  1. For a second I read F55, not FS5, and got really excited!
  2. Dude after this article, http://www.eoshd.com/2014/10/sony-a7s-review-part-2-conclusion/ Really? You can make some mistakes granted, all the mistakes you want! It's just the super professional tone of the articles that get's one thinking. I have actually bought two of your books, the GH4 guide and the 5D raw guide, and when there are these radical changes in opinion one really has to think if the books too might also be wrong insights into gear and their implementation. No offense, but I really am quite a bit confused.
  3. Very nice Andrew, thanks a lot. I have a shoot with a Sony F3 with external recorder this sunday but I will take my mark III to make some tests!
  4. Hello, great review.   I have a question. Does the Zeiss Jena 20mm focus to infinity on the GH3?   Thanks!
  5. I am very excited too about the BMC. As I said in my first post, I probably will buy it or rent it extensively. I have to say most of the stuff you write in your article are spot on: the dynamic range, the RAW, and, for me specifically, the 12-bit color space. This last feature is priceless for effects heavy work. Maybe I might have gone overboard labeling the article as fanboyish, but I do read it, as I said as unnecesarily one sided. Yes, the camera is undeniably exciting. But I don't think it is superior to the 5DM3 on several crucial aspects which I felt (keep in mind is my opinion) where
  6. I guess not Mark. But since in the comparison there is a price point thing, I would get it straight from the get go, which is my gripe on this particular article. I am not criticizing EOSHD as a whole, and I have to say I have used a lot of the tech advice posted on this page. What I don't agree with is the fanboyish attitude that contributes to an unnecesarily one sided review.
  7. Listen, I am not going to argue anymore than what I will be posting here so I will just adress this last comment. I cannot replace innacurate with not for you simply becuase you state that both cameras are 3000 dollars. To get the BMC up and running, you need a little more, asi I have stated above. I cannot change biased with what works for the majority, including me, because as you have said, you only work as a narrative filmmaker. And there are all sorts of filmmakers: wedding, documentary, news shooters, advertising (my specialty), etc. You can try to pigeonhole me as a ESPN polo shooter,
  8. I am not implying anything. If you read what i wrote farther up, you can see why I consider it biased and innacurate. AND in your article you never specify that the BMC is better for YOUR particular needs. You can try to make me look ridiculous all you want with jokes and phrases like Again you have forgotten that the article wasn't written as free personal one to one consultancy for Ruben Fernandez and the specific needs of Ruben Fernandez, but the truth is that your article is both innacurate and biased. you wrote Which should you choose? regarding the cameras, not which should I choose. S
  9. Administrator your opinion is yours and you have are in all your right to express it. But I think many people who are looking to buy or rent this camera will do so on a very broad spectrum of needs, not just narrative filmmaking. I for one shoot mainly tv commercials and in truth the BMC is going to be an awesome camera for this need. But it your article IS very biased and I cannot really appreciate as a truly objective comparison between the cameras, inputing all (or at least most) of the diferent needs and requirements, and not downplaying the virtues of one camera so the other seems far sup
  10. Also Cameraboy I am very little inclined to "revolutions" and "game changers". I come from a film background and most of my early career I shot on 16mm and 35mm film. The only thing the new HD cameras have brought to me are the aesthetic qualities of film I missed when shooting on F900 or HVX 200 early cameras for a much lower price. But image wise, I am just returning to the look I studied and began working with early on.
  11. Let's be clear cameraboy, I am not bashing the camera. And what you say about fall-off and loss of res on the corners is totally true, it is a limitation. In real life (and I say in real life because I am generally shooting actual stuff, not doing tests or pixel peeping) I find that these limitations are not as critical to the overall feel of a shot, than the distorsion caused, not on a brick wall, but on the face of an actor or model (I mostly shoot commercials, where beauty is paramount) and I can tell you, the distorsion of a 24 or 25 photography lens (and I use Carl Zeiss Zf.2s) is not acc
  12. This article is very unfortunate for it's very innacurate information on many fronts, in particular it's bias towards a product which very few people have actually used. I think the BMC looks like a great product but until people start putting out REAL material, not tests, we won't know for sure about it's performance. First of all, unfortunately, the BMC is NOT 3000 dollars. You have to buy SSDs and an external power solution that will set you back at least $1000 dollars more. This is specially true if you already own a 7D or 5DM2 that uses the same power, same cards, and overall is the sam
