Shooting on a Sony F35, with the Odyssey 7Q External Recorder. This was a location test, and camera test all rolled into one. We wanted to push the highlights and the shadows of the images, to create maximum stress on the cameras dynamic range.
The focus was not perfect as no follow focus was used, shooting wide open almost at T1.4. There are also one or two abrupt cuts - music was added just to make it nicer to watch :)
Shooting at 10Bit 4:4:4 via dual input into the 7Q. The F35 has a 5K sensor, and outputs a clean and uncompressed 1920x1080p signal. We were using a set of Zeiss 'B-Speed' cine lenses, 35mm and 85mm.
We were able to use a very unlikely workflow:
- All footage was shot in the space of 25mins
- The footage was ingested into Premiere Pro CC as .DPX image sequences
- Footage was edited on a flight from Salt Lake City to LA, on the bumpiest flight ever....
- From there the footage was taken into Resolve Lite 10 and graded with built in tools and LUT's
- All of the above workflow was done on a mid-2012 macbook air with 4GB RAM.... that was the unlikely part of the story!
It is also very important to mention that i exported this video using the built in Vimeo 1080p export settings in Premiere. This compressed the video to 78MB in size. What you are seeing is a heavily compressed version of this video.
As a Red owner and also the owner of DSLR cameras etc - this is the closest digital image to film in my opinion, just like the ARRI Alexa.
