silvertonesx24 Posted December 3, 2012 Share Posted December 3, 2012 Like I say if a 2.7x crop is good enough for Darren Aronofsky then 2.3x is good enough for you. Super 16mm films have won multiple Oscars throughout history and nobody complained about the lack of shallow DOF or the film stock being ludicrous! Do you realise how silly it sounds? I'm not sure how this is relavant. Darren Aronofsky has million dollar budgets, million dollar talent, million dollar locations backing him up and helping him work around problems. I'm as tired of the 5D 50mm 1.4 focus-searching look as anyone, but I'll admit it's saved me more than a few times when trying to give a cramped dingy doctor's office a quality cinematic look, which most clients associate first with shallow DOF and next with good cinematograpy. I was very tempted by the camera, but this was my main consideration into deciding to invest $4000-5000 (BMCC plus mandatory computer and storage upgrades) in quality glass instead. I'll wait for v2, or something from a different manufacturer. It'd be nice to have a camera dedicated to ProRes 444. Also I agree with the sentiment that this blog has gotten way too defensive of BMCC lately. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
