or the tsunami? Not to be insensitive but that would have captured history better than a camera phone.

I have my RED ONE but instead of going around shooting, I've been helping English speaking people by providing fast translations of the news and warnings. My family members are in the devastated area and lacking water, electricity, food and everything else, I didn't see any reason to shoot or show off the footage of the tragedy.

Hi Kaku. I am sorry for the tragedy your family is facing. I think Gary just meant to ask if anyone happened to be shooting in 4K or slow motion when the quake hit. Such footage might be useful to scientists, architects and engineers in preparing for future earthquakes as it would provide more information than video. I agree such footage should only be used to help and not to exploit.
Is there anything the REDUser community or I might be able to do to help your family members?

From a scientific point, I think alot of professionals would value any higher-resolution footage of these natural disasters.
We have a production base in Belize and are on the tsunami warning system. Trust me, I've been studying much of the Japan footage from a personal standpoint..."IF we were to get a warning, would our offices and homes be wiped out?"
I was on assignment in Thailand just over a year ago, and found the visit to Phuket very surreal, wondering how and where all that water went. It was very strange trying to understand the hydrodynamics of such an event - even when you are actually at ground zero. For me, it was still very much unbelievable.
With regards to the recent events, our prayers are with your family members.
