This is a beautifully shot 808 video shared with us by Christopher Westerholm. He wanted to see what it would be like as a cinema camera and how the video codec would hold up when graded.
It looks wonderful. I love the smooth panning dolly shots, very cinema like indeed.
Remember to choose 1080p for highest quality! This is just a test I made for myself so I could see how a mobilephone could hold up as a cinema camera. I did a flatpicture profile in the phone by dialing down “contrast, saturation and sharpness” and under exposed some of the scenes to protect highlights. I also used a mattebox, and 4’4 polarizing, and for some of the brighter scenes a 4’4 ND filter 0.9. I later upscaled the fotage in premiere pro too later crop it for 2.35.0 aspect ratio. I colorcorrected quite heavely caused i think i pushed the contrast a little bit to much so it all looked very flat. Quite impressive latitude for a mobilephone and especially for a sensor that got 41 million pixel to downscale it to 2 million pixel without any moire or aliasing! Better downscaling than the GH 2! Impressive tech, Nokia! All was shot in 30 fps, then converted to 23,976fps to make a little dreamy slowmotion.
Thanks Christopher for the tip!
