  1. Wow that's a really good point. The Chinese government is extremely powerful and could have seen to their deaths one way or another. Disobedience of any kind can't be tolerated. Gotta kill the messenger...
  2. Wow Sony is lame. Looks like Canon is back on top. That being said, I just bought an FS7. The second-hand prices are crazy right now! I'm years late to the party, but the form factor and codecs are right and my clients like them in spite of the color science. I hate the color science! The coronavirus is such a nightmare. I thought it was only killing the infirm, but according to the BBC article it looks like a lot of middle-aged folks are dying, too. Maybe they would have survived in hospital? So sad...
  3. The more I read about these rumors, the more I think that the R6 will be the camera for me. But I want a Canon FF ENG camera to pair it with that shoulder mounts better and has a better price than the C500mk2.
  4. These clients are delivering in 24p not 60p. They only overcrank do they can slow-mo any shot at will.
  5. 4K120fps would be great. I just mean that for a lot of corporate/doc/eng stuff I shoot, 60fps is sufficient. You can don't need to slow down a handshake or someone walking that much. Would corporate people shoot 4k120 "just in case"? Maybe. But for most of my work, I need uncropped 60fps more than I need cropped 120fps. But obviously for sports, fast-action, music videos, the sky's the limit in terms of frame rate...
  6. You left out RED Komodo. Might as well include FX9 and C500mk2 although they're in a different price bracket
  7. I'm betting that 4k120p will be cropped to half the sensor width. (But of course we can speed-boost it.) And 4k60p will be 3/4 sensor width and/or pixel binned full-frame. I think the R6 may be more useful to me than the R5 if it pans out to be similar to a mirrorless 1DXmk3 and has better low-light and DR performance. But the 1Dxmk3 has relatively limited codec options, which make it less versatile than a real video camera. That being said, 4k120p would be a great feature to offer in any package. Although I bet that general slow motion applications don't need more than 60p...
  8. I hope you're right about the C300III. I've been pondering my upgrade path: FX9 vs C500mk2, with a DSLM for a B cam. Or could I even get away with 2 RED Komodos? But for the doc/ENG/corporate stuff I want to capitalize on, I'm coming to the unfortunate conclusion that the FX9 would be the most marketable choice due to form factor and codec options: viewfinder, shoulder-friendly, many bitrates to choose from... I don't think those clients need RAW and if they did they would probably want an Epic. That being said, I would love for the C300mk3 to be the solo operator doc dream camera I want and have better framerate options than the FX9 to boot! That plus a great R body for video would REALLY simplify my decision-making, especially since there isn't even a Sony 10-bit DSLM yet...
  9. I thought that DPAF didn't work in no-crop 4K 50/60p. But it did work in no-crop 30p and in cropped 4K 60p. Personally, I am getting more excited about Komodo...the FX9 and the C500mk2 each seem to have drawbacks. For B camera, the 1DXmk3 is awesome but expensive and limited codec options. No Sony 10-bit DSLM yet. Komodo COULD be awesome. Although ultimately I have to consider what my clients want. But 16-bit R3D with compression options, speedbooster options, RF mount, half the cost of an FX9...
  10. That may be true, but Andrew's article reads, "The sensor for the A7S III has leaked on the EOSHD Forum..." This makes it sound like the info just came to light. Everybody was speculating in July that it might be the A7S3 sensor, but when the camera never materialized and the rumor mill quieted down, I bought an S1. We'll see what Sony releases and what the reviews say. But if Sony uses quad bayer to give us live HDR that could be amazing...
  11. Sonyalpharumors just reiterated that they leaked this sensor in July...
  12. Didn't this sensor leak in July? https://www.sonyalpharumors.com/here-are-the-six-new-next-sony-full-frame-sensors-with-quad-bayer-structure/ Also, is it possible that it can do phase detect AF using microlenses that cover a 2x2 patch of pixels instead of individual pixels? https://www.google.com/amp/s/m.gsmarena.com/sony_unveils_2x2_onchip_lens_tech_for_quad_bayer_sensors_which_promises_better_af_performance-amp-40523.php
  13. It's just my gut instinct, but I doubt that VR will be "the" future of cinema. If anything, I would guess it would develop as a special genre alongside regular offerings. I don't think it will supplant regular cinema.
