    • Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is the highest paid actor
      I don't begrudge anyone for getting paid, if someone is willing to write the check take it. Everyone here would take $60m to slough it through shit like Fast and Furious, anyone saying they wouldn't is flat out lying, because you would then have the freedom to do pretty much any project you want. Hats off to The Rock for becoming the most bankable star on the planet right now. Tentpole movies aren't bad because they're made by Americans, they're bad because the major movie studios are all owned by giant conglomerates like Disney, Sony and Viacom. All they care about is keeping shareholders happy, and safe movies with a built in audience does just that. As long as people eat up numb nut Star Wars crap and various cinematic universes, it's not going to change. Just look at the he slate of tentpoles over the next three years - an endless barrage of Marvel/DC/Transformers/Star Wars movies   And remember, most of a blockbusters' gross comes from markets outside the U.S., cars blowing up and dudes in tights are easy to translate. 
    • A question for A7R II owners regarding new firmware and AF
      Curious about this as well.. Even before V3, A7R II had pretty impressive video PDAF (especially in fast setting):  
    • DCI 4k 24fps Motion Cadence: I need a hero.
      To me, that describes the BMPC to a T. That would make sense, because an external recorder offers intra-frame compression, but I haven't used it myself. 
    • iMac or specialist editing rig?
      Geez, that's a lot of stuff to store. Most of my projects will fit on a 64 or 128gb flash drive - which is my preferred archival medium. I'm not into endlessly replacing spinning platters, but much like Axel, I really don't have many pieces I have to keep forever. I have a bunch of stock footage type b-roll, but little else. I do have a safe deposit box with a growing number of thumb drives though. I've read some photographers say they never delete any raw file. I really don't see the point as I'm always generating enough new content that I'll never re-edit old files. One I finish an edit I'm happy with, it goes to the cloud, into a finished folder on my external array and the current archival drive. Some get printed, the rest are forgotten in folders on my drives that I rarely go back to. Seems silly at times. It a viscous cycle. 
    • A question for A7R II owners regarding new firmware and AF
      I have an A7S II and sold my A7R II. It was a close call though. Now I know recently the A7R II had a big firmware update (v3) mentioning phase detect AF in movie mode and other improvements. A7S II is only V2 and it doesn't have phase detect AF on the sensor like A7R II. A7R II was already very fast in stills mode even with some Canon lenses. Now also the Metabones adapter has had a big firmware update adding native AF support - which should mean a huge increase in AF performance with Canon EF lenses on Sony E-mount cameras and extra features like Eye AF, DMF and better movie mode AF. Has anyone tried both firmware updates together, with their Canon lenses on the A7R II... Does it amount to a big improvement and more solid AF reliability? Usable in movie mode too? With the 5D Mark IV's only real selling point being the native EF mount and Dual Pixel AF, the better the situation gets on the Sony bodies, the happier I will be!
