    Could be useful for VR camera work, but at $400 it's a bit pricey. $200 would be spot on.

    Laika shoots it's features with dslrs on small moco rigs. Stills, not video. They are major motion pictures.

    Having worked with BMCC, Alexa, and Red in post on several projects, the only advantage Red and Alexa have over the BMCC is high speed. They have great support, but at 10-20 times the price, I would...

    The one I got from EVS on Friday works great from a picture quality standpoint, but battery life is so short. I ordered a kit form Amazon that includes a separate charger and 2 additional batteries....

    Agfa and Fuji both quit. Kodak is it. Very few film labs left too. Hopefully the Black Magic Film scanner will help bring it back a bit, as the most expensive part of shooting film is scanning it.

    Saw all of the 3D HFR today and about half of it again at 24FPS. Wow, what a difference. The comments about it looking like 70's Dr. Who or Hitchhikers Guide is correct for some specific scenes, but...

    Love the resolution and the global shutter, the DR is a little bit of an issue.

    As far as too much detail is concerned from 4K or 5K, it hasn't been a problem in the past. Anyone remember Far and Away? Or any other film shot on 65mm or 35mm Vistavision? Vista Vision has twice...

    Yup, red shift in the shadows. Fix it in camera so it's not a headache in post.

    Keep in mind that lenses and the field of view depend on the size of your sensor, so just picking a lens, or a camera won't work. You have to pick the lens for the camera so that you can get the...

    Put another way, your 28 has a closer minimum focus distance than your 50. Wider lenses tend to. When you close the 50 to f8 or greater you extend the near end of your acceptable focus to reach the...

    They shot in Seattle, my guess is they planned for overcast weather, in which case the F3 should have been fine. The sunny exteriors killed them, it looks like 8bit in the trailer. The trailer may...

    I'm not sure the flickering light on the kid works, you might want to add more orange light to the overall scene in post, perhaps some flickering on the trees to to match the boy. The roto should be...

    A T-50 stapler and black cloth from the fabric store. Bolts tend to be 5' wide, overlap it. Visqueen is shiny, you may get weird reflections from lights off the folds in the material.

    Epic will have more dynamic range, so will Alexa, but the FS700 does a great job. If you are shooting pyro, you want high DR, and honestly for that film is still the best. Digital clips and looks...

    A couple of other things to keep in mind, compression and banding. You are going to be underexposing a lot of areas, and depending on the camera that can get ugly and noisy fast. The smoke will...

    I'm very curious to see what kind of body it ends up being a part of, and what kind of compression. It feels like a concept car at a car show at the moment.

    If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. The design, form factor, functionality, modularity, etc is all a knock off of Red. It's a Red Duck. If I'm ignoring anyones posts it's...

    During WWII, both sides used search lights to light up enemy aircraft at night, 4 miles up in the sky. Totally doable. Carbon arc searchlights are very bright.
