K W, yeah right, because Freefly invented the term "Pro" and nobody has ever used it in a product name before. ;)
"Japanese cannot finish a word with a silent "H". Japanese words with H always include a vowel after it: Ha Hi Hu He Ho. So bokeh correctly spelt is boke."
That statement doesn't make any sense at all!
Fun fact: if you read "Bokeh" in German like it was a German word, you kind of get the correct pronunciation (at least as close as you will ever get as a non-Japanese person). The "h" after a vowel in German is also silent and indicates a long vowel.
You are right. I watched the review from the YT link above and it shows the whole menu: no waveform there, only histogram.
I mean I wouldn't have expected waveform for that price, but the headline says waveform, that is just wrong!
Taking still photos really improves your video skills, I think. I am convinced that the moment I got really serious with still photography (still as a hobby though) my video work became much better. Taking photos is also a nice way to experiment with lighting - a few small remote flashes are very easy to play with, and they can emit as much light as a huge multi-kilowatt hmi. Only for a split second of course, but that doesn't matter for still photography. That way you can learn how to use super powerful light sources without having to rent a lighting truck ;)
I worked in news too, actually started there - but my first thought on the tips above was "be careful with 'think opposite'". I mean, it's good to have new ideas and new perspectives, but never forget to shoot the standard pictures first. Nothing more annoying for an editor (especially in news!) when the cameraperson was so super-artistic that they didn't deliver any "normal" footage but only artsy "new" compositions ;)
Camerawork is not only art, it is also a craft. Never forget to cover the basics, and then go crazy as much as you want!
In news or for tv formats, always delivering the basics 100% will get you more work. Delivering the best artistic shots will not get you booked again when your stuff is only useable 80% of the time. You will definitely get booked again if you can do both 100% reliably. But the basics and the reliability are more important. And I think this translates to most jobs in film or commercial work as well, nobody wants to take risks these days...
