Help... I got a G6

Recommended Posts

id love to hear g6 specific tips and tricks from my fellow owners!!!

its day one for me with the camera; never owned a panny before so this is all new to me :o

 

what do I need to know about this lil guy? :)

 

one question right off the bat:

 

so i see that 24p is available in avchd but not mp4 (?)

 

whats the easy way to deal with avchd files on a mac running mavericks? no idea wtf is going on with the file structure/whatever. i have cs6 software btw

 

P L E A S E  H E L P  G U Y S

 

also, generally, id love to hear about what youre doing to make that g6 footage look more organic and less electronic, more cinematic and less videographic~!

EOSHD Pro Color for Sony cameras EOSHD Pro LOG for Sony CamerasEOSHD C-LOG and Film Profiles for All Canon DSLRs

edit avchd in adobe premier

 

I shoot on

Natural profile with contrast at -3, saturation -3 ,

avchd 24p

I try keep between 160-400 iso

dont use AWB - ever dial in the color temperature by hand it lets you shoot 2500k right upto 10,000k

(its labeled k on the wb menu last one on the list WB K set)

 

I dial this in to fit the look im after , at night on city streets try 2500k and add in more green /blue on that setting it looks superb

use the adjust menu to alter the amount of r b g y you want to add to make it warm or cool

 

out side I use 6400k with nd filters

 

a very good cheap cinematic lens for the g6 is the pentax 25mm f1.4 c-mount cctv lens - have a look on ebay - nice bokeh and very sharp

As andy lee pointed out - pull down saturatuion and contrast, maybe NR too.

 

And then? It's about the lenses. The kit lens gives super video look. Buy you some old manual lens and adapter! Or some panny/oly prime lens if you have some € left :)

 

And I forgot - Film Convert addon for your AP/AAE.

      I gave Nikon a shot, and got good results, but I just still aesthetically prefer Panasonic, so I'm hoping to find someone here who might want to trade their G6 for a D5200. It will include 1 Nikon battery, 1 Vivitar battery, 1 Nikon charger, 1 neck strap, and the Nikon 18-55 3.5-5.6 kit lens. I also have two Nikon Nikkor Ai primes: 28mm 2.8 and 50mm 1.4. I'd also like to get the Panasonic 14mm 2.5 lens. If someone wants to buy instead of trade, well that's fine by me too.

      This is a promotional reel I've just made for the small videography business I'm currently setting up (one-man-band doing local community organisations, weddings etc). Everything in it was shot on low-end/cheap cameras, several of which have been discussed and compared extensively on this forum over the last year or two. To boot, other than the Tokina 11-16mm all of the lenses were each bought for under $300.
       
      After a couple of enquiries about the gear I used for this reel, I've decided to add subtitles to show each camera (and lens) each shot was taken with. Just click the 'CC' button in the Vimeo play bar to turn the subtitles on.
       
      I'd welcome feedback on my reel, but this is mainly posted here in the hope it might be of use to others:
       

       
      Sorry the subtitles aren't synched perfectly to each edit (it's not easy with Amara). You'll work it out though I hope ...

      I'm starting to set myself up a small videography business: just a one-man-band doing local stuff - community group promos, weddings, etc. I'm still working on the website (www.lintelfilms.co.uk) and have just finished the 2nd draft of my promotional film. I'd really appreciate your feedback on the film. I don't mind at all if you are brutal!

      Hey guys!
       
      I'm looking to get into video work, and I'm trying to figure out which camera would best suit my needs. I'm looking for a camera with great stills as well as video. The 3 main contenders for me are panasonic's gh3 and g6 and Nikon's d5300. All of them offer full HD at 24 at 60fps, which is crucial for me. They also all have a 3.5mm jack for external microphone. These specs are similar, but Panasonic's seem to be better for video. If it was video alone, I would choose the Panasonic cameras. But, I'm also looking for great stills. Right now I have the sony a58, and I don't want anything under the quality of its stills. The d5300 has better dynamic range, AF, sensor size, and low light performance. I've heard that the d5300 is one of the best APS-C sensor cameras for video, but it's also one of the most annoying to use. I don't want to sacrifice any stills/video quality. Which would you guys suggest? 
       
      Here's a post by eoshd themselves against the d5300.

      I would really appreciate the help!
