    • What can Canon be thinking?
      After spending several months servicing both Canon and Sony cameras at a rental house, Canon's decisions are starting to make sense to me. While they clearly follow a strict marketing playbook and parse out features according to what they perceive as end user needs (like giving LOG to their cinema cameras only), they do spend they time and effort to provide a quality product that lasts. Sony just tends to cram in as much processing power as possible without considering how it might best be used. The FS5 for example cannot output via SDI during 4K recording. The signal just cuts out, so you're pretty screwed if you're using an on-board monitor. The FS7 must be manually switched between SDI and HDMI. It won't do both at the same time. The menus on the Canons are quick and responsive. The ones on the FS7 lag and make you wait for every setting. Takes 25 minutes to upload new firmware. The FS5 is constantly repairing it's image database. And all Sonys are incredibly touchy when it comes to folder structure on the memory cards. God forbid you put in a memory card you used on a different camera, and the Sony won't even be able to access the card in order to format it. I've also gone on and on about how poorly they're built. The C100 and C300 come with a crisp magnesium chassis that is impervious to dents, dirt and scrapes. So while you might not be getting the 4K resolution and high frame rates that you might feel are necessary, you are getting a solid tool that will last long beyond product cycles. Arri brings the same philosophy which is why Oscar-winning movies keep being shot on Alexas, shot in 2.8K. Solid quality over flashy specs.
    • Thread pitch Isco Video Attachment (Iscorama 54)?
      Hi all, simple question, can't seem to find a good answer so I thought I'd just ask the knowledgeable crowd here. So I found an Isco Video Attachment (same design as Iscorama 54, just different stretch factor). Besides being heavy, MFD is 2m which also impacts practical shooting. I have some 82mm and 86mm diopters to use so I would like to buy a step ring. Front filter size is 95mm. Thread pitch is larger than normal though...Does anyone know it's specifications and/or have suggestions for suitable step rings? Thanks a lot!
    • Camcorders
      Btw, that video link doesn't work.  Yeah, I did. But I am gonna buy another one. 100 euro will be tight for that lens, but you can probably find one. 
    • First Short Film
      Thanks, yeah that's what we were going for.  I wrote, directed, shot, cut, etc. We had a boom pole operator some days but for the most part it was a one-man-band. I posted this when I made it (six years ago) and it got a negative reply, but people seem to like it more now. Thanks! The second part gets weird but a lot more visual. We shot it on a t2i and mostly the 18-55mm and 55-250mm plastic lenses, a few scenes with Nikkor lenses.
