    The weird thing is I've seen a spike in the number of "cannot decode" errors in the last week or two, and nothing software-wise has changed on my end. Perhaps there was a change in vBulletin or some...

    I tolerate Sony FS7/F55 color. I really like Sony Venice color (though I've only worked on a couple projects with it, so I'm not an expert). So I'm intrigued to see how the FX9 and FX6 look in the...

    IMO, not worth working with this client. Maybe the situation could be worked out, but is it worth the time, stress, and risk?

    I'm guessing (and only guessing) that we'll see some lower-cost RF lenses coming out around the time a C100-class Cinema EOS camera is released. Maybe just a 35, 50, and 18-55 or so... Enough to get...
