      The larger 4k capable video assist?
    • 1DC vs 1DX II Shootout
      See that little tiny edge enhancement/digital sharpening in the 1DXII 4K neutral vs 1DC neutral?  Even at neutral the 1DXII sadly addes the new Canon modification of the Picture Style algorithm making 0 Sharpness setting equivalent to +1 in older cameras. The new modification started with the Canon 650D, 700D, 100D, and all the subsequent models.  I guess it works making users perceive higher resolution.  This mod is what makes the 1DXII look different and not as filmic as the 1DC, plus the higher dynamic range that's more filmic while the 1DXII clips highlights digitaly, plus of course the filmic monochromatic grain vs digital RGB 'noise', plus of course the Gamma of C-Log, all contribute to a much more film-like and more appealingly image to me.  But still, the 1DXII is putting out a hell of an image. Can be used for basically any application and create an awesome 4K film! Plus that sharp 120p surprised me.    That's exactly the test I needed Luke,  I'll get the 1DC now. Made my decision for me when I am setting on my  couch! Thank you ALOT. You're a very valuable addition to the forum.           
    • Cheap wide
      Good to know that the Rokinon 12mm is a good lens. I was looking at the Cine version in micro 4/3 for my BMMCC. 
    • Cheap wide
      Yeah I agree, the Roki 12mm f2 is awesome, and for me, it's the obvious choice for an ultra-wide on NX cameras. It's very small and lightweight, and of course it's f2! I used to own the 10-18mm, loved it, but had to sell it for the same reasons as Ricardo, as sadly it's just unusable with fly-by-wire adapted. I also briefly owned the sigma 10-20mm, which I bought to replace the canon, it was fine, but too slow for my needs. The rokinon 12mm f2 is both very sharp and very fast! Awesome for steadicam stuff (including low light) and astrophotography as well. For me the extra stop was more useful than the zoom and 1 millimeter more width of the tokina 11-16 (the rokinon is also cheaper.) 

      If all you care about is the widest glass you can possibly get, there is also the Sigma 8-16mm, which I believe is the widest rectilinear glass ever made for crop cameras. I've never used it, but it's fairly pricey and I have heard it's not the sharpest lens. You never know though!

      Rolling shutter is about 50% of 1DC.
