    The shoulder mount thing really isn’t a big issue if you just put a v-mount battery out the back of the camera. I’ve got about 3kg of lens/mattebox/follow focus on mine, and I can get perfect balance...

    That'd be my guess too:

    16-35mm T/3.1
    24-70mm T/3.1
    70-200mm T/3.1

    If they work as well as it sounds like the 16-35mm does (strong manual mechanics in addition to auto focus), then it'd be an...

    The 28-135mm is just an awful lens to operate. The mechanics are hot trash. I’d suggest saving your money and putting it towards something else.

    Well, my garage at least! :)



    Do you not like S709? I love it. Like Arri's Rec709 LUT I think it just starts everything off in a lovely, attractive space.

    The Chrosziel kit looks nice, just be aware of the lens support issues if you think you might use any lenses other than native e-mount ones - supporting lens adapters is a bit tricky (due to that...

    I haven't noticed any real differences in smoothness, just ease-of-use - which is vastly improved.

    One area that is problematic is the remote focus control (for Fuji lenses at least) through the...

    I picked up a "Sports" Emmy nomination year before last (for some work I did for NBC for the Winter Olympics). Is that one a fraud too, or are they different from "regional" Emmys?

    If you want “bloomy”, skip the Black Promists, and go for the straight Promists. The “black” dots they use in the BPMs specifically reduce blooming (compared to regular Promists, which use white dots)

    You won’t get proper monitoring from the camera in HFR recording. So you’ll need external monitoring capable of doing the desqueeze (if you need to shoot above 24/25fps.

    Hmm... my two Arris, the LMB-25 and MMB-2 both come in at around 620g. So I'm starting to think it's not really worth the effort to swap one of them over to a 450-500g unit, only the featherweight...

    The Wooden Camera Zip Box Pro would probably be my pick of the new small/minimalist matteboxes - you can configure it for both swing away and clamp-on.
