    Also - any other lens system that's adaptable to Canon should work on this, right? Like all my old manual Nikon & Russian glass I've got Canon adapters for. Won't get iris control on the camera; don't care
    It's DNG guys. Stands for Digital Negative. Just like when you set 5000K in a Canon Cr2 raw, it will be 5000k in say lightroom or such, but you can make that 3300k if you wish. Like a starting point, the camera will metadata the input value of your cameras set Kelvin or white balance. But in your editing software, you can then fine tune or completely change the value. Thats what DNG is. Captured DNG is as raw as raw gets. Adobe uses it as a future proof to the various raw formats from different camera makers. It's kinda an archival Raw format.

    Tokina 11-16 has been mentioned many times. Comes in Nikon and Canon mount. Lots of other Canon mount options out there besides Canon spec EF glass.

    Just in case nobody sees this very clear and precise, laymans explaination of the white balance.

    Really shallow DOF is abused and, frankly, if you're shooting at more than 1600 ISO, you're doing it wrong.

    If you are shooting RAW and Log, precise white balance is no longer critical. Of course CC in post is part of the work flow.

    Don't really disagree for the most part. I'll just be a little surprised if the BMC siphons off that much sales from Canon, that's all.

    In regard to color temperature, that is what we would all expect from DNG, but John Brawley has very clearly stated that the white balance point is baked in. Perhaps he is incorrect, but I think we have to go with what he says until we hear different from Black Magic.

    Why is that doing it wrong? Why is it wrong to use smaller, less power consuming, battery powered, LEDs and going up to 3200 (or higher) if it's still a great, clean image? I don't think it's wrong at all. I think these cameras that provide clean high ISOs, are allowing DP's to be more creative with lighting, with options that we were not previously capable of.

    He asked how to shoot WIDE on the BMD CC. The Tokina 11-16mm equivalent will be like a standard 24-35mm on this sensor: not so wide. 8mm will be like 18mm.
