Where do you live, how'dyou wanna do this?
Can you talk a little more about your experience with the sony? What feels gimmicky?
True true true true true. The idea is key, not the tool. Always.
However! I think there is argument to be made that the tool can occasionally serve as motivation. The tool can excite me to go out and make stuff. My microphones get me pumped to go out and do field recordings. This is why I struggle with a decision like this. I wont know the extent of how I feel about these cameras until well down the road of owning one. That is my hang-up on jumping towards an investment.
Still, very true, either choice will put me in a good position, I just want top be in a great position :)
I suppose I'll just have to buy one and find out.
Thanks for the reply.
oOoOoOoOoOo what is the 60p cheat? 60i?
As a c100 owner though, what's your take on just going out and shooting with it? There's a piece of me that feels like the "cinema-ness" of it might discourage me from shooting stuff unless its big, planned out material. That, I feel, is the beauty of a small dslr: In a sense, you don't owe it high production value, it's not so intimidating. Do you struggle with that ever? I'd love to feel like I could just pack it up and shoot what ever if I got the urge.
I am currently running through this decision right now. At this moment in time I can get a c100 or an a7s for around the same price!
So the burning question is, are you happy with it? How do you like shooting with it in the field, how do you like working with the footage in post? This is a tough decision for me. The size/low-light of the sony is very appealing, but I've used a c100, it's brilliant.
