Video & Movie / Re: McCallum Bagpipes corporate, Canon 7D & 550D
« on: May 22, 2012, 12:33:49 PM »
Great stuff! There were almost too many good shots to count.  I can only think of two small criticisms: The WB got a little cold in places, and was maybe tad too cold throughout.  Also, the key light on Kenny McCloud was in the wrong place, causing symmetrical highlights in the middle of his face.

But it was fantastic. How long did it take to shoot, produce? McCallum must be very pleased.

Video & Movie / Re: a casual commercial on 5D3
« on: May 18, 2012, 04:32:05 PM »
Dude, I F______ hate commercials, but this was great. The only shots that really showed the weakness of the camera(s) were the wide shots of the kid in the yard. The opening shot looked a bit blocky too(But that might be Youtube).

All that aside, the commercial was awesome. The kids was a total spaz, and its perfect.  I loved it when he falls down while out of focus at the very end. Very well done for one days work.

His "knighthood" was announced today. Threy just might use him to light the Olympic Flame in the Olympic Stadium.

For some  reason, I imagined them literally using him to light the torch, like a giant flame.

EOS Bodies / Re: Getting a bit restless at the lack of 1DX rumors

It looks like Canon was desperately trying to make it for Euro 2012. But they 100% need to make if for the Olympics (July 27th), or they run the risk of an uber-fail. That probably means that they are going to stick to the current deadline, and definitely no later than the first week in July. 

Otherwise their supply chain guys are going to start stabling themselves in the gut.

245
On a side note, I think the footage from the c300 looks pretty great.

EOS Bodies / Re: Mirrorless Vs Regular DSLR -- Your thoughts???

Am I wrong for thinking that the only reason the mirror exists is so you can have an optical viewfinder?

Video & Movie / Re: Incident on Marmont Avenue
« on: May 16, 2012, 11:48:34 AM »
This was a much better film, with a crew of 1, filmed on a Canon Rebel with a budget of $50 https://vimeo.com/32655795

I'd have to agree with you there.

As for Marmont Ave: Why pay for actors, when the script doesn't require much acting? They'd have been much better off hiring better looking people(or at least more interesting looking), for less money. 

This feels like a group of Hollywood clowns decided to make a movie in one night(after a few bottles of wine).

I'm not following this at all. If supply is flat  (not linear and certainly not linear with a slope of 10), then Cost(Q) = 10 (not 10Q)   So in the first example P = 100-Q, the curves cross where 10=100-Q, so Q = 90 and P = 10. Second example they cross at, P=200-Q = 10 = Cost(Q), so   Q=190 and P = 10 (more sales, same price)

In this case, the supply curve and MARGINAL cost are the same. Cost(Q)=10Q implies MC=10.

So in the first case, you would maximize Total Revenue-Total Cost= P*Q-C(Q)=(100-Q)Q-10Q.

Taking derivative with respect to Q, we get 100-2Q-10=0, resulting in Q=45. Plugging Q=45 back into the demand we get P=55.

I taught intermediate microtheory for 3 years at UNC-Chapel Hill, so for the sake of my former students, I hope I haven't f**ked this up.

Thanks for all the advice! That Arri-Manual was great. I Plan on shooting with a c300. I have a 5D2, but I wanted to avoid using it as a B-Cam.

I plan on using QPCARDs for some general consistency throughout.

Elflord, you're thinking of perfect competition. At worst this is oligopoly. Equilibrium is where Marginal Cost=Marginal revenue: Draw down to the x-axis to get Q, up to the demand curve to get P.

If you don't believe me, here is a simple analytical example:

Assume supply is flat (just like you said): Cost(Q)=10Q

Assume original linear demand: P=100-Q

New linear demand (after adding video): P=200-Q

Equilibrium price in the first case is 45

Equilibrium price in the second case is 105

That's monopoly, but it will be true in all cases where firms have pricing power(AKA: not perfect competition)


251
Seriously, do some reading on supply and demand curves if you don't understand why removing video will not lower price.

You first. Removing video will shift the demand curve down. Equilibrium price will be lower. That being said, the video on the 5D3 isn't that great, so I'm not sure how big of a shift you'd actually get.

252
And why not offer 7D II and 5D 3 as "basic version" for stills capture only (but with liveview) at an attractively low price - similar to what that type of DSLRs cost, before video was grafted onto them?

Um, honestly I don't think this would affect the price of the 5D3 much. The video is basically a free tack on. It's clear that Canon felt that they could not justify putting NO video (since the 5D2 had it), but it's totally nerfed below its capabilities(it's processor is capable of at least X2 the bitrate). The real video/stills hybrid will be about $5000, and probably called the 5D-C.

<p>Another suggestion is the 1D C isn’t going to be the only Cinema EOS DSLR by the end of 2013.</p>

5D-C. It's got to come, if for no other reason than to justify the nerfing of the video on the 5D3.

You can't start off a film, especially a short film, with 7 minutes of f***ing housekeeping.

I'm going to be using this for short films, and studio photography.

I was looking at this. I was hoping for something similar, but a bit lower in price.  But I want it to last.
