    Normally I say choice is a good thing. But I just don't see a need for yet another brand-line of C-stands. There doesn't look to be anything novel or innovative about them.
    I so wish that someone...

    You're killin it! This thread needed some well placed Coughlin irreverance.

    99.8% of clients don't know from Video-ish, this is a DP thing that mostly only we can see. The success of REDs look alone is testimony to this.
    I've seen RED footage that looks filmic like an Arri...

    Are you talking the IS I or IS II version? Have you shot with the IS II? I don't see those issues to nearly the extent on the IS II.

    Flashback: At the time though, there really weren't the alternatives we have today. Your only choice was which model Betacam could you afford? Maybe an Ikegami head versus a Sony head?

    I agree...

    www.lensrentals.com is kind of a genius resource. Rent before buying. Make your short list, rent 'em, shoot tests and then get out and shoot a short film, music video or whatever and see how they...

    I would NEVER buy any camera over $1,500.00 that I didn't rent and try. If you are near a major metro area, you might be able to find a Komodo owner who would let you tag along on a shoot and try out...

    Since you said you were looking at f/2.8 lenses, I assumed you were talking zooms. If you are considering primes, the Sigma ARTs are great and their zooms are too. If you are the kind of person who...

    The Sigma's are not as fast or responsive as Canon EF glass with AF. Not to say the Sigmas aren't great, they are but you should think long and hard before jumping into all Sigma if AF is your...

    Count me amongst the vague, I can't find the terminology to explain it other than it could possibly be something in the DSP and how processes cadence? I can't put my finger on it but to me, the times...

    Thats been my phrase for the stupidity of digital cinema gear for the past 2-3 years, one step forward, two or three steps backward. People's priorities are so far out of whack and the manfacturers...

    It seems like Canon's public perception is at the mercy of the reviewers and the public. Rarely has a new camera been so polarizing.
    The clips I've seen look great, it's just the functional...

    And not looking so "video-ish". I've seen some nice shots but they all have that very sharp, hyper detailed Sonly look that I didn't see on the FX9. Hard to put my finger on what it is exactly
    but...

    Vertical monitors are huge in retail and trade shows. I love the moving menus that have nice still and motion video along with the actual menu prices
    at my local non-chain Burger Barn.

    When doing outdoor shoots, I always have large lens wraps handy and use them to protect the body when not shooting and the camera is sitting in the sun, that's just common sense. I also try to...

    With the way things have been the past few years, I can't help but think that resale, esepcially in low end cameras, is almost nill. What will a $3,500.00 mirrorless be worth in two years?
    I pretty...

    I don't know Abe. Seems crazy to me to consider relying on any camera these days if it overheats under any circumstance. I find on shoots I have so many other
    things to worry about like clients,...

    True. It's probably just because I have worked on so many projects where an F55 was REALLY rigged out and I had my relatively tiny and light C200 or C300 MKII.

    Yep, love to hear your thoughts on the FX9 once you put it through it's paces. Here are my thoughts on it.

    F55 is a great camera but it is old. It is heavy. It requires a big heavy tripod that costs used more than people spend on a new A7 SIII.
    Same with the Varicams, great cameras but the P2 media,...

    I think clients who have been specifying the FS7 will continue to specify the FS7. Many won't even accept the FX9 (simply because it's not an FS7), even though it's far superior to the FS7. Most Sony...

    It's interesting. The AF on the A7 SIII, Sony states, "Fast Hybrid AF with 759 phase-detection AF points and enhanced Real-time Eye AF". For the AF System on the FX9, Sony states, "Developed by...
