    With me, it has lost its novelty. The one above was the first one in quite some time that I've put together.
    Yeah, I kinda went on a tangent there that had not much to do with your post actually. I'd had a conversation earlier that day with an old friend of mine who used to do a lot of Hosemaster light painting photography and it turned into a typical "I don't know digital, therefore I hate digital" whine-fest from him. My points were still fresh in my head when I read this thread, and I apparently projected my internal rant.

    Canon being their typical retarded selves have been pulling this down when they find it, but it is pretty spiffy. Vincent Laforet's short film shot with the 1D mkIV "Nocturn" - all available light.

    Neat bit of film making. I kind of figured this might be the niche that Canon and Nikon were after when they started putting hi-def vid on their larger camera bodies.

    Personally, I don't think I'd use it much.

    According to Laforet, forget shooting anything producing good results hand-held. He used $20K worth of equipment for the movie (not counting the camera). Problems:

    1 - focus control - extremely hard to control/set/change in a way that looks natural. There are third party modules that will do that, but they cost big bucks (from $5K to $20K)
    2 - camera motion control - vibration/movement smoothing and reduction. You need to use shoulder mounts, jibs (cranes), dollies, rails, steady-cam, gyro's, etc.



    3 - accessories - monitors for video output, HDMI to SDI interface converters, dedicated microphones with a separate sound recording equipment , audio/video timing synch units, and ton of other stuff.

    That is really true for any motion picture camera system. The Canon 1D mkIV, Nikon D3s, Red One, Arri Arricam, Panavision Millennium. I wouldn't call them "problems," I would call them "realities." People like looking at a stable picture that is in focus.

    Hey guys, quick question. I'm heading to the game tonight and I'm curious how particular they are with cameras coming in to the building. Specifically, I'm wanting to bring [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Sigma-18-250mm-3-5-6-3-Canon-Digital/dp/B001PGXEH4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1256835983&sr =8-1"]this[/ame] in on my Canon. It's 4" and I know that's a little larger than they allow, so I wanted to see what your experiences have been with them before I find out the hard way.

    I think that making movies should be done with a movie camera. Although having the capacity to shoot short, high quality, Youtube-length snippets would be pretty cool. .

    I'm of the same line of thinking. I don't see a need, personally, for a vid cam as part of my still camera.

    SOOOO...

    :P

    That being said, I am thinking very very (very) hard about a new body. I've been doing a little side-work and requests for bigger things requiring more time-commitment (and more moola) are starting to trickle in, so my wife and I are talking about formally launching an event photog and portraiture biz (it's either that or start flipping houses...and honestly, I'd rather take pictures). If we decide to dive into this together, I'll need a second pro-level camera body. Because of its high-resolution, a new D3x may end up becoming my primary camera body for that purpose, backed-up by the "old" D3. I've also been thinking very hard about the 85mm f/1.4 and the 105 f/2 with defocus control for portrait lenses. The only other thing I'll need is a real lighting setup and some PocketWizards.

    It's still sort of up in the air right now, and if we decide to do it, the investment won't occur until after the first of the year, as that's when we'll be able to do it without using credit. Not looking to fill up every weekend with photog jobs, but this would be something wife and I could do together to earn a little extra coin.
