    I'd assume it is because of the coatings on the internal elements. For for your theory about adding filtration to be correct, you'd need to place a filter in front of each internal element that does...

    I keep seeing all of these lens makers releasing similar sets of prime lenses and while it's great to have more options and more competition, I'm blown away that nobody has yet made a roughly 17-50mm...

    Maybe a new sensor? That one has been kicking on in different versions since the FS700 in 2012.

    Hopefully we see some nicer out-of-the-box colour, and 4K120p continuous. Those are the two things...

    Is there something about the DJI footage that makes it different to any other flavour of h.264?

    I know this was said at least a little tongue in cheek, but I do somewhat agree!

    The first time I used an Arri (Alexa Mini) I was a bit intimidated, knowing what they were capable of and wondering...

    Thanks TSDavis.

    Perhaps I'll look into proxy workflows. I've never bothered to try it out before because every other file from every other camera I've edited has played back perfectly fine. Do you...
  8. Does Premiere Pro hate DJI 4K footage?

    Hi All,

    I'm having some troubles editing footage shot with a DJI Phantom 4 Pro at 4K in h.264. It is barely able to play back in Premiere Pro (CC2018 on Windows 7, but I've also had the problem...

    Not a prime, but: Nikon 80-200 f/2.8.

    Dirt cheap is relative, but for ~$500 this lens is absolutely fabulous. One of my favourite lenses ever - I like it much more than either the newer Canon or...

    This is what storyboards are for.

    Just do a couple of rough sketches showing the shot at:

    a) the opening frame
    b) the halfway point
    c) the final frame

    If it has version 3.10 firmware it should be capable of outputting 4K raw.

    You need to turn RAW on, somewhere in the REC/OUT menu. It's been so long since I've done it that I can't remember the...

    I've done a bit of reality and I'd say one indispensable position is a good story producer (or several good ones if you need to work around-the-clock). They will make sure that any developing...

    I think the GH5 can do what you want - not 100% though as I don't own one.

    If the budget is there for the Orions though, why shoot with a mirrorless?

    I understand that - but you only need to look at the popularity of the Sigma 18-35 cine to realise how much people are dying for an affordable wide-mid range zoom. And I think most people don't even...

    If you use one of the designs that are longer at their widest point and shrink when zooming in (like Canon & Nikon 24-70 2.8 lenses) then it does not need to be that much large of a diameter than the...

    The 18-50 was a rehoused Sigma I believe, but from everything I have gathered the (much nicer) 17-50 is an original design. You could be right that it was a loss leader though.

    I think my expectations are fairly realistic too. Red have pretty much already done it at the price level I'm talking about, but then they stopped making lenses. I'm not asking for something smaller,...

    The missing lens - a standard cine zoom?

    Hi All,

    Just wondering what people are currently using as a standard zoom for s35 sensors? It seems to be one section of the market that has had very little (or NO) development since the 7D came...

    I'll keep using mine until something significantly better comes along.

    For me that means:

    Internal 10-bit 422 (ideally prores/DNxHR)
    4K 100fps
    Pro camera features - ND's, XLR, SDI, multiple...

    I don't disagree with you. And I really like the EVA1 images I've seen so far.

    But that alone does not make it a camera that will get you hired. Producers often stick to what they know, and they...

    I'm surprised that nobody has really nailed down a next-gen FS7 yet (or F5/55). As others have said, the competitors (EVA1 & C200) barely match the FS7 specs wise, and don't offer anything special in...

    Nobody can answer without knowing what you're shooting.

    Personally I'd take an F5/55 and a Cabrio 19-90 over either of those options, because that suits my work and market much better.
