    There’s a few things about his video that I don’t like the first thing is he’s talking about the settings on the camera. But for a “like myself I do not know where the record button was so I had to go to another video online to find it. Also is talking way too fast so it’s hard to follow him. Secondly I don’t like the swearing such as the F word that’s unprofessional. I do like the fact he was very excited about his teaching and he didn’t make it boring. I just think it should slow down a little bit and also show everyone the different settings in video especially for the beginners.

    Hi Beniamin Cool episode but to be really cool for the Poles Better when you say something like: "Siema zapraszam dziś odcinek na wypasie. Więc lecimy z koksem." Maybe your friends from Poland did not mention you, but the words on K ... usually use drunken troglodytes who are respected as a minor-intellectual backwater who can not say anything more interesting. They probably have only 2 crippled gray cells burnt with glue. I am waiting for Sony 7s iii and then it will probably be useful for what you share. So thanks a lot

    slog2 okay, but minimum ISO is then 1600. What to do if you want to film in a sunny day and want to keep that shutter at 1/100 without closing the aperture? Variable ND filter?

    Benjamin thanks for your videos, I understand a lot when you explain, just a question, have you ever tried the Ronin S gimbal on your Sony a6000? I been having so much trouble trying to balance because It is to lightweight, and just want to know if May be you know how to deal with that. KGgo has just one video but the guy just recomended more weight but didn’t show how to.

    h.264 is pretty standard, adaptive high rate as well. 4k or 1080 depending on what your sequence is set at. The rest can remain, a lot of the render at maximum or 2 pass won't help as the camera doesn't have a high enough bitrate for it to do anything. You'll have to colour correct it as it's shot in slog, there's a few great free luts that can get you started or download and learn resolve it's FREE! Lumetri will work as well it's just not as easy or powerful as resolve in my opinion. You have to export the final cut xml out then import it to resolve. Lots of extra steps but it'll make it shine. That's my 2cents!
