I am interested in determining 'best resolution' using the Red Epic Camera in 5K with a sharp lens.
My method is as follows:
Red Epic at 5K with 3:1 compression ei 800 and an Arri Master Macro 100mm with a T5.6 pointed at a Century test chart at 51 X focal lengths as described in the instructions. I very carefully checked the flange depth on the camera. Very carefully checked focus.
I shot a clip at 24fps and then debayered using Red Cine X software and taking a full resolution still as a 16bit Tif. and exporting the still. I then examined the still using Photoshop and enlarging (pixel peeping) the image.
My results are: 56 lines/mm
Any thoughts? I looked for help on the Red User Board but have not gotten any feedback there as of yet.
