I am currently shooting a short documentary film in Japan on Epic.
The images are beautiful, and the slow motion is excellent. But the fan noise when not recording is terrible. When there is a room full of monks in prayer, it's super disruptive to have the fan come on every time I cut the camera. It's 30 degrees heat here, and the fan is working overtime to keep up.
Did a couple of interviews yesterday. Three times I had the temperature display go into the yellow. So I made an excuse and cut for the fan to blast in at 110%. It's all set to auto, and yet we can he happily shooting and the temperature jumps.
I really don't want to care what temperature the camera is at. Why should this even be important to me? It's a technical background process that should be hidden, and invisible, and not disruptive to the shoot.
