Yep ask for a replacement. It's not that flimsy on most cameras, just some of them.

Mine has not fallen off yet, and no battery has got stuck... Mainly because, it has to be said, it's been raining EVERY EFFING DAY since I got my camera and still cannot go out and shoot properly with it!! Time to move to Spain?!

Here it rains every second day ?

Some cinematic airsoft footage I shot at our local field. Trying out a new series for the channel. 

Still figuring out the Glidecam quirks but I'm going to be using the Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 for most of this stuff from now on instead of the Rokinon Cine DS lenses. Cheaper, no need to switch lenses, and the OIS will help out with that jitter. Ran this mostly as a camera test, there are going to be some narrative changes in future videos.

Could be worse, it is not on fire like California is!!

What's going on with the climate... It's bonkers.

Yeah, I had a photo shoot of a condo for sale in Tiburon, which overlooks the north part of the San Francisco Bay. It would normally be a two-million-dollar view (literally), but there was so much smoke in the air, the view of the Bay was ruined.

Around here it literally looks like a scene from Blade Runner 2049. About three months back we had another large set of fires, and we just had the one-year anniversary of the Sonoma County fires that destroyed large parts of the city of Santa Rosa.

The footage from inside the car of someone driving through the fire to escape was proper apocalyptic stuff.

Great! I am going your way too!

I am staying NX at the moment (I have 4 cameras and 8 lenses plus unlimited accessories) using those as my hybrid cameras, and I will eventually buy a P4K as a dedicated video camera, until change hybrid system altogether sometime in the next couple of years. Photos are just a small portion of my pro life anyway, so doesn't make a lot of sense to invest a lot of coin that way.

I am waiting for your real world experiences and comments eagerly.

It will be difficult to match the cameras, I have filmconvert and maybe that helps a little.

Does Resolve have support for the NX1 colour and gamma profiles?  If so, you could use the Colour Space Transform OSX plugin to convert both types of files to a common colour space.

Although it's not perfect, I've had good results and it does most of the work, I just wish it had support for Protune so I could also use it to match GoPro footage.

 I am working right now with a P4K.

Can't believe how cheap the construction feels (and probably is), buttons and wheels feel toy like.

The monitor is amazing, UI too. It balances ok, but not perfect with the Crane 2, it is kinda wide. 

I can't say I am really enthusiastic about it! Already burned most of our batteries. e..t.c

Like a girl, you have no clue why she is the one but she is... ; -)

"Is there anybody going to listen to my story
All about the girl who came to stay?
She's the kind of girl
You want so much it make you sorry
Still you don't regret a single day
Ah, girl, girl, girl...

Yeah its really a bummer when the exterior is shitty. Handling is a big part of using a camera. I wouldn't mind it being $200 more for a better body. I don't know, we are probably just too picky. Its still a banging deal for the price.

Yes but at least it gives the companies a reason to constantly improve. ?

People tend to forget when this same camera outcome didn't exist at all for any price actually... Nothing at all.

Closer only into the $100,000 realm without mention studio recorder and player to add a post production suite to double or triple the six digits investment.

I am just done with so picky and uneducated complaints. People need to get scope before start shooting without perspective at all from absolute ignorance, bad memory or simply lighthearted distortion of reality.

Well of course. I don't think the body being cheap is uneducated though. You could take bodies in the same price range that are much nicer.

But yes its a revolutionary camera.

You can say the same about the GH5 though or the Fuji XT3 etc...

Sure, even though fair reports on lack of reliability for X-T3 should concern much more than plastic because it doesn't look like very likely PRO... Sigh : )

I am a PRO because that's what I proudly do for living from a plastic camera !

This even makes me a better PRO... LOL

The image is there. Definitely. Good ISO performance too. We all are going to buy one. This is going to be a standard in our trade, either as A, or B, or special cam, or whatever. Also one can adapt whatever lens, so anything is possible. With 1500 total money you have everything you need.
