I'm curious as to how they're getting raw data from the sensor. The ASICs in the phone do a lot of the processing in a "black box" that exposes only a limited set of controls and information to the developer. That's why the iPhone hasn't been usable as a precision color-temperature meter.
Maybe Apple changed something in the iPhone 7 to allow greater access to the image pipeline. That doesn't counterbalance the asinine removal of the headphone jack, but at least it would be ONE real upgrade.
Why is the Reply function broken?
It's 2017, folks.
Meanwhile: HOW are "Varicam LT codecs are 10 times better than raw?" Are they better than all the ProRes codecs?
And remember, that's not the only problem. There's also Sony's reliance on bullshit media and ridiculous file structures that make using their equipment an expensive and error-prone pain in the ass. Not that Red's media aren't proprietary and overpriced, but at least the recording is on-board.
A $30K camera that can't shoot raw without an optional external recorder and uses junky, proprietary SxS memory cards. I'm not faulting its image quality, but Sony continually seeks to undermine industry standards and under-deliver for the money.
Why doesn't Reply work?
Unfunny, stupid JUNK.
This site sucks.
This article is FOUR YEARS OLD. Why is it being promoted TODAY, in 2017?
This site is amateur hour.
