    A limited number of films? IMAX could have a majority share of cinema audiences. It's a gold mine. Most people simply cannot get this experience at home.

    I'm talking about JP2K or HEIF. All web browsers can read JP2K. I mean, for goodness sakes, we should have dispensed with JPEG 10 years ago.

    11.6 stops isn't too bad, if the trade-off is a global shutter. I guess it's the How, not the What.

    I keep saying that the future of cinema is IMAX. Instead of spending $100M on some superhero...

    Who the hell made those JPEGs? They are awful. The DNGs, even just opened in Preview, are lovely. I exported my own JPEG from Preview and it looks exactly the same. I don't know if there is 9K worth...

    The global shutter sounds awesome. 14 stops is also damned good. However, I would think that even a cropped Monstro would be terrific for IMAX. Not that you'd say not to more resolution, of course....

    I agree with those who say that you should rent until you have more cash. I wish I had your energy. :-) Just recently I saw a Leica SL body going for a good price on eBay, and I thought, "Hmmmmm."...

    This could save a lot of people a lot of time and a lot of money.

    This is something that is very easy these days for still images, although you could argue that you don't need it for still images...

    That sounds like the kind of challenge I wish I had thrown at me! In fact I do occasionally think to myself how I would shoot a car commercial. If you want my brain dump, I'll let you see it, but by...

    Red has shown that it can do a really good global shutter. The global shutter should be the heart of DSMC3. Integrated frame averaging would also be fun, and better in some ways than HDRx.

  10. Would you shoot with a Sony PMW-F3, a ten year-old camera that now costs $800?

    It's ten years old and you can get it for under $1,000. But what's it like compared to a modern S35 hybrid?

    My two cents: more bits = more insurance just in case you fuck up a shot. But you have a point: a lot of people are happy with 10-bit 4:2:2. I'd probably be shooting ProRes as well.

    I'm amazed at how the Komodo is performing. I mean, think about it: the sensor is half the size, roughly, of the LF's, and has 50% more resolution. But in some ways it's not surprising. Red hasn't...

    That looks terrific. Honestly, I wonder if many people apply the grading too thickly. Do what you have to, but no more. IMHO.

    i wish I could say something here. But the A7 probably has terrible rolling shutter. Maybe a Fuji X-H1? That camera is terrific value if you're shooting manual focus. I don't know about rolling...

    Wow man. I WANT THESE. I mean, I wouldn't use them but... I just want them, you know?

    This is more evidence that S35 is probably the sweet spot for cinema. These lenses as amazing as they are (did...

    Yes. However, if it's running on a very hot day in direct sunlight, it will eventually overheat. It's an extreme case, but the Panasonic cameras will keep going where the Sony needs a break.

    To clarify: the lens doesn't compress (or stretch) anything. It just magnifies. Distance is the cause of perspective compression.

    Actually, I think that the high resolution is responsible for most of the fidelity. Shooting at resolution R is very, very different from shooting a resolution of R+n and then scaling down to R.

    I guess so, but then again ARRI needed three models, whereas Sony needed only one. ;-)

    I don't agree with this at all. They both have compelling features that don't exist on the other camera.

    Komodo: S35, 6K, global shutter.

    A7SIII: Low light, 4K120, FE mount, AF.

    Those are...

    Noteworthy: barely one 35mm production in this list, and no 16mm. Although I don't doubt that other productions are using film as well.

    I'm not sure that dual-gain has anything to do with the Bayer filter. I think its has to do with duplicating the output of the sensor before it is debayered, then amplifying one dataset, then merging...

    Are you kidding me, bro. Seriously. Those are quality photosites on that sensor. I could shoot almost any job with this camera. The only thing I wouldn't shoot with it would be architecture.
