  1. 1.) I’m a full-time photojournalist. I do have encounters with AP PJs out in the field. If they are churning and burning, they probably won’t shoot log as they upload and send their video to other press agencies. They in turn do not have the luxury of color correcting before air. If they are shooting an investigative piece or something long term where they have time and crew to put it together, yes they may shoot LOG. Business is deadline driven, "Make slot, not art". SLOG introduces an unnecessary workflow when your slamming video together. Not enough time to render and transcode that.
  2. LOL! Sony has been the only imaging company courting news organizations for the past couple of years. They have taken over where Canon and Nikon used to dominate. They're the only ones still sending reps to orgs such as the NPPA and other folk. There's a good chance that they were offered about 20% or more off of their gear. A9 is definitely much more suitable than anything coming out of Nikon mirrorless for PJ work. The big move probably has to do with video too. Sony video is good and flexible enough for video straight out of camera. The XAVC Intra codec is more than enough for video. Smar
  3. Is this the lowest you’re willing to go? You open to some trades?
  4. What are your thoughts on the a7sii? Still worth it for video these days?
  5. You can get the $200 off. Just give them a ring and ask for the discount. You can get it done over the phone.
  6. You wanna talk policy, but also legitimize conspiracy theories? Are you afraid of facts? Wanna keep spewing whatabouism?
  7. Canon C100mkii will solve all of your problems. Picked up a used one online (ebay or so) and you'll be good to go. Great . Features out of the box and will improve your workflow dramatically. Your 1DXmkii will help you with the slowmotion and the gimbal work too. I suggest getting the Sigma 18-35, DPAF works great on it and will also be amazing with the 1dxmkii (covers the frame with video, especially with the crop. The DPAF is really awesome on it too with it.)
  8. Canon didn't need to do much, they just needed to give a bit more. The EOS R can't even compete with the X-H1 coming from Fuji. IBIS and slow motion and codec are better, minus the DPAF. Dual card slots and a cheaper price would of been great. They should of launched it at $1,799 out the door and it would of sold quite heavily. More RF users, more Canon cameras out in the wild.
  9. lol the Canon excuses. The c200’s slow motion is pretty bad compared to what’s available from other DSLMs! If I pay 6-7k for the c200 pkg, the DPAF won’t be enabled with the 120fps. What’s so great about DPAF if you can’t use it at will? C100mkii... DPAF can’t be used throughout the whole sensor, unless you’re using an USM lens, and even then it’s the slowest of the bunch. C300 doesn’t have slow motion. The only camera with decent slow motion is the 1dxmkii, but you need to use MotionJpeg... Ugh. They don’t have the best color science. The video is hella mushy.
  10. Just spoke with a Canon Rep in my local camera shop. He says that there will be 30, 60 and 120FPS in HD.. It's essentially the EOS RP.
  11. LOLLL... "Tastes evolve"... Dude, intentionally crippling features that existed before and get removed is a butthead move. "NO ONE NEEDS 1080P 24, 30, OR 60. 120FPS IN 1080P AND 4K 30P IS WHAT I NEED". It is a terrible b-cam to the EOS R or even the 80D. I've been looking forward to something like this for a bit. The simplicity of the Canon 80D was great, just needed a bit sharper video. The X-T2 still outperforms it, minus the DPAF.
  12. Try updating the firmware on the adapter and on the H1. You might also need to change the IS setting on the H1 to "continuous" as opposed to just "press only"
  13. You're not an old fossil. People have become accustomed to mediocrity. Composition, framing, and sequencing rarely exist. They've been supplemented by the "floaty" gimbal look. People are always chasing the next LUT, raw recording, but rarely "how do I improve" my work with intention. All of these tools are supposed to be chosen for a reason. Three medium-shots back to back in 120fps is not visually appealing. Great work still requires heavy rigs and heavy rigs mean: union sets, decent money, people being professionals, insurance, purpose, and making a living. The H1 is my vote fo
  14. It's a different beast these days. Sometimes, that C-camera is your main rig... Some packages are based off of iphone/snapchat/ig/cctv video that you drop on your timeline. That sometimes becomes the sole purpose for the package. When you're making deadline no one cares about your parfocal lens or steady shots. Larger markets don't even use sticks and do the pan to nowhere. Some days, I get tired of lugging the hotpod with the ENG cam, but I still do it. A c100 would be nice, but that b4 lens is amazing, with that doubler and macro. You can literally shoot anything. LOL I went with the H1
  15. I'm still living that life (photog life)... ?
  16. I don't think Dan gets it. Dan's current thoughts are incoherent. You need to make sense, create a plan, find your topic, and attack it. If you're gonna be so generic about your topic, no one cares. Why should anyone care about your generic ideas? The topic of activism is too general and no one needs to watch that. If you do your research and find something interesting, then you might have a shot. Find something that is occurring in your area. Are there a particular group or individuals in your community that are activists? Are there homeless veterans on the street who aren't getting enough se
  17. I won't give out any names, but there was a recent cine lens summit in my area. All of those peeps are really nice and have lots of excellent info. That info was better than the free adult beverages they had on hand!
  18. This camera does exist and is already in the hands of some reputable camera stores in LA. I talked with one owner and they didn't reveal much except that it was a game changer and one of the best cameras that they had ever seen. I asked them "game changer? They said "yeah". They have it in their shop and are playing with it. Not to something to be taken lightly, especially with using the word game changer... Coming from Panny!!
  19. You need to find what you’re interested in and go from there.
  20. I was referring to buying an mp3 or ripping if off directly youtube, putting it on your editing timeline, manipulating it is a big hell nah. If you captured the audio while it was playing as use some bits and pieces, sure. You upload a 40 min non-stop take of a party. Might be fair game However, cutting a montage to Bruno Mars or any popular artist without purchasing the license is too much of a risk. It becomes a race to the bottom.

  21. ok dude. I am glad you are making money off of someone else's intellectual property. lol
