    Any one here tried one of these Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 Di III RXD lenses on their FS7? If so what's your feedback.

    Maybe a silly question but you do have GPU access enabled? A few people have had the issue that even though they have good GPU card like your 2070 it isn't actually engaged in Premiere. As you say...

    + 1. I would second all the above comments.

    I would also add that with an S16 lens on the FS5 you have to use Clear Image Zoom at its max to stop vignetting. The FS5 doesn't have S16 Center Crop...

    It's not so much the hiding of the Lavs. I hardly ever hide them unless a producer requests it. Generally I prefer the sound of unconcealed mics but I have one corporate producer who hates the sight...

    No Lenny I couldn't discern from the video as to what gamma they were using in the Canon but it was obviously one of the "Custom" presets as they were using some kind of encoded XFAVC which is...

    Sorry I should have been more specific. This is how I am looking at it. S-Cinetone is a setting under Custom mode not Cine EI. As has already been pointed out S-Cinetone can be almost perfectly...

    The extremes being the extreme darks and highlights on any given scene which to me are very important parts of the scene. Re-watch the video. Where he is talking about compressed codecs, i.e. XAVC...

    Rather surprised how the Sony FX9 kind of left the Canon C500 MkII sort of in the dust when it came to the Sony XAVC vs Canon's XFAVC in over and under exposure. What does he say? "The worst...

    I always dual record in those sorts of situations with an Atomos recorder where I can very rapidly with the slider cue up to the necessary takes on the monitor. Very quickly done if you have a PA...

    Paul I don't know how your client is "re-wrapping" Sony H.264 XAVC files to MP4? Re-encoding yes but not re-wrapping which is the question you are asking. XAVC PCM audio files are not a supported...

    I don't find anything really wrong with the Sony menu systems per se. Probably been around them too long, ever since Sony cameras had menus. Yes I guess they could be reorganized a bit better but in...

    Maybe because my explanation was not too clear. I have that problem sometimes. Try this and see if it makes any sense to you. In normal Cine EI mode with or without a LUT engaged in the VF or SDI...
