  1. There are too many m43 lenses around to let the format just die..I doubt Panasonic will make more money from their full frame mount, which until now semi-fails to make a stronghold in the market. Also, Olympus is not quite dead yet, there have been some recent releases on lenses (?) I believe and some plans for a camera release. When the tiny sensors are OK for most people in the world (phones/, I see that there is potential for the much bigger m43 one. A video workhorse GH-6 with less mass and weight for 1.999€ maybe is what most people need at the moment. I still see people using professionally their GH5 around. I can see a future for m43, a pro level camera every 5 years and a new cheap model every 2and a half (and keep just 3 product lines, very cheap - 599$ new, 999$ middle level, and 1599$ - 1.999$ pro level, depending the extras such e-ND, audio ports, e.t.c). It is a good platform and unlimited cheap lenses around.
  2. Good choice, enjoy! There are also some budget lights coming from Aputure and others, while a good head/tripod combo will last you almost half of your career, Flowtech is the innovation of the 21st century (for tripods) so you have the newest and coolest. Difficult to work with Ace and Benro and Manfrottos anymore. Have a good and productive year.
  3. Merry Christmas people, all the best to you and your families!
  4. I got the Flowtech and FSB last year. Do it! it's not even close for me.

    NX1, baby!

    Ι just can't justify leaving my NX kit to die. I have 2 NX1 and 1 NX500 and 1 NX3000 with multiple NX lenses, adapters, flash units (Metz/Samsung), extra batteries, chargers, almost everything. It is not the best overal anymore, but still is No1 for me in: A) ergonomics B) menu system and touch interface C) battery life (I still use the original batteries!) D) there are at least 3-4-5 ways to do things, even an Fn button on lenses, touch screen, top dials, small screen at top, excellent screen and viewfinder, amazing wheels, just everything E) never heats up! in the worst conditions, tested by me, in boats in the summer, in mid0-day weddings in tiny sun scorched islands, in 150min shows F) the 16-50 2-2.8f zoom is still a unique selling point, I never bothered with the Sigma 18-35mm because of this lens (for almost the whole range of the Sigma is just 0.2-0.4f difference, AND stabilized, and probably better focusing) I even shoot multicam setups. For every 8bit project, or photo session, I am just covered. and they are so beautiful to hold, if anyone has hold one, just knows what I mean.. I will move eventually, but until now nothing has moved me to the point of invest 10-15.000euros to make a similar setup. RF probably will be, I have EF glass too, but I am waiting to see how it will unfold. Even the tiny NX500 is the camera I have used the most in my life, my everyday cam, B or C cam in different professional setups, the one I use now that I work as an assistant director, always in my main NX1 bag as a backup (or B cam), just so small and beatufil and (Sony do you hear?!) 2 wheels!

    Fuji X-S10

    https://www.lenstip.com/571.11-Lens_review-Fujifilm_Fujinon_XF_16-80_mm_f_4_R_OIS_WR_Summary.html This one? I usually trust his reviews.
  7. The last few days I had some conversations with people in the trade (for various reasons) and everyone is talking about the C70, most of them wait to see how the 2021 will develop though, it is not high time for "investements", but there is a lot of real hype about this camera. I remember similar hype with the C100 cameras, A7sII and the GH5. Just sayin'.
  8. IF you need a traditional video camera then you may be looking at something else, for my perspective, C200 needed a lot more weird-tall building that was never very practical for me. Then you have the tripod shots, most of the shots I am using anyway, but if I have to save time from NOT adding the couple of things I needed on the C200, I am going to take it 100 times out of the 100! Also, I have a bigish monopod, that will fit the C70 quite nicely I believe. A lot less camera bag and weight to carry around. The "hybrid" body seems like a breakthrough, what I was expecting the Pocket4K/6K to be. Let's face it, the new generation are used to the mirrorless desing, something in between is the golden ratio for me. I can just use my original Ronin that I have for my mirrorless/dSLR (never used it, just bought it a year or so ago!) and do not need more expensive and bigger stabilizing systems. I was very pleased with the results I was getting holding the camera with my 2 arms when/if used a good I.S lens, I do not like IBIS much. Maybe it is just me. So for all these reasons, I would be very happy with this new Canon C camera. I am not sure what the C50 will be, maybe too cripled for my tasting, maybe 8 bit? the older sensor wasn't that amazing either.
  9. Never liked the original one - well documented in this forum and others! C70 seems like the way forward, I just hope every new release will lower the C70 price tag, until I can reach it. Lately I do more specific TV jobs (assistant director and whatnot), I do not need more cameras, but for a thousand less, I would definitely get the C70 just to look at it late at night when I come back from the episodic TV madness!
  10. Are you Montenegrin anonim? Is it a safe country for a road trip with small kids?! It must be a very beautiful country. What about your movie?
  11. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1433714-REG/canon_rf_35mm_f_1_8_is.html What about this one? Small, light, I.S, macro and 1.8f. That would be the one I would get, everything else in EF.
  12. so, you reccomend Εlgato Stream Deck (the XL?) and ShuttleXpress? I wanted the Shuttle before, but after using the wheel of my Kensington as a jog wheel, I left it behind in my priorities, do you think the Elgato's will be a better option for me? Do they work ok with Premiere and Resolve (I believe you work FinalCut, more?). Is it convinient to buy both brands, or an exaggeration? Thank you if you have the time to reply. https://www.thomann.de/gb/elgato_stream_deck_xl.htm https://www.thomann.de/gb/elgato_stream_deck.htm https://www.thomann.de/gb/contour_av_solutions_shuttlepro_hardwarecontroller.htm?sid=c398e6b5cc9843280c7a5b19ef455448 https://www.thomann.de/gb/contour_shuttlexpress_black.htm
  13. Kensington trackballs are amazing, the wheel can be used as a jog wheel. I am so psyched about them that I have 2 big ones and a smaller one to take with me when/if edit with my laptop. That and a good mechanical keyboard are enough for me. Get well soon!
  14. This Sony, is THE Sony A7 camera, best ever and with a wide margin, in my opinion. I am too invested in EF though, so maybe not an option for me.
  15. the video above is the reason I stopped doing weddings, just so boring and unimportant. I wouldn't judge a camera from one wedding video on youtube. Don't we have any official or raw material to watch?
