  • I haven’t impugned you, you are too easily offended. If you have a chip on your shoulder, kindly remove it- it’s not necessary. Please correct me on your experience as I have asked you to do. And ...
  • You have successfully reiterated my point, although unintentionally. You don’t use Cooke lenses, because there are other more important considerations, such as portability, OIS and sometimes AF- ...
  • Your Welcome. Yes, FF “still has it”, as do the other formats for different reasons. My point is to challenge the tendency towards binary thinking when it comes to sensor size. There is a matrix of ...
  • Your hyperbole aside, FF is king... in a few circumstances. I mentioned circumstances where it makes sense. While I don’t know the exact number of silly videographers out there , I suspect the ...
  • Arrgh, I was responding at length and my device battery died- double doh. You can stop down and achieve the same DOF, but there are consequences and considerations. For an interview or otherwise ...
  • Your more than welcome Ellis. Your gear strategy makes a lot of sense to me given your client types and existing gear. My mantra these days is to get by with as few purchases as possible and ...
  • Ellis, So many choices. It’s often assumed that a DSLR or Cine style camera is the way to go. It most likely is for the use scenarios you’ve mentioned. However there’s a time for a camcorder style ...
  • Replied in Bingo
    I won’t assume that this necessarily applies to the OP, but this is so true with the majority of posts such as this. Once you really learn your current platform of choice, the perceived advantages ...
  • I can’t imagine trying to anticipate the camera market , given all of the challenges. It seems that every manufacturer except Fuji is getting sucked into the FF vortex as a safe bet. It appears to ...
  • Bingo. I scratch my head at the notion of putting a 16:9 native EVF in an enthusiast/pro oriented still camera where video is a second or third tier feature/operational priority. Likewise, why ...
  • I had a Fuji XT100 for a short bit, until I was reminded how little I like the 35mm FOV. Give me a 30 or 40mm equivalent and I’ll be elbowing my way to the front of the order que. That is unless ...
  • DaVinci Resolve is a fine piece of software, but it would be wasted effort for where your at now. Get to know iMovie in and out, use the heck out of it and “when” and “if “you need something more ...
  • I have one as well. The versatility of this mic makes it so useful and a great value- phone, dslr, camcorder, boom pole and voice over mic all with versatile connection options. It’s nice to know ...
  • Replied in Interesting.
    I did as you suggested. Although it hasn't stopped the behavior entirely, it appears to be doing it far less- occasionally not at all. That is when a lens is attached. When no lens is attached, it ...
  • Replied in Virus?
    I format my card(s) after every shooting session.
  • For some time now, my GH3 will cycle on and off 3-4 times after turning it on. Although it’s severely annoying, my GH3 is a backup to my backup camera- it doesn’t get much use. Recently, my GH4 ...
  • Thanks for the information, I just ordered one a couple of days ago. Although I don't plan on using mine with a round filter, I will be using it with a (quite) wide lens.  This is the matte box ...
  • Mr. Thorpe’s reviews are part poetry, part tech review. His attention to those considerations that don’t appear on a spec sheet is my favorite part of his reviews. I’ve had the lens for a few ...
