“Storaro actually arrived hours earlier in the day to make sure the projection was just as he intended,” she writes. “The gorgeous imagery was, uniquely, screened from a 12-bit uncompressed 4K DPX file (rather than a commonly used Digital Cinema Package), playing off a Clipster postproduction system and displayed with a Sony 4K projector — meaning that the Cine Gear presentation of the movie had more resolution and color tonality than today’s most commonly used digital cinema projectors.
“A few years ago it was film or digital,” Storaro said on Friday. “It was a difficult choice. Producers thought digital was cheaper — not true. Or it’s faster — not true. [But] when Woody called me, I said ‘You can’t stop process.’ [With 2K] I thought ‘what about the rest of the information?’ You lost it. The camera had to be 4K 16-bit. When I met the Sony F65, I said, ‘This is the camera we are supposed to use.'”
Reddit commenter “holomntn”: “I wouldn’t buy any of them right now. All the sensors are old in tech terms so all the companies are prepping replacements. Red already announced the 8K and Weapon. Arri is ‘allegedly’ working on a 6K Super-35 sensor. Sony has the rumored rolling Bayer pattern sensor. Within 18 months we should see all the top-tier cameras replaced.”
