Just in from shooting and still copying cards and SSDs.... So this is just an undocumented quickie which I may well have to step back from, but:
Seems the Epic is calibrated to the same highlight tolerance as the Alexa, which is good news if it comes through in the files, too.
That's like an ND6 out of the Matte and a ton less IR issues, compared to the R1 MX.
Much more to report, but that was one thing to make me an even more smiling guy today...
More to come...
Before going any further... I felt like revisiting the image from that first day. And just putting out a couple of series of what I shot on that Epic 1st day...
So here Goes... 1st series...
I don't do Ketch stuff...
Ketch does Ketch stuff... :-))
More to follow...
Edit... The images are really 1280... Dunno why they get scaled...
So... the point of publishing these images?
Basically that the Epic handles hard exposure situations with mature confidence.
Not once was I thinking during that day that:
"Hey... That's not really an issue, I'll fix that in post".
Which was an immensly bigger relief than I'd ever imagined.
When you add that this cam behaves well at both extremes of the exposurerange...
Gee. We're sort of back to ONLY making images.
Epic is not a shrinked R1 MX in any way I can see.
Epic is a totally new and great camerasystem of its own merit.
I DID expect that... Great to see that that assumption holds true!
I like Gunleik stuff!
I really appreciated your extensive test between the Arri Alexa and Red MX (http://reduser.net/forum/showthread....parative-tests)
I am looking forward to this one!
