Shot in Uncompressed 1080p on a Sony F35. Band Pro's technical consultant Randy Wedick took the Leica Summilux-C lenses out to San Francisco & Sonoma to test them out.
This piece shows a wide variety of lighting conditions, particularly very strong backlight and other scenes where you would expect and encounter flare. Many shots are made at T/1.4 or T/2 (with the help of Tiffen NDIR filters in strong daylight). Beautiful edge to edge sharpness and the hard to describe "Leica look" really come through.
Special thanks to Joel K & Vanessa for setting up the incredible Scribe Winery location.

Humans are part of the natural order. We're risen apes that acquired language and learned to use tools. Skyscrapers and spacecraft may seem unnatural, but they're just as much a part of the natural order as beaver dams and bird nests. Boring electrical lines hint at the energy solution of a mammalian species. Open your eyes to the world you've grown accustomed to, and rejoice in the fact that you participate in the human project. - @ReidGower - http://www.twitter.com/reidgower

The Zacuto Fee-N-G is an ENG style rig compatible with all DSLR cameras. It is a lightweight & compact, in-line kit ideal for run-and-gun & all types of handheld shooting. The single Zgrip attached to the front of the DSLR baseplate allows for precise camera control without the added weight of a dual handgrip system. With one hand on the grip & the other on the lens, the shooter is always prepared to make critical adjustments to focus & zoom. The included EVF Standard Mount will hold any Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). The Standard Mount also sports a built-in "kickstand" to keep the camera level whenever placed on the ground. A new shorter DSLR handle that sits at camera lens level is included giving the shooter exceptionally balanced control when shooting in low mode.

The Iron Psyche was shot on the Kinefinity Kineraw camera. This camera records 2k 12bit RAW files to either Cineform or Cinema DNG. kineraw.com/index.asp
The camera used was an engineering sample and not a production model.
It was edited in Adobe Premiere and the sound mix was done in pro tools.
It was very lightly graded, just the odd bit of contrast, saturation and black levels changed. We did this on purpose so people can see what the Kineraw image looks like. We did zero noise reduction or sharpening on any of the footage.
The camera itself does no in camera noise reduction. So what your seeing noise wise is exactly what's coming off the sensor.
This short was filmed over two days in Cronulla, Rockdale and Lewisham, all suburbs in Sydney, Australia.
Lenses used were the Zeiss ZF2's. 21mm f2.8, 35mm f1.4, 50mm f1.4 and 85mm f1.4. Additional lenses used were a PL modified 11-16mm f2.8 and a Samyang 24mm f1.4
A full review and article on the Kineraw is coming soon to dslrnewsshooter.com
