    Kill switch ala bricking a stolen camera via firmware update is fine. Unfortunately, that doesn't help much, people would just not update their illegally obtained camera hardware.

    If there were...

    I wouldn't say this approach is better, it's different and has its own pros and cons. We do the same -- HDD based RAID backup -- in addition to tape. Some things to consider with the HDD approach...

    While true, the non-coverage of 6K+ for a few of the lenses isn't the driving force to sell them. Most cine primes on the market don't have any better coverage -- all the RPP's fully cover Super 35...

    Well, you'll get it sooner. More so if you didn't order in the first minutes or hour or so of the Weapon system going live in the RED store. If being early with new equipment, for rentals or...

    Unsecured or personal property tax is not a new thing and is a thing in many states. Usually it's at the city or county level -- we have it where I'm at in CO. It varies somewhat from place to...

    It's not just the online types that are pushing back against the non-4K Arri (and other) cameras out there. Starting to see demands from some bigger players now. I'm still shocked that Arri didn't...

    Even the Panasonic UHD TV's that had DisplayPort were terrible as computer monitors. Actually they were not great displays for any use. :(

    The only systems I really see that serve well for both...

    You're correct. Total brain fart here, I was quoting LTO-5 capacity. LTO-6 is 2.5TB uncompressed (yeah, you get about 2.4TB, give or take a bit) and with up to 2.5:1 compression it can...

    Someone please report how well the update and new features are working! I need to live vicariously through someone until my woven CF Weapon arrives.

    I'm thinking that the first batch will go to those who ordered at NAB, in the order they submitted their order/payment -- regardless of whether they initially take delivery of a woven or forged...

    LTO is a good option for data archival. It's not perfect, but there really isn't a better solution at this time. LTO tapes are usually advertised with compressed capacities, which is fine and great...

    The primary advantage you're going to see by going to the older Mac Pro 5,1 tower is the additional cores. 12-cores is going to outperform your nMP's 6-cores pretty easily in apps (like Resolve) that...

    mLogic was supposed to release their mTape-Connect unit which has both TB2 and USB3 connectivity, but it seems to have vanished from their product map after announcing late last year. No experience...

    Aahh... You're killin' me. I want my 8K yesterday, but didn't pony up the extra $10K for forged over woven... You're almost getting me to pick up the phone and spend the extra premium. Almost. ;)

    Next up after the 18 and 135, I'm hoping for a 14, or even a 12 would be better. Then follow that with a 40 and a 60. Would love the 60 to have macro ability.

    Most any car sold in N. America in the past 10 years has mount points for child seats -- these are amazingly solid and easy to attach ratcheting straps or other supports to. To take it one step...

    First of many to come with the new 3D NAND tech and other flash memory advancements over the past year or so. And these will be a lot cheaper than people expect. I can't say more than that, but you...

    Are you working at 120fps? That's a big deal if you are, that's the same as four of those 4KHD streams playing back at 30fps. If you shot it at 120fps, that's irrelevant, and we would then want to...

    Almost makes me wish I coughed up the $10K premium to get the forged body a bit sooner.... Then again, I've been so busy lately with other things my Dragon seems to be collecting dust. :(
