In Topic: Any LX10 in the wild?

20 October 2017 - 04:40 AM

The LX10 would be considered as an "Upgrade" if you are want to shoot macro 4K video because the crop factor would make it about 108mm. For the LX100, the macro 4K video is only around 87mm after crop factor. In term of setup, the LX10 gives you the most bang for the buck because the complete housing, tray and vacuum can be purchased for US$1250.


The LX100 complete setup could be expensive for point and shoot:

- Housing: $1200

- 67mm short port: $180

- Flip diopter (it's the only way you can use macro diopter) $220

- Flexitray II: around $250

- Vacuum valve: $220


If you are new to UW video/photo, I would say the LX10 is a good starting setup and is budget friendly.

Wait until late October, rumor said that the GTX 1070 Ti is coming out, it has a lot more CUDA core than the existing GTX 1070. My old card (GTX 750Ti) only have 640 CUDA and I can't preview 4K timeline. Once I switch to 1070, which has 1920 CUDA core, preview 4K video on timeline is awesome. The 1070 Ti should have 2304 CUDA core. I know CUDA core is critical for older version of Davinci as well.

Looks like you just need to upgrade the GPU. Nvidia card is good for Premiere. I haven't try Davinci yet as they said the new version is more efficient.

Just curious, what kind of machine are you guys using? I'm using a 5 years old Intel i7 PC (Windows 7) with Premiere Pro. When I put in the Nvidia GTX1070 (US$400) early this year, it made a huge different in preview 4K clips on 4K timeline. I don't do any of the sharpening stuff, but color correcting and motion give smooth play back during timeline preview. Something to consider as the GPU is not terribly expensive.

The recommendation is to put your 4K clips onto 1080p timeline because the performance/editing experience is smoother:



I don't output to 1080p so I can't speak for personal experience.
