… is puzzling to me.
I have great respect for the achievements of the DPs and directors in Zacutos jury. But why do this people compare 1080p cameras with a 5K Epic? It seams to me that they never seen a 4K-monitor live which would be definitly the next generation of monitors build on the new OLED technology. I believe that 1080p will become obsolete in any professional environment when the new technology comes on a reasonable price. And this would happen in the next few month.
This post is for those who have a 27 "Apple Cinema Display and can watch a resolution of 2560x1440.
I created some clips in Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) just to see EPIC footage in "merely" 2.5K resolution. Even this difference is significant to 1080p.
I used the EPIC-X wit Canon EF 24-70mm 1:2.8L USM and a Canon EF 16-35mm 1:2.8L USM lens.
