Yeah, Andrew Reid once compared a GH4 to an Alexa. -______- Nonetheless, he does find interesting camera finds and make comparisons from time to time
"I think it's because DXoMark tests still images. The Red can shoot stills while the other cinema cameras aren't designed to." All it's doing is literally taking 1 frame per second. It doesn't have a mechanical or global shutter like any other stills camera (even with the faulty motion mount). You can pretty much do the same thing with EVERY OTHER cinema camera. Just take 1 frame. The Alexa would hands down destroy it in DR and lowlight....but DXO doesn't do their test accurately, and they really go through hoops with their specific process. It pretty much favors higher resolution cameras.
Wait, I thought it was only photograph film they were introducing like rolls of 36 rather than 400 or 1000ft rolls? Are they talking about 8mm and 35mm for photographs
8K isn't everything. And 35mm 8 perf film could be scanned at 8K. 6x7 film frames have about 36k of resolution. Film is still better than digital in different ways.
wow, so my comment was deleted. kewl
You can use anything for professional filmmaking!!!!
