    I dont sell wedding trailers with music. I sell full docu cuts of full wedding days that are to big to put online.

    I could just as easily had uploaded to youtube and let youtube give the credit to the artist with no issue and the video is demonetized either way.

    That just speaks to your experience level. Good luck with hawking irobot, eagle eye and cell phone wedding shoots. I'm good on my side and not worried about it.

    People will always pay for someone to focus in on that aspect of a wedding if they want it done right no matter what the picture/video capture taking box is. My focus is documentary style wedding production and cell phones or fixed ceiling cams cannot make it through 8 - 10 hrs a day of video recording through different environments and locations. Even taking photos would't work. Imagine someone with a cell gimbal phone invading the alter the space of the bride, groom and pastor just to get a close up of the wedding rings. I'd slather that type of customer experience competition every time. By all means have at it....more differentiation for me. It's like to see AI and Robots endure following a bridge and groom around for 8/10hrs a day in multiple locations indoor and outdoor on weddings shoots.

    Im not sure many here actually shoot many weddings. In my market its laughable to think robots and fixed security cams can match what I can do with other humans. Today or anytime soon in the wedding video market.

    It's going to take alot more than a fixed camera in the sky to accomplish what I described. Further more wedding venues like this will never install cameras around the property. https://www.annesdalemansion.com/

    I'm not worried about automation at all. For AI to displace me it would need to be able to hold a camera and follow a bride and groom around on foot through different environments (indoors, outdoors, hotel to venue, up elevators, rooftops patios, etc) from the start of the day through the ceremony through the reception. Fixed cameras in the ceiling in one venue will never be able to do that nor will they be able to track or cut to different subjects (brides maids, grooms man, family) with any level of confidence. Ai won't know what's important to focus on if something impromptu happens. Being able to read human cultural nuances like an actual human and respond with emotion intelligence to choose a particular shot/subject focus is not something Ai will be able to do anytime soon.

    Yes, it will be quite sometime before a robot can move about places with a camera as a floating shooter getting shots and tracking a subject in a dynamic enivornment like a wedding. Way to many variables.
  11. I've been really wondering lately.....where exactly is all this 4k/8k high resolution stuff supposed to be consumed? Seriously there are not many places at all for it. With mobile taking over everything thing I'm starting to feel we are wasting time chasing higher resolutions. YouTube (bitrate compressed 4k) - 70% viewers are mobile - Mobile only supports 1080 - 4k+ only on desktops(30%) Vimeo Pro (bitrate compressed 4k) - Supports 4K through upgraded service option - 4k only on desktop - Mobile HD only Facebook - 90% of Facebook’s daily active users access it via mobile - 1080p only on desktop - Mobile HD only Instagram - 100% mobile - Supports 1080 uploads - Mobile HD only Amazon Prime (bitrate compressed 4k) - 4k for original content only - Non originals/indies limited to 1080 uploads - Mobile HD only Netflix (bitrate compressed 4k) - 70% viewers on TV - Supports 4K through upgraded service option - Very slim chance of getting your content here Hulu - Removed 4k content last June Theatrical - 2k DCP Direct Digital File from computer via hdmi connecting (Non bitrate compressed 4k) - 4K Projector - 4k/8k TV Ultra HD blurry disc writer - N/A for consumer purchase
  12. It still produces a great image. Below is RAW 12bit upscaled to 4k in davinchi resolve.
  13. A reference for anyone looking sharpness and clarity. C100 MKII 4K upscale filmed at 60fps exported to 24fps in davinchi resolve. EOS Standard Profile with the Canon 70-200mm f2.8 II I was quite surprised at how good the footage turned out. Very action cinematic to me. It looks even better when in slowmo.
