It is extremely disheartening to read all of the adblocking comments. As content creators ourselves, shouldn't we be supporting those who do the same? I'd gladly sit through an ad or pay $10 a month if that meant more film makers and content creators can keep doing what they love.
Is it just me or does it feel like the eagle is about to dive into the trench and attack the death star?
I always enjoy the things Rampant makes. It is just too pricey for something I might use only a few times.
These guys are beyond clever! Sometimes we put too much stock into our camera and gear, and neglect the beauty that is sound design. Great interview that puts things into perspective for me as a film maker. EVERYTHING is done to give life to the story!
Noisy, yes. But I think with improved firmware, you can probably get a more confident image from it while operating it. This footage looks far superior to dslr footage. The dynamic range is fantastic and there is no way you can pull off that amount of movement with a dslr with out getting some kind of glitchy footage. Thanks Ed for putting this together! I'm still a little skeptical about this camera, but I can't wait to see more of what this camera can do in the next few months!
Hey there, fellow wedding videographer here.
I've shot weddings with 5Dmk2/3, gh4, 7D, C100/C300.
I consider weddings to be a battle of low light. If you can win that fight, you have a better chance at producing quality wedding videos. Unfortunately the 7D and gh4 lose this fight majority of the time since anything past 800-1250iso looks pretty bad. I still use the gh4 as a back cam for ceremonies so I can crop in with 4k, but past that, it never comes out of my bag. A 5Dmk3 can be pushed to around 3200iso before the footage starts to break apart. Now I've heard great things about the A7s. I've only used it once so I can't speak on its behalf, but the menu system felt clunky like the gh4. BUT, the lowlight is fantastic and will win that fight every time. Honestly, I recommend the c100 since you already have the glass for it. Yes, it is more expensive on all fronts, but it also packs a decent bit of features like XLR audio, fantastic ergonomics, easy menu system for changes on the fly, and you can shoot extremely high ISOs. Last weekend I was at f/1.2-1.8 8000iso most the night and the footage looks great! Of course it all depends on your budget and I know many people might shake their head at me for recommending a camera in that price range, but imho, I thing it is worth it. And I agree with McLoughin, you won't be able to mix 7D footage well with any of the cameras listed.
