Re: New Panasonic GH5 Official

I've loved the focusing on the 70D for over 4 years now, but unless Canon is going to offer me the other features at a price point below $3500, I'm out.

Along with dual IS, full 4K, etc, I'm...

Re: GoPro Hero 5 for Weddings

I have the Hero4 Black and will use it for some very random situations, were its small size is a bonus, but not as a main cam.

It really helped its usefulness, though, when I got a narrower lens...

Re: Providing both photos & video with the Panasonic GH5

Is that photo/video bit a different mode than usual video shooting?

I also want to know how its low light compares to something like a 5d Mark iii.

Re: First Impressions of the GH5

I already knew I'd be selling off my Canon gear this year. The Sony A6500 was going to be my pick, but this might be too good to pass up. They also talk about the firmware improvements in the next...

Re: Do My Wedding Packages Make Sense?

David, I've done a couple of 'ceremony only' doc-edits for $500 and been happy. I usually have the edit done by the end of the same day, which is its own kind of bonus. Mostly, though, I think its...

Re: Delete SD cards or format?

Formatting is recommended over deleting, though the difference between the two is actually kind of small:

Deleting merely marks the space as available to write over.

Re: Do My Wedding Packages Make Sense?

Go with two or three packages.
Ditch the 'silver' 'Gold' Platinum' labeling.
I personally don't think the client cares about the number of cameras.

I focus on:
hours of coverage

Re: New Sony A6500

I'm a Canon shooter, and had hoped this would be the camera that would get me into 4K, but it looks like the touchscreen isn't for the focusing? WTH?

Re: Timelapse of audience arriving at an event.

If you shoot stills for the time lapse instead of video, then in post you could digitally zoom to achieve the zoom movement effect, or just have the option of reframing.

Why is that?

Because of no articulating screen?

Re: 4K Footage from 1DXII

This is the one with touch screen focusing, isn't it?

That is a difference maker for me. I have it on my 70D and love it. My next camera will almost certainly have to have it, too.

The moment I'm referring to is the vows. We each have a close-up, over the shoulder shot of our respective bride or groom. Camera 3 has the medium/wide shot from the aisle. That means no reactions...
