Its a curious rig. I think the concept could work really well in a shoulder mounted configuration with an external EVF/ monitor but the way they're holding it in the video looks tiring! :)
I think we will be seeing a lot of BTS videos by big productions shot on this rig. Imagine being a spectator on the Fury Road set... that would be mental! :D
Thank you Robert. Sums up exactly how I feel when reading the comments section in filmmaking blogs. A lot of the time people seem more concerned about using their 'gear knowledge' as bragging rights in a bid for superiority instead of discussing its use in a constructive manner.
Only in North America :(
Yeah but no one knows yet how far the aperture goes before it changes... The lens in this thing is a FF equivalent of 30-395m. If it stays at 2.8 until 120-150, that's enough. Do you know how much a 400m F2.8 lens costs? More than this camera :)
The only thing I'm worried about is bit rates and bit depth which were not mentioned anywhere.
Did anyone else read the press release? (newsshooter posted the whole thing)
This bit caught my eye:
"The DVX200 also features an enhanced Image Stabilizer, including a five-axis Hybrid Image Stabilizer and 4x correction-area Image Stabilizer"
