These high-resolution cameras are overkill! I mean 2.6K? Who needs that?!
(To be clear, "2.6K" seemed like a good opportunity to make fun of all the 4K naysayers)
THIS is how you disagree on the internet. Well done chaps.
Honestly the BTS of people/productions whose work you admire can be the most illuminating. But hurlbutvisuals.com, rogerdeakins.com/forum2/, lightsfilmschool.com, khalidmohtaseb.com/blog/ and more have solid info. Sometimes forums like REDUser and BMCUser have good contributors with solid setups, too. Dig, dig, dig!
Exactly! It's all about what gear you use, everyone knows that.
I'll get the usual all out of the way: Psh, no RAW, 4K slow-mo, XLR inputs, LUT support, and 4K is so overkill, plus 6K is where everything's headed, this camera's overpriced because GH4, A7s, F7, Canon sucks and go check out my new film!
Each person has their preferences, and I in no way dispute what you're saying--I managed RAW 120fps from the FS700 on my late-2012 iMac. I used the same basic workflow that Sahit mentioned. But it all comes down to preference and workflow--using temp 1080p files has its drawbacks.
