    if the BMPCC speedbooster fits, like it does on the GH4 for those brave enough to try it, that'll get you to a 1.10x crop.

    What I think is unfair is the fact that GH4 users that already paid for VLOG need to pay again if they want it on GH5. Panasonic should at least  provide a reduced "upgrade" price.

    premini got a reaction from Tim Fraser in Canon 1D X Mark II review part 1 - why superior colour means it's game over for my Sony A7S II   
    Totally agree with your review if you talk with the professional photographer hat put on.
    For an enthusiast like me the article has no point. I love tweaking my A7s footage and photos, once you practice you can get good results in no time and with a better DR than Canon's.
    OT: i seriously dont get whats the deal with this grey-is-the-new-black look.

    The good things first :
    1.finally an article about a camera comparison with a video, haven't seen that in a while here.
    2. Seems like a good combo (good stills camera with decent video, however lacking resolution.) thought for the price it should be, and that's about it with good points.
    the bad :
    1. PRICE, for real ? are we seriously even considering to compare a 6000+ camera to a 2400 one ? the price is just astronomical (people buy cars for their families for this price)
    2. easy pleasant COLOR - :D this made me laugh. So you are saying that this camera gives you awesome color straight out of the box, no need to edit, yeah perfect, the thing is I dont know any pc (under another 5000)  that would even be able to edit that mjpeg 500mbps shit. AND this is a subjective matter. Andrew you forgot to mention that Chris and Jordan specifically said that many many times over in the view that this is purely subjective. Moreover they are testing sub 2000 cameras with some being much less. Honestly i disliked the color in that video, oversaturated, punchy, crushed blacks, frankly this video is far from pleasing on account of colors and DR. bleh but that is just me. some may love unnatural red over saturated punchy color. 
    3. DR - do you honestly think that this footage with the edit you did has better DR than a7s ... suddenly it's no issue ? the footage looks like it's from a 7d.
    4. Crop factor 1.3 IS NOT full frame. Everyone being disappointed  by 1.6-1.7 on 5d IV and 1.3 on a 6000 body is okay ? please.
    The awful:
    5. That thing is enormous. good luck stabilizing that. (another rise in costs)
    6. No articulating screen
    7. No focus peaking on a body for 6000 ? lol
    8. 8bit for 6000 ? lol
    9. Codec
    I mean, if anyone is doing sports photography and can justify the price, go for it sure, for video ? you'll be back to ILCS or real 10bit cameras in few weeks after using this dinosaur 
    oh and i forgot , the ugly :

    Cheers, meant no offense thanks for taking time to review, keep them coming !!!

    Panavision Anamorphics have only flare subtly. It's enough to show up, but not enough to draw attention. Perfect, IMO.

    I don't see these as rentals at all. Maybe VERY low-end rentals, but a lot of owner ops--the types with Amiras and REDs--will probably jump on these.

    premini got a reaction from Damphousse in Canon profits down 16% as demand for old-style DSLRs continues to slide   
    The camera market is getting smaller. This in part due to cell ptones and also because of people that are happy with their cameras from 3-5 years ago and don't see the point of getting a new one (i know many of these).
    I think that's the logic behind Sony's strategy of putting a lot of new features in order to allure people that don't see the point of getting the 7d II instead of the 7d.
    That's also why all of the manufacturers , not only canon, are thinking about diversifying. People wont change the camera 2 times in a year. not even once.

    The fact that they cut corners and gave it a cheap and easy to make helicoid with a rotating front element goes a long way in advising what to expect with their selection of glass.

    ​Exactly my thoughts, this guy says that their target audience is people that cant afford Cookes and Arris (i.e. 99% of the people) 
    Basically we rent this kind of high end anamorphics right?
    So unless they come up with a 3-5k lens i don't see the point of buying it when you can rent a better quality lens.

    premini got a reaction from Cosimo murgolo in Baby Hypergonar + Switar 50mm   
    Here's some family footage i recorded some time ago with the BMPCC, the Kern Paillard Switar 50mm and the "Baby" Hypergonar.
    I love the Switar-Baby combination, i wish there would be a wider alternative with the same characteristics as the Switar.
    Images are out of focus in half of the shots sorry about that, it was very dark.
    For the "bokeh shots" i used 2 stacked tokinas 0.4.
    What do you guys think of it?

    premini reacted to richg101 in FM lens discount   
    with niche items it takes a certain person to go ahead and actually develop and manufacture such things.  There are a million ideas men, only 100 of them have the balls to put money into those ideas rather than sitting in an office with a manager dictating their success., and only 10 of those 100 have the ability to put everything in motion and actually deliver such items.  
     
    We're a limited market and should be thankful someone is going through with this!  Most people spend their money on new mobile phones and eating out / drinking themselves to death in order to forget their boring lives.  If these things weren't being made, we'd be doing the same as the masses.
