  1. Yes no record timelimits, better codecs, better stabilization features, better viewfinder, better screen, and with a proper metabones speedbooster you’ll be fine with all your canon glass and in low light situations. You’ll need a rode videomic pro though and to get familiar with the menu system. Still less than a C100mk 2 but no built in NDs, XLR, Dual Pixel AF performance. But if you want to structly hover in the $1800 range then the C100 MK 1 is the way to go.
  2. I'd recommend a C100 MK2 primarily for the EVF and the screen but really you could grab a nice 7in monitor for cheap and be good to go with the C100 MK1. Also, the C100 MK2 dual pixel AF will face track with the right lenses. For long form 1080 capture I wouldn't consider any other camera except for the GH5. It has a great HD image and 4k image and is not over priced. It's in your price range and the colors match well with canon. Actually image order: XC10, C100, GH5
  3. Update from Apple that fixes throttling issues with the i9. Im getting much better cpu performance with it. https://www.macrumors.com/2018/07/24/apple-addresses-macbook-pro-throttling/
  4. I just picked one up yesterday as well and im not seeing a massive throttling issue like whats being reported. Im not getting constant 4.8ghz cpu speed. Average 2.2 to 3.5. But im still testing. I coming from a 2013 macbook pro so from a 2016 to 2017 owner the 2018 might not be worth an upgrade.

    C100 Mark ii in 2018

    Yes. 4k is NOT needed for every job and sometimes you need a workhorse to get the job done camera that can perform multipurpose duty and pull solid image. Long battery life, NDs, auto focus, wifi browser control, XLRs, SD dual sd cards, and ergonomically a breeze to use.
  6. In google chrome i can view it in 4K. I just don't see 4k here. It looks like they softened the footage.
  7. I liked it mostly but I thought the footage looked incredibly soft for 4k. Almost like 5DMK3 h264 upscaled to 4k. I know the c200 is soft so it's probably a combination of that and shooting anamorphic.
  8. This looks great! Teaser makes me want to see the film!
  9. Thanks. I'm using the 113 build version. I haven't had any corrupted frames yet. It think it's more likely when using the MLV raw record module. With the higher res dngs you have to use the Footage app to convert to dngs or movs. https://rink.hockeyapp.net/apps/3ed6ecf60e684239a6aba3d407cf3935 As far as the 12bit vs 14bit. It very hard to tell just from visually looking at them. I haven't done much testing to know...but I suspect when in post the 12bit won't feel as color heavy as the 14bit one when grading. I attached a 12bit dng for anyone that wants to play with it. I really want to test this agains the C200 rawlite. I have a feeling that I won't like it as much. M24-0525_C0000_00511.dng
  10. 3.5k Crop Recording test. I was able to get solid continuous recording with the settings below. Raw Record Module/no sound Resolution: 3520x1320 Aspect Ratio: 2.35:1 Bit Depth: 12 Bit Lossless Other notes. I was able to easiy pull focus while recording in 3.5k mode using canon live view in 5x zoom. Using the 3k 1:1 mode with a resolution of 3072x1308 & 2.35:1 ratio I could get continuous recording and pull focus after pressing the zoom button once and using a half press on the shutter button to get a clear live view. With the half shutter the live view zooms in again allowing you to set focus. It may seem fiddly but with these resolutions on a full frame I think it's one of the best ways to check focus.
  11. Sorry about the vagueness. Yep that's what I was referring to. BUT......this morning I was testing out the 3.5 raw(not mlv version) crop recoding feature and was able to use a clean live view with continuous recording. Build 1.1.3 Global draw was off and everything else was off. When I hit the trash can button to go to live view it was the usual buggy look , but when i hit the magnification button it was all clear and I could film using normal non laggy/buggy canon live view "without" any screen data showing. I'll retest when I get off work to confirm it.
  12. Canon 70-200mm f2.8 II and I think the 24-70mm f2.8. Definitely the 70-200 on the closeups. The first 3 shot were mirror reflection shots. If they could stabilize the live view the 5D3 would be a beast.
  13. Not bad. The 1080 does upscale to 4k nicely. Here is a 3k to 4k upscale i did awhile back. I still haven't found a camera that can match the color, detail, motion cadence of the 5DMK3 in raw unless I want to spend a fortune. Canon could really truly rule everyone if they wanted. It's such a tragedy. :-(
  14. Fantastic review and tutorial explanations. From watching I've incorporated the reassignment of the push auto focus and will return to experimenting in shooting in TV mode. I was before and got but away from it.
  15. I really don't see anything that can compete with the GH5. For about $2000 + the cost of a speedbooster you have a incredibly power tool that is mobile AND has excellent in body stabilization. After renting the GH5 and seeing the 400mb codec and not the 5k open-gate...I look at my canon gear with contempt. All except for the 5DMK3 but only due to the magic lantern team.
  16. Rented the GH5 to test it out and Im pretty impressed. I was able to match the GH5 to 5D Raw 4k footage and color. Below is a test with an GH5, XC10, and C100. Try to guess which camera is which. GH5 axis stabilization test.
  17. It can definitely look cinematic. I've been on the fence about this camera...but it's just to hard to ignore it's features per price. Especially with the news of the new 400mb codec.
  18. To be brutally honest....Most camera reviewers and early adopters do a PISS poor job of filming good subject matter and showing off the strengths of the camera being evaluated. They WASTE so much time blabbing about tech specs and and showing themselves on screen TALKING about features of the camera VS shooting something and SHOWING the features. No one wants to watch 3 minutes of a talking head and 1 minute of sample clips. Take for instance the C100...folks swear its merely a documentary camera. Below are some test shots I took for a web series I'm working on with the C100MK2. Clog with light grade upscaled to 4k. I'm betting the C200 looks even better.
  19. 5DMK3 Raw 3k upscaled to 4k. The first shots are filmed in a mirror's reflection so they are not as sharp. I really hope the C200's raw is similar to this.
  20. What's this C200B? Interesting. It's listed at $5,9999 The Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Camera offers cinematographers the same camera without these accessories and the EVF to optimize shooting using a gimbal, drone or a variety of other configurations. The Canon EOS C200 and Canon EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras sport the same 8.85MP CMOS sensor, that combines with a newly developed dual DIGIC DV6 image processing system to help process high-resolution image data and record video from Full HD (1920×1080) and 2K (2048×1080) to 4K UHD (3840×2160) and 4K DCI (4096×2160). A core staple of the third generation Cinema EOS System, this new processing platform offers wide-ranging expressive capabilities and improved operation when capturing high-quality HDR video. The Canon EOS C200 and EOS C200B Digital Cinema Cameras are scheduled to be available in August 2017 for estimated retail prices of $7,499** and $5,999** respectively. The EOS C200 comes equipped with additional accessories including the LM-V1 LCD Monitor, LA-V1 LCD Attachment, GR-V1 Camera Grip and HDU-2 Handle Unit. These accessories will also be sold separately and available in September 2017. http://www.canonrumors.com/canon-u-s-a-announces-new-canon-eos-c200-and-eos-c200b-digital-cinema-cameras-in-continued-expansion-of-cinema-eos-system/
  21. http://www.canonrumors.com/hands-on-with-the-canon-cinema-eos-c200-pricing/ As far as pricing goes, the new camera will be priced at £7,699 in the UK or $7,499 in US and is scheduled to begin shipping in July. Definitely adding this to my kit.
