    newfoundmass got a reaction from IronFilm in DPReview BANS links to EOSHD!!   
    I enjoy Chris and Jordan's videos. I think overall they do a good job reviewing cameras, are honest in their reviews, and I've found that when using cameras they've reviewed I come to a lot (but not all) of the same conclusions. 
    I don't really go to DPReview's main site and skip their other YouTube content, but I enjoy Chris and Jordan. 
    There are also, I think, substantially more users there. Which is why Andrew is frustrated; his links being censored there harms his traffic and, frankly, deprives readers access to more knowledge.

    Well the guy who runs Cinematographer DB seems to have mostly given up on the set world and instead is fully focused on his CineTracer software, thus not sure how relevant that is to the discussion?
    Ditto FilmmakerIQ, which is a FANTASTIC channel! But again, I never at all got the impression he currently works a lot in the camera crew on high budget films, but rather he is an educator. 
    Tonnes and tonnes of low mid ish budget commercial stuff gets shot with a GH5, as B/C Cam or even A Cam. While the XC10 is comparatively very rare. Or at least that is my experience here in this country of New Zealand. 

    Canon didn't slash the price of the XC10 because it was selling like hotcakes! (today's price is nearing on half of what its launch price, I bet if Canon had launched it at that price instead then people's opinions of it would have been massively more favorable and we'd have seen many many more XC10 cameras in use)

    Canon's actions basically proved the XC10 wasn't initially popular and they got it wrong in designing the XC10 camera.

    It's cool if you liked it but... It had a 1 inch sensor with a f/2.8-5.6 lens for $2500. Saying it was the worst camera of the year might've been overstating it, but given the options that were available at the time for substantially less? Yeah, it was a bit of a dud unless you're a hardcore Canon shooter. 
    Only after the incompetence Canon has shown these past couple of years have people warmed up to it. But people had higher expectations and the XC10 fell well beneath most of them.

    Yes, but it also means just because Jordan had a popular and widely held opinion, then it doesn't make sense to write him off on that basis. 
     
    Quite a different example, the P4K has probably 100x the praise at launch than the Canon XC10 got. And surely 10,000x more people drooling over wanting a BMPCC4K at launch! Meanwhile I'd struggle to remember many if any people who immediately shouted I WANT THIS when the XC10 got announced. 
    I really would not call a XC10 the "GoPro of the feature film world", heck the P4K is closer to being a "GoPro of the feature film world" than the XC10 is!

    I think you're overestimating how many people are taking work away from you after buying a $500 kit. 
    People that are good at their craft and keep clients happy will always have work. We all have financial obligations and desires, some larger than others. I live cheaply. I own a small home (paid off in large part thanks to my supposed "amateur" video work), I own somewhere in the neighborhood of $20,000 worth of video equipment, all paid off thanks to my "amateur" video work, and I've found a way to live comfortably on $25,000 to $30,000 a year. I've done all that by the age of 34. If someone comes to me and says they can only afford $500 for a gig that others would charge three times for, and I can fit it in to my schedule, I have no hesitation taking it. Some wish to frame that as undercutting "real professionals" whereas I look at it as paying my phone, electric, internet, and grocery bills for the month with one gig. Besides, those type of clients weren't going to pay those "real professionals" what they would ask for anyway.

    newfoundmass got a reaction from PrometheusDM in EOSHD Opinion - The Sony A6400 is an absolute turkey   
    These cameras baffle me because cameras like the G85, which is going to be 3 years old, is by far a better "bang for your buck" camera for vlogging and an excellent b-cam for the GH5. Granted I suppose if you're already in the Sony ecosystem you're less likely to pick up a Panasonic MFT camera, but still, it's amazing how uninspired Sony has been when it comes to their APSC line compared to Panasonic and their MFT lines that have really pushed boundaries. Heck the G85 will be 3 years old this year and still does a lot of things better than new cameras. As time passes, and more offerings are made, my fondness for the little G85 grows because of how much it can do.

    This is such a weird mentality. The quality of work should always be what's most important. If those that have hired me and been pleased with the results consider my work to be "professional" then that's really all that matters.

    Trouble is I Only have a 2K 30" display. SO to be honest it really doesn't look any better to me than my 2.7k GoPro footage. I can obliviously see the smoothness of it, so the info is there. I just can't see it in it's glory. My trouble is when you get older if you buy a 4K or higher Monitor you can't read the damn print. Piss Ant sized print even scaled up is still small as heck. It is a problem that would cost more money than I can throw at it is probably to have 2, maybe 3 Monitors utilizing different aspects of it. Years ago I had a monitor just for text and the other just for graphics.

    The discussion was about business licenses, with specifically the example of selling shoes. 

    And no, we don't ever need a general business license or one for selling shoes. 

    Yes there are some specific narrow examples which has regulations around that: alcohol and food. (and even then, there are various exemptions for example: Food stalls that sell food to raise money for charitable, philanthropic or cultural purposes, for up to 20 occasions a year on private land do not need to register.)

    But if I wanted to import a dozen cameras from China tomorrow and start selling them? No problem!
    Want to order a few rolls of cloth and start making my own clothing designs to sell? No problem!
    Want to open a business offering website development? No problem!

    It is really only once you start to get to a certain scale that the red tape really bites into you (for instance once revenue is over $60K, or once you start taking on your first employee). 

    As for what all those people at the Auckland Council keep themselves busy with? Lots of permits/regulations/consents around construction (thanks guys, one of the reasons we're one of the most expensive places in the world when it comes to housing costs!), or coming up with ways to spend our ratepayer dollars...

    I don't see them switching to a subscription model. I imagine they'll continue to offer the software for free, with a "full version" available for $300. I think they're much more interested in attracting more people into their ecosystem than anything, especially if it encourages people to buy their cameras and hardware.

    newfoundmass got a reaction from IronFilm in Why Sony is not rushing with the A7S III   
    It's not that we're surprised 8K is coming, it's that Sony has not yet released a mirrorless camera that can do 4K60p, so the idea that the A7Siii will jump straight up to 8K doesn't make much sense. They'd need a massive technological breakthrough to achieve that in a tiny body. Who knows though? Maybe with a 1 minute recording limit?! 😂

    The sensor is just one part. Those other companies have built technology that uses Sony sensors, and allows them to achieve things that Sony itself hasn't been able to achieve, even in their smaller sensor cameras.
    Panasonic released a camera that could do 4K/60p in a hybrid camera TWO YEARS AGO. Fuji came along and did the same, and they've shown they're very much taking video seriously. Even in full frame mirrorless everyone has largely caught up, or eclipsed, Sony. That's wild for a company that was so ahead of everyone, for so long. 
    People really believe the A7Siii will shoot in 8K? 😬
