In this case, this camera is NOT good.
Bad footage! Better upload another test! Right now, looks soft, no blacks and horrible.
Got some feelings during this episode out of the main story arc of GOT; I saw a metaphor of “modern warfare” vs “old heroic/individualistic war”. I felt it the most realistic episode so far, too realistic regarding war. I saw WWII heavy bombers, napalm and later, Arya with ashes raining: Hiroshima. Jamie and Cersei are hiding in a bunker that really has no protection against bombing.
Another realistic part is with the “good” leaders; one want’s to “liberate the people”, the other, does nothing to stop her. Reminds me Mao, Stalin, Pol pot, etc. It leaved me thinking the modern world -second part of XX century- crushes the old fantasy world. Reminds me modern war is devastation and dangerous leaders are the ones obsessed with the people. Frankly, I didn’t expect it. It is clearly very different from the whole story.
Conclusion; there is no need for the Iron Throne if you use bunker buster fire.
I’ve seen it in a calibrated good TV and it was too dark. You can do very artistic cinematography with silouetes, rim light, eye light, etc but if you have a mass of black and no difference between characters and background it just look BAD. Seems like one of those student films that shoot night scenes straight in the open with no light whatsoever. Besides, when I think the amount of money invested in the battle scene, extras, equipment, directing, etc, etc in such a top TV show to see NOTHING, it makes me thing I’ve been conned. Either is a stupid stylistic decision or there has been some big problem that had to be darkened. There are many night scenes in GOT in previous episodes that are not this crap. Very disappointed. Hope the Bluray edition corrects that.
GOT has a fantastic original material with all the details. The writers have been doing a great job adapting the books to a series, but this is more adapting than creating. Creating all this is the hard thing.
Too much distraction!
