    Yes the economic crisis would have an effect, but that is not the whole story. Again, when DPs were using only $500 000 cameras, it was a better paid job, whether that is silly or not, that is how...

    Not the BMW commercial, but the entire middle-end of the business has indeed been decimated. There aren't many BMW commercials, and even people who make commercials like that, most of their income...

    If what you said was true, that would be wonderful.

    But more shooters did not magically create more projects and more paying work. What happened is that many projects got cut budgets, so the...

    No you can't. It will never look the same. People said that about the 5D. You simply cannot replicate a proper OLPF in post.

    My clients are not the problem. I am very lucky - other people...

    Anyone who claims that the BMCC image is not different from an Epic or a Red is not someone I would ever hire as a DP. Just the crop factor makes a huge difference, let alone the lack of OLPF. Your...

    Blah blah blah it's all about the art. I know that. I don't need to own gear for any of what you say. I'm talking about people who buy gear, because without us there would be no NAB or anyone to...

    Skin texture looks horrible with the way BM sharpens everything. I'll try to find you a link to some sample photos. Field of view on an Epic is also much wider, which makes lenses look much nicer....

    No, they don't. You are simply wrong about this.

    As a side-note I would like Blackmagic to close. They put other people/innovators out of business, and seem to want to decimate any small shops...
