Yes. All the time for the past 5 years on two national network television shows. I actually get hired because my audio is so good. Killer mic, nice pre's before the C300 pre's. I just fail to see the problem? One less step in post. Digital audio is digital audio, does not make any difference where it ends up - it's all binary digits. If a guy is wearing a lav 20 meters away from the camera or the guy holding the boom is 10 meters away from the camera how does the noise level of the camera possibly affect the sound? If you are serious about clean audio, learn about headroom, eq, compression, good mic choice and placement etc. etc. I understand that the hipster 30kg audio mixer/recorder shoulder bag is part of the look, a uniform of sorts but recent advancements are making the old ways of doing things redundant. XLRs on devices CAN be trusted folks, it's all good.
I use AVCHD all the time for a particular Australian television show. Almost all content on Australian television is 1080p down-scaled to 720p or 576p. 576p is actually considered HD in Australia. Basically everything looks like crap so who cares about the codec. I actually think the AVCHD color is marginally better than Pro Res from the clean HDMI. Anyway,what exactly is a 'trending codec?'
Great post Matt. The voice of reason. I always laugh at the negativity thrown at Canon for lack of 4K but people all seem to be ok with no 4K for the Alexa Amira that costs more than 10 times the amount of the C100. People are just weird. I love the C100, it makes me lots of money. The upgrade for the price is awesome. I will get one and will keep on making money and producing what I think and my clients agree are gorgeous looking movies. This is what the Canon cinema cameras do so well - The GH4 is awesome at everything it can do but one thing it can't do is produce the same pleasing color as the Canon cinema cameras.
By the time I reached the bottom of the comments I felt extremely sad.
Some of you people are just plain weird. "Bitches" is too kind a word for some of you losers.
