    In most of those examples above it is just the orange & teal grading in action.

    Although doing nuanced warm and cool shades in one frame is indeed the hallmark of a nice image, in my opinion.

    Nuanced tones like cyan and good white balance are one of the traits of the 1D C and what separated it form just merely a "very good" 4K camera at the time like the Samsung NX1.

    So it isn't about 10bit.

    It's the white balance, colour science, and sensor.

     

    It's not quite that simple. You can't add what the camera doesn't capture.

    You can change hues and biases but if the baseline capture is flawed it gives you a TON of time consuming work to do AND never looks as good as a better file.

    Meant to type "can't" on the phone. 😁

    you can't just add cyan to any footage make them look high end.

  2. Just dropping this here with all the R5 buzz:

    RED Komodo sensor was co-designed with and manufactured by Canon, it's literally an APS-Cish crop of the full frame sensor on R5.

    I imagine rolling shutter won’t be great for either the r5 and r6. Cinema lines instead. Although I hope it won’t be as bad the the R. It was a deal breaker for me. 

    R5 will have Canon's fastest on-chip ADC from 1DX III with readout speed at 174Kp/s @ 12bit, compared to Sony's current gen of 180Kp/s.

    With this data, the 45MP sensor can scan DCI 8K at 40fps so rolling shutter will be around 25ms.

    Tariffs ended yes, but the product categorisation still exists, changing digital stills camera to video camera requires assigning new serial numbers to every unit sold, it's not possible to do this.

    Bummer that there’s no full sensor height Anamorphic mode. Looks like even the “full” frame mode isn’t FULL frame.

     

    Would be nice to have full sensor height anamorphic mode, but the vast majority of anamorphic lenses are designed for S35 coverage.

    Does anyone know the mm height of the sensor being used in S35 Anamorphic mode?
    If it's 18mm with the firmware update I'd be happy.

    15.7mm

    yeah I wondered this too..  but usually in their tests the compressed codecs win out for DR because they already have pretty optimized NR happening.  and I’m not sure if Canon’s CRL has the same kind of highlight recovery feature as BRAW.. but would have been interesting to at least see the raw results to compare.  I guess he said they were rushed so maybe that’s why they didn’t.

    Since the Alexa was tested using ProRes codec for 14 stops of DR, it's only fair to test compressed codec for all other cameras as a standardised metric.

    I’m really curious to see if Canon’s new DGO (Dual Gain Output) technology in the C300 mark III will finally crack the DR monopoly that Arri’s ALEV III dual gain architecture has had.

    C300 MK III DGO only scored 12.8 stops using ARRI standard.

    For reference:

    C300 MK II: 12.3 stops

    C500 MK II: 13.1 stops

    Maybe conceding sensor design and manufacture to a competitor with a competing camera line wasn’t very smart? What other companies do CMOS?

    Fairchild Imaging (BAE Systems)

    Samsung.

    Sharp?

    Maybe it’s time for them to go shopping somewhere else less they keeping sucking the toes of Sony.

    Sony Semicon is years ahead of the others, and the only one capable of providing enough volume Fujifilm requires.

  9. Corporate BS.

    They wanted to put a new sensor in X-H2 but Sony Semicon, which is their "boss", is dragging them down.

    Regarding X-T3 firmware, the code is easily transferable from X-T4 due to the same hardware (apart from IBIS). What they are really considering is how they should do it/which features to drop so they don't hurt X-T4 sale.

  10. Wide angle lens + IBIS are known to cause those corner warping wobble, it's from perspective change caused by sensor movement (the wider the more amplified),  It happens with GH5 as well.

    Unfortunately NLE rec709 monitoring thru dedicated video card is totally off in firmware 10.3 vs firmware 10.2. I had to downgrade in order to be able to monitor the output signal. Values on waveform monitor and other meters are correct but image on screen is off with reduced dynamic range and very dim.

    When output is recorded and viewed in NLE values return to normal and legalize switch activated recording shows  correct signal values is the on screen image that is off. Unusable for monitoring NLE output.

    Check the Ninja V monitoring setting, some default settings were moved around/changed, I didn't notice any difference in NLE output monitoring.

    It's actually a backwards terrible solution. Instead of properly displaying and recording the Full Range it converts it into legal range, throwing out data.

    Haha no. It's just a flag in ProRes metadata, no data is ever thrown out, not before or after this update.
