DP / Filmmaker
How do you downvote FACTS. Go to DJI.com if you don’t believe someone who has owned a Phantom 4 Pro since launch day as well as the Phantom 4 preceding it. After all, wouldn’t you like to be given the correct info?
Oh sick! they copied the design of the Duzi 4 to improve their slider... good on ya :)
not quite... the P4P did the exact same thing h.265 & h.264 @100mbps. The statement is only true if you are going from a Phantom 3 or Phantom 4 (non pro)
Sooo.... the new Phantom 4 Pro V2 is now capable of 100mbps h.265... which is a huge step up from the video quality of my current Phantom 4 Pro which only clocks in at a modest 100mbps h.265 & 100mbps h.264? It seems you're information would be correct if you framed it in terms of upgrading from a Phantom 4, but even so it's not "new for 2.0" it's carried over from the original Phantom 4 Pro.
@NFS, wouldn't a more appropriate title for this article be, "Why the hell are filmmakers still paying any attention to Canon?"
Haha, in all honesty... this is a company who got lucky off the 5D and just DOES NOT GET US! Nor do they care about "us" (filmmakers). If that's not clear to you yet & your still expecting something worthwhile from the Canon-Camp, maybe you should write for a photography blog.
Canon is dead in my eyes and I have over $10k in EF glass, so it's not like I wasn't pulling for them, but I knew the score back when the 7DII first dropped.
These guys have no interest in catering to filmmakers via DSLR. They would rather you spend 5x more cash to buy one of their plastic Documentary-Cameras.
When they release a 6DII in 2017 with no 4K, it's lights out.
Blah blah blah...
This is one of the most competitive fields in existence. Being a man does not guarantee you anything in this business. It's all about the hustle and your talent. You show me an incredibly hardworking and talented Female DP or Director, and I'll show you a female that is fielding offers daily.
Talent and drive cannot be denied, but to think the stats are so skewed in favor of one gender simply based on the gender alone is a laughable misconception.
As more women take interest in these positions, we will see more women in them. Simple as that.
The goal should always be to assemble the best crew for the job and to produce a product that tells the story in the best way while sacrificing as little integrity as possible. That can happen with any gender or race at the helm.
To insinuate an all-female crew or some form of reverse sexism is what hollywood needs is simply reverse sexism and does nothing but fuel a fire that need not burn. It's not about a shift in the exclusivity, but rather a broader mentality of inclusivity without restriction.
On the flip side, I could offer you an example of an incredibly attractive young Female DP who's work is pretty much garbage with a film grain, yet she has an IG following of 25k+ people and gets to work regularly due to her advantageous "assets"... it's not fair that she overshadows better qualified peers, but it's life and other than pointing it out in this relevant situation, I don't even care enough to complain.
Just worry about you. Don't concern yourself with "the way it's been" or "gender percentages on crews"... the shift has already occurred and droning on about it does nothing to progress your agenda. Proactive steps while wearing blinders however, can and will make a difference.
