  1. "Brynjolfur featuring Beka Hoop - Chain Glass" in still my favorite from you Andrew, great stuff.
  2. ‚ÄčThe above comment is thee one, you can close the thread now. As a lover of movies that was raised on movies shot on film, I can tell. I can see the blown highlights of day scenes, I can see the cropped black bars that "emulates" anamorphic 35mm minus what makes it so magical along with the fake lens flare plugin that's put on top of every shot. The grain with film and the movement of it, all I have to do is point to Michael Mann's latest movie Black Hat. Go download the trailer, its there, the ghosting images of a digital sensor. Film improves movies of all like, just look at low budget B m
  3. That was very stupid. Form factor matters alot, theres a reason why its been the way it has for so long, not because it "looks" cool. It works, you hold a dslr and then you hold an old film camera or the equivalent shape. You will instantly notice the stability and comfort, along with the ability to use your other hands to do more things. Think of it this way, sure small is great, but there a reason why people have to rig it up, and guess what shape seems to work so well: Over the shoulder. A Progression to a more suitable design is great, it doesnt take away from their previous design eit
  4. I am curious to see the picture profiles, the specs are quite amazing. You dont want a pro level camera? Buy the body. You want more? Buy the extender. I do wonder what the dynamic range will be like but 10-bit 4:2:2 is very impressive, my experience with color grading on h.264 is a pain. This really is a world camera, so many customizable switches is fantastic and welcomed. The only thing now is the price, as long as it isnt priced with the same mindset as canon style of thinking, im sure i'll be ok with it.
  5. Really? I found the music video very refreshing, interesting use of the Dogme 95 touches in it as well. 30 fps is not the standard for "cinema" but it worked great here for me, it adds that "other worldly" quality to it since my eyes are so used to 24 fps. *** Good stuff Andrew!
  6. Can't wait to see some test footage of this mysterious camera and your Cooke lens in action.
  7.   Interesting and true. Although I dont agree with alot of Canon's decisions your comment does make sense. Sure we can hope for all these things but it was not the design, and they dont see the benefit of it apparently from what they are releasing. So maybe its time to jump ship, go the BMCC or Digital Bolex route, or stick it out and compromise with these hybrid cameras? Its really up to us. We have so many options available now, its time to make a decision.
  8. 1080p 60fps with a global shutter at 13 stops would be all that is needed for average use. Dont really need anything higher then 1080p if it was to risk 13 stops and a global shutter.
  9.   Some really sound advice from tosvus:   ---------- You also have to take into affect that if you are going for Black Magic Cinema Camera that you'll have to get used to other caviats: SSD, RAW/Proress workflow in post, and you wont be able to deleted captured media via the BMCC, You'll have to do that with a pc. If you're just starting out dont go full BMCC unless you have the time and patience for it. If you dont have any eperience at all then get a t3i or GH2/G6 depending on the glass you want to get, these are reletively cheap now. I mean there's no reason to go full out i
