    Mark my words: this won't happen. People aren't making TikToks instead of traditional film content because they were waiting for the right technology to roll around to decide it's worth doing. If the incredible democratization of filmmaking technology we've seen over the past couple of decades wasn't enough to get them involved already, they lacked the time, energy, or interest. The truth is we who are interested in traditional filmmaking are part of a shrinking demographic.

    That's what I'm saying though. Is this terrible new aesthetic a sort of meta take on the film industry right now? The machines have formed a poorly-shot green screen,  ultra punchy color hellscape for humans to live within which mirrors the state of much of cinema now.
     
    Or is this just an ugly movie. Lol.

    Thanks! Appreciate it!
    Yes, sound isn't my strong point at all. This film is entirely one man bad. I've done camera, sound, interviews, editing, colouring, lighting where necessary. The only thing I didn't do is the music, which I palmed off to my brother. I'm planning to finish the edit in the next 2 or 3 weeks, and then will try to send it off to be mixed correctly... but budget is a concern. So far, it's cost me nothing as I had all the gear used before I even thought about making it.
    As for contrast and highlights. I'm sure they are linked. The garden has such a dense canopy, I can shoot at f1.8 without an ND. The problem is then, that when some sunlight can come through, it's totally blown out. You can see the difference when he walks through the gate. At one point he's exposed correctly, and the next he's in total darkness, and the difference is only 1 or 2 steps.
    I don't really like the trendy washed out look, and wanted deep blacks, but perhaps I've gone a bit too far? I can reign it in no problem 🙂
    Thanks again for the feedback!!

    Bumping this, because I'm not sure it needs a whole new post.
    The second trailer is now finished, but I'd love some opinions before it goes 'live'. All comments and feedback welcome and encouraged!

    And a screen worth more than 10 dollars that you can see in daylight.

    Matins 2 reacted to Andrew Reid in Nikon Z Fc - are you OK Nikon?   
    Nikon today launched the Z Fc. Formerly the Df retro plastic camera, Nikon has improved the concept with even more plastic and a smaller sensor. You can feel the retro authenticity during each buzz of the power zoom and the flappy plastic concealing a port used for live streaming. It's every film camera shooter's dream Minox Nikon! --- What did Df stand for anyway? What does Fc mean? Fruit cake? Football club? Are you OK Nikon??

    Manual focus.
    Then there's the build quality, the rolling shutter, the unfixable red dots/focus pixels or stripes using certain settings. I wouldn't say those are deal-breakers compared to its secondhand price.
    There's also the fact that it's 2021. It is not a discreet camera.

    Hey guys,
    Since the middle / end of last summer I've been making a feature length documentary. I have 3 more shoots to do, and then it can be finished. However I wanted to share a small teaser I've made in anticipation of sending it out to festivals etc.
    I'd love to hear all feedback, comments, criticism etc. Please don't be shy!
    Shot entirely handheld (apart from one shot) with BMPCC4k, Viltrox speed booster and Sigma 18-35.

    I remember when the first 1" sensor smartphone came out (Panasonic CM1) was around the same time the Samsung NX1 arrived.
    It's still worth keeping an eye out for on eBay if you want a smart compact camera...

    Takes some great shots in RAW mode.
    In many ways it's still the best sensor in any smartphone for RAW at least.
    I recently re-bought one for 100 euros.

    1/1.12" is not exactly 1" yet, though wasn't there an actual 1" Sony sensor for smartphone rumored?

    Unfortunately, the low and mid-tier camera market is stuck in the mud.
    Quality wise, Sony is the McDonald's of the camera industry.

    I suspect that the two primary reasons the image sensor market is dominated by Sony is because of: (1) shady business deals between Japanese tech companies and (2) a lack of competition from outsiders.
