I am a union camera assistant. I currently work as a Loader on majors and as an Camera Operator/1st AC/ 2nd AC on smaller and/or nonunion productions
my favorite clamp is a cardellini. I use them to put wireless receivers on rolling stands for focus monitors, you can put a lot of weight on them and they are easy to tighten very tight for safety
Grain is added to digital all the time
Its not a silly question. I think it would be cool to have IS on more lenses it does help those who are shooting handheld. Canon has a wider prime with IS... I believe it is a 35mm. Although IS on these photo lenses does work in video mode, it was designed to work in photo mode and allow photographers to use slower shutter speeds to capture picture in low light or with long zoom lenses just to make images free of motion blur from moving the camera.
On the other side of that is that no cine style lenses have Image stabilization, for the big boys and girls they use steadicam's and stabilized heads for that purpose. For shooters using cameras with canon or nikon mounts lenses with IS can be utilized. I love using the canon 70-200mm 2.8 IS when using a C100 or DSLR at a wedding or Docu situation. The down side to that lens(and all Canon EOS mount autofocus lenses) is the focus ring throw is short and does not have hard stops, makes it difficult to pull focus or use marks as once you go to close focus or infinity you lose your marks.
I think it could be a good thing to see a cine style lenses with IS built in, I think it would be useful for zoom lenses, and as long as it has an on/off switch. I think that the reason it is not done on cine style lenses is that it would add too much weight and that the way cine lenses are made doesn't really allow for it. Anyone who actually knows about how lenses are built can chime in if they know more about this.
I would think that a 25mm would make more sense for the range of the set although like someone said before I would had preferred a 21mm. But it does't really matter to me seeing as I will probably never buy, rent or use these lenses.
I agree with you. But seriously, I'm so over Red. Their biggest thing they got going for them is compressed RAW and High Resolutions. Both of which don't mean a lot to me. Most cameras with good dynamic range are easy enough to color correct if you did you job on set and anything above 4k is overkill, I don't care if it makes a sharper 4k downres. There is Netflix shows (requires 4k) shot on the Dragon at 4K, not at 5k or 6k. I think Netflix doesn't take array UHD but I would love if they did, Arri cameras are so much more fun to work with than Red's.
But what if the LCD was built in, as is the lens mount and so the only thing you need to buy is cards and batteries.
