    For a few hundred bucks we all have access to gear that Kubrick and Leone would have loved to use as their Acams. Will we make anything half as good or just complain about specs and wait for the next big thing?

    What we talk about when it comes to tech really says more about us than it does the gear.

    You can tell a good story with a friggin iPhone if you've got the skills. Otherwise it just sounds like a lot of fan-boy bleating from people that want to rationalize their financial and emotional investment in the stuff they use. Or, they're too afraid to use something that's not the latest and greatest for some reason.

    Get your hands on something... anything...and create with it. Be productive. Yapping about sensor size when you got access to all these crazily good imaging devices, regardless of specs, is insane.

    thanks paul!

    I don't know if this is a re-post I found this link on another forum or somewhere, just comparing the digital cinema camera with canon mark II and III. I am guessing the dynamic range will be similar in the portable cinema camera.

  4. MFT has many available adapters you do loose aperture control. My Nikon lenses worked well but besides being difficult to focus I found they didn't perform all that better than dedicated MFT lenses. You can find adapters on Ebay for cheap but I would suggest spending money for a quality one as focus alignment is critical.

    The micro four thirds mount, is supposedly a highly convertible mount, the choice between the ef mount or the mft mount, what are people choosing? And also, does anyone have experience with converting lenses to mft, if so, what do you need to give up in terms of lense features, i.e. auto iris control, image stabilisation etc


  6. For this price you get 4:2:2 and 13 stops, combine with Lumix 12-35 2.8 and you are done :-)
    People look at final movie not the sensor size ...
