    DVX200 and Green Screen?

    I've been eyeing the DVX200 for a little while now, and I'm wondering how it might hold up for greenscreen shooting. On paper, it should be dynamite: Real 4k resolution. Sharp lens without much CA...

    I'm curious about this statement. The DVX200 may not do 4:2:2 internally, but it does do 4k. 4K even at 4:2:0 still provides twice the chroma resolution of 1080p at 4:2:2. And even at 1080p, 4:2:2...

    I really liked the way my old HMC cam operated, and the idea of a camera with similar usability that can achieve a big-sensor aesthetic is intriguing (and in 4k to boot). I'm wondering, how...
  6. You may be right, but something that seems a bit...

    You may be right, but something that seems a bit odd is if it is a "native resolution 4k sensor," then why does it need to crop the sensor for 4k recording, but not 1080p? The released specs show...

    If I read the slide right, it's only 37.2mm equivalent field-of-view when recording UHD at 60 frames per second. Apparently, they have to window the sensor to get a 60p readout at UHD resolution. ...

    Interesting. First, lets try to rule out the obvious. Is it possible that, in the course of filming, something is bumping the focus/zoom ring or the zoom rocker switch? I know I've accidently hit...

    Go with progressive. It's possible to use interlaced footage for green screen, but you'll get easier and better results from shooting progressive, all other factors being equal.

    Definately try before you buy if you can. The HMC has a pretty solid AVCHD implementation. I've played around a bit with the HMC40 recording to a Hyperdeck Shuttle, and the difference between the...

    Much closer than the Roland Emmerich 'Zilla IMHO.

    Agreed. It's so overused that it's past the point of cliché and is bordering on self parody at this point.

    The use of Ligeti is kinda cool, though. Combined with the voiceover, one could get...

    Actually, the RX10's internal codec doesn't have any more aliasing/moire than uncompressed. The aliasing is coming from how the data from the sensor is downscaled to fit into a 1080p frame. It...
