Latitude and Noise

Nick Paton ACS posted an interesting video on Vimeo. Alexa vs 7D graded to nominal from over and under exposed takes. It shows the real differences in image quality and flexibility. This is purely latitude and noise in post.

Cinedeck Extreme

Here’s a quick run down of the Cinedeck Extreme. A very versatile piece of recording gear. VA have some, but I haven’t had the chance to try one yet.

Sony F3

I had a chance to play with a Sony PMW-F3 prototype last night. It’s a very neat little package. The sensor is uses a standard Bayer pattern, not the new Q67, and is impressively clean and noise free. With a 50mm Super Speed at T1.3, and set to 18db gain, the images amazingly noise free and bright, and at 0db it pretty much matched my eye in quite a dark room with one key light.

This unit is on my gear list for next year.
