Alexa team took 30 minutes to relight the scene.
Sony F65 was the only team that didn't change anything to the lighting ...
Can't really argue with that. If Ridley Scott says Epic is his preferred camera of choice, there really isn't much more that can be said.I saw an interesting test on the EPIC just last week.. It was called "Prometheus"
In any event, horses for courses, if I-Phone fits your deliverables profile, then that is what you should use.
Although it was a very big mistake from Red to ever even sell the first Mysterium camera. Now we can all agree and be honest about the fact that it looked like crap, like a 4k bad video camera. But back then, Jim and other folks at Red were fighting everyone saying how good it was. Really? You guys lost a lot of cred there. Mysterium X saved Red, but the bad smell still sticks...
Also the Shootout has far too much sentimentality crap for my taste. And I'm also confused about this notion that 'its a test, but its not really a test...' so what is it, a documentary about a test that doesn't matter what the results are? Make up your minds, will you please?
Alexa, F65...these are all the step-children of what RED created. RED, pun intended, is the original PROMETHEUS.
You may not like their style, but you certainly seem to like the world they have created.
Me thinks, perhaps, you take them for granted.
Antonio, not really sure what you are saying here. I'll freely admit that the 'overhead', file sizes, post processes and so forth are somewhat cumbersome with Red, but the final results are huge. No doubt, you need accomplished post people to make that happen.What a whiner...
But, like a German cook of impressive girth and huge reputation, in a small family restaurant in Bavaria some years ago, as I was starvingly waiting for my Sauerbraten and Rostbratkartofflen, some fifty minutes into the wait, he said, 'Ach Was! Good Food takes time to cook!)
Have another Schnapps, it will all come good.

Go take a look back at those movies and TV shows shot on the original R1 - none of them looked as you described. Just because the M-X was an improvement doesn't mean the original was bad.
The test was a crime... It was more like a DP shoot out rather than a camera shoot out. It's like having a guitar shoot out and inviting each top musician to play a different guitar.
And then after it's all over, saying this guitar sounds better based on the musicians abilities. Doesn't prove anything.
