    Hmmm, I've shot with this latency issue before and it just doesn't work for me.

    I suppose there might be a DI box with suitable output as a clunky solution.

    I think there are things we expect to give up from ‘proper’ cameras - EVF, ND, etc - but input monitoring shouldn’t be one.

    In the kinds of interview scenarios BMD show in their product images,...

    ^ This is really bad news for me. The main reason I didn’t buy the 4.6k (and went Canon) is because of audio monitoring latency. If you’re fortunate enough to shoot with a crew and off camera sound,...

    For a very low price, some well chosen M42 mount lenses with simple adaptor rings could work well. Gentle rendering of detail, manual de-clicked aputure (with lots of blades on preset lenses), long...

    Do you mean a mic to mount on top of the camera? Unless you're very close to the subject, I wouldn't recommend that. If you're operating solo for run-gun interviews, I would get a wired lav mic. Or...

    Looks good. The support I’ve imagined for these smaller cameras attaches to (or rests on) the belt. I’m tall and rarely shoot eye/shoulder level. I’ve seen a couple of cheap options that use a short...

    Probably not possible, but I would love to know if the headphone monitoring latency issue from the 4.6 K is there in the P4K.

    Thanks Frank. I forgot to mention... needs to fold and needs to be waaaay cheaper than a Magliner!
  9. Recommendations for folding equipment trolley?

    Hi all

    I’ve seen the Rock and Rollers. Are there any others to look out for? Something that will fit in an estate and can carry C stands and some gear in cases through door ways.

    Thanks

    ^ I’d love that. The front could have a couple of rod mounting points and speed booster platform. Maybe even a half-cage wrapping over the top.

    I understood that the ‘danger zone’ is when the camera is accessing the card - start-up, shut-down, switching between playback, etc. Not sure how this fits with BMD cameras or if it’s even really an...

    Advice - another shooter asking for credit

    Trivial dilemma... I shot a doc style project last year. I wasn't available to cover one of the days, so hired someone else to cover. His shots were fine, but only a few made it in. Perhaps 15...

  19. C stands - does this example look like a reasonable option?

    I imagine the general advice is 'don't save money on stands / buy a Matthews and be done with it', etc. But please could anyone experienced with C Stands cast an eye over this example and let me know...

    Here's a dull question, but is the front wheel 'context sensitive'? If we hit the ISO button, must we then use the touchscreen to select ISO, or is there another way to adjust with a hardware control?

    Rather sad. It's clear the new camera will be 'better' in so many ways, but I imagine it won't have that very characteristic image of the first.

    Boo... just heard the USB-C port will accept power, but not when the camera is on. This would have been a great, small, cheap power solution.
