Django Posted June 2, 2022 Share Posted June 2, 2022 Agreed, I have an R6 and it can spit just as good IQ as any latest-gen Canon/Sony in 10-bit Clog3. At least give it a try before giving up and switching systems. If you haven't even shot with it in Log yet and have no grading experience, then you really haven't given the camera a proper chance to prove it self yet. What lenses do you have? Also having ND filters or even something as basic as choosing the right time of the day in relation to forecast/sunlight and avoiding harsh backlit shots etc can make or break footage looking video/filmic. Let's analyse the (FX3) wine commercial you referenced: notice how all shots are done before/after/during sunset (aka golden/magic hour) and on a cloudy overcast day. good location, composition, shot diversity, camera movement, tight editing, synced music, adequate grading that fits the LA beach scenery, faux 8/16mm cuts etc. Plus you know good looking smiling stylised actors living it up with their favourite beverage. that's quite bit of work/experience to get there. every shot is prepared, calculated and staged, not just point & shoot random people at random time/location with an expensive camera. pro video is hard work, having the right tools is just 101 prerequisite.
