Thanks for the replies, guys. Really appreciate it. I'm more pumped for the movie even more, especially for Claudio Miranda's cinematography.
Claudio is a Sony guy, and the venice is the replacement for the F65 so it makes sense.
I don't think the Venice will have any issues capturing a beautiful image. The F65 looks great in the last two Woody Allen movies and the Venice in my opinion looks pretty much the same.
This. Cafe' Society and Wonder Wheel are absolutely beautiful. I guess my mindset when I first posted about this was skewed due to the Alexa being Hollywood's go to camera. But that has changed now. More and more guys are starting to use the Venice.
When you ask "Is he better off using Venice?" What do you mean? Better off in what way? All three of the cameras are highly capable, and top of the line. This idea that Camera X is better than Camera Y is becoming increasingly irrelevant these days, particularly amongst the high end cameras. it's more a matter of personal taste.
Was wondering if it was the best camera for the job, and if it was competitive with the Alexas. From what I've read from you guys, the Venice is pretty great. And it's the best camera for the job due to its form factor, global-ish shutter, and detachable sensor.
I'm now fully confident that Top Gun 2 will look kickass. Claudio knows how to get great looking footage out of Sony cams more than anyone else.
And thanks for understanding and putting up with my naivety, guys. Just a film/cinematography newbie excited for Top Gun 2.
