I don't get it. AI can be leveraged to do insanely interesting re-colorizings and it's 2021 and only Colourlab is doing basic matching which is boring and the results are not that amazing honestly.
I have searched for papers on colorization for motion picture and it's a topic not that populated. The PhDs at the universities should explore this area. Especially trying to match the analog holy grail.
That thing was popular? Wut? The image still looks like bland RED stuff.. if you shoot with a RED sensor it's going to look like RED.
Looks like they totally redone the color science in favor of a different hopefully more filmic look. This is actually great news. If you want to go after Alexa you have to have the right look right out of the camera.
This comparison was better done than 10s of others out there.
You DON'T want to test camera in a controlled environment studio with 5600k lights.. this is what all the camera manufacturers like to calibrate their camera to as it's the laziest thing ever so of course cameras will perform their best there..
you have to put them out of their comfort zones.. strong daylight, tungsten light mixed with fluorescent/led/halogen, strong colored lights that show how colors saturate to white in the burned areas, mix of streetlamp colors (where RED notoriously goes to disgusting greenish yellow colors which are a pain to remove in post.. I know one colorist on a movie said - fek it we're keeping it that way because he couldn't help it properly)
Anyway... 2000's era stock analog > Alexa > F35 > F65
The skin tones of this Canon in incandescent light and many of the street light types is atrocious. Yellow, juandiced mess
It looks exactly like something out of a 5D Mark III with MLantern RAW... I mean it's the same exact color science + better dynamic range.
So a big meh.. Canon shot themselves in the foot... again... C700, C500 and C300 not good for cinema.
