Been creating still images for the ad world for some time now.
Great and valuable test! But I agree as others have pointed out, the distance of the diffusion from the light and subject makes a big difference that isn't accounted for here. Many diffusion materials can be made to look similar to each other by simply changing the ratio of distance to light to subject. But that said, this is still a very valuable test and shows what each does when simply swapped out and the light and subject remains the same. I especially liked what the 439 Heavy Quiet Frost did for warming skin tones! I practically live with 216 on just about everything, but after seeing this test, I'll be adding a roll of 439 Heavy Quiet Frost to my kit!
Hi Tom, I'm seeing a significant amount of magenta in the sky in the Fog in Formby piece. Is this what we can expect from the 4.6 or can you attribute it to anything else?
The BTS still shot you posted shows no magenta in the sky of the same day and conditions. Did you do a grey /white card custom balance before shooting or is this a preset WB?
Why did you provide them the units in the first place?
Nothing says the future like spraying shit into the air!
"Puts the focus back on creative photography". Are they kidding me?? This makes taking photos an even lazier process. It's fun and all that, but no way is this going to foster original creativity. Saving a poorly executed shot after the fact, maybe.
A few issues here and there (some FPN and morie), but overall this looks excellent! I'm hoping the 4.6k version I have on order will completely seal the deal and deliver out of the ballpark performance to at least land in the Arri parking lot.
