    • The camera seems pretty interesting, especially with its various HDR and Log profiles, 10-bit h.264 and various flavours of ProRes.  Also, interestingly the specifications read: "Sensitivity: F11 at 2000lx 89.9% reflectance" Which I am guessing means that the sensors isn't too bad for low light, either.    It's clearly an ENG cameras with its broadcast feature emphasis. Only if it had a larger sensor (like a M43 one on the DVX200), and some frame rate options.    Maybe JVC is trying to figure why they aren't selling well, despite some interesting features on their various cameras. And thus the comprehensive survey.   
    • I agree with @webrunner5, it's too dark and doesn't look good. Kind of like that Game of Thrones episode we had a topic about recently. I'm also watching on a color calibrated monitor. I even turned the lights off to give them an extra benefit. Subjectively, I think it was poorly done, the the fact that they had an extensive, professional team and used such amazing gear makes me sad. The thing about darkness is you always need a point of reference. Like that image @Anaconda_ posted from 12 years a slave. That lantern blows out, showing just how dark it really is in the environment, and you get that wonderful, insane lowlit glimmer on the eye from the lantern. You still see the characters standing out against the background, giving your eyes a focal point. What it does do is give you outlines that your imagination works with. The almost pitch black background closes in around the protagonist. The two faces show expressions, but your mind puts in the details. A lot of the frames from the Fuji video were just normal images, but dark. Instead of using darkness to occlude something that your mind fills in, it's just an ordinary shot, darker. Like the two shot at 1:22. It's not just dark, it's flat. No highlights, no eyes, no backlighting, really just a completely ordinary two shot where you can't quite see it comfortably. And again at 2:28 the guy with the bat. No contrast to pull the character out of the scene, or to give your eyes a place to go. There's no sense of the lighting drawing your eye to a person in a dark world, it's just an ordinary shot of a guy in a garage that's underexposed.
    • Nice one, it actually works really nicely! I use a Macbook PRO 2012 with 16gb ram and 512gb ssd and upscaling to 3840x2160 is fine. I exported a total 114 clips with that resolution. The trick is that I record for no more than 6 seconds per shot or below 10 seconds at max which is all I need. So it exports quickly per clip when upscaling to 4K. Longer clips will take a long time.   
    • I knocked out a couple of my own videos during 48Hours (a competition when you need to make an entire short film within 48Hours! Very popular in New Zealand each year) for my YouTube channel "Sound Speed!":   
    • Not all of us... when only a few of us do fair criticism! LOL : )   Imagine if Andrew would adopt this new trend... This world would be much poorer with the lack of the standard we become to be used to. Speaking of devil... lead me to find such unbiased reviewing outside where there's no friendly place for fanboys, please? Take it for free: don't bash your luck, guys ; -)
