  • Spotlight on the RED EPIC-W

  • I spoke about this a few years back, but the real advantage to 8k is that line skipping no longer negates 4:4:4 color... When downsampling to 4k from 8k you get the full spectrum of film color and luminance - one line for green - one line for red and blue (Green is of course, as always, tied to luminance.)

  • The Helium sensor seems to have a nice color science! great work, red!

  • @AlbertZ

    Helium sensor does not have any "color science". Whole term is marketing bullshit spread among gear sites and proponents. All that it does is convert photons hitting specific areas into electrons as every other sensor and, as every other sensor, it has usual color filters above this regions.

    If they stop all this marketing bullshit and just show all the normal, usual math involved in producing Prores files you will be not impressed. And start asking not so kind questions.
