    Yes. No joke, half price, less than 8 months old, bought from original owner with all his original sales paperwork, etc.. He had it for 8 months and hardly used it, took a $26K hit because he was in...

    It's awesome for that. I just bought an Optimo 45-120 for $21,500 last week. ;)


    As for the Ultras for $5K/lens, it takes some digging, but I've found a few sets. I'm trying to buy one of them...

    OK, I'm totally stumped here. But WTF is up with the glass market lately??? New lenses are still selling briskly at their usual hefty price tags. But the used market has taken a total nose-dive...

    No DCP.

    There was originally supposed to be a REDRAY PRO unit that would also support DCP and other forthcoming cinema distribution formats in addition to .RED. It seems to have dissipated into...

    REDCINE-X seems to suffer the same problem as well. No performance increase of note when I check off to activate more than one GPU, even if the first GPU shows it's being stressed. RED originally...

    Encode performance depends on what you are encoding with (software) and what format/ codec you are encoding to. Adobe Media Encoder does use the GPUs (including the D700's) for certain encode...

    Peter,

    Have you actually taken precise measurements to see if your set of RPP's are truly out of spec? I've mounted RPP's on Arri 235 and 435, Alexa, F65 and a couple others. The F35 gave us...

    6+ cores new Mac Pro w/ D700s and 32~64GB RAM will tear through 4K and even 5K R3D footage no problem, especially for transcodes at 1/2. 6K is a different story. Rocket-X provides for faster than...

    WTF??? Why so cheap? People probably aren't buying because they think something is wrong with it. I'm tempted to buy and re-sell. If I didn't already have the 16-42 and 30-80 zooms I'd snatch...

    The M and MX both showed the magenta OLPF flare. Dragon also shows it with the original OLPF and it can get particularly nasty in situations where the OLPF was installed backwards. Technically, all...

    The Null lens is indeed not compatible with EPIC/Scarlet MX. However, it is in fact compatible with Dragon and needs no modification for use on Epic/Scarlet Dragon. We shall see if this remains the...

    I know we keep questioning your choice of the K5000 GPU and it really is a fine GPU. The reason why we're questioning is that you will get...

    The 16-42 fully covers Dragon to about 5.5K at all focal lengths. For coverage at 6K FF we see noticeable vignetting at the wider focal lengths. I want to say that we get full coverage back when...

    Would love a 60mm focal length in this set and that would be a fine choice for a Macro as well, IMO. :)

    Seems the 100mm is still "any day now" as it has been for the past month or two... No...

    Just a word of warning here. If you're running the 512GB turbo mags, you will need more than just the +5V from the USB port -- we have to plug in both the original and mini readers into AC power...

    Are you sure you want that K5000 GPU? What drove you to pick the mid-range Quadro vs. a GeForce card?

    SSD's in a RAID are somewhat hit or miss. Newer SSDs are doing better with this, but I would...

    Focal length won't look any different than if you put any other lens of the same focal length on the camera. If you buy a 100mm Ultra prime, or a 100mm Canon EF, or a 100mm Voigtlander, or a 100mm...
