It's amazing to see people loose their minds at the opportunity to shoot with (or own) anamorphic glass (especially zooms) that are as slow as T4 and beyond for $30,000 and up. And yet here we are with a nearly $5,000 cinema lens that has a series of fantastic, professional and convenient perks, but a majority posting here seem to be up in arms over the T-stop.
I wonder how many here would be okay with a client criticizing their cost for freelance or contract work similarly.
Is this a underlying proposal at film equipment prepped for legitimate warfare given the current tension across the globe?
"your cinematographer might not survive, but at least his footage will."
my point exactly. this is an exciting 2 min overview, but i'm left with the impression that it's going to be a film featuring 85% aerial cinematography, and i'd be more inclined to enjoy a story told at eye-level with the occassional bird-eye view. Otherwise it starts to feel like a video game (to me).
BMX videos often times look pretty intense, and yet.. tripod and handheld gets used just as well. vary it up a bit more, maybe?
this company clearly enjoys keeping their cameras on helicopters and drones.
