    That was a wonderfully shot film with the intellectual weight of an average student film. Was expecting something more from the story, but I forgot most DSLR films don't have stories, just lots of visuals. So Docs ride motorcycles. That's something I learned from watching House, MD.

    I stepped away from this video happy to see two things:

    1) the motor cycle footage seemed to have very little wobble and skew, which is fantastic.
    2) DSLR's didn't change the fact this film still had a proper crew. They still used lights, they still did it right. I applaud them for that.

    If cinematography wasn't infinite, I'm sure I would have found the end by now.

    Looks dark to me. Wondering if this camera lacks low light capability.

    I thought is was a little soft on the wide shots. Three years after the 5DMKII and I was expecting more detail. Maybe an external recorder would help (if they recorded internally).

    Footage looks great. Too bad they couldn't of thought up a decent story to go with it.

    It also included two of the most common student film groaners: 1) main character waking up to a blaring alarm clock and 2) gratuitous shots of people smoking.;)

    Wow, you guys are a tough crowd!

    I thought the visuals were pretty good, but considering the size of the crew I wouldn't have expected anything else. As far as "story" content was concerned, I know their main concern was Probably to show what the camera could do rather than the writer or director.

    I don't think I'm gonna get rid of my hacked GH2 after seeing this, but it still looked pretty impressive.

    To be fair, all the amazing poignant shorts and narrative works are saved for Film Festivals and for Awards seasons, so expecting anything on that level for a camera test/marketing stuff is kind of rough.

    But yeah as I said in another thread, the camera is pretty good for what it is... has some of the color palettes and rendering reminiscent of Ryan Gosling's Drive (shot on Alexa) although not as sharp of course.
