    I received today this mike:

    Not expensive, but works fine with the FX6 (requires +48V ON) and fits well with the FX6 support (diameter 25mm)

      I did a quite similar test as OnSet's one.
      I took a 4k clip and generated a low res timeline in VGA format
      Made some processing on this timeline (noise red, etc...) and checked what happens if I try to render a 4K output:
      - From the VGA timeline, it was only possible to export in a VGA format
      - After changing back the resolution of the timeline in 4K before export, it was possible to export a 4K video..... which was a little VGA clip inside a 4K black box lol . Moreover the generation was much longer than the same clip exported from a 4K timeline.

      Conclusion: On Studio17, Hoping to save processing time by reducing the timeline resolution is a bad idea

        Thank you!
        I have it flying on a Crane 3s if that is any help (pics earlier in this thread).

          Does anyone know why there is such a backlog for ordering an fx6? I know it's a popular camera and there was the fire at the Japanese factory, but the C70 came out around the same time as the fx6 and is readily available....

            There is most likely a shortage of components to make as many of them as they would like as no camera should ever be this unavailable. (Same thing is happening with the Komodo.)

            As far as we know, the C70 could be mostly "recycled hardware" in a different body and Canon has everything they need to build them.

            But maybe Sony is missing 1 or 2 vital pieces to complete the system. Just speculation, IDK...but this isn't normal.

              Perhaps customer demand has simply exceeded their forecasted sales, and now they can't ramp up production fast enough to catch up.

                  This new forum look, which is like a 2005 forum look, makes it such a horrible experience to use this forum now.

                    I was going to upvote that, but it seems you can't do that any more! I agree - the old theme was old fashioned, but worked really well. This one looks a little bit nicer but is much much harder to use.

                      Is this basically the place to discuss anything FX6 related?

                      New owner of the FX6 here. I have the stock 24-105mm lens and the Sony 70-200mm. I'd love to splurge on one prime. What do you think it should be?

                      I'm new to prime world.

                      I was thinking it'd be good to start with something that has auto-focus that doesn't require rails or a follow focus mechanism, at around 50mm.

                      There's such big price range between, say, the Sony FE 50mm 1.8 ($200) and the Sony FE 50mm 1.2 GM ($2000)

                      Here's a great article on the difference between the 1.2 GM and 1.4 Planar T* FE 50mm lenses: https://wolfcrow.com/sony-fe-50mm-f-...ens-for-video/
                      Is the Sony FE 50mm f/1.2 GM lens good for video, cinematography and filmmaking? Here's a detailed look at the important features.

                        The 50mm you mentioned and the 35mm and 85mm below are all great choices.

                        The GM is not worth the money for video, IMO.

                        35mm - https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...8_fe_lens.html

                        85mm - https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ..._1_8_lens.html

                        You can't go wrong with any of them and I'd go with the 50mm or 85mm to take advantage of that full-frame sensor and extreme shallow DOF.

                        You won't always need it, but when you do you'll get more shallow blur and bokeh from the 50 or 85 than the 35 (beautiful for interviews).

                          I just got the 50 gm 1.2 and it's probably the best lens I've ever owned, depending on how you compare these things. Hyper-anal landscape photographer lloyd chambers calls it a lens that you buy a camera for.

                          The AF system is state of the art. Probably slaughters the other 50 options, which is part of the reason I got it. (It has 4 XD motors pushing and pulling both focusing groups from either side.)

                          The rendering is really nice, sort of voigtlanderesque around the edges of the frame. And gorgeous bokeh.

                          It probably takes a minor hit to sharpness at f/1.2 but it still has enough detail that I consider filtration on CUs. Really excellent contrast and sharpness wide open.

                          If you're not going to use it at f/1.2, it may not merit its price difference. But for selective focus/subject isolation on medium and wide shots, I'm happy to take every half-stop I can get.

                            If you go for a 50mm, this comparison is worth a look comparing a few around 4 minutes:

                              Thanks all. Getting excited about that 50mm. Also dreaming of the 24mm: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...m.html/reviews

                                I'd get the 20mm instead...the "Netflix look":

                                Very attractive focal length for full-frame; just a tad wider than 24mm but not 16mm providing a unique perspective.
