  1. They're actually pretty great for what they are, or at least I've enjoyed them.
  2. yeah, hard not to be bulky when slapping a 600mm f/4 on the front. the fs700 and recorder combo is big, but it's definitely manageable when you have proper camera support. No doubt the fs5 has the advantage there. Still, for 4k slowmo, the fs700 is still pretty bad ass when recording externally. More than enough camera for what I'm doing. Also, to go the other way, here's the fs700 with the Pentax 110 24mm 2.8 lens on it, just for shits and giggles
  3. This time last year I couldn't resist anymore when I saw an fs700u pop up for very cheap. I snagged it and have slowly been acquiring the kit pieces that it was missing as it came without accessories. Need to send it into Sony to have is R upgraded and I'm keeping an eye on Shogun Infernos, especially now that the new shogun has come out as well.
  4. I'm glad this new smaller one exists if only to drive down the cost of the other Rodelink system. I just snagged an open box one for $210 on ebay.
  5. Some copies of the Canon FD 35-105 are parfocal.

    The 110 lenses are great. I have the 18, 24, 50, and 70 and they're all worth getting if you can. The 70mm is a little pricey compared to the rest, but still can be had for less than the cost of the RJ adapter. I bought the RJ adapter and it's nice, but mine is currently broken. If you look at the picture of the rear of the adapter, you'll see 2 silver screws. Those screws are the only thing holding the front/mount part of the adapter onto the base and those two screws fell out on mine. I have not been able to replace them as of yet, but I had a aperture less 110 adapter and have just been using that.
  7. I'd be interested to see the location of the voters as well, is this show available/broadcast outside of the US?
  8. It's crazy but awesome how much stuff can affect the image on this camera. I always thought the OLED Color only tied to the LCD screen as well. Thanks for putting the work in on this one, I'll have to check it out. I don't have a fuji, but being able to match Eterna is pretty awesome

    The best lens! Enjoy
  10. I have been using the Gini Monitor Arm for a few years, and it's OK. Not great, but not expensive either. I usually use it with a smallHD dp4 or dp6 monitors with Sony NPF batteries on them. The arm is fine for the dp4, but gets a little unwieldy with the dp6. I got mine with a bunch of other rig components, but it costs about $40 on it's own. I like it, I wish it were beefier and longer, but not long like I've seen other magic arms. If you guys find some good ones, please post here. I'm definitely interested in picking up another one going forward.
  11. Yeah, black panther hate got pretty ugly pretty fast. Really no need for that. In other news, the oscars backtracked and will now air the awards live.
  12. I still have and love my original pocket. It's taken so long to kit it out with all the accessories and find out what set ups work best for me, but man is it awesome when you do. I have and use the Hoya IR Cut filter and that has been absolutely awesome. It seemed to be the consensus pick on BMCuser and it's been great to me. The first thing to do with the camera is figuring out a battery solution. I have the smallrig Sony NP-f Battery adapter that has been great for me because I use so many of those batteries, but figuring out which battery solution works best for you is an important place to start when dealing with the pocket camera
  13. I think Black Panther is fine, I don't love it, but I didn't hate it as much as you seem to. I said it deserves the nomination, not the win. I'd take Blade 1 or 2 over BP or pretty much any super hero movie any day, but if you can't see the historical difference between Meteor Man and Black Panther you're really not looking hard enough. Why not throw in Blankman?
