    I've always hated HDR photographs, this is just the moving version of that,
    it looks so affected and unnatural. Ughh, hard to believe that anyone ever thought this was a good look.

    I know, being a musician is a much tougher gig than what we do. Pay to play is insane, it's hard to believe it has come to this but I've heard about what you speak of as very "matter of fact".

    I've produced two shoots in Atlanta and a shoot in San Francisco and Sacramento last year. In the places at least, I can verify that all crew was more expensive than it would be in LA. It wouldn't...

    Yes, I've tried f/8.0 or even f/10 but it seems as if I am often focusing on a close up talent who is walking away from me or I am walking backwards in front of them, deeper DOF helps but it seems...

    And manual focus for gimbals for a single operator is an exercise in frustration. I've tried it and my keeper ratio is lower than I would need it to be from slightly OOF shots. Even on a 5" monitor,...

    The newest zoom is the XF16-80mm f/4.0 OIS. The hope was since it was a recently designed new lens, designed in the Fuji XT-3 video era that Fuji would have taken all of their video users into...

    The Auto ISO doesn't solve the iris ramping issue. At least on FW 3.0 on my camera.

    The DP on a commercial I just worked on was talking exactly about this. This DP has some gear, three F55s, a few Fujinon Premiere zooms, etc. and he told us that the California State Franchise...

    Thanks for the video Luis. This illustrates the issue perfectly. Also notice the clip with the Sony A7 RIII and the Sony zooms. Perfect focus tracking on the zoom and no exposure compensation...

    I've read this same thing, but supposedly the FW 3.0 negated this. I honestly haven't tried it but I will today and will report back to be sure. Auto ISO wouldn't work for most of us anyway but it's...

    Since we all know mounting a mic on camera results in just okay ambient sound and everything else is going to sound bad, I can't see putting a nice, higher end mike like a Sanken or Schoeps on a...

    The tests I've seen with the new S-Cinetone, I thought it looked pretty great. Not as good as Canon skin tones but 85% as good. I agree, the Venice looks great, but at that price, I'd spend more for...

    And greater than 100Mbps data rates, that's joke for UHD or DCI, it adds noise to the recording, artifacts, macroblocking. I personally think anything shooting UHD should be 160-200Mbps minimum and...

    Hi Marvin:

    1. Source?

    2. You are sure the exposure compensation is designed into each lens? If that's true, that's really disappointing because it means that no defeat can be built into the...

    I hate Sony Color science, it's really bad.

    I know, I too am getting frustrated. I really like the camera but the focusing issue is kind of a drag and tempers my enthusiasm for the camera. I'm going to talk to Fuji service to see if I can get...

    I have verified that the new XF16-80mm f/4.0 OIS still has the exposure compensation issue that plagues almost all of the XF zooms. Just beware that if you shoot reality, events or documentary where...

    Even if you stay on Premiere as your main, FCP X is well worth having for certain things.

    Let us know what you and Canon find out on it. I don't think Canon has sold nearly as many of the 70-200s, you don't hear about them much. I'm glad they sell it, but for me, I already own the EF...

    100% agree with NorBro. CRL and FCP X are a match made in heaven.
    We've shot our entire docu series in CRL and working with the footage in FCP X is effortless and it looks good.

    Nice. I'd love to hear your feedback after the shoot. I find that anytime I shoot any rig for huge, extended time blocks, things that irritate my body crop up that normally wouldn't on a "normal"...
