    • 1DX ii rated at 13.5 stops
      I already did. Go to the link below. What I can't recall is if I mentioned in that thread how much more robust the Canon files are. I had much more room to grade with the Canon, whereas the Sony files just turned to mush. Granted I have seen cameras that were even more flexible when grading, but not with the feature-set and iso performance that the Canon offers. All around the Canon is well balanced and never feels anything less than Pro. Even in stills mode the Canon looked better at high ISOs. When noise was present, it looked organic, while the Sony image was covered in the usual green pink multicolored speckles that ruin shots.  The only edge I give the Sony was pure resolution. And in good lighting the Sony can deliver great stills. Comparing the video quality is pointless. The Sony always looks video, no matter lighting, camera motion, audio... there's just no getting away from it. Where the Canon can look very cinematic, with pleasing motion cadence and great colors. Different leagues. The Canon may cost double, but even then, it punches way above its weight class. I've finally stopped looking for cameras. I now have a tool I can work with.  I've turned my attention to the craft and creating the look. Ordered gels, canned haze, and some soft boxes. Recently got a jib, and I'm loving that thing... Although I need practice. The 1DX MkII is squared away. No more blaming the camera. Now I have to bring my A-game to deliver the results.

      C100 MkII.
      Sigma 18-35mm
      Canon 24-105mm
      No external recorder required. It makes little difference anyway. Lean and incredibly mean.
    • Aputure: the Blackmagic of lighting
      Looks good, and I think they would work great on my Excelvcan 1040s. Only 2 cons... only grey imports available in EU, and the grid is overpriced (30$).   Dunno, maybe the power difference could be due to the fan of the Pixapro. I do like it as a hard light, but I use it without the reflector because it blurs the shadow edges. I might get a cheap reflector and paint it black inside.

      I'd say a used C300 or a c100 mk II with external recorder. C300 with autofocus upgrade would be best but I think either one would be fine. There are both work horse cameras that will never let you down. Plus you can't beat that canon look.

      I'm shooting a music video next week. Then one day later a 2 week documentary in Mexico City. Then after that finishing up a feature doc that will go to theaters in the fall. We shot most of the feature doc on the c300.  I'm on the fence with: used C300. C100 mkii (I still think I'd rather do c300 tho). FS5. a7S II with Atomos and XLR adapter.  Help me decide
