    • Canon C500 Is it worth 7K new?
      I do not see the C500 support as particularly high on the Atomos agenda. I could be wrong, but the Inferno is simply the wrong device for capturing C500 footage in all its different output modes, even with the two SDI connectors. They may get there someday, but it's a huge gamble to assume that everything is coming in future upgrades. DVXuser is one place to look for how the C500 works or doesn't work with Atomos recorders. The Odyssey may be a bitter pill for some, but it is one you have to take to work with the C500. The extra fee for the RAW license is unfortunate, I agree. Of course, without the license you can still shoot the camera in 4K ProRes (up to 30p) and 2K 12 bit RGB 4:4:4, which upscales incredibly well to 4K as both are derived from the same 4 x 2K lattices I mentioned above. Compare 4K and 2K (here only at 10 bit) starting at 1:57 in this test by Hurlbut: Aside from the Human Voice trailer I linked above, here are some other examples of 2K 12 bit RGB 4:4:4 (shown in HD without upscaling):       There are many more of those lens tests from Cooke Optics using the C500's 2K RGB mode on Vimeo. Cooke also has some slow motion examples shot in 60fps (10 bit RGB) and 120fps (10 bit YCC) and recorded on the Codex. The Odyssey for its part records onto Samsung 850 EVO drives that cost $320 for 1TB or you can go for the Samsung 850 PRO 1TB at $420 (or any of the 850 Pro line that are smaller and cheaper). That will give you one hour of 4K RAW at 24p, 2.5 hours of 4K ProRes 4:2:2 HQ, or 5.5 hours of 4K ProRes 4:2:2 LT. In terms of cost per GB, I would say that is a very competitive price when compared with RED mini-mags or CF 2.0 cards, for example. You can also take your SSD, stick it into a drive bay, and start editing right away. I do agree that the battery solution is not ideal, but the optional battery adapter on the back works with Canon C300/C500 batteries and gives you around 1.5 to 2 hours of continuous recording from everything I have read. It's a much lighter solution than attaching a V-lock on rails. You would be carrying the same battery that the camera uses, so I think it is an ideal setup in that sense. You can also mount the recorder to the camera in numerous ways depending on if you want to go with rails or not.
    • Metabones T Smart adapter ef to mft
      I realise many are using the speed booster by MB but whats with the plain vanilla T smart adapter (http://www.metabones.com/products/details/MB_EF-m43-BT2), does it fit the Micro Cinema camera? I have a Canon ef 17-40mm, ef 70-200mm f2.8 non IS, and a ef 500mm f4.5 non IS (which I understand needs a powered or active mount to even enable manual focus) I would love to use these or at the very least the 70-200mm non is 2.8, anyone know of the compatibility of any of these? ( I know their not on the MB site list) Thanks.
    • SLR Magic Rangefinder footage - kiss goodbye to focus breathing / Kowa anamorphic goes single focus
      RF isn't worth it in my opinion, if you're spending decent cash to get a half-decent scope you might as well pay the bit extra and also get a core DNA. Buy once, cry once. SLR magic also have horrible looking coatings, I hope they fix these issues someday in the future as it's good for the market to have competition, right now though there's none, Rectilux is miles ahead. I mean what's the point getting one of these systems if every time you review the footage you wish you were shooting with it off...
    • GH5 Prototype
      I maybe wrong  but you have to have at least a 18.8 or so MP sensor to get 6000 x3000. So I don't know, only Panny knows I guess, and I am not sure they really know or they would have said what it was! I think they, Panny, had to say something now or people would have bought into others systems. This is about the dumbest roll out of sorts I have ever heard from a company. I get the feeling they are grabbing for straws themselves or hoping for a miracle. I am pretty sure I am not going to wait for it. I am not looking for a camera in 8 months, hoping it ships in 10 months, and maybe it is not even what I want. What if it still sort of sucks in low light, really has no more DR etc.. We would have to wait for tests to prove all of that. That could be a year from now. I am not waiting long I can tell you that without a LOT more info... This could be a dream camera on the cheap, but right now it is vaporware.
    • Canon 5d Mark IV Video
      I rented the 5D4 for a wedding shoot yesterday to go along with my other cams.  Used a 512gb sandisk SD card with gave it about 128 minutes or 4K shooting.  The lowlight is not as good as in full frame mode but it's not as terrible as everyone is making it out to be if you shoot with fast lenses.
