Good video. Thanks for that!
I stopped by the booth to check these out. I love the old 1510 cases but I keep easily exceeding the weight limit for carry on for international flights, so I was hoping these Air cases would solve that. They may be just as strong but they felt cheap to me, maybe cause I really love and am used to the density of polycarbonate or whatever it is of the old ones.
depends on what you shoot. Bmpcc sucks in lowlight. Crop factor is almost 3x. No slow motion. Not good for run and gun in my opinion. Need external monitor cause lcd is terrible resolution. Bad preaamps. Plus it's hard to match that with a 6D for two camera shoots. But at the end of the day, if you know how to use a BMPCC, its strengths and weaknesses, and for the right project and conditions....the images are beautiful...like a wild stallion you have to tame.
This is great and all, I'm all for new technology. I want to try this and this would be cool to play with as a consumer/vacation camera. But specifically for developing our craft and for work, is this going to make us lazy with our filmmaking? Think about restaurant that only sells their famous cheese pizza vs that 24-hr diner that has a billion things on the menu and everything is just mediocre...
Russell, I was going to say the same exact thing. R&D I'm sure costs considerable time and money, not to mention they still have bugs that they have to work out when users use the EVF on say new cameras that need support and for enhanced, upgraded features. At least in my experience with Zacuto's old EVF, they constantly had firmware updates.
I'm not defending that Zacuto's affordable, they even claim their HD is expensive, but saying something they made should be closer to $1000, it's hard for me to believe unless you're working in the company or you have a great deal of knowledge of manufacturing and R&D costs.
It's like a client telling you your dayrate is too expensive when they don't realize all the other crap that goes into it like prepping or grading or sound mixing...is kind of the same story.
Not to mention something electronic like this will last you several years across several different cameras.
Shouldn't this be obvious though?
It makes sense to me that the image quality is going to be the similar across all three lenses when shooting in the ballpark of f4-f8. Aside from extremes, Cheap EF lenses are made to resolve the high resolution of digital photography. We're still way behind on resolution for cinema compared to photography (even if we're about to go 8k Weapon), so why wouldn't cheap EF glass look just as good -- sharpness wise-- as ultra primes at those stops? Clarity/color are important, but in my opinion, are and have been more subtle to discern. Anyway, a necessary test, I just feel like really should be obvious because of what cheap EF glass was originally made for.
I think you're also paying for R&D for color matching across cine primes and zooms of a set too which, as I'm guessing, may not be easy to do or even cared about for cheaper glass.
