Maybe Im biased, but to hear reviews from students blowing out the highlights on a cinema camera -- as a judgement of the camera-- is a really bad look for this community. IMO the image coming out of the Cion looks amazing. Yeah, it's a cinema camera if you are blowing out your sky you are exposing incorrectly. This is not broadcast... go film something in REC 709. When properly exposed this is destroying the thin look coming out of Sony Red and Panasonic, and BM in the the price range. I have been happily shooting on my Digital Bolex for the past 4 years-- and it's sadly being rented out for the next 6 weeks-- so I need something-- and nothing is giving me that thick cinematic look of the D16-- the Cion is close though.
