    • Canon XC15
      I suspect most people would much rather have a constant aperture and have it be something like f2.8 24-200. 2 lousy stops are huge, even with a 1" sensor. I do give you credit for being the first positive review of the camera I saw, when it seemed like everyone else was slamming it. 
    • Canon C300 Mark II flopping vs the Sony FS7 at rental?
      Another thing to mention is, the original C300 is still being used pretty widely. If you're not rendering out to 4K, I am not sure the upgrade is really worth it.  Man though, if you shoot a lot of interviews, you will really really please your clients if you shoot with the C300ii. The color is just so amazing. The auto focus is also incredible. Those two features alone are worth it. No 60p/4k is a really big bummer. Exactly.  I do want to say, the Sony Cine Alta cameras are on a different level. The F3 has amazing color. So cheap as well.
    • Canon XC15
      I liked it a lot. Never had any issues with the lens and would not trade the reach, stabilization or size for only 2 stops at the far end and nothing at the wide.
      Raising the ISO took care of any lowlight issues.

      The lens is a 5 axis stabilized, parfocal and constant aperture 24-70/4, 24-240/5.6 and a 24/2.8. All built in to one small lens.
      I surely hope they don't get rid of that for 2 lousy stops at the far end of a lens sitting in front of a 1" sensor. Would make no sense at all imo.
    • Canon C300 Mark II flopping vs the Sony FS7 at rental?
      The interesting thing is, it still seems like Sony is using the same kind of colorimetry it did 10 years ago. For example, the old Sony HC1. Great handycam for it's time. But when I compared it to the Canon HV20 in cinemode... The difference is actually almost the same now. The Canon HV20 had a mode that disabled sharpening completely and had a very cinematic image, a bit orangey with a great whitebalance. The Sony was a bit more blue, bit more magenta, bit more sharp. Sony was also two years before Canon in the market. Nothing has changed in 10 years haha.

      Come on Mattias, you're just trolling. You know that slow lens tended to be the first complaint people mentioned with it. Given how big it is, they should have done something like a constant f2.8. There is no way you're gonna convince me that wasn't possible. It was a joke that Canon constantly hyped that lens.
