EOS Bodies / Re: New Cinema EOS Above the C300?
« on: April 10, 2012, 02:12:11 PM »
If this is true, Canon would be stupid to not have another camera to satisfy people who're looking at the $5k - $7k range.

It would truly be stupid, Sony will grab the market easily. Also don't sleep on Panasonic. That AF100 is due for an upgrade.

I agree with you, but I think there may be a bit of a turf war going on between their camcorders and CINEMA EOS team. A $5K 4K cinema DSLR would probably cause the Canon camcorder guys to draw their Katana blades. 

I disagree with much of the advice given here. The most direct path to your goals, it seems to me, would be the 5D Mk III plus a simple adapter for your Nikon glass.

The dedicated video cameras can't do what a full frame dSLR can do; if you want that cinematic look, then a FF dSLR gives that to you in spades. The dedicated video cameras -- well they look like video. Unless you want to pony up for the high end cameras, such as the C300.

The largest contributor to the "cinematic feel" is a large sensor. The FS 100 has the same sensor-size as film. 3 years ago, you had to go to a DSLR to get large sensor, shallow DOF video. This is no longer the case. 

There are a bunch of good comparisons out there. Watch the demo videos and get a feel for what might work for you. Who knows, maybe Canon will blow you mind with their new cinema DSLR. Hopefully that will be announced soon.

If you are doing this strictly for video then I wouldn't choose either. Your paying a lot for a bunch of still photo features. I'd put my money into something dedicated to video.

I know. It might get hugged to death by the neighborhood watch. 

Interesting article, but I think the devices mentioned above are all considered "professional" from that articles perspective.

I think Sony, is trying to be more competitive in the consumer sweet spot for tech, which exist somewhere <$1000.  To become profitable they are going to have to sell millions of gadgets,  not thousands of pro units.  They also need to do a better job of marketing their software. ACID Pro, SoundForge, and VegasPro are all awesome,  yet under-appreciated programs.

If it kills the C300 then it must also kill their own PMW3 which is just getting off the ground, so I doubt it. My guess is that it will be competition for the Canon Cinema-DSLR, and nothing more.

Methinks scarlet is about to get its butt kicked.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5DMarkIII or Panasonic GH2 for video use???
« on: March 27, 2012, 04:46:15 PM »
That first example of the GH2 is quite impressive. If you had told me it was the c300 I would have believed you. Why does the manufacturer lock up this feature, so that a firmware add-on is necessary?

What lenses were used? I would imagine the differences in lenses would be as likely a suspect for perceived differences as anything else.

I found a link to some higher bit-rate mkiii footage over at cinema 5D. Once you click on the link, you can download it with the tab on the right.!365&sff=1

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Teases Exclusive Screening at NAB 2012

4k is nice, but I'd be perfectly happy getting the C300 image quality in a much cheaper camera. If that has to be a DSLR, then fine. I'll buy.

4k, yes. Better DR and low light performance than the c300? Doubtful.

The 5D3 is basically a merging of the 5D2 and 7D cameras and lines.  The 1Dx is now the sports action camera, so the space remains for the "Studio" version of a DSLR with a full-featured video spec, in a 1D-type body...

I agree that the 5d3 can be seen as the merge of the 5D and 7D lines.

But I think that the new cinema DSLR will be more of a video-first, stills-second cam, and therefore not a serious studio portrait option.
