    Call them cheese graters, trash cans, form over function, whatever - at the end of the day it seems like the kind of nickname denigration regularly used by a certain reality TV personality.

    I...

    Good observation/question. I can't imagine using anything other than a fresh DSC Labs chart on a feature. They make a smaller version of their "one shot" chart that is specifically supported by...

    With the Tokyo Olympics roughly a year away, I would expect the universe of shipping 8K cameras to expand rather quickly. Will any of them have 8KRAW spigots? Perhaps, but how many? I do expect...

    FWIW, I think RedUsers are the bullseye of the target market for the 7,1 MacPro. I fully expect a $12-20K MP 7,1 config to be fabulous for the workflows most of us use. I would further suggest that...

    Can we please stop comparing the announced base model against pimped PCs - it's pointless. The more relevant comparo would be in the $8-12K range. I'd imagine the Apple Tax would still be...

    nVidia put resources into not just creating the CUDA hardware, but supporting the infrastructure for coding. If Apple is willing to make a similar investment in fostering a strong development...

    I would love to see Apple put some $ into coding resources to facilitate Metal optimization - if for no other reason than to provide competition for nVidia/CUDA.

    If you have good rental options nearby, I suggest owning very little gear. If your location is bereft of proper rental shops, then owning may be worth the investment/upkeep. Shipping based rental...

    With legit eGPU support - including nVidia - the new MBP would be sweet. Sadly, even the top level internal GPU options max out at 4GB of VRAM. Max BTO system RAM is 32GB, so caching frames for...

    As a general rule, for RED post you want as much VRAM as you can afford. That said, if the price delta to go from 8 to 11GB is insane...

    My protocol uses two readers and two independent systems (one or both is typically a laptop) that I use to copy the RedMags in separate instances. No copies of copies and the only potential point of...

    In the field I live on the little Samsung T5 external SSD drives. I'm also the guy who segregates copying instances for true redundancy, so perhaps my perspective is skewed.

    To borrow one of Phil's favorite adages, is the juice worth the squeeze? Is Apple capable of making a Mac for content creators that would fit our needs? If they really want to, probably yes. How much...

    A "brain" case, larger than tcMP/G4 cube but smaller than a full tower, designed to house components with reasonable TDP could be the centerpiece of a modular ecosystem. Previous efforts at "compact"...

    Mine have held up well. As much as I dislike stacking filters, I decided to use standard NDs and Schneider's 750nm Tru-cut IR filter (sometimes referred to as a hot mirror) for exteriors. Not for...

    I'd look at the RTX 2080 vs the RTX 2080Ti. If the price delta isn't too much, and the particular Ti version you're shopping has significantly more VRAM, it should be worth the extra spend. Depending...

    Variable, screw on NDs can be very useful. That said, they will soften your image (which can be helpful on close ups).

    I don't think the PremPro team has had time to code for RED's latest SDK just yet. If it's implemented well, it should be roughly as fast as in RCP-X. My suggestion is the 2080Ti card or P5000...
