Hey all - was looking to get some insight as to what other DPs like to test for when given the opportunity to test cameras and lenses for picture. Even as far as to what tools you might recommend using to help the testing process like a light meter, etc. For this purpose let's assume the test is for digital camera bodies. I'll soon have access to a RED V-Raptor 8K for testing and my personal Fuji X-T4. Two completely different camera bodies but for myself I really want to compare the dynamic range and how far I can push them in the post-room when comparing the two. I'd like to place them in high contrast lighting situations - anyone have any insight here as to what they like to do/use? Is there anything else you would test for? I'll also have access to a set of IronGlass lenses - rehoused vintage soviet lenses. Anything in particular you test for or even a high-level/general idea of your mindset going into a lens test? Testing for how images look like wide open versus closed down, flaring, etc. Any insight here would also be greatly appreciated. Links to other videos or tests would be welcomed too. Thank you all.
Hello everyone, My friend Fred and I wanted to go out and do a camera test on my ARRICAM. My other friend and her dog were in town visiting at the time, and we thought they had a cool story to tell. One thing led to another, we ended up making this tiny little documentary call Zema. Check it out if you are interested: Shot in one day with only available light. Tested 6fps, 24fps and 48fps on Kodak 5207 and 5219 stock with Zeiss Superspeeds MKIII. Film processed at the Kodak lab Pinewood Studios. Would love to hear your thoughts. Share it if you like it! Cheers, and have a nice day! Tsering
Hi, I'm currently in pre-production on a "kitchen-sink" social realism drama and I'm looking at films like 'Fish Tank' and 'This is England' as visual references for the look of this film. I want to use the flat and dry colour palettes used in these films to create a similar mood and atmosphere for my film. Eventhough my influences are from an 80's style, this is a creative choice for a film with a contemporary story. I will be testing the Sony F55 and the Blackmagic distagon lenses next week to see if this would be a possible substitute for shooting 16mm film as this would be too expensive. I've been told that this would change my depth of field and that I'll be shooting with a 2x crop. The majority of this short film will be shot ecu - mids with occasional wides as it's quite a close and intimate story. I'm just wondering if anyone has any suggestions or advice in regards to my approach? Here are a few visual references.
