itsdimitri posted a topic in EquipmentThe title pretty much says it all. I'm trying to get some advice about the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera compared to a 7D or a 5D. I'm going to be using a field mixer to record audio, but with the SLR's I haven't really found an easy fix to that problem. With the Cinema Camera I can just use stereo inputs. I plan on using a 552 by Sound Devices. Are the audio inputs on the Cinema Camera good quality? I don't want to waste such nice preamps. How does the video quality compare between the two? The reason why I started looking into the Cinema Camera was to find a device that was easier to use than one of the SLR's and because it would hopefully solve my syncing issue. After all they are primarily meant for photography even though people use them for video and therefore even though they have the same settings as video cameras they are harder to get to. However, the Cinema Camera is quite a bit more expensive than even a used 5D so I just want to get some input on what users in particular think about both devices before I justify spending the extra money. Thanks a lot. You guys have already been super helpful answering my other questions. Dimitri
