This is the second lens test reel, you can see #A2 also on from my video page. I am testing various lenses for use in film-making projects using the Super8 format Digital Cinema Camera called the KineRAW-S8p (tm). This camera records fully uncompressed at various Ultra-HD resolutions, this video was shot at 2592x1104x12bit@24.000fps 103MB/s to high speed SSD in the camera. The camera can dump the SSD to a notebook HDD in the camera so my setup was 60GB SSD and 500GB HDD for these lens tests. The camera can take C mount, CS mount, and D mount (regular 8mm) lenses. The image area varies with the resolution mode, some modes are about Super8 size so C mount lenses made for Super8 cameras may be used. the frames were processed in a free program called DANCINEC.EXE (tm) that is on my web site for download and "beta-testing". The workflow was DNG to TIF, the TIF were edited in my 'freeish' DI/NLE/CC/MIX software DANCAD87.EXE (tm) and output as BMP frame set letterboxed 1920x1080, that was converted into a MPEG4v2 6000kbps AVI in VirtualDub (tm) and uploaded here. There is no sound on this reel, although the camera can record sync sound 48000 s/s stereo, and has an autoslate beep and SMPTE TIME CODE for sync with an external sound recorder or SMPTE slate etc. The camera used is a pre-production prototype that I am testing for use with my free de-Bayer software, and for use in my own filmmaking projects. The production cameras may be somewhat different from this test camera and I may be able to improve the results that my de-Bayer program produces as I am still experimenting with various filter adjustments and code developments. this was processed mostly with v0.04 to v0.06 while they were being worked on. If you have any thoughts or questions about the de-Bayer you can email me through the address at my program's web site. You can google KineRAW (tm) to read more about the camera development, I am not involved in sales of the cameras, just trying to work with them to support their and other companies DNG recording Digital Cinema Cameras. You can google DANCAD3D to find my web site. If you see a white spot on the end title that seems to be a compression artifact. I will probably have some uncompressed frames from this video to email back if you are interested in seeing how the images would look on a 35mm film transfer or to be used as a source for Blu-ray or DCP for projection in a digital movie theater. The Camera shots 100% uncompressed, so there are can be some losses or banding and noise differences in the compressed version you are viewing here.
