Also worth mentioning is that the HC-X1 is basically the same camera minus the SDI ports and much cheaper (in the UK, £2,000 vs £3,000)
Just to be clear - those two lenses work with IBIS? I think it's true that not all Lumix lenses will work together with IBIS, only the newer ones, so it would be good to know. Thanks!
Derrida is a brilliant film about a brilliant man now much fallen out of favour.
...and a nest of cables, more batteries, still no xlr inputs, no option to put it on your shoulder, no decent evf... At the end of the day, it's a DSLR and therefore a pain in the arse to use. The Ursa mini has the picture AND the ergonomics/practicality and there didn't seem to be anything else around at the moment that will give you that, especially at the price.
Anything to save time is worth investigating. Prior to this way of working, I was making transcriptions on paper - by hand! - with timecode references, then going through with a highlighter. This was fine, but obviously cumbersome. In theory I could take the notes away and work on a paper edit in the traditional manner, but I find that having everything together on screen with the footage fits my way of thinking better. I won't be throwing away my notebook, but this way is faster and doesn't rely on the legibility of my deteriorating handwriting.
This is in any case a problem for Premiere too - especially with 4K. I have reverted to transcoding (in AME) to Cineform. Although there is a trade-off in that the file sizes are much bigger, it is worth it to be able to actually scrub through the timeline.
It's fine for Adobe to market PPro (the others too) as being able to handle any codec, but be aware that there are limitations when dealing with some of them. I imagine H.265 is even more problematic!
