Also, for those of you using the Frame.io panel in Premire CC 2017, don't upgrade to 2018 just yet if you're working on something crucial that requires the plugin, it's not working in 2018. Frame.io is aware of the issue and working actively for a fix. Just a head's up.
Nice. I was just complaining to myself the other day about this very issue. Thanks for sharing.
Nope. The footage, the camera and drone are all amazing in itself, but you put a good story together, like this film did, grade it as such, the V.O., the climatic music, an attractive woman riding a dirt bike, the cool vantage points, the cine bars, and your average audience is not going to care, or even notice.
There's no reason this couldn't have been shot even on the Mavic Pro and been just as compelling.
Be kind to your bank account.
This is an exceptional article, besides the fact that many of us in the industry knew this already, but it's nice to hear an established DP reiterate the point. The human eye, or more so the brain is built the way it is built. Without talking about cyborg technology (which is more real than most in the public know about) there's no biological upgrade that's going to take place in any of our lifetimes. What this means is that resolution past a certain threshold (ultraHD in this example) is considered "diminishing return". There is no perceptible advantage to going past a certain resolution as it will not be processed by the limitations of our biology. Just as we will never be able to perceive IR rays with the naked eye.
I think this is important to keep in mind when these camera manufactures use 6K and above as a marketing selling point. If people stop buying into gimmicks, it will force camera manufactures to focus elsewhere, like improving on other features like workable AF for example. It will also drive the market to lower, more reasonable pricing. Suddenly, Arri, RED, etc., will have to compete more in the prosumer 4k market, which I personally feel is a more innovative space.

Not the optimum workflow, but it will save your ass (and computer) every time.
