    The first page of that thread.. the chap in the car has the dreaded lack of saturation and thinness to the file that made the F3 to me unusable for anything but 'faux log art'.. Grugs images have depth and saturation.. Numbers wise it would make complete sense that 444 recording 4096 tones could be the reason for this (beyond good cinematography, art direction etc.)

    Yes probably because it was slog shot in 8-bit 420, not to mention I may have had matrix turned on as I did not really learn about turning it off until long afterwards.

    Point of the link really was to the LUTs and relevant information as someone had asked about LUTs, etc. My image definitely is crap compared to Grugs.

    Grug, what lead to your decision to use the F3 for this short film vs other cameras you might have had at your disposal?

    Why'd I shoot on my crappy little F3 instead of on the amazing Alexa Studio that sits on the shelf next to it?

    One simple reason really... no one was paying for the Alexa.

    It's one of the real benefits of owning two cameras (one cheapy and one that's expensive as hell) instead of owning one mid-range camera (like the F5 I had before). You're never forced to put the expensive camera out on shoots that won't actually pay a fair rate for it.

    And the great thing about having the F3, is that even if I don't get to use the Alexa (which is always a little sad), I can still get great images anyway.

    The F3 lets me come out with some lights and grip gear for a very reasonable fee and get good results. Then when productions have the money for the nice toys, the Alexa comes out with all the lights and we can get great results. I find I suffer much less angst by having the two options available.

    Great job Grug. Will we see a run on used F3's like we did on F35's? They're cheap as hell.

    Great work as always!

    Hey, just wanted to get a sense of how you treated those day exteriors. Were you mostly shooting on cloudy days? Were you modifying? Not sure if you're open to sharing but always curious to hear from folks more experienced than myself.

    In any case, thanks for sharing!
