    The Aputure 600D Mark II RGB that will likely be out in oh say a couple years for $2500 seems more appealing for an owner/operator than spending $10k for an Orbiter with accessories. I'm sure the...

    What I don't get is when people compare HFR to theater plays in a negative manner. Personally, the idea of seeing a theater play that has epic battles, explosions, realistic looking dragons, A-list...

    A better test audience would be showing HFR and 24p to say a third world country of adults who have never watched film or video before. Then let them decide what looks better without having been...
