Crew Talk Webcast Series

Recommended Posts

Join us every Wednesday @ 4pm PT for our Crew Talk webcast series where we discuss various video & film industry related topics.

Next week we will be exploring the topic of acting in movies vs commercial projects. We’ll answer the questions of how to get paid acting gigs, how to secure an agent or be in a talent agency and what to expect in your career as an actor. We’ll also focus on the demands and perks of the different types of projects actors typically do including narrative, commercial, corporate, etc…Sarah will be interviewing 5 talented actors to gain their insight on working in both industries.

If you're interested here's a link to our calendar: https://www.meetup.com/shoots-video/events/

Look forward to virtually meeting you!

    • Does the C70 have punch-in focus magnification during recording?
    • And just a comment on the ergonomics of the camera. It's incredibly chunky, so I wonder how comfortable it'll be to hold for any length of time, especially for those with small hands. More so if using the flip screen and trying to access the side buttons. One other thing is that some people will want a cage for this camera and with all the buttons, flip out screen, air intake etc, I think cage manufacturers are going to have an interesting time making a functional cage for this camera. Of note is that with just about every camera released so far, cage manufacturers have released a cage design just a few days after the camera has been formally released. I couldn't find anything for the C70.
    • I don't think you read what I wrote, so I'll try and make things a little clearer: - A single Canon LP-E6N (rated at 14Wh) gives me 52min recording time, so 3 x LP-E6N (42Wh) would give me 156min recording time. - One IDX NP-F970 (rated at 48Wh) gives me 188min recording time. - A single LP-E6N (in-camera) and one IDX NP-F (on-camera) gives me a total of four hours recording time (and it's hot swappable). - One BP-A30 (rated at 45Wh) gives the C70, as you say, 175min of recording time (and doesn't look hot swappable). As far as recording time goes and battery life, this is close enough to an apples with apples comparison. I have no idea what power draw difference there are when it comes to BRAW and whatever format the C70 is using for 4K, but someone might have an idea. I raised the issue because even now in one of the C70 YouTube reviews, the BMPCC4K is bagged for poor battery life while the C70 praised on its battery life. The BMPCC4K will ostensibly run for just as long as the C70 with the same capacity batteries. I should have added that you are looking at the batteries based on MAh, not Wh. The NP-F batteries are 7.2V while the BP-A batteries are 14.4V. You have to convert each battery to its Wh capacity. Why do you think all V-mount batteries are rated at Wh, not MAh?
    • I have looked at cloud based options myself too and have largely concluded it's still more cost effective to manage your own backups on local drives, and of course much easier should you need to access something from the archive. A friend of mine does use Dropbox with unlimited storage (costing around £450/year), though he initially had problems getting them to honour the 'unlimited' part. I looked into Google Drive before too, but I think even though they have unlimited storage with the 5 users I'm fairly sure they still charge you per GB/month don't they? Then Backblaze has the 30 day thing which is a bit of a pain. I'm considering getting a NAS that powers itself on and off daily for this purpose though, then even if I went away for a few months the backup should still be operational.
    • Does Canon C70 have an OLPF filter on it?
