    • Sony a7 (the first one)
      I'm using a 7d so I think that even if the quality is not top notch it would be still an upgrade    @bron I've seen your videos, "behind the photo" is really great, nice work!  
    • Canon XC10 versus Sony RX10 III. The Canon is underrated!
      This camera is meant to be used in automatic modes. Andrew is spot on about that. Only use manual in controlled shooting circumstances, interviews, etc, where you're in full charge of lighting.  I prefer TV mode for outside shooting. In full manual I tend to program the ISO to the wheel and ride it. But outside the in-camera ND is not sufficient in bright sun like we have here in Texas. If you rely only on it you will miss lots of shots due to over exposure. The best result I get with the least angst in harsh sun is to put the nd on, shoot in TV mode, and add a Tiffen Variable ND on the lens. I try to minimize riding the  shutter on the wheel in TV mode by making quick adjustments with the Variable ND. The results I've gotten has worked just fine and I lose very few shots due to exposure issues. I also set my Zebra to 70 IRE and that helps me gauge my highlights. Setting the Zebra at 100 IRE--well, once you hit that you've already screwed the pooch and shot a lot of unusable footage. As far as a clean image, C-log will not allow you to shoot below 500 ISO. But all the other modes allow you to shoot at very low ISO--150, etc. If clean is what you want avoid C-log, especially in darker shots. But that's little worry in bright outside shooting. There is issue is blowing out your highs. Ergo, I always shoot in C-log outside, and it does a very credible job of preserving highlights and details in brighter areas like clouds, etc.  Again, it's really too bad Canon did not include a histogram or waveform in this camera. I rely on the waveform a lot to get good exposure. Make me a little crazy that Canon do not do some very simple things, like include a waveform in the EVF of the C100 mk II as well as the LCD. I'm always having to take my eye from the EVF to check the LCD for exposure on the waveform when shooting hand held. What a waste of time and energy---and then you lose your shot. Fap!
    • Sony a7 (the first one)
      Freestyle scootering is a relative new sport so no shame there  Thanks for the compliments! Yeah i think pretty much every camera made after (and) the 5d mark iii is good enough for most people, no needs to think that you need clinicly sharp NX1 4k to make an amazing video.  Where the Sony A7 shines is with shallow dof stuff, like the 2016 setup video. It highlightes the awesomeness of the amazing full frame sensor and with the background being blured out you escape all the moire aliasing stuff.
    • A7s Sensor Size?
      Is a medium format focal  reducer coming? :-D
