as Turboguard said I'm still struggled with colour a whole video correctly. Before this camera my workflow is pretty much slap on a decent lut => tweaked a few thing and deliver. My goal this year is to try to up my colour skill.  

This is a video that I did while strolling the street of Melbourne. The sound is actually the on board mic since I din't expect such a performance 

 

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 :)

i've removed mine. You can just do it by hand my pulling as close to the base of the port cover near the hole as possible. It takes a while but eventually they will pop out. They can also be reinstalled but that took me a while also.

I was testing a battery earlier and it died while recording and to my amazement, I didn't have a corrupt file when I put the card in my computer. Does anyone know if the 6.1 update fixed that problem?

We write the file headers/close the file every 5 secs during record, our cameras since the BMCC have always periodically written the headers/closed the file so at most if you lose power you might lose the last 5 secs of the clip. If you lose power before 5 secs of recording, then it could be an issue.

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.

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.
