  1. Old post but an important thread I think... How are you guys going with your IR filtration? I looked into this back in early 2014 and bought the Tiffen T1 and the Indie ND set, 0.3, 0.6, 0.9, 1.2. Last weekend I had a shoot during the day and found a shady tree I used the 1.2ND to bring it down to between f2-f4. This is on my BMCC, YI Optics speedbooster and Zeiss CF.2 28mm. So I forgot to put the T1 on :-/ I didn't notice the IR contamination on my flanders, everything looked great. Back home in Davinci I noticed the IR. We were also running around with a Pocket Camera, Olympus 12mm and a 1.2
  2. I have the 10-22mm zoom and the aperture is not working yet, update 1.3
  3. Hi Andrew, do you think there's much of a future for the EF BMCC? Do the other mounts ie. E or MFT have the same FFD problems between lenses? I'm asking this because my wides, tokina 11-16 & canon 10-22 don't quite hit infinity below f4 below about 14mmm. If I'm not using cine glass should I get this adjusted? Would you?    
  4. Great review Andrew, I had given up the idea of owning this camera but now its back in mind. I've almost pulled the trigger on a 5D MKIII as I own a few EF/EF-S lenses but I just can't justify the video image for the same price (roughly) as the BMCC. I'm already invested in Mac's for recording so I'm thinking of building a Hackintosh.

Holding onto my money at the moment. Looking forward to more on the BMCC
  5. I feel like a Canon junkie on a drip feed. I think Canon think they have all major markets kind of sussed out, does that mean indie film makers are a minority? Its a real slap in the face putting a camera out with no 25p, what? That says to me they begrudgingly put 25p in some of their cameras? I don't understand the explanation or reason given for that either. Can't wait for next years new camera rumours from other brands.
  6. Did we ever find out about the AA filter? How does moire compare to the MKIII?
  7. Good interview, I think it touches on all the important questions for EF owners. :wub: Shutter angle how old school. Is there a warranty on the shutter? :rolleyes: Time for a refresh on shutter angle's...

  8. Interesting, I hadn't noticed how green that shot was from Genius. Reminds me of my room which has subtle green pigment in the cream paint and lit with fluro gives it that green pastey look. Auto WB or custom WB should fix that so I put it down to a creative decision. The juggler green look is something else. A light over head not matching the WB? Not saying its wrong be surprised if it was camera error.
  9. If there wasn't any moire or at least a promise to fix, I'd be considering this camera. I want to ditch my canon because I don't want moire any more aye. The footage looks nice but I'm a tad disappointed. (I've always wanted to use the word tad) I'd happily pay more for this camera to be better considering the competition. Nice shootin, testing of the DOF, slow mo was cool, close ups on Pocahontas to check skin tone wud have been nice ;-)
  10. They are hoping the GH3 gets good sales so they can move the DSLR division into Canon territory. I believe you can't have both stills and video without sacrifices and of course these companies are driven by the Assumption that stills will rule in the future. They won't. Except for Pros and semi-pro photographers. Entertainment is moving pictures not sitting looking at stills... lol. Who sits there looking at stills? I don't, unless I'm showing off my own and showing them off to other shooters. ;-) Anyway.... We need a boutique company to create a DSLR kiss ass Video ca
  11. Lets hope & keep our fingers crossed Panny are listening to the video/film market, I'm dying to get rid of my canon. I'm holding off, but I don't see any other direction to head. I like what BMD are doing, we need more boutique companies like this to cater for the video/film niche market. Then there's this: [color=#000000][font='Helvetica Neue', Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][size=3]An interesting news comes via[/size][/font][/color][url="http://www.handelsblatt.com/unternehmen/it-medien/photokina-panasonic-plant-den-strategiewechsel/7142980.html"] Handelsblatt
  12. @KarimNassar Got to agree with you on that. Its also great to see high profile cinematographers shoot sweet looking video but without knowing all the tech behind the shoot we don't know what sort of animal we are dealing with. Need to compare apples with apples. I too am looking forward to how the Sony A99 & VG900 shape up. I wonder who will be the first to bring out a lower priced FF video camera. Canon have played their cards with the C100/C300 and all the jizz in the P&S range and the fazing out of the Mark II and putting out the 6D which are mainly stills cameras that shoot
  13. I'm ditching my 60D by the end of the year. I got plenty of EF-S glass that will either be sold off or used depending which way I go. It's been an interesting and steep learning curve finding out I'm more into video than stills. If the quality is there with the GH3 and it flies off the shelves that will cause a 6D price drop. There's also the BMC & the VG900 they will be enticing to enthusiasts (like me) who want to stretch for better quality. Looking forward to more hands on reviews with the Panny. Stills are of lessor importance to me than video. I'd be much happie
