You shoot mixed races together and you had better have some damn good DR. New smartphones are doing better than they really are because of stacking and HDR. But they don't always work so that is a touch and go option. I am surprised how far we have come video specs wise but overall, I don't think we have moved as far as we think, look at the earliest BM cameras. great DR for the time. You still now have to buy some big ass, expensive as heck camera to get great consistent DR and great midtones. Yeah, I keep saying this but no-one wants to hear it. We had the OG BMPCC that shot RAW internal, had 13-stops of DR, and was under $1000, a decade ago. What we have now - lots of cameras that barely improve upon this spec, except in resolution. At the time there was the OG BMPCC (the camera we had and could afford) and the Alexa (the image we all wanted). The Alexa had barely more pixels but staggeringly better quality pixels. What did the manufacturers do? Basically zero improvement in pixel quality, but now we have 16 times as many of them. *eyeroll* BUT.... say that around here and the "progress is progress" people just shout you down. Andrew was right about us getting what we deserve.... and what we got was manufacturers that just bamboozled people with BS and then everyone swallowed it. Even with Yedlin proving that no-one could even see more than 1080p in most situations. osmanovic and webrunner5 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
