hello, i have a query about si2k. can anyone working with the cam suggest me that i'm getting pretty soft images with the cam. is it to do with the cam sensor or the optics?? i was using s16 8-64 zoom lens.
Could you post an image? 2k Bayer is fairly soft the SI looks the same as the RED @ 2K IMHO.

It won't have edge enhancement, so it'll have softer look compared to video.

Yes, the SI-2K does not have the 'video sharpness' of other HD cameras but you can always dial in detail sharpness in post if you like that look - but that wont help if the lens is soft.
Are you judging the soft look on the camera monitor/viewfinder or in post at full rez?

Q1 & 2 will be softer.

Having said that, if it is really soft, like almost SD soft, it may be the lens. If you are using and old C mount 16m lens you probably won't get all the sharpness the camera can produce.

From my experience with cameras like the F900, HDC-1500, etc., a similar "softness" can be achieved with the Sony cameras that allow you to turn the sharpness all the way off.

But, I saw Slumdog in theaters and the camera not only looked soft, it looked extremely noisy as well. Noisy in shadows and midtones, I even saw pixels firing to white and back. It was strange.
