Does this send film to Oblivion?

Published in Technology & Computing

You may think we're hammering it a bit with the Sony F65, what with our piece on Belle, and with our forthcoming article on what differentiates the F65 from the F55, but let's be clear about this: we are actually at the point where you can make better films with video than you ever could with celluloid - and that's worth a significant amount of coverage

Claudio Miranda on Oblivion and the Sony F65

There's no doubt that Sony's pretty pleased about the results of their F65's role in Oblivion. And well they might be: the internet is bursting with plaudits for the look and style of the film

Why is there such a huge difference in the price of some cameras, which might both be supposedly "Cinema Quality"?

Unlike the vast majority of  independent films, we decided to film “La Vie Nous Appartient” with a high-end camera - in this case, the Sony F65. This might have seemed a somewhat daunting task, considering our more than low budget, and our choice to film all by hand in a rocky terrain. But it was important to us to give our sensitive story the quality it deserved

This is the first of two articles featuring the Sony F65 - currently widely considered to be the best cinematography camera in the world, and the only one to output a true 4K from its 8K sensor. In this RedShark exclusive, Andy Stout talks to DoP Ben Smithard about his approach to shooting period drama Belle with this 4K camera

That's a big claim to make, but it's true. This development means that TVs will be able to show videos that handle light in the same way as real-life. In our view, it's much more important than merely having more pixels, and the good news is that it's compatible with some existing cameras!

 Cheaper, cinematic cameras come with a cost - they tend to have Rolling Shutters, which means that rapid movement can be skewed. In the next few months, you'll be able to buy cameras with Global Shutters at all price points. This can't come soon enough, according to Phil Rhodes
