What we need more than anything, other than a simplified colour suite, is the ability to make the image on the lcd match the image in a computer.
It just fractures me to see a beautiful lcd image, put it into a calibrated, or non calibrated monitor and see it 2/3s of a stop under.
P.S. by simplified, I don't mean less options, just a more intuitive system.
And equipment that are not obsolete the day we buy them... ]
In fact, the wish and need list that aren't fullfilled
Is like dark energy: it bloody grows with time,
And the cameras and post tools we would all like
To see is like dark mater: invisible.
Look at those nodes in Resolve. Not only they look
As nice as a Birkinstock pair of shoes on a Botero
Statue, but if I understand the
Why in Nuke, I don't get the point in an app like Resolve.
Take the GH line. They will improve AF accuracy for sure
Year after year. That's the good news. But then, how will
They build the system will define if one's lenses invertion
Will have to end on the studio's garbage or not.
So not only the cameras are obsolete but the lenses too.
They are not even able to make a standart battery within
The same line...each new version comes with it's brand
New battery model. Look at what happened to the
Excellent Olympus pro lenses of the recent past. Nobody
Wants those any more and they are really top. But they
Don't AF well.
It sort of break my heart to put 3000 on the table knowing
That it's already for the garbage in a few months.
Red and Arri are more rock solid invertions and made
To last more than a year or 2. But where the really
Inovations take place are in the hand of the big companies
And unlike Red or Arri, they produce massively and
Have other goal in mind than a stable equipment
For the pro but consummer products that eventually
Will be used in professional productions but obsolete
The day they are available in the market.
7It's funny to see how Pana implemented the codec in the
GH3, just as good to tempt the hackers crowd, but just
As bad to not tempt the P users...
I bet anything to anybody that Cinema DNG will not
Become a standart in practise when Raw video will be
The norm but each brand will provide it's own system
That of course no NLE will be able to read and we will
End with a myriad of RCX kind of softwares just to
Bloody handle the footage. It's gona be really fun,
And of course...faster than ever.
Have you seen the prices of broadcast monitors?
You won't tell me that inside the box there is such
A cutting edge tech that can justify it but only because
Broadcast have unlimited budgets. For the independant
And tiny houses it's all DIY.
