    I don't mind moving to B-mount (v-mount s*%ts me frequently), but they better put the goddamned battery plate BACK on the back of the camera again - no more of this semi-detached, cable-required...

    I would take one of those in a heartbeat over the gangly mess that is a Ninja + SDI module!

    Rolling shutter on the FX9 isn’t great. I’d be a little concerned with any long-lens fast pans you might do on sports work.

    I agree that the FX6 might be the better pick (if you have to go with...

    Well, I've mostly shot narrative work on it so far, including a Bollywood feature that I'm half way through at the moment. The feature has been almost entirely Prores Raw (which was a nightmare for...

    I really hope this new recorder gives us 4k DCI 1-60fps (variable framerates) like the Ninja V was supposed to have. That’s FAR more significant to me than the 120p mode.

    Electronic ND isn't ready for prime-time, because you can't use polarisers with it, so you still need to carry a full set of NDs regardless. Starting at two-stops and ending at seven-stops is also...

    While the fresnels are handy, I'm actually finding the "Aputure Barndoors" (the blacked-out reflector + felted barndoors combo) to be perhaps my favourite modifier on the COB lights so far. GREAT for...

    I think I remember BB&S sorting out the dimming situation, by building 16-bit (or some other really high bitdepth) precision into the dimming on their Area48 Studio models. I wonder if that solves...
