Well the guy who runs Cinematographer DB seems to have mostly given up on the set world and instead is fully focused on his CineTracer software, thus not sure how relevant that is to the discussion? Ditto FilmmakerIQ, which is a FANTASTIC channel! But again, I never at all got the impression he currently works a lot in the camera crew on high budget films, but rather he is an educator. 9 hours ago, kye said: I think you're right that it does have a place, my point is that that place isn't very visible from the part of the filmmaking landscape most of us occupy, and just it's hard to know how much commercial content is shot with a GH5, it's hard to know how much commercial content is shot with an XC10 because it's good enough to blend in to stuff shot on other Canon cameras. Tonnes and tonnes of low mid ish budget commercial stuff gets shot with a GH5, as B/C Cam or even A Cam. While the XC10 is comparatively very rare. Or at least that is my experience here in this country of New Zealand. 1 hour ago, newfoundmass said: It's cool if you liked it but... It had a 1 inch sensor with a f/2.8-5.6 lens for $2500. Saying it was the worst camera of the year might've been overstating it, but given the options that were available at the time for substantially less? Yeah, it was a bit of a dud unless you're a hardcore Canon shooter. Only after the incompetence Canon has shown these past couple of years have people warmed up to it. But people had higher expectations and the XC10 fell well beneath most of them. Canon didn't slash the price of the XC10 because it was selling like hotcakes! (today's price is nearing on half of what its launch price, I bet if Canon had launched it at that price instead then people's opinions of it would have been massively more favorable and we'd have seen many many more XC10 cameras in use) Canon's actions basically proved the XC10 wasn't initially popular and they got it wrong in designing the XC10 camera. newfoundmass 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
