I clicked on the video ready to hate it, but there are some good viewpoints in here. I kinda feel like the title is clickbait, but if the title had been, "grade how you like it (or how the person is paying you likes it) and make sure you don't see any technical mistakes." I probably wouldn't have clicked on it, and the title would have been too long. Thanks for sharing.
Sorry this is a little after the fact, I had a similar issue with my d700's I found that it occurred when I manually updated the nvidia graphics firmware. Caused some issue in how davinici used the d700's. On a whim I did a fresh reinstall of OSX and then DID NOT update the NVIDIA firmware. This might be why you were able to eliminate your problem by using an Nvidia GPU. Or it could be something else entirely.
In addition to being incorrect about the specs for thunderbolt, as already mentioned, akitio released a thunderbolt 3 pcie enclosure at least a month ago. Bizon buys these and puts a psu in it and supplies them with ripped off code and then charges the customer twice as much. So I guess technically they're the first dedicated egpu box though the ability has been around for months.
Deakins knows what he's talking about for how Deakins shoots. He is one of, if not, the biggest names in cinematography. He can take the time to massage lights into the right place because he has the time and budget.
Nearly every DP I've ever worked for would prefer to do this, but when you get into the lower budgets and even TV you simply don't have the same resources. At that point being able to change LUTS or having a DIT that you trust to be able to manipulate the image as needed becomes paramount. That's the great thing about these articles that people forget. Deakins is saying why he does what he does but that doesn't mean that we should all do exactly the same thing.
Yeah, if only digital technology had advanced any in the past 10 years, it's really a shame...
Speaking of which, I have an f3 on eBay right now if anyone's interested...
I think the thing is with the sony stuff you have to figure out how to get your money's worth out of it. Which is to say quickly. DSLR's are nice because when they become outdated video tech they are still pretty good still cameras but with a "pro" camera like the f3 when it became outdated it was pretty much just "not an f5". That being said I just did a stunt shot with the f3 and an odyssey 7q and that footage still looks really great (even if it's not 4k!)
