    I worked for camera Rea to companies in the 90ís and for the rest of the world, and certainly Australia / UK it was all NP or BP90ís. And really mostly it was NPs....

    I think this is why I have an aversion to owning cameras.

    They define who you are and what you can do.

    I’d hate to be hired because of a camera that I own.

    I don’t think you’ll get any weirder looks than if you pull our your hulking big F35 :-)

    Who cares about what’s respected on set !!

    Nothing formal.

    They are liked internally because they’re a pretty neutral / straight lens. They were one of the first to specifically do telecentric designs too. (Not these but the Xenar)

    Iíve usually found RED pretty average at those frame rates too. RED tend to use an aggressive OLPF and theyíre optimised for the full sensor.

    When you window down, the resolution always feels...

    I guess it depends on if you like the default look. A few years ago they added “extended” video to sit in between VIDEO and FILM as record and monitoring modes. I think extended looks pretty great...

    This is kind of beyond a joke isn’t it ?

    Even reactivating a sub forum here would be better wouldn’t it ?

    Fair enough.




    Itís hard because I can understand why you would want to hold onto a camera you really like. If it was me, Iíd keep trying to use it, but itís also a case of diminishing ...

    BMD service usually do the right thing despite the bad press so if you’re worried then you can usually get any issues taken care of.

    It certainly would be easier if the G2 (or whatever) wasn't always being graded to look like another camera.

    What's great about the operating though is that the camera moves with the character's internal interest. A pan to the train door closing. A pan to the noises that show you what's stopping the door...

    The general rule so that a film breaks even at 4 times it’s budget.
