I'm going to upgrade my camera and am considering between SonyA7SII or Black Magic; pertinent as these are now the two rival options in the market.
My filming is documentaries and the old fashioned style of Technicolor & Expressionist cinema: 30s-60s films. So I need the best cinematic/filmic look via the camera and good lenses followed by any necessary grading. And I do not have money for REDs or Arris.

Convergent Design Adds Dual-Stream to the Odyssey7Q and 7Q+

Convergent Design Odyssey7Q

Convergent Design’s Odyssey7Q and 7Q+ now include dual-stream functionality. Two SDI signals can be viewed at the same time, or a single SDI and one HDMI, with either input selectable for recording. This dual-stream HD monitoring ability comes courtesy of a firmware update, which also adds additional functionality to the monitor-recorders.

Hey everyone!

I'm looking to get some new gear to shoot walkthrough videos for real estate. I'm currently using a Nikon D5200 with a Glidecam XR200. I usually shoot with a Bower 8MM fisheye lens because of how tight the spaces can get indoors. So far i'm really disappointed with the video quality in low light on the D5200 and I find the video isn't as smooth as i'd like since the camera doesn't shoot 1080p at 60FPS.
