  1. I had the same.. found on the BM forum that you have to manually go into the audio properties on your PC control panel and put it to 48000 Hz (in my case) ... this worked for me.. cheers Gareth
  2. Yes I'd second the Juiced Link RM222 or RM333 boxes.. very good quality audio. It gives, to my ear,every bit as good a quality direct to the camera as a H4n for example. Saves having to sync up in post. Cheers Gareth
  3. Yes many are jumping ship to the Sony's (FS5/7) ... Which if and when I need a new camera I will look at. It's a shame Canon has this continual policy of restricting their cameras in the belief they are protecting the higher end models. Sony's policy proves that this is a fallacy. The FS5 is indeed a very well spec'd little camera... However I shall stick with the C100 for the moment. I've rigged it so it has all the functionality I need... and remains as compact as the FS5. (I hate these massive franken'rigs). I don't need 4K ... not sure I when I will. Slow-mo would be nice, but is not a d
  4. Hi there Thanks for a very interesting post. A nice side by side of the three cameras. However, I’m not totally in agreement with your summary of the models. The reasons I still use the C100 are numerous and for shooters like myself, posting to the web, it is still a relevant camera. You have based your assessment purely on image, (which is fair enough) and from that test I actually think they look pretty well matched. But there are other factors to take into consideration. The C300, your winner, (as it would be mine), is 4.8 times the price of my C100 new (6x more than I paid fo
  5. I read this morning that there are indeed rumours of a relaunch of Kodachrome... Not that I ever used it much. As news photog I shot mostly B&W before the wire service went to colour neg, then digital.. But it certainly was a beautiful film stock.
  6. If I remember correctly the peaking, assuming your using Magic Lantern... works fine on the 60d, as you get a 1080 resolution before you hit record. It then drops down to a lower resolution during recording, the monitor will probably reboot or go black for a few seconds once you start to record and the quality drop off. Some have the "5D" mode which works ok. The Zacuto was about the best as it stayed pretty sharp even at the lower res, and went black only for a fraction of a second when you hit record. Pulling focus is still possible. I must admit once I got a 5D3, the 60d was only use
