    This one is a cine version that looks to be in decent condition and with some haggling I'm hoping to get it for £200ish. Which is, what, $68 at the current exchange rates?

    Whereas I've been hunting for a cheap copy of their 135mm and think I might have found one. There will be a scant amount of resisting going on.
  3. Yep, its down to what the OP wants to do with it and how often so I'm only throwing it up as the compromise as it seemed to me like the requirement was for an FS5 form factor and features with a more cinematic look (like we can ever define that on here ) and RAW hence the Odyssey. Which would be the Ursa Mini Pro but then, as you say, everything else gets bigger around it. The obvious answer is to buy both but I'm very liberal with other people's money.
  4. Just playing devil's advocate but maybe the compromise play is to get an Ursa Mini Pro to get a bit of both worlds ?

    Uncle Acker you mean? Yeah, he said its fine. As long as you get the PRS to agree as well https://www.prsformusic.com/licences/using-production-music/films-and-trailers
  6. If you are going to be doing a lot of this and just want something you can set up and leave then I'd have a look at the Samson G-Track Pro USB condenser microphone. Nowhere near as flexible as doing it using separate components but its far easier to deploy and actually performs very well. Not only does it keep within 3 figures price wise it actually only just creeps into 3 figures !

    Here's a fun fact that connects Stranger On The Shore and lens tests... Gene Cernan included the Acker Bilk version of it on a cassette tape that he took to listen to on a work trip in 1969. When he went on a similar work trip three years later he left his camera at his destination when he returned home because he wanted to see what effect solar cosmic radiation would have on the lens but he expressed regrets about it later because in the end no co-workers ever went back to pick it up for him. Its a pity really as it was quite a decent lens, although I'm sure we could find a Samyang that would match its performance quite closely even without the radiation damage.
  8. The pre-orders for their other products like the monitors etc is what concerns me really as, yes, it would only have been an optimist who pre-ordered the 8K
  9. The cheap K&F one to see if its any better than the cheap Fotodiox one ! https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07D9BSKN4
  10. I have the 35mm f2 and 50mm f1.1 in M mount. The M to MFT adapter I've got doesn't play particularly nice (infinity focus issues) but I've ordered a different one so I'll let you know with regard to the Pocket 4K next week.
  11. The only lenses that I haven't put on it as yet are the motley collection of Berlin flea market M42 lenses that I've acquired over the past few years and a Mamiya 645 Medium Format 35mm lens. But it is only just before 1:30 in the afternoon here so you never know.
  12. Good to hear. I've spent a fair amount of time in Utrecht over the years and I've always been very fond of the place. Sorry for the alarming stalker thing ! I remembered from the LS300 forum on DVInfo.net
  13. VERSION 1.2 RELEASED Version 1.2 of 3C has been released into the Play store today. It adds support for the Blackberry KeyOne/Key2 devices for controlling the camera from the integrated physical keyboard as well as the touch screen. The scan process has also been enhanced to allow filtering of device names for easier camera selection when 3C is used in environments that have large number of Bluetooth LE devices active.

  14. Completely off topic but I seem to remember you are based in Utrecht. Hope you and yours are unaffected mate.
  15. I'm not sure how much pie Cinemartin were consuming to be honest. Space cakes perhaps but not pie.
