  • The Panasonic GH3 and the new GX80 / GX85 cameras do NOT have a time limit on how long they can shoot. The new low cost Panasonic GX80 / GX85 camera also shoots 4K video and has a built-in 5-axis ...
  • No, because a DJI Phantome 3 or 4 can only support cameras weighing a few ounces. Your mirrorless camera is MUCH too heavy.
  • Replied in MP4 vs XAVC S
    XAVC-S is equivalent to MP4 but in a different file wrapper. ( I think the XAVC-S format supports meta-data which I don't think the MP4 standard does ) For better quality video you almost always ...
  • Not do-able at all. To fly a Sony A7R II with a lens you are looking at drones that cost upwards of $8,000+ If you are after better quality video, then the DJI Inspire has a few camera options, but ...
  • >>>I use DNXhD blah blah blah codec to transcode The AVID DNxHD CODEC works a lot like the Cineform CODEC, I am editing on Windows so Cineform supports the standard Windows AVI file container, ...
  • What if you use a separate audio recorder that is 1-2 feet away from the gimbal ?
  • I choose my shooting profile to match the lighting that I am shooting under, so for flat overcast light outside I might use the GH4 "Standard" color profile which is pretty contrasty but it helps ...
  • I own and use Film Convert Pro which is a great tool to establish a specific "look" for your video, but Paul Leeming's LUT is far better at when it comes to turning LOG or LOG-like footage ( i.e. ...
  • The German company MAGIX has bought almost all of the Sony audio and video products and will be releasing new versions under their own name. Vegas Pro 14 is supposed to be released this September. ...
  • There's a very good custom LUT to obtain great color from the Panasonic G7 when shooting in the Cine-D profle, which comes close to the dynamic range of shooting in a LOG profile. Leeming LUT One ...
  • I don't know if there are any "real time" wireless headphones being made today, so I think you may be stuck using wired versions. Also, the audio quality of most wireless headphones is a poor ...
  • The one I recommend and use myself is NeatVideo which is affordable and does a great job for all kinds of video noise.
  • Any kind of mic that is off the camera will produce better quality sound. Normally when recording dialog you want your microphone to be less than 3 feet from your subject, which usually means using ...
  • This is normal behavior when shooting in a LOG format. LOG formats are designed specifically to record the maximum dynamic range and will sacrifice image detail and the tonal range of the image to ...
  • Last year I did a bunch of 4K low-light tests on the top Panasonic and Sony consumer cameras, and found that the Sony AX100 was the only camera that produced what I consider to be a usable 4K image. ...
  • You can get optional 2 handle grips for these "pistol grip" gimbals, so you've got the option of using one or two hands. I agree that if you are flying a large camera and lens, then the "pistol ...
  • I've owned the Panasonic HC-X920 for the past 2 years, and the only 1080p camcorders that I would recommend right now are the Panasonic HC-X920 or the Sony HDR-CX900. Both are very good in ...
  • If you are after the very compact "pistol grip" gimbals, there are three major brands to check out... PilotFly H2 CAME-TV Optimus BeHolder EC1 All three of these 3-axis hand-held gimbals are ...
  • Simply because of the F-stop I would go with either the Sigma or Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 zoom lens. Both are sharp lenses, though don't expect miracles from the IS feature. ( you need to be fairly ...
  • >>>Can the Hero 4, with such smaller sensor, produce more superior video quality than the D800? Sensor size has NOTHING to do with the quality of a video, but it does effect the DOF ( depth of ...
