I think everything is ugly about that footage. Blackmagic is inexpensive but the skin tones were always bad (I owned one). It's been 10 years since Arri released its sensor, how come nobody even got close to these colors? Why is it so difficult? Is this the reason why all these brands are focusing on the resolution and useless stuffs all these last years, because they just can't figure out how to make a decent color science as Arri does?
Anyway Red is doomed for a while. Better make some extra money before they close the doors. Red became what they fought against and hated 10 years ago. Hollywood almost doesn’t use them anymore. The big names Red guys were bragging about went back to Arri. Netflix is also taken back from them. The indies can’t afford them anymore but they have so many other cheaper solutions from famous or new brands. They can even get used full Alexa kits for 10-20k now. Why buying a Red these days? 8k? Most people don’t care, and for those who care there are many other more reliable 6k solutions, which is more than enough for VFX or resizing.
So nothing about the cheating and the lies? Wow .......
People are now switching from Red to Varicam to get the best of both worlds.
Red claims 16.5+ stops of DR for years. Every test I saw online shows that the Alexa is below that but beats Red cameras. The Varicam beats the Scarlet-W too and is said to be 14 stops by Panasonic.
Reading the comments on Jarred Land FB page shows that people don't really understand what this test really means.
I owned Red cameras and hated them. I think that most Red users never tried an Alexa or a Varicam in their life. Or they would understand why most talented DPs choose the Alexa instead of a 8k camera with sick looking skins, bad color separation/accuracy, and average DR and rolloff (in less than a year there will be a new Red camera and people will - as always since the Red One - claim that it so much better in term of colors, skins and DR although they think it's 100% perfect now, and it will still be below Arri's colors and DR). Yes, with a lot of work you can get decent result on a Red, but you start from gorgeous with an Alexa or a Varicam.
