This is a strange test. You should have put your iPhone next to it. It is necessary to show exactly those moments where the Fuji shits itself. And Fuji will thoroughly fail against the background of the Red Epic.
What's amazing is using a ProRes Raw recorder with the H2S, then using Play Pro Studio to extract the 1:1 Uncompressed CinemaDNG RAW video from the sensor. You'll have occasional dead pixels, and it eats up a motherlode of space, but seeing that 14-bit readout with no spatial NR or chroma-smoothing is absolutely astonishing.
When you say the only difference is camera body, you are being either biased or simply overlooking basics. For example Autofocus modes, IBIS, STACKED sensor with fast readout? Yes, some filmmakers may not need these, but hey, these features are included in Fuji for 1/3 of red price. You also havent mentioned how incomparable prices are for these. Fuji is also half the weight too, big deal as well, unless you never carried a camera :) And you can take photos with fuji! If you have done a fair all around comparison, looks like fuji would have destroyed the red
Great video and a really well done test. I owned an XH2s for a bit and used it alongside my Komodo and 1DXM3. I sold off the XH2S but really regret it now. Fantastic camera. I still own an XT5 and it scratches my Fuji itch but plan on buying an XH2S again soon.
One thing you did on this video that I have generally been doing for a while now is forgoing ND filters for higher shutter speeds / lower shutter angles. Motion blur is always something you can add back in post. Have a crisp image so you don’t get residual motion blur buzzing during post stabilization is really a life saver for some situations. I have owned some very expensive ND filters and despite claims to the contrary I feel like they always introduce some type of contamination to the image.
super cool and well recorded content, thank you. The only thing that worries me about choosing the Fuji xh2s, I hear it is very sharp, did you correct this in post production? Did you have any problem?
Helpful as always Evan!! Thanks for the tips!
Curious why you shot in 23.98 vs 24?
I suspect with most cameras even if you turn noise reduction and sharpening off there is still some level being processed in the camera.
Trash how about show their default colours? No added effects garbage and editing
Does the flog2 need to overexposed to right? (EV+) or Just use EV+0 , thank you!
Another thing to think about in terms of Fujifilm's sharpness (besides not using the 180 rule for motion blur) is that the X-H2s is also a photography camera where sharpness is important. So its actually serving two beasts whereas the Red is strictly for filmmaking.
can we use this luts on xs20 flog2? is it the same?
red is more true to life, fuji is a bit more vintagy vibe
red is better, but, they're also 6 times bigger, if not more
The main difference between the two cameras is that RED handles extreme highlights more pleasantly than the H2S. This could be an issue with Evan's LUT, but in the footage of the sun, the Fuji has a clearly visible clipped circle around the sun, while the RED is more of a gradient. F-Log and F-Log2 are known to be unkind to overexposure and I tend to underexpose for this reason, always checking the histogram for that wall of clipped white on the right hand side of the graph.
I really enjoyed this video
Fuji is better.
Xh2s is fantastic:)
Skintones on the A roll for the main video look a bit chalky. Like the highlights have been pulled down in a weird way.
