So I shot a quick bts video of a photoshoot with Diana and a couple photographers. I was about to do a photoshoot with my RED Weapon and pull the stills from it so this was a quick/good test to do that. The 35MP resolution in 60fps for 90%+ of the shots, shot 80fps in 6k for a few sure was awesome to pull stills from! The only thing I wish I did differently was bring my Nisi IRND filters, feel that there's too much IR pollution with the Tiffens-nothing I can adjust with the r3d files.
But yeah no lighting, reflectors, tripod, gimbal... Nothing. Don't know why the Helium sensor gets so much hate. With RED's newer color science IPP2 the highlight rolloff to my eye is smoother than Arri's Log C curve. Sure the highlights aren't as good as the Dragon was but it makes up for it in the shadows.
