35mm/HD Comparison

Recently digital cameras are getting closer to the look of 35mm film. This is due in part to using the same PL mounted cine lenses as well as a S35 sensor. These new digital cameras like the Red Epic and the Alexa camera have the ability to record raw data. The scope for grading RAW footage is better than cameras which bake in a colour space. Raw data is essentially "What the sensor saw", this means we can change white balance setting before we process the raw data giving us more more flexability in post.
