Used the Konova Slider and Glidecam HD4000. And yeah we were pretty limited with lighting. We and a z96 and a small Canon video light tungsten. Any lighting suggestions? we are looking into light kits right now.

It also of course affects the brightness of the image. Faster being darker, slower being brighter.

EOS Bodies / Re: Mirror-less and EF Lenses
« on: April 30, 2012, 07:32:59 PM »
EF, EFs, and pancakes would fit onto the mirror-less with the adaptor for EF and EFs. but pancakes would not fit onto EF/EFs d-slr bodies. Much like EFs not working on on FF bodies. or like micro 4/3 not adapting to EF Bodies. but EF Lenses can adapt to 4/3 bodies

EOS Bodies / Mirror-less and EF Lenses
« on: April 30, 2012, 07:17:14 PM »
A mirror-less camera is generally a thinner camera than d-slr which may mean the lens mount would put the rear element of a lens much closer to the sensor than on d-slr bodies. this means new lenses are need that are able to focus properly on the sensor. and if an EF lens was mounted to it, it would be trying to focus on a sensor that is further back than on the mirror-less sensor. so what are the chances of a new mount system, new lenses, but with the same EF technology. This would allow for an adaptor to be released that would simply pull the ef lenses further from the sensor, to be able to focus correctly, and still be able to AF and control F-stop.

made a little picture of my thought

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: What do you recommend? 7D 60D T3i T4i
« on: April 30, 2012, 05:45:15 PM »
60D for now. Better battery life. more iso options. kelvin white balance when trying to match "kelvin shooter" or for when the auto and presets don't look just right.

247
It's all sounding like an entry level FF camera would be kinda like a ff 7d in a 60d body and would replace the 5d mkii

I do videography as my main practice. I would most definitely get the 70-200 2.8 II is over the 4.0.. The "is" on the f/4 doesn't help video in dark situations like it does with photography. I have 2.8 my partner has 4.0 and he's always want to open up more. if you have the money then the 2.8.

I also would opt for the the 24-70 over the 16-35. Better all around lens unless you either want the is and extra reach on the 24-105 f/4.0 or do a lot of landscape the 16-35.

1. 24-70 2.8 over 16-35 2.8 because there are more situations the 24-70 would be used - fewer lens changes
2. 24-70 2.8 over 24-105 f/4 is in the chance of being in darker areas.. and shallow dof
3. 24-105 4.0 is over 24-70 2.8 if your doing a lot of handheld/monopod video
4. 16-35 2.8 if you absolutely need 8mm wider than the 16-35

My recommendation
24-70 2.8
50 1.4, or 1.2 although i love my 1.8
70-200mm 2.8 is ii

I would wait for the new 24-70 mrk II. I bought 3 copies in the past, NONE of them gave me the sharpness that I'm looking for.

100% agreed with 50mm f1.4. tack sharp on my 5D III

Yes. money not being an issue wait for the new one. or buy 24-70 used and sell when new one comes out.

Also if price is an issue I love my Sigma 70-200 2.8 IS which is similarly priced as the canon 70-200 is f/4

There are some sigma lenses i would stay away from... but not this one =-)

Sigma vs Canon 70-200 is 2.8

1. Canon is slightly shaper
2. Canon slightly less vignetting
3. Canon $2,300 - Sigma $1,300 - both are on sale
4. both have 4 stops of is = awesome
5. If you'r reaching towards CPS the sigma won't help get you there

If price is not an issue.. then Canon

It is very easy to produce a camera worse than 5DII.

1. They can use a 600-like body
2. They can omit Lens Micro Adjustment
3. They can put a worse viewfinder

Even the use of an SD card although of course NOT WORSE by itself may mean that many CF users who have put a lot of money to buy very good CF cards will have to buy again cards...

I think more likely a
1. similar sensor as mkII
2. 7d-like body
3. digit 5 (not 5+)
4. similar to 7d AF
5. slow burst - same MP or 5-6 fps and fewer MP

EOS Bodies / Re: Leave the 5D Mk III, take the 5D Mk II...?

No way on that 5d2..in a few years the 5d2 will be worth $700-1000 street value while a 5d3 will still be worth at least $2000, maybe $2500.  So there's your $1300 gone if you buy the 5d2.  If you doubt that, do an used gear search on the 5d vs 5d2.  Also:

1. AF is way better on 5d3...really, very superior AF!   

2. 6fp vs 4fps

3. All the "little improvements" that Canon made...and there are too many to list.

all this is easily worth $1,300.  If you buy the 5d2, the first time you find the AF hunting, you'll start doubting your purchase, and the doubt will only get worse...

Good points. I have done many shoots on the mkII. Awesome camera. But I am so happy that i decided to go with the mkIII. Would not go back mkII.

4. Dual Card

5. Almost 2 stops better high ISO

6. Awesome AF vs not so great

7. Great AF =-)
