    I think that's roughly it. Now at 0db if you put middle grey at 50IRE the camera is 400 ISO, if you put middle grey at 40IRE then it's around 540 ISO. From my personal testing, which is admittedly...

    I've been monkeying around with the raw output and of course I get no image (green fuzz actually) on the monitor but it does read as 3840X2160 10 bit. BM states that the Hyperdeck Studio Mini can...

    Funny, 3 days ago I got stuck at LAX for 10 hours after a gig cancelled in the 11th hour. I saw that book at Hudson and thought "Now there's a good title".

    If you look at all the specular reflections in the crowd there is a large source somewhere in the center of the room. The key is probably a spot on the mezzanine or catwalk. The beam looks wider...

    I don't think anyone here is questioning the quality of the CY lens but I don't think it would pair well with the 18-35mm, nor would it be a good replacement. If you want something classic/vintage...

    So your workflow is rough cut-mac, color-PC, final cut-mac? Why not just wait for the final cut and grade it in ProRes when it's done? I get that time is of the essence so you could take a few...

    3:1 is half the data rate of uncompressed (1.5:1) so I don't see why there would be a problem, but no, I've never used it for 60P 3:1. The only Sandisk I ever had a problem with was the 32GB and...
