Honestly, I watched the hateful eight and found that the 70mm medium is not necessarily adding to the story. I can see it working well with anything where you need go really wide and want little distortion (the 65m in the revenant is sometimes a touch too wide for my taste with the lenses el chivo used, almost like a supersized go pro or something, not a fish eye but certainly some warping) but in Tarantino's flick, except for the beginning the other two thirds of the movies could have been shot on 35mm and nobody could ever have been able to tell the difference... IMO at least
I'd like to know if they were shooting with anamorphics or some kind of adapter, some of the flares in the church but also the headlights of the car and some other moements are really beautiful and of the kind I haven't seen from spherical lens
Anyone else had to think of this scene: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3yon2GyoiM
I really don't get it... is the european market too complicated or simply worthless to consider? Netflix, Hulu, this - here in Spain I was recently considering an Apple TV but for what; we don't get any of the good stuff, but we do get NFL and Baseball channels nobody here in Europe will ever watch (or at least probably considerably less people the you'd expect to be watching a sport like soccer in the US) the whole entertainment industry can not be doing as bad if they do such a poor job reaching out to so many potential customers in this part of the world!
I just have to echo all the comments about the price, for what it does it should be more like 3k, right? Then I'd jump right aboard, it would really look cool on my proaim shoulder rig, and who knows, maybe magic lantern can hack it and unlock 4k! (sarcasm)
My point exactly! If I was to project their marketing image to, lets say cars Arri would be a bit like Mercedes and Red more like some sort of Hot Rod, it might be faster and look cooler, and it sure would be fun to have a ride in it on Sundays but if I needed to drive it every day I'd stick to the Mercedes!
