I'd love to hear how you liked working with the genesis, any problems or surprises specific to that camera?

Honestly no problems whatsoever. I should point out I wrote and directed this. The DOP was Christopher Ross (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2131733/) He'd previously shot 'London to Brighton' and had used the Genesis for second unit work on 'Atonement '. The on-set situation is exactly the same as with film only I felt a little more at ease with just letting the camera roll (great for for working with actors) and a faster work-flow in post, of course. Looks to me like a beautifully scanned 35mm neg, though the bulk of that is down to Chris who really is a huge talent.
I do enjoy the fact that it's cutting edge technology. It was funded through Film London Digital shorts scheme so shooting on a digi format was mandatory. Most of the other films in the scheme are shot on Digibeta or the equivalent - some with Varicam, etc - and I did think shooting digital was the compromise I had to make for getting the money to make it. But having used this camera I'm now a complete convert. I'll be going the digital route on my next project without a doubt. If only there were more 4k equipped cinemas out there!
