  1. I have the Sony A7 III in my mind. If someone has it and have found big problem, please tell me. And a couple of basic questions: does it overheat?? Can you record a couple of hours straight?? Thanks!
  2. Start small, it's easier to grow than to shrink! Why americans can't do anything without insurance?? In Europe we just insure cars, and because you are forced to!!!
  3. I have work in several film festivals, even created one from scratch. Mostly when there were 10% of the festivals that now exists. Main factors: Public: You need people watching the films, besides the boy/girl/friends of directors. Maybe you can sync your festival with some other event that assures you people. All the festivals that survive do so because they have a public. Selection: Local short-films are a good start for easiness, but most will probably suck (sorry for the lack of optimism). So either accept only short ones (less than 5 minutes) or comedies, you can't accept
  4. 8K is good for VFX/360º only, but we will probably see it in wedding videos and porn too!
  5. Eric your dedication will pay off!!! Thanks a lot!!!
  6. I am often right in my predictions, but never tried to make money from it! GoPro should have made a GoPro PRO model, but long time ago.
  7. I saw it several days ago, italian dubbed, 2D, in a nice theater choosed by the sound system. The film was too loud because several people complained about it. I think that's what marketing departments are good at, fuck things up. The louder the audio, the happier the people?? Make their ears bleed!!! In Italy most theaters project films in two parts, to sell pop-corn during the break. So I had a 10 minute break in the middle to complain about this really absurd costume!!! But in any case I loved the film, even if there were a couple of moments where I didn't understand very well. (Spoile
  8. Hello! I was contacted to make a recording of a musical which has two one hour long parts. I need to rent a 4K camcorder which wont give me heating or other problems. I would appreciate a lot some recomendations, mostly if they come from people who have tested it! Thanks!
  9. I used to VJ on a 20" iMac I carried around as a notebook. Good old times! It better be fast, at 5000$ the new iMac Pro!
  10. Let's hope Panasonic is talking about h265 so Apple supports it properly in FCP X.
  11. Macs make only sense if you go FCP X. If you use Adobe/Resolve, it's better/cheaper to go PC.
  12. FCP X doesn't seem, RUNS much faster than any other program. I tried to Macproof myself learning DaVinci, but it makes my Macbook run as a Commodore 64!!!
  13. Like in any Mac vs PC debate, people mixes things. I paid FCP X 180€ when it got out, several years ago. I edit 4K h264 with FCP X in my 2013 MacBook Pro and I find it a very pleasing system to work with. And yes, it gets warm. Macs are normally well made (I didn't have any problem with keys). And I don't have any problem paying a premium price for these vantages. I can use any Macbook to be in a Starbucks. My complain is the premium has been increasing year after year. First it was a 50%. Then Macs costed double. With the new Macbook Pro with options, I feel that you can get the same po
  14. Apple hates pro users. It's the only explanation. The new Macbook Pro is a joke. We don't need thinner, we need more power. It's true that FCP X is so well written it compensates a lot. But they should think about power users, every once in a while.
  15. The interest about reviews is mostly which is the drawback of a new product. Years ago cameras where simpler and it was easier to choose a camera, mostly pointing to IQ. Nowadays with factors as heating, codec, color rendition, battery life, memory type, etc. There are so many factors, most cameras are good in some aspects and worse in others. But as Andrew say, you must read 20 pages of marketing blablabla to (not) find the answers we need. Integrity is not easy. That's why we have to support those who at least aim at it!
  16. OMG, that is MY life!!! ;-)) When you talk about being honest or a contract, I would invite you to Italy. I have lost clients because in the briefing for the first video I tried to make them understand basics like "you can't put a Michael Jackson song on your video for YouTube"/"you can't ask infinite revisions". A contract is sci-fi and hourly pay hard sci-fi. Here everything is flat-rate which barely covers your expenses. Then another thing that irritates me is when the client gives you zero briefing/ideas/support. You came with a nice concept, build the whole video on it. And whe
  17. Calvin, I would love to test your LUTs, but have none of the cameras you worked on! ;-)
  18. Maybe your unit is faulty. If Sigma worked an adaptor for their lenses, it should work at least as other adapters out there??
  19. I arrived at my conclusion a long time ago. After several months using Photoshop in english, I tried it in spanish. I couldn't find "Blur"!!! ;-))
  20. Programs must be used in english. It's a limit that helps everyone!
  21. I searched and found 51.6% of people with the right to vote in US were women. And Trump won. Humanity embraced masochism.
