    The Ninja 2 however has waveforms and vectorscopes, which some could argue are much more important.

    Not true! Was never on the blog.
    A forum user started a thread. I kept it open and replied. Didn't want to censor it.
    I am sick of it now and so is nearly everyone else. Thanks for locking the thread Rich.
    You're a talented guy Ed... but please for the love of god... can we have the old Ed back shooting those amazing NY videos.

    IronFilm reacted to bluefonia in What about this new JVC GY-LS300 camera   
    There seem to be no interest here on EOSHD in the new JVC GY-LS300. Just wonder why as it seems to have most - if not more - features than most here on this forum have been hoping for in new Canon/Sony/Panasonic cameras. This camera seems to be quite innovative in several areas. 
    Here is a link : https://vimeo.com/121192570
    Is the lack of interest because JVC is not having a good reputation? Well, Samsung had a so-so reputation before the NX1, right? I¨m by no means a camera tech expert, but this JVC looks pretty interesting. Maybe this camera turns out to be the big surprise of the year

    There is way less guinea pigs than used to be couple years back, even with big manufacturers like Red, BM, etc. Lots of ppl is rather waiting for 2nd generation products. Kickstarter is special teritory itself.

    Really wish it was a s35 sensor with a m43 mount. Choosing between EF and PL is a concern. I have Nikon lenses at the moment but would like to pick up some EF glass at some point but also want PL glass in the future. A more adaptable mount would have been nice.

    Unfortunately, this will be big in the ENG world. I say unfortunately, because I'll have to shoot with it one day. I'm fine with the all in one design, built in ND's, etc. all the the things that make run / gun, doc, ENG style work easier. But I have one major beef  with this design - the EVF should be where the monitor is and side mounted. What Panasonic, Canon and Sony forget with their EX3's, C100/300 and HVX's is that in ENG, Reality, Event and doc world you're often doing takes up to half an hour or more. Holding the camera with two hands out front and your eye on a rear mounted EVF is OK for five minutes or so, but once it goes longer you'll be begging for a 20b proper news camera balanced on your shoulder. I'm sure every ENG cameraman will agree, it's better to be heavy and balanced then light and all on your arms. 

    If they'd just put the EVF where it should be, then it wouldn't take much to rest it on my shoulder with nothing more than minimal rigging (shoulder pad and handles). As it is, to get it on my shoulder will now require mounting a 3rd party EVF or monitor out front on some frankenrigging or slinging it on an easy rig. This obsession Sony, Canon and Panasonic have with the rear mounted EVF is beyond comprehension and shows they beta test with soccer moms and tourists.

    At the time I was looking, the exchange rate pushed it under £2600.... Was SOOO tempted, but A7s ticks more of my boxes... No regrets.

    Surely great initial pricing. But it's just the modular base core. Don't fool yourself that's it then, you're going to want the modules like the viewfinder and the shoulder/tripod kit that they show it with and so on. So you're not quite there for that one price yet.

    IronFilm reacted to DBounce in Blackmagic URSA Mini - $2995 - official thread   
    You're basically looking at Sony FS7 money for this camera. Granted it's a bit higher resolution, but I'm very much leaning towards the Sony.
    I'm guessing the BM will be more difficult to work with. I love the global shutter, but I personally value a higher ISO and built in ND filters more.
    And while the BM camera is very cinematic, I feel that it seems all the images are just a bit darker. I think this camera requires well lite subjects
    to give its best. 
    As for cinematic, the FS7 seems to do a pretty good job at the cinematic look, provided you grade for that look.

    I wouldn't mind an AF100-style body, just a bit slimmer. And I hope they make it easy to match to my GH4.

    Their Cinema EOS range has pretty much killed all hope of the 5dmk4 being anything more than a bombproof stills camera with a below par video function.  Unless ML get hold of it before launch and remove all the crippling features canon include in the firmware.

    I could not imagine that Canon consistently drives the mediocrity.
    Yes, they can.
    1“ sensor, fixed f2.8-5.6,
    64 GB CFast 2.0 for 4k ~ 300,- € !! (64 GB SDXC 10/3 for 4k in GH4 ~ 35 €)
    No EVF, touch screen is nice, but it’s not usable when loupe is mounted to it   
    2.500 $??!! Get a GH4 with 2.8/12-35 instead and you'll have the real thing.  
    I understand better what Canon‘s branding effort means:
    “Canon See Impossible” - We see that it is impossible to catch up with competition

    The way I see it, in today's world with so many other options, there's very little reason to have a video shooting camera without an EVF and titling screen.  The 5DMIV probably won't have either, and probably won't have 4k as well. 
    Canon needs a Super 35 sensor mirrorless camera with EVF and 4k.   This is the camera people need, and it won't step on their Full Frame DSLRs, but will kill them for 4k Video.

    At the sky high price of the XC10 I'd rather spend a little more and get an old second hand C100 and glue a 24-105mm f/4 to it. 
    But yeah.....  not going to do that either. Instead seriously looking at the Samsung NX1, but waiting to see what NAB brings.

    I think, Canon's success with the C models and DSLR-s, especially in the rental-business, is due to the huge amount of quality Canon lenses being around.
    Exactly this benefit is non-existent by this model, with the fixed lens.
    Personally, I would only buy a fixed-lens camera, if the lens is very good, as it could never be changed.
    In this "category" I am waiting/hoping for the RX20 with a 2,8 lens, capable 4K with a reasonable codec.

    I don't usually judge cameras before using them but considering the competition, this camera seems like the flop of the decade. 
    Who do Canon go to for design feedback? Design should be influenced by demand, or spontaneous innovation. Don't see it here.

    Here's the thing though John... I was invested in Canon, both camera and glass.... Then Sony bought out the FS700 and it ticked more of my boxes, so I sold up and moved on. I have since moved on yet again.... I wont cry that Canon or Sony didn;t constantly meet my ever changing needs... I just move to whoever does, say in the knowledge that my needs are not the same as the next man.
    Canon glass fits everything, so I don't see the issue with moving to another platform. Then if Canon do make your dream camera, move back.
    and when I said "These things" I meant canon having an attempt at a niche market... why knock it, choice is great.
