    Artistically in terms of shots, very well done. DTLA night shot looks excellent.

    The BTS talking about skin tones looking great? Where everything is odd colored / blue? It's almost like they are joking, gas-lighting us, The Emperor's New Clothes, haha. For a camera sales demo we need to see realistic, ACCURATE COLOR, especially for skin tones! That's the hardest thing colorists have to deal with. Give us accurate color first, then we can twist the dials to make things artistic. It's super clear why ARRI dominates the pro cinema level camera market.

    Everyone talks about story, "How to shoot videos that don't suck", "Save the cat" all say the same thing: if we don't tell a good story, even for something like a wedding video, the video will suck and no one will want to watch it. Great ads tell a good story in as little as 15s!

    ARRI LF demo footage. No story, but tons of close ups and skin tones in a wide variety of lighting conditions:

    The 2nd video isn't hard to produce- how about something similar Canon?
    Sure the Alexa LF is at least 3x more expensive as a product but there's no reason a billion dollar company like Canon can't produce better demos.

    Canon should hire Wes Anderson to create a short with the C700 FF: bright / wild color, close up skin tones, and story! (probably with a few chuckles). Here's a short (7:45) I recently discovered that Wes did for Prada (shot on film?). Certainly Canon could afford to produce something similar (perhaps shorter) that would get people's attention using content as a promotional tool!

    Note the obvious color temp change at 4:58! (Wonder if that's a nod to Ferrari?)

    Overall nice but contrasty reminds of 5D video. Also not sure bike chase is right subject. All the rolling shutter in background.

    Yep the rolling shutter is annoying at that price point
