I think this camera is more "game changer in the near future" then the Lytro Cinema Camera that still seems to be in a PoC phase and well out of reach for many film makers budget wise. If the price range in Craft is what they say... you might actually see couple of these being used.
Switch it to the other shoulder if the cables block your view. But either way you need to have an external monitor with a magic arm since the "built-in" LCD looks similar to Sony's FS700 that is badly positioned (middle-top-behind of camera). Sure more blocks with variations in LCD and input/output orientation will come - hopefully.
Not only is the Kickstarter a place to get finance but it's a great platform for getting your idea noticed - a cheaper way to advert your product on the side while getting preorders.
Re-timing sure is a way around it - but it shortens the clips that aren't that long to begin with. And when using slowmotion footage you want to have light leaks as slow as possible as well and re-timing makes the clips go faster - it's a subtle difference but I'd rather work with higher frame rate material to get the right look with slow motion. With real-time footage this re-timing works like a charm.
Agree, it's far more easier to shoot in 25 (or even 30) fps and downscale from that. This way they would have far more potential buyers.
Totally agree on this! Especially when using a C-stand put the largest leg under the light - the direction the light is pointed at. Gives more stability and if the light is to fall down - it falls to the side and not on the talent. If the light is heavy - use sand bags just in case on the other legs.
