Why wouldn't I just buy a RED Komodo for a similar price (especially when you factor in having to buy the atmos ninja for this to work), and have arguably a better image? Sincere question.
no it doesn't. It looks more blurry as a still image, but as a moving video, it is the natural kind of motion blur we're used to seeing with normal film cameras.
So, which has the better camera for filming - if I don't care about the zoom. The pro 2? Or will the video quality on each be pretty similar?
I hear you.
My first thought, tho, was how nice this will be.
I direct, and I my sets (usually 15-30 crew), everyone crowds around the few monitors there are to see picture. And the reasons are often legitimate. Art department wants to know what is being seen and how. Hair and make up wants to know what adjustments they should be making. And etc.
How nice it will be when not everyone is crowded, looking over my shoulder, or the focus puller's shoulder.
But yes, I could also see it being a distraction for those who don't need to see it.
But that's just the thing - nobody gave David permission to make this film. He just went out and made it. He gathered his friends and personal money and did it of his own initiative. There was no gate keeper involved. You could do this too. The filmmakers that succeed are the ones who just make it happen
Seriously. Especially after Apple's new MacBook Pro announcement today. They're beginning to feel a little boring.
