Sorry if it was answered, didn't find it if it was ;)
I agree with you Shawn
If they share the same features then it's better & cheeper to get 2 Scarlet in place of one Epic (one for s35 and another 2/3 for slow motion)
-you guys are reading out twice without resetting the sensor back to "zero" state
- one shorter exposure reading out first, generating shorter motion blur on the shadows but preserving highlight detail,
-and a second "pass" that is longer but includes the first, with a brighter image, so the motion blur is longer on the highlights
-thus would need to integrate the two using the motion vector temporal math that the Foundry offers, to make the motion blur consistent
-the SDK method glues the two exposures together blending using HDR methods to get the highlight (edit, thinkin' backwards) detail from the first shorter readout but has potential motion blur inconsistencies between highlights and shadows
So expose from zero to a fraction of the 1/48th or whatever you're shooting, read it out while still exposing (preferably), then read it out again for the full 1/48th exposure
-therefore you're biasing the exposure a little on the hot/overexposed side, rather than balancing entirely, since highlight (edit, was thinkin' backwards) detail is coming from that first brief exposure period
-otherwise you have temporal mismatch - gotta expose with as much overlap as possible rather than sequentially.
To get the +3, then expose up to 3 stops overexposed?
How am I doing so far?
I see that with our 5D (in terms of STILLS). I really don't any longer feel the need for anything else in terms of full-frame 35 stills cam. I am happy. I don't read new stills cam announcements anymore. I don't care, I have what I need for that, I'm done.
5k 18 stops in raw in a light package!? I'll buy an Epic and just keep it forever.
Any comments on the 2K performance of the Epic? Same, better than MX?
Mike, a shorter exposure would give you more detail in the highlights, not the shadows. As far as how RED is doing their magic, that, I can't answer.
