    Practically/comparatively it's not though; everything from sharpness and cleanliness to DR and colour is perceptibly improved by downscaling. It's a far more objective process, too. Besides, you...

    Was it my (non-HDR) display, or was it a decidedly desaturated and logish looking picture finish?

    Dug the movie, regardless. Just curious, as it was really washed out.
  3. LOL. Yeah we know, but the results didn't...

    LOL. Yeah we know, but the results didn't change, so the concerns/questions (about those top two reconstructed-stops and comparatively poor highlight performance because of them) remain.

    Don't get me wrong, NR should certainly be used when needed, but not relied on in order to merely achieve (or worse, artificially inflate) the advertised DR numbers of a digital cinema camera's raw...

    Thanks, Gunther. And yeah, I understand. The question was how you were measuring the 60% luma (external scopes [if so, by the file or a video feed], light meter)? End of the day, I don't think it...

    Maybe Gunther can answer that (I presume they used a light meter or scopes, as that'd be camera independent). The problem with changing the parameters to better suit one camera over the other is...

    LOL! Yeah, pretty much. Bare in mind, RED is the outlier though, as they have a high-end DR deficit at the recommended ISO compared to others.

    RED's recommended ISO seems to be whatever is the...

    This is the concern I'm talking about, and why I'm not totally convinced with 'the xyla was done wrong' claim either... Even if the charts are done wrong, the weak highlight performance (poorly...

    Does Blackshading help? They can change over time (which is why it's recommended as part of prep). Could be anything from temperature to altitude changes. Can you confirm that there are *more* or...

    But does any of that actually justify why the skintone highlight clipped after +1 (which, in their defence/coincidentally enough, corresponds with what their xyla results are showing, as faulty as...

    Seems a little odd that the test was done poorly, but only the RED succumbed to the problem of really poor above-mid-grey performance and false-positive recovered highlight stops (the top two stops...

    More interesting than the Komodo DR measurement (and something I can anecdotally confirm/have noticed with all REDs), is the "highlight recovery algorithm" being decidedly monochromatic (Graeme has...

    Dope! And to be fair 720p super35+/~16stops > 4k 1/8"/8stops (or whatever cellphones do) any day of the week. Does anyone know if you can punch in an IP as a video source for streaming apps (like...

    From the sounds of it, Komodo has a lot of that functionality built-in (e.g. streams a live feed to the camera’s IP address, which I presume can be viewed on any browser, including mobile). Still...

    Alex how are you feeding the SDI into the computer/OBS though? Or are you saying use the Hollyland just to go wireless and then feed it into something like the Aja U-tap?

    I’d really love for RED...

    Np. I forgot a couple tips/hints:

    With REDs (especially DSMC1 Dragon) depending on which OLPF is installed, your noise/ISO performance will vary significantly -- safe bets are STH = ISO400,...

    Just a heads up, that is a dummy mount, which means no electronics. So it'll pair well with your manual Contax, but any contemporary glass that only has electronic iris control (like Sigma ARTs,...

    I don't mean IPP2, I just mean RWG/Log3G10 for colour space/gamma. Epic-Dragon has both of them and Epic-MX has Log3G10 for gamma, but only has RC4 for colourspace (no RWG).

    It's very frustrating...

    Hey Penner, that's awesome! Can you elaborate on the conversion? (Is it a matter of disassembling the mount, removing the gate/frame, then dremeling away excess PCB?)

    Yeah, what Nick said. I think the Tiffen stuff can be bought more affordably in the form of threaded lens filters though (e.g. a 77mm 1/8th BPM is like a ~1/3rd the price of a 4x4). Also a lot of...

    Pretty sure the RED Creative LUTs do *not* include Tone Mapping/Highlight Roll-off, so you're going to have to select them to get the desired look. In FCPX, I think that means adding another LUT...

    I don't own/use one, but I'm thinking it wouldn't be all that useful. Not only will the RTX3080 do the majority of heavy lifting (presuming you're using an NLE that supports the latest RED SDK with...
