    I have a Schoeps mini CMIT on my camera right now. I didn't buy it as a camera mic, but it is certainly the best option that I own as a camera mic.

    While people love the idea of CRL, I am guessing that the general market for the C100 isn't actually interested in the data rates. Canon could probably save some some money on design by pulling the...

    The new Canon RF primes are the better than their L counterparts. The new zooms are the first to have IS at f/2.8 and they are about as good as the current L zooms. Photographers are going to buy...

    C100: First rumor of C100 MKIII

    Canon rumors is laying out a road map for the Cinema EOS line of 2020 that includes a C100 MKIII with an RF mount. That would be interesting. It seems a little early for these types of rumors from...

    And if a Sony salesperson gave me that list, I might accept the the electronic ND as a positive even though I don't yet know how it works, but I would have serious questions about why they insist...

    Canonrumors is saying the C300 III is an S35 version of the C500 II, which I think makes sense. I am guessing that Canon would like CRL to become one of the standard raw formats and will include it...

    It makes sense to me. s35 with 4K 60p and CRL using the same body as the C500 II. The big questions is whether they manage to engineer in an RF mount option.

    interesting. I might be interested if the price is right. That's if the "300 Watts" isn't actually just the equivalent of a "300W tungsten fresnel tungsten gelled with a full CTB, flooded, and sent...

    Well, I have an R that I use on a gimbal. But the only reason I own it is because it matches the look of the cinema cameras.

    In my market, it is primarily a choice between Canon and Sony. I've seen a few EVA 1's. And, or course, Arri. Sony won the last generation of cameras for owner/ops because it was cheaper than the...
  11. I thought the camera would be available to...

    I thought the camera would be available to purchase in the next month. I figured Sony was trying to get in ahead of Canon. A 2020 release date isn't good for the FX-9.

    Does the new Sony AF system have the closer/further manual focus assist as the Canon DPAF? I like the one touch AF on Canon's cameras, but the manual focus assist is what actually makes DPAF useful.

    I think it is accepted that the power draw vs light output isn't much better for an LED vs HMI. They also put out about the same amount of heat I assume, it is just that an LED has either a fan or...

    It is a big step up from the FS-7, but Canon has always let you control ISO and kelvin in all of its modes. It has the very useful DPAF manual focus assist, and it has the lenses. Coming from Canon's...

    I have the XL's. I use them for light run and gun and cramped interview space. I use them on a flat base manfrotto tripod with center column. The head isn't any good for long lenses as it will...

    For those who have used 32bit recorders, how do they compensate for audio monitoring? I imagine some type of compression. I mean, the last thing I want is the full dynamic range transmitted to my...

    The proxy's are basically the same quality as the C100 footage. In fact, I have clients who still want C100 level bit rates so I just give them the proxy footage. It isn't as good as the c300 level...

    In the marketing materials for the LC, it seemed to me that Arri was expecting the light to be used more for studios and installs rather than as a location light. In any case, I've never talked to...

    I think you could do a section on the battle scenes in the final season of Game of Thrones. There was enough discussion about why certain lighting choices were chosen and how it affected the viewer.

    I've noticed some clients switching from 1099's to W2's to pay. Maybe it is just me. I don't have an opinion or want to talk politics, but is it just a personal anecdote or are more production...

    I have an EOS R as a gimbal camera and I mostly use EF lenses other than the 35mm f/1.8 stm RF that I just picked up. The RF EF adapters act like solid extensions of the camera. It isn't the same as...
