    Andy is correct.

    Also, the lens needs to be able to communicate with the camera (i.e., a fully manual lens without electronic contacts won't work).

    EDIT: also, no gyro stabilization in S&Q mode.

    I will let others who are more knowledgeable chime in (and perhaps correct me), but sometimes it can be helpful to remember that with slog2/3 (or any log footage, I think) you're actually recording a...

    Honestly my Rokinon 35mm is one of my favorite lenses. I have the 85mm as well, and I think the CA is worse, but it's still a fine lens (especially for the price).

    Very nice, Doug.

    Are you getting AF with the Canon 200mm f2.8 or is this all manual focus?

    Unfortunately losing Face/Eye Detection AF in Clear Image Zoom is a bit of a killer in a lot of situations. But the quality does seem pretty good (I'm not sure I'd notice the difference).

    I thought I'd share some pics of the 3D printed adapter for the Hoodman H32MB viewfinder on my FX6. This is the one that users jmone and broughtonfilm (Nathan and Mat) posted about earlier in this...

    The Fs5 does have AF, and it's passable. In face detect mode I find it pretty decent, as long as you don't throw anything too challenging at it. It's not great, but it can work (although it pales in...

    Once you get accustomed to the Sony variable ND (which first appeared on the Fs5, I believe) it's hard to go back to anything else. Especially for working quickly.

    Yeah just to be clear I would not at all recommend the Sony NEX-VG900. I merely mentioned it as a curiosity.

    I know you said they were still a bit expensive down your way but I'd still consider...

    Someone else can correct me but I believe the specifications for XAVC-L limit UHD to 8bit.

    XAVC-S, which is newer, apparently can do 10bit Long GOP in UHD.

    The newer codec can also do high...

    You might consider the Tamron 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3, which is a great deal at $500 new. No IS but that's not essential on the A7S3. Not very fast but long enough to allow you to really blur the...

    It seems like Kinefinity (and maybe Z-Cam) do this pretty often. I have a friend who owns cameras from both and every so often he learns of whole new framerates, resolutions, and codec options being...

    I was also coming from a S35 camera (Fs5) so I've had to pick up some lenses. I have some FF manual lenses (Rokinon 35mm and 85mm; an old Nikon 50mm) but my current setup of FF FX6 lenses is:

    Apparently you can't batch stabilize—it only works one clip at a time.

    I like the idea of gyro stabilization and the results seem good but the implementation is terrible right now. It really,...

    I can't comment on the FX3 as I've never used it, but I do own (and love) my FX6.

    That said, I'd suggest looking into a used Fs5, which will be at the very low end of your budget, even with an...

    Very nice. I did your Fs5 course when I first bought that camera over three years ago and it was invaluable for getting me up to speed; I did the FS7 course a few months ago just to learn the camera...

    Criterion is great for movies—and I'm happy to give them my money.

    You might also look into Mubi, which has a catalogue that you're unlikely to find via the other services.

    I have the MC-11 and autofocus depends on the lens. With my Sigma 18-35mm and 150-600mm the AF works, but it doesn't work with my Canon 24-105. But it's not necessarily a Sigma/Canon distinction, as...

    That's what I would assume, although it seems it's being used here to refer to the actual look of the FX9, and not the acquisition issue (unless I'm misreading).
