It's not really a limitation of the camera... it's more about workflow.

The camera could have easily captured using normal colors on set and using normal makeup and prosthetic coverage.

This is a technique that they are using to help create a specific look.

When they said the RED camera tends to eat color... that's kind of true in that when you first see the content RAW it is a very flat image. But that is what you want. It's a "fat negative". You want latitude/wide dynamic range to work within.

You don't want your highs to high and your lows to low (if you will) at the moment of capture. You want the ability to adjust in post. This is not a "Fix it in post mentality".

It is an intentional workflow to provide the greatest creative and visual latitude possible.

Middle Earth is New Zealand!
