  1. IKR? At first I thought my monitor frequency had been changed or that the camera must have 1950s level stabilisation. But no - it was just really badly (in the context of stabilisation) shot. A shame.

  3. By far your best bet here would be to keep an eye out on eBay for used GoPros. I recently picked up a Hero 3 for £50 and I've seen various 4s under £100. It might take a little while, but something good will appear in the end and will be much better than any brand new sub-100 model.
  4. You spelled 'to be given lifetime sinecures in the House of Lords' incorrectly.
  5. Well I LOLled at it, which is rare - but each to their own where humour is concerned.
  6. I thought it caught a particularly Hollywood-style boosterism and ignorance rather well.
  7. They very much wouldn't like you to keep using them. They'd like you to get out there and replace them with new stuff, preferably on a monthly basis!
  8. You can get a Neewer knock-off battery grip for a shade over GBP30, which solves the battery issue somewhat: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B073XLBKKG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  9. I've got one of these. I bought it 'spares'n'repairs' and found that the only reason it wasn't working was that the power winder contacts had corroded. A spot of tinfoil sorted that, but I also picked up a new standard battery grip. Total cost (for what was Canon's flagship)? £100.
  10. Much to my wife's chagrin, the point I make when I compare my expenditure to that of friends who are into boats, motorbikes, vintage cars etc etc is unarguable. If one buys one's equipment in a thoughtful way, favours secondhand and doesn't always chase the very latest thing, cinematography/film-making is by no means an extravagant pastime. Another mate of mine is into breeding rare prawns - I kid you not - where a breeding pair, or whatever they call them, of some species fetch over £500 a pop. When he adds up that ongoing cost (prawns, like humans, are not, sadly, immortal) to his other
  11. Whilst you're correct in the main with your advice, I don't really think it's up to you to dictate who should or shouldn't buy a particular camera. Plenty of people might want an item like this for artistic or hobby purposes, without necessarily being a 'rich playboy'. I have a FS5, an A7R2 and heaps of lighting, sound and grip stuff because I'm a crazed enthusiast and would-be artist, no playboys here. My mate does up old cars as a hobby and he probably spends three or four times my camera-related costs each year and, guess what, he's not a rich playboy either.
  12. That sequence was graded slog3. He mentioned that later in the video.
  13. Having had and used both the Mki and Mkii C100, the latter is definitely a huge improvement in terms of usage. The DPAF is excellent and the EVF is actually usable! The only unfortunate hangover from the Mki is the codec. If you're planning to mainly use SOOC footage with minimal grading then yes, for the use case you've described it's almost a no-brainer. However, if you plan to grade to any extent you'll find the low bitrate 8bit files frustratingly thin.
