This was posted in another thread, but it definitely deserves it's own topic.

This was so very well done and informative...I feel like I owe Marco tuition.

Thanks Peter, I didn't notice that. Tuition paid.

Well done. Now that's some useful information, presented in a plain and simple way.

Helpful video for those not accustomed to raw photography (and by extension cinematography).

Once you shoot raw stills, going over to a more than moderately compressed, delivery bit depth (8-bit) codec in video is a bummer.

The main point about a 12-bit source converted to 8-bit is superior to an 8-bit source is a significant and well-presented one. I can't tell you how many people I've seen dismiss the BMCC as a worthwhile option simply because they only produce web content, or because they only edit in 8-bit NLE's.

12-bit means it can store detailed information about the scene in a way that can be moved around and the accuracy of the changes are then fully granular across the 8 bits in the output. It's like having more sauce than you need so you can make a choice about how much you want and where and not have to spread it thin.

Food analogies ;)

Both of Marco's videos on the BMDCC were informative and extremely well shot. A++ Thanks Marco. :) I signed up as well.

That was great. This stuff should be required viewing on any modern film making forum. It would stop some of the dumb comments that show when folks don't get basic principles in modern digital imaging. It's a shame that complaint threads are getting more attention. :(

Great stuff! :) Thanks for posting!

This is probably the best explanation and examples I've seen of this. Trying to explain this to clients isn't always easy, and they don't always get it. Maybe from now on I'll just show then this video.

I wonder if people will finally drop the "sharpen brings out detail" claim for Mark III footage, now. =P Probably not.

Probably not. PB started that one in his 5DIII review, and we all know how many followers he has.

I think JCS did on cinema5D but splitting hairs and no doubt PB probably made it a much more popular idea. It does help the image at times though. So...
