    from Filippo Chiesa Added 6,842 139 81

    Last week I was in Amsterdam at IBC. I was lucky enough to test a sample of the new Gemini 4:4:4 recorder with my Sony PMW-F3 + S-Log. It was the first official test, so I felt very honoured to have this great opportunity. I shot this video in a very nice village near Amsterdam on Sep. 10th from 7am to 10am. The Gemini software was not the definitive one but it worked great. It's solid like a tank, the images are terrific and the Arri RAW option is on the way. Welcome to this new game changer! Recorder: Convergent Design Gemini Lenses: Nikon Noct 58mm 1:1.2 Nikon 14-24mm 1:2.8 Camera: Sony PMW-F3 + S-Log Camera support: O'Connor Editing: Premiere Pro CS 5.5 + Matrox MXO2 Grading: MBL + Colorista II A very special thanks to: Mike Schell and Dan Keaton from Convergent Design Sony Europe Michael Zeisse from O'Connor Please download the compression version to see the video in a better quality. ENJOY AND THANKS FOR WATCHING!

    • Red Epic Vs Sony PMW-F3 Vs Canon C300


      from Filippo Chiesa Added 19K 125 76

      The goal of this test is to compare the latitude of these three cameras: Red Epic, Sony PMW-F3 and Canon C300. Red Epic recorded RAW on-board in Red Log 4K HD. Sony PMW-F3 recorded in S-Log both in DPX on Gemini 4:4:4 10 bit and on-board. Canon C300 recorded in Canon-Log both in DPX on Gemini 4:2:2 8 bit and on-board. There are four tests: 1) Diffused light, from +3 stops to -5 stops. 2) Varying exposure in relation to indoor, outdoor and medium light. 3) Diffused light at 0 + spot light from 0 to +3 1/2 stops. 4) Sensors' quality test with charts. Filmed and edited at Bluzz Media Studio (www.bluzzmedia.com) Red Epic: Matteo Passigato (www.filmproduction.it) Canon C300: Adcom (www.adcom.it) (Now there's a new firmware update for the Epic for a better latitude. Please check here: https://vimeo.com/39102891). You can download the Pro Res HQ video here: http://www.adcom.it/Testcomparativo/ The file is huge, about 22 GB, so it's divided in 31 parts. Enjoy!

      • Sony NEX-FS700 + My-Log + Convergent Design Gemini (test)


        from Filippo Chiesa Added 5,900 96 56

        I filmed this short test with my FS700 and my Gemini 4:4:4 (50p Full HD recording http://www.xdcam-user.com/2012/06/uncompressed-slow-mo/) in a rainy morning. My-Log is not a real log, it emulates it to get the best dynamic range from the camera. There's no color grading in the first part of the video and you can see a little bit of noise expecially in the super slow motion images, but as you can see in the second part, you can easily remove it. Convergent Design guys are working hard, attempting to get the necessary information from Sony to support the 12 bit RAW from the FS700. Great news! Recorder: Convergent Design Gemini Lenses: Nikon 80-200 mm 1:2.8 (new) Nikon 14-24mm 1:2.8 Camera: Sony NEX-FS700 Camera support: O'Connor Editing: Premiere Pro CS 6 + Matrox MXO2 Grading: MBL + Colorista II BLACK LEVEL: +15 GAMMA: CINE4 BLACK GAMMA RANGE: Middle or HIGH BLACK GAMMA LEVEL: -+6 or +7 KNEE POINT: 105% KNEE SLOPE: -1 COLOR MODE TYPE: CINEMA COLOR MODE LEVEL: +8 COLOR LEVEL: -7 COLOR PHASE: 0 COLOR DEPTH: (+1, -1, 0, -1, +2, 0) DETAIL: -5 ENJOY AND THANKS FOR WATCHING!

              • What Ever Happened to Hip Hop


                from Sonali Aggarwal Added 25.9K 142 12

                It began with the beat of the drum. With the beat, came a voice for those without one. From this voice, came a movement. Overcoming the odds, the originators of hip hop took their music from block parties of New York City streets to world wide radio waves. During the early years, the music and message reached new heights by exploring humanity, politics, and street life, while keeping it real and having fun. But what ever happened to hip hop? Currently the most pervasive music worldwide, its roots have been forgotten, its message perverted. With hip hop in the spotlight, it's time to put it back on track. This documentary presents views from hip hop founders, contributors, and artists in an attempt to return its audience to the four principles: Peace, Love, Unity, and Having Fun
