Shocked

Is the first time I try seriously to correct footage from the NANO.
I had to stop my color grading to write here that I'm completely astonished with the masks in the Secondary Rooms.
After few years suffering 420, this is a different planet.
Viva mi NANO.

Rafael, I've tried color correcting 4:2:0 footage and honestly, in my opinion if you're doing anything more than a few small tweaks, the footage just falls apart if you push it too much. Nothing like having deep data packed in there to push around.

This is hard to quantify with raw numbers when talking about codecs, speeds and bitrates*so I think that most people shooting on crappy codecs will miss this if they're not shown first hand.

I don't think the difference is due to 4:2:2 over 4:2:0, I believe it is simply that with the higher bit rates there is so much less mosquito noise and other artifacts. Whatever it is however the difference is striking. At 100 Mb/s or above you really can, as you have found grade the material so much harder.

Hi Alister,
Sure, I forgot to say the most obvious: The extra data rate.
Now if I find something wrong in my pictures I know that is because limitations of the camera, or the cameraman.
Now I can not blame the EX-1 codex:-)
