I saw a preview of 21. (It was great, but that is not the point.) If I read the credits right, it was filmed with a Genesis III. When the rest of you go see the film tell me if my eyes saw that right. The point is that the Genesis has a CCD and the Red One has a CMOS. People have been talking here about the HV20 and rolling shutters. What will Scarlet have? CCD or CMOS. It was determined that CMOS was best for One, but could CCD be best for Scarlet? Is CCD best for non tripod applications? Will I get Jello vision if I shoot fast action hand held shots with a CMOS? Will OIS take care of some of that problem?
The opening scene in 21 is a great panning shot of Jim Sturgess riding his bike across a bridge in Boston. I don't know if it was filmed from a crane or helicopter, but it was a great shot and since it was filmed on a CCD sensor, the panning looked great. The panning scenes of Vegas at night looked good too.
I don't have a $75 million budget like was used for the making of 21. I need a cheaper camera. I read about the Casio Exilim Pro EX-F1 in the April issuse of Pop Photo. It uses a CMOS. It will be interesting to see what the Red team thinks of its sensor. (I also saw the Sigma DP1 in Pop Photo, but the DP1 can't do anything much as far as video goes. Who cares if it has a DSLR sized sensor.)
Anyways, I read a little about rolling shutter on the web. I have learned a lot from you guys here on reduser and hope to learn more. Before someone here mentioned rolling shutter, I didn't even know what it was. Thanks for keeping me informed.
Ok, back to practicing counting cards. "Winner, winner, chicken dinner."
