I was looking forward to this camera until I discovered it lacks physical audio trimming controls like the FS7, c300 MKII, etc. without going through at least 3 menu screens, or that the audio levels aren't even shown on the EVF overlays! (You do see it on the movable external data screen)
Sure at this price point, you're most likely doing dual system and your cam is jamsynced so audio doesn't matter as much...but for having that dual native iso feature, I was hoping the Varicam LT could function as a cinematic run and gun documentary camera or for small one man band corporate work.
Maybe Panasonic will add the audio overlays with a software update and find a way to map the audio controls to a physical dial on the body.
$5k for a photo T4.4 zoom with a servo, IS, and AF...Horrendous!!
$5k for a cine T4.4 zoom with a built in servo, IS, and AF...Amazing!!
If you don't understand the difference... you have some serious learning to do.
Later this month from Canon, "Join the professionals of the Canon Hollywood Professional Technology and Support Center for an exciting look at the new tools joining the Cinema EOS Product Line!"
Nice mix of old and new tech this year.
Yea trigger record should be up there in priorities...hopefully it's been fixed.
Also I'm hoping the Lexar 633x SD cards are supported, some reviews say the 1000x one isn't even supported? The new SmallHD D-Tap to Canon LP-E6 looks like a good accessory.
Considering that this will only be used for specialty shoots, they probably could've gotten away with the original price haha!
If you're concerned about it being 1080p or about the $20k price, you aren't the market it's catering too.
