Just shoot with one and you will understand :-)
I'm not a fanboy but I must say that I always back to Canon, for just one reason. Image feels right. It's not about how sharp it is, or how many K it has, or is it 8bit or 10bit or how many frames you can shot?
It's about this natural looking colors and ability to push the way I want. But let's be frank now Canon have a big issue to solve. They Cinema lineup is a bit messy. Let's take away C500 for a moment from the equation. C300 mark II has no raw (even external) and no 4k60. It has 10 bit though. C200 (which I own btw.) has no 10 bit 4k (even external) but it has 12/10 bit Raw internal to fast. C100 II is a bit underwhelming 1080 camera. Other companies pushes 10bit in small form mirrorless and even Canon have 10bit external on EOS R yet c200 is only 8bit 4:2:0 in mp4 or 12bit RAW. All this contradiction make really hard to choose Canon camera. And the solution is simple:
C100 mk III - 4k up to 60p 10bit 4:2:2 400mbit,. Canon R mount. 15 stops of DR.
C200 - firmware update to 4k 10bit up to 60p internal to SD, 120p 10bit 4:2:2 1080p, Ability to shot raw to fast and 4k 8bit 4:2:2 proxy to SD. 15stops of DR
C300 mk III - 4k up to 120p 10 bit 4:2:2, RAW external up to 60p via SDI / HDMI, EOS R mount. 15 stops of DR.
C400 - full frame sensor + 8k or 6K up to 60p 10 bit 4:2:2, 4k up to 120p 10 bit. External RAW up to 60p. Eos R mount. 15 stops of DR.
EOS R 1DX - Mirrorless equivalent of 1dx mkII but with full frame 4k. 4k up to 60p 10bit 4:2:2, 1080p 10bit 4:2:2. 13 stops of DR. IBIS. option to use full frame or 1,5 crop for video. R mount.
R mount to PL mount adapter.
R mount to EF with positive lock
R mount to medium format lenses speedbooster with cooperation with Metabones, or simply by Metabones.
If only Canon could do this, then they would take it all.
Oh dear, oh dear. Why camera accessories ae so dumb. This is ludicrous. From the top of my head I can think of few better solutions. Similar to phot one battery grip with build in front and back rail mount to support additional gear like flow focus, matte box etc. some nato rail from left and right, two mount holes from the bottom to make the plate solid. Few others mounting points for additional accessories. It should also have some left side part that will fit to the ports part of the camera and provide lock for all the ports. It would be cool if the grip have similar in style to angelbird dock for t5 ssd. Just a hole with usbc male at the end to slide and secure the drive. All at the botom so weight distribution will be proper. I wish I could have time and resources to design such things. It would make a life of a filmmakers much easier.
I wouldn't be so hasty to put c200 into the grave :-)
I often wander how often people speak about things they don't understand and blame in that case Apple that it's to expensive. Please try to build first similar spec. DELL workstation. I've tried. Entry level iMac pro vs dell - dell is 5650$ without screen at all. Pro stuff is expensive because it just work. You can build cheaper custom hackintosh or PC but it will always be, well sort of Frankenstein. If you need it to be reliable just buy Dell or iMac Pro. To be frank I'm the owner of hackintosh and it's really good, but I sent hundreds of hours to make it work, hours that I can spend earning money.
First of all I keep my finges crossed for the author and his film, but I have some problem with the first sentence of this article (Here's how to make your movie look like a sci-fi masterpiece). You don't want to your film look like masterpiece but to be a masterpiece. This is major difference in thinking. You can obiously use the knowledge and inspire from those big titles, but you need to find your own language there. If you just concentrate to look like bladerunner you will never think out of the box. Think about mood & story and try to find your own ideas and maybe, just maybe somwhere in the future someone will give your film as example of extraordinary cinematography. Jus my two cents.
