    IronFilm reacted to mercer in B&H Photo - largest seller of camera gear in USA exploits workers   
    This is union muckraking, and I'm sorry, but anyone who doesn't see through this is stupid. This is the 21st Century US, not 40's Nazi Germany or behind the Iron Curtain. If the job is less than safe, then quit. They're not being forced to work there. Why weren't they reported to OSHA for their allegedly poor safety practices?I'm sorry but the timing of this expose' and the timing of the unionization of the BH workers are just too close to be called coincidental. And this nonsense that they aren't allowed to go to the bathroom... If you work a job that won't let you poop when you have to poop and you comply to their no pooping on the job policy... Then... You probably deserve to work that job. 
    EDIT: I apologize "stupid" is a strong word, I should have said misinformed or naive.

    Regarding the saying that they didn't mention this is a Jewish owned store, Aljazeera do that it in a much smarter way, they just put a front photo with a Jew standing there. Bang, target accomplished.

    Full size HDMI and dual SD slots is so sweet, wish more cameras did this. Heck, if the GH5 did this I'd be stoked!

    Has anyone taken into account that maybe this camera is a bit bigger because it has dual SD slots and full size HDMI, and maybe they just chose not to have any overheating issues. Also their lenses for this system are quite big and heavy, so I don't believe that photographers would be very happy with a heavy standard zoom on a tiny body.

    Also, unless you have the money or making that kind of money I would say the Sony FS7 (around 10K with everything) is definitely not a personal camera and structured more towards a working professional with clients. The most I would go is the Sony Fs700 around $5k as I know you could easily make money back doing corporate jobs and commercials, it's an excellent slow-motion camera as well that many clients use for music videos.

    I would be very surprised if it did. The brain is much more clever than that. You can switch back and forth as you choose. It's like knowing both how to ride a bike and roller skate. We are capable of more skills than one.

    I'm guessing Blackmagic grew faster than expected and wasn't prepared. They're still a relatively small company (compared to the giants). They'll either have to stay the course and be more accurate with a Q4 camera release schedule, or grow bigger and meet those early release dates.

    Personally I thnk no internal ND's was a mistake especially since they advertised as being a run and gun camera. I think they like to think of themselves as making cinema cameras, shich they do, but forget their main market is more of the DSLR crowd that would prefere to not use a mattebox and to keep something like the Mini, mini. Regardless that was there decision and that is fine but that was not really my point. The answer given as to why they didn't add it was total BS.

    IMO, its the consumers that need to learn how it works.
    They have done it 4 years in a row.
    But still we have these never ending amount of posts and threads, "When?", "Im angry!", "If its not here by..", bla bla bla
    It will ship when its done and all there is to do is wait or buy something else. Bumping or starting threads like this wont make shipp any faster or make Blackmagic change their way.
    Its the price we pay for the best image produced by a CMOS in the world

    IronFilm reacted to KrisAK in B&H Photo - largest seller of camera gear in USA exploits workers   
    I'm wondering why these charges aren't being handled via the US Federal Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), or the office of the NY Attorney General (which dictates guidelines regarding shift break and mealtime requirements.) The fact that the United Steelworkers Union is already involved suggests this is more about conventional Big Union pushing its own agenda than it is about anything unique to B&H.
    As for eBaying your way to a clear conscience: how do you know you're not buying from a homophobic racist in Back-creek County, USA?

    This whole story smells fishy. If it is soo horrible, then don't work there.
    They aren't slaves.
    The part that made me question them is the stacks of pallets bit... An electronics pallet is probably 5 feet tall, so 3 high sounds like normal practice to me. And then they speak of not being trained... It sounds like union rhetoric. As if B&H, one of the largest camera stores in America is going to allow untrained fork lift drivers barreling around millions of dollars of fragile merchandise.

    Well regarded by you maybe, but not everyone, which is the point. They lost all credibility with me when they were doing all the coverage of the Egyptian uprising. The Muslim Brotherhood was paying and supplying people to do the protests and riots and Aljazeera dutifully helped sell the whole deception.

    Ursa mini is completely new and early adopters will have to live through it's inevitable bugs and quirks. F5 is a proven work horse.
    You can also knock down the media costs by using qxd cards with adapters for internal recording.
    Plus internal ND, plus significantly more light sensitivity.
    And zero percent financing over 2 years is extremely nice from a business perspective.

    IronFilm reacted to Kristoferman in Interesting new deal on the Sony F5   
    So this was being discussed a bit in the ursa thread but I feel it deserves its own topic. 
    Sony is now offering the F5 for $15,900. 24 month 0% financing.  The 4K internal model. This price includes the sony viewfinder, shoulder pad, tripod mount, sxs reader, full copy of davinci resolve AND the brand new a7s II camera. 
    Seems like a pretty interesting deal! Does the f5 record ten bit prores to the shogun? I assume the internal 4K is 8 bit?
    So do you guys like the deal?  Definitely an enticing package, no?

    I wouldn't abandon the idea of the fz1000 so quickly. Think about pairing it with the G7. You can practically get the G7 and the FZ1000 for the price of the NX1.

    Hello folks,
    So I'm currently shopping for a G7 and Ive seen a pretty great deal online from someone selling them out of Korea. Now I'm currently just doing my homework but I can't seem to.find this answer anywhere else.
    Because this person is selling it out of Korea I suspect that it is a European or Asian model of this camera. I just want to know if the Global version of this camera has the same options as the North American one would. (I.E. 24fps vs. 25)
    Thanks!

    manilo, you can get focal reducers for a mere hundred bucks or so. (if you're going for Nikon F mount, rather than pricey Canon EF)
    When it comes to stills performances, GH4 is more than capable for the typical non-pro. And for stills (as well as obviously video) it will be a step forward over your current 600D.
