Zacuto Shootout 2012
Part one is up! http://www.zacuto.com/shootout-reven...otout-part-one
I think this might surprise some folks. Lets just say if you're going in looking for a battle-to-the-death to declare the ultimate camera choices... you will come away disappointed. Personally, I think this "new" direction is fantastically on point. A truly wonderful insight into the art of cinematography, as well as a fantastic intro\tease for what is sure to be an excellent camera comparison.
Totally underwhelmed over here. Especially after the teaser by Steve and Jens I hoped to finally get a peak into the heads of some of those great DPs. Or at the very least give me good pointers. Not just name...read good books. Thank you very much for that one. Good movies, sure thing. Sure there were some good advices, as such. But unfortunately it's basically the same old (true) - but increasingly pushed out - story about creativity, effort, learning and leaving tools to what they are...tools. Sorry, but that's not cutting it for me anymore. I'm well aware.
The 'promise' would be how demonstrate how some of the DPs were truly able to max out their cameras. And in the case of the GH2 you've got more work to do, whereas other cameras are out of the box better. Sure, there is more to come and I'll most definitely will take a look at those to. But honestly, the real cliffhanger, the one which you're supposed to get with this 'new' shootout, it was not there. The only one was the shootout and that's "yesterday's" shootout.

So what was the result of the shootout? Was it about the design of a good camera, or that the camera you use doesn't really matter? Or was it really about the creative ability and talents of a good DP?

It would have been better served to determine the equipment necessary, the manpower, and time to completion, since that really what most movie budgets are based on

I like how the video is in 720p. That's my favorite delivery format. What do you think Krane?

I think that you're more interested in lobbing insults than you are in having a mature and intelligent dialogue about film. I won't foster your impertinence. Good bye.
