    A "mist" filter has suspended particles in the filter that cause halation and diffuse the image. The other popular softening filter type that I know of has small circles of what appear to be tiny...

    But the thing is, I see normal AF functions when set to the 60fps preset.

    GH5 AF affected by VFR mode?

    Anyone notice auto focus being negatively affected when in VFR mode using a m43 AF only lens? I recently shot a bunch of stuff in 48fps using a Lumix lens on a GH5S but I couldn't get close focus and...

    Mist filters are mist filters. I doubt there's a major difference between manufacturers. These types of filters create a lot of global flare with heavy backlight and provide varying degrees of...

    I am aware of that, but it's doubtful that tracking or movement is involved with a 100mm lens on a stabilizer, so why bother? You could get a better shot on sticks or hand held.

    Buy a pancake zoom lens. Those things are perfect for small gimbals. I don't believe I've ever used longer than a 35mm lens on a gimbal, and I'd think you'd have a hard time framing with an 85mm or...

    Haha, thank you for the effort! No, it wasn't a studio film. I don't remember any a-listers in the cast. I think it's too trippy for a Lifetime movie. It's really strange that nothing comes up in...
  9. Trying to ID supernatural thriller.

    I saw this feature film in the past year or so (probably no more than 3 or 4 years old) and it's driving me nuts that I can't find it or remember the title:

    Protagonist was a young woman who...

    Resolution has nothing directly to do with color depth. As long as you're at least in 10 bit land, and you have good control with exposure/ratios, you'll be fine.

    I backed this and still waiting a year and a half since it was finalized. I really need it because I lose smaller items on occasion. Otherwise, I have stencils I use to paint my mark with my color on...

    My next question was going to be about whether web browsers support 10 bit color & apparently Chrome does, even on phones.

    I've never used it without the motor but it seems to function fine although there is a little (consistent) drag from the motor. I don't recall noise from the motor being excessive (and I would have...

    I'm not aware of any online video platforms that offer 10 bit video playback. It would be a tremendous waste of their server space, especially since most people would be watching that content on 8...

    I have one of these, and as a slider snob, I'd say it's excellent. No motors, but it's rock solid:

    I'll never forget the time I shot a weigh-in before a big boxing match where I had a prime spot up front, right in front of the scale. I was all set, I thought, with the best position of maybe 20...

    One thing I do with my insect fogger after use with fog juice is to remove fog juice and run distilled water through it to thoroughly flush it out when not in use.

    Yes, I think of vertical video, and even axial jump cuts which seem have become universally acceptable (probably because they don't look as bad on small screens).

    I seem to recall a lot of freeze frames in Soderbergh movies, maybe the Oceans series, can't remember. Never understood until now why people thought they were a mistake, but yeah, a graphic treatment...

    Internet killed the freeze frame.

    Sadly, it seems as though the freeze frame has gone the way of the Dodo. Anytime in the recent past I tried to use a freeze frame in an edit, clients always think it's some kind of technical error or...

    Yes, Paypal offers pretty great protections. Initiate a return ASAP. I've always come out on top anytime I had issues with lenses bought on eBay.
