I'm not very impressed by the way it handles highlights. For example at 1:54. But that could be grading...

14 stops are still not 22 stops that you can reach with HDR photography. Who says with raw was no more clipping?

Don't know if this was posted somewhere else already, cause I don't read everything:

What do you think?

My 2 cents: Silly story, some rolling shutter, apparently no noise problems.

saw this before....hard to tell anything from this....i can only look at this as a complete waste of time and money....light is horrible, flat, there is no mood, unless you like latin soap, every shot and set up looks unbelievably unimaginative to me, i feel bad about the actors, the story? is....what?why? who decided to do this and get people involved, was anyone paid to do this...i don't get it at all....
although i really don't like the grading either (again, no mood, no tone, nothing....) the image looks clean and crisp....
this could have been shot available light, handheld with a 5DII and it should have looked better....

Haha!

Yeah i tried to justify what to take away from this... The lowlight maybe... Who in the hell would think people want to see how video a "cinema" camera could be? ..lol.

A cunt hair of rolling shutter. But i've said it before, I probably wouldn't shoot "Cloverfield 2" with a BMC.

I haven't actually tried the footage yet. Busy with 12 or so projects to finish right now. There's an article here about it - [url="http://eyepatchfilms.com/?p=903"]http://eyepatchfilms.com/?p=903[/url]

This looks promising for those of us unable to afford a full Resolve Editing Suite but still able to shoot with the BMC. yes?
