In Topic: Upgrading from Canon 5D Mark iii

Depends on how much you want to invest for the camera.

 

Personally, the cheapest option, which would give you the best in quality of footage is probably the Blackmagic Pocket camera: it allows you to shoot RAW, Pro Res,10bit,…, sure you’d learn so much in term of color grading, you could pair the camera with a metabones speedboster to reduce the 16mm crop factor and gain 1 stop. (It doesn’t have slow motion though, and it doens’t record more than 1080p). I think the Blackmagic micro cinema actually records slow motion, and it has all the features than the pocket has.

 

If you searching for something to shoot slow motion with (good camera also for photography), I personally really like the Sony a6500 (yet it records 8bit 4:2:0), and it's cheaper than the A7s II.

 

I haven’t tried the GH5, but never really liked the GH4. I don’t know, there’s something about that camera which I never really liked (even if people keep saying it’s got lots of better features than the sony a6500), but again this is just personal taste. 

 

Sony FS7 is great, but way more expensive. As Robin said, you could find a used one, which could be quit cheaper!

To compensate for the Speedbooster, I'd simply up the ISO on my meter by a stop.

Right, I didn't think about it. Thanks Mark!

Try to ask Aperture in London (http://apertureuk.com/). I know they have in-house repair service for film cameras and lenses so it's written in their website. I don't think they repair 8/16mm and such, but I’m sure if you write them they’ll know where to address you.


In Topic: Seperating colour with lighting

If it's a very low budget project I find it easier, just in term of rigging, the 2K to light the subject, than the kinos (and it's also easier to control, than something softer like the kinos are)

 

Once you do the blocking you could adjust the 2K so it lights the subject and you shape it accordinly. I guess it’s easier if you have a room enough big so that your subject isn’t too close to the background, since then it’d be harder to separate the colors.


In Topic: Review: Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera

Thanks Landon for sharing your feedback on the BPCC, I'm really that close to buy one, but still wondering between a Sony a6500 (what I like the most about it is the low-light sensibility and slow motion possibility) and the Pocket (what I like the most about it is video quality), and can't make up my mind haha!
