My dear erstwhile member can you please stop attacking John Brawley now. I have long since given up on camera forum arguments so might not be completely up on who is right and who is wrong-evil /

I like the pictures. A lot.  This camera will probably replace the micro cinema camera for me as it’s not much bigger and is much easier to work with.  I didn’t feel as strongly about the 4K

What a shame. Who are these "deep state" BMD insiders that are here pushing an agenda ? Myself and Hook.  Who else ?  What do you guys think, there's a plot and conspiracy ?  You guys don't wat t

Looks fine to me.

I don’t care about motion cadence, bcz I can’t see it unless shutter angle is off by a lot - and it’s impossible to judge on 99% of monitors and televisions anyhow, ‘cause they’re not true 24p anyhow. hehe

That said, I like me some slo mo.

It's entitled 'Lowlight' so wasn't shot to judge motion cadence.

 

Saying that, there are plenty of shots in there that aren't slow and they look good to me.

Well that may be true,  but I'm sure everyone is also interested in highlight roll off, skin tones,  dynamic range, colors... as well as looking out for the infamous black sun.  

I've already decided to purchase this camera... but always nice to see footage while waiting the next few weeks to months for the cameras to start shipping.

That lowlight footage still has way too much midtone detail for my taste (look at her pores), but that's something that's adjustable in post with this much data. It's just a shame they haven't managed to get it like that 'out of camera'. Still a great deal though.

According to the description, he added midtone detail.
Also, RAW looks quite harsh out of this camera and has moire as well as aliasing. ProRes looks way cleaner.

I don't know if he added midtone detail ... sounds more like he raised the level of the midtones from that description?

Is there a fast way to do this in resolve, like with a slider, and not masking shit out? If so how?

You could qualify the face, add a tiny bit of blur and then add some grain to the whole picture - that's most succesful in my limited experience. You could of course just add a fraction of blur to the whole image and then you wouldn't have to add the masking step, but 1) qualifying (maybe add a large mask) a face is super easy and quick, and 2) without a qualifier it will probably look less subtle because it affects the whole image.

EDIT: If other people have tips and tricks for making footage less sharp and more 'creamy' I'd love to know it, always looking for that with non-Ursa footage.
