    Two birds

    Gotcha Robert. Your notes might answer my question about "what changed" between DSMC2 and Komodo.

    I still think there might be some interest in a power solution that included a short run battery...

    Agree that going DC-AC-DC is less efficient - but, in most cases, it will keep your camera safer. Going direct from a vehicle cigarette lighter to camera is way more risk than I would take.

    Attaching any cable or battery with a voltage already present risks a spike at the moment of connection. Typically, this is dealt with by providing a safe, low resistance ground path (referred to as...

    Looking back, I still marvel at all the amazing artists I met through the RED Rebellion. Brad Hagen is a good example - smart, funny and a great human being.

    Found a company, Zitay, that offers a CFast "dummy" card tethered to an external SSD.

    https://www.zitay.net/CFAST-to-SSD-c21055.html

    Now, if they can go from the "dummy" card to a 10GigE port...

    Tethered recording with Komodo?

    Use case: recording R3Ds to external media from a Komodo. Ideally, direct ingest to a big RAID.

    On DSMC2 it's possible to use the ethernet adapter for off board recording. Due to bandwidth...
  8. Compared to what?

    There are so many aspects to the impact of frame rate on how we perceive motion content. Some are primarily technical; motion blur, judder, cadence, etc. Others are more about how the wetware...

    Great thread. Like many, I consider the Sigmas the reference point for price/performance. The real kicker, at least in my world, is how small the Sigmas are. From the owner/op perspective, you want a...

    FWIW, you might be best off with a second power source dedicated to the Teradek and FF RX. I can see a lot of benefit to building out a cheese plate solution that hosts the Teradek, FF RX and battery...

    FWIW, I always set on camera ISO to 800 for consistency in judging the monitor image. To get the most "meat" into the data set, I like to change the iris while watching the histogram and look for the...

    Even IF Komodo has only 12.2 stops of useable DR, that should be plenty for all but corner cases. Even with HDR, how many displays can actually show more than 10 stops? Yes, it's nice to have...

    At the risk of stating the obvious, the farther in the future DSMC3 drops - the longer you'll have to ROI your current RED.

    Just sayin'

    Considering the performance level of current offerings and the healthy demand for Komodos, I see no reason to rush DSMC3 to market.

    As others have noted, RED has a lot more competition than early...

    The Sony holds chroma much better in the shadows. It's a low light beast.
