  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?
  16. I can't believe that they offer us what we wanted. I am sure after a couple of jobs you will be reaching for the Canon a lot more than the Sony. Go get some cheap nano lenses (18-135mm), I am sure they will be amazing for AF and ultra silent, and good all around (never liked the Sigma, sorry, too short, not too wide).
  17. I tried to use Resolve full time last year and I couldn't for various reasons. Now I work almost 98% at the pre and production phases, so I do not pay Premier but I will need to edit at early 2021, so I hope this new Resolve will be the one.. I got a full copy with my P4K.
  18. Ι am editing H265 since 2015 and with no exotic solutions, no way you still can't handle H265..

  20. Yes, use EF glass for now, and buy 1-2 "cheap" primes RF to play natively. Even the 18-135 nano is great for a workhorse all around C70 lens (I got one just to use with c100/C200 cameras I was renting), do not bother with the 24-105, I always had it with me, I rarely use it, it is not very convinient on a S35 video sensor. Even a 16-50(55)mm will be very convinient with the few extra mm on the wide end, this is where the 18-135mm dissapoints and kept my NX system with the amazing 16-50mm 2-2.8f relevant until this day (of course that lens was almost double the price), but there are cheap (or very expensive!) Solutions to go ultra wide on a S35 C camera, even the dead cheap 11-22 EF-S or just an ultra wide prime. The other EF lens I LOVE is the the 70-200 4f, small and light, definitely as good as the big and heavy White, but the 70-300 (nano? i think) is a best buy also and you have covered everything tele. So, 1 expensive EF (can buy used) and a couple of EF-S and you are set. Then can have something in between with a cheap-ish prime RF for playing natively from time to time (35mm IS macro? The new cheap 50mm? You choose!). After so many years, it is the first time I wholeheartedly suggest Canon! That is incredible!
  21. Canon C70 and see if the R6 is enough for now.
  22. I expressed my feelings about the C70 on the other post, BUT my main jobs in the industry are different (sound, assistant director), so I have 4 mirrorless and the P4K for the moment for my personal video company, I am not willing to spend too much on a better camera, so I will be waiting a little bit more for other (e.g cheaper!) options in the market. I am willing to go up to 3500euros, so no C70 for me. For my position, a videocentric m43 camera will be enough, maybe, and the R6 is too expensive for my hybrid needs (a couple of photography sessions, or 3, per year), and the R6 somehow limited, to go full in RF. No need for full frame for me. I am playing the waiting game for now! I am expecting a "huge" Fuji and Panasonic release in the 2021. Ofcourse, if image was my main trade, I would have already pre-ordered the C70, and probably sell everything to go Canon. The C70 is such a significant release for me.
  23. Obviously was a joke! 🙂 and a dissapointment 😞
  24. They just released the BGH1, isn't that enough?!
  25. I am sure the next GH will be even better. Cold Cold!!
