So Jim, is Peter getting 30 hand machined EPICS? :-)
Hehe, great pic :)
The last days really have been a blast just reading posts. this is what makes reduser all so worthwhile.
You don't only get to play with the cool gadgets, Jim, But also with the cool, big kids.
Very satisfactory - if I'd imagine myself in your position.
5 years ago I made the decision to build a camera. 3+ years ago we delivered the 1st ones. Today we are announcing that one of the biggest movies of our time will be shooting on our cameras. Pretty unbelievable.
Amazing! Congratulations Jim and the gang. It is amazing but, as has already been said, not at all surprising for anybody who knows. What else would they shoot on?
Amazing, Amazing News, Amazing Image!!!
Epic rocks from New Zealand.
Also I'm living just around a corner from New Zealand's Consulate in Vienna...
Now seriously thinking to apply for NZ visa, fly there and tell them to shoot Hobbit with new lightweight and fast Leica's...
and shooting slow-motion with Epic @ 120 fps "how the huge tiger sharks on the fly jumping out of water in a way of the hunting young Albatross birds at the South Pacific Ocean"***
all that using 600mm EF telephoto lens from Canon.
And of course simultaneously Jim is singing his favorite song "What A Wonderful World" lyrics by Louis Armstrong, smiling and smoking "Cohiba" Cuban cigar .
But all that was shooting in 3D with 2x Epic by PJ crew and it took the main part of introduction scene in Hobbit.
*** The similar scene was already seen (BBC) but now everything changed to fit in Hobbit...
Jean-Luc Godard showed us 50 years ago how all is working with re-making and re-modeling your favorite the scenes from other movies in his master-peace "À bout de souffle" .
Hollywood took this "pattern" as one of its favorite movie writing concepts and rolling it all the time till present.
One of the famous examples is the work of American director Quentin Tarantino.
