Varicam for feature?

Recommended Posts

I have recently measure HVX200 and it was a touch better than F900R! As far as latitude matters?

 

Hi Evangelos,

 

What Gamma curve were you using on the F900R? Curves 3 & 4 with hyper gamma are quite good. You can also import a custom curve such as that from Digital Praxis. I was testing a F900R V Eterna 500 & 5218 last weekend.

About Cinealta read the sixth post http://www.cinematography.com/forum2004/in...showtopic=22911

 

About Varicam Filmrec read that PDF http://www.motionfx.gr/files/HD%20Varicam%20Film%20Rec.pdf

 

Also check this tweaked DVX http://www.reel-stream.com/ check out the gallery, see the lighted room!!! Note that the Log mentioned everyware and they also using CineLike-D (If you have read the Varicam FilmRec PDF you will understand).

 

This is a simple DVX, imagine what a Varicam can do? if you read the Cinealta post you will (again) understand?

 

Finally read what an American cinematographer did in DC/Baltimore http://www.chrisnuzzaco.com/

Hi Evangelos,

 

Originally you said "Exactly David, plus the cinelike mode that has much more latitude than Digital beta and don?t mention the Firewire no generation loss of the DV editing process"

 

Now you are comparing with Realstream? Realstream does not record to DV, I am getting confused.

No am not referring to the tweaked DVX as the example that originally were discussing. What I quote to David was with a typical DVX not the andromeda one?

 

I thought that our discussion has concluded regarding DVX and 790, as of 970 I cant have an opinion.

 

Regarding to Cinealta and HVX you should read my post in the Cinealta sub forum?

 

Now for your general education about Cinegamma technique and general knowledge of what is happening around as you should read also the reelstreem tweak because this guys they don?t do anything else than bypassing recording mechanism and record directly RGB from CCD using the Panasonic Cine gamma technique in full.

 

What is odd, is that it appears that HVX (and probably other cameras) are downgrading heavily the image quality right after the DSP in a point that before recording to have an almost 75db of headroom for latitude and after recording to have no more than 58db. That?s very odd. And sad? I would say.

 

Regards,

 

PS. Please read carefully what I?m writing in full, not a part of it every time. We don?t have anything to fight for, we just exchanging knowledge. I wouldn?t want to start ignoring offensive posts, because I don?t want to believe that there are other reasons to make someone offensive. Cinematography.com is a public forum for exchanging ideas and knowledge it?s not a battlefield.
