See, the thing is, you guys only look at this from one perspective. The big screen. But there are a plethora of reasons as to why many people don't feel any need to shoot 4k... because it's not often needed and creates problems later on. For example, I was working on a production last month that had super tight turn around times. We didn't want to shoot on the likes of the EX1 or similar, so we chose the Alexa. For us it was perfect, and meant that the turn around time was manageable. Something that wouldn't have been possible if we were shooting on RED. Obviously RED wants everything to be measured on resolution, as they will win. But for most people, 4k, 6k and whatever comes next isn't really important, as we aren't shooting for big screen. We are shooting for TV and the internet. I often wonder how many of you guys are actually shooting for the big screen...
He he, this is what I'm talking about Jim... And yeah the dust in the eyes and misconception out there is unreal, I'm happy you don't have to hear what I'm hearing here in Europe, it will make you roll over all night long, or those few hours you actually do spend in bed... ;)
Great idea, even so unfortunately I already know, this will not work out, in the sense the few if any companies will actually arrange for their representative camera and team to come to RERD STUDIOS, why? Well, isn't that OBVIOUS?!?
I love competition, but I would never got to race a FERRARI on with a FIAT 500, even if it is the new KICK A^%$# FIAT 500 ABARTH which really is a super fast little animal... Why? Well, because I am a sportsman, but I sure would not like to make a full of myself neither, if I don't have a comparable machine to race with I just wan't race, no matter how good of a driver I can be, if I don't got the horse power under my A^%$# it wan't cut it... ;)
EPIC is the best Digital Cinema Camera produced till now...period
