I was never a fan of the XC10 and to be honest I don’t think the new XC15 priced at $2400 is going to do it for me either but hey this just might be the B-cam you’ve always wanted. For me the big issue is the lens and it’s variable f-stop zoom. Shooting video […]

Interesting news from Canon this morning. A new development of a CMOS Global Shutter Sensor. Don’t get to excited because this is the first stage of the sensor and probably won’t be in a camera for at least a year but as you read the press release it states that they have also been able […]

The Canon 5D MKIV Isn’t a Video Camera. Surprise! Or maybe not

August 25, 20162 Comments

For a while know I’ve been having discussions with my fellow camera geeks and DP’s about the new Canon 5D MKIV and the first thing I say is “it’s not a video camera. It’s a pro DSLR that shoots video”. That’s it. Canon doesn’t want it to be like a Sony A7s ii or A7r […]

April 13, 20160 Comments

This is the lens I have wanted for a long time. The new Canon COMPACT-SERVO 18-80mm T4.4 EF-mount lens is basically like the 24-105 lens but in S35. That’s a very good range for me. I use the 24-105 a lot with the C300 and the FS7 with an adapter. F4 or T4.4 hasn’t been an […]
