    Someone over on REDUser posted a test/shootout yesterday with a bunch of 'vintage' and modern lenses, including the Sumire's, regular Tokina's & Sigma's and Zeiss standard speeds, among (lots of)...

    Can’t you swap out the mounts, or is that only on the Pro? The EF Mount is only $175.

    I don’t think I know anyone that it’s happened to personally and I actually own some and used to use them all the time, even on my ENG cameras, but now it seems like most people I know use metal...

    So, to take this even further off-topic, which I love doing... I travel all over the country working and whenever I’m in a state with no helmet laws, I never see anyone wearing one. Maybe 1 out of...

    Depends on what exactly you're doing. So much gimbal footage you see is just wide/super wide running around stuff. But I've talked to Steadicam ops who operate on movies who said they've shot with...

    To be fair, the VariCam was never six-figures. The 27H sold for around $45K in its heyday(it's possible the 27F debuted for more. maybe $50K-$60K). I remember overnighting a cashiers check to...

    I have some friends with the Chrosziel units on their MK's, but I don't know how they perform compared to the Fuji native servo's/grip. Personally, I'd stick with the Fuji grip/servo solution.

    She's definitely a little piggy. I've never used it on a camera as light as an Fs7. My client that has one, it's usually on one of their Amira's, so it does balance out decently with a big body...

    The old saying, "Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it" ties in here very appropriately. And as I type this, I get an update on my phone that 50 years ago, at this moment(4:17pm EDT), Man...

    As someone that owns and uses cameras from multiple generations, I say there was 'something good going on'. It's kind of sad that so many now look down upon "old" 2/3" 3-chip/CCD cameras. The only...

    I like Bon Jovi, but that would be one of the last songs I'd ever think would be used for that kind of video.

    Yes. I got more jacked for the OG trailer. And I don't think it's just nostalgia. Watching it makes you wanna go jump into a jet-fighter.

    Fuji 20-120: $13,500. Real lens. Real servos. Real professional build quality. Real parfocal performance. Manual mechanical everything. Good range(although the back-end is lacking a little) so the...

    While not surround sound, I had a pair of hand-me-down floor speakers(Zenith/Allegro) from my parents and the stereo system(Zenith) for them that I took to college with me. I was watching Tombstone...

    My VariCam's are still making me money. They still look great, even in the context of todays cameras, whether it's "film" or "video". I just did a two-day show for one of my network clients with my...

    If you do get a Glidecam, put it through its paces immediately. These inexpensive, small stabilizers are notorious for un-centered/off-centered gimbals. I bought a Glidecam years ago to try after I...

    Those words don't even make sense together in the context of this conversation. You're talking about the original Top Gun, right? That's like saying you don't like Tombstone or Gladiator. I think...

    Slightly off-topic and 'knock on wood', P2 cards have been the most reliable and bullet-proof media I have ever used in 22 years of shooting. We all had issues with tape, we've all had CF and SD...

    You are not wrong. If you bought the full set, that'd be an extra $10,000. Which is at least two of the "non-fully luminous primes" or would easily cover a nice FIZ system, today.

    That may not have been the best parallel to draw. I wasn't trying to say Sigma is doing anything dishonest. I was just trying to say it seems like a very un-proportionate amount of money vs. what...

    I dig the shelf. It looks MUCH better than the factory one. Mine is on it's last legs. One too many sandbags and other heavy objects thrown on top of it.

    The "fully illuminated" lenses have been available since day one with the "regular" cine lenses. I don't really get having separate "luminous" and "non-luminous" lenses. The only difference is that...
