  1. The dummy of cinematography opened his mouth again?? He's an ok cinematographer but as a person he sure lacks a lot... C500 too should have blown Alexa out of the water according to him.. other cinematographers just laughed
  2. Just to make myself clear - I was only talking about BMCC and BMPCC. Not the BM4K or the URSA - haven't seen any strange biass toward certain colors in RAW from BM4K. I spent days upon days with BMCC and BMPCC to find that the blues always pop out strangely together with the oranges without me wanting this effect during daylight shots - I just pushed the saturation slightly and bam I could see the blues/oranges getting too much attention. It drove me almost insane - maybe it's the sensor characteristics (doubt it heavily) or maybe it's the color science. This did not happen on any camera I use
  3. I'm pretty sure it's the color science that they built into the camera. To sort of give you a ready to go "teal&orange" base .. but it's pretty botched if you ask me and imho one of the reasons why people are in 95% of cases not able to produce a nice colors with the BMCC and BMPCC. AJA too seems to be doing everything they can to botch the picture before the person has an oppurtunity to work on it. heh so much for RAW when you're only getting bayered data but with already destroyed color information thanks to not so great "color science"..
  4. Yes the colors aren't any good for videos - good for photos but not for "cinema". F5/F55/F65 and F35 are miles ahead in proper color science for moving imagery (even though the A7S has a technically more advanced chip).
  5. 99,5% the same? ROFL Well that's some bunch of ugly and smelly bollocks for sure.. you're probably colorblind or just way too biased. And when it comes to experienced crews... well of course if you can erase the shortcomings of many cameras with enough lights but that's not what we're talking about here. We're talking about the picture straight out of the camera, with average lighting, with mild color correction. Alexa can do magic even with less than perfect lightning and that's why pro filmmakers love it - the colors just never look wrong and the dynamic range saves the day in a lot of cases
  6. Some people even say that when a camera records raw, you can get the colors any way you want. Such bs it makes my head spin.. most of the color corrections made in the cam make it impossible to recover even the original color information back - it's lost forever. I really wonder what BM uses in their BMCC and BMPCC cameras - as the look they have gone the way to simulate some of the Kodak Vision3 features (the blue channel is a suspect) - but it ends up in a very big mess. Also It's really astonishing that the only company which gets it right is Arri and to a small degree there was a succe
  7. Canon is the honey badger of the DSLR companies.. it just does not give a ....
  8. Does it really matter? They're all about being "disruptive" and I bet there's nothing comparable to this in terms of features/price comming out this NAB. If the color science/calibration is tasty enough (previous 2 BMC attempts sadly sucked) this camera might be the next best thing. The law is that the footage should look already very good right from the cam.. it should not require 10 hours of work and 50 of nodes in Resolve. This is what Arri did and hit the jackpot. Even the old Red camera footage looked quite nice and filmic/artistic/cinematic off the cam.
  9. I'm right now at a grading studio with our guys trying to finish a deadline and during a little break (procrastination as usual) we decided that from these pics we would chose the Kineraw as the one with the most useful colors.   The most visible thing is that Both 5D and BMCC fail at capturing the color of the Candle. Plus 5D has alot of funky unnecessary colors that need to be tamed which is extra work.
  10. I'd say it's mathematically impossible to match the footages in all situations - the easiest situation would be a scene without with a nice flat 5600k lighting (or a nice outdoor overcast).    The pro cameras are pro for one thing - they look pro in most situations even before you start doing color corrections.   But man am I so glad that the ML Raw beats the crap out of the overpriced Canon's C series.
  11.   but let's not forget that there are alot of things happening when the analog signal gets converted to digital on CMOS which we can call the manufacturer's mojo.There are always some necessary calibrations and etc going on which result in vastly different outcomes. So if you get raw from specimen A and raw from specimen B, they are never equal which also means that alot of the information that was in the analog stage got lost or changed forever and so with normal color-correction procedures you can never get what you want - you would have to re-colorize the picture by hand.   Plu
  12.   the video sure looks cool but let's not get carried away too much .. F35 is light-years ahead of 5d MIII in terms of cinematic color science.. not to mention a global shutter and a few more stops of dynamic range ;)
  13. For me it is either this little chinese camera or the new 4K BMCC. I just love the color rendition on the Kineraws - it suits my tastes almost perfectly (the dynamic range ain't top but I can live with that no problemo).. but who knows how the 4K BMCC will look like. Keeping my fingers crossed it will be better than the Kineraw cam.
  14. [quote name='kirk' timestamp='1347901134' post='18372'] 8% usable shots from the GH2? Sounds like you have a lot to learn :P [/quote] I think I wrote "perfect image". Sounds like you have trouble with semantics.
  15. [quote name='EOSHD' timestamp='1347796538' post='18237'] Yes cinema Pierre, like that screened at the Skywalker Ranch for Coppola. You don't know it doesn't have a flat profile yet. You don't know if it looks better than the GH2 yet because you're judging massively compressed web footage at 7Mbit - not ALL-I 72mbit 1080p. Muppet post of the year? [/quote] 72mbit will magically change the "panny" colors and noticeably widen the dynamic range??? Aaw c'mon.... but hey... I didn't say this footage or the camera is shit. I
