  1. I am just editing right now a paid job that will pay some bills with those NX cameras. Until Nikon has a better mirrorless, no, "I am not giving it a rest". All the rest of your philology isn't relevant to anything really, because I have those for some years and I am still doing my job and hobby, while for all the Nikon's 100 years, there isn't one camera that I can do the same. Deny a reality doesn't make it a non-reality, it makes you live in denial. Lack of video capabilities do not help being competitive in 2017 where billion of minutes are been uploaded every day. In the near fu
  2. @nooneI have some incredible super 8 cameras, the latest super 8 ever made (Minolta), a do-it-all Bauer with Schneider lens, a Canon 814, a Yashica (the simplest, and one of my most favorite ones, shot some nice Kodachrome with this one). I believe I have a Vienette somewhere too, but never used that one. I recently tested the Bauer and the Minolta and are working, I still have some film. I am thinking of shooting and developing that, but it is kind of expensive to do just for fun, but there are options in Europe.
  3. D500 was way overpriced for what it was (1) a B camera to the big Nikons, or 2) A camera for bird-ers), I do not think that ,except Mercer and 1) and 2), anyone else was interested in this camera and the crop is unbelievable it isn't a slight x1.1 crop, it is a X2.25 crop and no DCI 4K on a 20mgpxls sensor (smallest in APS-C land). Samsung camera does full sensor read out since 2014 on a 28mgpxls sensor and it's (I think) slightly less cropped NX500 costed 600euros kit new back then. Fuji did the video leap in just one generation, I can't understand why Nikon do not go all in in video, th
  4. How Steven Spielberg and NX1 came into the same sentence, I do not know! I give you a clue though, in "ms peregrine's home for peculiar children", there is an NX1, and they comment of how amazing the camera is(!), also in Luke Cage Tv series in the police department! P.S I do not think that Steven knows anything about Samsung cameras!
  5. Oscars, a few of them at least, and a lot of money, to the millions, per project, that is success. You can start from Cannes and Sundance though, it is good to have a somehow "indie" or "alternative European" background. But money, lots of them, and Oscars, at least a few of them. Oh, and share instagram jokes with Justin Bieber and Lebron James. And money.
  6. http://cvp.com/index.php?t=category/video%20assist/video+recorders//blackmagic////////video%20assist/ they have a 50% off, if I didn't wait for the spring time for my buys I couldn't resist this.
  7. GH4 was groundbreaking back in the day, GH5 will be tomorrow, definitely a workhorse camera with no overheating problems, good ergonomics, amazing battery life (for a mirrorless), great and various workflow options. I was just waiting for a better APS-C back then (NX1), and I am sure a better S35 (or close to that) will appear soon enough. Ideally, even though I haven't own a Canon camera since the film days, I would like this time next year to own a C100markIII and a Canon M (just add a number) with good video capabilities as a B camera, carry around photo camera, etc. I am get
  8. Exactly what I want to do with the pistol grip! I want to bring the old super 8 flame back!
  9. I bought one and doesn't fit, I tried some others from various friends, and they seemed to be optimized for dSLRs. Can anyone inform me about any for one, or both cameras? I am trying to avoid the magnet solutions, as I see them fall easily when in action, but if you know any of those that work quite well, please. Thank you.
  10. Here in my country, her fanbase are teens (and pre-teens) and 20 something's, plus a mainstream messed up and mixed up percentage of people that listen from mainstream dance music to local pop bands to whatever is on the mainstream radio at the moment; those people I do not admire much. In her latest live performance here 60% were young girls with tiny jeans shorts, 20% that were at the VIP section (the mainstream crown I mentioned) which they paid double ticket to have a bar closer to them actually, and the other percentage the rest of the people. She has (had) some great singles though,
  11. This noise is too much for my taste. Couldn't be super 8 stock or 16?
  12. Buy a Rodelink Newsshooter, and you can put the microphone wirelessly wherever you want. You will achieve an infinitely better quality sound too. You can also connect a lavalier microphone on the transmitter.
  13. I am playing the waiting game, a C100markIII must be imminent, is the only non 4K C camera, even they replaced the XC10 with a newer model! The important thing is what features they will include to that camera (I just hope for some kind of 120/100 frames) and if the HDMI-out is 10 bit (probably not). ..and the dough.. Whoever has used a C100markII for more than a week, knows what we are talking about.
  14. @Phil A I just wish for a Ronin MX and Crane hybrid with the best from both worldsworlds and cheaper (slightly) than the Ronin M! I do not care yet for smartphone videography, APS-C is still unbeatable for me!
  15. @Riadnasla solid reel, +1 for the wierd, big, goats! I am been very critical with Sony for their mirrorless line, and the reason is this. I do not believe they ever delivered such beautiful 1080 fhd, especially when you compare with a newly top APS-C camera like the a6500(a6300), everyone I know shoot 4K with this camera, while deliver 1080p, maybe is it too much to ask? Even EX-1 is still -somehow- competitive with their smaller sensor. C100 is the most comfortable camera to use on a difficult all day shooting. I just hope for a great mark III, it can be a camera for the a
  16. A better than Crane, less than 1000$, and I am getting aboard!
  17. What about heat production and energy consumption? I try to build low energy/low heat/low noise machines and Intel Xeon cpus were my best friends the last decade or so (another reason I went fully PC). It is good to see AMD up their games, but it seems to me that they aren't great editing choices yet for 4K editing. I hope I am wrong, as eventually (maybe this year) I have to replace my good old Xeon 123v4(or something!), and every little helps to bring down the enormous costs of an editing machine.
  18. @Dogtown we did a tv series with thus setup a lot of years ago EX-3 with a Letus adapter! Was a nightmare to light but back then it was the best budgeted workflow for a small market. I still use the EX-1 for some plain events coverage, it has started shown its age, but still quite competutive for a cam corder
  19. @andrgl If I could edit on my smart phone I would definitely would -but I am comfortably happy with 2 monitors and a TV screen! but the -without knowing or judging this 6 years old- there are some film makers that can change people's life. Youtube views in my book are like friends on facebook, not important.
  20. @Arikhan It is very obvious that you do not follow my points very well, and I am not at all shy at this, and other forums, and I remember a few occasions that we had exchange views, so I am shocked that you are "accusing" me for something that I "accuse" others! Everybody in this hobby and/or business knows that digital(and physical!) bodies eventually die, lenses are the ones that still hold practical (and financial) value though time. I have many digital cameras that I do not use at all as they do not offer anything right now, numerous super 8 film cameras that I haven't use for years,
  21. I am wondering, what is more profitable to make an EF lens to NX camera adapter, or to make a NX lens to X camera adapter, where X can be Canon M/Sony/m43, whatever really. An NX to X adapter can create a whole new market for the many NX lenses on ebay and can keep our investment much stronger than the opposite. Next year, NX1 will be almosy obsolete, Canon and Fuji will be very close, or will surpass it, Sony A7markIII or A9 will surely will be the best Sonys ever, and they already sell quite well, Panasonic will have a cheaper version of GH5 before Christmas, etc while the uni
  22. For sports I would go 50fps and the rest quite a normal operation. Why don't you get a GH4 that does 96fps? Batteries usually suffer from cold, get some more than usual, and have a good (or two) power bank(s) to charge on location. I am not familiar with the Sony, but if you can borrow, or find it for cheap, just put it above your main camera and choose accordingly, or experiment while your brother (and/or other athletes) train. Maybe wiser is to get the Sony FDR-X3000 which has real stabilizer, 120/100fps on 1080p and 4K/25fps, you should have something from the sled.
  23. I would like to @yourname, but I couldn't understand what letters to choose! Would you care to share your equipment/settings/workflow? Good job!
  24. First of all, I wouldn't advice anyone to get that Zoom for video production. Second, Canon cameras have terrible audio systems (and pre-amplifiers), third the most common setup is the mic close to the sound source (with the Rode mic close the end) but you see because the Rode isn't especially hot (almost the opposite actually, vs par example the Sennheisser ME66) and the mediocre Zoom recorder a less adequate sound than I would expect for such a close and right mic positioning. Now, the One, the One is great, the big one (with the side mechanism) is very noisy. There is also the Win
