    Ha! I feel the same.

    OTOH, the topic of this thread is, "NO Sony Fs7!!"

    I think we're doing a dandy job of not discussing that camera. :laugh:

    I have an X-T3 that I just use for stills. It's fun and I like the available glass, the control, and the resulting image. I have no idea if it (or the X-T4) will work for you. But three suggestions:...

    I've done two jobs as sound that rolled on an FX9. It was pretty nice...and I generally at best tolerate Sony.

    So sorry for the expense, but it's a good choice IMO.

    IME, it's a term more common in Commonwealth countries than in the US. Kinda like rugby and Marmite/Vegemite. ;-)

    Ha!

    Chris, there's a reason we're all behind the camera. And email is your friend. :-)

    Also, I hate spending money too, so I hear you on the TC box. But if you could find a used first-gen...

    Do you have another mic or audio source that you can connect to the camera's XLRs? That could help you determine if the problem is in the camera or in the audio source.

    Also, is there a chance the...

    That's why you hand the cameras timecode boxes such as Tentacle Sync, Denecke JB-1, or Ambient Nanolockit. And also the necessary cables. And then charge production a rental fee on each box.

    I think the Vimeo preset exports to h.264.

    Make sure AME hardware encoding is switched on.

    If it's exporting to h.264 or h.265, maybe try ProRes 422 HQ. That should encode a lot faster (but...

    Great real-world report. Thanks Dan!

    Also: I can tell you hired a solid soundie from the little Denecke JB-1 TC generator on the back of the camera. ;-)
