Gabriel. You're absolutely right, I have this feeling there will be a color High res viewfinder coming out in the next year or so and will have all of the features we want only it'll cost somewhere around 3 grand and we'll all complain about the cost...

Grayson, I'm not sure I follow you, it could have been the mini35 I was using (the 400 series) but I didn't have any trouble mounting the fu-1000 to the rig. The cable isn't any shorter then the stock cable and I know we had that mounted to the 35 with no issues. Which version are you using?

I'll add the thing we know will be included and that's embedded timecode and audio to the hd-sdi port. I would LOVE if they would throw in a native image flip (not jsut viewfinder) so that all of the fun adapters could be used with no issues, doesn't seem like it would be a big deal but then again I have no clue how that would be done. All of my sound guys have been complainging about the pickups for the xlr inputs, I'm not sure exactly what the issue is but whatever it is if they'd fix it that would be swell to.

What I'd like ot see them introduce is a new 35mm ef adapter that uses some sort of ground glass or something so that when you hook up the ef lenses you have control of your iris and lens but you don't have the 7.2x magnification. I know i'd buy one of those (and a whole set of L-series primes) in a second.
I have a dream that one day canon will release a 35mm ef to xl adapter and I'll have iris control and a 35mm dof of all my ef lenses, and it will be awesome...
