    It works tremendously well. Because it's not trying to guess at the motion like a warp stabiliser does - it KNOWS what the motion was, so can compensate accordingly.

    24fps @ 180 shutter has a lot...

    An important thing to remember with gyroscopic-based stabilisation (and this goes for both the FX9 and C500ii), is that it really needs shorter shutter angles to work effectively. The motion blur at...

    If used like "normal" EOS camera (with the Canon style batteries and viewfinder added to the back), I think the viewfinder will basically square off the rear end of the camera.

    I don't really see...

    Why?

    Looking just at the image quality, the downsampled 4k does seem like a noticeable step up from the 4k-for-4k of the FS7.

    It will certainly be handy if they're able to get the Sigmas optimised to work well with it. One really nice aspect of the Sigmas is that you could have a set of Cine versions for normal work, and a...

    C200 (the version without the EVF), seems like the obvious candidate. I just can’t see any of their little 8-bit options being able to keep up image-quality-wise.

    I think JB has hit the nail on the head. The hyperealism of HFR seems to work for gaming perhaps because of the direct engagement a gamer has. They’re IN the game. A film is a different experience,...

    Agreed. Just finished it, and whilst I couldn’t call it “bad”, I also couldn’t think of any justification as to why it should actually exist. It didn’t add anything to the canon of the show, and...

    Exactly. It's optional. You can buy one and put it on the back if you like it there, or you can buy the normal one, and put it in a normal position.

    They're giving you EXACTLY what you've asked...

    I don’t follow you Donny. You didn’t like how Canon had their EVFs on the back of the camera - they’ve taken it off with the C500ii, and also given you the option of a proper professional EVF that...

    Can anyone confirm if I'm just an idiot?

    To me, one of the most exciting features of the C500ii was the 4k raw recording, downsampled from the full 6k sensor. Files sizes only a little bigger than...

    The Canon is 20mm longer than it is tall. And it's only 5.5mm taller than the Sony - that's nothing. Pop a v-mount plate and battery on the back of it, and you'll be at a perfectly neat and tidy...

    I don't quite follow you there Liam. Out of the box both cameras are basically identical - each comes with a top handle, and a 4"-ish monitor with adjustable mounting hardware.

    I think the Sony...

    Can't really get mad at stills lenses for not delivering for motion work - their design parameters are chasing such wildly different objectives.

    One does wonder. That said, if a company is building prototype cinema cameras for you, just so you can have the best on your latest film, I can see a person feeling some obligation to give back.

    Good memory! Yep, I've never personally used Zebras for exposure metering with any camera. I much prefer the simplicity of a lightmeter.

    But if (for some reason) I didn't have a meter with me,...

    Set it to a usable reference point. I forget how low they allow you to go, but I don't think you can go all the way down to 38% IRE for a Middle Grey reading. 90% white on SLOG is 65% IRE, and that's...
