    Hi everybody,

    been shooting with the Monstro the last couple month and beside the large format and everything else this cam offers, the most big
    step forward is how the sensor performs color accuracy wise.

    Anyway, the most stuff I shot so far was at normal conditions.
    So I just took the chance at the Frankfurt Luminale event and checked how it performs in lowlight with very mixed and ugly
    street lights, led, and available lighting conditions.

    Nothing fancy just me the MONSTRO rigged on a monopod with a 20mm or 50mm Sigma ART Prime walking thru that event.

    Edit and basic IPP2 grade in Davinci Resolve, no special look, more on the cool side and for sure there is much more useful information in the shadows.

    Shot with the lowlight OLPF in 8K HD with a 5:1 compression (beside one slow-motion in 12:1) and no post noise reduction at all.
    The Vimeo upload is a H265 UHD file straight out of Resolve. And I know there is one little render error in that file ;-)

    Very impressive. Monstro certainly looks like a low-light beast.

    Thanks guys,

    Low-Light is one thing, but I really love how easy and good the Monstro footage handles different and "ugly" lighting scenarios and it "feels" when manipulate in the grading session....

    Just another quick and rough done example .....

    Hi Tobi,

    thanks for posting these examples of monstro at night. Any chance you can post some .r3d's with some people's faces? I'm curious how skin can be corrected in these challenging environments.

    Hi everybody,

    check out some r3d snaps to play with.

    Remember, these are some "ugly" real life examples with some bad LED, street lights or what ever projections in the skin tone hues .......

    Looking forward how you guys develop those raw R3Ds ...... have fun.....
