  1. I think the Hollywood machine will largely remain the same. However, this will inspire many, many indie or lower budget productions. I really hope Edwards/Fraser detail how using such small camera package impacted the overall production. I imagine the time savings were immense. And, I imagine the FX3's low light abilities affected how they lit the picture.
  2. Right but that barrel connection makes using another third party solution like NPF or even V Mount wayyyy easier than before
  3. My thoughts, too! I'd think any Micro shooter is pretty happy with this new model.
  4. The internals are all fantastic, but I don't understand why they've muddied the waters so much by using the Pocket 6K Pro body. The whole philosophy Grant talked about just screams for it to be a traditional video camera form factor. ...the app seems really cool though!
  5. I'm wondering if they may trickle some of that 12K sensor tech into a cheaper body. Pocket 12K? Or maybe a full frame sensor? Just 4 hours until we find out.
  6. I'm veryyyy excited about this. I'll probably never own oneโ€”I'm not at that level. But, it shares enough of the FX line's DNA and is cheap enough that I can see myself renting this for bigger projects. Seems like a real winner.
  7. Hmm yes and no. A lot of FX3 shooters, including myself, only film at the base ISOs to maximize image quality. Very often I'll need to shoot at ISO 12,800 and ND down to get the right exposure indoors. I'm also surprised how often I've found a good excuse to shoot at a super high ISO now that I have the option, too.
  8. Oh great! I missed that. Definitely a deal there. Iโ€™ve seen several projections of $1995 so this is a welcome surprise
  9. Looks like an absolute beast. He doesn't list a price here, but he says it's "significantly less money" than the FX30. I may need to pick one up as a C cam.
  10. My vintage zooms hardly come out on shoots with me anymore. They don't have much of a place anymore. They're not as convenient as a modern zoom with AF and they don't have same IQ or character as a vintage prime. They're just sorta meh for me. I do still love my Tokina 28-70mm though.
  11. I have to believe this was only possible because of the outcry of dedicated readers/viewers of DPreview. I'm thrilled by this.
  12. You just can't pass up a deal like that at this stage in the game. I also look so fondly on my m43 days. I was with the Panny GH cameras since the very beginning until switching to full frame about 18 months ago. There will never be a better setup than a GH5(5s,6) and 35-100mm f/2.8. No other brand or system can match that compact setup.
  13. Such an awesome discussion here. Thank you everyone!! Small update: the concert has happened. I ended up using only the 24-105mm f/4. Thanks to many of you I realized that changing lenses would have cost me shots, no matter how much I wanted the look from my primes. Light wasn't an issue as the FX6 is amazing at its second base ISO. Technically speaking the shoot went very well. I was on-site for 2 days capturing all sorts of BTS footage of load in and set up. There were a few pretty dramatic setbacks, though. As with many big name acts, there were some strict PR guidelines put in place that I could not control. So, I wasn't able to get many of the types of shots I'd originally scoped for this project. The video is being reviewed by the band's management now. So, hopefully another update coming soon.
  14. Your spot on with my philosophy. For me, "feeling like they were there" means using focal lengths familiar to people and being positioned in locations accessible to people. Focal lengths like 24, 35, 50, and 85mm are all very familiar to folks these days whether they know it or not due to the smartphones in their pockets. Restricting oneself to those focal lengths ensures that the camera position feels authentic to the general audience and their experience. All that said, I chose to use the 24-105mm f/4 exclusively. I stuck close to those focal lengths mentioned above, but in the end switching lenses would have meant missing shots.
  15. Ah hadnโ€™t thought of this. Itโ€™s been several years since Iโ€™ve shot a concert and yes this venue gets HUMID.
