That didn't take long...The horse looked healthy in Marks post
He looked like he was scared of something though... I'm not sure maybe something off camera?
Well if it was a Dragon i mite look the same :)

Re: Not knowing grading systems.
I have spent hours with LUTS and curves with side by side images and tests and can easily get approximations like the samples that were just posted. But I don't think you are taking into account the details. What you are doing is like taking marginal sounding speakers and messing with a graphic EQ to try and sound close to balanced studio monitors. Then because your ear isn't refined enough, you call it done. I would rather have the high end , well balanced studio monitors in the first place. I'm not only talking about me, I'm referring to 2 different colorists who tell me how much extra work it takes for them to get a decent look from EPIC because of all the secondary work needed to get the colors balanced, most notably yellows and skin tones. This is the cue for you to tell me how they don't know their systems. I won't get into name dropping their credentials, but suffice to say they do. Granted this is before RC3, but I don't see how RC3 changed things much.
I should have known that I cannot try and have a balanced conversation on this board about the nature of various cams I own without, "If RED's not the best at everything, then you suck!". Unfortunate. But my point still stands. Producer's ask for Alexa for many reasons most notably it's look. I do not disagree with anyone who says EPIC looks clean and sharp. Absolutely. 1000%. But there's the aesthetic of the image.
guys lets be honest , Alexa's footage have a beautiful look to them the skin tone is perfect and the dual gain structure for handling 7 stop over expose for iso 800 is amazing , in the other hand the resolution the high speed and the size and the price of epic is not comparable to any of other camera , i personally like the look of Alexa but how a company treat you as a customer is much important for me as a rental company , so i never buy Alexa as far as they treat people like their slaves even if Alexa is the best camera in the planet.
I don't think your points are invalid. I do think Alexa is chosen for more reasons than just workflow. I know several DPs who really like the image the camera produces. People may react emotionally here, but that's because it's a passionate forum, pretty much unrivaled anywhere on the web when it comes to camera forums. But personally, I am not that interested in pissing matches. I like productive discussion, because quite often it can be a learning experience for everyone involved. It's the kind of vibe you want on a community based forum. Everyone striving to get better, willing to help each other get better, and in the end a great resource of information.
