Have any kind of opinion and a minority of users on 'Other filmmaking forums' will criticise you so that doesn't bother me…
That I can understand. Nobody cares about opinions—they are trivial at best. If I were to like the color green and someone calls me a fool for it, I couldn't care less.
When it comes to blogs looking for an audience it gets trickier. Ken Rockwell. Fake Chuck Westfall. Pretty clean cut cases where people knew what to expect. Well, most people.
But once you venture into… journalism(?), people expect knowledge, maybe some research—and not unimportant: perspective. When you pose as a journalist but write opinionated click bait—that's when you get a reaction.
There's other logic in the mix here unrelated to video - I now need a pro stills camera and this one allows me to sell my 5D3, 5D2 and 7D which makes the upgrade cost to the 1D C a lot easier to bear.
Do you remember our discussion on Twitter at all, after the launch? My pro 1Dc arguments? How the 1Dc brings a lot to the table and if you're complaining about price at least consider a user that needs the whole feature set of the camera? I'm glad you understand that point now. Keep them coming.
My original criticisms of the 1D C still stand. It doesn't deviate enough from the 1D X to justify being double the price
Why do you insist on dragging price into the camera evaluation? It's not part of the equation. It comes at the end. It's useful for 'buying advice', but has nothing to do with the camera itself.
It's an amazing camera—but insanely expensive!—a distasteful item for rich tech snobs.
It's an amazing camera—and cheap!!—shut up and take my money!
Both of the above describes an amazing camera.
1D C though has the most cinematic image of the lot. I never argued otherwise.
Honestly, it would be difficult to argue against it, so I'm sure you didn't. But you also certainly didn't come out and say that the 1Dc was the most cinematic camera with most beautiful image.
I don't know if you include me in the general "shut up, forum nerd" statement, but seeing that I paid the $12.000 I allow myself this short response.
