  1. Thanks Thomas, for your answer. What is it about the XAVC that you don't like? R.
  2. Hi Amada, thanks for your answer, and your insights. I was asking for a more objective viewpoint than just liking something or not. Maybe re-read my example when I talk about shooting with Alexa vs RED cameras. You are right to point out there are a lot of other factors involved in making a decision about what camera to use. This is just another one. Rob
  3. Hi Nicolas, Thanks for answering. Indeed choosing between cameras is personal, but I was asking a simple question - which system offers more flexibilty - not asking which system looks better. When shooting I also prefer working with Alexa over RED cameras, but I do know that RED offers more shooting versatility. I can take a step back and have an objective viewpoint. What do you think about the idea that .r3d files are 16 bit linear, which is comparable to 12bit log encoding used in Prores? Thanks again, best Rob ps yes working on an Indian feature is not always easy.
  4. Hi Amado, you did say you didn't like Sony, but I was asking for a more objective viewpoint. Shooting Alexa is not an option for me, neither is shooting 16bit RAW on the Venice. Shooting Prores on the Venice is for HD proxies only. My post house is in India, and they don't speak English. Thank you, Rob
  5. Thanks Amado. So in your experience the .r3d files have more flexibility than XAVC 10bit? best Rob
  6. Hi all, I'm a cinematographer put in the position of having to choose a camera for a feature by tomorrow, without any testing. The project requires a heavy grade and I was wondering if I was stating the obvious by thinking that shooting 16-bit (linear/log?) 5:1 .r3d files is a better choice than opting for XAVC 10bit. Knowing Sony quite well I think the Venice will hold up better with over/underexposure than the RED Helium, so will give a better image out of the box. And I know the XAVC codec is quite robust... Does anyone have any experience working with either Venice (internal) footage vs RED Helium footage? Thank you, Rob Wilton DoP | London
