aombk: Why not?
16:48
troy_s
Likely speaks more to the target demographic than say, a Nikon.
16:48
troy_s
se6astian|away: Excellent looking progress on the Gamma renders.
16:49
troy_s
I take it the smaller round disk is the low pass filter?
16:55
troy_s
My gut concern would be cables out the side, which seems problematic.
16:57
intracube
troy_s: ^ how so?
16:58
troy_s
Because your left to right tolerances are extremely small in heads etc. Think tilt.
16:58
troy_s
So any transmitters etc, would be forcing a coaxial bend to mount somewhere else on the camera. Likely easier out rear.
16:58
intracube
ah right. maybe 90° BNC connectors would be low profile enough
16:59
troy_s
Well there is another issue in that the right side of the camera is an assistant's domain.
16:59
troy_s
Remember that in a handheld or fluid head based operation, the EVF / viewfinder is typically on the left for right side shoulder etc.
17:00
troy_s
As in _all_ accessories tend to err that way.
17:00
intracube
right
17:00
troy_s
Which typically leaves the right side the domain of interfaces and readouts for the assist.
17:01
intracube
connectors at the back wouldn't break the current modular concept
17:01
troy_s
(And also where an assist would typically stand when follow focus work was required)
17:01
intracube
just all the I/O stuff would have to be last in the stack
17:01
troy_s
Yes.
17:02
troy_s
And of course, the lovely previs is missing mount holes, which are absolutely critical unless one expects secondary cages to be manufactured.
17:03
troy_s
(If you want to see how ghastly aftermarket cages bulk up the overall mess, have a look at the DSLR or BMCC or even R3D cages end up.
17:03
intracube
has recently been looking at DSLR cages
17:03
troy_s
R3D basically ends up with an exo-cage that has a multitude of mount holes on the top plate.
17:03
intracube
some folks rigs have horrible ergonomics
17:03
troy_s
DSLR is a dead form factor for cinema work. Many peeps are simply tired of the damn things.
17:04
troy_s
Yep.
17:04
intracube
not properly balancing on the shoulder. front having to be held up by your arms, etc
17:04
troy_s
The Arri handle plate seems to be one of the more well thought out pieces.
17:04
troy_s
DSLR forms are flawed by design here.
17:05
troy_s
And you cannot escape it. It is just god awful design when they choose to lean that way.
17:05
troy_s
Anyways... The previs looks fantastic. Great discussion entry point.
17:06
troy_s
Gives an actual thing to begin discussions on that isn't fictional guesswork.
17:06
troy_s
Not sure if the body is going to have an interface?
17:17
intracube
one thing I don't remember seeing for the Gamma is where the standard controls will go
