    It's also going to embarrass a few high-end hybrid cameras, never mind more expensive cinema cameras from other manufacturers.

    It's worth repeating that chrominance NR is far more important and useful than luminance NR, all other things being equal. I always apply chroma NR to photos, but never lumi NR (with minor...
  3. 1990s stock photos - is there a free or very very cheap repository out there?

    I'm looking for some 1990s stock photos, mainly corporate related. I have been looking and it's not easy to get 'vintage' stock. I'm happy to buy stock if it's very cheap but of course I prefer free...

    I don't own a Red camera, but when you say 'manually calibrate', I assume you mean blackshading. If so, I have heard that you should get the camera hot before doing that. You should also have a...

    Very cool setup. I like the interior, too. Functional, neat, nothing too showy. I agree with Mark about the music, but I'd go further and say that music is redundant. You don't have to have it at...

    I don't think that any professional camera had this much attention. Maybe the R1 did, and perhaps the Scarlet did, too. If Kodak actually produces their Super 8 camera, we might have some...

    Strange indeed. I also note the loss in detail.


    I technically could buy one... but my budget is somewhat strict, until my investments start to yield serious growth. It may very well be the best...

    I had a go applying a Silver Efex filter to one of the frames. I chose Tri-X, a very small amount of grain (I turned the Hard setting up to maximum), and I also turned Structure all the way up to...

  13. Matte paintings are apparently more convincing than digital VFX

    To a point, anyway.

    If I become a crypto millionaire*, I'm going to recreate this shot with these four systems:

    - Monstro

    - 5-perf 65mm

    - 4-perf 35mm anamorphic (probably Master Anamorphics for minimal...

    Wow man, that's terrific stuff. I wish I had a huge display to watch it on.

    BTW I do have a technical note. The footage looks a bit flat - which is typical for digital monochrome. It really needs...

    From what I understand, you can't make a FLR for the M lenses, due to the fact that they aren't retrofocus designs, or something like that. OTOH, they're so small, it almost doesn't matter.

    So... you get both depth and colour at the same time? What's the shortest exposure you can make? Can you get infinite DOF? The FAQ doesn't work on their site.

    Bingo. And in fact I can confirm that you do get colour - just the one, though. In my case I got magenta. I asked the owner of https://www.monochromeimaging.com to send me a RAW file from a...
  20. Two basic questions about debayering

    1. What would happen if you debayered a monochrome RAW file? What kind of funky results would you get? Would you get any actual colour?

    2. Can you REbayer a debayered image? I assume you can, but...

    It won't. ;-) The Komodo looks like it's going to be yet another winner. It will probably be far superior to any hybrid camera (DSLR/DSLM), present or future. For a year or two, at the least. It will...
