    Agreed. Just finished it, and whilst I couldn’t call it “bad”, I also couldn’t think of any justification as to why it should actually exist. It didn’t add anything to the canon of the show, and...

    Exactly. It's optional. You can buy one and put it on the back if you like it there, or you can buy the normal one, and put it in a normal position.

    They're giving you EXACTLY what you've asked...

    Another interesting size comparison:

    Sony Venice Rialto Extension Unit:

    Canon C500ii:

    I don’t follow you Donny. You didn’t like how Canon had their EVFs on the back of the camera - they’ve taken it off with the C500ii, and also given you the option of a proper professional EVF that...

    Can anyone confirm if I'm just an idiot?

    To me, one of the most exciting features of the C500ii was the 4k raw recording, downsampled from the full 6k sensor. Files sizes only a little bigger than...

    The Canon is 20mm longer than it is tall. And it's only 5.5mm taller than the Sony - that's nothing. Pop a v-mount plate and battery on the back of it, and you'll be at a perfectly neat and tidy...

    I'm a big fan of SOME False Colour systems. The more basic white clip/black clip/middle-grey/caucasian-skin versions found on Arri, Sony and Red cameras I find more trouble than they're worth,...

    I don't quite follow you there Liam. Out of the box both cameras are basically identical - each comes with a top handle, and a 4"-ish monitor with adjustable mounting hardware.

    I think the Sony...

    Can't really get mad at stills lenses for not delivering for motion work - their design parameters are chasing such wildly different objectives.

    Fuji will no doubt address the focus twitching soon...

    One does wonder. That said, if a company is building prototype cinema cameras for you, just so you can have the best on your latest film, I can see a person feeling some obligation to give back.

    Good memory! Yep, I've never personally used Zebras for exposure metering with any camera. I much prefer the simplicity of a lightmeter.

    But if (for some reason) I didn't have a meter with me,...

    Davinci Resolve 15's Colour Space Transform tool is pretty remarkable. I used it to match a Sony F3 B-cam to our Alexa A-cam on a series a while ago, and it worked a treat.

    Set it to a usable reference point. I forget how low they allow you to go, but I don't think you can go all the way down to 38% IRE for a Middle Grey reading. 90% white on SLOG is 65% IRE, and that's...

    Most Mini rigs are ridiculous. Including the set they've released for the Mini LF. They add so much metal (and bulk) that differences between a Mini and regular Alexa start to become minimal.

    To be fair, the top of the C500ii (like the C700) already has a cheeseplate built-in (which I'd argue serves multiple purposes). So unlike the rest of them, you don't need to lose any additional...

    I can't say I understand people worrying about how a camera looks physically. But it's definitely a good thing that the C500ii has finally stepped away from Canon's usual layout, and gone with a...

    Venice doesn't "technically" have a global shutter. But they've worked some kind of voodoo on it - because there is zero shutter skew, even on whip pans.

    How would you rate the C500ii's rolling shutter compared to current S35mm cameras? Was it just better than the FX9 or solid in it's own right?

    I think that's precisely the answer. It will be for getting proper 4k S35mm capture (properly downsampled I suspect) for use with all of the great S35mm glass people know and love. Both spherical and...
