6.5 hrs in from the launch and I see all the chat on all the forums.... no film school, cinema5D, REDuser and countless others. From the initial announcement of 3D, holograms, VR, AR and a 'rendered' end of a'metal block with big RED logo and heat sink fins' - but effectively announcing 'we have nothing confirmed or proven what it will do' nothing! Nothing from RED that actually tells us this 'phone' does anything more, than 'techy' phones have come to market with in the past and failed. Such hype ...... $1500.00 - are you insane. Tell me it shoots 4k with an optical zoom lens at 150fps and I will show interest. Until then it's just bollocks.....
So I've now just watched the 'Daylight' direct comparisons where they are trying to grade to the 'daylight sample'............Everything I said is true. (aside from Kino Flow - which was not ideal!)
Ok so my specialisation is stills/motion beauty photography and motion. I learnt my craft assisting some pretty spectacular photographers on the world stage where you would alter chemistry or labs to process your film. In this digital age I have become fixated about sensor colour rendition of skintone. I've shot with every sensor out there, stills and motion. I've never liked LED lighting for skin tone and this test proves it. Take a screen shot of the 'sunlight' daylight. Stick it up on your screen. Look at the whites (shirt) - they look amazing! Now keep that screenshot on your screen and run the video...... aside from the Kino Flo (and that is not great) they all look positively shocking compared to the ARRI 1K. I'm sorry but actually ALL of those LED look like sh1t! Forget the LED's and just take it on the chin, for now, that HMI or Tungsten remains the no1 light choice of source despite the weight. We are a long way off LED becoming usable. (just to repeat, forget the grey cards, light meters etc - just look at the 'whites' in the daylight then look at them with the LED - they just look like, murky, muddy sh1t!). Particularly in the 'whites' - get the 'white's' wrong and every other colour will be wrong!
Forget the speculation, all our posts are just 'bait'. Proof is in the pudding......let's just wait to see the announcement? Much more productive.
It'a great idea. When does this roll out to the UK?
Please don't tell me NFS have been paid for this and not declared it? I don't believe it?
