    The XC10 is £700-800 on eBay. Some restrictions, for sure, but a few good tricks including great stabilised lens and generous codec.

    The best examples of camera footage seem like they’re really just good examples of colour use, location, camera movement, nice grading, some effort towards ‘casting’, planning, etc.

    Thanks Pidulgi. Is that the Hedbox NPF plate? How do you find the battery life and performance with this set-up?
    Do you need both batteries, or can you hot swap?

    I think the H6 has a headphone output and separate mini-jack line out. I imagine there won’t be much difference between the internal Zoom recording and a line-out version to the camera, if levels are...

    Good news and quite surprising. If there’s no latency at all, perhaps they changed the headphone output to monitor the actual mic inputs?

    I would recommend keeping the camera you like (BMPCC, great camera) and returning the camera you don't like.

    At the risk of sounding unhelpful, one obvious reason for this is because the different shots have been labelled. I wonder if you might be allowing yourself to slip into confirmation bias?

    Alas, no hot-swapping. The whole tray is removed to replace any batteries.

    Despite being less elegant, I feel an NPF plate with cable is still better, allowing much more capacity and keeping the...

    I only used an early version of the 4.6k for a weekend, but also noticed limited available gain from the mic amps. Much less gain available than C100mkii preamps, for example. Perhaps this was...

    C-stand maintenance advice

    Here’s a dull one... I picked up some used Kupo C-stands. The top riser section of one is loose. It seems to be the whole ‘clamping’ section where the tightening bolt attaches which is loose. The top...

    Hmmm, I've shot with this latency issue before and it just doesn't work for me.

    I suppose there might be a DI box with suitable output as a clunky solution.

    I think there are things we expect to give up from ‘proper’ cameras - EVF, ND, etc - but input monitoring shouldn’t be one.

    ^ This is really bad news for me. The main reason I didn’t buy the 4.6k (and went Canon) is because of audio monitoring latency. If you’re fortunate enough to shoot with a crew and off camera sound,...
