    I think they look fantastic. It's a great location, too, with lovely backgrounds and that big soft source--getting some shades of Barry Lyndon or Jane Eyre 2011, haha.

    I personally don't think you...

    I think, for one, it's nice to have as a sort of "insurance" to recover detail in adverse shooting conditions. It obviously shouldn't be a crutch, but that is nice to know.

    I also think that...

    Left image seems to have more red cast to me. Based on the new Ursa color science, that makes me thing the right image is the Ursa. I honestly just don't know enough about the Pocket sensor to pick...

    Urgh, this makes me want to keep my BMPCC, haha.

    Really like the look of this. What aperture were you shooting at?

    The noise/grain is ridiculously better compared to the DNG. I agree, it looks pretty filmic already. I've never really liked the noise/grain in BMD cameras, but I love it now.

    I actually got the opposite impression, at least early on. Even in threads here, there were some concerns that it was too sharp and "lifeless" and it was put down to the extremely sharp lenses being...

    I thought the previous advice was that sensor calibration was not necessary on a daily basis? Can't remember who said that--maybe Frank or John? But isn't it not actually doing any calibration, it's...

    Very curious to see moire tests as well. BRAW looks noticeably softer, but not to an off-putting degree, at least in the tests I've shot. Definitely something to be aware of, esp. when it comes to FX...

    It's a little hard to tell but check the red square in both shots. The BRAW shot has a lot of obvious fringing to the left and top of the red square.

    Note that the chart is not being shot straight...

  13. Color Science v4 with "old" Ursa Mini Pro footage--pros/cons?

    Now that I have Resolve updated to 15, I can select Color Science v3 or v4 for my RAW clips, regardless of whether they were shot with firmware 5.0 or firmware 6.0 (the latest update).

    Is there...

    Another vote for KomputerBay. I shoot regularly at RAW 4:1 at 4.6k and have never had a dropped frame. Have shot a good amount of 60-120fps, too.

    Yeah, your results seem to confirm what I'm seeing: a lot less noise in general and definitely a lot less FPN.

    Have there been any firmware 5.0 vs 6.0 comparisons yet? Comparing not just BRAW, but the 4.0 Color Science and how it compares to earlier versions.

    I shot some extremely unscientific tests of...

    I turn the camera off before I remove or add any media, but I feel this is a holdover from my PC building days, or maybe even when I used to use DSLRs? I've been on sets where guys don't do that, at...

    Yeah, the image at 2.8 is strangely muddled (and obviously) soft to my eye. I try not to go more open than 3.5 if I can help it. It is an unfortunate limitation, but I still think the lens has a...

    Thanks. I can only afford one 980ti at the moment. Thinking running that dual with my 970 would be okay? I've never mixed cards like that. Regardless, good info, thanks for the heads up.

    Hm, I never considered that! Adding another 970/980 would be around the same price if I went with EVGA. Sounds like that would offer better performance than a single card upgrade?

    My Biwins were fine at 60fps as long as I was recording to both cards. I can't remember my exact tests, but yeah, think I had dropped frames in RAW at 60fps recording to one card.
