    Still have 4 of the classic cheese graters, but only fire up 2 on a regular basis. The lead rig has a 980Ti and a RR-X which makes it fine for most workflows. Salivating over the 7,1 2019 MP but no...

    For a number of reasons, not the least of which is all the great S35 lenses to choose from, I consider Super35 the sweet spot for narrative production. From a creative perspective, I find VV more...

    Not an expert on controlling pandemics. That said, I struggle to see a strategy that doesn't start with widespread testing capacity. All due respect to those who are trying to get a handle on this...

    RU without Ketch Rossi????????

    FWIW, any online community is going to attract wide range of personalities. Overall, RedUser has maintained a collegial tone - which I would consider an accomplishment.

    I hope you reconsider...

    Kudos to Gunleik for his generous offer. The self isolation mandated by the virus may physically divide us, but we must not stop sharing the load with our brothers and sisters around the world.

    FWIW, if Monstro is an option, it's not even a debate.

    If you have a particular clientele with known requirements, then pick the camera that best caters to that production style.

    Test, test, test

    Love your enthusiasm Ketch. Putting together small groups and isolating the group from the rest of the world is likely to be how productions get back to shooting. If we actually had easy availability...

    I think it was actually $1,000 rather than $500. IAC, in April of 2006, IIRC, the Dalsa was the only 4K digital motion camera on the block and it had to be tethered to a RAID for recording.

    Cheers...

    Fine, I'll show you crazy. Take the Canon 50-1,000 Cine zoom, clamp the monitor to the matte box, screw/bolt the shoulder pad to the lens support foot and the Komodo can hang off the back of the lens...

    I was smiling when reading Phil's notes about the Otus 55 and Sigma 40 - couldn't agree more.

    NAB has been a dead man walking for at least 2 weeks. I just hope things resolve enough for CineGear to happen in June.

    Sony has been the king of digital signal processing tech for decades. IMO, they've dug a bit too deep into that well sometimes and created more issues than they're solving. Most apparent is their...

    According to Sigma, the CINE line uses the same optical formula as the Art series. Having shot with both on the same project, I see no reason to doubt them. The cine style housing enables the use of...

    I would note that part of the disconnect might be the way most projects are budgeted. Production is typically expected to capture a lot of material in a short time as cheaply as they can. A more...

    The Otus lenses are fantastic, some of my favorite Monstro shots were with the 55. Came very close to buying a set.

    My guess would be fixed RF mounts for base price Komodos. If custom mounts are offered, I'd expect a mark up that covers their cost plus normal profits.

    As Phil notes, the short FFD of the RF...

    I can see a scenario where NAB is "staged" for an online audience. I would assume that the venue fees are already committed and most of the exhibition costs already sunk. Perhaps a more manageable...
