Nice little camera.
But they really need to get their colour science better. I'm not a fan of the jaundice-yellow skin tones. If they had a Log profile, might be better.
Image stabilization is pretty damn awesome though!
Under the "How to enter" section, it states:
"Please note that the projected run time must be less than 25 minutes."
So 25 mins is the limit.
I love the colours, dynamic range and natural light capabilities of this camera. It's great to see some more footage in the field, so thanks to everyone who's testing and uploading.
I can't wait to have a play with one of these bad boys.
Sony F5 and FS7, C300 mk II, Red Scarlet-Dragon, Blackmagic URSA 4.6K, Sony A7Rii and A7Sii, GH4 - there's a price and look for everyone amongst these guys.
That actresses video was one of the first I've been able to watch streaming on Vimeo. I reached a point where I gave up trying to watch Vimeo videos unless it was necessary, because I'd literally have to play them, mute the sound, and change tabs to let them buffer. Otherwise, if I'd hit play and then pause to let them buffer, they wouldn't pre-load as if they knew I wasn't actually watching it yet. Annoyed the bejeezus out of me.
Hey Tom, what were the settings you used for Fog in Formby? What was your exposure, and what were the detail settings on the camera? Seems almost too sharp for my liking for some reason.
But I can't say how grateful I am for having some 4.6K footage to see finally! I've been waiting to see more from this camera. The early stuff that was put out honestly blew me away.
This film looks amazing, and the trailer is incredibly provocative! I've told a bunch of my friends and we're planning a movie night later this week to watch it.
Kimberly, thanks for the insightful backstory of the film. I love your approach, and I particularly like films from people with divergent backgrounds to a standard filmmaking career. A quick question: Using a painting as a reference for visual tone, how did your DP interpret that? Did you guys already have an established rapport and shorthand, so they just 'got it', or was there some test shoots after to nail a film interpretation of that?
Oakley, great article and great Q&A. These pieces and spotlights on films that might otherwise slip under the radar really help to make NFS stand out for original content.
