  1. I'm okay with my current cameras (EVA1, GH5, GH4.) Unless one of them has a failure, I'll probably not buy a new camera in 2021. But, BGH1, S5, GH6, EVA2, or possibly Red Komodo would interest me. At least I can afford them. My main purchase in 2021 will be a Tokina 25-75m T2.9 when it comes out.
  2. I don't think the BGH-1 is intended for the GH5 crowd. This camera has multi-site corporate, and small market broadcast potential beyond anything else on the current market. Z-cam had that potential as well, but the US computer chip embargo on China may cause problems for Z-cam.
  3. Only you can determine what you need. How many volts does your equipment require? Are you powering a camera, monitor, FIZ units, other accessories? What is the total amps you need? How long do you want the batteries to last? Two Blueshape 190 HD Plus, with Dual V-mount 6A Travel Charger might work for you.
  4. All V-mount and Gold-mount batteries are expensive, and if you want run lights, or power hungry cameras then you need the bigger, heavy duty batteries. You will most likely spend over $1000 USD to get even a modest package of two batteries, with a charger.
  5. Lots of good and great cameras available in 2020. I will wait to see what the Red Komodo brings to the fray. Also, waiting on new offerings from Panasonic (GH and EVA). Let's see what NAB, CineGear, and Photokina bring out in the open.
  6. Has anyone used the fp with an external monitor? If so, is there any lag between the camera and the monitor display?

    RED Komodo

    I've heard the sensor size is a little bit bigger than s35, but not full frame.
  8. Does anyone know if the Sigma fp shoots 24 fps, or outputs C4K? If not, has there been any talk that these two options will be added in the near future?
  9. Get a Masters in business. It's applicable to all fields. It also shows that you're serious about the bottom line, and will help you running your own business.
  10. I had a hands-on look at the FP on Friday at Cinegear Atlanta. It seems like it will be a great camera, although most users will want to rig it out with some sort of grip or cage.
  11. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but "comprehensive" will never hurt me. I'm thinking everyone should chill out on semantic issues.
  12. I would rather have a crew with enough knowledge and experience to make things work with the equipment on hand.
  13. I have enjoyed these "discussions", but I do not see the Panasonic S1H as a replacement for any camera currently on the market. There are too many differences (and unknowns) to compare it to other cameras. The S1H WILL be a great camera for those who it is marketed towards. That being said, it may not be for me or anyone else who has contributed to this thread.
  14. I'm not underestimating Pocket 4K users. I contribute to a group https://filmindallas.org I have worked on over 20 low. or no budget amateur narrative short films (not always as camera). Cameras used were: cell phones, Canon T3i, Canon C100, GH4, GH5, BMPCC 4K, Ursa Mini, Sony A9, Sony FS 5 (or 7), EVA-1, Red Weapon X. Lots of people show up wanting to be cinematographers because they got a new camera, but we don't see them six months later. I will wait and see if the new S1H stands out in time.
  15. Sounds like wanting luxury car features for Yugo prices, but no one is selling Yugos any more.
  16. I bought a "consumer" Canon AE-1 body for $225 when they first came out. The price now would be about $950. The "professional" Canon F-1 was about $310. Today's price would be $1500. Now people complain that a "consumer" camera costs more! Back in the 1970's none of the professional photographers I knew could afford to make movies on 16mm. I think we are very lucky to have $2500 movie cameras now. I know you can buy a BMPCC 4K for $1000, but once users find out that movie making requires effort, they will be putting their cameras in back of the closet for their grand-kids to discover.
  17. There will be no cheap "consumer" cameras in five years. It will either be "wannabe professional", or professional cameras. I know that's harsh, but with smartphones taking over photos and video, limited markets mean higher per unit costs for cameras.
  18. But Fuji is not FF, which is what everyone thinks they need. Instead, you can spend $10000 and get Fujifilm MF
  19. If everyone got their wishes fulfilled with this camera, it would cost $15,000 USD!
  20. It seems to be more front to back than side to side. Anyone else think that, or do I need a better crystal ball?
  21. Does not look like a DSLR. That's okay with me.
  22. The rumor at L-rumors.com says slightly bigger than S1/S1R to control heat dissipation. Maybe use the current sound attachment as GH5/S1. I'm not to keen to have something like a battery grip, or the Gh4 sound gizmo attached to the base. My guess is less capabilities than the EVA-1, but slightly more expensive than S1. It will be interesting to see what comes out.
  23. The latest rumor is the new camera will be bigger than the Panasonic S1. If you add up the rumor "built like a tank", a new name Cine Lumix, and bigger than a S1, perhaps the new camera will have a different form. Maybe like Kinifinity, or EZ-CAM?
