Yea but will it give me the same disappointed look that a real editor does when I haven't got enough coverage? I live for that burn.
If you're filming wildlife/nature then a 4K rig will benefit you because of the extra detail you'll be able to get. Initially you need to decide if an all-in-one solution or a DSLR with lenses will fit into your style better. I would recommend the latter if you intend to concentrate on cinematography since all-in-ones are built to capture fast and often have less cinematic sensors. Have you considered a GH4 with something like a 12-35mm lens? This would give you amazing sharpness and a very wide angle for nature filming. You could easily get a converter to use your nikon lenses as well. Hope this helps :)
This is great news. Such a good oportunity for people to get into aerial cinematography. Bet folks do great things with it.
Don't hate CGI, hate lazy "fix it in post" filmmaking
My apologies, when i said the "real deal" I was referring to the Canon, Zeiss and Schneider lens that are mentioned in the article as the range to which this competes not the lenses you said which obviously cost a lot more.
I fear there is some confusion between "cheaper than competitors" and "affordable" here. I'm relatively certain that 95% on this site would class spending more than $1500 on a lens to be unaffordable. I have a full set of the Samyang cineprimes and they're utterly amazing for the price but this will only alienate buyers, if you have this kind of money you are going to go for the real deal not the knockoff. I agree with the other posts as well, if a company came out with true anamorphic lenses that cost less than $750 then they'd made a fortune overnight.
