You answered your question in the first sentence - it's a mount been around since 1987. That means there are quite possibly millions of lenses out there you can use, and others you can use with an adapter. I have a BMPCC4K and a Viltrox EF-M2 focal adapter. It's ok, but, as a Canon DSLR owner, I wish they had made the 4K with an APS-C/Super35 sensor and EF mount. Currently, RF is too new and the lenses too expensive to be taken seriously by low-budget filmmakers.
Sigourney Weaver’s character died in the first movie. Anyone want to have a sweep on how she comes back?
1) Twin sister?
2) It was all a dream?
3) The tree of life thing DID work after all?
4) She’s a zombie?
5) They put another soul into her Na’vi body?
The Cat in the Hat.
Too painful to watch.
You can make all the excuses you like, but it was way too dark and a very bad judgment call by the DOP, the colorist and director.
Looks fantastic. Why am I paying $400/year for Avid Media Composer support...?!
I would add a few extras to this list:-
1) I teach my students to check their FEW - Frame-rate, Exposure, White-balance
2) Battery level - make sure your batteries are good for the next take.
3) Lenses - are they clean? (A quick check/dust-off at every lens change)
4) In addition to framing, take a spiral sweep around your frame to make sure there's nothing there that shouldn't be there. Get in the habit of starting top left, and then scan the frame to check all the edges and the background - I've been caught out once or twice by having some gear or a light-stand leg in the corner of the frame!
Another handy tip - be sure to sync the clocks in your camera and audio recorder before you start shooting. It just makes matching up your audio and video files much easier (especially if you're not keeping a Take List).
