Hello to everyone. I recently found this forum and absolutely love it, especially many of its members and their knowledge (and a few have a great sense of humor as well).
I am putting together a complete camera package for a new client to begin shooting shorts, features and docu's. Originally, they wanted a couple Epics because they don't know anything about cinematography and believe the 5k marketing machine. So, I talked them into 2 Alexa's if they actually wanted to spend over $200k on just cameras. However, upon showing them the cost when including everything else needed to start filming as well as labor costs, they have decided that a pair of F3's with S-Log and Gemini recorders is the way to go.
From my research and experience, I prefer to buy zooms due to the faster pace they will allow and the high ISO ability of the F3 (and others) means I don't need faster than T2.8. My current wish list is this:
1 - Angx 14-42 DP Optimo
2 - Angx 30-80 DP Optimo (actually would get the matched pair designed for 3D)
1 - Zeiss 70-200 (expected release later this summer I think) or maybe a 100mm & a 135mm prime from Cooke or Zeiss and rent when longer is needed.
1 - Alura 15.5-45 T2.8
1 - Alura 30-80 T2.8
1 - Alura 45-250 T2.6
How do the Optimo DPs compare to the Aluras in terms of breathing, corner sharpness, resolution at max aperture?
Any and all thoughts are welcomed.
