  1. You're kind of talking against yourself from the first post though. If cameras are data collectors, when just go with whatever. But I do understand and agree that it's not that simple. If you don't wanna be a young guy with a Blackmagic, you certainly don't wanna be a young guy with a Komodo. I would love to try out the Komodo myself, but for the most, it's lacking a couple of features that I hold dear on my Canon. And while we're on the C200, have you spent some time with the footage? I find it can take a good beating before breaking down. No matter where you end up, it's a great time to be a filmmaker. It sounds like you are leaning towards the Komodo. Go for it. From what I've seen, it's basically the same image as the Gemini. And I assume an Amira is out of the budget? If I could go Amira, I certainly would.
  2. As previously stated, it doesnt really matter as long as the camera doesn't get in your way. You should probably add FX6 to your list. It might not be as sexy as a Komodo, but it sure seems to be a real shooters camera. Also, there are great deals on Ursa Mini G2 and C200s. Both have incredible images when shooting raw.
  3. I highly doubt it as they never intended to operate in the lower price tier.
  4. I don't know what kind of content you shoot, but everyone and their mother are combining upper end cameras with all types of glass, including Canon L-series, Sigma 18-35 and primes, Xeen, Sigma Cine, Canon CN-E etc.. Don't worry about appearance as long as you like the image from the glass.
  5. Seriously? 4x5ks and 2x10ks to light up that little patch of grass? 😅
  6. Super weird if a rental house wont rent unless a huge studio is behind it. I mean, there can't be that many rental options left for them then on those specific cameras.
  7. Larger sensor and the ability to swap lenses. Also better dynamic range. Footage from the C100 looks a lot more cinematic than the XF300. I had the C100mk2, but have since upgraded to C200. Both are lovely cameras. The c100 codec is a joy because of the small files, while the C200 files are freaking huge.
  8. C100mk2 sounds like a better fit tbh.
  9. You don't want stabilization for handheld work, you want to make the camera as heavy as possible to get the shot naturally stable. Digital stabilization looks artificial.
  10. I'm gonna say natural light at the end of the tunnel, and just the handheld lamps for the warm light.
  11. Also, there is no ad revenue from a channel with less than 4000 subs.
  12. Get yourself a C200. Its pretty close to the Alexa in terms of color, and I honestly cant see what project you couldnt shoot with it. And the price is perfect for an owner operator. I just picked one up. 12 bit raw is lovely, and you can also convert directly to ProRes444 from the card to harddrive to save some space.
  13. Get some filters so you can daylight balance the Arris when needed. Just keep in mind you lose half the output when doing so. Also check out the Came-TV Boltzen LEDs. They seem to be a very good and cheaper alternative to Aputure, and they have a 150w LED. I really like to shoot with tungsten, but daylight is often needed.
