  1. Geoff Boyle is such a man of wisdom. I have seen one of his talks. Just brilliant. ?
  2. Hey Guys, Quick question, I have a Zacuto EVF for my Canon 1dc works beautifully but when I want to mirror from the camera it crops down is this normal. I just wanted to see my F STOP etc on the camera/overlays without out cropping. Can it be done? Thanks
  3. No the C500 Can't do 4k 60p in Pro Res Raw. Atomos cleared this up. It has to record across two drives for 60p 4k.
  4. love to chat through your setup, exactly what I need but can't find it here in the UK
  5. nice dude, I heard there may be a mirrorless Full Frame from canon on its way in September so hold on to your pennies. Nice is the padded weight and the handles from Letus? I can't get them here in the UK Sadly. What I want built so well. Connect with me on Instagram buddy @ollywood88 and @fix8films on there
  6. True.. the 4k cinema lite is perfect but that is it the internal codecs 1080p and 2k are weak.. 2K on the c500 is amazing.. You can get a c500 for under 5k. I am in the UK I spent the 7q with licenses for RAW to pro res, drives and the camera for just shy of 5k. Media cost on the Raw Lite on the c200 is a lot more.. It is a great camera but only for the raw lite internal 8 bit isn't great.
  7. Spot on mate, Spoke to atomos it can only do 4k 30p in pro res raw, I think its due to having the processing power. The 4k 60 can only be done across two drives on the 7q, There may be an option on the 7Q I doubt Atomos will support it. Great stills buddy, Get a c500 i my opinion yes it lacks the Dynamic range of the C300MKII no Clog 2 or 3 or autofocus, but.... It has 12 bit 60fps 4444 the c300 mark 2 can only do this in 10 bit over 30fps it can do 12bit 4444 only up to 30fps. The 12 bit 4444 is beautiful in 60fps. It has 4k 60p raw AND HALF RAW.. The fan noise is a pain but run and gun stuff your ok. 1080p is ok internal no frame rates tho that are any good. I nearly brought a c300mkii but saw it more of a side grade not upgrade. Nice Rig man, Is that shanks Letus Man cam... I would love that for my 1DC... Do you own it? Was the c500 heavy on it? Thanks
  8. Thank you for your kind words. The C500 is special just like the 1dc, The C300 MKII has the lovely clog 2 and 3 that is it, its more of a side grade than an upgrade. The fan noise can be fixed.. All depends on how long you are shooting for. I think cost wise it beats a lot of cameras hands down, Just let down by the Dynamic Range.autofocus but hey it was released in 2012 wasn't it. Pair it with the 7Q it is amazing. The atoms does not support 2k. What is frustrating is that in the menu it has 2k 120fps nobody has even gave it a thought.
  9. I use the c500 for all my work 2k 60 12bit the C300 mkii does not have this. It is an amazing camera. I think you can get DPAF on this it’s not been done however it is the same sensor as the C300 mk1 and that has DPAF. Re: Pro Res Raw, in the menus it does have 4k 60 raw and 4k 120fps half raw email Atomos and shout about it they should consider it. Here is some of the Work shot with the c500, a documentary I am working as a DP on
  10. Guys, Love this @dunjoye I shot this with The Canon C500 IN 1080p and the Canon 1DC. It is such a special camera. I was also looking at selling for the 4k 60p auto focus of the Canon 1DX 2. If the 1DX 2 just had that lovely super 35mm mode I would be gone. Still love my 1DC.
  11. Thanks for all your advice guys next question what are your archiving and post work flow I.E Import into a drobo or similar and make copies across multiple drives, Looking at an archiving solution, I haven't heard great things about the DROBO heard a lot about failures Thanks
  12. Thanks are they 7200rpm drives now? Or still the 5400rpm?
  13. Hi Guys I currently use GRAIDS for my editing. 4TB. does anyone use the Lacie external drives? Are they any good? They seem cheaper in price than a GTECh. I have always used GTECH. thoughts Thanks
  14. B Cam to match Canon's profiles 1dx Mark 2 (Pricey) Canon 5d4 or 5d 3. The Sony a7 series will be hard to match colour profiles, unless you do quite a lot of tests.
  15. Its not too bad, it is just a little soft. great for dream like sequences but intercut with the 4k will look soft. Yeah any other dslr, I use the c500 as our A Cam for the 2k 60fps.
