Fusion Cine invites you to join them for an in-depth workshop about High Dynamic Range, Log, Raw and Gamma and learn how to achieve “the film look” with Alister Chapman. 

Session 1: Size Matters.
In this seminar we will look at:
  • The history of video camera sensor sizes
  • Where do the different sizes come from
  • Why the shift towards larger sensors?
  • The strengths of a larger sensor
  • Why are zoom lens options so limited with larger sensors
  • The strengths of a smaller sensor
  • New sensor technologies that are narrowing the performance gap
  • If you shoot at f5.6 is there any point to a large sensor camera?
  • What can a small sensor camera do that a large sensor can’t?

HDR - What is HDR and what do you need to know to complete an HDR production. Log and gamma - What do these terms really mean, which should you use and how do they effect what I shoot. Raw - What is meant by “raw” and is it really necessary? What are the pros and cons of shooting raw.
