  1. Okay. If you can keep your set-up and shoot time down to an hour total and if you are only using two or three fixtures, then it is probably better to use batteries. Bring spares. LED fixtures might need to be fairly close to the subject when shooting in the daytime.
  2. You have plenty of work light? Are you shooting nighttime exteriors 1000km form the nearest town? What is "IV/PTC?"
  3. If your LED lights actually draw a total of 600W, you might suffer continual battery management/charge anxiety. Also, when you kill your battery-powered set lights in between takes and in between set-ups, will you also have a separate battery-powered work-light running? On the other hand, a genny with a 600W constant capacity is not that big (but it's good practice to use a genny that is rated at twice the anticipated power draw). You can keep it and a gas can in a large plastic bin(s) to protect your car's interior from gasoline/oil. By the way, gennys last longer than batteries
  4. There might be a way to attach a speedbooster. This is a really interesting thread!
  5. Yes! The EOSM with ML raw is amazing, and @ZEEK has a great eye! EOSM ML raw videos are constantly appearing on YouTube. This guy also does nice work with the EOSM.
  6. Perhaps it was interlaced (60i), and then deinterlaced to 30p. There are probably plug-ins/filters in those programs that might work, but I am not familiar those apps.
  7. Look again. I am not trolling. I have presented facts, often with detailed explanations and with supporting images and links. These facts show that Yedlin's test is faulty, and that we cannot draw any sound conclusions from his comparison. In addition, I have point-out contradictions and/or falsehoods (or lies) of others, also using facts/links. If my posting methods look like trolling to you, please explain how it is so. It doesn't sound like you are actually interested in the topic of this thread. No need to apologize for your shallowness and fr
  8. Ffmpeg has a "pullup" filter, but removing pulldowns can be done in ffmpeg without that special filter. Mencoder and AviSynth can also remove pulldowns. Several NLEs and post programs have plugins that do the same. However, the pulled-down 30fps footage is usually interlaced. Can you post a few seconds of the 30fps footage?
  9. What were you hoping to achieve with your personal insults of me below: I didn't mind any of these blatant insults nor the numerous sarcastic insinuations that you have made about me (I have made one or two sarcastic innuendos about you -- but not as many as you have about me). I don't mind it that you constantly contradict yourself and project those contraditions on me, nor do I mind when you inadvertently disprove your own points, nor do I care when you just make stuff up to suit your position. However, when you lied about me making a fic
  10. I thought that you were just being trollish, but now it seems that you are truly delusional. Somehow in your mind you get the notion that I am "criticizing Yedlin for using a 6K camera on a 4K timeline" from this passage: Nowhere in that passage do I mention Yedlin, nor do I mention a camera, nor do I ever refer to anyone "using a 6K image on a 4K timeline." Most importantly, I was not criticizing anyone in that passage. Anybody can go to that post and see for themselves that I was simply making a direct response to your quoted statement: Even YOU did not refer t
  11. No I didn't. What is the matter with you -- why do you always make up false realities? Also, I already corrected you when you stated this very same falsehood before. I never criticized Yedlin for using ANY particular camera -- YOU are the one who is particular about cameras. The fact is that I have repeatedly stated that the particular camera used in a resolution doesn't really matter: Once again, here are the two primary points on which I criticized Yedlin's test (please read these two points carefully and try to retain them so that I don't have to repeat them a
  12. As I answered that question before, I have already demonstrated that it is easy to achieve a 1-to-1 pixel match. However, I will add that there is no sense/logic to your notion that I should perform such a test myself, just because I have shown that Yedlin's comparison is invalid. I have demonstrated that we can draw no conclusions regarding the discernability of differing resolutions from Yedlin's flawed demo, and that fact is all that matters to this discussion. In addition, there are several comparisons which already exist that don't suffer the same blunders inherent in Yedlin's
  13. Yedlin's test isn't really applicable to any "world," because his method is flawed, and because he botched the required 1-to-1 pixel match. Again, the type of camera/sensor doesn't really matter to a resolution test, as long the camera has enough resolution for the test. Resolution tests should be (and always are) camera agnostic -- there is no reason for them not to be so. What does that notion have to do with testing resolution? There's not much to a resolution test other than using a camera with a high enough resolution and properly controlling the variab
  14. Well, you seem to live in a world in which you make up your own "realities" about what I am saying and that's okay, but posting insinuations based on those fantasies is a whole other thing. Regardless, such fantasies have no relation the fatal problems with Yedlin's test. However, just to make it clear, I never suggested that chroma subsampling should be avoided in resolution tests. If fact I implied the opposite by pointing out that 4:2:0 cameras are more common than the Alexa65, and thus, according to your logic, we shouldn't use an exceedingly uncommon camera such as the Alexa65:
  15. What I get is that there are some hair-brained notions floating around this thread on what cameras can and cannot be used in a resolution test, notions which have absolutely no bearing on the fatal flaws suffered in Yedlin's test. No. I rejected the test primarily because: And again, the test doesn't "involve" interpolation: Incidentally, Yedlin's test is titled "Camera Resolutions," because it is intended to test resolution -- not post "interpolation." A 1-to-1 pixel match is required for a resolution test, and Yedlin spent over four minutes explai
