  1. This is where a test really helps out a lot. Also, talk to the lab before hand to get their input on the matter. However, I have to agree with what has already been said. I would shoot it neutral with a 85 in place and then warm it up in post. Are you shooting exclusively outdoors? Why not try the 250D with a warming filter? Over exposing 500T is good idea. I have shot lots outdoors with 500t, the St. Patty's day parade in Southie, the lab, Cinelab was able to bring all the colors back to a "norm" There was plenty of grain still, but it was old stock and did have great retro look
  2. Well said Greg! He is a total and utter scum bag! His public image is more important to him than the facts. If he didn't pull the trigger, who did? Can a gun just go off like that? I have not watched the recent interview, but I hope it serves to convict him. May he rot in prison or at least be black balled.
  3. Is this the same footage that is in the new Get Back documentary?? I ask because onNPR this morning, they did a piece about it, stating that roof top set was just after what is in Get Back. The trailer looks great! Can't wait to see it.
  4. I was willing to cut Baldwin some slack, but forget it now. He was probably told to go hide in the Green Mountains and keep his mouth shut, but couldn't even do that. In the video he came across as quite disingenuous and has chosen to stand with production. Well oiled my ass!
  5. If you are moving the camera during the shot, you may get some rolling shutter effect. This might occur if you are shooting out the side widows while driving and moving the camera around. But film cameras have a fast rolling shutter and I as an Aaton owner have rarely seen it.
  6. Aaton XTR Prods have legendary great registration. Driving in a moving car without any stabilization (steady Cam) won't or shouldn't cause the film to "jump" in the gate. Highly unlikely, even less so if the camera is recently serviced. However, the image may still not be steady, but it isn't he cameras fault, it is the movement of the support under it. In your case, it seems like it might me very little. If you cannot use a steady cam, use a car with a very soft ride. For example a big Cadillac and not a Corvette. Try padding under the Hi-hat to help absorb vibration.
  7. How many of the people who really made all the decisions that lead to this will be prosecuted? The AD and armorer and maybe the line producer, for sure, but they are lower hanging fruit. I really don't think Alec Baldwin will fight any decision made by the law as to punishment. He will take his. He will be living with immense remorse and guilt from now on...........Beyond that, the scum that kept cracking the whip, cutting every corner they could, are all now scrambling to protect themselves. The AD and armorer have been put up as the fall guy/girl. which is obvious and just. The line producer was probably only working with 1 to 2 million when you factor in Baldwin's salary, so the corners they were tasked to "cut" were quite tight as it was, but still.....guilty! How did they get bonded knowing that live rounds were on set??? Answer, the insurer/bondsman didn't know about them. Time will tell us what is to come, but it has been my experience in life that wealthy and powerful people are not held to the same rules as everyone else. Given that and how small this budget seems to be, perhaps more heads will roll, like the director. . Lots of horrible shit is yet to be revealed, but who is really going to pay? That is my question.
  8. Great point and well said Frank. I completely agree. A compramise may be the Tangent Ripple. I have never used one, but the cost and size may be a perfect fit for a advanced home user.
  9. Was the lens re-centered? I ask because I used to own a S16 K3 that was re-centered and at 17mm, no vignetting. That zoom lens isn't so bad.
  10. what resolution did you scan at? I watched it on my 43 inch TCK UHD panel and it looks great. Definitely grainy and it was a 1080 video being scaled, but looked good. Is there a 4k version out there? I would be curious to see a 4k Youtube or Vimeo version of s16 from the same scanner.
  11. Samsara is considered the sequel to Baraka. Both are great. I have seen them both in 70mm and digital many times. Two of my all time favorites!
  12. I did watch it in two sessions only because I was interrupted. I easily could have finished in one go.
