    • Zoom recommendation for video?
      A used Canon 24 - 105 is a really nice all around lens. You can use this for a variety of shoots, really goo for documentary shooting with the IS. F4 is a bit slow so it really shines in outdoor settings. The Sigma 18 - 35 is good as well.  It really depends what camera. If you're shooting handheld or on a rig, image stabilization will be huge.
    • 1DC vs 1DX II Shootout
      What's the use of a new sensor that has a worse image? 

      Obviously this is a video website so we do not speak/care about the stills performance, because both are good enough for us to shoot our occasional still with.

      The sensors we're talking about here sre the 4096x2160 windows of the 1DXII & 1DC Sensors. The 1DC sensor had more dynamic range, better detail reproduction without digital look and cleaner noise floor with much less RGB noise, and it's a bigger sensor. The 1DXII sensor has a faster readout meaning less rolling shutter and 60p framerate. 

      So the 1D c sensor is better in almost everyway (though marginally), newer or older. 

      That doesn't take away from the awesomeness of the DPAF pixels and the 60p and that surprisngly sharp 120p. The XII is a better overall camera as a whole for 99% of shooters yet the 1Dc seems to be the special one for film people looking for that extra mile of image niceness. Better for films and cinema applications. It's like a different nicer film stock. It's obvious noe in these images exactly what i suspected watching their footage. Just, different. And xI'll definitelytrade the AF and 60p for the better, more emotionally engaging to me. I just ADORE viewing Anything I shot on that camera. Haven't got this feeling sinve I first shot large sensor 5DII and how I just adored everything I shot with it and shot at f/1.8 all the time!

      What I would do: • wait a couple weeks....IF Apple announces new laptops at their WWDC, hopefully recharging will be via USB-C           (then there should be many more battery options than currently with MagSafe) • get a 12.9" iPad Pro and connect via TwoMonUSB           (four speakers are built into iPad Pro 12.9" or 9.7", but only 9.7" has DCI-P3 gamut)
    • 120 FPS - Sony a7s II vs others
      The NX1 is really nice if you give it enough light. Get up in the 800-2000 range and things get mushy (haven't done a bunch of specific tests though). At very low ISOs it's really very crisp. Good budget alternative, since you can stick many different lenses on the NX with its tiny flange distance. 
    • An adventure into the Panasonic GX85/80 begins - and a look at the Leica Nocticron for Micro Four Thirds
      I tried my hand with live chat, and an live chat agent by the name of Jodene C. took some time to look into it, and returned after about 8 minutes to say it is 4:2:2.  She closed the chat before I could get the screenshot but you can still see it in the attachment.
