  1. I have a Canon 7D from the beginning, it has served me well. It is very nice to hold for taking pictures. I still have it just to take pictures, with a Canon 50mm f1.8 and a Sigma 30mm f1.4. It has been years I don't use for video!!!
  2. Wow, who would have thought we will be all excited for a Samsumg camera??
  3. Only problem for me with the FZ1000 is that 37mm is not wide enough! I should find a wide angle adapter. But the rumours you are talking about a LX100 sound really good!!!
  4. At least use a Vaio notebook to change the .txt file!!!! :P
  5. In a free world Sony can sell whatever they want at whatever the price. And we buyers should decide what to buy or not. Nobody argues that. But as Andrew and others say, if a multi-thousand euros difference is just a couple lines of code, owners will probably be favorable to the hack, so the cat vs mouse situation starts and never ends! It takes balls to test a hack on a 16K$ camera too!!!
  6. Come on Radiohead don't be shy!!! ;-DD It's really difficult for anyone to make a video just with the footage you have. Even more with electronic/dance music, in which you need "pulsating" images. So next time you are shooting, remember to zoom on particles that fly, water that flows, some unfocused shots, anything that moves quick!!! I used to VJ, so I really made house music videos in real-time! You can watch a demo-reel:
  7. The fact is good and I hope it got you money and will get you more work! But the edit really doesn't connect the images with the music. Is dull and has no rythm! It makes no justice to neither the music nor to your images! You would have made a x1000 better job!!!
  8. The Music Bed is great music, but for most little companies, $399 just for the music in a video is really too much. A price from 20€ to 50€ for legally/properly made music is a great idea!!!
  9. It is a very honest move, I hope they make a "must buy" camera!
  10. First question that came to my mind was: if they can make money selling it at 3K$, how much money were they making selling it at 4K$??
  11. This time Panasonic has tried to offer something really nice. The brick maybe ugly, but could bring 4K multicam to the masses!
  12. Tony Wilson, making people rich!!! I have the same Tokina Achromat with a red Redstan Adapter, accepting offers.
  13. Congratulations on the video Andrew! It's wonderful! I worked as a VJ for several years and I can tell you this video could be projected and make any club cooler!!!
  14. Andrew this video is fantastic and most shots look great, even those shot at night-time..... (pixel peeping mode ON) But I see noise in a couple of shots I wasn't expecting, in the Pratengarten entrance and in second 44 (the lake) where it doesn't seem there is low light. Did you add some noise in post?? Thanks!
  15. Yes, I understand that. But from the video, it all seems a long sequence, no cuts. So I really think a lot of programming work was needed! A making-off is utterly necessary! ;-DDD Video-mapping isn't new, it can be wonderful, even if most examples I have seen are more like "presets" than custom/well thought material...
  16. If you think jazz musicians "improvise" real-time, then you can believe this short has been done "real-time". Jazz musicians must study music and their instrument for years before they can improvise. To make this short "real-time", they have worked for days, probably weeks. Programming movements can't be improvised.  I agree a making-off would be great! 
  17. Just for reference, the italian BBC1, RAI1 is actually broadcasting in SD 4:3. Digital terrestrial TV, is horribly implemented and you more often that not get glitchy videoart instead of your favourite program. We haven't even Full HD working for all of us and now they want 4K 120fps..... I hope the next Mac Pro is not THAT expensive!
  18. We all love happy ends and the black-hole seems 100% fixed, but the white-blobs have been improved, can we call them solved??
  19. Probably this video specs castration is consequence of the deal with Sony.
  20. As nlw said, there are a lot of adapters for a 2x anamorphic. I am not a fan of flares, but I like very much the start of this video and some shots are really "cinema" ready.  When the focus is close resolution suffers, maybe too much.  Of course it depends on the final price!
  21. I forgot about the Nikon, you are right!    Let be honest about RED, it has been bought by people who makes movies or people with too much money. I don't think they have sold many, but they have shaken the audiovisual market to the root. Now BMD is doing this for the rest of us. Let's show some love instead of hate!
