  1. Hello, I have exactly the same problem! I am currently shooting a Documentary in the south of France! And I am glad for the 14 stops range of the FS7. However I have color noise in the Black. My setups are 4K XAVC-I, 2000 ISO, 1/64 ND, S-Log3 ciné/Gamut3. I am not using an external recorder. I put my zebra at 60% of the S-log which will become 90% after gradings. Yesterday I did a black balance before shooting but it seems the noise stayed. A lot of that noise goes away when it is grade of course but some stay and it is quite annoying and disappointing to say the least.
  2. Hello Guys, I am gonna start shooting a documentary next week and our main camera will be the PXW-FS7. I already check many topics, tests and other reviews. I first decided to shoot in 1920 X 1080 in S-LOG 3 / Gamut 3. Two reasons to that, first one being mobility and also wish to keep an good latitude for the grading at the director looking to a specific style. Here an example of the kind of footage we looking to end up with For some of the interview we will have a second camera which will be a Sony A7S. The Director already order a Shogun to go with it. As the A7S is c
  3. Hello Miguel, Love the work you have done on that film. Love the difference between a blue face and a wormer background. The Only thing I would have to say is (the same as Tyler) maybe the light is a bit hard (just with the white hair) But beside that nothing to say. Yes and Honestly don't loose time and energy to grading something for Vimeo everything will disappear in the compression. A film I've done (as a DP) look nothing between the Vimeo Version and the "proper version". ;( But Keep it up look really cool! Cheers
  4. Yes I understand that! And I understand your point! But: - They are genius - They started in a really different Times. - They had really amazing ideas - You can't do a generality after two guys and ESPECIALLY this two. - For a Simple FACT there are not REPRESENTATIVE of the most of us! - Spielberg came back to finish his degree even if didn't need it anymore I see you point but you seem have trouble to see mine, maybe if you took a step back and look at my question differently, you will see I'm not saying you are wrong just I'm asking opinions about these articles
  5. Hello, As a "Young" French Cinematographer who just leave France for a possibly better future here in London! I would like to stand on one point you mention! You mention France and the law called (L'Exception Culturelle) Who allow French film to stand up in front of the Gigantic American Industry. The thing is even it's allowing film to be shot and French production to survive on the other side of the mirror it means. - Only a few people will work and probably always the same! Or there Friends No-place for newbies. - People will have two or three Jobs on a set or over the a

  8. Hello, I see your point Richard! But I'm just gone quote Martin Scorsese's Wikipedia page! "Scorsese enrolled in NYU’s University College of Arts and Science, (now known as the College of Arts and Science), where he earned a B.A. in English in 1964. He went on to earn his M.F.A. from NYU’++s School of the Arts (now known as the Tisch School of the Arts) in 1966, a year after the school was founded." Or Georges Lucas "Lucas then transferred to the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts. USC was one of the earliest universities to have a school devoted to motion p
  9. Hello! Thanks Mark for pointed out I didn't say film school! An If I may quote Wikipedia: "After moving to California, he applied to attend the film school at University of Southern California School of Theater, Film and Television two separate times, but was unsuccessful. He subsequently became a student at California State University, Long Beach." "Cameron enrolled at Fullerton College, a two-year community college, in 1973 to study physics. He switched to English, then dropped out before the start of the fall 1974 semester." But I was wondering if this kinda of raking

  11. Hello, I found these two articles about the Top Ten Schools in UK & US. I'm mostly agreed but I wonder what this type of ranking can worth? I mean is this accurate? I know finding an University can be confusing.I know I'm confused myself right now looking for mine. But I wonder.... So In you opinion What are the best school and do you think, this kind of ranking is trustable? Here the links http://talesfromtheargo.com/uk-film-schools/ http://talesfromtheargo.com/top-us-film-schools/ Cheers Guys PS : I read a lot of Bad reviews on MET Film School but apparentl

  14. Hello guys, Not to many reply to my previous post. But I keep doing some research. Thanks to this forum I found a lot of relevant information lately. So there is some part of my career plan! please fell free to comment, adjust, reject, advise . :) So first the more I think about it the more it seems than taking a Big MA degree in such a big university such as NTFS, AFI, NYU, UCLA seems a good idea, not only because it will give me connexion but it will give me also a lot of important knowledge and it seems like an really good opportunity. Plus I love learning things so Seems lik
