When you talk about native ISO, you say 1250, but write 2500. :)) Great video!
Damn such a smooth AD transition😂😂
dynamic range is everything for video - I'd say.
I mean... dynamic range, and the handling of both highlights and the darker areas is what makes a video that extra bit of cinematic look (besides of course the physical lighting skills), right?
By FAR the best review about this camera and Flog/Flog2. Please let us know your Braw experience with this camera. I'm thinking to get Video Asist 12G, But some people are talking about hot pixels they get. I wonder if you had the same experience.
4wMmiAztkHU&t=10m53s 10:53 maybe with a monitor it won't be like that
Me: I know cameras
Gerald: so the Dynamic range at these settings is .2 stops of light different than this setting, but if you……
I think Fuji XH2S, XH2, XT5, XS20, Nikon Z9 / Z8, Panasonic S5IIX and Canon R8 are the cameras that are changing the price / quality ratio for good. And i think until 2025 we will have a lot of new relases that will change the camera market
If using Ninja V to record ProRes from XH2S set to video range and flog2 - should Ninja V be set to legalize or not?
Really great review, is it right to suppose that -3 for NR and sharpness = no processing and not software softnening? On Sony I remember lower value was not usable as camera forced soft picture and not unprocessed picture. And what about video levels on H265, better full range? However thank you for this deep and technical useful review.
Gerald does this apply to photography also.
Then sort It after and you get a clean image with no resolution loss.
Gerald, love your technical review as always, it's one of the reasons I bought this camera and truely fall in love with recording video. Don't know if you still have this camera or not, I was wondering if you can test the externally recorded braw output, consider blackmagic update their braw sdk, and it works perfectly on Panasonic S5IIX. In my experience with X-H2S braw though, I notice that the camera doesn't output log image to recorder, rather a graded image, camera hdmi setting show PROVIA(camera and hdmi), so the exposure tools recorders have are not working properly. Also, when recording raw externally, the iso range is restricted between 1000 and 12000(just like in the HLG mode, strange), and it seems like this applied to all the fuji camera that can recording braw, including the newer X-S20.
Gerald, your reviews are truly excellent. I think you strike an impressive balance of technical details and advice for real world practical application, as well as some subjective impressions mixed in, but you always give context to subjective remarks so that it’s super easy to gauge how relevant a certain aspect of a piece of kit would be for one’s own application. I’m absolutely amazed once again.
And this how the "Dream Kit" get in 13min 2x destroyed. This should be in every news attached. (Not working ProRes Raw output, dead pixel not fixable, Ninja V+ not workout correctly, not fixable Compression in chroma channels etc, etc, etc)
Color issues not fixable with this generation of X-Trans CMOS 5 HS sensor:
This are very serious problems and every should be aware!
Just out of curiosity, why did you choose h265 instead of pr422hq for the dr test? @geraldundone
Okay, data level question. Since I work in Resolve, I can specify full levels even on a ProRes clip (though it will auto to video levels). Is there any advantage to doing this? Do I gain anything using "full"? It sounds like there would be more precision in full, but maybe I am misunderstanding. Is full vs video just two different ways of mapping the exact same info?
i wish he would review the autofocus again after the firmware update
When you mention doing NR in post with DaVinci Resolve, were you specifically using the basic NR available in the free version or the fancier ones in the paid? (I guess this question applies to your other reviews too)
11/10 content as usual. Would you be able to explain "full range" vs "video range" and how that interacts with various codecs in a future video? Information on the subject seems to be sparce!
Another amazing scientific analysis. Thank you. I just got the X-H2S, and coming for an X-T4 I was overwhelmed with the video codecs and compression rates just like you described, and also noticed that FLOG2 is noisier than FLOG. Can you recommend a reference for what bit rates are needed vs frame rates for the various codecs? That would be helpful. Also, would exposing to the right in FLOG2 reduce the noise in your opinion? Many thanks.
