    C200 vs C100 MKII

    Here in the UK Wex are a leading photographic retailer who do very good used deals all with 1year warranty. They currently have a C100 Mk II for £2K C100 Mk I for £1200 & even a C500 for just under £5K https://www.wexphotovideo.com/canon-eos-c100-mark-ii-high-definition-camcorder-used-1687969/

    EOSHD Opinion - The Sony A6400 is an absolute turkey

    I guess that having a camera as a step up from a phone that the average family shooter expects to be able to take video selfies.

    EOSHD Opinion - The Sony A6400 is an absolute turkey

    I find it difficult to believe that the Vlogger market actually exists. Are there really a significant number of people who want to buy a camera just to post on YouTube compared to all the other people would buy a camera to take pictures of the kids or whatever?

    Raid Replacement Hard Drive Recommendations

    Just put each project on a separate SSD.

    Raid Replacement Hard Drive Recommendations

    I don't understand why SSDs aren't practical if your projects are 6-800GB each will easily fit on a 1TB SSD. A 1TB SSD costs about the same as a 6TB HDD.

    Vimeo alternatives

    If you want to stream wedding videos with unlicensed music then it's easy enough to host on your own VPS. The traffic will be minimal & no record company could ever find your content anyway. Same goes for proof copies & demos for clients.

    Olympus EM1-X Rumor

    This pixel shift Hi Res mode only works if the subject is absolutely static i.e. no leaves moving on the trees. I's a rather limited novelty feature that can't be improved on without a radical increase in sensor read out speed.

    Olympus EM1-X Rumor

    It's also rumoured to be very large for an MFT camera at 144.37mm x 146.765mm x 75.345mm with a built-in grip. That's pretty much the size of a Nikon D810 with battery grip.

    Vimeo's new policy is..... Failure!

    The difference is that YouTube has a mechanism for gathering revenue for the rights holders whereas Vimeo does not. Until they come up with a way of paying rights holders then their only option is to remove infringing material although their methods seem incredibly heavy handed. I don't think that anyone could really object if Vimeo just removed all infringing material but to remove every last trace of the user's account is far too drastic

    Au contraire I had a Business account when I was doing wedding videos professionally. I am now retired from that but kept the videos online as a service for a few of my clients. When I stopped paying for my Business account it transitioned to a Basic account with up to 5GB storage & only 720p versions of the videos. I think there are 20-30 videos online now.

    I have less than 5GB so although they did delete the 1080p they leave 720p versions of all videos. I was countering your claim that they delete "all your files" when clearly they don't but apply the rules you quoted when you revert to a free Basic account.

    Not so. I just checked my old defunct account & all the videos are still there. Once you stop paying Vimeo they host 720p versions of your videos.
  13. Ehh?? What problems have you encountered? A few years ago some ignorant police officers in London used to throw their weight around with press & TV crews until they got re-educated. Here's a link to the advice of the Metropolitan Police regarding street photography which contains this paragraph https://www.met.police.uk/advice/advice-and-information/ph/photography-advice/ You may encounter a hysterical reaction from parents if you start photographing their children but if they are in a public place then it's perfectly legal.

    Intersting survey about bokeh

    Shallow DOF was the aim of amateur & low end pro videographers long before DSLRs for video came on the scene. I was on the point of buying one of those Letus ground glass DOF adapters when I discovered the 5D2.

    Wedding videography advice

    That's very gracious & appreciated. Apologies are such a rarity on this forum & on the Internet in general.
