Did You Hear That?

Recommended Posts

Hey!
I was checking BMCC oriented videos on Vimeo yesterday when I stumbled across:
[media]http://vimeo.com/49131207[/media]

This guy seems to be in the know and quietly declares [between 03:26 and 03:32 in the video] that there is something hotter than the BMCC coming nine months from now. Super 35 from BlackMagic Design? One of the big boys' answer to this fantastic camera? The former journalist in me can't help to wonder.

Anybody has hints?

Almost funny but not useful here :P. With technology, there is always better coming. Tell me something I don't know. Thanks

you guys have no idea about nothing.
i know for a fact that in 4 years we will have something really amazing it will blow your minds.
infact if you can wait 10 years i guarantee something that will knock your socks off.
come 20 years the sky is the limit.
hold on as long as you can all this stuff is rubbish compared to the stuff we will get in 50 years

Wait, were you thinking this guy actually knows something? No. He's just saying that in 9 months you might need to get a new camera and that this product will work with that one as well. He's just referring to the "Future proof" nature of their products. Not an actual camera product.

      This music video was shot with a Sony Fs700 and Samyang lenses.Check the shots at night, they were all made at 50 fps, without help of any speedbooster, just the combination of the Samyang lenses and the right exposure.We had no help of any kind of light equipment, because we didn't have the budget... just the street lights. For those who are thinking to buy this camera, I can just say that the Sony Fs700 is really a good deal for what it can deliver. See for yourself. And the grain... was put on purpose on post-production to have that dirty effect.

      Hi all, I've been hesitating forever of even thinking about starting the long process of collecting lenses, due to the inertia that the neverending onslaught of new technology brings. There are so many promising directions this whole world could go, from the super-16 BMPC to the full-frame Canon 5D Mark III RAW, so my current thinking is that it's most sensible to go with the largest coverage format (full frame) and collect lenses from there, and then if the market settles anywhere (super 35, full frame, APS-C), you won't have obsolete glass lying around. I'm looking for as many people as possible to poke holes in the intuition or offer different plans as my current one:
       
      I've been thinking lately about collecting Nikon AI-S lenses, since they are the final (and presumably, best?) generation of Nikon manual focus glass.
       
      Some advantages as I see it are:
      adaptibility to the largest range of lens mounts long-focus throw age-related image character je ne sais quoi good build quality relatively cheap relatively compact Nikon quality (perceived? Is Canon just as good/better? Does Canon have an equivalent AI-S-era option that would work on current Canons?) Nikon-optimization, as I prefer Nikon for stills work Cheap adapters can control aperture, as opposed to Canon mount Fast  
      Some disadvantages that I would imagine:
      Breathing and every other problem inherent in stills-optimized/non-cine lenses Difficulty finding cheap super wide options that would translate to normal lenses on much smaller sensors (Super 16, M43, BMCC, 1") Futility of collecting for BMPC when you end up settling on a 5DIII and have all these useless super-wides  
      I'm sure a lot of people on here have thought a lot harder than I have about this quandry, or have skin in the game already, so if anyone has some personal experience or insight on how the filmmaking community is currently addressing this issue, please contribute any and all wisdom! What are general lens collection strategies to maximize utility and minimize cost? Is it presumed that lenses will hold value, so you can just sell them off with minimal long-term losses? Are there lenses that better meet ones needs? Would Canon make more sense, since a follow focus will allow for long focus throws anyway? Are there cheaper options (Contax (Zeiss), for example?)
       
      One caveat:
       
      I shoot stills as well. Is it ridiculous to think that shooting manual focus on all my various stills cameras (NEX-7, GH2, frequent Nikon rentals) is possible, and that I'd need to invest in a second set of AF stills camera (obviously this is a nuanced question, as different photography genres have different needs, but my work does include street photography).
