Yes the Edelkrone looks pretty sweet. Follow focus isn't very complicated, I would think that anything that isn't dirt cheap should be sufficient.

My apologies for digging up an older thread, but I have noticed one thing when shooting video with my 5D Mark III and then editing on a Mac/FCP.
At work, all of my video editing is done on a Mac and FCP 7. Normally, I use a Sony HXR-NX5U, which FCP logs and transfers just fine. I'm aware that DSLR footage isn't native to FCP7 and as such, must be transcoded to ProRes for efficient editing. If I can't transcode directly via FCP, I use MPEG Streamclip.
With that said, I recently shot some footage on my 5D3 @ 1080p/24fps/ALL-I. I loaded the footage into MPEG Streamclip (latest build)....and the program promptly crashed. I tried again and got to the export screen, but it crashed again. I then loaded up FCP7 and entered the Log/Transfer menu, to transcode the ALL-I footage to ProRes. Same thing happened-- FCP crashed when trying to bring up the ALL-I footage.
So I went out and reshot the clips, this time in IPB. I brought the 5D3 IPB footage back to my Mac, loaded up MPEG Streamclip and voila: Footage was converted to ProRes MOV files without issue or crashing.
Now, I may be completely oblivious to some work around, or I may be having a "Master of the Obvious" moment, but for FCP/Mac users, I would advise shooting IPB to avoid transcoding headaches.
Of course, if you use Adobe Premiere 5.0/higher (as I do at home on my PC), then all this is bypassed, due to Premiere's native DSLR capabilities .
Thanks for asking, my 7d is a bit wobbly and chewing up batteries so off to cps.
The RAW progress looks amazing, just need to try and justify the spend. What data rates are you getting? Are you cutting it natively in your NLE? What are you using?
May I ask everyones comments in here about what body they use their Zeiss lenses with and how their manual focusing experience has been?
Any comments on any of that from people with experience?
Anyone tried the Sony RX1 here?
Got one arriving tomorrow.
Excited to see the little guy perform. People rave about the 35mm f/2 Zeiss on there.
So a guy asks for good setting for incam work with no intention of post work and you guys start recommending post work.
A lens hood is a functional object, it's not really meant to be something people marvel over the design of.
