  1. I asked around because it seemed to be a poor man's cinny LUT (which perhaps film convert nitrate already is and with more options) and no one liked it at all. But I think there is more to it than that, you can read the white paper here where Arri discusses how it is meant to emulate a color negative image instead of a typical digital or reversal image: https://www.samys.com/images/pdf/ALEXA-Color-Processing-White-Paper.pdf So there might be more to it, but it's apparently pretty useless anyway. Did you notice aliasing with the S1?
  2. Thanks... weird... Well it certainly is green.
  3. Yeah, it's not cheap. Arri also had a similar mode on the Alexa that they discontinued, it was used when the Alexa was to be intercut with film. Anyway, thanks for the info on the cineon mode. Very cool.
  4. Interesting. That particular workflow is a bit over my head, but the cineon conversion reminds me of the cinny LUT here: https://www.thebrim.pictures/sucomo.html Seems really useful.
  5. *where do you go from the cineon conversion
  6. Interesting... where do you from the cineon conversion? Is there a good cineon to rec709 LUT? The normal emulation looks like magic bullet to me, yeah.
  7. Will the S1 power grades work for EVA1 and Varicam? Also is it possible to make these transforms into LUTs? Can't you export a power grade as .cube? Would it be possible to do a more accurate "film look" this way? I don't understand why FilmConvert doesn't really look that good to me, but the Brim does a pretty good job to my eyes and Arri originally had a special Log C setting meant to emulate film scans. It was problematic and they discontinued it, but the colors were a perfect math to 5219 I think. Log C now has its own look, a bit more like reversal than color negative imo.
  8. I agree with @BrooklynDan although IBIS on the S1 performs way better than I'd expected. And for the intended purpose of having a small camera that delivers a useable image it's pretty stunning and complements the form factor remarkably well. It's way way more usable than I expected and a pretty good option given a lack of viable alternatives for small form factors. But I prefer the Aaton/Arri 416 form factor or the Amira over the Red/EVA1/Alexa Mini form factor, too, and it's an issue with prosumer cameras that the form factor really makes no sense ergonomically. Too big for IBIS to make

  10. I've only use the 24-105mm L IS version 1, which was okay. Haven't used the V2. The 24-105mm is a more complicated design, it goes from wide angle to slight telephoto and it's full frame and a stop faster so it's entirely possible the STM is a better performer except you lose the 24-55mm range. Probably the image quality is really close from both. I would choose based on what focal lengths you need, the image quality from both will be great. I got the 55-250mm for $99 on Black Friday refurbished from Canon I think so at the very least it's (more than) worth the money... Lately I've b

  12. Anyone tried it? I think the Cinegon does but I prefer the Cine-Xenon's bokeh.
  13. Yes I think you're right. I was having a similar issue in 6K photo mode with colors blotching/banding, I think that is HEVC. And transcoding solved it. But I think you're right that the 150Mbps is h264. No idea what's going on in that case...
