    AccordingToMe got a reaction from nahua in Lucy - amazing color: shot on Sony F65   
    Oblivion comes to mind. That is a movie I can watch just for the visuals and the soundtrack. Shot on F65:



    There are many beautiful shots in this movie. Naturally there are many computer generated images as well. But I remember sitting up straight in the theater during the scenes around the provisional lake cottage.

    AccordingToMe got a reaction from Chrad in Andrew has been spot on about Canon   
    The upside is that when choosing a camcorder, it doesn't really matter which one you pick. It's not a camera system like a DSLR where you need to match your body to your lenses.
    For anyone happy with Sony's or Panasonics' offerings: go for it! Why wait for Canon?

    AccordingToMe got a reaction from noone in Canon 1D C vs Sony A7S 4K - dynamic range - preview   
    About 11 usable stops for 1Dc seems consistent with Adam Wilts review from March 2013. When he stretches it in post he gets to 13 stops. Doesn't really matter.
    The point here is that Canon Log is a beautifully designed picture profile specifically for 8bit after carefully evaluating both technical as well as psycho visual aspects with many screenings before experiences DPs.
    There is a DR craze going on with the false notion that a camera is supposed to capture everything from the darkest shadow to the brightest highlight. Welcome to amateur hour.
    Just as the photographer/cinematographer carefully selects his/her framing, he/she also carefully select what light to include. Blown out highlights should be beautifully rendered. Light falling into shadow creates drama.
    It should be obvious that both the Canon 1Dc as well as the A7s should be able to create satisfactory images. The error will fall on the operator. The 1Dc captures the image internally to CF-cards with no fuss, which is nice.
