Thanks for getting the scoop on what looks like an interesting product.

I have to say that this piece is a classic example of when not to use a DSLR. Any ENG or pro palmcorder with a shotgun mic would have been a much better choice. Nice bokeh is not what you need here!

Cool product. Thanks guys.

Camera operator needs practice on how to film interviewer and product.

Sound; you may need a shotgun mic.

Apart from that, good job.

p.s. Check out Freshdv.com footage on same product. Your camera operator could pick up tips.

Its a nice thing but would I drop the money on it when canon may just release lens control ?

no way

the new 7d firmware “- Added code for upcoming remotes, accessories and lenses.”

(canon rumors)

I’m sorry, but this was really badly filmed! I had to stop watching because it was too irritating! It’s like the person behind the camera is so concerned with some technical aspect of the filming that they forgot about framing accordingly to the situation. Also, at moments it would have been much simpler to stand back a bit and frame both his face and the object (besides knowing when to tilt down). In a way it serves as a commentary to just how much we need products that actually confer some better stability and functionality to the HDSLRs, mostly for hand-held on the go stuff like this. In any case, nice interview, and nice effort on the part of Cinema5D – establishing itself as the most reliable place for anything HDSLR related. (I hope the person filming doesn’t get kicked on the butt, but instead just takes these as constructive criticisms and gets another chance).

What motors will it work with beside the M-One? I would imagine Heden motors works as well but what about Scorpio or Preston motors?

@ Presure: Brian Valente does say that they missed their $500 mark.

Great that you got the scoop, but *please* remember sound is really important! Could hardly hear it.
I know how everything is always a mad rush at trade shows [I’ve been shooting news video at them since 2003] and it’s easy to miss something, but sound should be number 1 priority. Ty a wireless Lav on the presenter, or even an over-the-ear proximity mic, but if you have to use that kind of stick mic, best get it close in.

Cheers,

Andy

Second that. First to bring the news, that’s good, but i’d like to keep that fresh new product in view while he’s pointing out and explaining stuff. Now let’s see how FreshDV does this.

This site is really starting to look more and more serious. I like seeing this. Nice interview. Lots of good pictures and info, although it’s way out of my price range. Thanks!
