    AMAZED - Skin tones, Dynamic Range, lowlight, WOW.

    The dragon sensor and REDs digital cinema technology keeps pushing the industry forward and into uncharted territory. Obviously we will always want more of something in a camera because thats what keeps the industry moving forward... but damn this sensor sees some amazing stuff and I would be happy with it for the next 50 years. Then again I said that about the MX sensor! hahaha

    wait a minute! Peter Collister doesn't look like Michael Jackson!

    another balloon burst.

    Thanks for posting this great footage. The rolloff is super smooth, creamy, and beautiful. The shot directly into the sun tells quite a tale...though the sun itself is blown, there's a ton of detail in those leaves....

    Peter, can you please elaborate further on the first few shots skintone test, how do you grade it. Is it a light grade, full grade. That looks really good. Would appreciate it if you can explain the process.

    Thank you

    I have notes on every shot and what lens and T stop was used.

    Dynamic range is, after all, the measurement between well saturation (photosite blowout) and noise floor.

    Thanks Peter! Nice reminder too of how good stills lenses can be (in the hands of a maestro, obviously). WOW!

    Peter, best looking footage yet. This ought to quiet a few people.
    Love the amusement park shot with the roller coaster moving along the tracks.
