AdamD: I do find that some material is more prone to the SOE. For example, in Quantum of Solace, in the early car chase sequence when the cars get to the mining area, you can see that two cameras were used, and one appears to be a video camera, because the SOE drastically appears then disappears.
AnotherDude: If you never noticed the SOE, then I'm sure you're not too sensitive to it, but I'll look into trying your settings. Thank you.
ddog750: Now I said no posts telling me the SOE is more natural (or realistic), and there you go.
In my experience, the few people who like this effect are frequently younger folks, who did not grow up with film, may have never shot a film camera, and who instead grew up with computer screens. So computerish looking movies seem more realistic to them.
