Completely agree, for documentary in most cases less is more.
What are the film you are shooting in Belarus? I was recently on a commercial shoot in Minsk and got to know some interesting characters from local hip-hop/graffiti scene I'd like to come back to.
Ehm, are you suggesting Sony colour science is better? Panasonic colour is alright. For the Super 35 look you can use a focal reducer. Any lenses can be adapted easily.
Probably won't be able to match A6500 AF tho -- for those who need it.
So, a computer helped to analyze footage.. That's not even close to editing the trailer.
Of course, they did. It's for the people who won't care, or who work on stuff where it doesn't really matter.
True, and they also record a backup track at lower gain.. Still, not having any control or even visual feedback on what's happening, I wouldn't feel safe.
