  1. Given the recent article by @Andrew Reid I just spotted this vid and thought it may be of interest here:
  2. Well they got me this time. Just pulled the trigger on the Mixpre-6 II ?
  3. Appreciate that they've been good with firmware updates but the F4 still has the inexplicable consumer-level line output from the XLR outputs and that (to me) pretty crappy screen. Aside from those things I think it's really good.
  4. Yeah it is. I was waiting for an F4n since I'd figured that if they'd made the same improvements to the F4 as they'd done with F8 -> F8n that would likely be good for me. As for this F6: personally I'd rather they hadn't taken the backwards step of dispensing with the XLR outputs and the dual SD slots as 4 XLR inputs were ok for me. That said, this 32-bit float "raw" style of sound recording is potentially a game changer.
  5. First vid on the forthcoming F6 from the ever-reliable Curtis Judd:
  6. Not camera-related but I'm predicting (hoping) that Zoom unveil either an F4n or perhaps another model in-between the F4 & F8n....
  7. They do but perhaps not for Canon EF, so you may be 1/2 right.
  8. Hi - did they state whether this will be a 'dumb' or electronic mount? I ask because I have a bunch of C/Y mount Zeiss lenses, most of which have been adapted to Canon EF mount but aren't electronic but I've found that most of the lens mount adapters are electronic which is a feature for which I'd be paying but not deriving any benefit (unless I used normal Canon EF glass of course).
  9. Good stuff and lovely pics @Andrew Reid - I think there may be a typo on the second line though. Where you say "Until now my two favourite lenses for 4K video" did you mean cameras? Looking forward to seeing some video footage from the Z7.
  10. Well I suppose the argument against the type of camera I have proposed would be that it would potentially cannibalise sales of the URSA Mini but I'd argue that it wouldn't because it would be for people that wouldn't/couldn't justify/afford an URSA Mini Pro to begin with. Steve Jobs once said something like "If you don't cannibalise yourself, someone else will" but that seems to be the mindset with many of these companies now.
  11. This really is a lamentable move by Vimeo. I've had a Plus account for a few years but this story reminded me to switch off the auto-renew.
  12. Firstly: apologies if this has been discussed here before (if so I've never read anything) but a thought just occurred to me.... At the moment Blackmagic has the Pocket Cinema Camera 4k at £1055 +VAT and the URSA Mini Pro at £4845+VAT with nothing in-between. What are the odds of them coming up with something in-between i.e. something a bit bigger than the Pocket with an APS-C/Super35 sensor but about £2500-£3000? Surely there are loads of people that want something a bit more than the pocket (ie a bigger sensor) and able to spend more but unable/unwilling to go for the URSA Mini: it would be a winner, no?
  13. ....Which is why I'd not consider a camera until it's had a thorough examination by you, Andrew. All these vids on YouTube are all well and good but too many of them are beholden to the manufacturers.
  14. Shame it can't do 4:2:2 internally (as per the GH5/GH5s) but that aside, this looks an intriguing option. Hopefully we'll see the usual no-holds-barred, super-thorough Reid Review asap ?
  15. I'd never heard of this bloke until this recent controversy and have no intention of looking at any of his content, neither.

    Standing Tall

    Here's a short film I completed in May 2016: it's about a building that has managed to survive decades of (over) development in central Cardiff:
  17. Here's a 2 minute little 'vignette' done about 4 years ago (shot on a GH2) and here's something done way back in 2009, a faux film trailer:
  18. Don't you mean "Egypt" what with you being a Pharoah n' all....
  19. It'll be really interesting to see how these go as they're an intriguing prospect. I like the fact that you can change the lens mount and would be interested to see how robust/reliable that aspect of it is, too.
  20. I seem to remember a lot of chat about these Kinefinity cameras: many interested alas many people a little hesitant to go for what seems such an unknown quantity (compared with all the usual suspects of manufacturers) so I salute you for taking the plunge
  21. I think it's the things that are happening behind the scenes that you should be worried about....
  22. The British vote to leave the European Union aka 'Brexit'. Or 'CollossalFuckUp' as I call it.
  23. ...and could potentially do me a small filming favour?
