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.

JVC Brings Slo-mo and more to 4KCAMs


JVC is bringing a wealth of new features to the GY-HM200 and GM-HM170 4KCAM recorders, both of which have seen recent price cuts with the GY-HM200 being lowered in price through a $500 instant rebate that changes its retail to $2,495, and the GY-HM170 now retailing at $1,995. Both fixed lens models will be gaining a new slow motion recording mode that will allow for 120 fps to be shot in HD resolution.

Vizio Reference Series HDR Displays Aim to Redefine the Color Space


The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood saw a guest unlike any previously seen: the 120-inch 4K Ultra HD Reference Series HDR display with Dolby Vision support. On display in the “HDR Lounge,” this and the 65-inch model were not just being presented, but provided demonstrations as to the changes brought on by new technologies, redefining the level of picture quality now available for home viewing.

LEICA goes 4K with the LEICA SL


In a bid to combine state of the art technology with a feature-rich set — and coincidentally further the brand name — the Leica SL now makes it debut. The mirrorless camera has a 24-megapixel full frame sensor and is able to handle 11 fps (frames per second) shooting bursts. It eschews the use of physical controls, instead relying on a touch-screen. The 2.95-inch EVF (electronic viewfinder) possesses 4 million dots (4MP), making for a detailed view of whatever the camera is aimed at. To provide for a more rugged construction, the all aluminum body has been weather sealed.

Hi all,

I work at a digital media and marketing studio and we've been discussing how to price a project. It's a video project that will have a very fast turnaround. Some of the details:

-1-2 minutes long
-two versions, French and English
-lower thirds motion graphics
-we will need to be onsite for a 3-4 hour event to record footage, then have the video edited, graphics added, etc. and exported + delivered 4-5 hours after that

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.

Panasonic GH4 for shooting video is gonna be my new my camera very soon. I'm wondering what I should do about the lenses...
Should I buy a new one like Olympus 12-40mm 2.8 or buy a Metabones and use my Sigma 17-50 2.8?
I've been watching at some videos in youtube/vimeo and I really have the feeling that Sigma is not sharp enough... am I right? Any opinions about that?
