    Hard to say if any of this is real but if it is, sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

    I hope so. I truly dislike FF imagers for cinematography, they're an answer to a question that nobody asked.

    That thread over at Newsshooter is going nuts, almost a brawl between posters. Very entertaining with a lot of trolling and ad hominem attacks.

    Original DVX-100A, I bought new for $5,000.00, I billed out $28k in customer line items for it before we had to switch to HD with the HVX200. I truly loved that little camera, it was such a joy to...

    Right? I wish they would pay me a commission! It's rare that I so wholeheartedly embrace a piece of gear/solution but I am appreciative that the solution has really eliminated something I have...

    So you haven't gone to the movies in a decade? You should get out more ;-)

    I'll second the OST 801, best lav value on the market. Sankens and a few others (DPA) actually sound better. For around $500.00. The OSTs are under $100.00 and sound 90% as good to my ears.

    Based...

    He's being Eric.

    FWIW, I agree with him, the BMD PCC 6K, if they've improved reliability, is a really sweet prosumer, hobbyist camera. I seriously doubt it will see much pro/Hollywood use other...

    If people want to shoot in 6K, 8K or 24K...

    If people want to shoot in 6K, 8K or 24K eventually, go sick. Just sayin', in the real world, there is a hidden cost in your media, storage and editing pipeline that is fairly significant that seems...
  12. C200: I couldn't agree more, good synopsis. It's true,...

    I couldn't agree more, good synopsis. It's true, non-professional talent are literally more emotionally open with me when I am shooting them relating to me when I have a tiny XT-3 in their face than...
  13. C200: I don't disagree with what you say at all, it...

    I don't disagree with what you say at all, it just comes down to the situation. For the stuff I've been shooting the past couple of years, a full sized camera, while easier to operate with, would...

    I'll ask the more practical question nobody else is. I'm in the U.S. I buy and take delivery of a Z Cam. Two months later, my camera breaks, stops working. What happens?

    So essentially, for most of us here, 6K is folly. Personally I think the hair splitting comparing 5.7K acquisition versus 4K for 4K finish is OCD with some very tiny hairs that most use to justify...

    I saw that he had passed. Yes, a giant among documentary filmmakers with an amazing body of work. RIP.

    You mean the Tascam DR60? If so, I have one. Great little recorder but A, it eats batteries and B, it's not a recorder you can actually put on the talent. The DR-10 is tiny and lightweight and you...

    What I havent seen delineated in this discussion very much is the difference between crew served cameras and single op cameras, that seems to be a large differentiator. I work on several shows like...

    I give my Canon somewhat of a pass, it had some issues but I was pounding it weekly on the front of an 18' Bostom Whaler in high seas so that part was my fault, not Canons fault. Salt water spray...

    I think people who owned the broadcast stuff back then made fun of the low end gear for the same reason that many pros today make fun of mirrorless and prosumer stuff, because it can do 90% of the...

    Thanks for the clarifications, very interesting. FWIW, I think the only reason students were put into the program is that they were observed being bored in the regular class, but still got good...

    All I can offer is anectdotal evidence but we have shot our entire Docu Series over the past year and half on the C200 using the EgoDisk cards, our total material shot so far is about 100TB and not a...

    With the trend toward larger and larger sensors, I predict M43 will just fade from view. Wonder if and when they'll have a GH6? People are generally convinced that mirrorless cameras are subpar if...

    You realize that the Fuji sites are in consensus that the XH-2 won't be out until until 2021, if not later? Don't fall into the trap of waiting for the "perfect camera". The none IBIS XT-4 might be...
