The pandemic is ending any second now... edition
All video related questions and discussion is intended for this thread. Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.
Posting short films/scripts or other work you've done is encouraged.
We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses.
In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

It's the most fun phone camera if you care about that. It takes a second or two to process images since Nokia at the time decided to reuse a mid range CPU for this flagship for some reason but I still cherish what you can do with this. No stupid AI background bluring, no fake HDR, just a very capable phone camera.
>>
Yes, It's a good camera, but since the phone is so old, you can expect the battery to die in 5 - 10 hours. So make sure that there's a way to grab an extra battery.

ITT, you post pictures taken with shitty digicams.

Everything still matters like composition and lighting, but you have to use the shittiest digital compact you have, bonus points if you don't have to resize to get under 1000px longest side. Digital artifacts are not only welcomed, they are encouraged. OP picture has two dead pixels.

All gear discussion ITT should be about finding the shittiest gear and shooting with it.

Whats even the point of 12k? Is it just for making VFX easier? Its not like this has the advantage of a larger sensor

No, if you go by 3x3 you get giant sections missing a single red or blue sample.
Look again lmao.

From left to right in each 3x3...
2r2g4w1b, then 2r2g5w0b with no blue at all.
That pattern is very flawed.
>>
>>3861079

>>
>>3862840
No, it's a lot better. You get four colours on the sensor, while you can only get three on bayer pattern. Anyone experienced grading and working extensively with bayer patterns will fully know it's shortcomings and drawbacks. In fact, a lot of people move to xtrans, and ccd just for a change of pace, even though they're not at all superior, being different is enough. 12k is meme, but colours you can get from the capture are special, and then you can grade that capture to another level as well. This tech is a legit breakthrough. Not a major one, but in a stagnating industry, every step forward is noticeable nonetheless.
https://vimeo.com/452436279
>>
>>3863002
Ah you’re right I was checking the small pattern not the big one and missed it.

But I still believe the scaling will be roughly like that, I.e. distinctly better than a quarter res of bayer (I.e. a 6k bayer), due to more colour information when downsized like that (double each colour *plus* many white pixels for spatial resolution/DR/whatever).
But not as good as equivalent bayer sensor (12k).
So I’d guess somewhere equivalent to an 8K bayer, I.e. better in some aspects, worse in others.
It almost feels like an exact repeat of the Foveon vs bayer or SuperCCD vs bayer resolution situation.
>>
>>3863092
It definitely has its uses but when you really look at the pattern it's just an enlarged 2x2 bayer with whites mixed in.
Honestly if it were an x-trans with white mixed in it could actually be nice. A 3x3 section of that would yield a guaranteed 2r2g2b3w per 3x3, with some alternation in the color to fight a bit of moire.

>>3863031
>No, it's a lot better.
Not at capturing true color information it isn't. Light, yes, but that's beside the point. This is more like a hybrid greyscale sensor mixed in with bayer. A compromise in both worlds but master of none.

As a tool it's still gonna be decent though but to say it's better at the one thing it's objectively weak at by design is just silly.

4x4 from this sensor is obviously better than 2x2 of a regular bayer, in the end, the only flaw is they're advertising it and acting like it's superior when it's just more of the same with a different spin, and more of a hybrid approach sacrificing color sensing for better luma sensitivity.

That a great comparison. I guess if I went large format, i’d go the full 8x10.

>>3862376
Price aside, I don’t think the heat would be insurmountable- it’s already a huge item - packing in some serious cooling wouldn’t make it any more awkward - large format has already maxed out its awkward stats. The price WOULD be fucking insane though. That’s some NASA telescope money.

>>3862612
Wait what???? The mp count is bizzare....

Ok so they’re working on a mk2, and it’s 9x11, 26mp and the monochrome sensor will be US$85,000. Colour tba. So far out of our leagues its not even funny

>>3862777
What about testing before separating into smaller sensors- any that happen to be perfect can go to large format and the rest get partitioned into ff?

Pentax is nice, cosina make most of their glass, they also make voigtlander and some Zeiss lenses, they're pretty goated. Shame they bring out like one lens every 3 years.

Nikon has a good selection of specialist stuff, I have a couple of their tilt shift lenses and the quality is outrageously good. I think they've lost their way the last 10 years though.

This is bullshit cope. We look at 2 dimensional images, not lines. 50mp is roughly double 24mp. Whether or not OP needs 50mp or is just being a CONSOOOOOOMER is another question.

My goal is to export my RAWs easily with the following settings.
16-bit ProPhoto, relative rendering intent.
AMAZE demosaicing or 4:4:4 25% straight downsampled
WB from camera metadata or configurable per-session (choosing 5000K, 5700K, 6500K, etc).
Black point taken from metadata, white point set to max for max latitude
No lens corrections
No sharpening
No curves other than gamma for colorspace
