    • 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).

      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. 
    • Petition for LOG video profile on Panasonic GX85
      I bet if you ask Matt Frazer he'll say it's something he'd like to see as well, but that's it's the strategy of the higher-ups in Japan not to do anything like that. Glad he managed to get some stuff going for the GH4. Which is more experimental add-ons than something anticipated from the get-go btw (like mentioned @ 34:45). The GX80/85... tough luck. While you're at it, might as well be petitioning Canon to add 4K to the 760D/T6s. At the end of the day though, I applaud the enthusiasm, but you can't just go and petition everything. Same was when Samsung was dropping the NX-line. I get you want stuff (doesn't everyone?), but it doesn't really work like that. It's something else if someone doesn't live up to some promise, but you know what you were getting yourself into... it's not like you've been wronged by them. It's just how business works. Blame segmentation. You want something better? Buy the more expensive model. GH4 too old and you like the GX80/85 but it's missing some of that mojo? Wait for the GH5. But hey, power to you for trying. Maybe I'm just overly pessimistic.
    • Petition for Samsung NX1 hack
      @kidzrevil Can't speak for others but I have nx500 so no evf from me Great work Luca, I tried something similar (but much more primitive) with m42 a long time ago but I was unable to position the added elements precisely enough and got mostly useless results - your results are very positive! Regarding canon vs nikon - yes it is true that due to longer flange straight adapter will not work, but let's wait and see how much of the space is actually used by this adapter - it might be doable to shave a millimeter or there and get canon lenses to work.
