    This is how the true professional do it:



    Mostly so they can say for the BTS, "Look ma, no hands!".

    The counterweights add a nice marginally-functional stylistic touch.

    "But i'm a fan of the classic sour dill pickle. Enough sodium in one bite to float on water. I think that's how the Jews crossed the Red Sea. They ate such salty food they didn't have to part the waters but instead just walked on top. "
    Ha!!!!

Nat mic on the VF out of the way going to two dedicated ch's, no switching or going back and forth with cables. Etc., etc. But it's what I'm used to and prefer. The camera is sitting on and supported by my shoulder. My hands are available all for operating and not just holding the camera.

    I'm much more of your era Run & Gun, I've spent the most time with Betacams, DBetacams, F900s, DSR500s and Arri SR2s on my shoulder shooting than I have messing about shooting video with DSLRs and mirrorless. After a year and a half of heavy shooting, my muscle memory is pretty good with the C200 and the 300 MKII also. I love my XT-3 but it cannot really be used by feel, I have to look at what I am doing and be very deliberate with the settings because there is very little tactile feedback and still a large portion of the adjustments are buried in menus other than the shutter speed, ISO and aperture.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

    Get to know that X-T3...it's pretty flexible. You can also swipe the screen in different ways to adjust stuff.

    Not everything is going to be possible and you'll always need the menu for certain settings, but all of these cameras have come a long way.

    One of these could help with balance (1.5" cube at 1kg / 2.2lbs): https://www.amazon.com/Tungsten-Cube.../dp/B00XZBIJLS
    Osmium is even smaller & more dense, at $55 per gram.

    FWIW, today's/tomorrow's Sony announcement is about a telephoto lens, not a camera.

    I prefer Katz’s too.

    Amazed they’re able to hold onto their property considering all the development going on around them.
