    Took 'em long enough!



    Given the constellation of 8K post hardware that BMD demoed at NAB, I think it was a pretty clear statement that BMD has an 8K camera in the works. My guess is that when...

    It doesn't look like many NLEs have adopted it yet, which is unfortunate.

    Scratch and Mistika have it (Mistika in beta), but neither is an NLE.

    What if Komodo is intended to be the heart of a new modular camera range, with Ranger taking up the high end?

    I don't have the budget for an immediate upgrade to Ranger, but I'm going to plan on...

    Yep... sometimes I wish that Scratch were also an NLE, but Assimilate is staying focused on dailies + color and finishing.

    When shooting landscapes with my Red, I do miss my 4x5... but good luck capturing motion with a view camera! ;)



    I think the days of our military leading the way in R&D are long past.

    You can clean the shadows with noise reduction, and downsampling is one way to implement noise reduction -- a good one, obviously, but the recorded dynamic range remains constant.

    Ergo, the dynamic range of a given camera is fixed, unless you change the sensor. :)

    And since in a sensor intended or a high end camera, a bad pixel = a bad sensor, you don't get the same forgiveness that you do with something like a GPU or a modern processor. There's a reason that...

    I've been starting to use Scratch for color grading, which has a color tool that is heavily inspired by 3D LutCreator, because it does make some things much easier. There are also a lot of controls...

    The DSMC2 cameras can record up to 4K ProRes in camera (422, not 444). I don't do that often because 4K ProRes is as big as 8K Redcode. :)

    In light of how small a slice of the GPU market that is, it's largely irrelevant as far as its affect on NVidia and its pricing.

    That's obviously not the reason. Making 7nm DRAM cells is FAR less complicated than making processors. Nearly every fab launches using simpler to manufacture things like memory, so that's hardly new....
