I just noticed that the engineers who designed this camera did design a beautiful double fisted handle for ENG work. Cool!
I don’t think the engineers at Blackmagic have ever heard of a concept know as ergonomic design. Or perhaps they think this camera is to be used only on sticks?
Don’t get me wrong, it has many great features and who wouldn’t love to have built in waveform monitoring, but it would be really nice to have a handle!
VividExposures: "Distortion is extremely well controlled, producing naturally proportioned photographs which are not typical of many other super wide angle lenses."
How is that possible?
As a professional architectural photographer I would say that for roughly $2,500 there may not be a better all around lens than the Canon Wide Tilt/Shift TS-E 17mm f/4L Manual Focus EOS.
Exceptionally sharp. Superb rectilinear geometry. Great contrast and color fidelity. Practically no halation or chromatic aberrations. And the shift function is terrific for multiple panorama exposures stitched together into an equivalent 10mm undistorted interior or exterior architectural study… the money shots that will get you repeated business.
