Very nice video!

Colour is done very nicely, but if you want to learn more then come over the to this colour grading thread...  

You've done well with the Helios - I don't think it matches my GH5 quite as well as it seems to match the P4K, but it might be that Melbourne overcast light that helps it along perhaps :)

The audio is quite good. I didn't really miss a mic, which is great considering that audio was featured in the video.  Of course, always pack a mic by default :)

Thanks I would give it a shot once I've caught up with my projects. Coming from Vietnam, I have to say that screenshot you took really reminds me of home :)

Fantastic video! great example of the P4k and Helios. 

Thanks for the kind words. It is a really lovely len. I'm planning to get the 85 1.5 reissue and a focal reducer for m43-m42 as well. If only there is a wider angle len with the same look, I would be set.

My dear erstwhile member can you please stop attacking John Brawley now. I have long since given up on camera forum arguments so might not be completely up on who is right and who is wrong-evil /

I like the pictures. A lot.  This camera will probably replace the micro cinema camera for me as it’s not much bigger and is much easier to work with.  I didn’t feel as strongly about the 4K

What a shame. Who are these "deep state" BMD insiders that are here pushing an agenda ? Myself and Hook.  Who else ?  What do you guys think, there's a plot and conspiracy ?  You guys don't wat t

There is.  The Russians didn't just hang around drinking vodka during the Cold War :)

LOL.  yeah, I know!

Seriously, read that thread on reduser, it's got heaps of info all the way through.  IIRC there were at least three companies (or brands?) involved, Helios, Tair, and Jupiter.  I believe they were made across multiple factories over the time, so it's more complicated than just the three.  That guy made a set with all three, but they have a lot of lenses that overlap, for example there are  both Helios 44 (58mm f2) and Helios 77 (50mm f1.8), as well as Tair-11A (135mm F2.8) and Jupiter-11A (135mm F4), so there are many options.  

The USSR was an entire other isolated economy during that time.

Yes, Filippo has become the "name" of this sensor class LOL : )

 

Because BRAW will join Resolve to mainstream name as much as DaVinci was before to be bought ten years ago by their own hand.

CinemaDNG is also ten years old now but looks like pretty clear they didn't feel the need to buy it from Adobe then.

Seems to become outdated now.

 

Blackmagic is what RED declined to be... a proprietary system has the right timing in order to be introduced.

Without mention a mandatory rule they've decided to comply, that is, to let it open.

 

E : -)

With IBIS it would be! ???

LOL I have the first gimbal designed for P4K under 1 kg and a half for you! ; -)

but we also lost the uncompressed RAW ability of these cameras.

I thought about that. That's not good indeed, even though, if Peter Jackson didn't need it, will we?

In any case, they should keep it there. You can always install it backwards as you wish and need, I guess, isn't it?
