The angels are coming! THE ANGELS ARE COMING! All this while I watch attack on titan... Fantastic.
I really don't care about the article without the answers of the questions you just asked.
I have been using the raw module since it was first compiled. I shoot a short using the 14 bit raw option, amazing results (but the data rate is not for the faint of heart).
Back then, it was impossible to lower the bit rate, since it is too much taxing to the processor. Now, we can tell the camera to produce different bit depth before reaching the live view, allowing us to archive what this post is about. So achieving 4k 24fps would be posible if we lower the bit depth back to 8. Lose the color to gain DR and resolution? Why not? I'm already happy having 10 and 12 bit options, as well as having the option to change the resolution for anamorphic preferences.
This is huge. Some how I was reminded of some magic lantern developers. I can't wait until the day when helium sensor cameras are so old that I can purchase one for under 3k on a local best buy.
I'm already trying everything under my power to do anything. That's why my job description says all. If Jebus notices that I exist one of this days, and I'm able to make my projects, I'll let you guys know.
How ironic, I have been trying to do exactly what he is describing for almost 9 years now. And I am amused of how empty, souless, dead, people are inside. Some times my frustration is so big I could see everybody burst in fire in front of me and not feel anything.
I keep trying anyway.
