Last day…

… and the curls are back.

Also…, I wonder, who’s birthday it is today?

… birthday garlands and birthday hats?

… And finally, is there a dress code for Claire Pritchard’s make up design team?

Striped shirts, and long sleeves in July?

Oh, wait, there isn’t!

Although they look as if they tend to dress alike:


That was yesteday night, by the way.

So…, are we possibly fooled again?

Because this picture was taken back in June:


… hmmm…





Mycroft called out of a formal event?

Wow I knew he was kinda dressed up but that is bizarre. Why would Mycroft be dressed like that in that location??? Pulled away from an event to handle whatever trouble his brother has gotten into??

My thoughts exactly. The o.p on Twitter is now saying it was at The Cardiff Civic Centre.


Ruther asked for some info about this pic ^ for #setlock.  

If this is for Sherlock once S4E2 airs we’ll know *exactly* which shot they used this camera for. My money is on Sherlock vision and/or assassin cam.

This ^ is a 4k Flex high speed Phantom camera – it does stuff like this in 4k HD:

None of the series eps so far were shot in 4k b/c it costs too much to store that much data during production. I don’t think that they’ll actually shoot 4k with an eye towards broadcasting or screening the episode in that high of resolution. (Most digitally shot movies you see in the theater are still 2k- that’s slowly changing. By S5 they might consider 4k?) 

The Gratical Eye is the round mebobber with the eye cup.  It’s an ultra lightweight Electronic View Finder (EVF)- what you look through on a camera to see what you’re shooting. It’s OLED which means it’s high resolution, high dynamic range basically. Blacks are black. (OLED EVFs are pretty new.) I’m guessing the camera operator intends to use the EVF and the focus puller will use the OLED monitor next to/behind it. (Don’t get me going on monitors and LUTs and grading!)

That lens is long. Are they using the Phantom for a telephoto shot?
