    This is one of the most interesting comments I've read in a long time. Back in the early '90s, I asked a friend of mine who was in film school, how come AF wasn't used in movie cameras when cheap...

    For me, Micro 4/3 offers opportunities that outweigh limitations. I'll give a quick overview.

    That Canon FD 35-105/3.5 can now be a tele zoom with a straight adapter. It's not the most practical...

    A compelling case for Micro 4/3:

    Who needs 4K? It's a gimmick. If it's so useful, why do so many professional cameras top out at 2.5K? And future proofing is pointless. 4K TVs will take years and years to become mainstream. In that...

    Very cool. I like it!

    I would not call it a projector, though. ;-)

    Patrick has a good suggestion: a clip-on diffuser.

    I think you could expand this idea. How about making this a modular...

    A good rule of thumb: when you see photographers putting their tripods down in the same spot, go in a different direction. ;-)



    True. And true.


    Very good points.

    Super 35 isn't going anywhere

    Change my mind.

    I agree. There are only two reasons to make larger sensors:

    1. Resolution (which is why 65mm film exists)

    2. Sensitivity (this applies less to film than it does to digital)

    Any other reason...
  11. Preparing for VV+ RED sensors - photo lenses that cover 'digital medium format'

    I have little doubt that one day Red will produce a camera with a VV+ sized sensor, something with a similar surface area of Leica's ProFormat of 45x30mm, or the 44x33mm sensor as found in Fuji GFX...

    Fuck that looked good. And the best I can do right now is 1080. Judging by the jittery motion of the cars, however, I wasn't quite getting the true experience.

    I would have been tempted to troll...

    Those frames look really, really good. Not only that, but the website is very nice as well.

    Very, very cool. Well shot, edited, directed etc. Nice LUT, although it could have been taken down a little. But really there's nothing to complain about. Solid.

    Seems that RED has rolling shutter...

    To repeat once more: you don't have to use this mode if you don't want to. You're over-thinking it. Chillax.

    You don't have to use motion smoothing either. In fact you can de-colorize b&w films if...

    This is genius. Why didn't I think of this? I have access to disused LCDs so I will give it a try.

    Nobody is saying this.


    Agreed. If motion smoothing is an option (which ought to be off by default) then Filmmaker Mode can be an option, too. Life can be simple. :-)
  19. Analysis of the 6.5 minute trailer for Hitchcock's 'Psycho'

    A trailer that goes for 6 and a half minutes which doesn't show any of the film itself. Great stuff.

    Better late than never! Took them fucking long enough to do something like this, though. I'd be happy enough if those stupid frame interpolation modes were turned off by default.

    I'm not a VistaVision guy but check the Panasonic S1H thread. That camera is better than we think it is, and I'd easily take it over a Scarlet X, though maybe not an EPIC X (though I need to find out...

    Nothing in the history of cinema matches season 1 of TP. However, FWWM introduced its own vibe, which I love.

    To the best of my knowledge, on a per-pixel level, DR is fixed and immutable at a fundamental level. Is that something that everyone can agree upon?

    Oversampling, AFAIK, does increase usable DR,...
