    I’ll need to post a write up on using an xrite colorchecker and Atomos false color to match my FS5 and A7R4 across several profiles... hint, the false color will also pick up specific color channel...

    unless I'm rolling 120fps, the R4 seems clean at least up to 12800. Noise starts to creep in after that.

    So far, the worst thing about things about this camera are that it sometimes overheats,...

    I'm wavering on that decision myself... either will be a good choice financially (assuming I keep getting the same sort of work I've been getting), and I'd like to just murder my debt next year, but...

    The autofocus and unlimited recording times were what really sold me on the thing. The absurd number of megapickles was just a side bonus.

    That's exactly it. I was dangling it out the side of carts, craning it on a monopod, getting the "inside the opening/closing ice chest" shot... with a gimbal to keep it rock steady, it's almost like...

    A7RIV: A Quick & Dirty Review

    Recently picked up one of these to replace my aged GH4 in the "hybrid cam" role, as the latter started powering off randomly (in addition to having an inoperable touch screen and cracked lens mount...

    I have a strange desire to add a 18-200 PZ to my kit, which is somewhat staunched by the decision to move towards all-FF over the next two years.

    The long-long form solution I’ve used for years when renting is a Ninja recorder. The V makes a pretty decent monitor for oldish eyes as well.

    It’s more than a valid thought, one I’ve considered despite not owning nor wanting to own a single Canon body.

    My lens ecosystem is a bit of a mess... still a few m4/3 lenses for my soon-to-be...

    The one time I ever tried to get Panasonic proper to repair something, they charged me $85, and then said the non-focusing lens was unrepairable and offered to sell me a refurb for only 10% over...

    I started with the 18-105 and bought a Sigma 24-105 + SBooster, if that tells you anything. The 18-105 just gets frustrating to attempt to focus, and looks like crap in 4K or raw. The availability...

    Is it strange that this is also what excited me the most?

    I mean, sure, better stock color, like-IBIS, established sturdy media, two additional audio channels, similar body to likely take all the...

    Hopefully not that expensive if it's "only" 4K... granted I only get requests for 4K rarely anyway, but my next cam has to be future-proofed for at least 5 years.

    The FS5/7 can already do a full-frame 1.4 look with a Speedbooster in the mix. Kind of a staple on some subjects.

    As for an actual FF sensor... If it indeed has dual native ISO, closing down to...

    Issue being that frequently, I want to focus in on something close while also zoomed in. 18-110 is horrible at that from my experience.
