Well, it takes a lot of work to design the adapter. It needs to be precise almost to a fraction of a millimeter. And they won't be able to sell millions of adapter to offset the design cost and cost of development production line for the product. Fotodiox is great for money, bu perhapst they save on design and quality control. I had a couple of theirs adapters and they are far from perfect.
Thank you for the article, I think it's one of the best and most informative interviews here on no film school!
This video is a joke as a reply to the Revenant/Tarkovsky video. The author said in the description and comments that how easy to make such a comparison with every film without any correlation.
Tarkovsky was one of the first soviet directors to start using Steadicam, here is a still from Stalker (1979) http://ic.pics.livejournal.com/immos/12057266/36034/36034_original.jpg
But yes, he didn't have an Alexa 65 and a big Technocrane.
I was looking for an adapter for my A6000, I found a couple on amazon and ebay. Didn't buy since I figured out that I can monitor audio from mini jack output on my external hdmi monitor. But since it's more a b-camera sound rarely would records in it.
Yes, it definitely helps since built-in codes are poor. But still, it's a heavy thing especially with two sony batteries on it. C100 with Ninja on it become a bit bulky and awkward camera. It's still good on a tripod but no more handheld, because it's unbalanced and heavy. And the reason why I like C100 is not actual any more, because you have to put 2 pound ninja on the camera all the time on camera and disassemble it after a shot (except if you have really big case or bag).
