    I continued with my plan to ease back on working so many hours and have pretty much stopped taking on any new clients or working for anyone I don't already have a relationship with. I am definitely...

    Is Picture Cache turned on?
  4. FS7: So, when playback is necessary, what is the...

    So, when playback is necessary, what is the problem with the Sony interface and what makes other cameras (which ones?) better at this task when it is needed? Sam was saying the Sony's are lacking in...
  5. FS7: You're right, so I took a quick look at the...

    You're right, so I took a quick look at the manual for the Ursa. Please correct me if I have gotten anything wrong, which is entirely possible.
    Some random thoughts.

    ProRes for the codec? For...
  6. FS7: Quite right. Sam and I could never agree on the...

    Quite right.
    Sam and I could never agree on the best camera because our expectations and needs are so far apart. He regularly brings up playback, AF, and weight as being very important. Three...

    Not gonna take your bait, Sam. Move along.
  8. FS7: Sony already has that camera beat with the...

    Sony already has that camera beat with the PXW-Z450 and PXW-Z750.

    What many of us are wanting is a S35 or FF sensor camera in an ENG camera form with all the XDCAM bells and whistles. I think...
  9. FS7: I may have posted this once before, but this is...

    I may have posted this once before, but this is my proposed dream camera from 2018 . . . the Z550. About the only thing I'd change now would be an FF sensor. Why not?

    Suggested product name: ...

    You have summed up the major points of my dream camera that I wrote up last year before NAB and proposed to Sony.
  11. FS7: Yeah, we know that you don't understand the...

    Yeah, we know that you don't understand the beauty of the traditional ENG design even though it solves a lot of the gripes you bring up in other threads. Once again, here's just a FEW of the...
  12. FS7: It's not the just the weight, it is the total...

    It's not the just the weight, it is the total ergonomics, button placement, handheld balance, etc. that only an ENG camera design offers. And I miss being able to sling a camera over my shoulder...
  13. FS7: I'm just the opposite. I'd gladly pay the price...

    I'm just the opposite. I'd gladly pay the price for a bigger ENG-style FX9 that looks like a Z450. Just shows how there is no way to please everyone.
  14. FS7: Yeah, a smaller FS7/FX9 is an attractive idea but...

    Yeah, a smaller FS7/FX9 is an attractive idea but I wouldn't expect this camera to be it. I'm sure it will basically be a FF version of the FS5MII with a few additional changes. Just as the FX9 is...
  15. FS7: You just described the FS7 and the FX9. Buy one....

    You just described the FS7 and the FX9. Buy one.
    If the FX6 is basically a FF version of the FS5, as I think it will be, then it is unlikely to have any of those things because it won't be an XDCAM....
  16. FS7: I think the FX6 will be to the FS5 what the FX9...

    I think the FX6 will be to the FS5 what the FX9 is to the FS7.

    EXACTLY!! I have similar stories where b-roll I shot for a shoot has earned me way more than I got for my day rate.
    Thanks for signing up for my course and I think you will regret not putting more...

    I've released an update video that crunches my own numbers for 2019 so far. Hopefully it will lay some people's skepticism about making money from stock footage to rest. Anyone who has a professional...

    Just to be clear, I just reported what the camera's manual said the power consumption was. I didn't characterize the camera as being power hungry. In fact, I'm, surprised it isn't higher given all...

    The ECM-MC2 is a great little mic for day-to-day use. I move it from camera to camera when I want something small and light, and that doesn't protrude too far above the lens. The sound is...

    That is correct. Here are the exact numbers from the operation manual. I'm not sure if they have been published elsewhere so here they are . . .

    Power consumption:

    Approx. 35.2 W (body, lens,...

    The AF menus of the Z280 are pretty much the same ones as the FX9, and you are right, it makes a big difference to have all that power at your fingertips to customize how AF works.

    You just can't stop digging a deeper hole for yourself, can you? Grow up and think before you post.

    Thanks for proving my point. You obviously don't know how the User Menu works even though you think you do or else you'd never make such a statement. Go read the manual and learn how User Menus work...
