"We are aware of an oversight in our Panasonic Image App which allows enabling of V-Log L as a “custom” setting without purchase. This was not our intent, and our apologies for providing customers with a product without intentional crippling of it's built-in abilities"
I love this kind of stuff!
I find when I come back to conventional shooting after doing something weird, I am usually a little more confidant in my editing.
"Always pack underwater housings with feminine hygiene products."
This may be an odd question...but which type? Does it matter?
At a photography and video convention I attended several years ago, a high-end lighting company had a pocket spectroscope as part of their display.
Spectators like myself were invited to look at their LED system through the spectroscope, then compare it to the fluorescent tubes and metal halide lights overhead.
Their LEDs were beautiful and flat, while the house lights were very spiky, with noticeable gaps and spikes.
While playing around with the scope, I remembered that I had a cheap, dollar store LED flashlight in my pocket. So I examined the light output from the flashlight and compared it to the 5 figure price tag system the company was showing off.
The spectrum from the $1 flashlight was the same.
Moral of the story: LEDs give off nice light.
slo-mo limited to 720p
multiple card formats will limitations and lack of compatibility across different modes.
Too low of an ISO for such a slow lens is bound to make indoor/low light shooting suck
Shutter speed that won't switch back after frame rate change
That sounds like a whole lot of deal breakers to me.
If Canon can't compete on dynamic range or low light, it should at least compete on features. Beautiful out-of-camera skin tones alone isn't enough to cut it any more.
I think you have exactly the right attitude.
You know what's worse than having bad sound in your movie?
Not having any movie at all because you were too worried about gear to get out there and shoot!
Best of luck to you.
I'm in a similar situation, and I'm leaning towards abandoning wireless all together and just going with lavs plugged into field recorders that the actors will carry around in their back pockets.
