  1. One of their resellers here in Los Angeles whispered to me that their next release will probably be the Nova (in May) and the 600D is looking more like early fall (maybe late August/September). Dang. Not as excited about another panel light on the market. There seems to be enough of those out there. I wish the 600D was the first on the list. I really think that light will become the industry standard for low to mid-range productions. They’re gonna sell like crazy. Pair two of them together and you almost have an M18, which is crazy.
  2. You’d think Aputure would have still announced it online around the time of NAB. The Forza 500 is a great deal right now. If I don’t hear from Aputure by the next month I’ll probably just pull the trigger on a Forza. The 600d is a little more powerful, and honestly, I’d prefer the Aputure since I already have a 300d II and a 120d. But they’ve gone a quite silent about this fixture since last September.
  3. If it meant dropping the 6K resolution, I'd honestly prefer that the XT4 shoot 422 internally over 420. I love my XT3, but I really don't like the 420 color space, especially for grading. I have a Ninja V but I really dislike external recorders. Once you start throwing cages and external recorders onto cameras like these, I just don't see the point. If I'm going to do that, then I'd rather have a legitimate video camera then some awkward, Frankenstein rig with cables, adapters, clamps and mounts dangling off the body. So many failure points. So many things to jostle loose. It all just ends up
  4. Ugh. I don’t like the Sony color science AT ALL but I am glad they are ovetaking Canon. I hope in the next few years the suits on Canon’s board get the message when their sales really start going down the tubes compared to their competitors’ numbers. They’ve been able to survive merely on people that are locked into their ecosystem. But that will get you only so far. These specs suck. There is no way to sugarcoat them. They suck, suck, suck. Intentionally crippling products may turn a profit in the present, but it will bite you in the ass in the long run. Steve Jobs himself famously said, “If
  5. So which is which? The very top image seems to have much less noise, so there is either mor aggressive NR happening there or that sensor is actually cleaner.
  6. I think this camera looks great and the Touchscreen DPAF looks incredible. I can't wait to try shooting wide open with a gimbal. It opens up so many possibilities. I like running lean crews and the more independence there is for the camera operator, the better. And if I want 10bit 4:2:2, I'll just pick up a BlackMagic Video Assist. Everything I am asked to deliver is still in 1080 right now, so no big deal. Looking forward to trying out the Panasonic as well. Both look like fantastic cameras and I think both will do well. The gap between the $50k cinema cameras and the sub-$10k prosumer world
  7. Just saw this was already posted on another thread. Oh well. Here it is again...
  8. I am very excited about your up-coming review. When can we expect it? For a camera that's been out since February, there really aren't that many full blown reviews of it. There are plenty of photographer's reviews but there are barely any concerning the video aspects of the camera. Philip Bloom's review is okay, but it was kind of a quick once-over. I have a Canon 5D MK III and an original C300 that I have been waiting to ditch for a year now, but I have not seen the camera out there that I want just yet. I have shot with the Sony FS7 and considered switching over to it but I just couldn't h
