    The moral dilemma is yours to work out, but Iíll just say that the market for the camera is kind of like the market for a house, right now. I guarantee that you can sell it for more than you paid...

    And the picture in that three day old article from 2021 is the exact same one(just cropped) used in an article from 2019 that’s almost two years old.

    Someone was asking if the DSMC3...

    That picture is pretty old. If I recall it was floating around at least back in '19 or '20. I remember someone wanted to know about the handles and shoulder rig.

    I almost never load a brand new firmware version, much less a 'beta'. Even on my phone, I usually stay months behind. There's an old saying, "Pioneers get the arrows, settlers get the land".

    Anyone else find it ironic that they are throwing in a flash effect that looks like flash banding that would occur with a rolling shutter sensor?

    You’ve been pretty lucky. I used to get my shipments from them in two days(via free shipping option), but it seems like it takes at least that long before they even ship out, now(6 days to leave the...

    Just remember, you will have to power it. Not a big deal, and easy enough if you are running Gold or V-mounts and a plate with d-taps. There are tiny passive SDI splitters, but most are 3G.

    Because B&H is understaffed. Itís SOP now for even in-stock items to sometimes take several days to a week just to leave their warehouse, whereas pre-covid, in-stock items (almost always)shipped...

    Not trying to bring you down, but instead be a voice of reason. As many others across many boards have said before, including myself, buy a camera for what it can do today, not what is promised (or...

    Yes, we used to shoot 30fps back in the day, but only kinda-sorta-not-really. We were shooting 30 fps Interlaced, so we had two fields per frame, which gave us the motion cadence of 60 frames per...

    Since the "Covid Shutdown" last year, they have been anything but reliable. For years, they have been the gold standard, so to speak, for ease and speed. If I had my order placed before the late...

    No. The expander module does not have SDI out(although they are BNCís).

    Which Teradek? Most have a loop-out. But my recommendation would be to have a monitoring device(monitor of VF) that has a...

    You can probably file that one under “shoulda left well enough alone”, meaning you shouldn’t have canceled it, because now you will be waiting even longer(or could have possibly even had it already)....

    What was your deductible? Honestly, if it was me and something got broken or stolen and it was in the $1,000 ballpark, I wouldn't make a claim and have that on my "insurance record".

    The 12mm rod is really stupid.

    I think you can only use their components. But that motor is pretty strong. It seems to have more than enough power on my Canon CN-E’s, when I’ve tested them. I...

    Seamless paper is great, and what I prefer, because you don’t have to deal with wrinkles like with cloth screens, but it’s a PITA to transport, for obvious reasons. If I still did a lot of green...

    YMMV, but I ran some rough numbers several months ago before it released, and despite owning a ton of gear already, I think I was looking at somewhere around $10K-$12K minimum to put the Komodo into...
