There's no possible comparison between the video quality of a unhacked GH2 and a unhacked Canon T3i - the GH2 blows it out of the water.
With both hacked, it gets close, but the raw files on the T3i would be much bigger than the +/- 100mbps files on the GH2.
Coutard is a brilliant cinematographer, directly involved in recording some of the most memorable images in movie history, so it's good to see him get recognition.
But come on, "How he Transformed Cinema"? That's just pure clickbait, he did no such thing. I guess "How He Played a Huge Part in Making the Nouvelle Vague Films of Godard so Memorable" wasn't quite as catchy.
And then the article just throws quotes of him saying pretty much "oh, I did what Godard told me to do", which is unfair to the man's talents, and which implies that it was Godard who in fact "transformed cinema".
I'm a frequent visitor to the site, but minimal effort stories like this really put me off...
Wonderful idea. I wonder what the next step is... Making these notes into actual hypertext? How would that affect how the director makes his movie? Certainly they would have to step out of the traditional theatrical presentation system.
I feel like the G7 doesn't get enough love. Along with the sony a6300 and the bmpcc, I'd say it's still the best bet under 1000$.
The G7 is pretty much as good as the GH4 in all video and still features (sharp UHD, very good battery life, light and small, not great in low light, around 10 stops dynamic range, etc.) with a couple of features missing:
-no true 4K (4096x2160. UHD is 3840x2160);
-no headphone jack;
-no V-log (which adds around 2 stops of dynamic range);
-slow-mo tops at 28mbps 60p;
-30min. recording time limit;
-no 10-bit output via HDMI.
There are some other differences, but these are the ones that matter for video shooters.
Good points about the DR-40. I'll also definitely be looking into that Takstar mic.
Thanks once again Guy, for going above and beyond in helping us youngsters.
Hey, Guy. First off, thanks for always taking time to spread good advice in this forum.
But just wondering, why do you recommend the 150$ DR-40, when the Tascam DR-60D is only an extra 50$ or so and the DR-70D an extra 100$? I'm planning on buying myself a field recorder, and the DR-40, simply because it lacks knobs for mixing and a better design for mixing while shooting (like the Tascam DR-70D's design) is an absolute no-go for me.
Another thing, what makes you say the Takstar is a great indoor mic? Low pick-up from wall reflections? Better than a typical shotgun mic for that scenario?
