    4k DI ana. vs RED MX 2.40 sphere.... serious mano e mano.
    MX was throwing resolution away too!

    I don't really know how to use this forum but here's what I can tell you, the RED crew have treated me like a king, I've have never before the Green Hornet even had my hands on a digital imaging camera and now I feel like an expert, I can talk RECODE with Jim, Deanen and Micheal Cioni and I sound like know what I am talking about! I am not a technical cinematographer, I apprenticed with Vittorio Storaro and he told me to trust my eye and my heart not my meter, and that's what I have done, and with a lot of l luck it has served me well in my career. My experience with the RED camera has been the same as with any other camera, understand how it sees the world, and then use that it tell your story. On the Green Hornet Kodak 5219 made the "Green Hornet's" green jacket look blue, and 5229 made the jacket look green, so I chose 5229 because it saw the world closer to what it really was, the RED MX is the same, understand how it sees the world and do your magic as a cinematographer to help it tell your story. I have been part of a very select group of DP's that have actually shot with the EPIC and I can tell that the 3lb 5K camera is a game changer, end of story, game over, pick your cliche'. I am still very committed to film, it 's still the best data recorder if budget isn't an object. I don't think we've figured out digital archiving, and if you shoot EPIC you will have a lot of data. I will tell you this I have shot more tests on the EPIC than probably any other DP other than my mate Andrew Lesnie who is doing the "Hobbit", we skype daily about how this camera blows our mutual minds, when you see these image projected at 4K it's like looking a vistavision. For those of you lucky enough to get to use this tiny masterpiece all I can say is "data storage" we all asked for less compression and Jim has brought it on us. My thanks to the RED ARMY(Jim, Jarred, Deanen, Ted, Lia, Nate) and LightIron for educating me on de-bayering and not making me afraid of the future of cinematography, and most of all thank you Jim, it's Chanuka, so all I can say is that you are a mensch. I bet you can't wait for my next post! If for some reason I wanted to post on the EPIC site how would I do that?

    John

    Welcome to the Reduser forum Mr. Schwartzman. Its wonderful having a cinematographer of your caliber commenting on this forum. I absolutely loved your work on Seabiscuit, what a stunningly good looking film (one of my dad's favorites as well).

    Please keep us posted on your experiences with the Epic. I have a feeling it is going to revolutionize both 2D and 3D cinematography.

    Thank You, like all cinematographers we do it for ourselves and hope other people like it. I am a digital novice but I am fortunate to be surrounded by the likes of Steve Freebairn, Micheal Cioni and Brook Willard, who have taken me under there wing to reducate me.
