My only partial disagreement is with the last point, "Cinema crop: Choose a "cinematic aspect ratio," like 1.85:1 and 2.39:1."
If the camera can shoot full 4K, I'd go with the full frame and then crop down as needed to your final aspect ratio, especially if you need to do any stabilizing in post. I know that's a big "duh" kind of a thing to say, but it wasn't mentioned and "it needed sayin', pardner."
I think this might have been posted here at NFS before, but it's a video with Ramesh Raskar (nod to Thomas Hogben) that shows pulses light traveling through bottles and across fruit - the same thing you mentioned Thomas. (EDIT: But this isn't nearly as impressive - it's only ONE trillion frames per second, like molasses.)
I like what Bongo ties can do, but I've had the rubber snap too many times. I've mostly switched to using Matth-Ties for BNC and XLR cables and stingers (I use a clove hitch knot to keep them in place), and for pretty much everything else I use regular Velcro cable ties.
Correct - mostly. ; ) There are aftermarket mounts for Nikon and Canon EF. I bought a Nikon mount made by Wooden Camera.
"There is beauty in what is limited."
Very true. When I was starting out as a newspaper photographer, I carried only prime lenses. I had to think about what perspective I wanted and I had to choose the lens and my position. When I made the switch to zooms the quality of my work suffered. All I had to do for the framing was zoom in or out - I got lazy and it showed.
Thanks Guy and Joseph! I'm glad to know my investment hasn't suddenly been made obsolete. In fact, once I upgrade to higher-end lenses, I make keep the Rokinons for the character and as backups for any instances that might be hazardous to glass.
