  1. I rented the XC10 to use to supplement 5D Raw and the Blackmagic Pocket cam on a wedding shoot this past weekend to see how it would preform. It was used mainly on the DJI Ronin M and handheld in some instances. I have a ton of footage from it. Some in 4k and some in HD. - First lol...the lens does NOT slide out if pointed straight down - Clog is my favorite shooting profile. I would not bother with the others. It grades pretty well. I had a semi newbie manning the XC10 while i shot on the 5D just incase there was a issue with magic lantern. The auto focus worked well however the guy
  2. ​No sure about the PC. On Mac I use RawMagic drag and drop to convert MLV or the Raw file in to DNGs. Very easy. If i want to preview before converting....I can use MLV viewer to playback, grade and export the MLV file to either DNGs or or mov format and grade in Resolve lite. It really comes down to your system on how easy it is.
  3. Guess no one bothered to look at the video I posted earlier. It seemed to work well for that guy.
  4. Agreed. I think people will be surprise at how well this camera preforms. I remember when the C100 came out and everyone trashed it's image. I'm definitely going to pick one up vs Frankensteining a blackmagic 4k micro...which after you add the cost of out lens, monitor/recorder....is pretty close to the XC10's price point, not as compact, and needs longer setup time to shoot. https://vimeo.com/124969658​ I think alot of people will be surprised at how good this camera is. It hits all the check marks for a specialty cam i'm looking for and I don't think the price is to much for what it
  5. And just when I was about to write that camera off.....ZERO complains on that image quality.
  6. I like the XC10. I don't always want to fumble around with a large camera and tote a bag full of lenses around with me. This could hold me over until the 5D MK4 arrives.
  7. Looks like a great camera feature wise.
  8. Excellent....this is exactly what a canon rep at CES told me would happen. Much more sensible pricing.
  9. Got a bit of interesting news. I just got back fro CES in Las Vegas. I visited the Canon Cinema booth and had a chance to look at the 7D mark 2 and the 1DC. I really love the auto focusing capabilities of the 7D. It's really impressive and I may pick one up. In regards to the 1DC. They told me to not be surprised to see a price drop this year on the 1DC to something close to what Andrew got his for. They said it would be in response to the Sony FS700's price point. I asked about the possibility of a 1DC mark 2. They said that it would occur in the future, but no estimated dates were g
  10. Pretty innovative and fun concept but I'm not sure I could survive an entire feature in POV.
  11. Utterly pathetic stance by Canon. They really don't care about dslr video shooters. Regarding the 7D mark 2...I am interested to see what Magic Lantern people are able to get out of it. 60fps magic lantern raw would be of interest to me. Other than that...I have no reason to look at any dlsr cameras from Canon anymore for video applications.
  12. Mine arrive today. Ordered on July 17 Shipped on the August 1st. Very impressed with the size and performance. It will supplement my 5D Raw very nicely.

    C100 video

    Canon's colors are unmatched.
  14. The price will probably rise on the distributors sites...it's back to the $995 on the blackmagic site. I'm glad I pulled the trigger on one.
  15. Yep...your right. Went back and check it out. Thanks.
  16. Has anyone here tried changing the to the GPU Ray Trace render setting in After Effects? I like Davinci Resolve but I also like Adobe Camera Raw better. I tried it out with it vs CPU and it improved my render times dramatically. A 2 hour DNG sequence went down to 12 minutes. This was done using a 2014 Macbook Pro with Intel Iris Pro Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M and 2GB GDDR5 memory.
  17. That was an incredible display of low light capabilities. I'm willing to work around the jello to gain access to that level of low light performance. I may have to rig the camera out more but I would not have to carry around as many lights, light stands, extension cords etc. It's crazy how fast technology is advancing....5..10 years from now I can't begin to fathom what will be possible at the $3k price point.
  18. If you budget is strictly $1500 - $2000....go with the AX100.
  19. I've been going back an fourth with this same question myself. Every time I go into Best Buy I go play with it and try to convince myself that I don't need it. It is a great "utility knife camcorder" to have in your arsenal. I think it would be great for run n gun setups and other things where you don't want to fiddle with lenses, adaptors, dslr type rigs. The zoom is excellent and that 4k is good so long as you don't zoom in...then you get into jello hell.
  20. Man....now I want to get rid of my Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4.
  21. I had a chance to play with the Sony AX100 in Best Buy last week. This rolling shutter is JUST LIKE IT in 4K mode. I will say that the AX100 did have a great image in 4K and the rolling shutter in 1080 mode was not bad at all.
  22. I don't see what the big deal is. There is nothing wrong or misleading with the title of this article. And this business about who posted what first...as if this is going into some official peer reviewed journal is laughable.
