    You mean you want to just add a dip to black to a video without re-encoding the whole thing? As far as I'm aware this is not possible.

    Just in case everyone thought it was a joke (given the comedy image) I'm bringing up the D-bag (comedy name!) again. I've briefly tried a Cinesaddle and this is way better. With the shoulder straps,...

    This is like the Cinesaddle but with shoulder straps and velcro straps on the back. In practice, the weight is distributed between shoulders and lower back / hips....

    "For instance, the camera racks focus from actor to car keys in foreground..."
    I'm pretty sure you could programme focus pulls on the Canon XL-H1 back in ancient times. Unless that was a dream.

    If enough people make a fuss about it then maybe but I haven't seen any evidence that enough people care. It seems strange to me that it's not considered an issue for 'pro' cameras. You would think...

    "Int Mic" means internal mic. You've got an external mic (G4) connected to Input 2 so set Channel 2 to Input 2. Set the level of Input 2 to "Mic in".

    "and in my book, the term is incorrect". If it makes you feel any better, the roots of the word "film" are all words meaning skin or animal hide. It was then generalised to refer to any membrane....

    What a shame. All these video and video-first cameras from Sony released alongside lenses with awful breathing. Some of those lenses even have de-clicked aperture control!

    FX6 owner here. Am I alone in wanting a set of super-lightweight cine zooms that will also work with autofocus? Don't care about servo. Could be like the 24-105 f/4 but optically better. Or like the...

    ""Thicker" is one of the terms that has been used over the years to ambiguously mean better-looking without being able to explain why."

    It's very clever marketing as well. Once you've tried a specialised hardware controller you won't want to go back. You'll start looking at what else is on offer.

    The first hit is always free.

    I have the Kinotehnik as well. Used it on the FS5 and also on the FX6. It works surprisingly well but it's not perfect. Surely someone will come up with a higher-quality alternative that is just as...

    It looks delicious, I want it. On the other hand, the EVF is possibly the best thing about the a7Siii so I won't be getting it.

    All these 'cinema cameras' with no EVF. If I start a rumour that...

    Thanks Doug, that's all really useful info.

    I still think it might be too heavy for me. I generally put the LCD at the front of the top handle and shoot with the camera braced against my chest or...

    That is really good to know Doug, and I'd actually much rather have a decent loupe solution than an external EVF.

    My only concern is weight and balance. When balance is most important is when I'm...

    I always used a loupe on the FS5 LCD, same with the FX6. At the end of the day, for me, the fact that I can position it anywhere makes it better than any EVF on the back of a camera. Even though it's...

    Por que no los dos?

    For what it's worth, I've found the FX6 a real pleasure to shoot with. I'd much rather shoot run n' gun doc stuff with the FX6 than with the a7Siii.

    Mine is definitely not that loose. I'd say it's marginally stiffer than the LCD mount on the FS5 - so not great, but not the disaster you're describing either. And it's fine with the Kinotehnik on.

    I think peaking on the FX6 is better than on the FS5 (it certainly looks more refined). I haven't been using the camera for long enough to really gauge accuracy though.

    I use one of these on the...
