I'm not sure if this is the best section for this thread, so feel free to move it to the correct area. Also, apologies if there is an existing thread. I looked but couldn't find anything.

I'm shooting a feature film next year and I'm considering shooting on the Red. I've shot a music video with it, but not a feature. And I'm curious to hear people's thoughts, their complaints, their praises, their issues.

So, I thought that this could be a thread for people to share production stories with regards to shooting on the RED.

I look forward to hearing your feedback.

Expect issues/problems (regardless of camera used)... Bring patience...

Have someone uber familiar with the R1 system either as a tech or camera assistant/operator...

Playback in B17 can be an issue if you're recording audio... Record it separately as well...

Have plenty of hard drives/CF cards...
10 batteries, 3 chargers...


Have fun -
