I was pretty much a lock for these – but then Rode release their GO... Two Rode GO channels go for a minimum of 400$, but then you still have to buy lavs. The Deity Duo RX also offer a bit more operation control + hard case. Very similar price points for products that hit a lot of the same targets, despite differences. Tough choice.
Total overkill and priced to match. Want it – will never have it.
With a production budget of 275 million $, and worldwide box office of 392 million $, Solo is without a doubt a money losing venture for Disney. You have to factor in marketing (easily 150 million) and that the studio only gets a little over half the box office, on average. It's not a total catastrophe, but close. Factor in the expectations that come with an origin story for one of the most beloved, iconic characters in fiction, in the most valuable franchise in history, and Solo is definitely a bitter disappointment for those involved.
Or just use Final Cut with the the most responsive scrubbing (no holding the mouse down) and totally care-free ripple edits (magnetic baby!). It's not just for rough cuts, it's for whatever.
But good tip, for when I'm forced back into Premiere on a project...
The sensor size has nothing to do with whether or not a log recording format is suitable. The sensor performance (dynamic range capability) and most importantly data throughput (8-bit, 10-bit, more) is what decides how aggressive/flat the Log can be (you don't want to suck out saturation and contrast that you can't recover in post). You don't want the "real" VLOG just because it's on the higher end cameras, you want the log format thad is tailored to your cameras capabilities.
And clearly the "only true advantage" of the S1 over the GH5 is massive difference in sensor size and the aesthetic that comes with that, and presumably the inherently better noise/low-light ability that comes with a full-frame sensor. Some of that advantage is subjective, of course.
This is a bit of a side note, but following the discussion here in the comment section I'd like to state this clearly:
There are two (often overlapping) cases for buying a Mac
a) You seriously prefer MacOS to Windows.
b) You use FCPX.
If you are primarily a DaVinci or Premiere user (or other Adobe fair), just buy a PC and get about 40% better performance for your $.
If you have already invested in a Mac, learn to love FCPX, and you will make up that 40% performance and then some with optimisation (and you will also edit faster because it's better designed, but that's a more controversial statement).
Apple does not make great hardware for professionals, haven't for years, this is a fact. FCPX is the sole reason for video professionals to stick with them, but it is a compelling reason.
