I'm shooting video with my Fuji -XT3. I'm using a Metabones Speed Booster and adapting vintage Contax Zeiss C/Y mount lenses.
I'm recording to a Ninja V monitor via HDMI. I'm getting a strange light flicker in the highlights with movement. This is happening in natural light. I'm recording UHD 24p with the shutter set to 1/48.
I also tried 29.97 with 1/60 and it was a little better, not much. Any advice? Do I need to roll down the highlights? Anybody adapting vintage lenses with a speed booster? Thanks.
I spent the last couple weeks throwing tough files (Fuji X-Trans 24MP, Sony 42MP) at the Luminar Jupiter update that was officially released yesterday (12 April) Skylum gave me an advance copy to do the testing so I wrote a review of this new release of Luminar, which I just posted on my blog and was also picked up by PetaPixel.
I did my testing on an averagely equipped laptop and a fast desktop, both Macs. I have been hearing that Windows users aren't seeing speed increases as dramatic as on Mac platform. In case you saw Skylum's charts in their marketing, they make it look faster than my real world tests. But in all fairness, I don't know how they conducted their tests. I did mine with a digital stopwatch.
I also covered most of the other significant changes in the update. BTW, this update is free to current owners of Luminar 2018. In my article I also have links and codes that allow you to piggyback discounts if you have an interest in purchasing or upgrading from the 2017 version. Skylum is also including a bunch of extra freebies, many of which look useful.
Hope you like the review- the data part is empirical but of course I express my opinions about other aspects, both positive and not positive.
I have just received a kipon mount adaptor to mount 4/3 olympus lenses on my XE2S.
The mount is OK but I don't know how to use it and how to position the right parameters on the camera.
Has anyone the experience and could help me ?
Thanks for help.
I've read the manual and executed the simple procedure... but it doesn't work. Going SETUP menu > SCREEN SETUP > FRAMING GUIDELINE gives me the choice of GRID 9 and GRID 24, plus HD FRAMING. When I select any of these, nothing changes. The rear screen and EVF stay grid-free.
Frame lines are pretty essential to me, since I'm using this camera to mount an full frame ultrawide zoom on a shift adaptor for architectural work. Does anybody know a cause or a fix?
You mention VLC, it has the ability to export frames built in to it, just search for VLC export frame and you can find plenty of tutorials for doing that. From the way you have written, it sounds like you are trying to view a 4k video on a 1080p monitor, which is why your screen grab may be coming out as 1080 x 1920.
This thread may help! it lists some other options: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4054568
Thank you for your reply.
I use Windows 10, and I have an editor program called MovAvi in which I was able to save a "snapshot" in the size 1920 x 1080 px which is the same size I can extract if a pause the video in for example VLC player and take a screenshot.
Do you know if 1920 x 1080 px is the largest size I can extract from a 4K video or can I extract a larger size somehow?
