    Same here, after joining the Union, seeing and experiencing first hand what an organized crime syndicate looks like and how it functions
    from the inside, I took to permanently ignoring their pleas...

    Typically for me, a PA and or a sound mixer, unless we already have them?
    If we do, maybe a motion control slider for a second angle but I shoot a ton
    of interviews. Depends on the project, but...

    It's the type of Parabolic you are using, those funky umbrella type. The cheapo Nice Foto and Laofas I have are easy to clip a 12x12 gel to the rods on the inside, either
    right on the built in...

    I bought the CY Zeiss lenses 99% for their mechanical build and manual focus ability. All of the lenses I own are fly by wire still lenses and the CN E 18-80mm t/4.4, which I am not sure if the focus...

    Ahh, calibrated scales. That's the stuff. Actually a useful tool.

    Not implying any of that, just what I like for my work. My judgement of other's work is irrelevant, they do what they do and it's up to every viewer to decide if it speaks to them or it's annoying...

    If this comes to pass, I hope that the C50 and 90 don't share that same awkward, funky form factor. The C70 is a great camera hampered by a really bad form factor for many types of shooting.
    Having...

    Other than ND filters, a few ND grads to save exposures optically and a Pola, which I rarely use, I don't either. I'm not a fan of bad 80s/90s softening/diffusing filters that muck up the image. ...

    Really nice work. I totally see the Arri characteristics in the C300 MKIII, I just shot a week with it
    and it's a classic, so much nicer than my C200 and 300 MKII.

    I have one little niggle, the...

    I don't invest in art but if I had the money to, I would definitely buy "real" artwork over NFTs although NFTs in the short term
    are probably a better speculative investment. It's like crypto, I...

    Yes, purchased the 4M2.

    Cons:
    The fan noise is actually relatively loud, but bearable. I am using it in my home office right now but when I set up my new office,
    I may locate the 4M2 under a...

    I'm surprised that you didn't mention that almost all waveform monitors in field gear seem to be unreferenced and just have a bunch of random lines with no scale measurements, leaving you to guess...

    Same as the C200, on or auto only so not really, unless the camera is very cold and it's on auto. I find in hot So Cal (It is 90F here today, on the last day of March!?!),
    the fan runs almost all...

    I have to say, I have three Tentacle Sync Es. They work GREAT. But I have done dozens of shoots where I was too busy/lazy to use them with multiple cams or a cam and my SD Mix Pre III and FCP X has...

    That sounds like business as usual for Canon. It certainly was for the C200.

    I can alreasdy see that NFTs, at least for a while, may become a generational line of demarcation with all of us olds saying. "Damn Emporers New Clothes" while the Young'uns (Let's say the under 35s)...

    I juat spent a week lighting a reality series with the Aputure 300D MKIIs and an Aputure 300X. Did not hear or have one mention of the fans from our
    sound mixer and I used the 300x in some small...

    At least based upon my own experience, I seem to have called it pretty accurately. This past week was the first Hollywood project I have worked on since I wrote that last year. Interestingly, the...

    No that it matters but after owning three Tentacle Sync Es for two years now and several Zoom products over the years, IMHO, you get what you pay for. I would buy the Tentacle over the Zoom if I...

    If I was buying a new camera today, after this shoot, it is undoubtedly the camera I would buy. It's a classic as far as I am concerned. It's like the C200 and 300 MKII went to Bora Bora to make a...

    Yeah, someone in the producer or camera department doesn't quite get it there ;-) Yeesh. Supporting that work of art optics with dolly wedges. SMH.

    Our producer would NOT have gone for that, at all, we had to be much more subtle with the specular highlights but this was reality TV, not a dramatic episodic.

    Where I saw the huge improvements in the DGO sensor was in pulling test keys before we gave the footage to editorial. I own the C200 and the C300 MKII and the green footage shooting XF-AVC with the...
