Gemini 44

I’m putting the finishing touches on some videos I shot with Jonny Durango and his F3. We played with the S-Log and a couple different external recorders including the Gemini 444.  There’s not a lot of stuff out there with this recorder so hopefully it’ll be useful to some people who are interested in using it. I’ll go into the images you’re getting in more detail in the video but in terms of the workflow there are definitely some pros and cons. On the plus side the Gemini is very user friendly, robust and easy to figure out. On the downside you’re looking at a little under a terabyte an hour in terms of storage which gets expensive. Add that to the hassle of dealing with the DPX files the Gemini produces and the balance of great, color correctable images versus ease of use and cost becomes closer to a wash.
