    Just had a big shoot with a UK client who was flying all of the talent to here in Ca from London for next week. They saw the headlines and said, "Nope, no way in hell we are flying to California." No...

    I keep talking up 4K, UHD and DCI to clients and am often met with blank looks. Guess it all depends on your clients but the EPK/PR/Marketing Departments at the studios don't even know what 4K is. ...

    Lets all hope so. When things were starting to open back up here in Ca. we booked a few shoots that have since canceled. One was a good sized project with a ton of editing that would have made our...

    I'm still using the EgoDisk 256s without any issues. I never tried the Egodisk that Chris mentions but I bet it would work fine.
    The Egodisk cards, in general, with our C200 and the 300 MKII, have...

    In the era of Quarantine, I would wait as long as humanly possible to buy any expensive production gear. I bought two open box X-T3s this year but I had a project that paid for both of them and made...

    I sure would like to see A7 SIII "Cinetone looking" compared with FX9 "S-Cinetone" footage side by side. When I shot the FX9, I really was impressed with S-Cinetone. My Canon and Fuji colors are...

    For client work, those are comparitvely rare for me. Mostly interviews and b-roll shot on stages, conference rooms or small insert stages. Table top and green screen too.
    But I try to avoid...

    At least Sony hasn't the same publicly facing garbage dump fires that RED had through most of last year though.
    I've worked a bit with PR and even a few projects with PR damage control and RED, for...

    One can bitch and moan about vertical video all they want. But there is a market for it, it has it's uses for social media and if someone wants to pay me to shoot a project vertically, as long as the...

    I have to agree with you here. Our lowly 80D AF is better than our C200 or C300 MKII AF, hands down. It latches on and just works on the 80D but does all kinds of weird, inconsistent tracking on the...

    10-bit's not a big deal when you shoot 12-bit RAW ;-) and 8-bit isn't a big deal for the majority of clients unless there are skies or gradients. But for a well lit, nicely shot interview
    or b-roll...

    Tamron?

    Hmm...not in the same league as Sigma or Tokina. I have never shot with a Tamron lens that I though was even decent.

    I had wondered what had become of the trainwreck that was RED's publicly facing image last year? Looks like they picked the wrong person to mess with.
    Yet people are still hot to buy the Komodo?

    We're living in the era of 8K and 12K affordable and capable cameras. Aren't mobile phone cameras on the same path (I have not kept up with it because I don't care about
    cameras in phones), but...

    One glance at the "Camera" thread over on JW Sound would give many even experienced mixers pause. With all of the cameras people are using, there are sooooo many TC issues and interface issues and...

    Weird, we shot for a year and half in the worst conditions imaginable with the C200 screen and the Hoodman, outdoors, on racing boats in the ocean. As long as we maxed out the luminance
    backlight...

    Did your C500 ever shut down? That would have made me nervous, seeing that overheating warning.
  20. There's nothing here that would compell to trade...

    There's nothing here that would compell to trade my C200 for it. Sounds basically like a non-RAW C200 with
    a newer, slightly better sensor and RF mount for $700.00 more than the C200. Not bad, but...

    I use the Hoodman H400 on my C200 LCD and it kind of fits although it crops off the edges a tiny bit. But I think the LCD on the C500 MKII/C300 MKIII is a touch larger?

    It was bad. Really bad, for about 8 months. But now it's good again. Fuji giveth, Fuji taketh away, then giveth back decent AF. I came this close to selling my X-T3. But glad I didn't.

    I've got some great stuff of Elk and the Grand Canyon waterfall in Yellowstone I shot on Hi-8 but at the moment, I don't have a functioning Hi-8 camera or deck to digitize them and post up.

    I'd also go over to YouTube and watch the Curtis Judd videos, he does some pretty good hands-on setup and function exploration that got me up to speed on using the Mix Pres in one sitting.
