Sony F3 + S-Log + Gemini 4:4:4 Footage by Filippo Chiesa

Dear Friends,

While at IBC, we had an opportunity to allow one of our Gemini 4:4:4's to be used by a noted filmmaker.

Filippo Chiesa, an Italian Filmaker, had a Sony F3 with the S-Log Option. So we loaned a Gemini 4:4:4 to him for a day of shooting.

While we have been testing the Gemini 4:4:4 internally, this is the first official test "In the Wild".
We were not present during the shoot.

We are very happy to report that the Gemini 4:4:4 worked well for Filippo.

His footage is here:

The footage starts out in native S-Log, so it looks flat, as expected.

The second half is the same footage after grading.

We wish to thank Filippo for the outstanding job he did in testing our Gemini 4:4:4.

Beautiful. Very filmic. Tons of latitude. Blacks appear deep and rich (watched on a laptop and obviously not the right way to make judgements).

Would love to have watched on a proper monitor and Blu-Ray.
Wished the sun had come out to see even more of the chroma pop.

Dear John,

Thank you.

And of course, I need to thank Filippo.

The Video is embedded in my post, which is great.

Here is what Filippo posted as comments on the Vimeo site, video number 29021459:

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.
