    I spent a day or so looking at all of the available bus-powered DIY M.2 TB3 enclosures, and as far as I could tell, performance speeds seemed to be pretty consistent across the board, 1500MB/s writes...

    Good catch! I'm pretty sure I'd have grabbed each of my frames from paused footage. So that'll definitely be skewing the results. :/

    So everyone please ignore the measurements I got!

    I just picked up a pair of Envoy Express enclosures from OWC (which were just released). Really tidy little units, quite a bit less expensive than the Orico options and the cable is replaceable (so...

    The Mix Pre 3 is great, I just really wish I hadn't bought mine a month before they released the v2.0 with 32-bit float (which, for half-deaf cameraman, is a MUCH safer proposition)!

    You’ve got to find photometrics at comparable beam angles and distances to get any clear picture of comparative output.

    I wouldn't read too much into those tests, as half of the cameras haven't been exposed correctly. Both the Canon and the Komodo appear to be pretty much a full stop underexposed (according to 18%...

    Wow! Consider me SUPER impressed. Here's two similar shots from a film I'm working on at the moment, A-cam was the Sony F55, B-cam was the Fuji X-T3 on a gimbal (for just a couple of shots).

    What I don't get, is that they figured out the whole menu situation with Firmware v8 (or whatever it was) on the F5 + F55. The quick menu on those cameras is great, and about as easy to navigate as...
