Was this a symbolic comment or just co-incidence?

Not at all! But I can see where you are coming from. If anyone could have interpreted it that way it should have been me given my thoughts...but no, it's more about the passage of time...through the years etc! worried me there though. I hope other people don't see it like that!

The protestant family has more problems with dynamic range, I could definetly notice more lost details in white, less dynamic range, less color, etc.
Great stories. Thanks again.
Could you post one image of Ex1 with letus in full res?
Thanks Oleg. It's actually more to do with grading. Both have very different grades.

I have attached a still from the Letus/ Ex1 combo that is ungraded. I am editing it tomorrow.

Thanks again for prompt response,
So the difference just in grading, do you mean you consider 350 and Ex1 comparable in all kinds of lighting situations?

The EX1 is much more sensitive than the F350. The F350 is of course a better camera, but the EX1 is an impressive little beast. I am very happy with the results from it. More so that any other "small" camera I have used. It is the only camera of that type that I would consider using as an A camera when I could easily use the F350 instead.

Great! Look forward to see some more footage, possibly you could post few seconds in 2K?
regards, Oleg.

PS. Oleg, I meant no offence - I'm a technology-obsessed quirk myself:)

I meant 1080 by 1920 of EX1 footage, possibly wide shot with detail, street, field, etc.

I have posted stills on this thread.

I understand why but it's east to become obsessed with numbers and forget about why we use the cameras in the first place but don't forget numbers and stats aren't what it's all about!!

Ariel,
I don't at all follow your rez tests.
The sample charts were shot at an angle.
Also, they were not set up correctly to the correct marks; therefore,
the tests do not mean anything. In fact the HV20 was shot a lot wider FOV.
????????????????

Sorry, then I'm not sure why you posted it.
Take a look at the large rez charts.. LOL... They're shot on an angle all at
different field of views.
Very strange.

*ahem*

sorry to knit-pick, but. . .

2k != 1920x1080
2k = 2048x1080

What I am really curious about is the EX1s 24p. What is the pulldown? Are we talking something akin to what Adam Wilt refers to as "24p Standard" (a la Panasonic DVX200 24p) or "24p Advanced" (a la DVX2000 24pA)?

If I'm going to be going out to film and want the easiest path in conforming to true 24fps, is this camera a contender (excellent image quality aside)?

Knit-picking is never a good idea on this site.

The difference between 1080p and 2K is so minimal that they may as well be synonymous terms, and sometimes for all practical purposes they are, as far as we're concerned here. Hope this helps,
