  1. hmmm, would you say the footage on the olympus is better then the fuji? or rather, would you say the olympus pics are better than the fuji?
  2. Hi Guys, First some background: I currently own a 5D Mark ii but find that on many occassions I do not use it due to it's size/heft/bulk. I still use it to do stock footage/stills because its the only camera I have, but on travel's and vacations, a lot of the time I cant lug it around all day without it annoying me eventually (but if I leave it in the hotel room, I usually regret missing that "one shot" I could have had if I had dragged it with me all day...). It's a hobby so this isnt my source of income, but my Stock photography has amounted to about $2000 dollars in profits. Now I wanted to purchased a "pocketable" camera that could still produce the quality I need to sell stock footage and stock images while on vacation, without having to lug the largest camera I have with me. I've l looked at the Nex-7 and the Olympus OM-D EM 5? but neither seems to really have that "wow" factor I guess... or rather, neither really jumps at me as a clear winner. I thought about the sony rx100 but the small sensor turns me off a bit ( I enjoy shallow depth of field in my shots, helps with logos in the background for stock footage and stills). The Canon EOS-M seems sorta of good, but I really don't want to pay for a 3 year old sensor that still produces a lot of moire and is sorta muddy in the footage department (much like my 5d mark 2 after seeing the hacked GH2's footage...). I did think about a GH2, used to hack, but that seems more a solution for a big time or prominent footage/cinema style shooter... versus a stock footage producer (plus it isn't THAT much smaller... it's not Nex7 or Canon EOS-M range, imo in size). The one that has caught my attention the most was the Fuji X-Pro1, but the video it produces seems VERY poor, IMO... I did not like it's footage at all (maybe it was a bad sample of footage? but seemed pretty horrible...) It also seems to have a difficult time with focus (slow "by wire" motors in the lenses). SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, having said all that... Am I missing something? is there a clear winner here that I overlooked or have just not realized it's potential? Or should I wait for photokina to pass, and see if something new shows up? Thanks in advance. Sincerely, David :)
  3. [quote name='QuickHitRecord' timestamp='1344402210' post='15103'] Hi David, You'll get a lot more feedback if you post this in the main forum -- this is the anamorphic forum. [/quote] Ahh thanks... I can't seem to find the main forum. When I click on Forum on the top toolbar I get 2 choices... 1. screening room and 2. anamorphic. is there a different way to get to the main section? thanks in advance! EDITL: Nevermind! i FOUND IT. was looking for something that would say forum, it just says EOSHD :) Thnk you again!
