  1. Not sure if you've had the chance or desire to mess with it, but any comments on the 1080 video quality would be much appreciated! I'm still not necessarily fond of the idea of shooting 4K for a lot of things workflow wise
  2. ^funny you should post that. I just purchased an olympus XA last week. Totally love it and thought it resembled the RX1 in concept.
  3. I'm not sure what the used rate is, but the Canon 85mm 1.8 is a fantastic lens for not much more than that new. You could probably get one from 200-300 used. 
  4. I honestly dont even know what technology they are reffering to. An ef mount? Lol
  5. Unbelievable. Don't even know what to say to this    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tz83mQTgkcI&feature=youtu.be  
  6. Fairly simple question here, just seeking opinions and solutions.   I want to have 2 cameras, a 5d Mark 3 and a T2i, mounted side by side on the same tripod. I'll be filming some interviews and need a wide and tight shot.    Anyone used any type of bracket to achieve this with success? I have a fairly cheap flash bracket that will fit both cameras, but its a bit flimsy and I'm not sure it would support the weight of the t2i off to the side. 
  7. How about a firmware update for my $3,000+ camera, canon? Please :)
  8. This seems to be the opinion of many, including me! I feel like Olympus is sitting on a gold mine here.    I hope the final product looks a little closer to the original e-m5. This is a bit ugly :/

    BMCC 4K Gets 50/60i?

    Seems like a good time to ask. What is the point of interlaced footage?
  10. Really? A request for a panning shot, a dolly/slider shot, and simple lit shot is a "huge" production?    Heck interesting composition and a tripod with something actually happening in the frame would be a great place to start. 
  11. I'm certainly not asking for helicopters, jibs, cranes, etc. A simple interview, maybe a studio lit and more natural lit one, would be wonderful. A few dolly shots, maybe a simple tripod pan. I don't feel like I'm asking for TOO much! :) I'm sure someone will get there hands on it and something like this will surface at some point. I just wouldn't want to be an early adopter without seeing it in action
  12. This might be the most boring video on the internet. I really wish they would give the camera to someone who would put it through its paces
  13. I am wondering this as well. I need a new static camera for weddings - the RX100 kept overheating on me and wasn't cutting it. Anyone?
  14. Sadly no!    You'll probably want to look at either the Nikon d5200 or the Panasonic GH3. Tons of reviews of those on this site. 
  15. what exactly are you shooting at night. Short films? Documentaries? Cats?   C100 is a great option for night shooting and no aliasing. 5D is also great at those and the raw hack is available.    Blackmagic is not great in low light, and has a bit of moire here and there
  16. I have to say this has been the strangest product release/business model i've ever seen. But I'm certainly not complaining. I'm certainly excited to use the black magic as a rental for a documentary i'm shooting next summer, hoping rental prices drop accordingly! 
  17. Please do - i've been considering picking one up but have yet to hear any really good examples. 
  18. WOMP WOMP. Cue sad trombone sound.    This is just foolish if true. 
  19. You'll probably be hard pressed to find someone on this forum that has actually used both of them. The hypercardioid pickup pattern leads me to believe it is probably similar in use to the NTG-3 -very directional with good off-axis rejection, though I can't comment on the sound because I haven't used it.    gearslutz.com is a great audio forum that has tons of gear reviews and questions. You might be able to find more specifics on each of the mics there!
  20. The 17-50 is really a pretty nice lens. Definitely more versatile than the 11-16 and the IS is a huge plus. 
  21. Shotgun mics are great for indoor and studio use. Unless its just a really really small room, and then it likely won't sound good regardless.   Shotgun mics do the best job of picking up sources directly in front of them, and rejecting sounds from the sides. This would include echo from the walls of smallish rooms. Heres a nice primer on b&h   http://www.bhphotovideo.com/indepth/audio/buying-guides/shotgun-microphones   The Rode ntg-3 is pretty great, and a nice bit under $1,000
  22. I saw plenty of aliasing throughout, and a bit of noisy shadows
  23. Honestly im not even mad at canon, just confused. Do they not want to make money? It seems like they dont. Really confusing behavior
