i would suggest the sigma 18-35 F1,8 art
It's a wonderful lens that will give you more flexibility than a 24 prime for video work.

The 24-105L .  is also a good video workhorse

I would suggest that you first do a little research of your own on google..etc or even go tru past posts on this forum before starting a new  post..tell me how to edit....
It can come off as a bit lazy.

2, Are you serious???      http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how+to+edit+my+first+movie
3, final format depends on the delivery platform   ..web/DVD/Bluray..etc.. so there is no oneoff usual final format.

finaly this is what i was waiting for to buy their usb lensdock

6
has any c100 user installed the new firmware yet?

7
great news can't wait to try it out on the c100.
But am waiting a bit  because the c300 firmware update seems to contain a bug. :o

8
Installing magiclantern will give you focus peaking wich will help by putting a redline on infocus subjects.

when shooting on 7d/5d there is no reason to worry about broadcast standards.
I've shot a movie with a 5d m2 and didn't worry about it

however when purchasing  a new camera it's good to know that the C100 will let you record 4:2:2 uncompressed via hdmi with a harddisk recording medium if and when you want/need it.

even the c100 is crippled with a non broadcast codec but with a ninja you get to a broadcast level.


Dang!  Dang & Blast.  I don't know of any camcorders other than some settings on P2 and XDCAM that actually shoot in a broadcast codec (certain settings of MPEG2 for most digital broadcasts)

I've never quite understood the term 'broadcast codec' in relation to cameras.  And I've had stuff broadcast shot on dv dvcam hdv digibeta xdcam xdcamhd dvcpro dvcpro50 HDCAM EOS H.264.

I know certainly the broadcast editors I work with wouldn't generally thank you for RAW files.  I think it's this years trick.

I wouldn't get too hung up on what broadcast quality is.  The C100 is.  A 10 year old z1 is.  The key is the intermediate and editing codecs.  It'll be squished back to MPEG2 levels anyway before broadcast.

Yes i know i've shot plenty of stuff on dv that got broadcast but thats not really the point .
The codec from the c100 is pretty good and really efficient but allot of data gets trown away during compression wich will show up in editing during grading etc..
With the ninja you get 4:2:2 in a edit ready codec so no need to do any conversion.

4:2;2, why not 4:4:4?  What about all those I's & Os you are chucking away?

Your folk who care that the canon codec is 4:2:0 should by rights care that your ninja codec is 4:2:2.

Seriously man, if you care enough to understand depth sampling to this degree, then you'd know which is 'broadcast' and which isn't.

And what do you mena by grading?  Colour correction?  Manipulation of Gamma Scale? Gamut?

Of course the conservative broadcast safe limits seriously restrict even current or old DR range cameras.

Fixing WB isn't grading.

Adding a vignette isn't grading.

And even converting 4:2:0 to 4:2:2 isn't actualy adding anything, much like converting 4:2:2 to 4:4:4 isn't really fooling anybody but yourself, certanly not resolve.

Using the ninja just gets you the best possible videosignal that the c100 can give.
8bit 4:2:2 recorded on a highlevel 4:2:2 10bit codec ready to insert in your editing suite and stable enough to not breakdown when adjusting level, bringing out shadows,highlights etc....
4:2:2 simply contains more info than 4:2:0 so why not make use of it?

The ninja transforms the 50i output (even when recording 25p) from the c100 to the 25p output you wanted, so no need to explain your editing software how to interpret the footage.
The ninja records on ssd in my opinion a more solid recordingmedium than small sd cards.( however that is just my inexperience with sd cards and haven't jet had any problems with them since i always record on them simultaneous with the ninja as a backup)

I agree that the broadcast discussion is essentially a mute one and is just used by productionhouses as a stick to separate the big from the little guys.

However with a ninja the c100 is essentially a c300 with a even beter "broadcast"codec.
And 4:2:2 doesn't hurt with greenscreen to

Both are awful by today's standards and incredibly by two year ago's. The 5D has three or so stops better low light, but both look fine at low ISOs. The sensor is obviously bigger. There's no aliasing or moire. Both are very soft and flat and difficult to post with and have mediocre DR.


Long story short, get an C100 (or better).

why not just load up ML RAW???


I recently made the jump to a c100& ninja2  and am loving it.
even beter iso performance than 7d, 5dm3, sharp, better ergonomics and controls.

would love to have a camera that can do both great stills and great video.
But todays dslr's are simply to crippled to do it.

even the c100 is crippled with a non broadcast codec but with a ninja you get to a broadcast level.
the 5dm3 can do the same via hdmi-mini-out but that conector is so flimsy its just not safe enough to rely on.

same thing with sound, client worries aside i never had troubles with using a external recorder and syncing in post via pluraleyes/dualeyes.
But i did have problems recording externaly and directly on the dslr via 3mm minijack (bad connection=no sound=nothing to sync with).
Now just plug it in the camera..why didn't someone think of this before ;)

If the 7dmark2 gets closer to the Cine camera's than i'll get one as a second cam
magic lantern on the 5dm3 is greath but raw functionality is only usefull for short clips/shots not if you plan to shoot 1hour+ of footage on a day.

It would be great if some smart programmer could unlock the c100 and make it a even beter cam.

Man, it's about time they came up with a good new (actually NEW) sensor.

Sure. Because dividing every pixel in half for PDAF sensors covering the majority of the CMOS image sensor area has been done to death...   ::)

That's what I'm saying. Dick. Canon was leading the pack for years at the consumer onset of digital, but after the T2i, they completely stagnated. What I was saying was that it's about time we see Canon come back out on top with something nobody's thought of before. Every sensor was "new" when all they did was add four pixels' worth of faulty phase-detect autofocus to the T2i sensor or change up the filters a little. Same garbage. It's been at least three or four years since they were best, and all I'm saying is that it's nice to see them putting in the effort again.
While appreciate your appreciation of sarcasm, I feel you should be able to read the posts better than that, let alone what's between the lines.

disclamer: not a native english speaker here...

Isn't this just a case of mixing past and present tense in a sentence wich is leading to misunderstandings?

shoudn't you have used "It was about time they came....."  in stead of "It is about time they came..."??

then again not a native english speaker here..  ;)

i agree with BozillaNZ,

It does sound like you pulled the lens of the camera without turning the camera off first."is"doesn't like that .

Just turn off body, put on lens, turn on camera, take a picture with "is "on, turn off camera , remove lens.
Does it still rattle??

I had the same thing with my 100L is  and this resolved the problem.
