So everyone here seems keen to embrace the cell phone for films. Okay.
But don't expect the cinema crew to ever take you seriously. And these are the people making films for a living by the way.

It's interesting how the actors gave it a certain intensity and realism that simply drew you in. I still think name actors are overpaid... but good actors certainly make all the difference.

It's over $300 a day to hire an Odyssey 7Q+ last time I checked... and the PIX240i is similarly priced. So I opted for the external recorder because I think lenses are easier ( and sometimes cheaper...

Yah, a lot of dirt cheap external recorders are showing up on ebay, but some of them are HDMI only. The Shogun looks good, but I've heard the Atomos screens crack easily and also I don't think the...

Okay, I see. But I meant accessories, which don't go down in price as much. Things like a good mattebox, follow focus gear, SxS cards, EVF, etc. Just the universal base plate I want ( Zacuto ) is...

I've never seen an F3 for under $4000 AU, so if you got yours for $1500 I hope it was in okay condition and not with a million hours on it. Also important to realize that the F3, like most other...

I've seen comparison tests with the F3 holding its own, and even edging out cameras such as the C300 and RED Epic on vimeo. Of course grading comes into it, and lighting as well, but it's a very...
