    Have you seen Ozark? The first two seasons were shot on the Varicam35 and they looked fantastic. Personally I preferred the look of the first two seasons to the third (where they switched to the...

    I didn't buy a plate, just the connector - and had a camera tech make a cable from it for me. I've had a look, but can't find an invoice/product number for it anywhere. From memory the rental house...

    Yep, 1080p 4:2:2 at 24p, 25p and 30p is all you'll get from the SDI port on the camera body.

    You need the IF box to get 4:4:4 and 50p (via dual-link).

    You can just use a regular v-mount (or...

    A barebones F35/IF Box/O7Q build, and a barebones Alexa Classic build are close enough in weight/bulk as to make no real difference.

    I'd keep looking. You need the IF box for 4:4:4 and 50p recording.

    Having to deal with the other limitations of the camera and not at least getting 4:4:4/50p isn't worth it in my eyes.

    Either...

    The Godox sounds very good (especially considering the price). But the design of the PSU/Controller setup would be pretty irritating. That's one thing the v2 Aputures do extremely well, and for me...

    Yep, I can confirm. Iím running a stable build of Mojave through OpenCore 0.5.8 (and staying put on that build for the time being, since it does everything I need)

    As I understand it, a humble Radeon 580X has the same h264/h265 hardware acceleration as the Radeon VII (which can playback and cut through 400mbps h265 like butter.

    That’s a $200 USD investment...

    If they actually use the scope of it to actually deliver some 12-bit 4:4:4 recording formats, then I'll be interested.

    Generally, we were living between T/2.9-T/4 (which I think is a sweet spot for DoF).

    I can’t say I find it particularly hard or demanding to light to 400 ISO at T/2.9, it’s only a stop slower than...

    No idea on meter readings! But shooting 400 ISO with T/2.9 lenses, we rarely needed to add much ND in front of the lenses, only a stop or two at most.

    Shoot a test with AF on and then again with it off, and see if you can isolate the problem to the AF. A 180 degree shutter is what you want.
