  1. there is one thing to remember - that the BMCC is not that great for TV work. I know that sounds boring but the C300 IS good for TV work. doesnt justify the price tho ;)  
  2. [quote name='Steadiphil' timestamp='1347271712' post='17690'] out of the box the BMD camera is close to un-useable in the field, too many design flaws to mention here. [/quote] that is surely an overstatement unless you are talking about a shoot (a big studio production say) where they would normally use a 35mm or a digital equivalent like Alexa etc.
  3. i think it was a late reaction to the word on the street (internet) that the people want to use mft lenses so there is less of a crop factor problem. dont know why they didnt think of that.
  4. from new BM press release for IBC 2012 [b]Blackmagic Cinema Camera MFT[/b] Since the Blackmagic Cinema Camera was announced we have been overwhelmed by the fantastic response. We have also been extremely happy with the response to the first shipments and have already seen some wonderful work done on them. We started shipping a few weeks ago, however the Cinema Camera is a highly advanced piece of equipment and it uses a large amount of high quality precision parts to build it. Some components are coming into our factory slower than we expected and this has caused the manufacturing of the cameras to slow. We expect to have this sorted out over the next few weeks and then can speed up and get more cameras delivered. In the mean time, our engineering has not been slowed down at all and we are continuing to develop the next software update with new features for release very soon. [b]We have also been working on a Passive Micro Four Thirds model of the camera. People have been asking for this as there are a lot of nice high end manually operated MFT lenses on the market, and the MFT mount can also be easily adapted to PL and other lens mounts using third party adapters.[/b] [b]The new Blackmagic Cinema Camera MFT is expected to ship in December, and will be the same price as the original model. It’s identical in features as they are both the same camera, just with different lens mounts. The price will also be the same at $2,995. We will be working with our dealers to help people change their orders if they want.[/b] [url="http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/blackmagiccinemacamera/"]http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/blackmagiccinemacamera/[/url]
  5. apparently the BM Cinema camera doesnt shoot interlaced? that wont help. although final spec is not out yet...  ???
  6. great... BAE systems? the bastards who build military equipment to kill millions of human beings? WTF
  7. This C300 is WAY overpriced. But then again, everything is which is considered 'professional'.
