Re: Filming Hunts a spec hunters worst nightmare

I started this thread nearly 9 months ago and I wanted to update on where I'm at and a few new questions I hope someone could help out with. I tried to post a reply to my original post in the link below, but I'm not sure it made it to everyone as I still have to search for it. Anyways below is also my post with questions and as always thanks for your help!

http://nofilmschool.com/boards/discussions/filming-hunts-spec-hunters-wo...

First off I've spent some time behind the new a7sii, dvx200 and they're both pretty solid for what I'd need them to do and grading them has been a task as my current setup has a tough time with the 4k files, its doable but takes some major patience.

Unfortunately though I have a hunt I will be filming in May and the budget just isn't there quite yet for new gear, so I've been testing out my d600 a bit more and I feel I have a good handle on my past focus issues. Mainly because I've determined that as much as I enjoy helping out the hunters during the hunt, I need to simply just focus on filming.

But what I was wondering if anyone here could shed some light on a few things:

1. Does anyone have any experience using any of the flat picture profiles for nikon? ie Cineflat, Tissinflat etc.? I've got divinci pretty well figured out for what I would need it to do, so if theres any good tutorials etc to help that would be awesome!

2. Ninja Blade vs Ninja 2? ProRes 4:2:2 on both and I definitely can't spend $1000+ on the assassin or shogun. But is the screen size / resolution really a big difference between the two? Any one of them better at handling high low temps? I'd like to get the absolute best image out of my camera and I feel that this will definitely help!
