This is a real movie made by real motion pro team.
I will go to see it.
The 5D2 allowed them freedom and going deeper into the action, as you pointed,
maybe even sacrificing some units in some takes, but this isn't the wanabee dslr crowd production.
There is serious production and highly skilled cine pros operators in all the chain.
It might have cost less with this particular set but in such a contex it would have looked good
filmed with a I.phone.
This is in fact a proper cine production with all the ingredients involved except the cameras.
The interest and good news is that it shows how far we could go with those Dslrs. In fact, really far.
The bad news, is that for most of us, such an output-result is out of range.
As you point the grading is superb, probably done by a very experienced colorist(s), the cameramen are pros, the steady
are the good ones manouvered by the good ones, there is lighter lightning but proper DP, generators, gaffers, camera assistants, MUAS and stylists and story-boarders and cranes, an army of editors and FX artists etc etc...
and there is a story.
And this, as you pointed, is only considered as middle budget prod.
They would have use the GH2 or the Nex 7, the same. The camera plays a little part in the equation in fact when in such context. It's all the chain that is bloody demanding in motion,
both in terms of mediums and knowledge-skills.
Yes I beleive that those camera will lighten a lot the circus, yes I beleive that they will allow less people on set, that they have no rival
when it comes to go into the action, that they are so cheap that you could film with 10 cameras the same take with no fear to break one etc...
but I mostly beleive that all this is a real professional team craft that is not forgiving (and the PP monster...).
If, as you pointed in another thread, these guys are starting to do ads campaigns because of the global situation, I think it will be really chalenging for us to compeat.
The only good point for us coming from still is that we generally are more versatiles and quicker to "see" and set with less people and mediums.
What catches my attention is that I have a strange feeling that you aren't convinced convinced by the Scarlet. To my surprise to be honest.
I would have thought that the form factor and design would have been ideal, and reading in between lines something is not pleasing you
completly with this camera (a part for the menu-buttons)
