  1. They probably don't have it up yet, check it again a moment before the event starts. I'm sure there also will be a link to it at https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/
  2. Strange indeed. I don't really see a point to upgrade to this if you own the mk1, but then again if you are going to upgrade from an fs5 you're probably going to move up to an fs7 or something similar.
  3. Usually the streams are on BMs own Youtube channel if I remember correctly
  4. I don't mind the looks either and the grip looks pretty comfortable. Keep in mind that it could be that 4k 60p raw is external only and 4k raw up to 30p might still be internal. If there is no internal raw at all it would be weird considering all other BM cameras have it and are kind of known for it in a way.
  5. Funny how it took them 30 seconds to announce the ¨new¨ camera and go through the features. Kinda disappointing, although good that they are pushing for better colours. Why couldn't they just add the new colour science via a firmware upgrade to the old model or am I missing something else here?

    Unfortunately FS700 only does 4k through the SDI and this is probably hdmi only. Would be nice though if it had sdi too, a smaller 4k recorder is something I've been waiting for a while.

    Philip bloom just posted this. New BM 4k pocket cam https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10155176035490426&id=177852000425
  9. Their pre-order page says the LF pricing will be announced at BIRTV in august and shipping begins october. http://www.kinefinity.com/shop/mavo_preorder/?lang=en (it says lang=en but you'll need google translate for this one :D )
  10. http://www.kinefinity.com/mavo/ 2 new cameras announced by Kinefinity, Mavo 6k S35 and Mavo LF 6k Fullframe. Seems like they also announced a set of Cine lenses to go with it. Also some talk about a new user interface and an integrated Movcam wireless focus system. Mavo LF Base ISO 1600 and supposed to be cleaner than previous cameras. Cine DNG, ProRes and KineRAW 2.0?
  11. HDVideoshop sells them in Germany. https://hdvideoshop.com/en/ Not that many reviews out there, but Philip Bloom seems to have a Terra 4k and will probably make a review on it, atleast according to his social media.
  12. Of course there is no such requirement, but as I said "that is the reason why Netflix or anyone else could refuse to use it in a production." By that I mean this camera is not something a higher end production would use regardless of the specs.
  13. Yes, I'm familiar with their camera requirements, just joking around I do think that it's great to see Kinefinity getting more resellers in Europe, but the biggest problem is that they're not "established" enough for more serious productions just yet and that is the reason why Netflix or anyone else could refuse to use it in a production. Maybe that'll change when their cameras get more exposure though. From what I've seen they seem like cool cameras and pretty cheap for what you get, specs-wise anyways. Philip Bloom seems to be testing out the Terra 4k so maybe he's doing some in-depth look at it at some point.
  14. Also, if you happen to land a job to shoot something for netflix, there is a chance they have a budget for you to get a camera from a rental place if you ask nicely
  15. Those Fujinon zooms sound nice! Although it's kind of weird that they are only for e-mount. Is there some specific reason for this? I think there are a lot of people with ef mount cameras who are potential buyers for these lenses.
  16. Sigma announced some new art lenses are coming! Long awaited 24-70 2.8 is one of them. https://m.dpreview.com/news/1942581285/sigma-announces-14mm-f1-8-24-70mm-f2-8-and-135mm-f1-8-art-lenses
  17. I remember when I bought the nex7 and it was so frustrating to use because of the constant overheating, but I tolerated it at the time because there was not many other cameras capable of 1080p60 in the price range. That was like 4-5 years ago or something? We are still complaining about the same issues and to me it's just shocking that they haven't already changed the form factor or done some other modifications to get rid of this problem that shouldn't exist in the first place.
  18. I like a lot of footage that I have seen from 1dx mk2, but I kinda have to agree with some of the guys here and say this test video/stills doesn't look that good and imho doesn't quite support the point of the article itself. It looks very soft and color is almost weird at times.
  19. Kinda weird that there is no upgrade to the af
  20. Maybe better AF and the vari nd from fs5? Internal prores would be nice Don't know what else they can put in there without stepping on f5/55 too much??
  21. Looks pretty good but why is it that Canon can't do internal raw with this thing? Or they just don't want to? Seems very strange to me since everything else seems pretty well thought out on this one...
  22. That is great news for F5/55 owners although it is kind of a bummer that you need the pricey and kinda bulky recorder to get that. While the size doesn't matter in normal production environments, it's always a plus if you can strip a camera down for special applications without losing features like this. Anyway, it's good to see that Sony is getting in on the compressed raw formats so that they will be able to put it into their future cameras, hopefully to mid range/prosumer cams aswell.
  23. Ebrahim, you keep talking about how sad and depressed you are because you have lost your credibility in this community. Why are you not doing anything to gain it back? You are just making yourself look worse and worse everytime you write here because you're not answering anyones questions. At least not the important ones. If everything you say is true, just provide the evidence that people here want to see and no one would have to be bothered with this anymore.
  24. I've been using Sennheiser ew100 for quite a few years now and it has worked great so far. This is the combo that also has a transmitter for a handheld mic which is also useful in some situations although I haven't used it that much. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/618735-REG/Sennheiser_EW_100_ENG_G3_A_Evolution_G3_100_Series.html RodeLink seems also like a good option. It's cheaper but can't say much else about it since I haven't used it myself http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1115091-REG/rode_rodlnk_fm_rodelink_wireless_filmmaker_kit.html
  25. I agree with Bio. You should definitely learn the basics of color correcting and grading first and play with footage until you get the hang of it. It's a very valuable skill to have when you don't have the budget for a colorist. As far as plugins go, there are of course lots of opinions on this matter, but I prefer Filmconvert over MagicBullet and such. It is very easy to use on it's own and you can get great looking images when you learn how to use it in combination with all the standard tools you have in FCP.
