    I’d be interested to know how you got to the “processed” image.

    Hey Tim.

    Your and Phil’s messages did cross. Read his answer, just before yours.

    I apologize, but I do not see his answer.

    Yea, I don’t see the answer either and am very interested how he got that processed image.

    Well, it’s really there! Phil writes on the 30th of january:

    To clarify here, “Marvels 3.x flattened and processed” means:

    I’ve applied a secondary curve to the image that I normally apply to images when shooting out on an ArriLaser. Also at this stage, I’ve applied noise reduction, sharpening, and in this particular example added a fine grain profile from a film stock to give it the appearance of a more natural film look.

    Often I have to blend digital content with material shot on Super35 and basically this is a process I’ve been using for a few years now.

    I’m going to use this ps.I had read that with this 200ISO is better, less noisy, than 160 and that 100 and 125ISO is very noisy, it’s true?

    Using extracted images to assess ‘quality’ or performance is always a tricky one because there are many ways to extract any given frame.

    For example looking at the 1920×1080 jpg images particularly the Canon Neutral frame, I’m surprised at how low the unique color count is considering the lighting. I’d expect to see twice the unique colours ie: fidelity for such a shot, especially as even the Neutral frame is full range yet very low colour count and the fully processed has very little more.

    I wouldn’t consider the reason to be due to the camera profile, probably just the way the images have been extracted, but I think there is a lot more to see in those frames than has been converted to image format, I’d love to test that theory with a small sample of that shot, if you could make it available, I’d post my results and would appreciate your feedback on those as to whether you consider an improvement in fidelity over and above what you have already.
