  1. This is a promo. Not a film. More than not commercial stuff is going to be more saturated and brighter than you’d prefer. That said the first one is too much. If I were you I would crush my ego and say, “Oh. That’s great. I totally see what you want here. You’re definitely going in the right direction. However, there are a couple shots where it may be too much. Now that I know exactly what you want, would you mind if we dial those few shots back a touch. I think we’ll end up with exactly what you’re looking for and appeal to a wider range of preferences.”
  2. Maybe, but I’m not sure they have too much to worry about. $2500 is waaay different than $1300. Personally, without seeing footage, I’d still choose the P4K, and that’s not even based on price. I just like m43. 6K means more data. Def faster cards. And then there’s the xtra $1200. Maybe my mind will change once I see footage, but I’m thrilled with the P4K still.
  3. I agree. “Here is the camera. Here are the specs. Here is the price. You can buy now. But no sample footage.” Strange.
  4. Not that I’m a triggered snowflake, but the double standard is too frustrating to stay silent on. I get that many here hate Trump. This is ok. Freedom of thought and speech is healthy. So in that sense, fire away. But check this out... I couldn’t stand Obama. Still can’t. But imagine if I called him “the brown man”. Triggered much? See my point? Even though I’m ALL for freedom of speech, I’m also pro civility. Be respectful. I would never use the above phrase because I know there are various opinions and various sensitivities. It’s disrespectful. So I apply the golden rule and play it safe in my words so that we can dialogue and still remain civil. Otherwise a 5 page thread on a new camera has turned into a political thing and...
  5. You are correct that BM traditionally uses NAB for major hardware announcements, however BM actually announced the first URSA mini Pro a month before NAB. Seeing as its roughly a month before IBC it’s possible a newer pro version of the P4K could be announced. But I don’t think so. When they announced the first UMPro they first teased with a dark image of the new cam. So I’m guessing just firmware updates to the P4K. But here’s to hoping for a surprise.
  6. All of those are very nice, but that last one is perty. Really like the natural film like colors.
  7. 2 Timothy 3:1-4 (ESV) 1 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, For many, the situation our world finds itself in is not a surprise. Still sad though. Jesus is the answer my friends. John 16:33 (ESV) I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world." By the way @Andrew Reid, this is the second time in a week I’ve heard about this book, which is interesting for a book over 30 years old. I think I’m going to take the plunge.

    What is a moment anamorphic? I haven’t heard about this.

    Shot with my iPad mini last night. No pp.
  10. My understanding was that codec was a derivative of “COmpression DECompression”. So the video signal needs to be compressed and then decompressed. It is also my understanding that some codecs are compressed/decompressed in a way that is more suitable for cameras and editors. And some are more suitable for video players. The trade off being that the smaller files that video players handle more easily are more taxing to compress for cameras and more taxing for an editor to decompress and edit on the fly.
  11. I only have this device, but I can’t see it at all.
  12. Could you point out what you’re seeing? I don’t see it. I’m watching on an iPad mini. Not a big screen but not a small phone either. Footage looks beautiful to me.
  13. Regarding the Red patented compressed raw problem. Could it be as simple as just not marketing it as raw? Instead calling it a “dynamic codec” or something. Would be interesting if @CaptainHook or someone with real world knowledge of this could chime in on what make compressed raw an infringement. i bet the line is blurry.
  14. Just throwing this out there. yesterday I rented and watched Venom. I noticed some red clipping in the night chase scene. More than once. None of the other colors. Reminded me of the P4K. Was shot on Arri and Red. Not sure if that was a fault of the camera or delivery. Recently saw a black hole in a major studio production. Can’t remember which it was. It was super brief. Probably no one else noticed.
  15. One more thing. For better or worse I’ve decided to stop doing what everyone else is doing. Everyone wants attention. Everyone wants to build a following. Everyone wants to preach. I want to be different. I’ve decided to do the work. I’m going to make films. If i have any success at all let it be for that. As fun as a side project would be, if it takes away from filmmaking it is simply resistance that needs to be vanquished. (As is participating in forums all day.) You recently finished a film. Great job. Keep it up.
  16. My 2 pennies based on no first hand experience and a decent amount of second hand experience. Develop a brand. Determine your niche and demo and then stick to it. Refine sure. But I think consistency is key, both in production quantity and branding. By the way, you need a draw. Personality. Cuteness. Awesomeness. Something uniqueish and engaging. Reach out to non competing but overlapping creators. There’s a name for this but I can’t think of it. Ask for things, help, shout outs, whatevs. The more others talk about you the quicker you’ll rise. Sometimes they’ll say no. If so ask them when they’ll say yes. They give you advice. Do it. Then ask again. Bottom line, partners are key. Do favors for them. Maybe produce a free video. Paying to advertise is very effective..... occasionally. Stick with it. Stick with it. stick with it. Do all of this knowing that Google or Facebook or whatever will most likely change its algorithms and screw you right when you’re making it. Bummer. From there you’re on your own.
  17. I think it’s pretty awesome you’ve got a write up in newsshooter. Great work. Don’t let the glory get to your head.
  18. Was there an official update that addressed highlight roll off? I hadn’t seen that. I’ve been waiting all this time for @Sage to help me with that. 😜
  19. Where did you get that? I have been looking for almost that exactly.
  20. What happened to Jon? Been wondering where he went to.

  22. Download and register Resolve 16 Studio. Use whichever product serial number you were originally given. Install Resolve 16 Studio and use your Resolve 15 activation key. Done son.
