  1. Blackmagic is not a huge company. Not even close. Panasonic has 273,358 employees. Canon has 197,673 employees. Sony has 117,300 employees. Fujifilm has 79,000 employees. Nikon has 25,729 employees. Blackmagic has 372 employees.
  2. Personally, I would rather see less resolution and more of the updated processing power that is obviously being implemented given to the elimination of rolling shutter issues. It is the single biggest dead giveaway that one is shooting with DSLR's.
  3. Actually his conclusion about the Pocket having better highlight retention than the XT-3 seems a bit skewed. He base's this on having more tools in Resolve, because it's raw. But in fact when you look at the files, the Xt-3 has far more chroma info. Once again, grading in the eyes of someone who doesn't appear to know that much about grading seems to be all based on what button you can click on or what LUT you can apply. Which is just silly as far as I am concerned. If you just look at the files on the scopes you can see that the BMPC4K is clipped more harshly and that it is missing chrom
  4. Hi, On the lookout for a timecode slate, preferably backlit. Please be aware I am located in Paris, France (EU) so this needs to be taken into account in terms of shipping. Paypal a must, unless of course you are in Paris too. I am looking for a TS-3(EL), TS-C, TS-TCB or a Betso WTCS-1 for instance (all of which are backlit models) but open to others if I have missed one as well... PM me at: yoclayton@live.com Cheers Clayton PS: If coming from outside the EU, the seller needs to be prepared to declare a low nominal value because import duties are a killer here.
  5. Talk is cheap. Red is not. And has never been. Remember 3k for $3K? This is not about inexpensive, high quality prosumer cameras for everyone. Nor is it about Foxconn getting into the camera game. What this is really about is RED getting into the expensive (read 8K video) telephone business. All the rest is hype and BS.
  6. They won't say anything yet because the C200 hasn't even reached their premises. The majority of rental houses would not say the C200 is an A-Cam by the way. No way. That's like saying people are currently renting the C100 as an A-Cam. For that it would need at least a broadcast quality codec and for the moment that is not the case. This is not an accident. The vast majority of rentals are for cameras that people cannot afford themselves. The average price point for a camera rental package is 10-30K. Otherwise people just buy the cams. The C300's go out all the time. They are
  7. What seems clear to me is that they also want C100 users to make the stretch upwards and they don't want to destroy the C300 market, which is broadcast, by bringing the broadcast level codec on board too soon. Who wants to bet against me that the C300 III comes out before this codec ? I think the C100 series might also be toast in fact. But that remains to be seen. The RAW lite adds extended dynamic range and touches the indie market and the dual pixel AF is attractive to a lot of other folks in the industry. I think it will smoke the new Panasonic for this reason. For me it is very
  8. So then in fact it is probably more a B-Cam to the C700. Which makes sense to me. Which also says the next generation C300 will have it too.
  9. The whole premise of this article is that the price point of the cam is as an A-Cam is false. The C200 is a B-Cam. Not the other way around. Despite the fact that the price point of the camera may be expensive for some people here does not make it an A-Cam. Canon have a C300 and 700 series out there that shoot 4K. The C100 does not. The C200 does for half the cost. That spells B-Cam. Making the assumption that they should now come up with a B-Cam for their B-Cam strikes me as a bit silly.
  10. The camera that just keeps on giving. Thanks to the ML team which just keeps on giving. Not particularly pretty ? That stills look terrific Mercer. I have always loved the 14 bit image coming from the 5D3. As someone who does a lot of grading (even professionally) I have always found the 5D3 offered very true color right out of the box. If the exposure is on, I often don't even need to correct it. Which brings me back to a discussion with a very well known DP recently. He said he would rather have great color depth at FullHD on a camera than higher dynamic range or reso
  11. Actually Andrew, I don't view you any more of a shill than them. Which is my point. I think everyone is just trying to create something in their own way. And I really respect that. As you know it takes a lot of effort to keep any project up and running. Hat's off to everyone who does it ! I was not upset about the cinema5D forum being let go of either (thank you for the compliment for my moderation by the way, I really tried to keep it a place where there was respect for everyone). To be honest, I think the forum was declining considerably because everyone was moving on from the 5D and t
  12. That is precisely my point. Instead of slagging off Cinema5D, why not give everyone a pass ? As I said we are all doing the best we can. That is certainly a more positive outlook than calling people snobs who only spend their time at trade shows. My experience of Sebastien and the rest is that they are nice, sincere people getting along and trying to build something like the rest of us.
  13. Well, that was a pretty nasty little article. Why bother ? The guys over at Cinema5D are trying hard just like everyone else. Andrew, you talk about them basically as if they were corporate shills, but on the other hand I remember very clearly you promoted the Zacuto eye, saying what a great small EVF for small DSLR cameras and when I pointed out repeatedly that it had no HDMI input (only SDI so really not adapted at all to those cameras) in your forum, not once ever did you respond. The point is that your criticism can be extremely harsh, yet I don't see you holding yoursel
  14. Frankly, I still don't understand why this posting of Andrew's has not been amended. He is quick to attack manufacturer's for their sloppiness, but man this is a glaring error. The crux of his original post clearly presents this viewfinder as working with DSLR's which only have HDMI out, yet it is an SDI only EVF. The only way to deal with this is some kind of conversion box, which defeats the whole purpose of a smaller EVF.
