New Camera or New Lenses
We are planning on filming a feature film this coming august and we are looking to upgrade the equipment we already have.
As of now we have a Mark iii and we film in RAW with MagicLatern. We have an AutoPilot SteadyCam and currently use a 24-105L.
Our two choices are:
1. Buy a Black Magic Ursa Mini 4.6k and 5 Rokinon Lenses (with batteries and cards and everything it would be about $9,100
2. Or Buy 3 XEEN lenses for 7,300 and stick with the mark iii RAW
I feel like with the extra money we could spend it on things like a Follow Focus, Matte Box, More CF Cards, and that the image quality overall would improve with the lenses and not so much the camera. 4k is not important for us.
