    • Canon 1DX II - Video Camera Perspective - Mini interview on the missing details
      I didn't want to answer than question because then I would also need to say the FS7 list of advantages over the 1DXII, or else I'd be understood as saying the 1DXII is 'better'.  With knowing that I mean none is better, if you really want to acually know why would people buy it over the FS7: - First and probaby most important element is the body sealing against elements. Users can take the 1DC out in the rain but simply can't take the fs7 or c300 for that matter. And that's rain, the 1DXII body will go under freezing temperature, besides volcanos, buried in dust & mud, left taking a timelapse in a hurricane, take a two story fall and shoot. It's that high of a build quality and for getting these features Canon had to leave three FS7 features they could implement: XF-AVC and internal WIFI/NFC and articulating screen. In that model for certain shooters it's made or these uses, build quality cannot be compromised one bit.  - Second most important reason why we'd buy it over the FS7/C100 is of course stills capability. It's the highest-end/fastest stills camera in the world with enormous AF lens line-up/speed lights/revoluionary AF system/OVF/20m/mechanical shutter (not going to list all the stills abilities it has over the FS7! So it's a hybrid professional stills and video camera. BIG reason to buy over an FS7.  -Third most important element is SIZE and WEIGHT of the camera which makes it a choice for shots the FS7 can't achieve.  -Larger sensor size. APS-H
    • URSA Mini Getting Terrible Reviews
      I don't know... I read a lot about the camera shutting off and not turning back on. Lots of dead pixels, drop frames and screen issues too (from the sounds of it).
    • Fuji X Pro 2 video quality a huge step up - hands on with the final hardware, pre-production firmware
      X-trans if anything has less color sensitivity than a Bayer sensor. The only reason that Fuji cameras can deliver nice colors is because Fuji knows color very well and can work around the limitations of the sensor on color in order to provide better noise performance.  I am sure if they focus on video they can deliver something very good. I would like to see an image without aliasing artifacts (downsampled from a full sensor readout), with a light log curve. And then Fuji should provide us with LUTs with their excellent Film simulations.   Your initial report has propagated quit a bit on the web, so a mail from you on how to improve video might get things going . 
    • Lenses
      If you want the best lens with that look, spend the money and get the Nikon. Other 2.8 lenses will probably be fine for whatever you're doing, but I feel like you keep asking the same question and hoping you get a different answer. If you want to know what the Tokina or Sigma 2.8 lenses look like, Google them... Surely there are videos online using those lenses. 
    • A Tale of Two T2.0 Zooms (for A6300)
      @Brian Caldwell It's an interesting thought. A Sony/Canon 50mp-ish newest FF sensors + Zeiss/Sigma 50mm F/1.4 glass would provide the same or better image to a 50MP sensor with a common 80-90mm f/2.8. I think it happened because the higher demand on FF warranted higher performance increase both by sensor & lens makers.  The MF SB request comes from that there's a magical unique aesthetic to MF size but I don't think it's true and matching between size formats has been proven with getting equivalent lenses = same ''aesthetic''.  And some people argue that MF glass is vastly higher performing and quality built/glass to any FF lenses. I also don't think it's true and only applies to a handful of very expensive and modern MF stills/Cinema glass. FF lenses have rocketed, look at Sigma & Canon & Nikon & ziess newest releases after 2013-ish in terms of IQ and cost, unbelievable.
