View Full Version : LocaRed successful -5 celcius degree shoot in Lyon, France

I know that the Red team is working on an improved version of the camera to handle -20 degree but I wanted to let people know that we're doing a shoot in cold weather in Lyon France right now and that the camera was able to perform really nice for an entire night at -5 degree celcius.
Of course we used a lot of warming pads and covers; as Jim mentioned you need to baby sit your camera at all times, but quite often it had almost no protection and it behaved really nicely with no failure whatsoever.
I attached a few picks; this short film is one of the first major projects that our camera and LocaRed is doing in France with an entire week of filming just with the Red.

Oh, I was just there, but back in London now. Looks like a good production. My crew and our Red will be spending some time in Paris, so if you're ever looking for a B-cam, we'll do our best to help you out.

No problems with condensation after the shoot right? The warming pads should have kept it warm enough.

We shot 9 hours in -6 C today. No warm pads, just a little cover and the fan set to variable. But we kept the camera on the whole day. Thanks to this community we were prepared.
