Yeah I've looked at about every NX1 shot in existence and nothing compared to the wide variety of shots Olympus has provided for their new cam on day one. I'm looking for pro shot clips from the NX1 that might show it's usefulness for Indie film and sadly have yet to find one.
The problem with Samsung is they've, to date, not released a single cinematic demo on their cameras. Look at the brand new Olympus camera - great indie filming demo right out of the gate showing the power of its built-in stabilization aimed directly at us Indie filmmakers.
All I've seen from all the Samsung users is the requisite ducks in a pond, kids and babies - nothing that would attract indie filmmakers.
The 65% grossing less than 500k is an alarming figure. That's gross! Meaning if your distributor is feeling a tinge of honesty that day maybe you'll get a token check. I've found getting distribution is easy, seeing any cash beyond your initial advance, if you're lucky enough to get one, is the key. I'm hoping filmmakers distributing their own films digitally will will be the future. Getting 90% from sites like Vimeo, Yekra etc. may finally give the content creators control and not the distributors who almost always end up with the lions share of any indie film.
You may be right - it may just be the colorist. So many camera "testers" just stick a LUT or plug-in on a clip and call it graded. I see no reason why the FS7 at 10bit 422 shouldn't be able to achieve natural, Alexa-like skin tones, I just haven't seen it yet.
Love your Open piece - great framing and colors! Please prove me wrong and show me some FS7 and A7S stuff that looks that good. I'm not being an ass here, I truly want to use the Sony cams on my next feature but haven't seen any nice skin tones at all with either camera.
Yep California. But regardless everyone looks like a zombie with the Sony Log stuff and they color time to get some life in the skin and turn the teeth and whites of the eyes beige. Hopefully someone will find a formula that works...
