Thanks. Doing videos as a hobby and coming from painting background, I am more like an artist rather than a programmer. There are many things related to technical stuff which I don't really understand, but it's nice I can learn from people here.

Unfortunately, I don't use Resolve anymore. I stick to Final Cut Pro. But maybe one day I may revert.

I see.. and why don't use 16:9 instead, it can be cropped to 2:1, 2.35:1 or any ar right?
because 16:9 is 1.78 bigger than 2:1 or 2.35:1 and you have more room to adjust in post without crop IMO

btw may I have some MLV clips of yours? few frames is fine. just for my test. thanks.

I use 16:9, too, but in 3x3. We have more room in that mode. But in 1x3, the 16:9 has crop. When I want to use it for 2.35:1, I have to crop even more. The sweet spot is 2:1 at 4.8K. Very minimum crop and can be adjustable to 16:9 or 2.35:1.

Ouch, as for MLV files, I never keep them too long. Like once I finish a project, I always delete the MLVs. I can share MLVs for my next shots.

Oh Prores on youtube, cause youtube exept Rec709 color space, how different is your export from the encoded Vp09 youtube file please  ? Id really like to know that, would you share your orignal export via WeTransfer or SwissTransfer if that's not a problem for you please ?

Edit: Maybe if you grade in Rec709 color space while exporting ProRes444 I guess It would be the same ?

I don't really understand the math or technical stuff behind the codecs etc, but Prores 4444 was for my MLVapp and Final Cut Pro export, and the file size is huge. For uploading, I converted it to h264. You can get the video file which I used for uploading to youtube here:

nice grading.. do you use lut?

2.2:1 ar is better I think..

Thank you. The reason I use 2:1 is because it is more flexible to crop to either 2.35:1 or 16:9. With 2.2:1, the height is is too short so I will need to crop more if I want to use it as 16:9.

Yes, I used Phantom LUTs for these shots.

Look great ! I love especially the shots of the parrots and cats, did you stabilize it on Davinci, and delivery codec H265 automatic bitrate ?

Thank you. I don't use Davinci. Yes, I added stabilization in Final Cut Pro and exported in prores 4444.
In 1x3 mode, at 2:1 aspect ratio, with the 4.8K (highest) preset, I find that the image quality vs crop factor vs frame rate is in the sweet spot, making it flexible to change your ratio to 16:9 or 2.35:1.

Here are some shots I took during the weekend in 2:1

Thank you. Yes, you're right. The only downside in the hi-re modes is the rolling shutter. Actually in a well-planned situation, tripod and gimbal will be the best tools. However my shooting is always spontaneous: I hang the camera on my neck with me, and whenever I see interesting stuff I took some images.
So I did some shots again with the Crop Mood, and I think 1x3 at the highest res is the sweet spot for 16:9. Less crop, too. Have a great weekend, everyone.

Thank you. Still learning with the new build.

Yesterday, I reinstalled Crop Mood after uninstalling the build last month due to the 1080p not working, which -- I finally learned -- was caused by the Canon focus settings. Now, really enjoy this build so much, and I think I will shoot 16:9 more often. Here are some shots from yesterday.

Hi! very nice video :) are you using an anamorphic adapter on some shots?

Hi. Thanks. The anamorphic look was created with an oval cutout attached to the lens.

Now I want to go to Bali  :D
Great images and butterly smooth movements, did you record all that handheld?

Hey, thanks for the question. The footage was all recorded handheld with the help of my neck strap to add tension so it could be less shaky. And for the wide shots, including fake drone shots, they were taken with DJI Pocket 2, a tiny pocket camera that has gimbal built in.

@spidiq8 thanks you. And thanks to this little camera + Magic Lantern. A very nice combination.
@dpjpandone Thank you, Jon. The shots that used dual ISO are cafe shots, my son in the swimming pool, dancing lady, and some more I can't remember.
@Mike54 thank you. This little camera is really amazing.

True. I always use creative adjustments on slog3 with dark strength at 0.
