    • Sony's response to PXW-FS5 issues and why I am keeping hold of my camera
      I'm trying to decide between an fs5 and an fs7 for shooting weddings. I love the fs7 image but the ergonomics of the fs5 are really good too. Have around £10k budget- any advice? Would need a heavy duty tripod and accessories too (have lenses).

      Yeah that's along the same lines. It would be nice if a camera built that tech into the body. Seems like a very useful feature.

      It gives it the same AF as the camera has with its native glass. No extra function added. Currently for Leica M. http://petapixel.com/2016/01/07/this-adapter-gives-manual-focus-m-lenses-autofocus-on-sony-cameras/
    • Film Piracy, Careers Ruined, Sundance, Worth it?
      It's pretty clear what you wanted my intent to be.  The thing was that this one guy says that unless every internet access is strictly monitored internationally for copyright infrigement with ugly laws (I guess this is what he meant by privacy) there will be no more films except super heroe movies. Fact is, as you are saying, that a lowbudget, kickstarter funded, 27% RT audience score movie, has made "high five figures or low six figures internationally so far". Currently your movie has zero seeds on kickasstorrents, and a youtube upload with 87 views. Then there are movies with larger budgets "positioned to tell more unique stories from more diverse points of view" /no action movies nor superproductions, like "Beasts of the Southern Wild", "Whiplash" o "Nightcrawler", the first two made more than 10x their budget. These obviously have many torrents up to date. The opening post has a link to youtube video where a guy states that piracy ruined his carrer, I can't find his "marianne" film anywhere. So, what's my point? You will have a hard time finding a movie with good audience scores that was not profitable due to piracy, piracy is directly proportional to the sucess of the film. Some guy will come and tell me that back in the day you could make a living out of B movies, yeah well, I'm sorry for you, but cheap Netflix,etc... with 100 years of good easy accesible movies isn't going to go away, and piracy has nothing to do with that.

      They have the Aputure DEC in E-mount: http://www.aputure.com/dec-compatible-lens-list . Something like that you mean, I suppose? One of the first bridgecameras to sport 1080p was the Canon PowerShot SX1 IS. It used the navigational dial on the back in MF mode to turn and control focus. Totally OT, but just for nostalgic sake let me share this video where someone made a test to show how flexible the zoomrange is that sold me on the camera: Neways, back to focus by buttons... I could imagine Magic Lantern coming up with a similar thing. Main thing: it has to be appointed in-camera and I don't think out-of-the-box it's switchable, so something like the DEC would be worth a try. Just... it's limited to Canon mount lenses. There's a bunch tested as well as the Sigma ART 18-35mm f/1.8 that should work.
