Cheers folks, I don't need RAW, been getting by fine without it, and am for the time being on a 32bit editing app, maybe when my suite gets upgraded..
Don't really do much grading at all, had dabbled with color and have a couple of presets I like, but I tend to shoot a greyscale card, 3 wheel colour correct off of that and then go the cowards route of magic bullet mojo and looks, again, a new suite will probably enable a new approach.
The 5D3 was flung in as a wild card, work will be buying new lenses to go with any new camera, it may be a case of mirroring what I've been using from my personal kit, or augmenting it, and so plugging some gaps, or getting fast primes and using my leneses when required.
The 5D3 was the cheaper option, but I think the advice is good, it's for video, get a video camera. Which points me back to the c100. A good point about the external controls. I hate transistor switches and menus on a camcorder. The form of the BMD isn't that big a deal, it will be on a rig (fig or sm-1) or tripod, or video monopod or stabiliser or clamp.
Just thinking 1080i&p is great for now, but what will I want in 5 years from a camera. Probably a new camera, but my work doesn't work that way.
Not keen on the Sony's at this end. Not a fan of NEX or M43 mounts. Don't think we are going to hear of them in a couple of years time. Can't afford PL, so EF seems the way to go for range & availability.
Thanks for thoughts so far.
A question specifically to BMD users. Do the BMD grips help?
A question specifically to C100 users. How is the rolling shutter? Improved any over DSLRs?
I'm going to try and get hands on, but it's a question of what I can find here in Scotland. It's not my money I'm spending, although it'll be me using it, so I have to please the company and please myself. Wouldn't buy without hands on.
Thanks again for the postive advice so far.
