  1. I don't know how it was done. I first saw this off twitter, and decided to post it here in hopes Andrew would have a look and see what he thinks. He might be using some sort of denoising app, maybe tweaking the master pedestal. He hasn't responded to questions asked on Vimeo, so we may never know.
  2. Don't know how this guy achieved this low light look on the GH4, but it's the best I've seen from this camera.
  3. Can anyone that owns this camera confirm that when you are setting a manual kelvin temp, that you cannot see your scene simultaneously? In other words, you're popping back and forth, in and out of a menu to see the effect of your kelvin temp change? The Canon's allow you to see your scene and adjust the kelvin temp on the fly, so I'm just curious about the Nikon. Thank you!
  4. I don't know, for myself, after seeing a fair amount of video shot with this camera on Vimeo, I'm really liking the image I see from it. I really can't imagine this not being a good enough camera for anyone's use, I mean how good is good enough, what are you shooting that needs something better? Most people that read this forum post their work on the internet, and this camera far exceeds that platform. Personally, I learned a long time ago to never wait till tomorrow, because tomorrow may never come. Don't waste your time waiting upon perfection.
  5. Are you being facetious, or in agreement, the Nikon D800's viewfinder isn't accurate? Personally, I don't use a viewfinder to shoot video, so what about the LCD screen, is that a true representation?
  6. The 'N' word? As in the racial slur? I've never seen it, is why I ask.
  7. You're right, Andrew, you need this site to be exclusive to a membership, as I see you've been infiltrated with people from No Film School, where alls they like to do is argue over absolutely nothing.
  8. I know enough. We can agree to disagree, no big deal. The size of the sensor does indeed have a major factor in cinema quality. A Vista vision sized sensor definitely has a cinematic quality. Who's bagging? I merely stated I was jazzed about having the opportunity to work with the Zeiss Otus. Read the post, Jack. A major clue that I don't own this lens, would be the line "no matter how much I like, there's no buying a $4000 dollar lens" Does that read like I own it? The only correct thing you've stated is, yes, you're correct, the Cooke lenses are a fantastic lens, and I don't own that either.
  9. It really all boils down to what you're after, image wise. I highly doubt you'll get a truly cinematic look from a M43 4K image. I like the Panasonic GH4, the image is stunning, but I'm not in the market for an image that's so sharp, it'll make your eyes bleed. I'll be on a shoot next couple of weeks with a Canon 6D paired with the Zeiss Otus 55mm. I'm excited to be able to work with this new Zeiss lens, the down side is, no matter how much I like it, there's no buying a $4000 dollar lens.
  10. Personally, I can't compare any 4K image that i've seen to a full frame sensor DSLR camera. There's really nothing to a 4K image, in my opinion, that is cinematic. 4K is all about resolution, and a full frame sensor just has a look all of its own. I almost ordered the Panasonic GH4, but after listening to some NAB interviews, I completely changed my mind. I'm definitely in the market for a full frame sensor.
  11. @Maxotics, As far as I'm concerned it's not your imagination, in fact,I think the D5300 looks better than the D800, but that's just to my eye. Although, I will say i've looked at the D800 for a long time as one of the best full frame cameras out there, but the price of it has always turned me away. Also, I've heard, and Andrew would definitely know more about this than I, but the word is with the 36MP sensor, you really need a good piece of glass to reap the resolution benefits from this camera.
  12. The Sony A7s is definitely an impressive camera, but to actually record 4K is going to cost you plenty, considering, if the rumors are close, the Atomos Shogun @$2000, the CFast card it takes @$650 for 64GB, of course you'll need two of those. You're right at five grand for all that, and we haven't got a lens on this baby yet. EXPENSIVE.
  13. The only other issue with the Panasonic brick is the battery situation, which makes the portability of that unit, cumbersome. However, hopefully NAB will offer a light weight solution to this issue. The other thing I wonder about is if Panasonic is ready for the massive ordering circus come this May. I know with the GH3, they weren't, as it took months to get it. Perhaps it's a supply and demand game, but for once it would be nice to see the demand met without a drawn out back order.
