Video editor in Sydney Australia!
That's what I was thinking as well, just feel like if I have 28, 50 and 85mm primes, it would be rendered a bit useless in a sense. But love that lens though, fast and versatile!
Hi Cary! Thank you for this! Currently using a Canon C100 MKII. So would be the Super 35 sensor on that one. Bought that one a couple of months ago, so wouldn't be able to invest in another camera yet :)
I've used it for approx 2 years now and never had any issues with it. It definantly makes the Canon dslrs better by adding some features like histogram, focus peaking etc that you could only dream of before.
They say it's a risk as a disclaimer if something should happen, but in own experience and other people that I know, nothing has happened to them. :)
This is a problem that I went through with my Canon 550d as well. I tried to figure out why my footage looked so blurry and didn't have much detail on wides, and then I realised that I kept comparing my camera which cost me $400 (AUD) to higher end cameras which costs 10-30 times more.
What I realised is just to take it for what it is and make the most out of it. As mentioned by other people, the Canon cameras doesn't give a super sharp video image, comparing to other cameras like the Sony A7s or the GH4, but you learn to work with what you have and do what you can to improve where you can improve.
With that being said, something that always encourages me is to have a look at other people that have shot videos with the same camera that you have, to see what they have done to make it look better. What I usually find in these instances is that it doesn't necessarily look better, but their story is captivating me, so I don't really pay to much attention to the video quality.
Last thought: I also shoot with a flat profile, and I always sharpen it with "Unsharp Mask" in Premiere Pro. Found that it helps a lot. Here is a video I found describing that process: https://youtu.be/dJfwdwUcHaU
Just a thought :)
I was thinking the same! You could get both a 35mm and a 50mm for the same price as the Canon 35mm. And the Sigma Art lenses produces really nice images.
I've been using a Zoom H6 and a Rode NTG-2 for over a year and I'm really happy with the result I get. Obviously, there is noise if your recording levels are maxed and the sound you record is fairly low. But would recommend it for sure! I really like to have the opportunity to do several audio tracks recording at the same time, since The H6 can have up to 6 channels.
