  • True that.

    Resolve will NOT get me off Vegas Pro anytime soon. The editting and colour correction process here is MUCH, MUCH simpler yet just as powerful (yes). The UI of the timeline makes a 10...

  • Dale: Thanks a lot. Great work and effort. Could you kindly expand a bit about your experience with the C700? Especially in terms of ease of use and feel of the camera. Too complex and funny menus...

  • This is exactly the kind of coverage I needed. Straight and small enough to read on a phone.

    What's up in the Canon Booth? Is C-Log 5DIV demonstrated? Any new Cinema Line Cameras like a C300III?

  • Yup. The prespective is the same in all lenses (yes all). Only subject distance changes it (prespective). So a 1mm lens on an x sensor has the same perspective as a 1000mm lens on a 1000x sensor....

  • Let's hope it has the same lack of sharpness, organic look and the same colour and dynamic range. Any little change and I will regret the camera trip to the other side of the globe. Will report...

  • Commented on article Sony a9 shooting experience

    You see that's my point. Yesterday you would all give a huge list of why DSLRs are superior now we can only find the viewfinder, with the A9 the point is that it's the first one that can run...

  • Commented on article Sony a9 shooting experience

    Article coming: warning!

    The Sony A9 is not merely an evolution/tweak for the popular a7 line of cameras, it's something much more.

    It's the first mirrorless camera that boldly puts an end to...

  • That's a new question! Having tried it, Cons:
    -No electronics, Autofocus, iris
    -Too Long Focus throw for manually focusing stills quickly **which is the main apparent con when you shoot and have...

  • Fortunately not that long, they gave me a UPS tracking service and my package (camera) arrived in Japan in the morning 7:34 today (after a stop in Paris for inspection for some strange reason!) and...

  • Egypt. But it will end up in Japan (!) for some reason. They don't seem trust their Egypt/Dubai Service Centers for being able to make the upgrade. Or maybe for some other reason (limited number of...

  • Commented on article Trends to watch at NAB 2017

    That's the absolute maximum anywhere in the world not just Germany. 720p or 1080i, (aside from the 4K/8K japan experiments). And around 75% of the world's broadcasters are still SD! But of course...

  • The answer for that is cost and ability. Sigma Cinevized glass are 5000$ lenses (more or less) and this is a dirt cheap 600$ lens. It's very good they could squeeze us what they could into that...

  • I am pretty much 99.9% convinced this is the exact story behind the C-Log upgrade: I suppose it's possible that they connect directly to a header on the motherboard but knowing they can replace the...

  • It just mesmerizes me when I remember handling a RED One 4K prototype and though "F&$@, I can record 3840x2160 pixels INSIDE this tiny body on a sensor just as big as film but I can pump...

  • You're right I was wrong, no hardware changes. Just claiming we couldn't do the upgrade ourselves and that it uses special proprietry Canon hardware to alter the firmware. Whether it's for security...

  • Read last post, clears all the information about Canon's 5DIV LOG upgrade. No hardware.

    ***1DC, it had a different heatsink. Positive. 4K in a DSLR in 2011 was so revolutionary at the time and...

  • Thanks! It's just a reminder that these lenses are not made by purchasing a 900$ ART lens and putting it inside a 50 bucks case. It's a whole new lens built from scratch, just sharing basic optical...

  • I called to check for my camera's location and had some very nice intelligent people answer all my questions at Canon Middle East where the upgrade will take place. They are aware of the skeptisizm...

  • It's not a picture style in any way. It's a whole new video pipeline. The raw sensor data is processed with the new C-Log gamma curve much BEFORE compression to the limited DR of picture styles...

  • The 5D EF mount was simply a revolution in cinema glass. Before the 5D and 7D came out, cinema glass was limited to PL to very high end rental firms, consisting of zeiss and cooke primes mostly....
