Cinematographer and camera and lighting nerd and amazing stand up comedian.
Amazing test! The Kino Flo Select and the Cineo and the F&V are my favorites! Great work! Thank you thank you - this saved me a bunch of money and time!
I think it looks really great- especially the night stuff - and I love the grain in it. I do wonder how this $28,000 camera stacks up against the $6,000 Ursa Mini Pro. I have an ursa mini 4.6k and I am loving the image out of it and the ergnomics and workflow and everything. The menu system on the Ursa is 100x more simple than the C300, and unlike this C700, it allows you to load luts easily into the camera.
Game changer. This will change the face of using color on modern lower-budget film sets.
That Lane 1974 still is gorgeous!
As an owner of the Sony F65, Sony shot themselves in their own foot. The F65 I think is the best looking digital image of all time, yet the workflow and the battery usage and size of the beast and data rate ended its career in the high-end world. And it's a shame, cause the workflow now is super simple and it has a mechanical shutter!
This is a wonderful test - thank you!
I think someone else should do a test - with both cameras at their native resolution - RED at 1250 ASA and Alexa at 800 ASA to test dynamic range. At 800 ISO, if the red helium is already more usable in the shadows, that gives it more stops in dynamic range below key, and then imagine it at 1250 ASA!! I imagine it will pick up at least a stop of usable dynamic range in the highlights and still keep exposure in the shadows - and become a very useful tool.
Having a clean low-noise 1250 ISO camera is a very useful camera for small productions, for low-light night work.
I would be more interested in real-world night-testing with this said.
In terms of color fidelity and skintone - just from watching the video - I think the red is the winner.
But in terms of inherent resolution and motion cadence, the red for me is the winner.
All of this is subjective. And, also, for the record, I was banned from REDUSER.net TWICE.
