    GH2 lets me down!

    Your memory card is probably a fake or damaged. Where did you get the card from?
  2. [quote author=BurnetRhoades link=topic=712.msg5238#msg5238 date=1336779630] 4K is a waste for most applications.  It's just more and so long as digital release standards aren't much more than JPEG2000 sequences, 12bit or not, I'm not convinced 4K isn't anything but an engineering circle-jerk.  It's porkbelly pixels. [/quote] On that note a group of people I work with all got free tickets to see Hugo in 3D last month on a 2k screen. It was done so well and so sharp that they all told me they LOVED how Huge looked in 4k on the big screen and that the ne
  3. Great interview and excellent topic about sound design. If anyone owns the Aliens Quadrillogy DVD/BluRay pack there is an interesting interview with Elliot Goldenthal on this very topic.  He and director David Fincher wanted a movie score for Aliens 3 that was atmospheric and a blending of the sound effects.  The studio wanted the opposite and felt that the score needed to be separate from the sound effects.  The original idea was that the score was to provide "mood" and enhance existing sounds vs compete with them and or overpower them. Difficult balance and

There are solutions out there for the battery, for example the V-lock batteries for dSLR camera's, these have been around for AGES, there are mounts with dc power out, they have a Powerplug 15-30V out!! For me it's the crop and workflow expansion.. Going from i7 2600k edit suite, with 150GB per shortfilm to atleast 1TB per project, which is insane for me. I hate it to have it not cover run n gun situations, which still made me not pre order it. Also if there is a solution for my contax
  5. [quote author=Aleman link=topic=651.msg4815#msg4815 date=1335579920] It is probably very premature to be sure about the type of editing workflows the Blackmagic Cinema will require, from log and transfer to the necessary equipment to have, specially the workflow around Thunderbolt for RAW files on desktop Mac computer alternative. An article about this would be very helpful from the point of view of budgeting. [/quote] lol very premature being that the cameras are not out, the camera processing is still being tweaked, and the software for it is still be worked on by BM. Wait ti
  6. [quote author=shijan link=topic=596.msg4794#msg4794 date=1335551245] one more disadvantage - camera has glossy screen :( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t07XqdHMr0Q&feature=player_embedded#hd=1&hd=1 [/quote] It comes with a snap on hood as seen in this picture.  Problem solved.
  7. [quote author=jindrich link=topic=637.msg4720#msg4720 date=1335412202] In the Movie World NOTHING is certain. Remember the last flop, Disney's John Carter, $250M in production plus another $100M+ for marketing, and Sony is expecting a net loss of $200M. If people dislike 48p (I personally raise hand) this might be another flop. Simple as that. [/quote] I don't agree - The Hobit will get $100 million from LOR fans even if the picture is crap and it will get another $100 million from people "curious" about it and ready to voice their opinions good or bad.  Tack o
  8. WOW x100 Again this looks like Alexa footage grabs. Stunning.  Thanks VERY much for the updates.  Not that it matters for me - got my BH preorder in last week. This industry moves so fast but BM really did crush the Bolex and Ikonoskop with this announcement.  If it lives up to half the hype ill be happy.  Going to be nice to leave the digital DSLR look behind with this cam - should be fun!

    [quote author=FilmMan link=topic=635.msg4689#msg4689 date=1335372468] Hi Sara, I posted the DR number of 12 for the C500 as a comparison to BM.  The BM will have at least 13 stops.  Maybe BM will end up with 14 to 15???   I got in touch with BM yesterday and they have been working their tales off.  In a few weeks there should be some raw footage available.  They don't want to release footage prematurely as they want to show the best product at the time.  People are very judgemental, me included, so I can understand their situation with this new product.
  10. You are 100% correct.  Can't blame Canon for recycling parts - the sensor is what counts, but the problem is that Canon is falling behind in their sensor tech to other companies.  So Canon is using people like Shane Hurlbutt to pitch their products in a childish way - claiming "it can deliver an image that crushes the F65, Epic, Alexa in one fell swoop." http://www.hurlbutvisuals.com/blog/2012/04/the-next-gen-in-digital-film-capture-canons-4k-1dc/ When you have to resort to over the top bullshit brand bashing like that - you know you have lost the battle.&nbs

    For $30,000?  Dynamic range can't even beat a Red Scarlet?  And what happens in 6 months when the Dragon upgrades get installed? Uh oh.  And we are still a year away from a C500 launch.  I think Arri, Red, Sony can rest easy - Canon just doesn't get it.  They "want" to play in the high end but this isn't going about it right. What is with Canon and making sensors that HAVE HORRIBLE dynamic range vs their competition.  4 years after the release of the MK2, the MK3 gains almost NO dynamic range increase for video or stills: http
  12. Is part of the reason thunderbolt is included is to monitor from laptops?  More and more laptops will have this connection.  Not portable but it is a very accurate and customizable and upgradable.  Laptop stands, even those connecting to a tripod are cheap.
  13. [quote author=jcs link=topic=611.msg4402#msg4402 date=1334888813] The colors look fine, however in another thread with the same image I observed block artifacts on the hands. Folks are stating this camera is a game changer; perhaps best to compare with other cameras on the same material at the same time (same conditions). Skin tones look pretty good for one of the 'crushee's', the 5D3: https://vimeo.com/39237997 https://vimeo.com/40117480 I too would prefer more detail for for the 5D3, however for up-close, skin tones, etc., it works pretty well.

[quote author=BurnetRhoades link=topic=596.msg4404#msg4404 date=1334890841] [quote author=John Twigt link=topic=596.msg4368#msg4368 date=1334864547] No HDMI for EVF [/quote] This isn't really a negative.  HDMI has no business in the field.  It's a terrible hardware design.  Mini-HDMI even worse.  Never again. [/quote] So true.  So very very true.
  15. Lol do NOT edit the frame grab I posted.  It was a Windows snapshot of the compressed 720p video running on my laptop.  It was only ment to preview what video I linked to.  Sorry for any confusion.  We are still waiting for actual dng files. I still think the actual video looks great.  If anyone can show me a vimeo skintone sample from a dslr that looks as good I would love to see it.  Sure the red, alexa, and Sony f3 will smoke this BM device.  But they are not $3k.
