I like the image that camera operating is this insanely tough job akin to mining (!!), so much so that a women couldn't do it! hahaha. Classic.
You are a misogynistic idiot who would be told to get the fuck off my set, not that you'd be anywhere near a professional set as you clearly have no knowledge of film making whatsoever.
I'm not quite as down on it as you, but I'm inclined to agree. None of those specs are anything special anymore, it costs a fair old wack and surely it just means when the new line of Sony's, Arri's etc come out Canon will be miles behind again.
I thought exactly the same, i'd say there is a bounce board / white reflector in front of her low down in that backlit still, giving the nice soft reflection up onto her face (unless he positioned her next to something reflective in the environment). He should have mentioned this really as he makes out he's not using any tools at all.
It's the first time I've heard that opinion voiced about brushless gimbals and got to say I totally agree.
Unless you can afford to have 2 dedicated ops (preferably who own the MoVi/Ronin and know it inside out) there is no point having one on even a relatively high budget commercials shoot. They suck up time like nothing else and time is one thing we never have on set/location.
Fine if you schedule a day just for the MoVi shot but if it has to work in around your schedule it's too risky.
Well said sir.
oooh patronising and plugging an expensive box set of tutorials. Double win!
