I do it all. I'll elaborate later.
GAAAAAHHHH!!!! a day late.... ppshhhh...
What a bizarre visual treat. Wow.
Although I must say, the streaming compression of 1080p really takes away from the fine texture. We really need a 4k option for this one.
Much agreed, Eric. This shouldn't be an ad space for pirated films. Hope NFS can throw out the garbage. Wish there was a spam button for threads.
I strongly agree with Ben that the Beholder gimbals are great for the smaller BMPCC cameras. They're lightweight, easy to throw in a bag and great in a pinch. The Beholder EC-1 is the newer one, and is much easier to balance in a pinch. AND you can use the handy Manfrotto 501PL adapter plates! With this mounting option, I can go back and forth from my Manfrotto fluid head tripod to my monopod and back to my gimbal in record time.
Ian, that's a really good question... and a tough decision... the GH5 with XLR add-on compared to the C100 mkii... Youch, that decision makes my head hurt. In my opinion, the GH4's 4k has not always worked out the way I thought it would, especially filming indoors or in low light. Punching in from 4k to HD just showed me how much noise was in the 4k GH4. I had to denoise a lot of stuff from the GH4... the GH5 sounds like it might be similar...? The C100 mkii, with the built-in ND filters... man... can't go wrong with it. But again, that's a tough call. Both are strong choices and in similar price points.
Jeroen, I do have the c100 and use it often. I was skeptical too at first, with the compressed AVCHD codec, but I was impressed how tack sharp it is. I came from a 70D to the C100 and was blown away by the difference. Canon's DSLRs are a lost cause, but their cinema line has some strengths. Maybe download some sample C100 footage online. You might have to search for it, but you should find some outlets still offering. Like I said, when I'm doing a day of run and gun, a day of everything, inside and outside, I use the C100. The controls are quick and easy; aperture, white balance, ND filters... it's all right there. And I don't even have duel pixel auto focus because there is a simple focus button in the front... and the focus peaking option is super nice and accurate. For more careful B-roll setups, I'll use other stuff, like the GH4, A7sii and BMPCC... not because the c100 can't handle it... but because I want to give all my babies some love.
The main thing is, if you get a used C100 and you kick ass with it, you can sell it again next year for a little less than what you paid for it, and then purchase the next camera in your sights. Like I said, just start somewhere. With ebay at our side, you can unload it fairly easily when you're ready to make the jump to something else. Good luck!
