James Bond takes a shot at 4K with new digital effects on `Quantum of Solace`
"Quantum of Solace", the 22nd film in the James Bond franchise, will feature a complex visual effects shot captured digitally in 4K resolution, which offers four times the amount of picture information typically captured by most digital cinematography cameras, notes the Hollywood Reporter.

The shot for the Marc Forster-helmed title is being lensed using eight shutter synchronized 4K Origin cameras from Dalsa, one of only two companies now shipping 4K digital cinematography cameras. Specifics are being kept under wraps, but the shot will feature Daniel Craig in his role as James Bond and Olga Kurylenko as the film's lead Bond girl, Camille.

Director of photography Roberto Schaefer and consulting visual effects cinematographer David Stump collaborated on the shot.

"The Dalsa Origin was the only uncompressed, high-resolution, low-noise camera system we could count on to do what we needed to do," visual effects designer Kevin Tod Haug said.

Added Stump: "Working with uncompressed 4K gave us the ability to mine the maximum amount of detail from the scene."

Dalsa shipped the camera packages from Los Angeles to Movietech Camera Rentals at Pinewood Studios in the U.K., where both companies prepped the cameras, which recorded 4K data to eight Codex digital disk recorders. In total, more than 3.8GB of image data were recorded every second, Dalsa Digital Cinema president Rob Hummel said. The Codex disk packs were delivered to Sohonet in London for backup, after which the files were delivered to London-based visual effects house Double Negative.

"For the effects to keep pace with audience expectations, we need to keep upping the ante," Stump said.

4K refer to images with 2048 and 4096 horizontal pixel resolution, respectively
Thus the future of digital cinema can be expected to have as a standard 4K capture and 4K projection. Currently in development are cameras capable of recording 4K RAW, such as the RED One and Dalsa Corporation's Origin.

and of course by actually improving the resolution and picture quality in the cinema, it's the best way to get those bums on the seats - and the only effective way to overcome piracy. After all, given a choice of a sub-DVD resolution DivX image or the 4K one, it's a no-brainer - innit?
