What is with the field of view angles in this article? OK, a 9mm lens on APS-C is indeed around 110°, but then the 12mm lens is touted as being 122°– so that is a full frame lens then? And then you have a 25mm lens that has a field of view of 10.3°(Circa the same as a 200-300mm lens?)?
You should read the article. They are touting it as a director's monitor, i.e. a monitor that lives with and belongs to the director – not for video village.
Hmm, your headline is at odds with the article? You literally say:
"If you already own the evolution wireless G3 series, it would be hard for us to encourage an update to the 100-p G4 series."
Barring certain circumstances (usually low-light (higer ISO), or well controlled/lit scenes meant to look like low-light (lower ISO)) you should always use the native ISO of the sensor, for maximum dynamic range and image quality. This is true for almost all modern video cameras and DSLR's. In the case of the EVA1 that is 800 ISO (as it is for the C300, C200, Alexa and some others).
The definition of hipster has become – has maybe always been? – so vague. To me, this seems much more like a wasabi gathering of bros, rather than hipsters...
Great article, a potent reminder about what matters and what doesn't in a shot. I however, stumbled a little on this sentence:
"well-known DP Sven Nykvist (The Unbearable Lightness of Being)"
Talk about understatement – around 1990 he was probably the most well known, legendary cinematographer in the world, having shot all of Bergman's films, as well as working with Polanski and Woody Allen. Maybe it's just a European vs American thing, but many people I know could only name one "famous" DP by name, and that's Nykvist...
