All the footage I'm shooting with the epic-w looks awesome, and I haven't had too many complaints - especially with the changes in ipp2 that fixed a lot of the banding.
I did a fresh auto black shade today after updating to the new firmware. When I booted up the camera, I had an 85mm lens closed all the way, and I noticed there were a lot of horizontal lines in the noise of the blacks.
When I push the exposure heavily in redcine-x I can see the effect exaggerated. I guess I'm just curious if this is the normal noise structure of this sensor. I don't think I notice it when everything is exposed correctly, but I'd like to know if that is normal.
Here's a simple screen grab:
and here's a link to an r3d:
I appreciate any info.
