Too expensive for me. Hopefully, it will be lighter than the Zacto rig. For now, I'm adding a Lanparte LANC extension arm to my Franken-shoulder-rig and calling it good for less than $550.
This intrigues me, as the Samyang are somewhat less than the Rokinon. Samyang and Rokinon have always been essentially the exact same lenses with different branding. Now that we have Xeen lenses to consider (different division of the company that makes Rokinon and Samyang) I have to wonder if these new lenses from Samyang might differ from the Rokinon DS lenses.
Looks like a very versatile solution.
Is the TrekPak divider system included with these new cases? I like this idea so much more than the pluck foam.
I also worry about stability as these apps get more bloated. CS6 Premiere Pro is 998MB, while CC 2015 Premiere Pro is a whopping 2.5GB! At some point, I have to think these apps are so RAM hungry with so much code that they will become less and less stable. I would much rather have ALL bug fixes and stability issues resolved before adding new features...but hey, that's just me.
I checked out someone's FS5 last night. I love the form factor, the variable ND filter, the ergonomics and the price, but I'm baffled about the low codec bitrates (1080 @ 50 Mbps and 4K at 100 Mbps). I'm looking to upgrade from my GH4, which shoots up to 200 Mbps for 1080. I realize they are two very different cameras, so maybe I'm missing something here, but it seems that the FS5 codec is rather limited. I took some test shots with the FS5, and find that Premiere Pro struggles playing back the footage. Any thoughts on this?
