    Panasonic Gh4

    I think it looks great, interested to see more images from it. Surely they could've made the module a little more ergonomic or compact? That thing is hideous.

    What Did You Do To/ Get For Your Camera Today?

    The Sony FS_00 cameras are fantastic spec wise. FullHD 50p, 240 FPS on the 700, metabones speedbooster giving you faster, full frame coverage. Blackmagics are great for final image output, raw and (at some point) 4k. What they don't give you however is the functionality. All of my work relies on working quickly and creatively. I use the FS100 ALOT, and even after knowing the camera backwards you simply can't operate it half as quickly. I did a speed test of the 5D mark iii and FS100 at a live event. I exposed for the stage (lecturn shot, high lit) and timed how long it took me to re-adjust both cameras to get a crowd reaction. Can't remember the timings exactly but the FS100 took nearly 10 times longer. I can operate a C_00 just as quick as a Canon DSLR now, they're that intuitive. Relatively speaking speed of operation beats any spec list for the work I do. So for these reasons it ruled out any Blackmagic or Sony camera. That left the consideration of the C100 or the C300. I wanted a better camera in-house, one that could replace my 5D mark iii as my main video camera, with decent audio. What I didn't want it to do was cost so much that I'd try and sell it on every job I take on just to pay it off, meaning I'd pick it over a hire of a camera better suited to that specific job. So for this the C100 made much more sense, I bought it outright and I won't feel bad if I need to hire in a better camera when required. And when you actually compare them, over twice as much for the C300 is overpriced. The codec and viewfinder are much better, but not over twice as good. With a recorder for the C100 you can close this gap considerably.

    Asking Some Lens Advice

    On the wide end, definitely go with the Tokina 11-16mm, no brainer. Then, personally I'd save for the Canon 17-55mm the 17-55mm will last you a long time, it's better built than the Sigma or Tamron respective. The focus throw is also much much better for video. The Tamron 17-50 and Sigma 17-50 have very poor, short focus rings for video. If it's really out of budget go with the Tamron. Then just a cheap prime for your lowlight stuff, 50mm f/1.8 is a great shout for this, although bad build quality. Maybe worth looking at a vitnage Nikkor in the same price range

    Blue Blur On Canon Fd Lens

    It's flare. It'll be the adaptor. Either it doesn't have flogged internals (shiny interior walls of adaptor refracting light like that). Or simply the addition of extra glass is causing it.

    Full Length Hd Video Export For Dvd Questions

    DVD is a very limited medium, it only likes one type of video format - MPEG-2. For the best results you want to convert to this straight from your timeline, to save dual conversions. I'd edit in a 720 ProRes timeline, then when you're ready to export, send the timeline to Compressor. In Compressor use the preset "DVD MPEG-2 Best for 90 minutes". The Video and Audio are separate so you have to apply both settings. Export using these settings then use the file in your DVD software (Encore, DVD studio pro etc..). It'll recognize the MPEG-2 and won't try and convert the file again. Then just export separately for web.
