If it wasn't clear before from their recent moves in the DSLR space that Canon has all but left their DSLR video strategy for dead, this article provides pretty compelling evidence that the cries for better quality video and a richer video feature set have fallen on deaf ears.

I get that they're trying to push pros to their higher end, higher margin cinema cameras, but with all of the competition within the price range of their DSLR line, they may find a tougher and tougher time keeping their DSLR lines alive and competitive to a certain extent over the longer haul.


I generally hate lists like the 20 greatest or the 25 greatest ….

This list of the 25 greatest cinematographers in film history is no exception. While there's a lot I can get behind, there are, IMHO, some pretty obvious omissions.


Blackmagic Design has done some pretty ground breaking things in the past couple of years. In addition, they've managed to piss a lot of people off by promising much and screwing up the execution and delivery of both of their 2 and 4k cinema cameras.

If they do this one right, they'll basically have the world by the short and curlies, but I'm not holding my breath... This is the holy grail IMHO, amazing features, dynamic range, versatility AND modular design.
