    You summed it up perfectly for yourself. Gemini is your best bet. Less crop, can handle a broader range of light environments. It's still plenty sharp.

    Can't go wrong

    I have and love both, as well. The Gemini is more versatile. With the LL mode and less of a crop factor at high speeds, it's a better all-around camera. But the Helium image is spectacular.

    I...

    There are a dozen recalcitrant DPs keeping film on life support. Were they to shoot on a RED or Alexa, nobody would know the difference, and their already amazing lighting and composition choices...

    We're comparing field of view and depth of field. All focal length fields of view are measured by using FF35mm as the baseline. The Speedmount, with cine lenses, provides a field of view and depth of...

  7. Speedmount on a Helium review!

    I've had one for a few weeks now, and I've put together a fairly comprehensive test video where I compare it to a Gemini and a Sony FS5 with speedbooster to examine the difference in FOV, sharpness,...

    I only use RED electronic accessories (I only use 3rd party stuff for dumb accessories like mounts and handles) on my Helium and Gemini. They've quite literally been through hell and back and I...

    Preeeeeeeeeecisely. I'm not sure why we are all pretending that every job we do is a tentpole feature film shooting on Master Primes. Jib and steadi ops at music festivals, documentary work,...

    If you can bring yourself to embrace FCPX, you'll be happy. It dynamically throttles the debayer on playback, and the quality is fine for viewing. You can do good color grades. You can view full...

    This is so weird...curious what platform you guys are using. My 2013 trash can (not maxed out) doesn't have much trouble with 8K. Just did a test: 8K raw with a multi-layer color grade applied, took...

    Strange. I'm cutting a feature shot on Helium and Gemini. No problems with 8K on my trash can in FCPX. Looks like it's doing a 1/4 or 1/8 debayer, which looks perfectly fine in my small edit window....

    -At this point, the Ranger version of the Gemini is so cheap, it's actually more cost effective to just get that rather than kit out a DSMC2 base. Then you'd have a powered XLR port in camera, and...

    The audio on the DSMC2 cameras is surprisingly decent. WAY better than Epic. I'd still have a zoom recorder or something if high quality audio is very important to you.

    Here's some perspective I can offer. I film wildfires...it's a very dynamic, hazardous, and unpredictable environment. For the past few years I've relied on the Sony FS5 with an Odyssey. Served me...

    Boy oh boy are we spoiled. Both of those images look pretty amazing lolol.

    General rules for Gemini:
    -LL mode will reduce your DR a bit. If you're going to be at 800ISO, you should just be in...
