That's cool and everything, but I can give you 10 reasons to go to film school that are just as important.
It's almost like saying 10 reasons not to go to college in general...yea you don't have to go to college, but everybody and their mother has a B.A. nowadays.
Film School is more than knowledge it's about being able to show you are committed enough to stick with a school for 4 years.
Alexa with Master Primes....
Unless you have anything wider than that 18mm I'd recommend going with the 6d, although I don't believe you can use that lens on the 6d since it is aps-c (you would be better off selling the lens and getting an equivalent ef version.) You won't have to buy another adapter and there is always a huge advantage when you go with full frame over mft, I've seen footage from full frame dslr's that look sharper and better than mft 4k cameras. The gh4 is a heck of a camera but if you already have ef lenses just stick with the canon dslr's.
4k is overrated...The only thing I like about it is the ability to crop and stabilize without having to sacrifice too much resolution.
I hope this helps!
"Affordable"....they said under 5,000$ for a prime and I'm guessing it's going to be between 2,000$-4,000$ per prime. That kind of money for a 4/3 prime is ridiculous, I don't care if it's anamorphic. I can see people renting them but that's about it.
Great, too bad nobody is going to be able to afford it...
