  1. And I'm sure it can be had for the low low price of $300K. LOL

    HD/SDI?

    Three of which will be manufactured by Canon, ironically enough.
  3. The RED camera has Dual HD-SDI output. So you should be able to view 444 1080P on set while recording 4K internally.
  4. I keep forgetting how frickin' hostile it is in these forums. The argumentative nature in which people post responses on these boards is amazing.
  5. The H1 only has one Lanc control port. Not sure if you can use a splitter between the two different controllers.
  6. While it would interesting to see how high-end 35mm prime lenses would look on the H1 it certainly won't affect DOF very much. It's not the lens itself, but a myriad of things that create that shallow DOF we all crave. A lens targeting a 1/3" sensor will only be able to use the center of the lens. So you'll have to go to great lengths to figure out what your focal lengths will or will not be.
  7. I've heard that you lose about 1.5 stops with the Mini35 adapter.
  8. We were rating the camera at 320 on our recent shoot.
  9. They recommend using the newer 400 series model. Apparently there were some screendoor issues with the other models on the H1.
  10. I posted this over at DVInfo and XLCinema. I thought I'd post it here too. We recently wrapped production on The Twenty-Third Letter trailer. We put the XLH1 through it's paces and in different production scenarios. I chose to show off Scene 10 because it has many different production qualities that hopefully many on these boards would find interesting. Low light. 3x SD lens on some shots. Jib arm shots. Special visual effects. Color correction. Etc. We also had a blast shooting this scene in downtown L.A. You can view the Quicktime versions here: The Starway Blog With a little luck I can offer WMV versions later today or tomorrow. There are some noticable compression artifacts introduced by H264. It's always a tradeoff between picture quality and file size.
  11. Everyone wants $100,000 performance out of $10,000. Come on guys.
  12. Oh please. "Not even good" and "noticeably reduced" is a bit dramatic, don't you think? And to whom? Someone shooting a resolution chart? Or someone shooting a real project? People who are actually using this camera to produce content are extremely happy with the quality and resolution of it's progressive image. Discovery Channel HD has approved the camera as a content producer for it's HD network.
  13. My "reality based" wishes are for a 20x Manual and the 6x Wide. I'd like a manual 6x. But that wouldn't be reality based. I wish P+S would finish their Mini35 update so it can be successfully used with the H1 before this Fall as I have a feature to shoot and would love a definitive 35 converter I can mount Zeiss and Cooke glass to.
  14. Well, it's refreshing to see to that a massive camera manufacturer such as Canon will take the time to visit a set and get valuable feedback from the actual folks using their products. Hooray for Canon. Now, let's get those mechanical and wide-angle lenses ASAP!
