The one thing any “doc jock” might want but not have is an IDA membership. And then... camera bags, drones, viewfinders. One semi-original idea and then straight to slingin’ gear?
“Serious purchases are something we pour over reviews and comparisons for days one end, so asking Uncle Morty to go through that is out of the question.”
Oh, never mind, now I get it.
This sounds like a cool documentary. I’ve heard one or two of these Bill Murray stories written up online over the years, and they were fun to read. But what I couldn’t figure out from this interview (which, a great portion of the time didn’t make any sense at all to me, lol) or from watching the trailer, is, Did Bill Murray want these stories all “lassoed” together and given an “editorial opinion”?
If so, great. But it seems like part of what makes these stories so cool is that no one had put “a big bubble around them.” Leslie Stahl hadn’t done a huge 60 Minutes prime time newsmagazine piece— partly because I thought Murray wanted these things to simply be little adventures or “secrets” (that’d inevitably get shared of course— but not in a commercial way).
Great interview. It’s awesome to hear this behind the scenes exchange with the directors. I’m looking forward to watching this even more now.
Adobe might be a bit more concerned about how they’re going to get their software to run on Apple’s new proprietary Mac CPU’s starting in 2020. lol (This template sounds like a good idea, though.)
I don’t think I’d shoot a live event with the a7 cameras— I’d prefer a video camera with a live Ethernet or WiFi output.
For “production” I’m sure there’s a situation where this makes sense, but I can’t quite think of one, especially since this camera doesn’t record in 4K, and even more, because the “look” from its small sensor would be so different from video captured on a 35mm FF sensor.
Maybe tutorial videos or instructional videos— but in that case the GoPro 6 at $399 seems like a much better option.
Maybe version 2 will make more sense to its general audience.
The FS7 II doesn’t record raw internally. Like the FS7, you add the $2,000 adapter, then you can record in raw with an Atomos or Convergent Design monitor/recorder.
Regardless, this camera is a complete mess, IMO. The 50 to 100 people that bought the first C700 are either going to be angry, or happy, given what this new sensor can (and can’t) do.
What does “full frame” mean to y’all at NoFilmSchol? Because, to many of us, it means 35mm (135) at a 3:2 aspect ratio— which gives you the ability to shoot “full frame” with anamorphic lenses, etc. The Sony Venice, at roughly the same price, makes this school bus of a camera look like a bit dumb. I’m sure Canon has a target market in mind with this product (that’s what Canon is good at— designing by committee) but I can’t picture this fitting in anywhere with its proprietary everything, and no (or little) 3rd party support. I’m not the biggest RED fanboy, in fact I wouldn’t shoot with RED given the option, but RED does raw well, it has loads of support for raw, and it comes in at about the same price. If Canon can’t even beat out RED at pricing, I don’t know what kind of value they’re adding.
How is this relevant news for your NoFilmSchool audience? If you gained some focus and expertise in the audience you claim to serve, you wouldn’t have to throw everything at the wall and hope it sticks...
