I have shot and produced several National TV commercials, short films, many short films, music videos, and countless corporate/promotional videos.
I bet you could look through every single post that Robert Hardy has ever written, and find out that he's somehow linked the subject (whatever that subject might be) back to his favourite person in the world Emmanuel Lubezki. We get it...you like him!
Just a note regarding what he says at 1:25...the negative fill doesn't 'reflect' black...that's not possible. You can only reflect light...not the absence of it. Negative fill decreases the amount of light being reflected back onto the subject by blocking and absorbing light. That's why it a creates higher contrast. Cool video though!
Most freelancers don't buy Arri cameras. They rent from rental companies. Freelancers/Self-shooters who buy Arri cameras, rent them out to make their money back. There is no reason for a student to buy this camera, so I wouldn't worry about it. Both this and the Dragon look like amazing options for aerial photography.
Baby steps in convenient 3D exhibition.
At least they're trying!
Robert, I get a small incline that you like Chivo quite a lot...
In fact, I'd say that you may officially have a man-crush. I think that you've written more articles on Chivo than you've written articles hehe.
I'm looking forward to seeing the movie here in the UK
In this particular example, the GH4 looks a little washed out, and is lacking in detail (see vest and star patterns) For me, the RED seems to have more depth in this example. The RED also seems to retains more detail in the highlights, which can be seen on the curtain. Strictly from a tech POV the RED wins out in this instance. But TBH, it's like asking me what my favourite flavour ice cream is. I like Vanilla, but you may well like Strawberry. The same goes with your choice of camera. Consider what you like, what you want, and what you want it to FEEL like. I wouldn't generally choose RED cameras any more (I shoot national TV commercials mostly) due to my indifference on the colour science in the sensors (with the exception of the new DRAGON sensor, which looks interesting although I am still yet to shoot with). Give me an Alexa, and it will win out for me every time for Cinema and Drama work. For me, RED works for certain genres and styles. All great technology at the end of the day.
