Which by now would be silly to say too much about, as I haven't dug into the files yet.
It has been incredible fun to handle Eiriks camera.
I urge everyone to rent it from him to get a hold of it. Seeing is believing
The setup is peretty basic. Basically the body, LCD and SSDs.
I didn't do chart bonanza. But challenging exposures with and without HDRx.
I'd really love to put it through its paces for another couple of days after initial analyzis.
That was the reservations...
I think I have never so intimately bonded with a piece of hardware in so short time.
I feel like just taking it away with me.
No internal battery?
The images (on set) just look so smooth and "fat" and in a good way noisefree.
Haven't a/b'd it with any other cam yet.
This was just a matter of oportunity, that had to be taken.
But from an operators perspective, this gives you all the confidence and comfort that the R1 in a way never seems to offer.
With the R1 (especially MX) I get the feel that every bit it stretched to the farest capacity.
With the Epic I get the feel of surpluss positive energy.
This was not very scientific or analytical.
But emotions are good, too.
They can give confidence to a DP/operator.
I really fell in love with this kit - for lack of better words.
And redLogFilm in-camera is just what the doctor ordered. Thanks!!!
