    I think BMD is doing a wise thing here. Different cameras based on a common body. Very much like what Bolex did with their 16mm film cameras.

    But only when you use the Karfelons' copyright materials.

    It may be for some people (not really for what I need). I'm more concerned with being able to see 100% of the image, since there could be important things in the corners I do/don't want to see in the...

    I think it's a good start. I'd like the ability to hide the overlays, especially the camera button and still thumbnail in the lower right.

    My first problem with the app is that it burned through a...

    I can't see this either. The only thing I noticed was a spot on the floor itself that moved in and out of focus. You probably need to superimpose some kind of arrow or circle around what you're...

    It appears Lee Miller is no longer a source for BiWin cards.

    His website now states, "My partnership with BiWin has now finished. Many thanks to all those involved – I will seek fresh business...

    Here's my take on it. A bit more "matter-of-fact" but depends on what look you need. In any case, these demonstrate just how much wonderful information BMD cameras retain in the highlights.

    Yeah, it's a pain. The only way to manipulate Position keyframe curves are via the overlays in the viewer. There's a tiny little adjustment dot that appears between the current keyframe and its...

    I, too, have high praise for the Cineform codec. Have used it extensively since 2006 on all my PC-centric workflow and it's never let me down.

    Admittedly, I'm using the phrase "hard stops" as a shorthand for the whole manual focus issue, which covers essentially what you're saying. In a nutshell, it's about having a focus ring that provides...

    Actually, I did a quick search and the Cooke Varotal 20-100mm seems to sell used for around $5000-$6200. So, yes, that would be suitable. Image looks good from the couple of Russian posts I found on...

    That's another possibility, although PL lenses almost always come at a premium price unless you're lucky. Still, I do keep my eye out for deals there.

    Here are some other thoughts on the situation:

    - The Canon CN-E 18-80 -- It lacks hard focus stops because of autofocus, per a statement from a Canon. If only they gave it hard stops, it would be...

    Using a B4 2/3" lens with an adapter has been a consideration, but haven't been able to find a pairing in the price range.

    I should also note, for me, this lens would be for an URSA Mini 4K EF....
  15. And to give a better picture of what I'm after,...

    And to give a better picture of what I'm after, the Canon 18-80 and Sony lenses mentioned are the closest to ideal, particularly price. It's just that they frustratingly miss out on one key detail...
  16. It's close but still a bit too expensive IMO.

    It's close but still a bit too expensive IMO.
  17. The elusive "Unicorn Zoom" lens for EF mount

    I'm finding it a bit surprising and frustrating that, what I think would be a high-demand lens, is so elusive since no one seems to want to sell it. I call it the "Unicorn Zoom", and it would have...

    I got a Fotga DP500-III recently from Amazon, and have been very impressed by the quality. It's $260 in the US ($330 in Canada)

    I've been using a Cartoni Focus for about 9 years now and absolutely love it. The only issue I've had was with the button on the illuminated bubble level -- the Lexan sticker that covers the button...

    I'm still confused -- doesn't do what? (I don't know what it is you're seeing.)

    How are you coming to that conclusion? All you can see is the wheel being turned -- you can't see the gear or lens ring in that shot.

    Got one of those myself recently and can say the same. It's the best balance of quality and cost.

    URSA Mini 4K PL has also quietly disappeared. The only UM4K remaining is EF mount.

    I dunno... I just got the UM4K and have no regrets. The UMPro looks fantastic, but I could barely afford the UM4K, so there's no way I could have afforded the UMPro if I had waited.
