  1. DPing a cyc wall music video this weekend and will not have excess time to play with the 4.6k before then. We have two 256gb cards and will be able to dump footage while shooting on the other. That being said I'm trying to figure out the proper codec for the day without having to stop while we dump. We're planning on a 12 hour shoot with lunch. I'm pretty sure that throws RAW out the window but I haven't been able to find much info breaking down the differences in prores flavors. Can anyone break down the different record times for each prores flavor on a card that size?

    Thanks!

    Love the look of this!

    I'd love to grade something like this, but unfortunately it never snows where I live! Great work!

    Thanks man! When I get a little time I'd be happy to send over the footage if you want to play with it.

  3. I think you're right it will most likely sit at that price for awhile. Easily one of the best 1080 images out there! In act I had a potential client reach out recently who couldn't believe what he saw was shot on D750. And he owns an Alexa.

    I love the colors coming off that d750 ! Well done sir 

    Thanks man! Nikon colors plus Film Convert make it shine.

    It looks great. Good job. I have been so tempted to hit buy on a D750, but I just want to wait and see what gets released at CES first. 

    I think that's a smart move. Either way you're in a good position because even if nothing comes out you can there then D750 at it's current price is a great deal.

    To all those using Nikon..whos using a flat/nikon flat profile or are you guys just using standard/vivid profiles? I tend to shoot on Standard but sometimes I'll mess around with Vivid or Portrait which I find in combination with various fluorescent light WB settings can help when filming in mixed light to get a good out of camera picture. I do mess around with Flaat 11 and Cineflat but TBH unless I'm shooting outdoors or with plenty of light I don't mess around too much with Flat profiles. I shoot on a d5300 which did away with the fpn from the sensor (D5200 big issue) but doesn't have the nikon flat profile.

    For me I always shoot flat on the D750 but it's a different camera. Wether I'm doing something narrative or shooting a wedding The DR and gradeability on that camera with the flat profile works well with my work workflow so haven't paid much attention to the other profiles. I'd love to see what you're getting out of that guy.

  5. For now day for night is going to be out of the question because we have some long shoots and if we move them to the day were going to be getting some sweaty talent with the hot summer weather. LEDs seems to be the best option but I may need to pick up a Pixapro Mk II and or some other affordable LED optinons to go with the aputure.

  6. I have a night shoot that is located in a corn field maze and just found out Northern California has a law against generators in this area. Any thoughts on how to get by with my Arri 1ks? 

     

    I have the Aputure Amarans H672s set. But that wont be enough for a wide shot with about 8 subjects in frame. Any ideas on how to get around that. Would like to avoid buying more lights at the moment or pick up some Light Storms.

    thank you @August McCue !

    +15 mbl , -4 saturation, -3 contrast (NEVER drop the contrast lower than the saturation), -10 sharpness (slightly sharpened in post) and 0-255 luma range.

    lens used was the Contax Zeiss 50mm f1.4 AEJ

    Are you still using film convert for the grade or are you keeping the grade more minimal since changing to normal gamma?

    Have you tried using a C100ii with an external recorder? I imagine that Prores HQ and that camera sensor would create fantastic images.

    Yeah man, I was really loving the the dailies that I was seeing. Can't wait to get into grading them. I wish the mark ii was cheaper but having a NX1 for slow mo I think I could be fine with a C100.

  10. If you're fine without 4k and RAW the c100 is a great camera. Shot my first feature film on the mark ii and l freaking loved it. I think it's one of the only cameras that can cross over between the 2 different kind of shooting you do in that range. Still getting a professional camera that can output good color externally. I'm in the same boat man thats what I'v been leaning toward myself recently.
