  1. Well, It looks like to go anamorphic that with buying the lens and upgrading my computer, will be into it $2k or more. For me that does it for fun and am retired is big money, so helpful to know if I can shoot indoors and use existing lenses.
  2. Breaking down the questions, how fiddley is it to use the slr magic anamorphot lens with an mft or canon rebel? Is there an slr magic lens that doesn't need the rangefinder? Then how do you compensate for shooting close indoors not just the anamorphot lens needing longer lens, but also add crop factor. How do you shoot 3-4' away?
  3. I have purchased the guide, but am better informed, but clueless of what to do? My current cameras are aps-c sensor size. I do narrative film mostly. Looking to purchase a SLR Magic Anamorphot lens for anamorphic video. I use Sony Vegas 13 NLE which can desqueeze anamorphic video. Am thinking about getting a 4k camera so that when in 16:9 mode or 4:3 mode the loss of pixels will not be noticed when rendering to 1080p or 720p. I mostly shoot indoor with nikkor vintage prime lenses. The spaces are small, so shoot mostly with wide angle lenses. My concern is that with crop factor and ha
  4. I am screwed, Andrew posted that you can upload the files via usb with the Canon software, which I do not have, since my cd got corrupted and virtually impossible to get from Canon again, have tried several times.
  5. I just bought the color profiles, but no where are their any instructions for applying them? I assumed there would be written settings that I input into my cameras Canon t3i and EOS-m but instead got a bunch of files. Nothing in my camera manual tells me how to upload them to the camera or is this something done in my NLE? anyway, before I request a refund, maybe you can give me some instruction on how to use these in my camera and upload it to them? Also would be helpful once they are available in camera to take advantage of them and use them to full potential as in setting camera to expose
  6. I see my previous post on this discussion has been deleted, so will list the hight points. No one up to this point has mentioned this, but this camera only works with Mac Computers. Apple computers represent 4% of the world's users and less than 1% of world software use. So making a camera that 94% of the world cannot use (Windows software has aprox 94% world usage to Apple's 4%). That fact alone I am sure is responsible for its lack of acceptance in the market place. Its limited range of light to shoot in, lack of slow motion, having to use c mount lenses and high price all contributed to it
  7. I am going to snooze thru this announcement, recently the big news was Canon released a camera that cannot even match the quality and features of theT2i after almost ten years of canon "development" at the same price. I use 3 Canon cameras now, they are great due to Magic Lantern however I cannot imagine buying more canon lenses or camera bodies, they are not competitive in my mind. I think any announcement from Canon will be that digital filmmakers will have to pay a mega thousands of dollars for their camcorders and that their dslr and mirrorless cameras are for photos only. For those of us
  8. I think what ever their surprise is? It will help put me to sleep at night. Likely the big surprise is a new name for the same camera. It will be expensive and for video compared to the competition useless, like all the camera introductions for the last 3 years.
  9. Well at this price range, I would expect internal stabilization, great slow motion and great low light. If it were a thousand dollars less I would be interested, but at this price I expect more in features such I already mentioned. It would be nice to have 4k too for editing, but I will pass on this one. I also expect video related features that relate to focus, exposure, historgram etc.
  10. Batteries are not a problem today, I will give you that, but how about a year from now? I guess if you buy a new camera every year, but for me is about every 5 yrs. I suspect strongly that the NX1 will not have batteries, spare parts and will not be supported. It doesn't share parts with other cameras and so I see it as a disposable camera, but YES BATTERIES ARE A PROBLEM and a huge problem and spare parts and service and.....
  11. Well, first they use a codec that can't be edited in my NLE and then they shut down the camera line so that anyone that needs a battery is out of luck. Everyone needs batteries. Now, what is the chance that in the future that I will ever buy a samsung camera no matter how advanced and snazzy? No matter what a great deal or great camera, I will make another choice for future purchases, I am so glad now that I didn't buy the NX1. I was seriously considering it once I find a way to edit the footage. Can you imagine starring down at your shiny new camera and not being able to use it once you need
  12. What about ergonomics, not just the feel of a camera in the hands, but logical places for buttons? Since so much is software in the camera, why can't I just pull up a video screen and have all the information and access to setting in one place? I want really good slow motion in 1080p Why don't the big mfg do research into these things and if they do, it seems like a no brainer to have this available years ago. 4k has lots of downsides and 8k is just double trouble, how about making better sensors than just bigger sensors? I have to believe that to talk to filmmakers, Mfg can make cameras th
  13. I would be getting the 2x for the same reason, sorry I didn't make that clear.
  14. I am hoping to switch to Sony RX100IV with the above mentioned SLR Magic products. My big question is will this combination work? I haven't been able to find out if the Sony has an anamorphic mode in camera or if my NLE Sony Vegas Pro can do anamorphic conversion. However, if it can work, think it would be awesome. As you can tell I have NO EXPERIENCE with anamorphic and to spend $2k for the lens adapter and rangefinder an expensive experiment if it doesn't work?
  15. I see people reference internal stabilization, but on the sony website and in reviews, see no mention of internal stabilization for this camera and this is a big issue for me. What internal stabilization does this have if any? The other interest for me is if the SLR Magic add on anamorphic lens will work well with this camera? You would think if the camera body has internal stabilization they would shout it from the roof tops. I am very interested in this camera, but the biggest drawback is how fiddly it is in use? If the menus are not organized well or it may be a case of getting used to fin
