30fps autofocus.

I'll give it a shot tomorrow and see what happens, but if anyone with experience with fast objects moving towards the camera could share their settings, I'd appreciate it!

Cheers.

I shot a test myself this morning with the Sigma 16mm f/1.4 at f/2.2, custom AF settings at +1, +3, 29.97p, 179 degree shutter angle and face detect AF. It’s pretty hit or miss. I wouldn’t rely on it for critical work. Maybe works better with Panny lenses. Or shoot several takes and pray. Certainly you’d want to double check focus with an external monitor.

Metabones, I suppose?

What about native lenses? Or then the Viltrox adapter.
