Ever play the Mass Effect trilogy or Bioshock Infinite? I regard those as the gold standard in cinematic gaming.
Yeah, I have pixel peeped at Nikon Z6 footage and have seen none of these aliasing issues in those videos. Is Z7 really worse? Somehow I doubt it. From what I understand, there is a sharpening post process on the Nikon by default that can be easily disabled. I'd be interested in a comparison once that has been turned off.
Looks like a sweet camera. Have had iffy results with new BM releases though, so may wait a year or so after release for them to iron the kinks out.
Also . . . why does this video look like it's in ungraded Log?
We'll see if this actually happens. Once upon a time, RED promised "3K for $3K," and we all know how that worked out. So I'll believe it when I see it.
Sounds to me like Canon is simply focusing (no pun intended) its markets. The D line is going to be targeted strictly toward still photographers, who perhaps do a bit of video from time to time. Very little R&D is going to go into the video end of things. Filmmakers should consider the C line instead, especially with the C200 hitting the market.
This is probably better than a half-assed 4K implementation (I'm looking at you, Sony alpha line).
I felt there were a couple specific identifiable flaws in the effect. 1) The neck motion felt a bit off. 2) Not enough specularity on the skin shader, so it felt too velvet soft. 3) the CGI rendering did not appear to have been shot through the same lens as the rest of the film.
If they fixed these, I think it could be far more convincing. Same deal with young Carrie Fisher.
