  1. Well the other part of the equation is that digital cameras last a long time for most consumers and semi-pro's. Unless you do timelapse with mechanical shutter beating your shutter to death, how many shots a year do you put on your camera ? 5K ? 10k ? with a shutter good for 150-200K releases you've got 15-25 years worth of life with that camera. Longer if you use it less. Couple that with minor improvements in resolution for mid to lower priced cameras, minor improvements in DR, those two big selling points just aren't . Most cameras are in the 20seomthing megapixel range and even the higher
  2. Well I hate to tell you guys not beleiving product crippling is a thing with a LONG tradition in the video biz. Back in the days of tape, if you wanted TC you were into a top of the line machine. THis was especially true with 3/4" where there were 3 tiers of product - consumer, "industrial", and broadcast. $5K, $10K, $20k. When you bought one of those amazing 1" BVH2000's TC was an _optional_ board. A timebase correcter was an option. A board storing all of 8 lines of NTSC video was an OPTION in the TBC X 3 board slots. Not even a full frame of storage and it was $20k !. The video industry is
  3. Waiting for canon to drop grossly overpriced new C series Cameras soon , then I'll get one a year later when they cut the prices by 30%. they are just so stubborn and stupid despite everyone telling them the same things. No wonder the people at their NAB booth the last year or two have had dont give a F attitudes unles you want to buy a couple $100k box lenses. They are theur own worst enemy and are going to pull a Kodak if they don't cut prices and give people what they want.... said by owner of canon still cameras of 30 years,3 C series cameras, but i quit buying their lenses 10 years agi
  4. Canon should of taken the money from my hand with the EOS R, but they didn't because of all its problems. Instead went with a fuji XT3 as a B cam / gimbal cam. Its an amazing camera for the price. You guys need to get over the full frame fetish because it just doesn't matter, in fact its just plain harder to shoot when it comes to video. reality is APSC / S35 is a rather ideal compromise between sensor size, DoF, DR and everything else you care about. In practical production, you're going to shoot FF a stop more closed down to get some margin of focus in DoF which means you are matching the lo
  5. Tony is a poser. total lack of real technical knowledge but a big pile of BS. I watched maybe 2 of his vids and never again, especially so when he did a review on the sigma 120-300 and they had no clue what they were talking about or doing. it was painful. so just ignore the guy...
  6. 16-235 is NTSC video levels. with analog video transmission now gone, black levels of 0 are acceptable in _digital_ video.. aka DV and other digital video formats. The problem is the 1D is labeling its levels as 601 instead of 709…. or worse yet may be actually putting its image into 601 color space. this could easily cause color mismanagment with some apps if there is no other metadata in the clips to tell them the clip came from a 1D so you have to apply special case color management to correct for the 1D doing things wrong.
  7. first, let me say that Prem Pro does NOT use QT for h.264. It has its own h264 encoder / decoder as part of MediaCore. QT player 7 and X often handle the gamma of files very differently... just how it is. In QT player 7 there is a pref setting for handling gamma like FCP 7 FWIW which may or may not do things right. screen calibration can also cause all sorts of problems too... but back to the original concern. any number of things could be going on. one could be that AVC files are simply being tagged with the wrong color space, or none at all leaving the NLE to guess / assume one. an
