I got a Forza 60B recently and the fan is UNBELIEVABLY loud for such a small light. If they haven't fixed that for the rbg model it's gonna be a tough sell for me...
"Apologists" is the right word. I know that if a scene is too dark, or the dialogue is buried in the sound mix, or every other shot is out of focus because they were shooting wide open on an Alexa LF, or whatever other trend is popular, it's because that's how the filmmakers wanted it. That doesn't mean I have to agree they made the right choice, and refrain from criticizing decisions that hurt my enjoyment of the film.
If I'm paying to watch your movie and can't see a thing in half the scenes, I have a right to be upset about that.
I'd rather have a super 35 sensor in a camera with great ergonomics than a full frame sensor in an overgrown mirrorless body any day of the week personally
Wonder what this means for their cinema cameras moving forward.
If they aren't making any more EF lenses, I doubt the next C300, C200, C500 etc models will be EF mount. If they commit completely to RF mount it would be interesting. The C70 might have been a trial run before going all the way with the next generation.
It's not just the look, the ergonomics just seem really weird and poorly thought-out. Who designs a camera that all but requires an external brick battery, then fills the entire back of the body with a massive touchscreen that can't be relocated and is crucial to controlling most of the settings? There's nowhere good to put the battery now because you'll be blocking the screen.
I have never, not once, seen a BM Pocket rig with an external battery that looked convenient to use. The battery is either a mile away from the camera throwing off the balance or you're peeking down into a crack to see the screen and get to the controls.
I'm not sure that guns specifically are the problem or that banning them is the solution.
43 people have died on film sets since 1990 and only three of those deaths were gun related. To me, that's not a gun problem, it's a general safety problem. And it's not that these things *can't* be done safely, it's that when time or money is tight, they *aren't* done safely.
Whether it's a gunfight or a motorcycle chase, there's probably a way to do it safely, if you're willing to spend the time and money to let the professionals do their jobs. If not, you should not include those elements in your film, or just do them with CGI and hope nobody cares that it looks a little off.
