  1. My earlier essay on this topic. We live in strange age. We are being overloaded by images of different kinds every minute or even seconds. We live in a world which is being mediated or put in Baudrillard term - the world is being simulated. The capitalist' democracy made all gear (cameras, recorders, cellphones with cameras) available to the great number of people. It might sound like a dream for all those artist they struggled to get their gear only a dacade ago. Thus, it is not suprising at all that so many people try their hand at film-making these days. But this great number of people eng
  2. ​Everyone here has either panasonic gh4 or sony a7s because andrew like them better :))
  3. As Jimmy said, it's a camera that won't make you want to sell it in like 1 or 2 years, because of the great image. You can get it for 470€ now here: http://syntex.sk/p/blackmagic-pocket-cinema-camera/c/cameras-digital-cinematography?lang=EN#3
  4. ​But not only those days. But we praise 60s and 70s "waves" because they don't feel that old as Griffith or Feuillade... Of course there were tons of crappy movies! No doubts about it. But if you read about how Godard and the other struggled to get a little money to make their film! It's much easier. On vimeo there're many user that have about the same budget but they "probably" never make a movie with such high impact as those films. Another example - Mekas had to borrow money to buy his first bolex. Let's say that bmpcc/ghX is about the same level as Bolex. But you don't have to take a lo
  5. ​I was talking about 60s and 70s :o) at that time critique had much bigger audience and influence and critique itself was evolving more than ever....
  6. Yes, it's ok. You can do whatever you want with your camera and your footage. But it's pity that people don't use their gear to film their environment in more meaningful way than just test that has been done x times before and its benefit is close to zero. ​Well, it's debatable. But I don't expect high impact... as none cares. The old good days when critique had an influence to kick up a debate are gone.
  7. Yes, we do. But on the other hand all of them are not necessariy​ bad. And they can be pretty handy if you are in market for a new camera. But - as I mentioned earlier the problem is there're way too many of these around the web. And sure, it's easier to make these test than meaningful project. And what works on internet more then elsewhere, is that people do what everyone else is doing. And that creates almost endless circle until the hype dies.
  8. ​The problem with vimeo and youtube is that there're way too many "test". And the "real" stuff is buried under the tons of visual garbage. People don't use their gear to create but to "test"...unfortunately.
  9. ​Sure, it's manageable! And I'm pretty sure there will be tools how to "convert" your footage to newer formats/codecs. Bigger issue for me is "how to make it survive". Since OneDrive has unlimited storage I try to save all my footage to the cloud. We'll see.
  10. ​Exactly. In 20ys you probably won't be able to watch your nowadays footage. How can we know that future players will support todays codecs? And I'm talking about the case when you make your footage survive these long 20ys.
  11. Thanks for watching! Haha, I simply love those shakes ​Yes, it was a great trip!
  12. There's adapter for almost any mount for MFT. So, no worries about the mount.
