I always appreciate the thoughts and intentions of "people tell stories, not cameras" pieces, but they've become incredibly trite; Of course it's true! But that's not why ANYONE gets gear envy.
The truth is, while I COULD tell a good story with nothing but the camera on my phone, I simply do not have the control over the image I see in my head using my phone as I would with a DSLR or a pro-level camera, and that's just as much part of the storytelling as anything else.
I can hack away at a t2i to get the kind of DOF I want in an image by getting long lenses and a focal reducer, but I simply won't get the richness of color that I wanted or the frame rate I wanted, or the format I wanted by using the t2i. Nothing wrong with it and it shouldn't keep you from making movies or telling stories, but this line about gear not mattering is simply untrue.
I wonder when they'll release some footage - kinda unlike them to not release some sample films with it
The one answer I can't seem to get is whether or not they kept Global Shutter. That was one of the biggest plusses for the original BMPCC.
Don't get me wrong, this is a great package at an insanely good price but something missing from DSLR's is cinematic motion cadence and it's one of the (admittedly, few) things the original BMPCC really got right and gave it a very good look even though the color was garbage.
I’m happy so many people were able to enjoy the remake but I genuinely don’t understand it myself.
Clearly, yes, the adults are the real villains but it’s painted with all the subtlety of a circus clown (bit of irony intended here)
I'm not gonna disagree with really anything you said in there :)
And, to be honest myself, Captain America (the first film at least) is one of my least favorite comic book films, and definitely in my bottom 5 Marvel Studios films - for the reasons you listed and others
