Let me guess: I can turn the camera on remotely, yes?
For example, now anyone with $1k investment in Resolve has the same technology, as the Company 3. Of coarse, it doesn't mean, that results are the same.
Scarlet will be the first truly disruptive camera, not Epic.
Don't really care for a virtual focus pulling technology. Feels more like a gimmick to me, than anything really useful in practice.
But I can see in a few years many live action films just capturing basic exposure and the rest of the lighting will be done in post. Virtual DP anyone?
Based on my experience, I think there will be a time that the awards for best cinematography will need to be shared between DP and Colorist (in some cases, the colorist does so much re-framing, add/substract light, etc that you wander who really should get it)...
As much as I can appreciate film, its costly and time consuming.
I feel some of the best Colorist have previous experience in lighting/DP work or knowledge of both.
I come from Theater (Actor/Director/Writer) you can call that a dead medium, I've done shows with more people on stage than in the audience, LOL.
I still do it, cause I love it.
But honestly not that many people care about theater any more.
I also prefer live instruments and wax DJ's. But Resolve is pretty Damn Sick!
Like it or Not.
It Truly is a Revolution.
Gees guys. I'm wearing a hole in the edge of my seat here.
this is the kinda thing I want and I love. technology that solves problems. I think lots of companies are creating cameras that are trying to measure up to how things were done the last 100 years. but very few are creating cameras that will push ahead for the next 100 years. make every day problems that cause time/money and image quality issues and you'll have an on going client base forever. Im not interested in how its always been done if there is a way to make it better , easier , faster. anything that allows story tellers to focus on the story , acting , the lighting
