I'm surprised about all the "filmmakers" who care about auto focus. I personally don't.
The question I have is, when I'm going to compare the footage of that new Sony to an "old" $ 800 (ebay price as I write this) BMCC 2.5K MFT with speedbooster and a Zeiss lens, how is it going to fare? Does this Sony make that old cam, the BMCC 2.5K totally obsolete? That's what should be relevant for filmmakers.
I'm afraid it could be killing the GH5s in the egg, at only $ 2000https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1394217-REG/sony_ilce_7m3_alpha_a...
I'm glad to see that somebody finally got it. Of course IBIS is not useful! When was the last time you watch a movie, sorry a film, shot with a system that had IBIS. Why do you think the pro still use steadicams?
I don't understand why so many people are pissed off at the lack of IBIS, just don't get it.
On the same note, I'm not sure why anybody interested in film making care about autofocus?
It depends what you shoot. What is unbearable is jittery shots. If you are able to shoot hand held and stabilize your shots, sure. A fast pace, urban modern story about drug dealers might be shot hand held. A piece about about a story happening in Versailles in the 17th century, I'm not so sure. Some genre and story are suited for hand held, others are not. And there is a difference between hand held with a GH5 hooked up to a Panasonic 12-35 version two and a hand held iphone.
Finally a filmmaker I can relate to!
And what about, for a change, stories with no guns and no killing? Do you think it's possible? Considering that most of us will never use a gun in real life, other than at a range, and that most of us will never kill anybody or witness any killing, I'm wondering, all those gun waving characters we see in movies, who can relate to them? I personally can't. I can relate to what I've seen in Gypsy and to Naomi Watts character, but I can't relate to any idiots in The Walking Dead. Yes, let's learn how to put guns in our stories, that'll make great stories.
