    I've run a 40' HDMI cable (in addition to the 2' going to the camera) with an unpowered HDMI splitter without a single issue.

    It's 10% at my local rental houses. the "fee" for them carrying the insurance on your rental.

    This is true too. I very, very, very rarely use any soft light.

    For a TV show, where you are running them day in, day out, in a confined space you have to cool, and aesthetics of the image is not a top of the list of concern. Many "Studio" format shows, news...

    True, lenses are already EF adapted. I have an inside man at the rental house, so may do something on the epic soon. Could literally get it for free on a weekend it wasn't out.
  6. I for one didn't say "better" I said "different"....

    I for one didn't say "better" I said "different". FF DSLR footage absolutely has a "look" (especially with vintage glass that seems to accentuate that "look"). Is it better, that is 1000% subjective....

    Haha, I mean you would expect that right.

    I would like to shoot on an Epic sometime just to see how everything else we do (lighting, art direction, shot selection, etc...) translates. The 5D...

    That's just silly.
    If they still look better (which right now they utterly destroy any LED on the market, it's not even a competition) People, especially with large budgets, will use them.

    FF DSLR absolutely has a "Look" that is different than APS-C or even 2K/4K footage. One of my films (shot on 5D2) screened last night on a 30' wide screen (projected Blu Ray) next to Red Epic...

    Interesting, this is why I have my serious stuff color corrected by someone who knows what they're doing.

    I have had no issues exporting entire timelines out to OMF for ingestion by Sonar (which my sound guys uses as well). but the longest project has been 30 minutes. This is from both 5.5 and 6.

    "I have a number of vintage lenses that are rather soft, particularly the wider ones"

    Which is one reason I shoot exclusively on them. That and the color and the long focus throw.

    The ASC manual says it should take an object a minimum of 5 seconds to cross the FOV. Actually it has some really fancy calculation charts that basically boil down to that number. That's for 35mm...

    Start adding much contrast back to cinestyle and in my experience they start to take on an orange cast.

    "for HD the more expensive lenses look better"

    Though I will throw out "better" is subjective. More "IQ" in the sense of sharpness/resolution may not actually look "better" for the subject matter.

    I really don't think you can push any flat profile very far before the skin tones go south. I have mostly gone back to shooting neutral

    Yeah, on the MK2 you turn HTP off right after you open the box and then never touch it again.

    I edit with Premiere 6 on an i5 laptop with no graphics card all the time. You have to render the timeline periodically if you want smooth playback. Also, I use VERY few effects, virtually none,...

    Yep, the point and shoot is basically dead. Nikon is trying hard to keep it alive, but they will fail. Pretty soon it will be Cell phones and high end prosumer cameras with nothing in between.

    My inclination is to think I'll hate it (HATED Avatar not just for the "poorly written after school special" script, but really the visuals as well). BUT I'm going to go see it before I make a final...

    That's basically the same thing I use. I bought the one SmallHD sells. I think it was $49, but don't know that it's any better than that $12 one.

    Just means more moles coming on the market in the future for us that appreciate that there IS no better light.

    I tend to mount to the hot shoe with a little ball adapter 80% of the time. The weight when you have a monitor arm attached to the rods tends to eventually work the rod loose and make it turn. If I...

    Yeah, if they go that low I might get one for a B camera.

    I do it on the 5Dmk2 all the time. It's the go to solution for moire, slight focus adjustment. Usually doesn't take much.
