  1. A revolution in optics: the spaceplate

    If this can actually be used as a viable product, kiss goodbye to pretty much every single lens that you currently own. Because this has the possibility to be one of those developments that changes...

    Maybe a solution is to document every part of the process, including notarisation, and always use serial numbers etc? Or is that not relevant here?

    Just chipping in to say that this is a great deal IMHO. If I had the cash I'd buy it, just for fun. I'm surprised it hasn't sold yet.

    Rand, I absolutely want film to remain. But if there is no reason to use it, if it does not have a unique selling point, then it's over. You only need one technical advantage - just one. For me, it's...

    I think I agree with the last statement in that video. Sadly, I can see a future where all the problems that plague digital will finally be addressed. I shouldn't say 'sadly' because normally I'm...

    Holy aspect ratio, Batman!

    BTW, regarding the Epic, what's your opinion of HDRx?

    Lovely images, Patrick. That sensor is gold. There is more than one ten year-old sensor which still holds its own today...

    I absolutely love the MX sensor. As a camera the Epic MX still holds up today. It's now ten years old. If you want value, there is no other camera that can match it.

    I probably should have been clearer: the Alexa footage that was 'flat' was strictly footage shown from one production in that video. I have seen lovely images from Alexa productions, obviously. I...
  10. DPs used to advertise their services in AC magazine

    How things have changed. And yet, in some ways, they haven't:

    I agree with most of that, if not all of it. I loved that 7213 footage though. That's just beautiful stuff. The Alexa footage looked rather flat compared to it. And maybe that's our problem. If we...

    This was quite useful, although I would have liked to see a light source test (in-focus LEDs at various voltages). The only camera that I wouldn't use is the Canon. Although what is the point of the...

    Just like copying lighting setups from other DPs. I wonder sometimes if publishing lighting setups should be verboten. Describing lighting problems is great, but if you publish the setups, others...
  15. Color grading fads like teal & orange, log look,...

    Color grading fads like teal & orange, log look, and that weird dirty green are really obnoxious. And if you can include underexposure, that too. It doesn't sell tickets. You see a lot worse in...

    My goodness. $60K plus - not bad when you consider that if it's going to be used for film & TV, it's going to be rented out. Very few DPs would probably own one.

    I am curious as to the sensor size...

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. I am aware that Alexas have a RAW option, but a lot of productions are very happy with ProRes.

    I am coming from the opposite end: I am thinking about buying a Scarlet MX - a camera coming close to ten years old. The reason is that I want experience with an actual cinema camera without spending...

    I'm happy to give my opinions but I need to know if you're asking just a general question, or about photography specifically. In general I spend as little time on the computer as possible when it...

    How about something goth, like Lucretia or Eleanor. Or something chic and exotic like Valkyrie (which will be the middle name of any daughter I may have, if it ever happens).

    That's some nice footage. There is everything right with this camera, especially considering that it's about 10 years old. The image has a film-like quality to it.
