Ehhhh, the wifi is not really that big of a problem. Its more so that luminaire is difficult to create your own effects in. If they simplified that it would be something, but nobs are ehhh.
I know its sounds smart to say full color bit depth, but that also doesn't mean anything. 12 bit is a container of the possible colors that can be recorded. If the sensor groups different colors as the same color you cannot undo that even with 12 bit. It is possible to make different colors the same color, but you cannot take two pixels of the same exact rgb values and adjust one without adjust the other. It looks to me that BM has chosen to group the skinctone values of the negative into too small of a range, that even with a rec709 transform, subtle hue differences within the skin get lost. This could be how BM graded the footage, but that would be even worse though. I think the trick in the demo is perceived sharpness. They have made the perceived spatial fidelity (tech term!) really sharp that kinda tricks the brain into thinking that the image is life like even though the skin tones are uniformly unreal.
Happy to see footage from the camera but the test is a little lack luster. No shade on JB but I don't think he had the time to do a proper test. I don't get the over the camera light nearside for a day interior exposed above the ambient window light. That is textbook ehhhhhh cinematography at least for the current styles out there.
The lack of tonality and pigment is a little concerning but its a cheap camera so I guess you can't expect that much. Its funny some one said that theres too much make up. There actually isn't enough, the shine on the models is rough for that hard light.
this is dumb right?
Standard outlets in houses are 15A or 20A, 1500 watts would work just fine in almost any house. Also you don't have to build a circle. If you aren't using it for an eyelight, then 4 4ft light strips strips of plywood that can be put together to creat a 4x4 square would travel easily and produce the same exact quality of light.
