  1. Sold two months ago my 5D MKIII this is my next camera. Canon bye bye
  2. I have macs updated with SSDs. 1 Macbook Pro 15", 1 MacPro and one Macbook 12" no one problem with Yosemite.
  3. Well... you do not need this setup. Base model is already a great configuration for editing multiple 4K streams so is future proof for some years of nice work. The Mac Pro also supports 3 4K monitors at 60hz by default. You can update the SSD and RAM with cheaper third party solutions. In January you will see the first 28" quality monitors around $1000 and the bigger ones will be dropping price soon. So the situation is not so bad.
  4. There is something I would do and be safe to not regret it. If you buy some nice Nikon manual lenses on ebay you will be still able to use them on both Nikon and Canon bodies beside BMPCC. Also used lenses are not going to loose value so much.
  5. Andrew great footage. Your blog is really my first choice for updates that matter.
  6. I am shooting with a Mark III in Raw and Canon still has a full line of video cameras with EF lenses. You can mount Nikon glass over a Canon mount. So for me now selling all my glass makes no sense.
  7. This is great and basically removing most of the limits of BMCC. To be the perfect combo with a Canon Mark III we need EF lenses version now. Please!
  8. Well... beside all the talks I am really waiting to buy the Blackmagic Pocket + Speed Booster MFT for Canon lenses. So this will be the end of the story for me for sometime.   In my bag soon or later: Canon Mark 3 body for stills Blackmagic Pocket body for video (ProRes + Raw) Set of primes   Is this really far away to the almost perfect solution everybody is talking about?   I think not... and we should be around the corner as Speed Booster MFT for Canon lenses should be ready soon.   Cheers
  9. Oh yes... Nikon entering the fashion business. There is no reason at all this can be taken seriously over a D800E. A tool is a tool and this is obviously not marketed to photographers. My perfect set in the bag now is a nice set of lenses mounted over: A7R for greatly detailed photography in a compact body good for gallery size large prints Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera with speed booster to use the same lenses on Raw video Looks like to me that in a modular world having two optimized sensors/bodies with a great shared lens set will be a wiser choice than a limited hybrid. And this will be the direction I will take.
  10. Great article. Very impressed about the Blackmagic Pocket. With the Canon EF to MFT active speedbooster and RAW firmware update this will be my preferred movie camera:   http://www.43rumors.com/speed-booster-ef-to-mft-adapter-release-delayed/
  11. This is my perfect photo camera. As ugly as a quality focused technical design should be.   ...and totally agree that could be just killer to have a ProRes or Raw option.   I have to see how the glass part works with adapters etc... for my Eos lenses. If this works well my X-E1 + two lens will take a nice trip on Ebay before the end of the year.
  12. I assume that you will be able speed up rendering by adding these boxes and using OpenCL.   This could be the killer expansion at $ 200-250:  http://www.anandtech.com/show/7040/computex-2013-thunderbolt-graphics-from-silverstone   Cheers
  13. No independent film maker has used this camera in its final version so we can not judge. I am personally waiting to download and grade some footage before any decision or judgment. The rest is just guessing. After using the 5d MKIII in raw my expectations are very high. The bar has risen. The only thing I am sure about is the ergonomics that should be much more improved.
  14. Andrew Just bought your book with the same spirit I donated ML form the beginning. The spirit of community and sharing is the best thing internet has to offer and we see the fruit everyday. Beside that your book is a great shortcut for somebody that wants to shoot RAW. Ciao
