my faith in RED has been restored... I cannot wait until these cameras start coming out!!! granted that even if you buy the lowest costing Scarlet Brain, your setup will still probably end up costing over $7,000 after everything you need for it. This has me excited for next fall
I think the only way to go is get a scarlet S35 that way you can use Nikon or Canon lenses and are not conformed to only there lenses. But the price is 4x of the 2/3 and the 2/3 can shoot 120FPS so. most likely go with that one. I guess i better start eatting ramen.
Picture quality really isn't everything. 35mm looks pretty damn good on the big screen and the little screen. 85% of hollywood type movies are still shot on film, and they probably will be for the next 15-20 years
You are a film lover though. I feel like that the 28k will produce amazing motion and color with a breathtaking image. And at 25fps it will be close to film action also. I can see the 28k being updated and modified and eventually taking over film for new producers and directors. I'm guessing the old/current guys will never stop using film.
DOS Media's "Overlooked" www.dosmedia.net
I wasn't referring to a "film look," I meant just good motion, color, and gain in general.
The reason I like film so much isn't because of the grain or color (although they are a big factor). I like film so much because the motion looks so similar to the way I see motion through my eyes. I've never seen HVX footage that looked "real"...everything looks too in focus. I'm probably going to get hate for this, but I didn't like the RED shots of Sammy in the TGR film for just that reason - the motion looked funky and unnatural.
If any company can make a digital HD camera that can perfectly emulate motion the way it is seen through my eyes, they will have my support. Until then, I'm sticking to my DVX's 30p mode with a 1/120 shutter.
