For the past years cinema5D has established the biggest forum on all things video DSLR, large sensor filmmaking and digital cinema cameras.
It was a very exciting time when I first started building the cinema5D forums. Back then most people weren’t interested in the video capabilities of DSLR’s, but a small number of filmmakers around the world realized that there’s great potential in being able to record video on a large sensor camera.
With the cinema5D forums I did my best to provide a platform that serves the community and is a place for serious discussions about HDSLR filmmaking.
It is time for the cinema5D forums to move on and receive the management they deserve, there are people who can do that better than me. So we’re changing our approach at cinema5D (more pon that HERE) and let the forum part of cinema5D go to planet5D.
planet5D, run by Mitch Augner, was among the first to create a resource on filmmaking with the Canon 5D mark II. His website has grown to be a regularly updated news blog on large sensor filmmaking. His website running skills and management capabilities are way superior over mine. You wouldn’t believe how many bugs were in the cinema5D forum software and server which I implemented over the years with my trial and error approach on programming. You might have noticed.
I believe Mitch will do a good job managing the forums. All user accounts remain intact and among them our moderators, who were working hard on new strategies and infra-structure for the forums.
Thanks for being a great international community,
Sebastian Wöber (cinema5D founder)
