  1. If the adapter doesn't change the crop factor at all, I suppose it should work. It would be a S35 lens on a S35 sensor, so yeah, probably. However I haven't tested this combination, so this is mostly a somewhat educated guess.
  2. Any autofocus updates? Many reviewers just mention that it's still beta, but apparently RED have included most EF lenses already, so I'm wondering how a Canon 16-35 or 24-70 would perform in terms of focus.
  3. Now the first Stormtrooper versions are being shipped and put through their paces.
  4. Latest rumors from Arri: A native 4K S35 sensor in a Alexa Mini (LF) form factor camera. So it's probably going to be more like a "Alexa Mini 4K", I guess.
  5. That's very true, the Amira will eat through your battery supply much more quickly than any other comparable run & gun setup. If you're running and gunning on your own, this is something to be very aware of.
  6. I've been using the Amira for a few years now and I have to say, every time I attach the Canon 17-120 and a Bebob 190 battery, my lower back aches in advance. 😄 Yes, it is a heavy setup, way heavier than any ENG camcorder or a FS7, even when properly balanced. Three hours shooting from the shoulder can be very hard on you. However, if I have the possibility to put on an EF mount and a 24-70, it becomes very manageable. So if your shoot allows it, it's very useful to strip the weight down to a minimum. Yes, the minimum is still heavier than other cameras, but other cameras can't take a beating quite as good as the Amira can. Or any ARRI for that matter.
  7. If I wanted to get greedy, personally, I'd love a faster and constant aperture. This T2.95 which falls off to a very sad T3.95 is just not enough for me. I've used the 17-120 on AMIRA a bunch and I had to increase ISO way too many times. I know it's a lot to ask for, but as I said, I'm just being greedy here. 😛
  8. And one more, this time diving more in-depth into the menu system of a RED.
  9. I'm hoping for a new CP.3 Superspeed lineup. It's somewhat affordable and could be the cleanest image you can get for the money, especially if T1.5 gets us a sweet spot at T1.8.
  10. Just watched the first look video on ProAV's YouTube channel and I have to say, I'm intrigued. It looks to be a real engineering feat and if Kinefinity can deliver on these promises, they will put a huge amount of pressure on competitors like RED. And this is exactly what excites me about the Mavo Edge. Personally, I don't see myself using a Kinefinity camera in the forseeable future, but the way they just outperform most of the competition makes me want to see what else will come up in the next few years.
  11. Another episode of the Solitary Series from James, this time focusing on the flexibility of REDCODE RAW and different compression ratios. Personally, I'm looking forward to the final episode on Reliability, in which Ty Evans fails to break an Epic Dragon... 😄
  12. I've worked with the very similar Canon 17-120 a bunch of times and it's a solid lens for fast-paced work, so now it seems we get that same outer housing with internals close to the ones from the phenomenal Canon 30-300. This could be exciting!
  13. Hello everyone, I'm Julien. I'm a german freelance camera operator since 2009, an insane gearhead and a long time Newsshooter reader, so I'm very much looking forward to enjoying talking with you about my favorite gear.
  14. Not exactly RED Solitary Series, but very similar to those videos and just as informative is this livestream with Jonathan from RED and Carl from ProAV:
