  1. Okay, guys, it's important to remember that he's a pharaoh first and foremost, not a filmmaker. Let him have crazy ideas sometimes, who's he hurting? Just be impressed he's adapted so well to computers, and be thankful it's not another thread about Ra the sun god.
  2. You are clearly a big meanie pants. I was going to say Silent House, but assumed people had actually seen Birdman. Just in case you haven't seen it, it's in a Birdman style. I'm not sure blackmagic would be thrilled their new cameras have an indescribable quality that makes it feel different and new age. Iphone and gopro suck. But your words have been marked
  3. what else is analogue and simply carried over from the past, that we don't need to use as a crutch anymore? Or gives a broken charm to cinema? SHOULD we be making films at 120fps? Why are we even talking about frames? It should somehow be an actual moving image by now. Or we should aim for such high dynamic range that we can see the coil in every bulb before clipping? Are anamorphic lenses just left over? Get rid of any lens character, crop for the aspect ratio (why do you even want a specific aspect ratio? What are you trying to emulate?). Is sensor size just left over? Most sensors are desig

    Sorry, maybe wasn't very clear. Both of those are Andrew's clog. The one labeled "clog ungraded" was a frame from t3i video, the other is a jpeg photo.

    agreed, but i spent like 3 minutes with it, and the others were in the same setup. if it was day, i'd have scooted 2 foot over to the window

    purchased for my t3i just on the off chance it would work alright that compressed. or i could have some fun in jpeg and see what a 1dc would be like when i get one in 50 years. but actually liking it a lot! was comparing to my dialed flat profile and "vivid skin tones" (which is also really nice, though i think it may white balance oddly, a few kelvin clicks differently than anything else). enjoyed grading it more than my dialed flat profile by far. still can't get that file as nice. Thanks Andrew! Artifacts, but maybe no more than usual on this thing... (also, there's an actual pattern t
  7. The 5k rolling shutter improved over the 6k. The 6k terra performing the same as the kinemax, not improved
  8. Well if the 6k still has golden 3k (more DR than the 5k is specced to have - and I would assume less rolling shutter than the 6k mode?), or if the global shutter switch causes more real world issues than sports mode, it could balance out. We've never seen this type of global shutter/rolling shutter option actually working yet, right? Plus rolling shutter could have been improved in the 6k terra, or the 5k could be just about as bad. And 6k is still more resolution than 5k. if that much is needed, that's the option. And the 6k is a more tested sensor. Forgive me if I missed some news, hard to k
  9. Not trying to defend canon, but how many cameras reeeally produce the spec resolution? I feel like every downscaled 4k looks better than every 1080p, etc. And also, if the number was accurate, what resolution do we need? I heard even the 1dc 1080p crop mode is upscaled a little, though not positive about it. Impressive that something lower than 1080p can be considered great today.
  10. Maybe the question is what do you feel like you're missing out on?
  11. So we're honing in on the over $500, below $1000 range..
  12. Maybe? This still impresses me for $500 it would be an amazing camera.. you can see where "good" might balance out to
  13. For Tangerine, they let the phone's limitations define the style. It worked surprisingly well, and sometimes you could forget it was a phone. Wide angle, steadicam, oversharpened, limited DR. Kind of grindhouse lowfi and in your face. The climax worked out pretty awesome because of it. There also seemed to be quite a grade on it and lens flares. But I only watched it once.. not sure all their tricks. Anyway, for most stuff, even "worse" image quality is what I'll prefer if it means a bigger sensor, better focal range, better lenses (or worse - some character), easier full manual controls,
  14. do you want a camera that's basically the d5500, just with some more video features and ease of use? willing to pay a bit to get it? or are you just looking at other affordable cameras that could compete with some differences and trade-offs? I'm not sure what the options are with an external recorder or monitor on the d5500, that could be interesting, you'd need to research that, but I think it could be ideal for you a c100ii looks like a really similar camera, with more features - and for more money of course. the image and files could still feel like home the a6300's 60p might
  15. Guys, come on. If Anley Kubri can get behind the 5div, we can too. I for one can't wait to see 00 Space Ody
  16. sorry if I didn't quite follow, sounded more like film vs tv to me, maybe because binging is the only way I watch shows. It's addictive, just not as worth it as a quality film, I'd say Keep in mind I said I was embarrassed that I watch Pretty Little Liars Great point. How did we get from Vines to this? Probably helps that every show you binge has a million subplots
  17. Haven't seen either of those, but I've heard good things, I'll have to check em out. Yeah, I love everything by Cassavetes
  18. It draws in a large audience, no doubt, maybe even more than a film these days, but I don't prefer it or anything. I've heard some filmmakers say they're "switching" to tv.. and that's just baffling to me. Maybe it can work that way for comedy or if you include mini-series as tv, but for me the best part of a film isn't the viewing experience or budget or anything, it's the ending. The Graduate, Reservoir Dogs, A Woman Under the Influence, The Departed, Primal Fear, Drive, etc - the ending is what makes the whole thing count, and shows you they were competent the entire time. And tv shows

    Life vs Film

    I think a lot of films are realistic and don't feel a need for a character to change, or the bad guy to get caught, or the couple to get married etc. It's a difficult discussion.. I'm sure there are movies you could watch without obvious motifs etc, from objective camera angles, that show things going on, and when you step back and look at the scene you don't really see a reason that couldn't have been a real conversation. There are probably several films in everyone's life you could make if you cut out the irrelevant, boring stuff. True Adolescents (and tons of films obviously, only looking a
  20. This is probably more adorable than helpful, but.. thinking outside the box.. https://www.amazon.com/Micover-Stickover-Mini-Universal-Windscreen-Laptops/dp/B006IWYH4Y
  21. Also, investing in Filmconvert to see if it helps, even if you never use the a7sii again, will still probably be great for whatever you pick next
  22. Dave's slog settings in his first post here - Got a lot of positive responses
  23. Upload some footage or screengrabs
