    JLemos got a reaction from kidzrevil in Cinema5D slates the Panasonic GH5, calls V-LOG and 10bit "unusable" - They're wrong   
    Also, if i'm not wrong, they don't really tell how the lut and grading was applied. For example, if they just plaster it over the image in Premiere with Lumetri, there may be some problems like those if the sequence isn't at "Maximum Bit Depth".
    That is even seen if you're using a native ProRes file, with a h264 file should be even worst.
    You can see the difference in a fast example i made with a 10bit prores v-log file from a GH4 (recorded with Ninja Assassin), left without "Maximum Bit Depth", right with "Maximum Bit Depth" active.
    p.s: I just applied the native "Alexa_Default_LogC2Rec709" from Lumetri

    JLemos got a reaction from varicam in Interview with Panasonic - raw HDMI output may be coming to future GH4 firmware plus anamorphic aspect ratios in firmware V2.0   
    Aside from the anamorphic goodness...
     
    The camera shoots at 96fps, so there's many frames per second to spare, could it be hard to them to make an HDR mode like the one on Magic Lantern but with the final file made on camera?
     
    This would be great and a stand point over A7S.

    JLemos got a reaction from utsira in Lumix GX7 music video, it's not the size that matters   
    We shot this music video with my Lumix GX7 after comparing the image quality with other Canon cameras that we had available.
    Samyang lenses were used with a EF adapter.

    JLemos got a reaction from Cosimo murgolo in New short shot with a Canon 5D MkII   
    Hello.
    I've been a long time reader of your site.
    Check this short i've edited and graded. I think it's worth 12m of your time.

    JLemos reacted to Andrew Reid in 5D Mark III raw versus Panasonic GH4   
    A low contrast look is not superior. You can make the GH4 and 5D raw look as flat as a pancake if you want to. Question is what is the benefit? If your monitor had a low contrast look you'd return it to the shop! I don't know why people think a flat look is superior. For grading raw has no look. It isn't flat. It is raw data straight off the sensor that describes colours, whites and blacks. Why compress all that into the mids and get grey? I blame stuff like CineStyle for the confusion.

    JLemos got a reaction from Aussie Ash in Check out the First Short Film Shot on the 4K Panasonic GH4: Does high resolution = video-ish image   
    Most people doing video work (that looks like film to them  :) ) usually only have one lens beside the stock one, the cheaper 50mm from Canon, that's a safe lens, you can get easily good pictures without much work involved.
    With wider lens you have to be more careful, there's much more going on in the image, many people don't get it right easily, i think that this short is one good example, it was made in a hurry also.
    The light is mostly bad, the color grading… at some times looks like it came from a Canon DSLR, too much red tint, again made in a hurry maybe with bad reference monitors and maybe by inexperienced grader.
    The "actors" and editing… it's that kind of things that can work within a group of friends but you should't show it to everyone else.   :)
     
    It's not the camera, it's how and what you do with it. Not so long ago we were putting lens adapters in front of our DVX100, HVX200, PD150 so it could have the "film look", without it it was a video camera that made videoish images. The film that Gareth Edwards made before the new "Godzilla" was shot with a Sony EX3 with a lens adapter http://nakedfilmmaking.com/2010/10/05/naked-monster-the-future-of-film/  
     
    I respect Nick Driftwood a lot but i think he got carried away with this hype around GH4 and with everyone trying to show new footage.
     
    My order is still awaiting for stock in Europe, i won't cancel it because of this.

    JLemos got a reaction from Zmu in Sony FS700 Test with Post-Production   
    This is a test with a Sony FS700.
    The biggest downside of this camera is the internal codec, not very gradable, there's a lot of work to be done so you can pull more out of the images without loosing much quality. This was also shot only with natural light, nothing more, soon i'll make a side to side clip so everyone can check the before and after.

    This was a post work i've done with footage from FS700. Not impressed at all with the image, crushed and noisy blacks and very little detail on them. Not very color grading friendly. Hope you enjoy it. Cheers.

    I have been following the development of a new anamorphic lens created by Personal-View user Apefos, and today we finally have the first footage:

    It is remarkable to me what a lone person can overcome and accomplish with a little conviction and a lot of patience.

    For more information, see the thread at Personal-View.
