Christophe LARUE's insight:

The Kodak Super 8 system is a brilliant film format that inspired thousands of wonderfully well made Super 8 cinema cameras. Unfortunately, the proprietary film cartridges are no longer in production and existing supplies are quickly diminishing.

Video Aspect Ratios

Video Aspect Ratios | Cinematography | Scoop.it
Christophe LARUE's insight:

A video’s aspect ratio is an important creative choice that can affect the feel of footage, but it’s also a key technical consideration that affects how and where this footage can be displayed. This article gives an overview of the various capture settings and applications.

Can You Seamlessly Intercut Canon 5D Mark III RAW & RED SCARLET Footage? « nofilmschool

Can You Seamlessly Intercut Canon 5D Mark III RAW & RED SCARLET Footage? « nofilmschool | Cinematography | Scoop.it
Christophe LARUE's insight:

While you always want to choose the right camera for the job, sometimes you have to deal with what you have. There are times when you might have a RED SCARLET (or maybe even a RED EPIC), but maybe you need something that’s a little more light-sensitive as a B-cam for specific shots, or you might need dual-coverage and you’ve already got a second camera handy. What if that second camera is a Canon 5D Mark III, and you’ve enabled theMagic Lantern hack so that you can shoot RAW? How would the two cameras stack up against each other?

Using Aspect Ratios Like a Pro (Part 1): Why Choose One Ratio Over Another ?

Using Aspect Ratios Like a Pro (Part 1): Why Choose One Ratio Over Another ? | Cinematography | Scoop.it

When DPing a film, one of the first decisions that I always make with the director is the aspect ratio of the final product. Deciding this early on is important, because it informs and shapes many of the other stylistic choices that you make down the road.

Christophe LARUE's insight:

There is the Academy Standard of 1.37, the HDTV standard of 1.78, Vistavision’s 1.85 and more. - See more at: http://vashivisuals.com/every-filmmaking-aspect-ratio-for-free/#sthash.FIyZjRrZ.dpuf

Know Your WaveForm! RGB vs. Luma in the Field

Know Your WaveForm! RGB vs. Luma in the Field | Cinematography | Scoop.it
Christophe LARUE's insight:

Proper exposure in HD is not always easy. Meter readings don’t always match what the camera sees. Zebras tell us where highlights are clipped but that’s about it. False color gives us broad stroke references… but the most useful tool overall is the waveform monitor. The problem is that there are two kinds: both are extremely useful, but for completely different things.

The ASC: Christopher Doyle Interview : The Artistic Process « The Film Book | Cinematography | Scoop.it
Christophe LARUE's insight:

Christopher Doyle was born in Australia, but after years of roaming, he finally settled in Hong Kong, and his work as a cinematographer there helped to define the beautiful formalism of contemporary Asian cinema. He is best known for his collaboration with Wong Kar-Wai, for whom he shot 7 films including Chungking Express, Happy Together, 2046 and the sublime In the Mood for Love, a reference for many students of cinema.

Magic Lantern Breakthrough: Canon 5D Mark III & 7D Now Capable of 14 Stops of Dynamic Range « nofilmschool | Cinematography | Scoop.it

The breakthroughs keep coming. Magic Lantern did the unthinkable and figured out how to get RAW video out of Canon cameras, and now they’ve managed to increase the native dynamic range of the image without using an HDR method of varying light and dark frames, which can cause serious motion artifacts.

It’s Alive! First Cinema DNG Frames from the Digital Bolex

It’s Alive! First Cinema DNG Frames from the Digital Bolex | Cinematography | Scoop.it
Christophe LARUE's insight:

When I was first dreaming of this camera, I would spend hours looking at frames of S16mm film and comparing them to the compressed HD video that was accessible to me. At the time video was highly compressed, skin tones looked mushy, dark tones were blocky, and large areas of subtle gradations just completely fell apart. By contrast film rendered gradations, skin tones, roll off, and blow outs beautifully.

Metabones and Caldwell Photographic Introduce Speed Booster

Metabones® is the leading lens mount adapter manufacturer, best known for the award-winning, "brighter, wider, sharper" Speed Booster™
Christophe LARUE's insight:

It increases maximum aperture by 1 stop (hence its name), increases MTF and has a focal length multiplier of 0.71x. For example, the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II lens becomes a 59mm f/0.9 lens on a Sony NEX camera, with increased sharpness.
