  1. +1 to you Andrew. I agree with everything here. Funny thing is, indie filmmakers such as myself seem to be [i]less [/i]worried about new workflows - heck, technology - than the industry itself. Why is that? Because we are not tied down to a mindset of "this is how we have always done it." We know the world is growing, changing and the better, often harder, choices are more beneficial in the long run. We will look back in two years and see ProRes used mainly as a proxy or web quality - the real stuff will all be RAW in some form. Technology will help in compressing the math in the
  2. [quote name='EOSHD' timestamp='1342451674' post='13965'] I do agree with this. Natural light, or natural looking staged light is what I tend to go for when shooting with the GH2, or any of my other cameras be it 5D Mark III, FS100 or NEX 7. But I still think Colt did a nice job of making people think the GH2 was the Epic :) [/quote] My 5dmkII has helped me a lot in this area (in stills mode lol) by forcing me to not just use flash to get an exposure but rather expose for the natural light and fill in or barely use flash as a catch light. The mood is much more drama
  3. [quote name='steve zacuto' timestamp='1342480997' post='13997'] Couple of things. Let's talk about the GH2, the hack they used was not stable and crashed a lot. I don't think it would be viable in a real production. One thing that seems to be misunderstood is that the scene was supposed to be very dark. The original lighting was supposed to be a room with a few practlcle lights on in the house and the extreme light coming in form the window. What Colt and Jonny did was to over light the scene and make it a bright room. I think people interpreted this as h
  4. Andrew - I guessed A,B,C,D,F,G,H correctly in my write-ups. I feel proud of that, missing only E and I. I'm glad C300 was not I. I was second to last for me, even behind G. Just too sterile. My favorites guessed last month were: H, F, C and A. I agree with every word you said about camera H - the F65- and I am happy that we both saw and write the truth with how it handled NATURAL light and looked most like film in the skin. The reason why B was down on my list was that it is by far the most lit scene and upon one quick glance (which most of the voters did), looks most memorable. H
  5. [quote author=evil_thought2 link=topic=853.msg6336#msg6336 date=1340233874] See this comment from someone who watched the screening: http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?78175-Zacuto-Great-Camera-Shootout-and-free-parking!/page5 [quote]SONY F65: Looked good, in fact was my number one choice. On further viewings I did see a slight magenta tinge to the post corrected version. This may have been a result of trying to fix the color balance on the skin tones.[/quote] That's the third person who mentioned the "magenta tinge" I think it's pretty certain H is F6
  6. [quote author=evil_thought2 link=topic=853.msg6331#msg6331 date=1340229645] So now we have this D: Iphone G: 7D B: GH2 H: F65 F: Alexa (very likely) It's highly  likely that the above list is correct. We just have to sort the remaining. Many people who watched the screening didn't like C300. That leaves I for C300 Epic is probably E (light reflection on the girl hair on Sofa) ? A and C then are F3 and FS100 -- not sure which is which [/quote] Ya, probably. If "I" is C300 - which it may be - than at least in this final composition, I'd choose B o
  7. Thanks Andrew, ya I agree with your assessments. I waited three years for the 5dmkII, love it, use it a ton for photography and am very pleased. Video obviously created a spark and stir and got things rolling. I am disappointed with how Canon has raised the price and lowered sharpness on the 5dmkIII - so I pre-ordered a Black Magic! Again, this coming from a guy who said FF was the bomb and all you GH1-2 and small form-sensor people take a hike. Now I have bought a camera with a smaller sensor than GH2! Maybe what changed my mind was pulling focus for a 48 hour short on the 5dmkII  :D
  8. Hi guys, first post glad to be part of this forum even though I'm a Canon guy, I totally respect the GH2 for sharpness and price point. For me, I watched the comparisons twice, then did two screen shots per test (one when the door first opens, then of the close up couple when girl looks to the right). Then, I took a break, watched 5 more times, then took a day off. Came back to it. Let me just say that my original choices changed somewhat and I began to notice more subtly in the scene after viewing them so much. But then I tried to view them quickly as well. At first I did not like
