  1. ugh that sucks, i really hope canon comes out with something that rivals that lens, i can live with a f4 for a parafocal power zoom with IS!
  2. i know, im amazed by it, so i guess there is no way to mount it on a canon body huh?
  3. the biggest bummer is that i wanted a camera i could put this lens on, Sony FE PZ 28-135mm f/4 G OSS Lens, i so wish canon made something even close to this for the price!
  4. oh great, thank you for the clarification, so there is no full frame 4k, it all makes sense now! oh, except for formats, mpeg?mjpeg? h264? whats going on with these?
  5. Thank you for quickly publishing this honest review, it's obviously much of a relief for us canon users that we dont have to go out and buy a whole new system. i was seriously considering it when i saw that beautiful sony power zoom with IS in another review… now we have to just wait for canon to put out a lens like that or a 1dc/5d1V with a nice evf and id be happy! one question about the 1dc, ive read all the reviews and one thing still confuses me, so are these are the video options; 4k full frame, 4k 35mm crop or 1080 full frame or 1080mm 35 crop? and if those all are available which is th
  6. so, checked out the XC10 in depth at NAB, i went there having preordered it with high hopes for a lightweight 4k camera that was cheap and easy enough to just whip out on scouts and do some tests. we were all let down pretty big on this one. first of al it just feels cheap, granted a lot of people playing with them at nab but while i was holding it the viewfinder just popped off so easily it literally fell off the camera. as well it sucked, it might be the worst view finder i have ever looked through, i had to ask, why does everything look purple on this view finder. i went through all the set
  7. ill also test if its parafocal and if the front of the lens turn with focus or the zoom, maybe we can put an slr magic 1.33x on it! sorry, i am an optimist!
  8. well one thing we are missing is that the zoom has 10x range, ill see it at nab and see what focal length the aperture actually starts ramping. its a 27-270 optical, so if its 27-100 at f2.8 that pretty great! to get a further range then that on lets say a canon 70-200 at f2.8 youll pay 2k just for the lens. unless there is a pocket camera from black magic that is 4k with slower frame rates, then this camera might surprise you on how much it will start popping up on productions. not films or commercials mind you, but behind the scenes and docs, like the 5D is limited to now. i can see using it
  9. throughout the digital video history of sony's cameras, they always have been high in quality but among the worst in a cinematic look, from the f23 to the f65, all revolutionary but all with a very video look. in fact the f23 was the only option for HD green screen work at one time, for about 2 years...
  10. im sorry to say, i dont think the arri lut works to well on the skin tones, they look horrible to me.
  11. more digital feel? i think the BMPC is the most cinematic camera in the dslr pipeline for sure, ive mixed it with an alexa on 9 commercial shoots already and the grade only has to be slightly changed in saturation to match. not to mention the Pro Res option which is what 8 out the 9 clients preferred to deal with in post. as andrew said, its not ready for a professional production, so a toy for 3k? id rather have a tool for 1k. not that if i didnt have money to blow i wouldnt own one. though it makes me think maybe i should buy another real bolex!
  12. its way too expensive for what it is, it needs to come down to pocket camera price. that being said, it does look pretty much the same as all the bolex footage i used to shoot back in the day, cross processing and reversal film prints. but, i have also seen this look come straight from an iphone and camera apps! pocket camera price…and i buy it.
  13. oh well, actually this first report just made me cancel my pre-order, i think ill wait to see if they fix the slow motion function, since this is the selling point for this camera for me and most people i think. That and the hopes for a flat gradable picture style, which isnt even mentioned.
  14. what about those angeniuex zooms with a built in finder that were for non reflex bolex's? it would be pretty cool if these worked and you could actually see through the lens optically!
  15. i have to agree with most people here, i think it's his career that is imploding, not the film business. Lincoln was a boring film, my wife fell asleep during it, the only reason i stayed awake was because i thought the cinematography was the best of the year. i couldnt even make it through red tails. both of those directors are out of it, they just dont make good movies anymore and their ideas are tired. as well, some of these upgraded dine in theaters are so amazing that we will almost go watch anything to sit in a huge recliner and get served real food and drinks too! I think the studios j
  16. how do you test the speed of your card once you receive?
  17. well, ive talked the producer into letting me shoot on the epic since its my crews workflow they are used to, but im going to have him bring in his GH3's and have my DIT look at the entire situation, but according to them, thats what they have been doing. 
  18. i wouldnt believe it either except that its the owner of one of the biggest VFX/Design companies in the country and he has said he has shot his last few projects with this set up. very strange.
  19. well, since a panasonic was brought up again, ill try my question again...     i like to feel like im update on all the dslr action going on, but i was just asked to shoot on the companies GH3 cameras rather than an EPIC i had booked for the job. the producer said " the owner has a fully ported GH3 that shoots 4k uncompressed"... needless to say i was like what???   is this possible or can be true? i need to know before i knock it down.   thanks in advance everyone!

  21. ha! i was even scared to add the new picture style at first thinking they put it out to corrupt the ML hack!
  22. understood, but i only work on sets, so not understanding the context of the question i was asking you should of not of been so quick to say i dont understand raw, just be careful what you say to professionals on this forum, some people arent as nice as me :)
  23. darn, i really hope they fix the lag of the video that outputs to the monitors in the new firmware, since we operate and pull focus off the monitors with this camera its getting a little tricky now for my AC's and handheld operating on action was freaking me out a bit :(
