    This is stunning and totally mesmerising.

    So the colour is purely from the OLPF? No post work? It almost looks CG it's so surreal.

    Rolling shutter is the single most annoying thing about cameras for me at the moment.

    As Bjorn points out - tracking with rolling shutter is a nightmare, honest to god nightmare. I had to do a...

    Hi Phil,

    Glad you're one of the first. I've held off asking anything just because i know you'll probably cover it anyway. But.

    I would be curious to know if that is a real global shutter or...

    There's some lovely work here.

    However from a UX view i suspect we're missing a few things.

    IMHO there's just too much being displayed that i simply don't care about when shooting. When i am...

    I'm glad Red reached out and understand the frustration.

    If they don't show up at the same time it sounds like they can't be dead pixels? So i would hope some kind of data corruption in the files,...

    I like the optical viewing finder attachment. I've been using one with the sigma fp (from sigma) and actually it's quite nice to see a big bright image rather than the smaller EVFs.

    +1 to flat and clean. BMD does some nice UI by the look of it (never used it).

    The only thing i'd add (because i'm seeing some issues) is that whilst that means physically they will fit but will all the lenses perform as best they can? The wider M mounts tend to have very...

    It's a scaling error. Lots of Sonys i've used have done this. IMHO it's the creation of negative lobes due to sharpening/scaling. Happens a lot in VFX work if you are dealing with high contrast...

    You don't want or need log encoding if you can record RAW. The 8 bit RAW files have a tone curve in them for compression anyway.
    There's no point recording anything other than RAW off these things...

    99.9% of prosumer cameras operate in 12bits in movie mode, even the latest sensors. That next generation up in cine cameras is where the cost comes in.

    I totally agree. Also if you shot in DC mode you get a pixel for pixel crop from the sensor. The 6K full frame -> UHD is softened a little by the scale.

    I hope they can offer more crops (DCI 4K...
