I work as a producer and if some one in the crew says he cant do a job because he only got a AX100 to work with instead of an Epic, guess what I concider useless and might have to go, him or the camera
The rx10 is nice and I ordered the FZ1000 yesterday, but many will concider it totally useless for video due to the lack of SDOF
Me personally Ive stoped looking for the perfect camera a long time ago, I use different types for different jobs. I guess my FS100 is the closetst to an allrounder but still it will be left out from time to time.
And while we are on the subject of Aliazing, Did you whatch in full screen 1080p?
If not you of course see more than whats really there. I have a video about it on my new channel that might be of interest. Even 35mm film has aliasing if not wathed properly.
Thats simply something to live with these days. When you buy your rx10 or fz1000 and shoot a nice landscape some dude on the internet will watch it in high def on a small window and then comment that its the worst moire he has ever seen
You are right, it is not that bad if I watch it full-screen. So yes, one can use DSLR for videos, but pros who used them two years ago now have switched to proper cameras because they got tired to work around deficiencies of the DSLRs. At the same time, there are consumer cams on the market that are better than DSLRs for videos. The RX10 is expensive, about $1.2K, but the T4i is about $500, then say the F2.8-4 17-70mm Sigma lens is another $500, this lens is much better then the stock 18-55 F3.5-5.6, it is a great everyday lens, but expensive. Then I need say a 50mm F1.8 for low light and portraits and something with better reach, say 70-200mm or 70-300mm for long shots. So with only three lenses it is more money than the RX10.
With the RX10 I would not bother with replacing lenses, constant F2.8 is quite sensitive, the range is good enough, it shoots all the frame rates, and the image is better than on the DSLR. Yes, DOF is not that shallow, but this is OK, it is still better than on a 1/3-inch camcorder.
My only reservation against the RX10 right now is the RX100Mk3, which has 50 Mbit/s bitrate, I would rather prefer it to 28 Mbit/s.
You are right, no point to look for a perfect camera, a better one appears almost every month, but some are really better and some are really worse, and when the difference is so drastic one may ask whether it is worth to cope with something that just is not designed for certain work. I am not a shallow DOF whore, but I am not a 4K whore either, I want a good balance.
BTW, I liked your "tuner" video, I watched it completely. I think that movement was not always justified, but overall this is a nice piece.
The other nightstand video is great too. Simple and to the point. When I was watching this, I recalled this one: http://www.digitaljuice.com/djtv/detail.aspx?sid=144
