OhMyGodOhMyGodOhMyGodOhMyGod!!

OK, now that I’ve had my teenage girl freak out moment, let me just say how much I love this post.  Here is a man who understands the tech behind cameras, and he uses that knowledge to point out why he likes the C300.  This should be required reading for internet forum schmoes that lurk and promote their camera agendas based purely on numbers.  Unless you have unlimited funds, every camera is a compromise.  An end quote:

     “….Of course you will be able to find a camera with a greater dynamic range (Alexa)

Of course you will be able to find a camera that shoots 5K resolution at 96fps (Epic)

Of course you will be able to find a camera with 10-bit, 4:4:4 outputs (Sony F3 with the S-log package, and with an external recorder)

But if you don’t have endless sources of money, time, and manpower, and you want to choose the best camera for your jobs/projects, then you won’t choose the mathematically best camera. If you’re looking at the whole picture – not just the camera itself, but the prices of the accessories, media, lenses, and also check the prices of storing, processing the recorded footage – , you will choose the camera that fits in your workflow perfectly, and gets the job done as good as you can….”
