agreed. when I first started, I was attracted to that milky blacks look, but now, I grow weary of that look. It's predictable and almost cliche', and I've moved on.
(BUT, some brides really like that Instagram look so...occasionally I'll do it)
yeah...this article seems to have been written by a RED public relations employee or something. We all get R&D and customer service, but this is so obviously lying and deception. This article is...why i'm probably gonna go ahead and avoid NFS forever now. Sad I guess.
hmmm...before I knew who Deakins was, and even before I got into filming, I found myself really drawn to his movies and cinematography. (again, this is before I even knew he was the DP, or what a DP was.)
So, for me, he objectively has risen to the highest ranks of excellence. The same thing happened for my appreciation of Andy Wallace behind the mixing board in the 90s and early 2000s.
Years later, I've grown to understand fanboyism and legacy over-hype, industry standing, etc. But, objectively, for me, Roger is who I keep coming back to for inspiration. I'm glad for his contribution and have learn so much from him.
not knocking on this LUT or anything but it's funny..after years of playing with every combination of LUT, picture profile, contrast adjustment, luminence range adjustment, master pedestal adjustments, etc etc etc etc
I finally set the GH5 to "standard" with no adjustments and BAM, there is a fantastic image. For me, i learned to sometimes trust the camera makers. They know wussup. haha.
yeah...no stabilization? the IBIS was 98% of the reason why I finally "upgraded" from the GH4. Interested choice. Especially since the logic mentioned in this article of "Panasonic assumes professionals will already be using gimbals and dollies etc" should also include "Panasonic assumes professionals will already be using proper lighting and set design etc" so therefore, improved lowlight is not needed. hah. But, I'm just a simple wedding/interview video guy, I don't do real video work, so I'm probably missing something.
This is all so true for me. I have many bags lying around that I thought were my "be all end all" bags.
However, I currently have the (of course) Peak Design Everyday bag, and again, I feel like this is the one bag to rule them all.
I respect people who still are using their old college backpack like it's no big deal. Meanwhile, I'm dropping $$$ on the fanciest bags ever and the end result is...I'm no better than them. hah.
