    It’s all dependent on the requirements of your grading. If you don’t need secondary colour corrections and aren’t pulling mattes from colour tones within the frame. The extra compression of 4:2:0...

    The Sony F5 and F55 can record 2K raw from their full 4k sensors. Iím not sure why nothing else seems to offer that same raw downsampling capability.

    Holding a healthy amount of skepticism (for everything) is a code I try to live by.

    With the simplicity and integration of 3D LUTs into basically every piece of post software out there, it's beyond me why so many people still dance between SOOC and LOG workflows. It just seems like...

    Depends if they improve the video recording specs. I'm holding out hope for a 10-bit 4k 4:2:2 internal recording option (to match the S1H). That would eliminate any hesitations with recording...

    How do you mean (I don’t quite follow)? A MILF ready to shoot package is about $112,000 AUD at the moment. At $1100/day, you’re looking at approximately 100 days just to repay the initial outlay, you...

    I came very close to putting down a deposit, but rental rates here have already dropped from about $2000/day to $1100/day for the MILF. That's a 1% rental rate, or 100 rental days to pay one back....

    I definitely think I'll wait for the Tentacle Sync E, the control interface of the Tascam just looks too finicky for someone using these things as infrequently as I do.

    And I've no doubt you get...

    I’ll take the faint yellow/green cast of the new colour science over the older magenta cast any day. It’s much nicer out of the box.

    That said, it never took more than a few seconds to balance in...

    Thanks guys, this is all super helpful. My sound recordist mate told me about the Zaxcom (which he has) which sounds amazing, but one look at the price told me that it's one to leave to the...

    Wireless lav with built-in recording?

    Hi guys,

    I got burned a little by my Rodelink wireless lav kit on an instagram shoot last week. It was essentially a press junket, and I was grabbing BTS material of the talent going through the...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure they both have settings to hold the focus when the subject leaves the frame/focus is lost though. So it's a characteristic that can be changed if need be.

    Very interested to hear your findings David. It's been odd how few user reports we've heard about it to date.

    I think the X-T3’s 4k being downsampled from its 6k sensor is one of the primary reasons it does so well image-wise (and also part of why the 4:2:0 subsampling internally holds up better than it...

    a Cardellini and Grip Head mounted just beneath the light will suffice.

    Not quite. Everyone quotes bitrates based on 30p for some reason (I guess because itís the highest ďnormalĒ frame rate people shoot).

    So at 24fps the Canon should yield about 328Mbps, whereas the...

    I've fed a Sound Devices Mix-Pre3 into my X-T3 a couple of times, but the internal pre-amps are so crappy, that even on the minimum amplification (letting the sound devices do all the heavy lifting)...

    I'm hoping the fact they're really doubling down on video features might change that. But yeah, not overly hopeful.

    I'm still blown away by how close the X-T3 is able to match my A-cameras, but...

    [FS: Optics] Zeiss 21mm T/2.9 CP.3 (PL-Mount, Feet)

    Hi guys,

    I've moved on to some faster glass, so selling my much loved Zeiss 21mm CP.3 (PL-mount, Imperial Markings).

    This was the wide-angle prime I paired with my Zeiss CZ.2 zooms, so it's...

    Ah crap.... if they follow the S1H's lead and put a 10-bit 4k 4:2:2 option in there, they'll probably get me on the upgrade for that and better battery life alone.

    I wonder if full-size HDMI is...

    The 300Mbps XAVC from the FX9 does look like a significant improvement over the FS7, the downsampling from 6k clearly makes a difference.

    I’m interested to see it side-by-side with XAVC480 from...

    Correct. I wrote up a bit of a blog post about it (that you might find helpful) after conducting a quick test with the Arri LF when that first came out: http://dreamsmiths.com.au/blog

    I wouldn’t read too much into the colours of the outdoor test. They shot into sunset (you can see a streetlamp has turned on in one or two of the clips), so anything could have been happening to the...
