  • Can we not hack this for a Preston radio follow focus https://www.wexphotovideo.com/sigma-cr-41-cable-release-1719099/?mkwid=soPrFDKX0_dm&pcrid=324791475721&kword=&match=&plid=&product=1719099&gcli ...
  • Thanks... Would the Atmos ninja have an input to turn over? Still would need an HDMI cable going? Negates it's "gopro" Ness but in car wells and vehicle rigs could still be useful?
  • Created discussion thread Remote run and cut : sigma FP
    Planning on using the FP as C-cam on adverts. Unmanned where gopros could have been but wouldn't have been good enough. How are we going to run and cut this camera remotely? There isn't WiFi is ...
  • No because the point with good handheld is to be able to be in with the action and feel the moment. Things that are impossible with any level of camera grip that reduce everything to a "shot".
  • Replied in Nikon?
    I will as soon as i can get to the nikon center in London. I've been testing the FP and it's fixed sensor is great. My z7 will continue to always be my stills camera though. Absolutely the best on ...
  • I like your style. Thanks for these tests. On your antenna shot it's best to put in a frame marker as I did with my full circle fisheye. After effects with a little line works well. The real test ...
  • I mean when I look too I can't see the sensor moving but off course understand the amount of movement needed to change the optical plane by a degree will not be visible to the naked eye on a ...
  • Thanks for the link. I'd not seen this. Loads of beautiful work. Pretty much all the videos are shot on gimbles or Steadicams and with the IBIS on; you can tell the IBIS is on due to the ...
  • Yeah please do this test with the IBIS off. I am not denying that the thing is "fixed" when its off. I am just saying that by the looks of things its not very well fixed. Others are reporting ...
  • WOW!
  • So yeah what you guys are saying is interesting. That you think the FTZ adaptor might be "locking"off the sensor and my dumb mount might not be. This is potentially true however.... My 24to70 Z ...
  • VR is the electronic one right? I'm going to head to the Nikon centre later this week but I'll be honest I've spent weeks looking at footage from all the camera manufacturers and feel I'm quite ...
  • I understand you guys all think the sensor is meant to to be locked when IBIS is not in use. I am saying it is clearly not very well locked. Vibrations are vibrations and really unless its glued ...
  • Thanks guys. Glad to have confirmed this and had it confirmed by you guys. I've had a lot of people calling me mad and wrong. These cameras are unusable for semi pro to pro level work. Where the ...
  • Thanks dude. Yeah this is what I am noticing. I got a full circle fisheye for an APSC camera and put it on the z7 to test it out. IBIS fully turned off. The sensor is definitely not fixed in a ...
  • This is a full circle fisheye lens built for APSC. You can clearly see the sensor wobbling about. This completely confirms my prognosis that the sensor with IBIS, VR etc OFF is wobbling about ...
  • I'm glad I am not the only one that sees it.
  • Hey, thanks for the reply. Like I say I operate cameras and often small cameras for a living. I shot a lot of the end fight sequence in the cafeteria on Kingsman 2 a completely stripped down Alexa ...
  • Yeah well described.. Like the sensor is wobbling on a point holding it in the middle.
  • Replied in What lens?
    Handheld whilst walking or just holding it in the hand. The jitters are tolerable if I stand still. Its as soon as the vibrations from walking that things completely fall apart for me.
