Just to be absolutely clear. This camera exists. It works. It works WELL!. And we're shooting a feature on it beginning 10 May. To see footage and follow the process we will post info and clips as often as our schedule allows. visit: http://indiefilmlive.blogspot.com

Thanks to silicon imaging and cineform for making it all possible.

Simon, I know this might be a bit too ask. But, could you post colour processed stills along side the raw straight stuff as the movie goes, and maybe the odd micro clip, so people can see the beauty of this system?


Thanks

Wayne.

BTW, Wayne, when you talk about "RAW straight stuff", please remember that the color matrix, white-balance, etc., is all metadata-so the data IS always "RAW straight stuff", even when it looks like it's going through color-processing. If you don't like what we do, just flip a switch off in Premiere Pro, and you're back into a completely non-color corrected space. But that doesn't make those types of images more "RAW" than the others . . . the RAW data is always there, and it always has to be color-corrected at some point, whether it's with the metadata in the file header, or with another color-correction tool.

Of course, I am talking about web jpegs of untouched frames off the camera etc, versus the sort of finale colored images that you get after conditioning to go to the theatre. Showing potential customers just what can be done with the images (probably also helps to explain to them that all cameras go through the same process aswell).


Thanks

Wayne.

Simon's blog covering their work with this camera on the feature "Spoon" deserved to be its own topic, so I've split it out of Jason's thread.
