All decent gimbals are £200+, it's not a simple thing to do and cheap ones show why. The Karma grip is worth the money IMO, purely as it controls the GoPro, I think a few others do too but not sure on Hero 5 integration.
None of these stabilisers will instantly give you good usable footage, they're an aid not a magic fix. You need to actually try, but they can be used well. Obviously none do up/down stabilisation, DJI do a Z-Axis add on that has half decent results though.
A6000 is a cracking camera, I used it professionally for video use for the last year until only this week upgrading to the A6500.
Always get proper mounts, it's just not worth the risk, they're cheap anyway.
Faster lens can work, Sigma do some decent APS-C primes, their 30mm is pretty nice...
Any of them will work fine, although FCP X runs quicker than both of them, as it's more optimised.
A quad core, 16GB of RAM and a dedicated GPU would all be on my wishlist (and things my current one has), so you'd be looking at a 15" as the rest are all integrated GPU only.
Downloaded it today, UI is much better from what I've played with, much needed catch up with Premiere Pro. Not sure why you'd need to spend money on training for it, pretty much everything is in the same place, icons haven't hugely changed etc.
From what I've seen as the Mavic has slowly got in the hands of reviewers, the Karma has no chance of matching it as a drone, for flying ability or image quality.
Karma really does look like it's designed for people who are deep in the ecosystem, more amateur stuff.
It's possible the delay is...
The Mavic Pro has sensors and a lot more technology that should make it easier to fly, the GoPro is a more complete package IMO with the controller with screen built in, and the fact the gimbal is removable and the camera can be used for other things.
I haven't yet seen any comparisons of Mavic...
The mere fact you can use the Karma's gimbal standalone, and of course the GoPro itself, means I feel the Karma is the better choice for me. The Phantom 4 is probably still the best for overall image quality (in the consumer price range) but something's always put me off them.
I don't like the...
Really disappointed with this release, reviews might tell a different story but I just can't upgrade to a camera that cannot do 4K/60, it just doesn't seem worth it to me.
It might be great stills wise but honestly other than more DR my 5D3 does just fine, I was really hoping they'd take this...
Bowens stands, but along with the reflectors they'd be sold on as they're part of a kit.
I haven't seen Godox do a kit like my Bowens one that includes reflectors and stands and a case for a 2 head system.
My current system works fine, it's just basic, two heads running off one battery pack...
I've not heard of either of them but I'll take a look, I didn't realise they were rebranded as Pixapro too.
Photomart are doing a great price on them too, TTL version AD600Bs for £500!
Biggest hurdle for me oddly is that if I was to sell my Bowens kit I'd still need to buy a case, stands and...
Thinking about picking up an 18-105 f4, the extra range would be nice along with fixed aperture. Got a VPR1 which will make using it with the Ronin a lot easier once I find a decent way to mount it. It can control zoom so the 18-105's Power Zoom would be a nice feature as well.
So far still...
I've got a 1560 with dividers and organiser, absolutely top notch. Love knowing everything is safe/secure, chuck it in the boot or wherever I am.
Do want a 1510 for when I'm travelling a bit lighter though!
Rather than the weight of the rig pushing/pulling on the cup evenly, all the force is pushing downwards, peeling the cups topside away, in the exact same motion that you use to remove the cups suction.
Glass is perfectly safe by the way.
