Hello, I'm looking to buy a cinema camera in this range of price and the 2 options I have come to are between the new red vraptor, and a old used red dragon 8k vv, which would be the better bet? could I get decent money renting the dragon vv? I'm in the DMV area of the US btw. Now why these cameras? Well it's because I actually like the look of red cameras (it just appeals to me more) and for my workflow I like having the 8k (personally speaking, I know I will get some up my ass for this tho), and I can use Leica m mount lenses so that kinda alot of other options are out of the running. I know the vraptor absolutely has a technical advantage over the dragon in every way and it has great image quality, but I like the gritty look and aesthetic of the dragon sensor with the legacy color science, to me it exemplifies what I associate with the look of red cameras the most and I'd have to do some work in post to get that out of the vraptor since you can't choose legacy color when shooting but can only work on that through selecting legacy color in redcine-x (not the end of the world I realize, but prefer to go with something I know will give me the aesthetic I want as I haven't seen any footage matching the dragon from the vraptor), and I also have no option for hdrx or any resolution options besides whole numbers on the vraptor. Basically I'm dealing with the age old conundrum of practicality vs aesthetics and I don't know where to go. If anyone has some advice, please give it to me, also if you have also pondered how to make the vraptor look like the older red cameras and succeeded in matching them based on the dragon, please tell me your ipp2 settings.
G'day everyone, So, I compared some stuff and wrote a thing: http://dreamsmiths.com.au/blog/why-bigger-is-better-but-not-much-else If you're interested in the objective differences of large format cinematography to regular S35mm images, you might find it worthwhile. It's a quick test comparing regular S35mm Alexa, matched for both field of view and depth of field against the shiny new Vistavision-sized sensor of the Alexa LF, using spherical lenses. If you click through to the vimeo link, you can download the full 4.4k ProResHQ file in all its glory, which I'd highly recommend pulling into a piece of grading software to look at up close. The test certainly helped clarify a few things for me. Cheers, Mark
Dear DPs, If you see this young generation of filmmakers (Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, J.J Abrams), they keep shooting their movies in film like Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, … Does it mean that today, we can't get the feeling, the grain, and the warmth of film in digital ? The response is maybe in the question, right ? But I would like to know if there is a DP who tried to get this feeling of film (35mm (ex: Eastman 100T 5247),70mm (ex: 65 mm Eastman 50T 5250) in digital, especially with the Red Weapon 8K S35 ? And of course with the appropriate lens. Thanks Jean-Marc
Hey guys. Brand new to the forum and i joined specifically because i'm trying to find an answer to this question. Film usually runs vertically threw a camera but a few formats have it run horizontally to achieve a much larger negative. IMAX does this with 65mm and VistaVision does it with 35mm. Is there a 16mm equivalent?
