Friends. Lots and lots of updates. I will post them eventually, but for now, help is needed BAD. I have the R3 in my hands but the movie Rec size menu does not show 6k RAW or 4k HQ. And, when I set up the camera to shoot proxy simultaneously, I do not get an option to shoot in slow motion. What could I be doing wrong?? The R5 gives me these options easily. (not 6k but 8k RAW. I am attaching files.

I flew Bombay - Los Angeles on Emirates. My layover in Dubai was 15 hours. I discovered a great facility Emirates provides. It provides something called 'Dubai Connect' for passengers with a long layover. It provides a Free visa, a free hotel and a free meal. So if you guys ever find yourself in such a situation, just walk to the Dubai connect counter. :) Here is a view from the free hotel, after I used their free gym while I sipped wine and at dinner.

I flew Emirates and Qatar airways. My strong advice: Do not waste money on buying wifi. It does not work for half the flight and is very slow when it does.

I will write the name of the boom soon. I put the list here for your advice. Also, maybe it could be a checklist for you one day...

The Sony rep informed me that the card reader I have for Canon will not work for Sony. I had no idea that different Cfast cards are made for Sony and Canon!!

CFexpress come in Type A (Sony) and Type B (everyone but Sony?). Type A are physically smaller than Type B. Sorry.

You did not put an microSD card next to the GoPro. Are you planning to share a card between the Drone and the GoPro?

No, that is an oversight. I will have a card for both Drone and GoPro. Thank you for noticing that. I will fix!

Friends. I am going to a post house tomorrow to figure out a few things. Here is the list. Please let me know if you want me to check anything else!

Canon R3:
  • 6k Raw vs Raw light IQ Test
  • Raw light vs 4k-D IQ Test
  • 4k 60 fps vs 4k 120 fps IQ test
Canon R5:
  • 8k RAW vs 8k Raw Light
  • 8k vs 4k HQ
  • 4k HQ vs 4k.
  • 4k 60 fps vs 4k 120 fps IQ test
General:

  • Check Histogram vs actual exposure in RAW (Screen looks too bright when the histogram is exposed to the right.)
  • 30 fps vs 60 fps vs 120 fps - Slow-motion demonstration. 1. Mitain walking and 2. An empty can falling.
  • RAW with and with a log. Does it make sense to add log to RAW?
  • Color Space test: BT.709 VS BT.2020 VS Cinema Gamut
  • Does speeding up 120 fps to 30 fps look bad?

The sequence of Tests:
  • Check Histogram vs actual exposure in RAW (Screen looks too bright when the histogram is good.) (We will then expose accordingly)
  • RAW shooting with Log and without (We will then shoot accordingly for the rest of the above tests)
  • Which colour space works best? (We will then use that colour space for the rest of the above tests)
  • All R5 tests
  • All R3 tests
