DIt doesn't matter what sensor size the lens is on. It's not like the pupil entrance changes size if you put a lens on a different format.
If i use a light meter it gives me iso value, shutterspeed and aperture value.
If i use this on a full frame canon say 5dmk3 with the 24-105 F/4 lens
And if i entered the same value on the 70d with the same lens, i will get the same exposed picture.
It is the first time I heard this wisdom, i have to check it out but i doubt if it is true.
Dji should bring an modified version of the this camera on the market, with an aperture.
Iam willing to pay extra to get a camera with aperture controle on the phantom 3.
Iam shooting 24 frames and need to keep the shutter at 1/50 constant. It is a bad thing to use the ISO for getting the right exposure or even the ND's for that matter. The quality of the ND glass may ruin your shot!
You just mentioned your self, you are closing down the aperture when using steady cam, this camera is wide open at f2.8
Every camera man want to control the aperture. This camera doesnot have an aperture.
The X5 has because it is more or less in fact an GH4, is a real camera. DJI SAW THEIR MISTAKE IN MAKING A GOOD CAMERA WITHOUT AN APERTURE. THE CAMERA ON THE PHANTOM 3 or inspire need to be used with ND filters to get acceptable pro results.
Perhaps, I hope, there is a hidden feature in the camera that can be activated to give t an aperture.
This is a toy camera. No apperture. Very amateuristic.
