How to set clip number in a7s2 sir...
Thanks a lot as it's really helpful to learn and set up fast and properly all the necessary setting.
How do you get the camera to recognize external audio? Need it for movie making for clean reference.
no slog for filming?
Incredibly helpful! Thank you!
Thanks for sharing - really hits the important stuff, good man!
Good video and helpful 👌🔥
I have a zoom lens and it doesn't let me film in 4k without getting a vignette. What would be the Record Setting be for XAVCS HD be, as they are totally different record settings.
@chinfat Thank you!
Realize that you need to have a lens that is built for full frame. 4K on the Sony uses the full frame, so only lenses that are full frame will not vignette on the sensor.
Thank You !
Thanks a lot :)
NICE Man. Great Job. Good Audio, and a very detailed explanation. Nick
Brilliant tutorial! Thank you!
I was under the assumption that S.Gamut was only useful for Log profiles and not Cine profiles. Am I missing something here?
You are correct. I didn't realize I said that. Oops... must correct.
Enjoyed the video, very thorough. Question...unfortunately my computer doesn’t support 4K or the HD strangely. So, I’m using AVCHD/24P 24M (FX) should I change that setting or any that you mentioned in your video for filmmaking? Thanks!
Just transitioned from Canon to Sony. That was super helpful. Thank you!
I've been struggling with my Sony RX10 ii... trying to figure out all the sub menu's and their best settings. Thank you for your detailed and clear explanation!
I love you
Hi, I was wondering what lens this is. I'm guessing Samyang or Rokinon. I spotted the "made in korea". also focal length and T stop?
This is a Rokinon Cine lens. I believe it is a 50mm FL. The T-Stop is 1.5 (fairly fast lens). Here is the series of primes: www.adorama.com/rkdscfbc.html?gclid=CjwKCAiAhp_jBRAxEiwAXbniXYv7o3uWr6LTAIzCMEO3TFRqfql-u7Fb7Cy_XukYhEGzGfqsfJc4fBoCBbQQAvD_BwE
Thanks a lot you give to me some answers i was looking for it.
This is pure gold! Thanks so much for putting in all the work. You've helped me out so much.
Thanks, very helpful.
What brand matte box is that
It's a Redrock Micro. I prefer Tilta. Much better quality.
Thank you for being a helpful human. Don’t ever change.
Thanks Iron Man, this was helpful!
Great instructional video! Thank you.
Great video, just unboxed my a7S ii and skimmed through the manual and was still lost, your video explanation helped a lot.
whats the thing around the lens called...that big black square thing
The Matte Box?
What micro Sd card is best for this set up?
This is the kind of contect that I like. Keep it up!🙋🏿
Thanks for the video, but I'm shocked that a filmmaker with this setup doesn't turn off AWB. 4:23 and other times.
Yes. It will do that while in auto. I changed it to manual and dialed in the Kelvin temperature. So... we're settled here?
I watched all but the last few minutes. But at 4:17 (sorry, off my a few seconds) your camera (that is shooting the A7sII) clearly changes from a cold white balance to a warm one.
I do shut off AWB every time. My mantra? "Manual everything. Auto NOTHING." At 9:38 and 14:55, I show how to change the color temp. I am shocked you did not watch the entire video before leaving your comment.
Hey what a great video and such an excellent camera. Im on a budget and had to settle for the a7ii for now. i understand i cannot shoot 4k, but if i tried to implement this as much as possible on the a7ii do you think it would still shoot decent orrr am i just fucked?
Most Sony mirrorless cameras are very similar in the way the menu and setup are concerned. I'd recommend shooting some test footage and color grading it first, if you're using S-Log. Especially before you do a big shoot.
Great info! I have a A7s but in PP7, there are no further settings I can choose. In custom setting, there is no Movie option I can set in the center button. Damn!
Steve Wright does Sony lol
joke. your voice sounds like the comedian Steve Wright.
While I was doing all this my battery died and when I put a new one in all the settings I had changed were reset and I had to change them all over. This is my first sony. Why doesnt it save settings? Is there some magic button to press after this is all done or do I need to do this with every new battery? Other than this issue your video helped a lot.
Man, this guy is very familiar with his camera and information!Thankfully my 10 years as a photographer and recent dabbling in video has given me some knowledge of the terminology or I'm pretty sure I'd be left in the dust! Great info! Tx for sharing!
Awesome!! Thank you!
lol let me save you some time. Buy an FS7. This dinky rig looks hilarious.
Found the filmmaking snob
Save some time? How about save some money? An FS7 body costs near $7,000. That would double the amount I put into this setup. And the FS7 (as great as a camera as it is), does not have the low-light capability that the a7sII has. I use this camera for low-light film and documentary shooting. I use the RED Helium 8K camera for the shoots where there is significantly more lighting being done and we need the higher resolution. Look ridiculous? Yes.Does it work? Incredibly well. So who gives a crap about how it looks.
Wow, really good video.
Thanx, very useful
Extremely good tutorial! Thank you.
did anybody ever tell you that you sound just like Tony Stark? Great video , thanks for the help!
Nelson Smith hahaha yeah!
Listening to this again, you're right. The inflections are very similar. It's Stark without snark.
I've been told a few times, yes. Thanks for watching.
what is this atmos he keeps talking about? Just curious if someone can post a link.
It's an external recorder which records higher color bit depth and gives an increased dynamic range. The internal card compresses the footage and you lose color information. It also works as a large HD viewing monitor. www.atomos.com/shogun-inferno
Very helpful. Thanks!
NIce video! Just I was wondering do you think the cine profiles are usable without atomos? Grading with premiere I found very hard to get a decent result, especially in outside footage they came up with weird colors. Thanks
I love how you start very very (almost too) simple and get more and more into the hidden details. Good video :)
Hey, thanks for this video, really helpful. What lens was on the camera? You might have said it in the video, but I haven't finished it yet.
Okay good to know, thanks
I do have the full kit. I would recommend a couple of zoom lenses for documentary, instead of primes. Something in the line of a 25-70 and a 70-200. Then you won't be swapping lenses with primes. Primes are better for slowly composed shots, while zooms are much better for being on the run. Primes are good for doc, if you are shooting interviews, since there's not a ton of moving around.
Do you have the whole kit? (24, 35, 50, 85) and what lenses would you recommend under 1200 dollar.I will primairly use the lenses for documentairy's and (car) event video's. So for the car video's an AF lens would be nice, but for the documentairy I would rather MF.I am going to a big car event in Norway this August, would you buy the A7 III for that event or wait a little longer for the A7s III? ( I have a Canon 80d, but I don't like the low light and the bad dynamic range).Thanks for your time :)
Not sure on the focal length. It may be 50mm... but it is a Rokinon Cine DS lens that is made for the full frame Sony.
how bout af/mf/ael buttons
Thank you for this comprehensive instructional and for not showing your face for 20 mins instead of the actual thing you are talking about.
Yah, well detailed tutorial.
Let me say to you, that I am shaking in a nervous crisis in a bathroom of the sound stage I am currently filming as cinematographer because ALL of my life i´ll been working on canon, I get to to work today and my client says I want to use this camera, and my face goes jaw dropping, my answer was okey but i have never shoot with camera, and he says but you can do it right? and O say oh yeah !! let me go to the bathroom, so I am here trying (urgent) to find a video on youtube that could help and woooow !! here comes the magic, GOD bless you for doing this valuable video this is amazing thanks a lot, you literally saved my life.
GDN Records sounds like a right nightmare
JAJAJAJAJ SO FUN
happening to me now! hahahahaha
how did it turn out? As a canon user i bet you had issues with colors? :)
cant believe im just finding your channel. so pleased you said auto nothing, manual everything. you had my sub at that point. much respect
Hi, great video! Just wondering which lens are you using here. Thanks
Thank you for such an amazing tutorial. This is a really useful video. Especially the Spot Metering option which finally helped me get my exposure right on the histogram. Never knew it existed or how to get to it.
Thank you. it was helpful.
Thanks for the great video. Have you ever tried to match the A7sII with the FS5? Any recommendations on picture profile settings, other than S-log?
Great suggestion, thanks
I have not tried to mix those cameras. What software are you using to color grade? You can put a chip chart in front of the cameras (often times on the back of a slate) and it makes it easier to match-- especially in Resolve.
Very helpful! Thank you!
