Re: Gy-hm600 vs gy-hm850

Thanks Randy

The big issue is still the fact that the EVF is at the end of the camera and not on the side so you have to mount the 600 on the rig and it's entire length is extending out from your eye so that not a stable position at all. and you have to support the entire camera weight with your eye as the pivot point which makes it over front heavy. I certainly wouldn't like to have to support that all night!

Well actually that particular rig is designed to mount a anton/bauer or a Sony V-mount on the back to power your camera and light which would fix that issue. If it wasnt I would definatley agree.

Re: Gy-hm600 vs gy-hm850

I operate a 790 and 650 daily. I hate the 650, and hate the 790, but would love the 890. I want the chips and XAVC from the 650 with the glass and controls of the 790. I really really hate using the 650.
