  1. For the benefit of others who might be considering these lenses with a BM Micro Cinema Camera the following all work with Iris control when connected to the EF to BMPCC Speedbooster - Canon EF 17-40mm, Canon EF 50mm Macro, Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8 Non IS version and the Canon EF 500mm f4.5 (pre f4 IS version) which is a superb wildlife filming lens and very portable with the micro.
  2. Whats the likelihood they could make one firmware version to cover the entire 350g to 1800g range?

    Have another go and best of luck this time!
  4. Thanks for the heads up! So with firmware version 1.50 5D RC2 the Cranes payload shifts to between 1200g and 1800g. Why they didn't just allow the original lower threshold of 350g seems odd but perhaps, as the firmware name suggests, this firmware version is geared towards 5D body style users?? You could be pushing it there. I notice on the Zhiyun page for the Cranes parameters ( http://www.zhiyun-tech.com/index.php?m=content&c=index&a=show&catid=132&id=177 ) it mentions 70mm for the max. payload lens. It is not very clear but that could refer to the max.physical length of a lens.

    OK just checked the members list and I can confirm you are not listed. It can take 3 or 4 weeks...have you been waiting longer?
  6. Possibly a trump filter? Probably should make it variable too as some of those TV show make up artists just suck! (come to think of it a trump filter sounds like its for something else!)
  7. Ive come across an issue, the ProResHQ files don't playback in Quicktime when they come straight out the camera (tried 2 different sandisk extreme pro 64gb sdxc cards in the camera). I have to convert them to another ProResHQ file in a convertor. Is my camera creating bad files?

    OK just to inform others who might be wondering the same now or in the future, activation takes quite a while with that forum so be patient (reminder to myself).

    Does anyone know how long it takes to get an account activated at bmcuser.com? Only its been over 2 weeks now and I am still not activated, emails to admin are not being answered.
  10. Sure, I can see you can use an evf and monitor both but for the conditions and purpose I have specified I think my money is going on a decent evf, particularly when out in the field.
  11. Like asking "do you eat salad?"...not really, given I mentioned earlier about focussing in bright conditions, some might use a bright display quite happily whereas others (prob most) stick with an evf. Different people like to operate with different setups depending on their needs. Enjoy that salad! Appreciate your info on how you shoot. Thanks.
  12. Thanks for that tupp. Do you use a monitor ?
