      I use Fresnels most of the time Arri originals and recently I bought a whole bunch of Chinese Arri copy fresnels off ebay for the feature film I just did , I needed to light 3 sets simultaniously and leave the lighting  up for weeks at a time (I had 25 fresnels up at once on 3 sets) ,I like Fresnels as you can use them as a hard light or add some f1 Diffussion and use them as a soft light, you cant do that with Kino Flos they are soft all the time , so for me Fresnels are the way I light most of the time , the exception is lighting Women .. where a soft light is more beautiful , so sometimes if I need a very soft look , I use Kinos then or LED tube lights I have made - basically LED Kinos not tube Kinos , The Chinese Fresnels are just as good as the real Arri ones I was amazed , once you have a good globe/bulb in them like Osram - there is nothing in it , I bought 150s 300s 650s and 1K Pups and they are all superb , they worked 40 days for 12 hrs a day no issues . so check these out they are great http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fresnel-Tungsten-Spotlight-150W-Lighting-Studio-camera-Video-/331687239451?hash=item4d3a199f1b:g:x8AAAOSw-zxWoXQS http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pro-1000W-Movie-Fresnel-Tungsten-SpotLight-Studio-Camera-Video-/252322910892?hash=item3abf9e12ac:g:lP8AAOSwAuNW6hii http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/On-Sales-UK-Fresnel-Tungsten-Spotlight-300W-Lighting-Studio-camera-Video-/252134887278?hash=item3ab4690f6e:g:0k0AAOSwqYBWp0Dk http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pro-Studio-650W-Tungsten-Spot-light-Dimmer-globe-Compatible-arri-bulb-/231722293457?hash=item35f3b998d1:g:0nUAAOSwKtlWp0A4   they are all amazing prices , I do recomend these lamps . 300w Fresnels in action on the movie Pandora with diffusion and gels on the front - standard stuff for me
    • Canon 1Dc $4,999
      Everything I'm mentioning is what I thought I was told at NAB four years ago. Sorry for my mistake. Show me some of your work. Would love to see how it compares. C Log is more than worth it for me to go with 1DC as I work with other Canon Cine cameras on a daily basis. Fact is, 1DC makes the most beautiful cinema 4K I've ever seen off a Canon Cinema Camera and I've used them all with the exception of C500.  The Canon Cine lens compatibility I was referring to was addressed in the most recent firmware update: https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/explore/product-showcases/cameras-and-lenses/cinema-eos-firmware/1dc 1DC also has some other advantages over the original 1DX. Obviously doesn't relate to 1DX II fully but is a response to what DBounce has said: "Compared with 1D X hardware, 1D C has a better heatsink, slightly overclocked DIGIC 5+ chip, a headphone jack instead of flash sync port and a locating pin hole at the bottom. 1D C is approximately 150g heavier than 1D X." http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?304245-Some-interesting-facts-about-Canon-1D-C-you-probably-don-t-know-about although this article debates the heatsink difference: http://wolfcrow.com/blog/canon-1dc-vs-1dx/ Truth is....this camera is a freaking beast. Im not switching. I love it. You should rent them and see for yourself. I only use manual lenses so the autofocus doesnt matter to me and Canon Log is way too important for me too. Slow motion isnt an issue. I can get slow motion from other tools. This is a sexy image machine.
    • Petition for LOG video profile on Panasonic GX85
      I must disagree with you. Panasonic added Many Features in Firmware even with the GH4. Anamorphic and VLog came After users began petitioning Panasonic. Maybe users should follow Matt Frazer and other Panasonic executives  (and Directors) on Twitter or tell him during Trade Shows/ Electronic Shows  (as well).  
    • Petition for Samsung NX1 hack
      I don't think you will need FPGA or anything more complicated. The most complicated parts seem to be the setup of the lens in the nx protocol. After the setup section, it should be more or less straight look up.
