    Best of luck with whatever you do Nick! Thanks for contributing, hope to see you around.

    85/1.2 is a bit sloppy in the handling i agree with.. slow as hell with autofocus.. min focus can be bummer at times. It also doesn't work on the BMCC right now which sucks. But the image really is gorgeous. I always forget until i shoot something with it. In some ways you could liken it to the BMCC, a few things make it a bit clunky to work around but the picture is so worth it.

    Wow Nick. Didn't expect to hear this. I have absolutely loved you stills and your incredible grades of other people's DNGs during the long wait for your BMCC. The way you are handling your sale and not rampantly profiteering is yet another mark of what a true gent you are/ Best of luck with your still photography and I really do hope that you get the occasional itch in the future to borrow / rent a BMCC and share your work witty the rest of us.

    I'm not the tallest fellow (5'9") haha. I sometimes have to tip toe to get that slight looking up angle! (which is where an apple box would be handy!)

    Yep, was thinking the same thing.....sometime later this year I will be producing a short film and was thinking of getting in touch with Nick to DP. Like your style !

    With the talk going on about flipping cameras, I feel like pointing out that Nick's willingness to sell at cost is a point of honor for me, and worth noting.

    Though some feel justified with "supply and demand, supply and demand," I can't help feeling that to go for a 33%-50% markup when cameras are scarce is a pretty sleazy thing to do. It's just scalping. It's illegal to do with gasoline or food during a hurricane or natural disaster, because people intuitively know it's wrong.

    What Nick's doing is the way to help a brother (or sister) out, and I wish more people had his attitude. Just my opinion; clearly, others feel differently.

    Good luck Nick!

    Very nicely done video btw, a shame the world's eyes loose a videographer like you - for now! I've seen so many horribly done videos with the BMC lately and still people were crazy about it - seems that in BMC-country the One-Eyed is king. You are a two-eyed!

    Thanks guys! I've still got the lens and the 2 SSDs left for those who were wondering if the camera's still there (camera and rig are pretty much sold).

    Here's me on Sunday doing a shoot for a band. Very simple, just ambient light and some improvising in an old quarry haha. I find it much more challenging when you can't use the light (soft and cloudy as it was) to change the image. You have to be creative!
