Thanks David. The Sigma 35 f1.4 Art is one of my favorite lenses. I used ambient light + one white foam core board as a reflector only.

Oh, I also just adjusted the contrast on the upper portion of the wine glass so the thumbnail in your post won't show now.

This is a blend of two images. I blended in the bubbles from an earlier shot that had dissipated by the time I took the final shot.

Here's a shot of an unnamed lake (8523) that is almost directly on the other side of the mountains in Angel of Depth's shot. (Multiple vertical shots at 18mm FF equiv and a mega stitch in LR!) Funny story...I was off trail and headed for a different lake. Ended up going up the wrong drainage. Fortunately there's no shortage of incredible lakes and scenery in the Idaho backcountry!

Thanks Gene! We saw tons. They were in there but we didn't bring a rod on that hike. Not really sure why we didn't? I tend to space things from time to time. :-P

Thanks Lee! I've been pretty on/off with photography this summer. I'll have a few to share soon. ;-)a

And right there, you have a subject that I don't really have access to ;)

Lol yeah, Bristol is much too nice to have such an ugly scene anywhere ;) :p

I took this shot of the Moon at 8:13 this evening. It was still 95° outside at the time (The high was 113.3°.) I'm surprised it turned out this sharp.

Question for Charlie - I see you like using the S&Q mode on Sony. Does the reduced bitrate not bother you? Vs shooting at a higher FPS and slowing in post?

I haven’t used my Sony for video yet but trying to learn the ins and outs of it before I start using it for that. Just been using the Osmo, Mavic and GoPro Up until now for video

I use S&Q for time lapses, not for slow motion, and yes, lower IQ and inconsistency bothers me, but it’s quick and simple (1p video, A7siii solves this silly flaw, and many more). I do all slowdowns in post with DR, so C1 is mapped to 4K 24 100mbps, C2 to 1080 120 100mbps (this mode bothers me as well, but I love it), I refuse to be stuck in S&Q and lose audio (Panasonic high framerate options wasted On me).

If only I can commit to one sensor size, the large full frame is just so nice, and I typically have either the insta 360 or GoPro with me for a secondary, but don’t use it unless I want a speciality shoot or in water

Thanks Charlie, I hadn’t even considered s&Q for time lapse. Whilst I’ve never shot any video with my Sony’s, I ended up watching some YouTube videos last night on the a7siii and now want one :D . I know it’s GAS and I won’t be buying one but man it looks good. One of the videos I watched the guy was filming another guy in pitch darkness and his face was only lit with his iPhone screen and the IQ was outstanding. Didn’t look grainy at all

Edit - so your 1080 at 120 is only for 5x slo mo when required? And if so how do you use it in a 4K project if it doesn’t have the required pixels?

Edit 2 - I just realised I shoot 2.7k on my GoPro (for linear mode) and mix it with 4K footage fine. Not sure why that works but it seems to

Charlie, another question (sorry), I’m heading on a week long cycle trip tomorrow with my mate and I’m taking my a7riii/16-35 for stills but will also be taking the drone, GoPro and osmo pocket. I’ll be shooting in 4K/24 on all of them but there are some modes on the drone where it forces me to use 4K/30. I’ll be using DaVinci Resolve to edit when I’m back. What’s the best way to incorporate the 30 footage into the 24 project? Do I just need to accept the binned frames or is there a more elegant way to do it?

Thanks!

if you need audio, then keep the footage as is, if not, drop to 80% slowdown, it's a slightly slower slow motion and it looks nicer.

Edit - so your 1080 at 120 is only for 5x slo mo when required? And if so how do you use it in a 4K project if it doesn’t have the required pixels?

All the 1080 is auto upscaled, I understand the IQ loss everytime I use it (DR is hit pretty hard), and it's worth the hit. Almost all of my long zoomed in shots are in 1080 120, it's perfectly divisible to 24p, so I can either slow down 20% or 40%, or keep as is. There's something about longer focal lengths and slow mo that I love.... well, just slow mo in general. It's an easy way to "cheat" when you dont have quite enough footage, and need to stretch things out just a bit. It makes your push in's or slide left/right shots extra smooth. The 1080 120-> 4K 120 is easily my most sought after upgrade, and the low light dual gain ability means I can do 4K 60 in low light without butchering IQ too much. And the high bitrates should help keep the footage looking harmonious.... ***hopefully. The Active stability is also something I'm really wanting, very good on the ZV-1, and I'll be very happy with that on the S3.
