Actually, IBIS is excellent for use with cinema lenses like the Veydras; and IBIS helps even when flying on a gimbal. 

I guess so. But never tested it, so no opinion about. Even though, I've read some jerky corrections may introduce any noise to the complement. Well, just wondering now...

They're great : ) My 1st one was the 24-105 f/4 and I actually recall I even posted on dvxuser a non-scientific test I made in Germany I remind now... ten years ago hehe just remember ;-)

I have the very first version of the 14-45mm OIS Panasonic kit lens they made. It is considered to be the sharpest kit lens Panny ever made. And the one I have is crazy good sharpness wise, and it is pretty amazing how well the OIS works in it. I can't believe how they got the OIS so good on one of the first lenses they made using it.

I have a Sony 28-70mm, my son has the Sony 16-35mm F4 lens and they both have OSS.And I have 3 Canon lenses with imagine stabilization in them. The 10-22mm EFS one and my 28-70mm Canon works great on my A7s. So I have a pretty good mix of lens that work pretty good handheld.

Could be. Happens occasionally. But nowhere near as bad as shaky handheld.

In fact, Don. These major players are tough manufacturers. Their glass never disappoints, at least to me :-)

I fully agree on that one, Jon.

We live great times... My own expectations in 2001 when HDCAM arrived (and put my plans out of film path) have been beaten indeed. I personally heard Tonino Guerra to tell me and a few other people there that those Japanese cameras were the future. Michelangelo Antonioni dreamed with when he shot The Mystery of Oberwald two and a half decades before. Pity he had no chance to be with us nowadays.

That is true.

I just bought this used Tripod on ebay yesterday. My other tripod was on the heavy side. Like twice the weight, 12 pounds so this ought to help. You know I am a Tripod guy, so a lot of this IBIS stuff I don't have a lot of use for. But I do want to buy the new 4K BMPCC so will be using my Came TV Gimbal with it. Should fit on it I hope.

I love good tripods myself. But some handheld or rig stuff with a little movement can really breathe some life into the shots.

Not understanding that BMD discussion wrt timecode.

It accepts it in but doesn't jam to it..preset only?

So...has to be continuously fed by a tentacle, mozegear or similar box? That would be standard op for most..but most cams need to be switched to free run (as opposed to preset) for that to work.

I just found a Q&A with a 'Black Magic Design Expert'. Let me know if there's a better way to display this. I'll try to add to it as more information comes.

Nice video that shows all of the menu options, etc.

 

Thanks webrunner. It's a little beauty, isn't it?

And thanks, Anaconda, these are some NFAQ, and good answers too.

@Don Kotlos & @jonpais

I've heard it's switchable. There's three buttons just behind the record button on the top - not the custom ones near the power switch - ISO, Shutter, WB, and as far as I can tell, they change the function of the dial/wheel. The aperture button is on the back where your thumb would rest, under the focus button. I assume that will also change the function of the wheel.

You'll also be able to change all of those on the touchscreen if that's your thing (personally, I like buttons and dials)

More Q&A. @RWR there's more info on timecode.

I hope BM implement a way of preventing accidental setting changes with that dial as efficiently and effectively as the method of changing them when required...

The buttons on the top (Iso, WB, S) bring up the appropriate page on the menu to change said settings.  You basically press it once, menu pops up, and then you can change the settings with the dial.  It's different from a dslr where often you hold down the button if you want to change a setting.

I've had a few cameras with these types of dial and it's just never been a problem. If there's something that can spin the dial to change settings, then that something is just too close to the camera. If you're worried your finger will spin it, don't put your finger on it once it's set. 

I think the more worrying thing is the touch screen sliders etc, they're much easier to accidentally swipe without noticing. The scroll wheel thingy more than likely has some kind of tactile feedback, so you'll know if you've changed something. That's why as I said before, I prefer buttons and dials over touchscreens.

Edit: @Savannah Miller thanks, that sounds like it get's locked down once you've set your settings.

By default it changes the aperture, so no.
