  1. UHD 60P 102Mbps DCI 4K 24P 237Mbps Presumably then, DCI 4K 60P ProRes RAW over HDMI to Ninja V should be doable, right?
  2. I'd also go for the M9. If so, the lens is 61 years old, i.e. was produced in around 1957. A rigid 50mm Summicron?
  3. Exactly; and it isn't only Cinema5D over Andrew Reid, it's also Cinema5D over Philip Bloom (who lives in London, AFAIK). We've known for ages that subscriber count doesn't count, nor does view count; what counts is the number of buyer decisions positively influenced by practitioners like Andrew Reid and Philip Bloom, who both have large and trusting followings. Both speak their minds, but that hasn't stopped, e.g., Kinefinity from asking Bloom to test their new cameras, and this has been key to Kinefinity's becoming a presence in this very competitive market.
  4. That makes their choice of those who were given early access of their new cameras more, not less, mystifying, right?
  5. BMD is a manufacturer of niche products, and as such must be able to locate where a large bulk of potential (and actual) customers are; so Andrew has a point here, viz. BMD has totally missed a golden opportunity to connect with a large number of potential buyers. They should take a leaf out of other niche players in the industry: Red has its own forum, and forum members could seek out some senior members who have early access to new models for comments and guidance; by a similar token, PhaseOne has a good and reliable presence in getdpi. I'm also quite amused at Andrew's reference to Cinema5D. I first came across them when I was going through coverages of trade shows, and their Youtube coverages have been the most cringe-worthy of all, by a country mile. I have come to skip them almost all the time and only watch them if they are the only channel that covers a certain product; this has happened a few times to my annoyance. Yet I agree with most fellow members here that Andrew should not have published that rant. It doesn't do him much good; but it does enhance my trust in him enough that I've just registered as a forum member and composing my first post. YMMV.
