  1. GH5 Lots of real-world tests are needed before...

    Lots of real-world tests are needed before finding the right light weight combo to supplement the main cams. Keeping up with new camera models and lenses are getting expensive for me, especially...
  2. GH5 2000mm lens will me roughly the same as 512mm on...

    2000mm lens will me roughly the same as 512mm on the 2/3" HD. It'll satisfy the needs for shooting non-tracking small-medium sized birds. Pretty much limited to static photo coverage only. Can't...
  3. GH5 Canon 50-1000mm cine servo for Super 35mm. After...

    Canon 50-1000mm cine servo for Super 35mm. After having to take 4 trips to carry that 15 lbs lens and all sorts of tripod supports, I revert back to 2/3" Fujinon HA25x16.5. No tripod support needed....
  4. Mexico City airport customs tax on production gear

    I'll be traveling to Mexico City, MX in few weeks. Bringing a medium-large form factor cam and lens, Pelican cases. For sure will be screened. I heard horror stories about the airport customs taxing...
  5. GH5 A very mobile setup. I can imagine you can get...

    A very mobile setup. I can imagine you can get much more shots per day than the VC Lt or 35. Can easily slip through malls and protected cities without time consuming permits.
  6. GH5 I already own the VC HS and 35. Love them but it...

    I already own the VC HS and 35. Love them but it is very difficult to shoot on remote locations. It is so heavy that i have to walk 4 times to first carry the tripod and then then heavy 30 lbs cam...
  7. GH5 The rig and setup time took about 45m to 1 hr for...

    The rig and setup time took about 45m to 1 hr for every location arrived. This is the actual time with a previous production I'm with using the Sony A7s. After 2 months, daily 12 hours of shooting,...
  8. GH5 S1H's total cost is adding up to Varicam family of cams

    I'm taking a close critical look at the actual cost of a working S1H vs a Varicam LT. Although the body is about $4K, the needed core accessories such as a shoulder rig, outdoor VF, outdoor Small HD...
  9. Varicam35: The 512 Gb B series are extremely scarce now....

    The 512 Gb B series are extremely scarce now. Guessing stock is depleted in order to make room for C series. Major retailers do not have B or C in stock. Prior to upgrading to AU-XPD3 TB3 reader, m.2...
  10. Varicam35: Express P2 C series vs B series differences

    Wondering what is the difference between the C and B series Express P2? Particularly if C series will last longer or improved upon? There is zero mention of the feature of the C series. The transfer...
  11. VaricamLT: I figured how to transport 6 Core SWX 98 Slim &...

    I figured how to transport 6 Core SWX 98 Slim & four 190 Prime on my body to satisfy the VC35 large power requirements. The VC35/HS feels like a main camera that you can count on. That's shooting w/...
  12. GH5 The S1 family of cams only downside is investment...

    The S1 family of cams only downside is investment of native L-mount lenses to take full advantage of the time lapse and other features. I have quite a few EF lenses but the EF to L adaptor real world...
  13. GH5 Got your link. Thanks. It boils down to whether...

    Got your link. Thanks. It boils down to whether an extra 4 stops of DR and higher bitrate on the S1H can be sacrificed. I'll be saving about $5-6K for the S1H body, new L-mount lenses and...
  14. GH5 GH5S V-LOG L similar to V-LOG found on Varicam series?

    The GH5S body only price is very good now - about $1.5K used. About to order one but concerned if my investment is worthwhile. I'm guessing lots of people are going to the S1H and leaving the GH5S in...
  15. VaricamLT: Got it. Not too comfortable having to constantly...

    Got it. Not too comfortable having to constantly plug in the cable and removing for the control panel. Over time the cable or connector will go bad. On a side note, it appears to me that the S1H has...
  16. EVA1: Best lens mount to choose for Panasonic Cinema series cams

    I'm looking into buying high quality long-term cinema zoom and prime lens. They're not cheap and want the investment to last at least a decade or more. But the cam market is constantly changing and...
  17. VaricamLT: Control panel must be plugged in and mounted every time during the VC-LT shoot?

    I've been using the VC HS & 35 for couple of years now. They're great but there are times when I need a smaller form factor cam and near identical features to the VC-35 & HS to cover certain type of...
  18. My biggest gripe against Tentacle and similar...

    My biggest gripe against Tentacle and similar products is the lack of user replaceable batts. This means the life time cost of the devices will be 2-5x more expensive than user replaceable batts. You...
  19. Finding a rental place in a 3rd world country...

    Finding a rental place in a 3rd world country that has a Sanken CS3e is not working out. They want a caretaker for a Rode NTG series shotgun. It gets expensive after 10 days of shoot.

    I'll...
  20. AudioTechnica BP4029 for noisy dialogue as an alternative to Sanken CS3e?

    I'm in a special situation where I'm out of the US for several months and don't have my usual dialogue mics (Sanken CS3e, Schoeps CMC641). Due to very tight size and weight restrictions imposed on...

    I verified the MUTE sw on the TX. It is set to unmute. Scanned new frequency blocks and manually entered the preset freq like I normally would. No luck. I noticed that if I leave the RX off for 12...
  22. After a 20 min sending continuous TC, it worked...

    After a 20 min sending continuous TC, it worked as a test. Then used the G3 for regular audio for 2 days. All of the sudden the receiver would not receive anymore. The green RF just would not...
  23. GH5 After using the benchmark app, the write speed on...

    After using the benchmark app, the write speed on Micro P2 A series is about 27 MB/s, read is about 48 MB/s. Not enough for 400 Mbps on GH5. It worked OK for the 200 Mbps. There's the Micro P2...
  24. GH5 Micro P2 v1 media compatibility on GH5

    I have quite a few Micro P2 v1 SDHC media that I use with the Varicam and other Panasonic cams. So far they're working great on the GH5. Seems to be able to record at UHD, 29.97 without any dropped...
  25. I found a more elegant solution to untethered TC...

    I found a more elegant solution to untethered TC recording: Timecodesystems' Ultra Sync One. It cheaper than the Senn G4 set and seems to be better suited for wireless TC over 100m. I noticed w/ the...
