I am sure the codec is similar but given the data rate I would assume that the c300 MKII has a significantly more robust iteration. What this means for practical applications is yet to be seen. I have yet to see any artifacting or other compression related issues with the FS7. So perhaps even cleaner footage?
Honestly I just prefer the Slog3 curve and the ergonomics on the FS7. I will still use the C300mkII given the opportunity!
Cameras specs don't make films, artists do.
I agree, its a brilliant culture with a beautiful diverse landscape. I have had the opportunity to go there several times now and would love to go again.
Its so weird how people cling to a product or a brand like this. Its like me calling someone racist because they dislike angenieux lenses. I'm French that means you dissed my country and my brand ect.... NO! Consumers have a right to purchase whatever products they would like. There is a notable risk when purchasing a product in this price range that does not have an established brand. This is amplified by the fact that it is coming in from overseas and likely doesn't have any service centers in the US yet. If you want to risk the money on a camera like this that is fine but you should know what to expect going into it.
The FS7 is a very nice camera. I use one regularly on smaller shoots. Unless I see something that drastically changes my mind I will still use it over the c300MkII. Slog3Cine is almost identical to Arri Log, it allows me to work with a lot of the looks that I have already created and use on higher budget projects.
I would recommend renting the 28-135 zoom first if you are interested in purchasing. Its a good lens but has a few hangups that annoy me. The internal zoom controller is completely servo controlled so it can be slow to zoom in (no smash zooms). Focus is nice as is the aperture ring. The lens is reasonably sharp when stopped down to 5.6 at 4 it can be a little soft. Its hard to complain for the price though.
No, I understood your point. Making broad judgments as to the demographics of who uses this site is a bit presumptuous don't you think? There are plenty of working professionals, such as myself, who come here and view it as a news source. I have frequented this site for many years. There are a lot of people from all walks of life on here, that is why I like it. But choosing to call someone arrogant because they have the means to use whichever equipment that they please is a bit uncalled for. You will likely get there someday if you keep at it. There will always be people with nicer toys.
