    Really nicely done Eric. Very clever writing, good acting I do say, and looks top notch. Personal taste - could have gone comedy in the last 2-3 seconds which would have made it much more palatable...

    I'm not sure, I use it strictly for transferring and bought two of the cables just incase one ever failed out in the field. At $9 it's a no brainer to me.

    Agreed. Slap your monitor, z-finder, or other accessories you already own and you’re ready to roll.

    This makes me feel better about the C500MKII. Seems like a pretty gradual upgrade for someone using a FS-7 with a speed booster already.

    C200: View Post

    Dan, the potential situation you’re describing is basically mine for the last 1.5 yrs (minus all the traveling). Having a C200 A-cam and C200B gimbal/B-cam makes shooting a breeze and you can rest...

    Good catch, hadn't noticed that. I only use the BP-30 batteries on gimbal work (and handheld work), which looks like it wouldn't be flush like it is on the C200, but would also not stick out enough...

    I'm unclear on the timecode thing. Base model it has a port labeled "Timecode", but the "Genlock" feature is only in the expansion units (you only need the $499 one for that, not the $1,600 one). ...

    My hunch is that it trickles down from the top where commercial DPs and feature DPs don't own cameras so camera packages are always line items in the budget. I think as you start to come down a level...

    And yet here you are diving deep into camera forums speculating about potential quality to price ratios of mid/high level cameras....... Something tells me the above statement isn't true.

    +1

    I think they'll drop a FS7 replacement. Will be VERY interested to see if it blows the C500MKII out of the water and/or forces Canon to release it a much lower price than usual.
